Aerosmith kicks out the jams on the live disc “Rockin’ the Joint,” which was taped Jan. 11, 2002, during a rare club show at Las Vegas’ the Joint. Due this week via Columbia as a DualDisc, the album culls highlights from a set that included an uncommon six songs from Aerosmith’s classic 1975 album “Toys in the Attic.”
Although it features only 11 of the 25 songs performed that night, “Rockin’ the Joint” includes rarities like “Light Inside,” “No More No More,” “Seasons of Wither” and “Rattlesnake Shake.” The DVD side of the album will offer live performances of “No More No More,” “Draw the Line,” “Sweet Emotion” and “Dream On.”
Aerosmith has been kicking around the idea of releasing this particular concert for several years. “Those are so fun. That’s when we really feel confident to bring out the old bluesy stuff,” bassist Tom Hamilton told Billboard.com of Joint-style club shows in the spring of 2002. “It definitely influences the set list — very much so.” The band will begin a fall tour with Lenny Kravitz Nov. 3 in Washington, D.C.
