The Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry recently talked about how his bandmates were never a fan of their 1973 self-titled debut album when it came out.
Joe Perry reflects on the ‘Aerosmith’ album
“Aerosmith” was released at a time when the fans and critics discarded it for Bruce Springsteen’s debut which was released at the same time.
However, as the band broke out into the mainstream with 1975’s “Toys in the Attic”, it didn’t take long for people to discover a newfound appreciation for tracks like “Dream On”, “Mama Kin”, and their take on Rufus Thomas’s “Walkin’ the Dog”, with some even becoming future live show staples.
In a recent interview with VWMusic, Joe Perry recalled how members of Aerosmith weren’t exactly satisfied with how their debut LP came out, partly because the reality of studio work differed drastically from their expectations:
“Well, I don’t think any of us liked it at the time. We thought that we had an idea in our heads about how we thought it was gonna sound but we were all pretty naive about everything, including working in the studio. We thought working in the studio was going to be different, where we would just come in and the studio would make it sound a certain way.
“But really, it comes down to the microphone picks up what you play, and that’s what gets recorded. There’s no magic dust that makes your record sound like what you think it should, and that was the biggest lesson we learned. And so when I listened to that record for years, it was like, ‘God, I wish my guitar sounded better. I wish we had played this differently.’ But then as the band got better, and we recorded the second record and the third record, and we started to write in the studio, things changed for us.
