Riding high on the immense success of Permanent Vacation and its three hit singles; Dude (Looks Like a Lady), Angel and Rag Doll, their November 16th appearance at the Hampton Civic Center, VA, showed the rock world that more than merely re-inventing themselves, Aerosmith had actually found themselves again.
This performance would capture the band at their peak. Steven Tyler looked and sounded energised and acutely focused, dipping into the incredibly rich repertoire that had been founded in 1973 with their self-titled album for Columbia.
With that kind of back catalog, it's no real surprise that they chose only two songs from their latest album in Rag Doll and Dude (Looks Like A Lady), their latest smash hit single. The remainder of the set presents a variety of album tracks and singles that span their career up to that point including a hark back to their debut album with Dream On. Aerosmith's overall contribution to music is of course, undeniably outstanding, but it is also the quality of their early work and their continued enthusiasm that compels audiences and listeners the world over.
Echoes very proudly presents the entire WLUP-FM broadcast of Aerosmith's appearance at the Hampton Civic Center on November 16th, 1987 on their promotional tour for Permanent Vacation.
Fully remastered with background liners and rare photos.
