AEROSMITH
Hampton 1987 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Hampton Civic Center, Hampton, VA; November 16, 1987. Superstar Concert Series, Westwood One Radio Networks show #87-26, for broadcast December 18-20, 1987. Sound cleaned up by hipstone. Excellent audio.

Thanks to hipstone for all his efforts and for sharing the tracks at Demonoid.

This is what hipstone commented:

This common Hampton, VA show has been on the trading circuit for many years. All versions I had ever heard were dull sounding, as if recorded from FM using normal bias tape, or lifted from the WW1 LP set using poor quality TT/cart and soundcard. The performances here are strong, but I couldn’t get past the very dull sound.

I finally did my own digital drop from an original “WW1 Superstars” 3LP set a few years ago. Then just this week I got around to doing the post work on it. I declicked it by hand, cross-faded the LP sides for seamless transitions with no commercials. No filtering or EQ, no normalizing has been done to this concert program.

Some stray vinyl noises remain, but this is the most lively version of this set I have heard. We can thank the AT440mla cartridge here for opening the sound up somewhat, and the direct capture to digital, with a lack of processing which I think makes this sound much clearer than those previous versions out there. I hope you like this one.

A good 66-minute set list chock full of the prime ‘75 - ‘77 era material, with just a few newer songs in there as well. Here you will hear a band working hard and heading back to the top. Rock on!

  2. In addition to WW1 Superstars In Concert #87-26, this same show was broadcast as #88-09 and #89-09. There were also a few “best of” shows that had tracks from this show.

  4. This is truly a great show. I’d give my left testicle to have the full show in pristine quality. Aerosmith is really at the top of their game here, and I’ve had this show since the early 90’s, but too much listening to it in the car led to tape warping (I know, I date myself there…). I was very happy to find this site with quality stuff on it — this whole show is 320CBR, and the sound is MORE than good enough for me! Thanks for uploading this and making it available. It makes anything that is available today from newer artists (and I use that term quite loosely) look simple and juvenile by comparison. This is the kind of stuff that really defines the term “Classic Rock” by a very talented set of guys.
