About this album

Get Your Wings is the second studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released March 1, 1974. The album is the first to feature production from Jack Douglas, who would go on to produce the band’s next four albums.

The album has been certified Triple Platinum by the RIAA.

The title of the album comes from it being the first appearance of the band’s winged logo, which would go on to be modified and used on many of their later albums.

Same Old Song and Dance

* Built around a riff Joe Perry came up with while sitting on his amp, Steven Tyler quickly came up with the verse riff. The song appears in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

Lord of the Thighs

* After the band decided they needed one more song for the album, they locked themselves into their rehearsal room, and came up with this. The narrator is a pimp who recruits a young woman he sees on the street into prostitution. Tyler also plays the piano. Kramer’s opening beat is very similar to the one he would tap out a year later in “Walk This Way” The song can be heard on Liberty Rock Radio in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned.

Woman of the World

* Written by Steven Tyler and his former band, The Strangeurs.

S.O.S. (Too Bad)

* A proto-punk song, it emphasizes the same content punk rock would soon be known for: gritty lyrics, questionable moral content, and straight to the point music.

Train Kept A-Rollin’

* Tiny Bradshaw’s 1951 R&B classic, already turned into a rock song by The Rock and Roll Trio (Johnny and Dorsey Burnette and Paul Burlison) (1956) and updated by the The Yardbirds in a 1965 raw British blues version, after whom Aerosmith modeled their version.

    The mighty Aerosmith hit their stride with their second album, Get Your Wings. Their debut had been a satisfying collection that was primal and raw, with a mammoth hit in “Dream On.” Get Your Wings turns up the volume with several of the band’s fan favorites. The salacious “Lord of the Thighs,” the extra-terrestrial “Spaced” and the one-two punch of “S.O.S. (Too Bad)” and the rockabilly classic “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” done as pure stadium hard-rock, are songs that defined the band’s early appeal. Singer Steven Tyler’s strong personality is in full evidence as he rasps and toys with the words and melodies. “Seasons of Wither” is a remarkable ballad, a trace of tenderness coming from a band best known for their wisecracking tales, as “Same Old Song and Dance” makes plain to hear. “Woman of the World” is the perfect essay on ‘70s-styled rock ‘n’ roll decadence with a woman who calls her own shots, while “Pandora’s Box” is an expression of pure old-school blues lust, with added R&B twists.

    My favorite album from the holy trinity. It's hard to choose between them thought. All 3 albums are amazing.
