Live Bootleg was released in 1978. Being Aerosmith's first live album, it included live versions of songs from all of their albums; AEROSMITH (Released in 1973, tracks that make an apperance on this album are Mama Kin and Dream On), GET YOUR WINGS (1974, included on this album are Lord Of The Thighs, SOS, and Train Kept A Rollin), TOYS IN THE ATTIC (1975, Toys In The Attic, Walk This Way, and Sweet Emotion), ROCKS (1976, Back In The Saddle, Sick As A Dog, Last Child), and DRAW THE LINE (1977, Draw The Line, Sight For Sore Eyes).This CD also includes a few songs not on these albums (The cover of The Beatles' Come Together, Chip Away The Stone, and two covers from an appearance at Pall's Mall in 1973 that is widely bootleged: Mother Popcorn and I Ain't Got You)

The original release on vinyl was on two records, and included a poster. The cover was meant to parody bootlegs of Aerosmith shows that surfaced. In fact, to make it seem more like a bootleg, they did not include "Draw The Line" on the tracklisting. This is from the 1978 show in Philadelphia at the Tower.

This is Aerosmith's at its raunchiest, rawest form. The band was heavily in drugs at the time and that is evident in the recordings. For example, in Dream On, Steven seems to struggle with the vocals in this song. But to me, this is what Aerosmith is. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Even the ugly is better than a lot of music out there today. Aerosmith is up in your face for over an hour. Highlights of the album include a fast-paced Toys In The Attic, a 7+ minute Lord Of The Thighs jam, and the the two "club" numbers Mother Popcorn and I Ain't Got You. But really, the whole album is a highlight. Everything is so loose and rocking, it is the perfect definition of what a live album should be.

This rough, tough and rowdy live album brings together 14 recordings from Aerosmith's 1977-78 tour, plus a couple of rarities from 1973 in the form of James Brown's "Mother Popcorn" and the Yardbirds' "I Ain't Got You".

The sound is very much live, with the loud, crunchy guitars of Joe Perry and Brad Whitford at the forefront, but it is also relatively clear, and not as cluttered as "A Little South Of Sanity". It is obvious that not a lot of overdubbing was involved to fix up the tracks, which results in a refreshingly authentic representation of Aerosmith at their best.

Almost every early Aerosmith classic is included: "Back In The Saddle" opens the CD, followed by "Sweet Emotion" and a seven-minute "Lord Of The Thighs".
The band's powerful version of John Lennon's "Come Together" is here as well, as is the superb "Walk This Way", the hard-rocking "Mama Kin", and one of Aerosmith's best and most overlooked songs, Richie Supa's catchy "Chip Away At The Stone".
And "Draw The Line" is here as well, although it is unlisted (probably to tie in with the casual "bootleg" design of the album, which includes fake coffee stains on the back).

There are a couple of lesser songs as well, but most of what is here is simply excellent. "Live Bootleg" is a must for fans of Aerosmith's seventies output.
4 1/2 stars.

Bootleg is a collection of live songs from their 77-78 tour (with the exception of Mother Popcorn from a 73 radio broadcast). For my money, Aerosmith is one of the greatest live bands ever, and this is a collection of some of their greatest songs, from the era before they were ever on MTV or even radio.
Some of the highlights:
Back in the saddle- Just a cool song. Sounds great live..what Tyler calls a "lusty cowboy song"
Sweet Emotion and Dream On-Two classics that are made to be played live
Last Child- Another great song...a little faster than studio versions, but full of energy
Walk this Way- More funky than on the album...real cool
Chip Away- Best track on the album...awesome crowd reaction
Train Kept a rollin'- I'll quote the liner notes on this one: "Loud and fast-speaks for itself"

This is a bootleg containing recordings of the band from Draw The Line world tour 77-78, and extra songs, like "I Ain't Got You" and "Mother Popcorn" are from Boston Pall Mall, unofficial bootleg, 1973.

So, this recording is a rough 'n tough power n' roll and shows how great was Aerosmith at the stage! The were going so wild! It's just perfect recording. It contains some excellent versions of "Back In The Saddle"(which sounds much more powerful than on the studio version, and it should sound like this forever!) "Sweet Emotion" (More hardrocking, You can feel the heavy riffing here) "Toys In The Attic"(much more wild, yeah!), "Sick As A Dog", and "Draw The Line". It all in itself just kicks ass, but there are some lame versions here: "Lord Of The Thighs" sounds great here but improvisation is getting too long, thus boring. This Bootleg, unfortunately, contains the worst cover song Aerosmith ever did, "Come Together" and that's the only one song I always skip when I listen to it. Another lowlight is crapped up "Dream On" which sounds like the boys were tired and bored while playing it. I hate "Train Kept A Rollin'" in this version; because it is no longer classic power song that it is on Get Your Wings, but here it is just a concert mess; solos are crapped up and the song is confused, too; it doesn't keep its right order. However, even with these bad tracks, You can't help but love this cd! It is a perfect assume of essence of young Aerosmith. I would like to hear more songs here although, like "Rats In The Cellar" or "Same Old Song & Dance" but it's still great anyway. It is the best Aerosmith live cd (I always loved A Little South Of Sanity, but now, when I got into their 70s era, I hate later stuff) and I recommend it to any rock fan!

Love it
