Aerosmith - Live Bootleg: Wikipedia Album Entry

Live! Bootleg is a live album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 1978.

While most of the performances were drawn from concerts in 1977 and 1978, the covers "I Ain't Got You" and "Mother Popcorn" were taken from a radio broadcast of a Boston performance on March 20, 1973.

The design of the album is intended to ape the poor production values offered by contemporary bootleg records, even going so far as to give an incorrect track listing: the song "Draw the Line" is included on the record but does not appear listed. The back of the album cover includes two coffee stains over the picture of Joe Perry playing before a live audience.

The record also features one of Aerosmith's first live versions of The Beatles "Come Together" (which they performed in the 1978 movie Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) and the first record appearance of Richie Supa's "Chip Away the Stone" (the studio version of this song would later be released on 1988's Gems compilation). This album was briefly featured on the episode Prank Day of That '70s Show.
