Notes:

- From a local review: "It's groups like Aerosmith that explain the 1950s musical revival. They type of music, hard rock, has gone as far as it can. There's nothing new, nothing audibly appealing after the first musical thrust of a guitar. Aerosmith, a group that looked as young as its mostly high school-aged audience, unfortunately exhibited the minuses of hard rock at the Mosque last night. The band was loud, and in the acoustically cozy Mosque, loud is loud. Their music was repetitious, with little worth repeating. That's not to say the Aerosmith is one of the worst rock bands emerging these days. With the emphasis now on the visual rather than the auditory — especially true with 'gay rock' — a lot of new bands don't seem to know their guitars from their wardrobes. With a song like 'Same Old Song and Dance,' Aerosmith showed some traces of better music and the audience, nondiscriminatory rockers that they were, was appreciated enough to demand, and get, two encores. But even though members of Aerosmith have their standard long hair, shirts open to the waist, junior edition Mick Jagger and microphone acrobatics, they just don't add up to a good, tight rock band" (Richmond Times Dispatch, 4/1/1974).
