Aerosmith – “Big Ten Inch Record” Live

Aerosmith – “Big Ten Inch Record” Live | Society Of Rock Videos

Record Of Her Favorite Blues!

“Big Ten Inch Record” was written by Fred Weismante which was originally recorded by R&B singer and saxophonist Benjamin Clarence “Bull Moose” Jackson. It was a risky material for him and his band and they actually sold very few copies. Nevertheless, it became a staple in their live repertoire.

20 years later, The Flashcats, a blues band that performed in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, were regularly featuring a cover of “Big Ten Inch Record” in their setlist, undoubtedly inspired by rock group Aerosmith covering the song on their 1975 album Toys In The Attic.

Covering this song lessened the pressure on Steven Tyler at the time when he was struggling to pen the tracks for Toys In The Attic. Zunk Buker introduced this to the band and even sent them a copy after hearing it on a radio show.

Aerosmith used a horn section on this song, which included a bass saxophone played by Stan Bronstein. They also brought in Scott Cushnie to play the piano. Cushnie got the gig because he used to play in a band with Aerosmith’s producer Jack Douglas.

Steven Tyler’s one great showman. That audience is so lucky!
