This two disc set was a bit of a disappointment for me as I was led to
believe it was a "real" cd, as opposed to a cdr with a color printout cover.
Unfortunately, that is what it is. If a mass produced cd exists of this
show, I have yet to see one.
The music on the other hand is outstanding. The sound quality is excellent
(A+) being taken directly from the soundboard from this special holiday
concert. I've heard officially released albums that don't sound this good.
The show is pretty much uninterrupted with the exception of some of the
crowd noise being cut from between "Dream On" and "Janie's Got A Gun."
"Train Kept A Rollin'" is also interrupted but only because the band
stopped for the New Year countdown. Mr. Tyler offers up a new age prayer to
the "one god of all religions" during the festivities with a Japanese
interpreter echoing his words. Nice to hear "Let the Music Do the Talking."
I can't remember them performing this song on the "Nine Lives" tour, but I
am sure glad they have resurrected this great song. There are two stellar
medleys on this disc as well, Sweet Emotion with Led Zeppelin's
"Heartbreaker" and "Walk this Way" with James Brown's "Mother Popcorn."
"Mother Popcorn" is not listed on the track listing. Of course what
Aerosmith New Years Eve concert would be complete without Tyler and the
crowd singing "Happy Birthday" to Tom Hamilton.
As usual with bootlegs, there is usually something wrong with the track
listing and "New Years Eve 1999" is no exception. Disc two/track one, which
is suppose to only be "Mother Popcorn/Walk This Way," also has the next two
songs tacked onto the same track. Track two and three are correctly listed
but are repeats of the songs that were incorrectly tacked onto track one.
Also "Full Circle" is incorrectly listed as "Time" on the back cover.
