Aerosmith: A Little South of Sanity

Album Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly (11/27/98, pp.80-81) - "...Sounding tight, well rehearsed, and utterly professional, Tyler, Joe Perry, and the gang bound energetically from one hit to another....For all their creative ups and downs, these geezers can still summon up more nerve and verve than a box of matchbox 20s." - Rating: B

Q (12/98, p.114) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Twenty years on the re-formed and reformed rockers have produced a second heavyweight double-live set, recorded between 1993 and 1998, yet reprising many of the best songs from Live Bootleg..."

When Aerosmith returned to its original label in the '90s, there were still contractual obligations to Geffen, where they pulled a Lazarus and resurrected their moribund career in the mid-'80s. A LITTLE SOUTH OF SANITY completes the Geffen cycle and unlike most groups who toss together something in order to move on, Aerosmith took great care in compiling this 2-CD live collection that covers more than 25 years. Recorded during tours for GET A GRIP (1993-94) and NINE LIVES (1997-98), this release also marked a reunion with Jack Douglas, the band's producer during their '70s salad days, who helped the boys from Beantown compile the performances on this collection.

It becomes readily apparent here that Aerosmith still tore it up live regardless of how many power ballads they unleashed on radio since the late '80s. Of course, the Zippo-waving songs are here in abundance ("Crazy," "Angel") alongside ribald double-entendres ("Falling In Love [Is Hard On The Knees]") and vintage material ("Mama Kin"). If 1978's LIVE BOOTLEG gave us Aerosmith at their ripsnorting peak, then SANITY provides a reflection of a classic band that's aged gracefully without losing any of its spark.
