Jam '78 is a live VHS video by the American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was filmed on the 4th of July weekend at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas where Aerosmith headlined the
World Music Festival. It was released on April 25, 1989.
Jam was the informal nickname of an annual summer rock concert called the
World Music Festival (1978–1988). It was held in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl, and in Houston, at either the Astrodome or the Rice Stadium on the campus of Rice University.
Many consecutive summers of huge concerts, featuring several artists, began in July 1978, with the 1st annual
Jam, which sold out with over 80,000 attendees. Each
Jam had a unique lineup of major artists chosen by the promoter. Over the years, the
Jam featured some of the top-billed headliner artists of the day, including Aerosmith, Heart, Deep Purple, Boston, Journey, Ted Nugent, Scorpions, Loverboy, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Blue Öyster Cult, Sammy Hagar, Nazareth, Styx, Foghat, Santana, The Eagles & Triumph, among others.
Jam was a three-day festival held over July 4 weekend in 1978 and encompassed rock and country.
Jam was created by Louis Messina, promoter of Pace Concerts in Houston, and David Krebs, manager of the rock acts Ted Nugent and kAerosmith. Krebs wanted to duplicate the music festival California Jam II (held March 18, 1978 in Ontario, California) in Texas. Krebs was unfamiliar with the territory, so he contacted Messina in Houston.
On April 14, 1979, the "Tangerine Bowl" hosted the Florida World Music Festival. The concert was commonly known as "Florrida Jam", named after previous festivals in other states like California Jam and
Jam. The spelling of Florida used two R's like the
Jam that used two X's and preceded it. Acts included Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Brownsville Station and Blackfoot. Ted Nugent joined Aerosmith on stage during their encore and played a couple of songs with the band.
The Cotton Bowl has been used by a number of teams in several sports throughout its history, and has hosted three collegiate bowl games. The Cotton Bowl has also hosted large music concerts, including the inaugural
Jam and other similar events.
Grim Reaper soon became readily identifiable with Bowcott's guitar work and lead vocalist Steve Grimmett's head voice vocals. Their successful world tour included a support show at
Jam playing to over 20,000 people. Their 1985 follow-up, "Fear No Evil", showed improvement on the production front and also enjoyed moderate success in both the United States and Europe.
Notes: Savvy was bumped at the last minute by The Eagles management. Show lineup confirmed by Steve Jones of Savvy. Christopher Cross, who already didn't fit on the hard rocking
Jam stage, was resoundingly booed at the outset of "Sailing", then later cut his set short after throwing up on stage due to heat exhaustion. The Eagles refused to play at first and were an hour late going on due to issues with the 'Hard Rock' line up.
"Little Queen", with the hit "Barracuda" (No. 11, 1977), became Heart's second million-seller. Ann and Nancy appeared on the cover of "Rolling Stone" on July 28, 1977 (issue No. 244). Heart performed at the first
Jam on July 4 weekend in 1978 in Dallas, Texas, at the Cotton Bowl in front of 100,000 people, along with Aerosmith, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Journey, Frank Marino, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Head East, and Walter Egan.
A self-titled album appeared in 1985 on CBS Records to mild controversy because of the cover art: a scantily-dressed woman lying on her back with her legs spread, forming a V. The hype worked and the album made the charts. But before the first US tour, drummer Van de Graaf was replaced by Fritz Randow (ex-Eloy). Apart from playing 60 concerts, the band was also in the two largest festivals of the country, "Day On The Green" in Oakland before 60,000 and the "
Jam" in front of over 80,000 spectators. After his return to Germany, John Lockton was replaced by the former Accept guitarist, Herman Frank.
According to Steven Adler's autobiography, "My Appetite For Destruction: Sex & Drugs & Guns N' Roses", the entire EP was recorded at Pasha Studios in Hollywood with pre-recorded audience applause and cheering in the background, as Geffen's engineers told him "it would cost too much to actually record a live record". Duff McKagan says in his autobiography, "It's So Easy (and other Lies)", that "the crowd noise...is from a 1970's rock festival called the
Jam. We thought it would be funny to put a "huge" stadium crowd in the background at a time when we were lucky to be playing to a few hundred."
In the mid- to late-1970s, the band enjoyed tremendous popularity in the United States and in Japan, though they failed to make a big impression in Britain. Still, they were among the most popular hard rock acts in America in the late 1970s, along with Heart, Kiss, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top, and Boston. Their massive popularity waned, however, following Joe Perry and Brad Whitford's departures. Following both guitarists' return to the band and its complete drug cleanup, Aerosmith made a prodigious return to success, once described as "the single most successful comeback in the history of heavy metal, if not all of popular music." During both the 1970s and the 1987–1995 era, Aerosmith undertook grueling world tours that numbered in the triple digits numbers of dates, headlining or co-headlining festivals along the way, such as the
Jam in 1978 and 1987, the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington in 1990 and 1994, and Woodstock '94.
Michaels, Rockett, Dall, and DeVille signed to independent label Enigma Records in 1986 (see 1986 in music) for approximately $30,000. Their debut album, "Look What the Cat Dragged In", was released August 2, 1986. It originally included only one single, "Cry Tough"; however, "Look What the Cat Dragged In" became a surprise success and subsequently spawned three charting hits: "Talk Dirty to Me", "I Want Action", and "I Won't Forget You", The record became the biggest-selling-album in Enigma's history. With heavy rotation on MTV, their debut earned the band tours with fellow glam rockers Ratt, Cinderella, and Quiet Riot, as well as a coveted slot in the
Jam in Dallas. The album ultimately sold 4 million copies worldwide. The band began giving intimate and controversial interviews to rock journalist Judy Wieder at the Hollywood home they all shared in June 1986, before the official release of "Look What the Cat Dragged In". Wieder, the first to follow the band closely, circulated their many dicey conversations to the popular rock magazines of the day, including "Circus", "Creem", "Rip Magazine", "Rock Express" and "Hit Parader", ensuring enormous visibility for the album's release. In 1987 the band recorded a cover of the Kiss song "Rock and Roll All Nite" for the soundtrack to "Less Than Zero".
After spending time on the Boston club circuit under the tutelage of their first manager, Frank Connelly, the band began working with New York managers Steve Leber and David Krebs. Leber describes the band as "the closest thing I've ever seen to the Rolling Stones". In early 1972, the managers arranged the gig at the legendary nightclub Max's Kansas City to showcase the group to record company executives. They subsequently signed a record deal with Columbia Records in 1972 and released their eponymous debut album in 1973. This was followed by "Get Your Wings" in 1974. Around this time, Aerosmith continued to tour wherever they could and opened for bands like Mott the Hoople. The band had a minor hit in "Dream On", which peaked at number 59 in 1973, but Aerosmith did not break into the mainstream until the back-to-back releases of "Toys in the Attic" (1975) and "Rocks" (1976). In 1975, they achieved their first top-40 hit in "Sweet Emotion". Soon after, "Dream On" was rereleased and hit number six in 1976, followed by another top-10 hit "Walk This Way". Additionally, "Rocks" produced the hit singles "Last Child", "Back in the Saddle", and "Home Tonight". By 1976, Aerosmith found themselves headlining huge stadiums and major rock music festivals. That year, Tyler emerged as a prominent rock star and sex symbol in his own right, gracing the cover of "Rolling Stone" magazine, and 1977's "Draw the Line" continued the band's success and they were catapulted to international fame and recognition, launching tours in Europe and Japan. A series of Hot 100 hits continued throughout the remainder of the decade, including "Draw the Line", "Kings and Queens", and "Chip Away the Stone". Aerosmith's first five albums have also all since gone multiplatinum and all five are considered to be among the greatest hard rock albums of all time. Aerosmith toured heavily throughout the mid- to late 1970s, and their live shows during this time period were captured through 1978's live album "Live! Bootleg" and the 1989 VHS release "Live
Jam '78". Also in 1978, Tyler made his acting debut as the leader of the Future Villain Band in the film "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", alongside his Aerosmith bandmates. The film also spawned Aerosmith's cover of the Beatles hit "Come Together", which was Aerosmith's last top-40 single for nine years.
