Aerosmith were one of the most popular hard rock bands of the ’70s, setting the style and sound of hard rock and heavy metal for the next two decades with their raunchy, bluesy swagger. The Boston-based quintet found the middle ground between the menace of the Rolling Stones and the campy, sleazy flamboyance of the New York Dolls, developing a lean, dirty riff-oriented boogie that was loose and swinging and as hard as a diamond.Read More

Back in 1997, Led Zeppelin released BBC Sessions, the band’s first attempt to chronicle its heavily bootlegged live recordings for the British Broadcasting Corporation. That double-disc set didn’t contain all of Zep’s BBC Sessions: a full nine songs from 1969 were left behind, including three songs recorded in March — a session highlighted by the otherwise unavailable original “Sunshine Woman” — that were believed to be lost. The 2016 triple-disc set The Complete BBC Sessions adds those songs as a third disc to a remastered version of the original 1997 compilationRead More

In many ways, Def Leppard were the definitive hard rock band of the ’80s. There were many bands that rocked harder (and were more dangerous) than the Sheffield-based quintet, but few others captured the spirit of the times quite as well. Emerging in the late ’70s as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Def Leppard actually owed more to the glam rock and metal of the early ’70s, as their sound was equal parts T. Rex, Mott the Hoople, Queen, and Led Zeppelin.Read More

It’s been a long 16 years since Bon Jovi was last compiled, when Cross Road arrived for the holiday season of 1994, two years after Keep the Faith capped off a near-decade long run of dominance for the Jersey rockers. As it turned out, it was the first act of Bon Jovi’s career.Read More

This is an “authorized” greatest hits collection in the sense that the band picked the selections themselves. It’s preferable to the 1991 Greatest Hits comp for its slightly greater length (16 songs) and better choice of material; the single version of “Southern Girls” makes it on this time around, for instance.Read More

This after-the-fact compilation from one of the last hard rock bands to make any sort of impression before the alt-rock revolution made most of it meaningless does its job, limited as it is, fairly well. All the hit singles that Sebastian Bach and company cranked out during their brief run of superstardomRead More

With only four full-length albums and a couple of live records to their name, it’s hard to view this 2006 two-disc Cinderella set as being essential, especially as the thorough Rocked, Wired & Bluesed: The Greatest Hits was released early the preceding year.Read More
