Editorial Reviews

These Boston boys are approaching the Stones in terms of rock 'n' roll longevity, and this limited-edition, custom-designed and handmade set is the ultimate career trophy. Inside are all 12 original albums by the band- Aerosmith; Get Your Wings; Toys in the Attic; Rocks; Draw the Line; Live Bootleg!; Night in the Ruts; Greatest Hits; Rock in a Hard Place; Classics Live; Classics Live II , and Gems -digitally mastered with Super Bit Mapping from the first-generation source tapes, complete with the original LP artwork and liner notes. Then come the bells and whistles-collectors' edition foldouts that include international memorabilia, vintage press clippings and authentic, behind-the-scenes studio notes detailing the rise, fall and rise of a rock 'n' roll band. And, here's the kicker-a previously unreleased five-track disc of long-sought-after Aero-rarities.

This set contains all 12 of Aerosmith's early Columbia releases--7 studio albums, 3 live ones, an early Greatest Hits, and the album 'Gems', which I guess is another anthology. For many fans of their newer music, few of these tracks will be recognizable, maybe only a few from the Greatest hits. Still, this is a great way to discover Aerosmith at their height.
Besides the 12 original albums, this set includes a 5-track bonus disc, most notable for its rockin' rendition of 'Sweet Emotion' and the absolutely beautiful version of 'Dream On' (with a symphony!). These are two excellent remakes of a couple of Aerosmith's best songs.
The great thing about this set is that all the old albums appear exactly as they originally did (though they've been remastered). You don't have to worry about song selection because it's all here. So, for anyone wanting to start a good Aerosmith collection, this is the absolute best place to start.
This box set is highly recommended. Don't let the high price tag fool you--it's well worth every penny.

A lot of other reviewers here seem clueless as to why this box set was released the way it was. Some history might clear this up.

Aerosmith first signed with Columbia records in 1972. Then in the mid 1980s they cleaned up their drug habits and switched labels to Geffen records. After having quite a successful come-back, they then went back to Columbia records in 1994.

What does this have to do with the box set? Well you have to realize that in the music industry, the release of compilations, box sets, and even just re-releases of older albums is all largely determined by a band's record label. A record label obviously isn't going to make money off of an album put out by another label. This means that when a band releases a lot of albums under one record label but then leaves them for a new label, each label will handle things with their own best interest in mind. For example, the old stuff might get acquired and re-released on (and by) the new label, or the band will try to finish off their old contract by releasing a compilation album, etc.

It's no coincidence then that when Aerosmith joined back with Columbia in 1994, the label decided to re-release all 12 albums that they had done for Aerosmith. In addition to selling them separately, they also decided to put all 12 discs in this box set, "Box of Fire". So this box set simply contains all 12 individual Aerosmith albums that had been released up until then with Columbia records, plus a bonus EP of rarities.

This means you will NOT find anything from the albums Aerosmith did with Geffen. That means nothing from "Done With Mirrors", "Permanent Vacation", "Pump", or "Get a Grip".

By far the most comprehensive Aerosmith collection available. Box of Fire includes all of the band's Columbia albums with the exception of, of course, Nine Lives, and even adds a 5 cd bonus disc. The discs come remastered and with extensive linear notes. The only drawback to this excellent box set is the price. At around $100, it is too much for most listeners, but for those who are loaded you should definately get this collection, especially if you don't already own these albums. If you do though, you will almost certainly want to pass as there is nothing new here outside the five songs (of which you have probably already heard, and maybe even own, three) and the box itself.

This is the great groin grinding sound of Aerosmith all put in one great boxed set! It is their best work from the seventies. You get all their sounds for a reasonably low price. PLUS you get an extra bonus disc with some great songs that you can't get anywhere else. This definetly gets five stars and two thumbs up!!

A superb 13 - CD box set and all,but WHO has time to listen to this? You obviously need to check out,say several discs at a time to make it fun. 'Box Of Fire' includes many of their classic albums from '73's self-titled Aerosmith to - well, I cannot say (for sure) when the cut-off point is. Plus it looks like you get some compilations and one five-track EP that has some real tough-to-find songs of theirs including the instrumental "Subway" and "Circle Jerk". A great find,but 'Box Of Fire' is obviously aimed toward the HUGE Aerosmith fan, with a hunk of disposable income. A must-have, but PRICEY.

I bought this box set a year ago for $50. ive been an Aerosmith fan for a long time, especially of their 70s stuff, but i never had the luxury of owning a lot of their early days albums because i was low on money or i'd never be able to find any of them at a wal-mart except for a select couple. anyways, this box set comes with 12 CDs (Aerosmith, Get Your Wings, Toys In The Attic, Rocks, Draw The Line, Live Bootleg, Night In The Ruts, Greatest Hits, Rock In A Hard Place, Classics Live, Classics Live II, and Gems) and it comes with a bonus cd and the box itself just looks awesome. i listen to the CDs all the time whether im just relaxing at home, playing guitar to the songs, or i'm working out. it's the perfect box set for any fan of early Aerosmith and I love this thing to death. if you really want to complete this set i'd recommend buying Pandora's Box along with this, it's got a lot of rare songs from Aerosmith's early days that weren't put on any of the albums. Enjoy.

how much does it weight
As far as mail, i'd say a box this size with 12 discs would be approximately 2 pounds.
