  • After their first album, which had a rough, raucous, good-time-party, frat house feel to it, no one had reason to expect such a polished, slick, and accomplished sophomore LP. “Get Your Wings” was outstanding in so many ways, it certainly holds its own in the neighborhood of “Toys in the Attic” and “Rocks”, and them ain’t exactly no slums.The highlight for me was “Train Kept A Rollin’”, complete with the “live” section at the end. (You DID know that wasn’t really recorded in concert.) This rock classic was covered by the Yardbirds, but originally done by Johnny Burnette and the Rock ‘n Roll Trio (doncha love trivia?) in 1956, using reportedly the first recorded instance of “fuzz guitar”.”Same Old Song and Dance” was so cool, it had an awesome sax solo and horns. “Lord of the Thighs” is a masterpiece of lustful decadence. “Spaced” gives off a heavy, atmospheric vibe. “Woman of the World” made effective use of the 12-string guitar.What can be said about “S.O.S. (Too Bad)” but that it’s a flat-out, fast, to-the-point rocker? Great song!”Seasons of Wither” also gives a heavy “vibe”, which is very effective. Lastly, I suppose we can be thankful that they hadn’t yet developed their taste for ending with a power ballad. “Pandora’s Box” is a rollicking, rocking, R&B-type rocker. This ends it all on a strong note.In the pantheon of Aero, and for anyone lucky enough to be discovering Classic Aero for the first time, buy this one third, after “Rocks” and “Toys in the Attic”.
