Aerosmith to Release Special 35th Anniversary Edition of ‘Rocks’
Aerosmith will release a special, 35th anniversary edition of their fourth album 'Rocks,' which was originally released in May of 1976. The deluxe edition will land on Nov. 23, to coincide with the band's fall tour in Japan. Judging from all the elements that comprise the set, it's quite a covetable and collectible piece.
So what are the contents of this special deluxe version of the album? It will include a 28-page replica of the program from the band's first tour of Japan; a replica of the first tour poster from Japan (Nippon Budokan version); a replica of a ticket from the first show at the Gunma Sports Center; replica artwork from the Japanese 7" singles for 'Home Tonight,' 'Back in the Saddle' and 'Last Child'; and four postcards boasting photos of from this era.
Awesome, right? Right.
You know what's not awesome about this release? The fact that's it's only being released in Japan, so if you want it, it's likely that you'll have to shell out some cash on the import. We think it's slightly unfair that the Japanese Aerosmith fans are the only ones who get to enjoy this piece. Why do they get to have all the fun?
