Aerosmith is the eponymous debut album by American rock band Aerosmith, released in January 1973 by Columbia Records. The song “Walkin’ the Dog” is a cover song originally performed by Rufus Thomas. Also the single “Dream On” became an American top ten single when re-released in 1976. “Dream On” was first released as a single in 1973.
The original cover misprinted the song “Walkin’ the Dog” as “Walkin’ the Dig”. When a second pressing of the album was released in 1973, this error was corrected, and the cover replaced with a modified one made up entirely of the photo of the band members. This second pressing is the more commonly available version of the LP.
