The earliest known recording of Aerosmith, back in 1971, is now out on vinyl. It’s called "The Road Starts Hear".
The band members aren’t sure if it was recorded at a sound check before a club show or in a dorm room at Boston University BUT Joe Perry says he likes what he hears: "Sometimes I wish we sounded this good now. So, I think this is a really good representation of what the band sounded like and frankly, I'm really surprised it sounded as good as it does because there were no overdubs, no mixing, nothing."
