I usually don't complain about minor scuffs on a new album anymore, but damn, it looks like someone ran both sides down a strip of astroturf before slapping the shrinkwrap on. For the price not worth returning but pretty surprising for a new album. Guess that par for the course these days..

No CD? When is the 8-track tape version coming out? I don’t understand when bands deliberately limit sales by not releasing CDs.

Not bad. Definitely worth $20-30 for even a moderate Aerosmith fan, especially if you like the early stuff. The quality of the packaging and LP are really good - nothing spectacular, but still solid. My copy is flat and mostly silent (a few stray pops, but nothing overpowering). The sound quality is reminiscent of my own garage band recordings from back in the day; not mixed well with boomy drums, thin guitars, and vocals way out front. But that’s kind of the point with this record. It’s cool to hear one of hard rock’s greatest bands when they were just starting out. I recommend it as long as you know the expectations going in.

My record arrived factory sealed however the record itself had a chunk missing from the edge. I can still play it BUT, what the heck Aerosmith??? Many songs are very "noisy"

Aerosmith is the biggest rock and roll band ever in the USA and they allowed a bad product to be released. PERIOD.

Can one imagine if Jimmy Page released a record of the same significance and allowed the quality control to fail as this record did??

Love the whole idea of this but man, my copy is pretty warped. I bought it from a cool seller on here and just can't see going through all the rigamarole of a return. The vinyl is pretty lightweight, def not 180G which, I get it, this is a demo, bootleg kinda vibe. Packaging inside record is cool but scuffed up the vinyl pretty good.

This is the type of release that to me is what Record Store Day (or Black Friday Record Store Day) is for- previously unheard to most, somewhat historical documentation of the development of an important band to music. Glad I picked this up.

Essential? Probably not. But it’s definitely the most fun I’ve had listening to Aerosmith in a very long time. There’s a lot of care put into this - great sound, clever artwork and a gatefold with liner notes and photos.

Sound quality isn’t that bad for what it is. Comes with custom inner and insert but the inner sleeve is really rough paper that tends to leave marks.
