    ‘Headless In Vienna’ (No Label)seems to be a straight copy/ reissue (with different artwork) of, er, ‘Headless In Vienna’ (Langley-262), which came out in 2003. It is the full show, from a SB, and as such represents the most complete document in that SQ from the tour. There is, on both releases, mild distortion in places, but nothing much.

    Aerosmith ‘Counterpart Studios 1973′ is a MASSIVE upgrade: I smiled so much when I played it my face hurt. I first heard this broadcast (on W-KRQ) on the vinyl boot ‘Rattlesnake Shake’, which, whilst being rather quiet, had better SQ than any subsequent release I could find. This new CD has an enormous improvement in SQ on that LP, and on Lost and Found’s CDR ‘Pandora’s Studios’, for example. Not only that, but it seems to be the full broadcast, including the radio chatter from DJ Jaybird Stephens/ Stevens (he namechecks himself). Not only THAT, but it seems to be the full recording, as it also includes the open-mic when the radio-station would be playing jingles or ads. With that, we get to hear Steven Tyler querying the recording levels, as well as other background chatter. There are two small patches of distortion/ tape drop-out – one in ‘Write Me’, the other in ‘Train Kept A-Rollin’ – but that’s all. Where they got this marvellous source tape from I don’t know, but all Aerosmith fans need to find this CD.
