About this album

Pump is the tenth studio album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 1989. The album was remastered and reissued in 2001.

Pump was widely acclaimed by both fans and critics upon its release. The album incorporates the use of keyboards and a horn section on many of the singles (“Love in an Elevator”, “The Other Side”), and contains straightforward rockers (“F.I.N.E.*”, “Young Lust”), the ballad “What It Takes”, songs about issues such as incest and murder (“Janie’s Got a Gun”) and drug and alcohol abuse (“Monkey on My Back”), as well as a variety of instrumental interludes such as “Hoodoo” and “Dulcimer Stomp.”

The album has certified sales of seven million copies in the U.S. to date. It produced a variety of successes and “firsts” for the band including their first Grammy award (“Janie’s Got a Gun”). “Love in an Elevator” became the first Aerosmith song to hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Additionally, it is the only Aerosmith album to date to have three Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and three #1 singles on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album was the fourth bestselling album of the year 1990.

Pump was the second of three sequentially recorded Aerosmith albums to feature producer Bruce Fairbairn and engineers Mike Frazer and Ken Lomas at The Little Mountain Sound Studios.

Aerosmith found themselves in law school textbooks after a small rock band named Pump sued Aerosmith’s management company for service mark infringement. Aerosmith won the case. Aerosmith also found themselves in legal trouble when the songwriting team Holland-Dozier-Holland threatened to sue the band over the main melody in Aerosmith’s song “The Other Side” which sounded similar to the melody in the song “Standing in the Shadows of Love”.

    After reinventing themselves with 1987’s multiplatinum Permanent Vacation, Aerosmith solidified their comeback with 1989’s Pump. Perhaps spurred on by collaboration with songwriting pro Desmond Child — who brought the band its biggest-ever hit in “Dude (Looks Like A Lady)” — Joe Perry and Steven Tyler restore their songwriting partnership with a newfound confidence and focus. “F.I.N.E.” and “Love in an Elevator” blend the band’s mid-‘70s strut with the big hooks of ‘80s arena rock, while “Janie’s Got a Gun” is a Tom Hamilton-Steve Tyler collaboration that became one of the band’s most unusual and enduring songs. On the lighter side, “What It Takes” is a sequel to “Angel” from Permanent Vacation, and begins a tradition of sentimental power ballads that would carry the band’s career well into the ‘90s. Although Permanent Vacation heralded Aerosmith’s reinvention, it was Pump that solidified their relevance. This is the album that proved an old band could learn new tricks, and keep olds.

    @KingsAndQueen Yea, I figured it was something like that. I was curious as to why Dulcimer Stomp was cut from Big Ones, but there's the answer. Also, Water Song is included on Big Ones, they only cut that part of the name.

    @MichalHart The compilations cut the intro known as Water Song which in the original album is tagged like this, with a slash and added to the name.

    The perfect hard rock album - Pump sounds as good today as it did 20 years ago. The down side is that Aerosmith can't even come close to topping it...
