"Nine Lives" is the 12th studio album by American rockers Aerosmith, released March 18, 1997. They had signed a multi-million-dollar contract with Columbia Records before they had completed their deal with Geffen, which meant that a lot was riding on their first Columbia LP since '82. During the recording the band nearly broke up, and they worked with a number of producers - including Glen Ballard, the man behind Alanis Morissette - before settling on Kevin Shirley. The album peaked at #1 at the Billboard Charts and hitsingle "Pink" won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance. The album has been released with various tracklistings (ranging from 12 to 15 tracks). This audiophile pressing contains the "European" listing with 15 tracks. Includes the monster hit "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", featured on the soundtrack of blockbuster movie "Armageddon".
