VARIOUS One Way Street - A Tribute To Aerosmith Mascot Records M70692 (2003)

Tribute albums always spark a healthy debate amongst fans and many are poor, usually featuring some guitarist and vocalist who were both in an 80's glam band for a day! This tribute however has a top draw line-up including Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Toto's Bobby Kimball and even 'Ripper' Owens from Judas Priest! Plus the backing musicians include Al Pitrelli (Megadeth/Asia/Savatage), Doug Aldrich (Dio/Whitesnake), Jimmy Bain (Rainbow/Dio) and Stevie Salas.

Highlights? Well you can't go wrong when the original songs are so good. Booby Kimball's vocals on 'What It Takes' are superb (fellow Toto member Mike Porcaro also plays on this track) and ex-MSG vocalist Robin McAuley shines on 'Angel', a very underrated vocal talent and ideal for slower numbers. Talisman's Jeff Scott Soto romps through 'Cryin' but a couple of tracks don't work for me including King's X Doug Pinnick on 'One Way Street' and the Tubes Fee Waybill on 'Rats In The Cellar'. But overall a very enjoyable album and surprise has to be 'Ripper' Owens tackling 'Round And Round' so well, not one of my favourate vocalists but here he performs well.

For Aerosmith fans well worth a listen and it has wider appeal for fans of the artists who appear on here.
