You can call it "Gems of the Geffen days" ("Gems" was a collection of songs from the early Columbia days (1972-1982) that weren't big hits but was farourite songs by the band members, and is much better from the Greatest Hits record)
This like about seven other compalation albums covers Aerosmith from Done With Mirrors in 1985 up until about 1994 or so, so about a decade roughly. Why they dint include the Nine Lives album as well I dont understand, but oh well this just adds to one of the many reasons why this is a bad compalations album, if you can call it that.
Not only does this not have anyhting from Nine Lives but its mostly just underrated songs that were never released as a single. Which for me, a hardcore Aerosmith fan that cool. But people out there that are not a die hard Aerosmith fan like myself are not going to want a Classic Masters Collection (which this isnt!) that features instrumentals like 'Movie', which most of the world has never even heard of, or 'The Hop' which even fewer people have heard. Look every song on here is good, its by Aerosmith so of course it is but You cant call something a Classics collection and release songs that are not classics. Maybe seven or eight, or if you really wanna stretch it nine songs are classics. Most of Aerosmiths classic songs were released in the 1970's and they are most deffinatley not included here.
Like most of Aeromsiths compalations this was released with out the band even knowing it until a kid went up to Joe Perry and asked him to sign the cover. Like I said this has nothing but good songs, but there are about seven otehr cds with all these songs and many more for a better price and a more appropreit title. So if you want it buy it buy this is really only for completest and diehards, and if you not one of those then get Oh Yeah! Ultamate Aerosmith Hits instead, its way better!
A collection of 18 tracks lifted from the "Done With Mirrors" up to "Get A Grip" albums. Because this is the first review, I'm sending the full track listing separately.
Unlike "Big Ones", the record company decided this time to include tracks from DWM (6 tracks!). Furthermore, the rest of the track selection is quite different from "Big Ones", and in my opinion, somewhat weaker. I'm surprised but mostly disappointed that songs like "Love In An Elevator", "Dude", and "Livin' On The Edge" are absent from this latest collection.
Overall, "Big Ones" has more chances of getting in my CD player than this inferior compilation...

This feels like it was made to give us a taste of the more obscure aerosmith music from 85-93, but including songs like jaine's got a gun, rag doll, amazing, and what it takes... Read morePublished on May 25, 2013 by Cinema's Lot
Every album is a must have for any Aerosmith fan. For those who "Boo" this album for not having Dude(lookes like a lady) is lame. There is more to Aersomith than that one song. Read morePublished on August 24, 2005 by Militaryprivate
