From humble beginnings playing their first gig at a high school in 1970, two years later Aerosmith entered Boston’s Intermedia Studios with producer Adrian Barber to record their debut.
Joey Kramer says:
“That was the first time I had ever been in a recording studio to work. We had been playing those songs for probably the first two years that the band was together, so we went into the studio and did that album in about three weeks.”
“We had the material down because we had been playing it live and rehearsing it a lot, so we didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the studio. Plus we didn’t really know much about what we were doing anyway, so it didn’t matter much. That was the band playing live.”
“That’s how most of the records were done – we really prided ourselves on being a band, functioning and playing as a band. The only record that we really didn’t do that way was Just Push Play. Movin’ Out was the first song we all wrote together, the first song that everybody came up with their own parts for.”
