50 Years, 50 Albums 1974: Aerosmith ‘Get Your Wings’

50 Years, 50 Albums 1974: Aerosmith ‘Get Your Wings’

Certainly, a tough choice this week and quite the race for the most votes as we wrap up the year 1974 with three, of what became, iconic albums of that decade. The second album from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Second Helping, along with Eric Clapton’s 461 Ocean Boulevard gave us timeless songs that will always be played on rock radio. But it was the second album from Aerosmith, Get Your Wings, that garnered the most votes. Coming off their self-titled debut album in 1973, which wasn’t well received due to a lack of promotion and little to no press, it did however return to the charts several years later. Get Your Wings gave us some great standard rock radio songs like “Same Old Song and Dance,” “Lord of the Thighs,” and “Train Kept A Rollin'”.
