Aerosmith ‘Alive Out There Tonight’ is another great release from Zodiac, a label serving me well. It came with a bonus CDR called ‘Philadelphia 1978’, which is the famous WYSP-FM broadcast from March 23rd. If we call this CDR a 10 for SQ, I’d rate ‘Alive Out There Tonight’ a solid 8.5/10, being one of those where the snare and hi-hat could do with a little more ‘zip’. It does end at ‘Draw The Line’, on the 45 minute mark, so I can’t help but wonder if the rest of the show made the tape-flip. As it is not here, presumably not. However, this is me being very fussy – if you like early Aerosmith, get a hold of this.
Re the Tower Theater broadcast, the CDR SQ is on par with the latest ‘grey’ release called ‘Up In Smoke’ (FMIC2014708), which I bought from Amazon UK. Indeed, I think ‘UIS’ and the CDR are the same source. That is to say, a marked improvement on 2002’s ‘Last True Document’ (The Polar Bear Records PB-109/110), the previous leader for this concert. The Tower Theater broadcast in this SQ blows the official ‘Live Bootleg’ into a cocked hat.
