Recordings made by artists at the beginning of their career are a feast for any label that’s trying to earn some quick cash without having to look further than some dusty archives. These throwback albums are always a surprise, with the potential to offer the very best and the very worst of a band (sometimes all at once). This kind of album obviously causes people to think about the sound quality and remastering work, due to the age of the recordings. However, there’s also the matter of the band themselves and their mastery of the repertoire during the studio session. In this respect, Aerosmith graduates with honours. Recorded two years before the release of their first album (which bears the band's name), the songs on 1971: The Road Starts Hear are mostly ones found on Aerosmith. The colour given to the tracks is perhaps the most surprising aspect of this album, more so than its unfinished nature.

When Aerosmith were recording these songs, they had yet to become this huge machine capable of mixing hard rock, soul and groove within one track. The general sound of this album seems much closer to the famous English acts of the time, from Led Zeppelin (you can definitely hear some of their influence in Movin’ Out) to the Rolling Stones (their cover of Walkin’ the Dog by Rufus Thomas). Overall, the content is very spontaneous, accentuated by the fact the recording is live with a real homemade feel, yet it still has a lot of charm about it. Even if the band’s inexperience is somewhat noticeable on Dream OnMama Kin definitely has that more raw, direct sound. The album may seem short with just seven songs (excluding the unnecessary Intro which is supposed to get us in the mood), but this is far more interesting and catchy then a long list of unfinished tracks. Once you’re done listening, you’ll want to listen again to better appreciate its authentic 70s vibe: much better than wading through an overloaded compilation of supposedly unreleased tracks. © Chief Brody/Qobuz

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.
