They don’t want to miss a thing. To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Aerosmith has released one of their earliest known recordings, Aerosmith – 1971: The Road Starts Hear. It was recorded with Jerry Perry’s reel-to-reel tape machine back in 1971, two years before Aerosmith’s self-titled major-label debut. Aerosmith – 1971: The Road Starts Hear includes an early version of “Dream On” plus other gems such as “Somebody,” “Movin’ Out,” and “Mama Kin.” The band’s official website also now features a new 1971 collection of merchandise. Aerosmith is set to return for a Las Vegas residency at Park MGM beginning Friday, June 17, and running through December. Favorite lyric from an Aerosmith song?
