Remastered from the Original Source Tapes
With Steven Tyler on vocals, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford on guitars, Tom Hamilton on bass, and Joey Kramer on drums, Aerosmith has outlasted all the trends and fads of rock and roll to become one of the most powerful and electrifying forces in popular music, selling in excess of 100 million albums since their inception in Boston, MA circa 1970.
In the era of sex, drugs and rock & roll, Aerosmith arrived with a sexy swagger and thrusts of metal, glam and boogie woogie. Tyler’s lyrics laced with double entendres and witty humor perfectly complimented the group's raunchy, bluesy backdrops. Beyond driving rock and roll tunes, Aerosmith also created quintessential power ballads, a dual skill which helped the band yield a string of gold and platinum albums.
If Aerosmith's second album Get Your Wings saw the band establishing their signature brand of sleazy-blues rock, 1975's 8x platinum Toys In The Attic saw the band literally perfecting it. The combination of Perry's big-league riffs and Tyler's hypersexed lyrics make for a rip-roaring ride and the embodiment of '70s rock 'n' roll excess. Beloved anthems like "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion," infinitely reaffirm Toys In The Attic's legendary stature in the pantheon of rock, an album which Rolling Stone rates #229 of the '500 Greatest Albums of All Time.' This Sony Legacy edition of Toys In The Attic has been newly remastered from the original source tapes and is pressed on 180g audiophile vinyl housed in an individually numbered jacket.
