The first time I saw Aerosmith live was as part of a music event which had multiple acts on the bill. This was late ’97 at Madison Square Garden and probably the funniest thing about this is that all the other acts on the program that night were current pop/rock/ and otherwise bubblegum personality performers. Aerosmith was already old enough to be these other groups grandfathers!!
As it were, my buddies and I got tickets to this gig for the sole purpose of seeing Aerosmith who was dubbed as the headliner, more or less.. (but in retrospect I got a kick out of many of the other acts of the day, and had I known then that music would really take an insane turn for the worse in the years to come I’d have probably appreciated it a lot more, therefore I look back on that era of music with a fondness).
I’ll never forget that the band opened with “Love In An Elevator”, a classic 1989 hit from their Pump album. We were already in there for what seemed like hours, so when these guys came on and burst into that track with the crowd doing all the “wo-oh’s” you could feel the energy in the air. I’ve never been able to listen to this track since without thinking of that night.
Now this version here is actually a pretty rare piece… I can’t remember exactly where I got it, but my notes claim it was from a original 12″ single, possibly a UK press of limited release. The band released very few “remixes” in the late 80′s, so this is one of those ‘hard to finds’.
