Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Aerosmith were written off by the pop pundits in the early '80s as a drug-ravaged bunch of Rolling Stones clones who would go down in music history as little more than a hard-rock footnote. The band, however, rose from the ashes to become an even mightier hit machine in the '90s, even if they ended up selling their soul to pop über-songstress Diane Warren in the bargain. This three-CD compilation is a marathon tour of their first glorious, casualty-ridden decade and a body of work that proudly wears its influences on its sleeve: Chicago and Delta blues, early R&B, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, and, of course, the Stones. Virtually all the early hits and concert crowd pleasers are here, along with nearly two dozen rare, unreleased, and live cuts, thoroughly documented with refreshing doses of self-deprecation as it bravely traces the band's arc from Boston bar-band supreme to stadium superstars to seeming dissipation. If there's a gaping hole in the "A" section of your hard-rock library, this is a fine introduction to the Aerosmith that influenced a generation of musicians, stretching from Van Halen to R.E.M. to Guns N' Roses. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith Rocks June 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This 3 cd set is one of my most often played rock box sets which I own. It is comprised mostly of material from their classic Columbia years 1972-82. It includes unissued and live material, alternate takes and material from various side and solo projects. Hailing from Boston, Aerosmith was the best hard rock band from the United States during the seventies. They took their influences from the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, the blues, and funk and created a great sassy sound. Steven Tyler's high energy vocals compliment the bluesy riffing of guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford perfectly. Their influence can be heard in such bands as the "Black Crowes", and "Guns & Roses". The set includes such hits as "Dream On", "Sweet Emotion", "Walk This Way", "Back In The Saddle", and others. Rarities include great cover versions of Fleetwood Mac's "Rattlesnake Shake", Otis Rush's "All Your Love", and The Beatles "Helter Skelter". Live cuts from the classic 1976-78 era are also included. Some may be outtakes from the "Live Bootleg" recordings, but the performances sound more inspired than their work on that album. The set also includes a lot of my personal favorites like "Movin' Out", "Mama Kin", "Write Me A Letter", "Rats In The Cellar", "Milkcow Blues", "Cheese Cake", and "Chip Away The Stone". However there are still some cuts which should have been included such as "S.O.S. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars My First Aerosmith Purchase March 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Man I gotta tell you that this was the CD that really got me into Aerosmith and they sure know how to play some great rock 'n' roll and what amazes me the most is that they're still alive doing the same thing after the hell they put themselves through with hard living, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and bitter relationships with the bandmates and their wives.
Disc 1.
The first CD features some rare tracks and demos and tracks from their debut album and Get Your Wings and you also get to hear one of Steven Tyler's early bands when he was in the Chain Reaction with the single 'When I Needed You' which is a very good song even though it sounded a little too much like the Beatles, and I wonder why they didn't include On the Road Again on their debut album cause it was a great song, songs from the first album features Dream On, Make It, Mama Kin, One Way Street and the alternate version of Movin' Out, which was the first song that Steven Tyler and Joe Perry wrote together, now the songs from the Get Your Wings album are Same Old Song and Dance, Train Kept a Rollin', Seasons of Wither and Pandora's Box (Which marked drummer Joey Kramer's composition debut).
Also featured is the 10 minute live version of Rattlesnake Shake and a cover of Rufus Thomas Walkin' The Dog and the live version of Lord of the Thighs from the Texas Jam '78.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent retrospective September 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Pandora's Box" collects more than fifty singles, album tracks, demos, outtakes, live cuts and rarities, including all the best and best-known songs from Aerosmith's 1970 debut until 1982's "Rock And A Hard Place".
Also included is solo material from Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, as well as an early track from Steven Tyler when he fronted a band called Chain Reaction in the '60s ("When I Needed You"), and while this is not a career-spanning box set, it is a really wonderful overview of Aerosmith's best period.

The hits should attract the casual admirer: "Dream On" is here, along with "Walk This Way", "Mama Kin", "Draw The Line", "Sweet Emotion" and many more. And the more obscure selections will surely please the longtime fan: "Rattlesnake Shake", "On The Road Again", the great, raunchy blues "Big Ten-Inch Record", a demo of "Movin' Out", live versions of "Adam's Apple", "Write Me A Letter" and "I Wanna Know Why" are all great, as is the previously unreleased "Let It Slide", an instrumental which was to become the basis for the song "Cheese Cake", and which shows Joe Perry's too-rarely heard prowess on the slide guitar.

And my favorite Aerosmith rocker is here too, penned by sideman Richie Supa (keyboards, occational guitar): "Chip Away At The Stone", complete with one of Joe Perry's best guitar riffs.
The band's cover of John Lennon's "Come Together" is included as well, of course, as is a great, slow rendition of the Otis Rush-classic "All Your Love (I Need Lovin')", and several underrated album tracks like "Seasons Of Wither", "No Surprize", "Three Mile Smile" and "Cheese Cake".

One of the best box sets of the 90s, "Pandora's Box" really delivers the goods for both hardcore fans and more casual listeners who don't want all the band's original albums. Get this fine collection, and the recent two-disc "Young Lust" anthology which draws from 'Smith's 80s and 90s Geffen albums, and you're all set!
4 1/2 stars. An excellent package.
