Aerosmith stands out on new soundtrack
review from wall of sound regarding the Charlie's Angels soundtrack
The gist of this soundtrack is difficult to determine. Who's the target audience for this disc of '70s, '80s, and '90s tuneage? The same folks who see the film? If the people who see the film are the same folks who grew up with the TV show of the same name — and there's a strong whiff of nostalgia circling the promo campaign — then the choice of highlighting Destiny's Child, a brand-new R&B act, is a strange one. Sure, the band is a chart-topper, but including its two tracks here with more credible fare like Fatboy Slim's "Ya Mama" or Heart's "Barracuda" is suspect.
Continuing that train of thought, it's difficult to see the logic of uniting cheesy gunk like Leo Sayer's "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing," the Vapors' masturbation anthem "Turning Japanese," and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" on the same disc as Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up (Part 1)" and Deee-Lite's breezy dance gem "Groove Is in the Heart." Have their audiences suddenly become one? And then there's Caviar's funny lounge ditty "Tangerine Speedo" in the same listening experience as Tavares' "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel" and Spandau Ballet's sore-thumb ballad "True." Explanation, please. Only Apollo 440's reworking of the Charlie's Angel theme and the impressive new Aerosmith track, "Angel's Eyes," make any remote sort of sense as logical inclusions here. The whole thing smells of an overly complicated marketing plan.
Without having seen the film, it's hard to understand the context into which these songs fit. But then, since the CD is available separately, you shouldn't need to see the movie to appreciate a soundtrack. So why the hodgepodge of styles? The inscrutable mix makes for a messy listening experience, which, in light of the film's rocky buzz, might make sense after all. —

What's it called? ANGEL'S EYE
Evidently the Aeroforceone article regarding the new song on Charlie's Angels soundtrack was incorrect the song is not called Through an Angel's Eye. According to Aeroforceone Angel's Eye was officially called (Through an Angel's Eye). They then updated their news with this article:
Lucky 7 - Angel's Eye
The track listing to the Charlie's Angels soundtrack has been released and Aerosmith has landed the #7 slot on the upcoming album! "Angel's Eye" will be joining Destiny's Child, Spandau Ballet, Heart, Marvin Gaye and others for the action-packed movie soundtrack.
**Please note that it was reported in an industry trade magazine as "Through An Angel's Eye." However, according to reports published online and offline, the track is called "Angel's Eye."
Just a reminder:
The soundtrack for the new movie Charlie's Angels will be on sale in stores tomorrow (Oct. 24th)

Steven Remembers Lennon
Steven took part in celebrating the late John Lennon's 60th Birthday. In this week's Rolling Stone (November 9, 2000 issue Al Gore cover), Steven joins a caliber of artists and musicians in "John Lennon Remembered," where thirty-four artists talk about the life and work and where they were when they heard the news of John's death.
"I remember going to write alone up in New Hampshire - to get in touch with my insides. Then, when I heard the news, it was almost too much for my insides to handle. It ripped out a piece of me - I don't know how to say it any other way. I was so angry for so long - I was physically angry for years after that f*cker shot him. It felt good to have a cry because I was so f*ckin' pissed off.
As a kid, I used to go down to [Greenwich] Village all the time and fantasize I was going to bump into one of the Beatles or Stones. I never got to meet John, but I always felt like I knew him anyway. The Beatles taught us to fly, and John taught us to free-fall back to earth. All songwriters ever want to do is crawl inside other people's souls and psyches, and somehow change everything. Jesus, what part of John or the Beatles did not get inside every one of us?"

Steven and Joe Visit Harvard
Steven, Joe, Marti Frederiksen and Mark Hudson crept out of the studio to visit Harvard University as uber-producer and "fifth Beatle," Sir George Martin, delivered a 90 minute lecture on Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band and how he made it with the Beatles. Sir George spoke inside of Sanders Theatre as a part of Harvard's continued tradition of the Revels, a celebration of changing seasons. After the intuitive lecture, Steven and Joe, switched roles for a moment - going to the green room for an artist meet and greet!

Upcoming Aero-Related Releases!
As always when Scott does something there's a lot of interesting info involved and to be honest I had actually forgotten about a bunch of these things... And I don't know if all these things are actually true or if they were only rumors... But read it trough anyway... It's interesting...
Of course, Aerosmith's new studio track "Angel's Eye" will be released on Tuesday, October 24th, 2000 on the "Charlie's Angels" soundtrack album.
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry are among the featured artists on the upcoming "World Voice 2000" record on which artists recite prayers written by Pope John Paul II. World Voice 2000" was supposed to be released in September of 2000 on Columbia Records but has been pushed back for some reason. The CD will contain about 30 readings, and it will be produced in English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
Boston radio station "WCBN" will released the album "Naked Disc 4Play" on Tuesday, November 7th, 2000 and will include an "Old School Bonus Track" by Aerosmith, a live version of "Walk This Way" which was recorded on March 24th, 1978 at The Music Hall (now The Wang Center). The CD will be available in most boston area stores and proceeds will benefit several charities, including Stop Handgun Violence, the Institute for Arts Therapy, and the Boston Living Center.
Also, on Tuesday, November 14th is supposed to see the release of the long awaited Doors tribute album "Stoned Immaculate." Now, this album will include Aerosmith covering "Love Me Two Times." Now, their have been rumors that it might be a remixed, live, or even new version rather than the version that Aerosmith released on the "Air America" soundtrack album ten years ago.
Run DMC album "Crown Royal"
Now, Sonicnet.com says this album will be released on Tuesday, December 12th, 2000. The album has been finished for quite some time yet legal issues with all the guest stars on the album have delayed it MANY times. The reason I'm saying this is that their is a rumor that Steven Tyler and Joe Perry recorded a remake of the DMC classic "It's Tricky" and it will be included on this album. Now, this rumor has not been shot down from EITHER the DMC camp or the Aerosmith camp so everyone is still awaiting official word on if the song was made or not. I think it was just a plan to record it, and nothing ever happened...but I could be wrong.
There may be a sequal to the [GULP] "Not The Same Old Song And Dance" tribute album. Bob Kulick has reportly recorded guitar on "Lord Of The Thighs" for "Not The Same Old Song And Dance Volume 2."
Other albums on the way include a Rick Dufay debut solo album "C'MON" and the album "Sneak Preview" by "Rough Cutt" which will include Jimmy Crespo.
Steven Tyler is working on a album called "Mob Story: A Hip-Hopra" which has been as a "mob story done in rap." Steven will be credited under his real name Steven Tallarico. Producer Jack Douglas is producing the project. Vincent Pastore and Tony Sirico from the TV show "The Sopranos," Kamal from the comedy act The Jerky Boys and Joe Perry will also take part in this album. To be honest, I do not know exactly what this project is and what Steven and Joe's roles will actually be, but we will have to wait and see. No record label has been set yet but Jack Douglas said the following "We're putting it out ourselves, until we can find a distributor." Take that for what you will.
Joe Perry's appearance on the group "The Sound Kings" song "Invisible" which was released on MP3.com in March of 2000 will be included on The Sound Kings debut album which is supposed to be released in Fall of 2000.
Aerosmith has agreed to record to appear in a film and on a soundtrack chronicling Sun Records. Now, it has not been announced when this project will get done or released but it has been announced that PBS will broadcast a two-hour tribute in December of 2001. No word yet on what song Aerosmith will record.
Also, there are rumors that Steven Tyler will appear on a Joni Mitchell tribute album on a song with Keith Richards. And, Steven will also make an appearance on the "The Twisted Brown Trucker Band" debut album. And, that Steven will appear on a song by the UK pop band "Steps." *Shiver*
Various other things
Also...If the book "Be Cool" is made into a movie...the boys should do a song for the soundtrack. Joe Perry and Jack Douglas are working on a Score for the movie "New York Minute." There also should be a soundtrack album for the 2002 Olympic Games which should include the "Sweet Emotion '99" track. Also, maybe the video releases of "Goodnight Joseph Parker" and/or "Clubland."
Also, Spitfire Records is trying to get the rights to the Joe Perry Project album "Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker" and the "Whitford/St. Holmes" album. But, so far it is not finalized and they have yet to be re-released. The JPP album MAY include a second CD of material.
And...of course, the new Aerosmith studio album. Lucky number 13! This will probably be released on April of 2001. Over FOUR years since "Nine Lives"...Ugh.
And then Clive D. Newton gave his expert thoughts on the list so I thought I'd include that too:
The World Voice 2000 seems to have gone AWOL.
The Stoned Immaculate is believed to be the one on Air America.
RUN DMC - Crown Royal - Dec 12 (I'll believe it when I see it as last I read they are unsure it will ever see light of day). I don't believe the It's Tricky ever materialized even when it was due out last year. The album started off being a double and think was compacted to a single LP and all press releases since by Arista etc haven't mentioned Aerosmith at all.
Rough Cutt - Wasn't sure if Sneak Preview EP is out yet or not. Its being produced by one of the ex-Rough Cutt bassist as Rough Cutt have been around a while (mid 80s) in one format or another and basically a vehicle for Paul Shortino. They do play RIAHP and Lightning Strikes live!
As to Spitfire Records, their MD or whatever said that was an idea then they have since dropped it, ie to release the Whit/St Holmes and Project LP (OARAAR).
As to the remakes recently of Sweet Emotion and Back In The Saddle, hopefully these will pop onto on future singles when Sony are scratching about for things to put on them with the main title (ie in most of Europe, CD singles are 4 track). Hopefully they'll scratch any rubbish remixes they have been pushing on us.

Angel's Eye Aerosmith's new song off the soundtrack of Charlie's Angels is now being played on radio stations everywhere! If you haven't heard it on the radio it can be downloaded off of Napster. The album is not out yet. So the Mp3 you download off the internet is only radio quality, but it sounds fairly clear.

'Charlie's Angels' will pop with diverse music artists
Here this from USA today, according to their article the soundtrack won't be released until Oct. 24th, instead of Oct. 17th
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu aren't the only stars featured in 'Charlie's Angels', which opens Nov. 3. The film soundtrack, arriving Oct. 24, will showcase new material from diverse pop artists.
In addition to the single 'Independent Women, Part 1', a current hit for hip-hop-soul girl group Destiny's Child, the CD will include an Aerosmith track, 'Angel's Eye', and a song called 'Tangerine Speedo' from up-and-coming modern-rock band Caviar. It also will feature an updated version of the 'Charlie's Angel's' theme by Apollo 440, and 'Ya Mama', the first single from Fatboy Slim's albun, due Nov. 7.
'Every song on the soundtrack is in the movie', says Glen Brunman, president of Sony Music Soundtrax, which is releasing the CD. 'To have a hit soundtrack, you need a meaningful use of the music in the movie. You won't have to go looking for these songs; they'll be there to help get the meaning of the movie across'.

out for Sun (Records)
Tuesday, October 3, 2000
Musical legends including Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, the Who and Elton John will put on their blue suede shoes for a 50th anniversary film and soundtrack tribute to pioneering rock 'n' roll label Sun Records. A likely highlight: McCartney singing ``That's All Right,'' recorded by Elvis Presley at one of his earliest Sun sessions in 1954, with the former Beatle backed by guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, who played behind Elvis in that session nearly 50 years ago.
Other stars include Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, Chrissie Hynde, Rod Stewart, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Bryan Ferry and Aerosmith, among many others. (We called Aerosmith's people to find out what they're going to play, and they insisted on a three-way fax exchange to get the answer, so we passed.) These artists will perform the music of Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and other pioneers from the Sun stable of producer Sam Phillips. PBS will broadcast a two-hour tribute in December 2001.

Angel's Eye released to the radio?
Request "Angel's Eye!" Aerosmith's
new track "Angel's Eye" was released to radio today, reports sources
close to AF1! The track, written by Aerosmith, is said to be "rockin',"

yourself - request "Angel's Eye" at your local radio station and
let's get radio waves around the world "rockin'" to the tunes of
Aerosmith to record cover of an old Rock N Roll song?
The Knight Sings The King
Sir Paul McCartney is to record Elvis Presley's That's All Right, backed by the King of Rock's original band. The former Beatle is among a host of stars who will appear in a film and on a soundtrack chronicling Sun Records - the original home of rock.
Variety magazine reports that Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, Chrissie Hynde, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Bryan Ferry, the Who and Aerosmith have all agreed to take part. They will perform the music of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and other pioneers from the Sun stable.
Highlights will include That's All Right, which was recorded by Elvis Presley at one of his earliest Sun sessions in 1954, sung by Sir Paul with backing from guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana, who played behind Elvis in that session nearly 50 years ago.
A Steven Tyler
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler said if he were grilling the White House hopefuls, he'd ask Al Gore: "Would you change your policy towards Cuba if you knew 'embargo' spelled backwards was 'O, grab me?"
Which leads us to wonder: Did Bubba know
