Aerosmith: 35th Anniversary edition of Rocks due next month

Aerosmith will mark the 35th anniversary of their 1976 classic, “Rocks,” next month with a special reissue.

Sony Japan have announced a November 2nd release date for the 35 Anniversary Commemorative Edition of “Rocks.” The two-CD set will feature the entire album, plus assorted rarities and live tracks from the era. More details are expected soon.

The release comes weeks before Aerosmith play an 8-show run in Japan, starting November 22 in Kanazawa.

The band’s fourth album, "Rocks" was a commercial success for the Boston band, with three singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, two of which reached the Top 40 ("Back in the Saddle" and "Last Child"). The record was also one of the first albums to ship platinum when it was released; it has since gone quadruple platinum.

A new Aerosmith album – their first of original material in 10 years – is expected next spring.
