  • With HONKIN' ON BOBO, Aerosmith takes a break from radio-ready fare to record an album that pays tribute to the blues influences that have always been close at hand for the group. Further enhancing the sound of this project is the presence of storied pianist Johnnie Johnson (on two tracks) and Jack Douglas, the producer for many of Aerosmith's classic 1970s albums.
  • The result is the typical 'Smith sass and shimmy, with a contemporary sensibility applied to nuggets plucked from the songbooks of Willie Dixon (the sleazy strut "I'm Ready"), Sonny Boy Williamson (a rollicking "Eyesight to the Blind"), and Little Walter (the Howlin' Wolf-flavored "Temperature"). Throughout the record, Joe Perry and fellow fret-bender Brad Whitford play with a dirty, fuzz-guitar tone, perfectly complemented by Steven Tyler's equally rough-and-rowdy forays on the harmonica. As a result, these Boston natives do a stellar job with fiery renditions of Big Joe Williams's "Baby, Please Don't Go" and Mississippi Fred McDowell's "You Gotta Move," proving that they can still rock hard while playing the blues.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (4/15/04, p.150) - 4 stars out of 5 - "There is a tightness to this mania; BOBO is a celebratory attack on the [blues] canon..."

Rolling Stone (p.141) - Included in Rolling Stone's Top 50 Records Of 2004 - "[T]he Boston legends tear through classic cuts..."

Q (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[They've] gone back to their roots with a set of blues and early R&B covers that has these fiftysomethings sounding almost as fresh as on their '73 debut."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Claustrophobic yet utterly captivating, singer Jamie Stewart shares his demons with us in a series of stunning, cathartic hits."
