Japanese Albums Chart . It was full of sweaty kids going crazy. By the time the group convened to record Rocks in early , sweaty kids were going crazy for Aerosmith all over the country. With Toys in the Attic , they'd set a high bar for themselves, and for the first time, they faced the pressure of following up a major hit record.
But as Perry recalled in his memoir, the sessions didn't reflect that tension; instead, the group was fully focused on nailing down Rocks — and still open to experimenting, as they did when he, bassist Tom Hamilton , and singer Steven Tyler did a live instrument swap while tracking the song "Sick as a Dog.
Then, with the tape still rolling, at the breakdown I gave the bass to Steven and picked up my guitar to play the solo. Looking like the Keystone Cops, we did this three or four times before we figured out who was going to run where and through which door.
It took a while, but we ended up with a great live take. That loose spirit permeated the aggressively confident nine-song track listing that made up Rocks , starting with the opening track and eventual Top 40 single "Back in the Saddle" and continuing through the pensive album-closing ballad "Home Tonight. But Aerosmith, just on its own, is such a powerhouse.
We saw the record as a jewel, the culmination of all our angst and anger and excitement and joy as go-for-broke rock and rollers. Recording Date February, - March, Track Listing. Back in the Saddle.
