About the album — “Toys in the Attic” is Aerosmith’s 2nd best selling album of all time. Still in their early stages, “Toys” is considered one of their most iconic and radio-friendly albums of all time.

The album features hit singles “Sweet Emotion” and “Walk This Way,” two songs that are cemented into the legacy that the group from Boston created. The title track, “Toys,” as well as “Big Ten Inch Record,” and “Adam’s Apple” round out a very hefty group of classic Aerosmith songs.

“Sweet Emotion” was one of the first iconic classic rock songs to feature the talk-box, a tool guitarists use to talk through their guitars. It’s become a signature of Joe Perry’s at live shows.

“Walk This Way” was later re-done in 1986 with Run D.M.C. and the music video that came from it was an international success and is considered one of the greatest music videos of all time.
