By the time this 1978 live album was recorded, Aerosmith were already falling into a steep decline, and the album plays testament to that. Several times on the album the band sounds completely fried, and Steven Tyler messes up the lyrics quite regularly. The band sounds out of rythem sometimes, and "Back in the Saddle" sounds REALLY off (although the heavy bass sound of the studio version is quite difficult to duplicate live).
That said, this is stil pretty good. The band on the whole perform decent renditions of all the Aerosmith classics, as well as a few rarities. The set list is pretty solid, with no huge holes in the canon of Aerosmith classics (though "Train Kept a Rollin" is sadly abbreviated).
Overall, this is a solid purchase for a fan of '70s Aerosmith. While it may not be great by any stretch of the imagination, it is competent enough.

This rough, tough and rowdy live album brings together 14 recordings from Aerosmith's 1977-78 tour, plus a couple of rarities from 1973 in the form of James Brown's "Mother Popcorn" and the Yardbirds' "I Ain't Got You".
The sound is very much live, with the loud, crunchy guitars of Joe Perry and Brad Whitford at the forefront, but it is also relatively clear, and not as cluttered as "A Little South Of Sanity". It is obvious that not a lot of overdubbing was involved to fix up the tracks, which results in a refreshingly authentic representation of Aerosmith at their best.
Almost every early Aerosmith classic is included: "Back In The Saddle" opens the CD, followed by "Sweet Emotion" and a seven-minute "Lord Of The Thighs".
The band's powerful version of John Lennon's "Come Together" is here as well, as is the superb "Walk This Way", the hard-rocking "Mama Kin", and one of Aerosmith's best and most underrated songs, Richie Supa's catchy "Chip Away At The Stone".
And "Draw The Line" is here as well, although it is unlisted (probably to tie in with the casual "bootleg" design of the album, which includes fake coffee stains on the back).
There are a couple of lesser songs as well, but most of what is here is simply excellent. "Live Bootleg" is a must for fans of Aerosmith's seventies output.
4 1/2 stars.

This was the 70's! Though this was not put out when Aerosmith was going strong in 75/76 this was put out when they were goin down in a blaze of glory, but who ever gave this less then five stars isnt a Aerosmith. All the songs are great live, and even thought they dont sound perfect like they do now when the band plays them they still sound better then most live albums. This is a live album that was not fixed in the studio like Kiss did and like The Who and Peter Frampton did. You will love this, it has great sound quality you can hear it all. Someone said Aerosmith never could perform 'Back In The Saddle' live, what a stupid thing to say every time I have heard the band play it live Steven hits all the notes, Perry plays the six string bass perfect, its all perfect. This whole album is great for a live album that was never messed with in the studio, I think this is the best live album ever made! This is not just for die hard fans this is for anyone who was ever interested in the band. Aerosmith is the greatest live band of all time, I mean that no one even comes close to them. You will love yourself so getting this but you'll hate yourself for not getting it sooner!

5 stars would be and understatement! I give it 50 stars! Anybody who doesn't like this compilation certainly doesn't like music! WOW. From beginning to end. All hard rock, all the time. From Back In The Saddle, to Last Child, to the INCREDIBLE Sick As A Dog, to Dream On, to Mother Popcorn, to TRAIN KEPT A ROLLIN'. Sick As A Dog is the so incredibly creative and different. At first when you listen to it, you will think its a ballad, then its fast, then back to the ballad. Its incredible. At the end of the song, they all switch guitars. Tom Hamilton plays guitar, Joe Perry plays bass, Steven Tyler plays guitar, and Brad Whitford, I assume, helps sing. Train Kept A Rollin' is amazing. The everyday Dream On NEVER fails. Walk This Way is incredibly done with Joe Perry on the talkbox. Read the Permanent Vacation reciews and you see a "music fan" who says "Aerosmith is the most un-original garbage I have ever heard." He's really got to shut his mouth. Listen to Dream On, then listen to Get The Lead Out, then listen to Kings And Queens, then listen to Joanie's Butterfly, then listen to Hangman Jury, then Eat The Rich, then Taste Of India, then listen to Sunshine. After listening to all that, try telling me that Aerosmith is "un-original garbage".

Ah....the double live album, a seventies rock staple. Aerosmith's own contribution to the art form is a mixed bag, and only recomended to real fans who have all the studio material from which most of the songs have been pulled. I gave it four stars because this disc is a servicable representation of Aerosmith circa 1977-1978, sometimes sloppy, sometimes sublime. Several of the bands classics are in attendance and in top form on this record,"Sweet Emotion", Walk This Way", "Lord of the Thighs" & "Dream On" being the highlights . Other gems include "Chip Away the Stone" which I've always considered one of the band's very best even though it was a non-album release, and the two chestnuts from 1973, "Ain't Got You" and "Mother Popcorn". On the debit side of things, I feel that "Back in the Saddle", probably my all-time favorite A-smith song, has never been satisfactorly produced live and as it is the lead cut on this record it is a big disappointment . It is very much a bottom-heavy studio creation, with Joe on the six sting bass, and comes off live as being light and airy. "Come Together" makes me cringe, and "Train Kept a' Rollin" is an abbrievated anti-climatic closer. I feel that had the band released a live recording during say the '75 or '76 tours, we would be talking about a legendary live album, one to rival, KISS Alive, or Thin Lizzy's Life and Dangerous. Five long years of touring, recording, and drugging produced a less than stellar life album. Still, the record does stay true to its "Bootleg" name by not being perfect. It is a snapshot in time of a legendary band, warts and all. Pandora's Box, which includes better live tracks from this era, is also a good buy. However, stay away from the crappy explioitation Classics Live albums. If you want only one A-smith live document, get "Live Bootleg".
