Aerosmith is the eponymous debut studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released on January 5, 1973 by Columbia Records.

The album peaked at number 21 on the US Billboard 200 Chart in 1976.

Aerosmith's self-titled debut album was released in the fall of 1973, climbing to number 166. "Dream On" was released as the first single and it was a minor hit, reaching number 59. For the next year, the band built a fan base by touring America, supporting groups as diverse as the Kinks, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Sha Na Na, and Mott the Hoople. The performance of Get Your Wings (1974), the group's second album and the first produced by Jack Douglas, benefited from their constant touring, spending a total of 86 weeks on the chart.

Such a CLASSIC ALBUM! Pump was the album that got me into Aerosmith, but his one REALLY got me into it. Although really, really overplayed, "walk this way" is a great song, and so are all the other ones. this album shows just how ' awesome aerosmith really is! Every single song on this album is great! Sweet Emotion is the best.
