Product Description

Product Description

1980 collection from the stadium rockers, released at the height of the first stage of their career. Includes 'Dream On', 'Walk This Way', 'Come Together' and many more. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Amazon.ca

Even before their second fling with the pop mainstream, Aerosmith were one of Top 40's favorite hard-rock bands, so ubiquitous--and so funky--that Run-D.M.C. were vociferous fans. Their '70s output included at least three classic albums (Aerosmith, Toys in the Attic, and Rocks). This disc collects unstoppable singles into a horny, howling little piece of archaeology that makes even weak links like "Kings and Queens" sound great. And the truly great stuff here--"Sweet Emotion," "Last Child," "Dream On"--runs the gamut of style and feeling from swaggering freak-flag-flying to power-ballad roots that display a genuine ache. Your Aerosmith collection shouldn't end here, but this red-and-white bomb is a great place to start. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, but quite good (4 STARS) Feb. 20 2004
By JWK
Format:Audio CD
Many people agree with me that this "Greatest Hits" package could be better, and it is! There is a better compilation that has the same cover as this does, but the title reads "Aerosmith's Greatest Hits 1973-1988." Many of the tracks that fans have complained are missing are included, like "Mama Kin," "Seasons of Wither," "Lightning Strikes," a live version of "One Way Street," and maybe best of all "Chip Away the Stone," which hasn't been featured in its studio form on an album other than "Gems."
Anyhow, the ten songs of this compilation is expanded to 16 and it's about as good as any Aerosmith greatest hits package is going to get. I suggest you look for it in stores, since it doesn't seem to be here. You may have to buy it in a set with the first Aerosmith "Classics Live" CD which is pointless (though it does include "Major Barbara") but usually is only $15. Well worth the ticket price.
Aerosmith Greatest Hits: 8 out of 10. Aerosmith Greatest Hits 1973-1988: 9 out of 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start Nov. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
You gotta look at this CD as more of a "primer" to test the waters to see if you want more early Aerosmith CD's than as the end-all CD to replace all their other 70's albums. It only has ten songs, true, but bear in mind this is a 1980 release. 10 songs was pretty much the industry standard for any album back then. It contains severely edited versions of several songs, the most horrible example being "Sweet Emotion", which deletes the cool talk-box guitar intro and the coda section where it really kicks back in (this version just fades out). Once again, like it or not, this is typical of "greatest hits" albums (hey, the "hit" radio versions of songs typically ARE shortened versions of what you get on the albums). But for those of you only familiar with "Walk This Way", "Sweet Emotion", and "Dream On" from their 70's heyday, you'll find some nice surprises here. "Back In The Saddle", with its galloping rhythm and cool 12-string bass lines, is one of the best things they've ever done, and "Last Child" is a catchy funky number featuring some great Steven Tyler yelps at the end. "Same Old Song And Dance" is another riff-driven rocker with horns (Aerosmith had to be one of the pioneers of combining hard rock with horns). "Draw The Line" is a good noise-rocker that features a great slide guitar riff. People have griped about the inclusion of "Come Together" here, but keep it mind it's not available on any other Aerosmith albums other than the pricey "Pandora's Box". "Kings & Queens" and "Remember (Walking In The Sand)" don't do much for me, but they at least show a softer side of the band, leaning more towards art rock and 60's R&B respectively. Get this, let it grow on you, then pick up "Toys In The Attic" and "Rocks".

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so Greatest hits! June 21 2003
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Aerosmith is the greatest band of all time and this is suppost tp be their greatest hits of the 70's but it really isnt! While the songs they have on this collection a great they left some off. For example they forgot "Mama kin" "Seasons Of Wither" "Train Kep A Rollin'" "Toys In The Attic" "Big Ten Inch" and "No Surprize"
Dont get my wrong the songs they used are awsome like I said but they forgot some of Aerosmiths best songs.Another reason why this is not a real greatest hits is because on the song "Sweet Emotion" they edited out the intro and the long jam at the end, and on the song "Kings And Queens" they also edited ouy the cool intro! now all the songs they used are great and every Aero fn sould own this for the sake of owning this and if you are a new Aerosmith fan get this!, and if you have enough get "oh, Yeah Ultamate Hits". But be sure to get the albums because thats were they real magic is!

3.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sleazy! June 12 2003
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Ok I stole this tape from my brother when I was 6 and wore it out so I bought the cd. This is not a greatest hits album! Aerosmith had nothing to do with the release of this album the Columbia record company put this out, its missing songs like "Train kep a Rollinf", "Mama Kin", "Seasons Of Wither", "Big Ten Inch Record", "Nobodys Fault", "Chip Away At The Stone", and "No Surprize". But What this album does have are classic like Dream on, Walk This Way, Same Old Song And Dance, Draw The Line, Come Together, and Remember (Walking In The Sand), Last Child, and Back In The Saddle. But What it also has is Sweet Emotion which is one of the greatest songs of all time but on this cd the intro and the long jam at the end are cut off. and on the song Kings and Queens the intro to that is also gone. This is far from being a true greatest hits because of the bad edits and the songs that were left behind. If you are just getting into Aerosmith from the 70s get this and the album Gems (which has the songs that I said were left off!) and this is a must own for any die-hard Aerosmith fans like myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SONGS June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Greatest Hits by Aerosmith is quite an awesome cd. This is because it contains the groups best tracks from the seventies. It has 1 or 2 songs from their first 6 studio albums. It is a great document for people who are new to the band. I have heard all the albums these tracks come from & these are the best tracks from the period. Here is my rundown of each track.
Dream On - 10/10 - Brilliant ballad with a excellent vocal from Steve Tyler.
Same Old Song And Dance - 9/10 - Fine rock tune.
Sweet Emotion - 10/10 - Great song from Toys in the Attic.
Walk This Way - 9/10 - One of their most famous songs.
Last Child - 9/10 - Very funky.
Back In The Saddle - 10/10 - One of my favourites. Great playing from Joe Perry.
Draw The Line - 10/10 - Great song.
Kings And Queens - 9/10 - I like this one, a bit different.
Come Together - 8/10 - Good cover of a beatles song.
Remember (Walking In The Sand)- 8/10 - Good Song.

The only reason that there are only 10 songs is because this disc was made before their comeback in the 80's. Read more
