Aerosmith to release newly-discovered 1971 recording of ‘The Road Starts Hear’


Aerosmith recently discovered a previously unreleased rehearsal recording from 1971 that they will be releasing as “1971: The Road Starts Hear,” on Record Store Day, November 26, 2021. The band are previewing it with a stream of the performance of “Movin’ Out”.

Recently discovered in the Aerosmith vaults, the original tape had not been touched in decades. This historic recording features seven tracks and will be available on both vinyl and as a limited-edition cassette for Record Store Day. It will also feature previously unseen archived photos, images of the original tape box, and liner notes written by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke.

The Road Starts Hear features early recordings of “Somebody,” “Movin’ Out,” “Walkin’ The Dog,” “Mama Kin,” and an early version of the classic ballad “Dream On,” all of which would later be recorded for their debut.
