AEROSMITH Released Third Album ‘TOYS IN THE ATTIC’ 45 Years Ago…

8 April 2020

Hard rockers AEROSMITH released their third, successful album ‘TOYS IN THE ATTIC’
on 8 April 1975, today 45 years ago. It sold 8 million copies in the US and its second single WALK THIS WAY became a monster hit afterward when they teamed up with RUN DMC.

AllMusic wrote: “After nearly getting off the ground with Get Your Wings, Aerosmith finally perfected their mix of Stonesy raunch and Zeppelin-esque riffing with their third album, ‘Toys
in the Attic.’ The success of the album derives from a combination of an increased sense of songwriting skills and purpose… Aerosmith cribbed heavily from the records of the Rolling Stones, New York Dolls, and Led Zeppelin, but they didn’t have any of the menace of their influences, nor any of their mystique. Aerosmith was a gritty, street-wise hard rock band who played their blues as blooze and were in it for a good time; Toys in the Attic crystallizes that attitude.”
