Listen to Aerosmith’s previously unreleased “1971 version” of ‘Movin’ Out’

It'll feature on '1971: The Road Starts Hear', the band's limited edition RSD collection

Aerosmith have shared ‘Movin’ Out (1971 Version)’ from their forthcoming limited edition vinyl, ‘1971: The Road Starts Hear’ – listen below.

The previously unreleased seven-track record will arrive next week (November 26) as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday 2021 drop. It’s available as a black LP (10,000 copies) and on cassette (2000 copies).

To preview the rare collection – which also includes early versions of ‘Somebody’, ‘Walkin’ The Dog’, ‘Mama Kin’ and ‘Dream On’ – Aerosmith shared the ’71 recording of ‘Movin’ Out’ on their official YouTube channel yesterday (November 17).


The track was later re-recorded for Steven Tyler and co’s 1973 self-titled debut album.

“The landmark early recording was made with Joe Perry’s Wollensak reel-to-reel tape machine in 1971 by Mark Lehman,” an official description reads, “who owned the infamous van and became Aerosmith’s one-man road crew, either in the band’s Boston rehearsal room in front of a few select friends, or at a rehearsal the band did during a soundcheck for an early show.”

Earlier this year, Aerosmith signed a deal with Universal Music Group (UMG) that licensed the entirety of the group’s recorded output as well as personal archives. ‘1971: The Road Starts Hear’ appears to be the first release from the new team-up.

You can see the record’s full tracklist below:


01. ‘Intro – Somebody’
02. ‘Reefer Head Woman’
03. ‘Walkin’ The Dog’

01. ‘Movin’ Out’
