"Gems" is a compilation album released by Aerosmith in 1988 (see 1988 in music) under the label Columbia. It was the first compilation of studio material since 1980s Aerosmith's Greatest Hits. Concentrating mainly on heavier material than the radio-friendly single output on "Greatest Hits", the album is noted for the inclusion of the previously unreleased studio version of "Chip Away The Stone." A staple of the band's live set, the studio version of this song first surfaced as the b-side to the 1977 single "Draw the Line," and a live rendition had appeared on 1978's "Live Bootleg".
