We just got this cool, exclusive and unabridged video from moderator Mr. Bonzai of his "tech talk" with Joe Perry and producer/engineer Jack Douglas on the making of Aerosmith's Toys in the Attic.
The "Birth of a Record" discussion occurred at Winter NAMM in January 2017—just before Perry and Douglas were honored at the 32nd annual NAMM TEC Awards. Perry received the Les Paul Award, and Douglas was inducted into the TEC Hall of Fame.

Toys in the Attic was recorded at The Record Plant, New York City, in 1975. The album won two Grammy Awards and sold more than 32 million copies worldwide. It also dropped some classic Aerosmith songs, such as "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion."
