  • Aerosmith’s self titled debut gave fans a glimse of things to come. It’s opening track “Make It” was the song they had been using to open shows as you can tell by the lyrics, “Good evening people welcome to the show”. The next track “Somebody” was written by Tyler and one of his former bandmates when he was in a group called Chain Reaction. It’s got great guitar lick from both Perry and Whitford. The song’s highlight is a vocal/guitar harmony in the middle. The next track is a rock n’ roll opus. “Dream On”( a song written by Tyler at the age of 17) has had as much if not more importance to the development of rock than Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven”. “One Way Street” the band’s next song has heavy jazz influences as well as heavy harmonica solos. Next, another classic, “Mama Kin”, the first song Steven Tyler ever wrote, contains one of the most memorable guitar riffs in history thanks to Brad Whitford and the heavy rythym beats of bassist Tom Hamilton and Drummer Joey Kramer. In fact Steven believed in the song so much he had it’s name tatooed on his arm. The next song “Write Me” is just your average aerosmith rocker. For anyone that’s familar with their music “Write Me” is in the same stable as songs like “No More, No More” and “Chiquita”. The following track, “Movin’ Out”, is the first Tyler/Perry songwriting combination. Done with mostly accoustic guitars, the song is great. Especially when the drums start to kick in. The final track is a cover song od the old Rufus Thomas, “Walkin’ The Dog”.
