1. "Love in An Elevator" [Edit] (3:41)
2. "Ain't Enough" (5:03)
3. "Young Lust" (4:21)

Collector's 3" compact disc single wrapped in a miniature gatefold album cover. Contains a shortened, radio edit of the album single, as well as "Young Lust" from the "Pump" album and a non-album track titled "Ain't Enough". Pictured at actual size above.

Aerosmith - What It Takes (Geffen) 1989

1. "What It Takes" [CHR Remix/edit] (4:02)
2. "What It Takes" (6:28)

An interesting promotional CD single that comes wrapped in a miniature album cover. The cover, which didn't scan well, is black and has the Aerosmith wings embossed on the front. Inside the cover is a full color poster that folds out to 14"x14".

Rag Doll Aerosmith - Rag Doll (Geffen) 1990

1. "Rag Doll" (4:21)
2. "Mama Kin" [live] (3:56)
3. "Dream On" [live] (4:54)

Rare CD single for "Rag Doll" featuring two excellent live cuts, both recorded from the CCM Radio One "In Concert" series. The broadcast was on January 6th, 1990. Unfortunately my copy is pretty beat up, so I am still in the market for a better quality copy.

The Other Side Aerosmith - The Other Side (Geffen) 1990

1. "The Other Side" (4:03)
2. "The Other Side" (Matt Dile "Honky Tink" Version) (5:03)
3. "The Other Side" (Club Mix) (7:00)
4. "Theme From Wayne's World" (1:27)
5. "My Girl" (3:10)

Found this cd single on SecondSpin.com for $1. Doesn't contain any earth shattering non-LP tracks, but it does have some interesting remixes and what sounds like a live version of Tyler and the gang performing the 'Wayne's World' theme.

The Other Side Aerosmith - The Other Side (Geffen) 1990

1. "The Other Side" (4:03)
2. "The Other Side" (Matt Dile "Honky Tink" Version) (5:03)

Promotional single in a gatefold mini-LP cover. The cover is printed in full color, embossed and spot gloss varnished. This is some very expensive printing. Contains two versions of "The Other Side", neither of which is all that rare, but the packaging alone makes this a nice collectible.

Living on the Edge E{ Aerosmith - Living on the Edge (EP) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Livin' On The Edge" (LP Version) (6:07)
2. "Livin' On The Edge" (Acoustic Version) (5:41)
3. "Livin' On The Edge" (Demo Version) (5:05)
4. "Don't Stop" (4:06)
5. "Can't Stop Messin'" (3:30)

To hold fans over until the release of "Get A Grip" and probably to prime distribution channels a bit, Geffen released this cool little EP cd. It features three versions of "Living on the Edge." of which the album version is the best.(The others are really not that different.) This song is full of Aerosmith pomp and attitude. The other two songs have never been released on any other Aero-disc. These two songs are excellent and had me Pumped for the new cd. These are some of the hardest rocking songs Aerosmith had done since the 70's. This little EP is essential to any Aerosmith fan.

Aerosmith - Living on the Edge (Geffen) 1993

1. "Livin' On The Edge" (LP Version) (6:07)
2. "Livin' On The Edge" (Acoustic Version) (5:41)
3. "Livin' On The Edge" (Demo Version) (5:05)

Promotional radio single with three very similar versions of "Livin' On the Edge." My particular copy is still sealed and since there is nothing on it I don't already have, I am keeping it that way.

Aerosmith - Living on the Edge (Geffen) 1993

1. "Livin' On The Edge" (LP Version) (6:07)
2. "Livin' On The Edge" (Acoustic Version) (5:41)
3. "Livin' On The Edge" (Demo Version) (5:05)

Promotional radio single with three very similar versions of "Livin' On the Edge."

Shut Up And Dance Aerosmith - Shut Up and Dance (single) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Shut Up and Dance" (4:55)
2. "Dueces Are Wild" (3:48)
3. "Crazy" (Orchestral Version) (5:30)
4. "Line Up" (Smokey Bar Mix) (4:13)

One of the better singles released from "Get A Grip" as "Shut Up and Dance" is a bubblegum rocker that just pulls you in. Also the cd single includes the tack "Dueces Are Wild" that was previously only available on "The Beavis & Butthead Experience," an album I could never bring myself to buy, negating the need for that album. "Line Up (Smoke Bar Mix)" is not that different from the original and is shamelessy co-written with Lenny Kravitz.

Shut Up And Dance Aerosmith - Shut Up and Dance (single) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Shut Up and Dance" (4:55)
2. "Dueces Are Wild" (3:48)
3. "Crazy" (Orchestral Version) (5:30)
4. "Line Up" (Smokey Bar Mix) (4:13)

European version of the same CD single as listed above with slightly different cover art and print on the CD. This disc is also wrapped in a slimeline jewel case.

Crazy Aerosmith - Crazy (single) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Crazy" (LP Version) (5:17)
2. "Crazy" (Orchestral Version) (5:30)
3. "Crazy" (Acoustic Version) (5:39)
4. "Boogie Man" (LP Version) (2:15)

I found this used for $2.91, so I picked it up for my collection. Listened to it once then never again. Three versions of "Crazy" is just too much.

Aerosmith - Crazy/Blind Man (single) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Crazy" (LP Version) (5:19)
2. "Blind Man" (4:02)
3. "Shut Up and Dance" [live] (4:46)
4. "Blind Man" (Harder Mix) (4:02)

European version of the Crazy single, released as Crazy/Blind Man with both songs listed as singles. "Blind Man" was unreleased at the time but was later released on the Big Ones CD internationally.

Crazy Aerosmith - Crazy (single) (Geffen) 1993

1. "Crazy" (LP Version) (5:18)
2. "Crazy" (Orchestral Version) (5:36)
3. "Crazy" (Acoustic Version) (5:58)
4. "Gotta Love It" (LP Version) (5:57)

Yet another version of the "Crazy" single. This one is almost identical to the others, featuring three mixes of "Crazy" and one additional song. In this case, it "Gotta Love It", a prime Aerosmith boogie number from "Get A Grip." (Thanks Saxon)

Amazing Aerosmith - Amazing (Geffen) 1993

1. "Amazing" (LP Version) (5:56)
2. "Gotta Love It" (LP Version) (5:58)
3. "Amazing" (Orchestration Version) (5:57)
4. "Amazing" (Acoustic Version) (5:56)

I paid $4.99 for this one USED! A bit much for a single that has only been out for a year, but then again, I've never seen another since. Cool maze cover with the old Aerosmith wings. Poor little sperm has to go through that big maze to get to his egg.


Aerosmith appearing on the Simpsons.

Cryin' Aerosmith - Cryin' (Geffen) 1993

1. "Cryin'" [LP Version] (5:08)
2. "Love in An Elevator" (5:22)
3. "Janie's Got A Gun" (5:29)

A German import single that contains no new material but sure does have a nifty cover. Hey any excuse to have something new by Aerosmith. Also must note that it is strange to have three of Aerosmith's biggest hits all on one single. Thanks to my good friend Olaf for hooking me up with this one.

Aerosmith - Cryin' (Geffen) 1993

1. "Cryin'" [LP Version] (5:08)
2. "Cryin'" [Fade] (4:14)

Promotional radio single with two versions of the bluesy ballad "Cryin'". My particular copy is still sealed and since there is nothing on it I don't already have, I am keeping it that way.

Fever Aerosmith - Fever (Geffen) 1993

1. "Fever" [LP Version] (4:19)

Promotional radio single. I sort of dig the cover art, which is exclusively for this single and wasn't released to the public as far as I know.

Aerosmith - Blind Man (Geffen) 1994

1. "Blind Man" (3:57)
2. "Shut Up And Dance" [live] (4:44)
3. "Get A Grip" (3:58)

One of the two singles Geffen released from the "Big Ones" CD. This particular version is the German pressing. Aside from the two studio tracks included, there is a killer live version of "Shut Up & Dance."

Eat the Rich Aerosmith - Eat the Rich (Geffen) 1993

1. "Eat the Rich" (4:10)
2. "Fever" (4:15)
3. "Head First" (5:00)
4. "Livin' On the Edge" [demo] (5:05)

An Aerosmith single that was on my want list for over a decade until I finally scored a copy through a friend in Minneapolis. (Thanks Saxon!) Freatures two albums cuts, the b-side boogie rock track "Head First" and a demo version of album track "Livin' On the Edge".

Walk On Water Aerosmith - Walk on Water (Geffen) 1994

1. "Walk on Water" [LP Version] (4:54)
2. "Dueces Are Wild" [LP Version] (3:33)
3. "Line Up" [Smokey Bar Mix] (4:13)

Single from the "Big Ones" compilation including the non-album track "Line Up" [Smokey Bar Mix]. Nothing really new on it, just another disc to add to the Aero-collection.

Big 10" Sampler Aerosmith - Big 10" Sampler (Columbia)

1. "Helter Sketer" (3:13)
2. "Sweet Emotion" (4:34)
3. "Walk This Way" (3:40)
4. "Dream On" (4:25)
5. "Big Ten Inch Record" [Live from the Texas Jam 78] (4:01)
6. "Downtown Charlie" (2:35)
7. "All Your Love" (5:27)
8. "Mama Kin" (4:25)
9. "Last Child" [remix] (3:52)
10. "Back In the Saddle" (4:40)

A promotional disc for "Pandora's Box" that I found in a used store for $8.99. Being the Aero-collector that I am, I had to have it, even though I already possess all the songs on this disc. Ahh, the life of a cd junkie!

Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion (Columbia) 1991

1. "Sweet Emotion" (4:34)
2. "Subway" (3:28)
3. "Circle Jerk" (3:37)

The one and only single released for the "Pandora's Box" set. I'm not even sure if this one was commercially released or if it was only sent out to radio stations. Contains the title track, as well as two b-side tracks from the box set.

Falling In Love single Aerosmith - Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees) (pre-release single) (Columbia) 1997

1. "Falling In Love (is Hard on the Knees)" (3:25)
2. "Fall Together" (4:38)

This was the pre-release cd single for the new album. "Falling in Love," while being a good song, begins to sound a bit formula for the band bringing back memories of "Dude" and "Love in an Elevator" complete with horns and that same pop sheen. The single received some airplay but I don't think it ever became a top ten single. The other song, however, is a blues based metallic number complete with harmonica opening. This song is an out-take from the "Nine Lives" sessions. I'm not sure why they thought it wasn't album worthy, but it's a good song and has that raw sound that we expect from Aerosmith.

Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees) (Columbia) 1997

1. "Falling In Love (is Hard on the Knees)" (3:25)
2. "Fall Together" (4:38)
3. "Sweet Emotion" (4:34)
4. "Seasons of Wither" (5:39)

The German single release for "Falling In Love (is Hard on the Knees)", complete with non-album track "Fall Together", which was also released on the American single. As well, the German release has two Aero-classics, "Sweet Emotion" and "Seasons of Wither". The U.S. single was released in a cardboard sleeve. This single comes in a clear, slimline jewel case.

Pink Aerosmith - Pink (Columbia) 1997

1. "Pink" (The Southbeach Mix) (3:54)
2. "Pink" (3:55)
3. "Taste of India" (5:53)

Not an essential single since it lacks anything really new, but still a collector's disc. This is the U.S. version of the "Pink" single. Other versions include a live version of the song as well. Picked this one up for a buck plus shipping at SecondSpin.com.

Pink Aerosmith - Pink (Sony/Japan) 1997

1. "Pink" (Album Version)
2. "Pink" (The South Beach Mix)
3. "Pink" (Live On The Howard Stern Radio Show)
4. "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)" (Moby F**ked Remix)
5. "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)" (Live 3/97)
6. "Walk This Way" (Live 3/97)

Japanese edition of the "Pink" single from 'Nine Lives'. This single features six tracks: three mixes of "Pink" (Album Version, The SouthBeach Mix & Live from the Howard Stern Radio Show), plus live versions of "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)" & "Walk This Way" recorded in March 1997. As well, there is a horrible techno remix of "FallingIn Love (Is Hard On The Knees)" titled Moby Fucked Remix. Indeed it is F'd. Other than the sample of Tyler's vocals, this song has little to do with Aerosmith and makes the skip button a necessity. The three versions of "Pink" are very different, especially the very cool acoustic version from the Howard Stern Show. Finally, the two live songs are quite good and are not the same versions that showed up on Little South of Sanity. (thanks Saxon)

Hole In My Soul Aerosmith - Hole In My Soul (Columbia) 1997

1. "Hole In My Soul" (6:10)
2. "Falling Off" (3:00)

Essential single for the unreleased track "Falling Off", which features Joe Perry on lead vocals. This single is one of the more rare releases from the "Nine Lives" CD, as "Hole In My Soul" did not do as well as "Pink" or "Falling In Love."

Made in America - Aerosmith Aerosmith - Made in America (Columbia/Sony) 1997

1. "Back in the Saddle" (4:40)
2. "Toys in the Attic" (3:05)
3. "Seasons of Wither" (3:39)
4. "Walk This Way" (3:40)
5. "Chip Away At the Stone" (4:06)
6. "One Way Steet" -live (6:42)

A short little album that was suppose to only sell in WalMart locations in the US, but has shown up in other stores as well.. Probably a marketing idea by Sony to introduce all the younger fans, who may only know the newer albums not on Sony/Columbia, to the older material. To interest hard-core fans, they included a rare live performance of "One Way Street." recorded at Mama Kin Music Hall, Boston, MA, Dec. '94. Lists for $5.96 but I have seen it as low as $3.99. This will probably be a collector's item in a few years.

Telltales Aerosmith - Telltales (Interview CD) 1997

1. interview (44:23)

44 minute interview with Aerosmith conducted b Robert Scheinfeld. The disc is wrapped in a slimline jewel case and a custom printed picture disc of Steven Tyler. European import.

I Don't Want to Miss A Thing Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss A Thing (Columbia) 1998

1. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" (4:58)
2. "Animal Crackers" (2:36)
3. "Taste of India" [rock remix] (5:52)

Bought this 'cause I didn't have the money to buy the whole "Armageddon" cd at the time. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" is a ballad written by Diane Warren for Aerosmith that became a huge hit. Some country bumkin re-did the song while the Aerosmith version was still on the charts and had a hit with it as well. "Animal Crackers" is a remix of "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" with some dialogue from the movie over the music. "Taste of India" is from "Nine Lives." The remix doesn't sound that different from the original, however. Oh well, it's a collectors item.

I Don't Want to Miss A Thing Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss A Thing (Columbia) 1998

1. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" (4:58)
2. "Crash" (4:25)
3. "Taste of India" [rock remix] (5:52)
4. "Animal Crackers" (2:36)

German version of the "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" single. Not much different than the American version, except it contains an additional album track "Crash" and comes in a plastic slim-case rather than a cardboard slip case.

Full Circle Aerosmith - Full Circle (Columbia) 1999

1. "Full Circle" [Radio Edit] (3:57)
2. "Full Circle" [Full Size] (5:00)
3. "Hole In My Soul" [Live] (5:35)
4. "What Kind of Love Are You On" (3:16)

Don't know much about this single. I didn't even realize that "Full Circle" was released as a single. Contains an unneccessary radio edit, as well as the album version. "Hole In My Soul" is a live cut from "Little South of Sanity". "What Kind of Love Are You On" is a hard rockin' song from the "Armageddon" soundtrack. Frankly I think this is a very underrated Aerosmith song. I like it FAR better than "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing".

Pink Aerosmith - Pink (Wembly Stadium special edition) 1999

1. "Pink" (3:55)
2. "What Kind of Love Are You On" (3:16)
3. "Pink" [video]

Special, slim-line collector's single that was released to promote the band's performance at Wembly Stadium on June 26, 1999. Features the single "Pink", the "Pink" video, and the second single from the Armageddon Soundtrack. "What Kind of Love Are You On" is a classic Aerosmith rocker that I like quite a bit better than the infaninitely more popular first single from the soundtrack, "Don't Want to Miss A Thing". This special edition single also comes with a 10.5" x 13.5" poster.

Aerosmith - Jaded U.S. single (Columbia) 2001

1. "Jaded" (Album Version) (3:34)
2. "Jaded" (Acoustic Mix) (3:34)
3. "Angel's Eyes" (3:21)
4. "Jaded" (Guitar Mix) (3:34)
5. "Under My Skin" (1:00)
 

I waited anxiously for this release, hoping that "Angel's Eyes" would be included on the single. Thankfully it was. Now I don't have to waist my money on that terrible "Charlie's Angel" soundtrack. This particular song is one of the heaviest Aerosmith songs in recent years. "Jaded (Acoustic Mix)" is surprisingly different from the original as all the drums and electric guitars have been removed. Ususally these different versions are so similar to the original that they are non-essential. For a good example of what I mean, see the "Jaded (Guitar Mix)." Overall, "Jaded" is good single but a bit pricey at $6.99.

Aerosmith - Jaded European single (Columbia) 2001

1. "Jaded" (3:34)
2. "Won't Let You Down" (3:37)
3. "Angel's Eyes" (3:22)
4. "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" (4:59)

This is the European version of the "Jaded" single. What is essential about it is the inclusion of the non album track "Won't Let You Down," which so far has not been released in the U.S. in any form. It appears as a bonus track on the Japanese version of "Just Push Play." The other difference between this version and the US version is that it comes in a slimcase, as opposed to the normal jewel case that most discs come in.

Fly Away From Here Aerosmith - Fly Away From Here (Columbia) 2001

1. "Fly Away From Here" [remix edit] (4:23)
2. "Fly Away From Here" [album version] (5:01)

A radio promo single for "Fly Away From Here". This particular copy was found in an English used store by a CD trader/ friend of mine. The scan above has the price sticker on Whitford's head, but I carefully removed it. The promotional sticker, however, I left in tact as I thought it gave the disc some character.

Fly Away From HEre Aerosmith - Fly Away From Here (Sony/Japan) 2001

1. "Fly Away From Here" [radio remix] (4:25)
2. "Fly Away From Here" [album version] (5:04)
3. "Fly Away From Here" [rock mix] (4:25)
4. "Face" (3:07)
5. "Fly Away From Here" [orchestral mix] (4:26)
6. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" [live] (5:16)

Japanese CD single for the ballad "Fly Away From Here". Besides having four different versions of the title track, there is the non-album track "Face", although this song did show up on the special edition version of "Just Push Play" that was only available through Best Buy in the U.S. Interstingly enough, this is the only song actually written by Aerosmith as the other two tracks included here were written by songwriters outside of the band. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" was recorded live at Cape Canaveral, FL, Jan, 29, 1998.

Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss A Thing (Columbia) 1998/2002

1. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" (4:58)
2. "Animal Crackers" (2:36)
3. "Taste of India" [rock remix] (5:52)

American re-issue of the 1998 smash single "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing". Nothing new on this single at all, only the cover art has been changed from the original.

Aerosmith - Baby, Please Don't Go (Geffen) 1993

1. "Baby, Please Don't Go" [LP Version] (4:19)

Pre-release, pomotional radio single that was unfortunately never released to the public. Awesome version of this classic blues track. Unfortunately my particular copy has some water damage to the cover thanks to the US Postal Service.
