Welcome to the rock scene, please allow me to introduce you to Aerosmith: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer.

'Aerosmith' debut LP,Wikipedia

It was January of 1973 we were introduced to the self-titled debut album of Aerosmith.

Overall the album 'Aerosmith' was reviewed very well but it took awhile for the album to actually take off. A couple of songs that were released as singles, "Dream On" and "Mama Kin" became pretty much signature songs for the band.

Upon the reissue of the album in 1976, that alone proved to be more beneficial as it would end up double platinum by 1986.
