returned to their original label in the '90s, there were still contractual obligations to Geffen. A Little South of Sanity
completes the Geffen cycle, and unlike most groups who toss together something in order to move on, Aerosmith took great care in compiling this double-length live collection that covers more than 25 years. Recorded during tours for Get a Grip
(1993-1994) and Nine Lives
(1997-1998), it becomes readily apparent here that Aerosmith still tore it up live regardless of how many power ballads they had unleashed on radio since the late '80s. If 1978's Live Bootleg
gave listeners Aerosmith at their ripsnorting peak, then Sanity
provides a reflection of a classic band that's aged gracefully without losing any of its spark.
