“Sweet Emotion” was a hit off Aerosmith’s 1975 album Toys in the Attic. A major feature of the tune, which peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, is guitarist Joe Perry’s talkbox guitar work which clearly emotes the title of the song in the intro and other spots. The effect Perry used is a now discontinued talk box called The Bag, made by Kustom Electronics. The track was produced by Jack Douglas and recorded at The Record Plant.
