Editorial Reviews

Drug addiction couldn't stop them, nor could the ascension of alterna-rock and the process of aging. Not only are Aerosmith still together, but they're still recording hit singles. Since their formation in the early '70s, the band has scored a multitude of platinum albums and Top 40 hits. Moreover, Aerosmith remain a flamboyant, energized live band capable of recapturing that magical, sexual endorphin rush of youthful rock & roll abandon. Yup, on a good night, seeing Aerosmith is like experiencing your first time all over again. So it comes as no surprise that this band's double live disc is no mere trip down memory lane. Vocalist Steven Tyler still sounds raw, untamed, and on-key, shrieking as passionately as ever and reaching notes Robert Plant and Ozzy Osbourne would sell their kidneys for. And guitarist Joe Perry's bluesy, blustery rhythms and piercing solos still echo with passion and hunger. The first disc is a bit bogged down with '90s material, but the band performs stellar versions of "Love in an Elevator," "Livin' on the Edge," "Cryin'," and "Janie's Got Gun." It's the second disc that really sizzles, as the Toxic Twins dip into their drug-addled past and unleash monsters such as "Back in the Saddle," "Dream On," and "Sweet Emotion." Get your rocks off! --Jon Wiederhorn

Product Description

These guys are rock's answer to the Energizer Bunny-but they've proved again and again that they're not just running on fumes. This 23-track double album captures them as they should be heard-live, from their Get a Grip and Nine Lives tours. Includes high-octane versions of Angel; Janie's Got a Gun; Love in an Elevator; Dream On; What It Takes; Walk This Way; Cryin'; Sweet Emotion; Dude (Looks Like a Lady) , and more of the best rock 'n' roll you'll ever hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Current classics with a touch of the past October 14, 2005
By Jim K
Format:Audio CD
This is what you get when you see Aerosmith in concert. They sound great and try to mix in some oldies within the lineup of songs. My only complaint is that it is usually the "same old song and dance" not to pun, but the same six or so classic hits. If you want to listen to a great live Aerosmith pre-mtv release, get "Live Bootleg", also. "Live Bootleg" is highly recommended as it was the last live recording before the band fell into a drug coma and broke up. If you don't get to see Aerosmith in concert, "A Little South of Sanity" will basically bring you there.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Tame Sampler of Modern-day Live Aerosmith July 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Well, I've heard all of Aerosmith's previous live efforts - "Live! Bootleg", "Classics Live", & "Classics Live 2"; of course those were early Columbia releases so they all focused primarily on the same 70's tunes. So "South of Sanity" does serve the purpose of giving us 90's Aerosmith live with some of their newer material.
The problem is that Aerosmith's newer material, at least the hit stuff primarily on display here, is a bit repetitive. When they started writing music with the pop charts in mind, duplicating past successes became a habit. And they were all big, sometimes cheesy, power ballads that took a lot out of you. The first disc of "Little South of Sanity" is a cluster of these ballads, and it is quite exhausting.
The second CD bites into their more diverse, classic material and is a much easier listen. There are a couple recent ballads mixed in but it's not ten all bunched together, which is much more relaxed. Unfortunately, in hitting their old material they ignore some of their stronger, lesser-known songs for the biggest hits ("Walk This Way", "Dream On") which have already been well documented on past live releases.
The sound quality is great, if a little TOO polished (not asking for something as sloppy as "Live! Bootleg" but there is some raw attitude missing from these performances and recordings). Still, it's one of the cleanest live CDs I've ever heard, although it obviously got some studio touch-ups. It's an extraordinary balance in which every single instrument is clearly audible yet with Steven's voice shining through.
So on the plus side, it's full of vibrant sound and their biggest hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEEEEEOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! September 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ahhh-k-k-k-k-ow!!!! So there I was, wandering through the land of The Wiz (ah, whatta wonderful place). My sole purpose was to pick up Alanis Morissett's new CD. That's what I foolishly thought, but the Music Gods had other plans. After picking up Alanis's new disc and then finding out Dream Theater's new live CD was out (which I just had to pick up), I wandered over to the Aerosmith section. I'm thinking, "Why am I here? I have just about everything of theirs". Then, lo and behold, this disc with an obnoxious-looking gas station dude on the cover popped out at me. "Yeah," he seemed to say, "go ahead and pick me up because you have no choice. You've never seen me before."
Seen you before? I didn't even know you existed. So, what closet had I been living in, anyway? -- and, wait-a-minute, but what the IS this?! A live Aerosmith CD? A new one? Time to high-tail my arse outta this store before I REALLY get into trouble.
So, what did I have here? A Little South of Sanity (yeah, that description fits me to a T these past few months), a live double CD which appeared to be a hodge-podge of different shows from the Get A Grip and Nine Lives tours. I slipped it into my CD player and I have three words for you: Kicks Boo-tay, Bay-bee!!
Yeah, go ahead and groan: Another Aerosmith live CD? After all, they've already recorded three of those suckers. Sure they have. However, if you'll excuse the cliché, Ladies and Gents, but these men are like fine wine -- with age they sound and rock better than ever. Seeing them with my own two eyes (these ones) twice last summer, and once this summer, they blew me out of my chair. I was rocketed to the moon, folks. With that filed away in my memory bank, I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed with this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're still "Livin' On The Edge". April 12, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
A casual fan like myself might have been happy with one 15 track disc, but fanatics would be "Crazy" not to love this. 2 discs and 23 tracks of live Aerosmith. The sound is pretty good, or at least not bad enough to complain about. There's a wealth of 90's songs here, but at this point that is a big portion of their material. "A Little South Of Sanity" does have the hits covered pretty well, be they old or newer, and tosses in a few gems like "Mama Kin" and "Monkey On My Back" as well. Overall a good collection, and clearly proves that Aerosmith still has "What It Takes" to rock your socks off.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best live albums ever December 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Typically, I'm not a big fan of live albums, but this one turned out to be okay. For once, according to my experience, this was a live album that was clear and not full of so much crowd noise and distortion that the band couldn't be heard. The first time I played it I felt like I was back at their concert, minus all the smoke and crowd. It was great! I'm a huge Aerosmith fan and this is one of their best compilations of hits. If you like Aerosmith and you don't have this cd, BUY IT!
