"Draw the Line catches fire more times than not...(it) would turn out to be the last true studio album from Aerosmith's original lineup for nearly a decade." — AllMusic.com
When Aerosmith first came charging out of Boston in 1973, there was no infrastructure (i.e. Internet) to boost their reputation. To make it back then, a band had to have good songs, good chops, instrumental prowess — and chemistry. Aerosmith had it all; they were signed to Columbia Records in 1972 and released their eponymous debut album a year later, which went platinum!
Draw the Line is Aerosmith's fifth album, released in December 1977. It was recorded in an abandoned convent near New York City, rented out for that purpose. The album is certified gold by the R.I.A.A. and reached No. 11 on the Billboard 200 in 1978. The portrait of the band on the cover was drawn by the celebrity caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.
Draw The Line is a classic, showcasing the band in its late ’70s prime. For Record Store Day 2014 Sony’s Legacy division reissued it and three more classic titles on high quality wax: Rocks, Night In the Ruts and Rock In A Hard Place.
Aerosmith is the best-selling American rock band of all time, having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, including 70.2 million albums in the United States alone. With 25 gold albums, 18 platinum albums, and 12 multi-platinum albums, they hold the record for the most gold albums by an American group, the most total certifications by an American group, and are tied for the most multi-platinum albums by an American group.
Their string of multi-platinum albums, beginning with their 1973 eponymous debut album, includes their 1974 album Get Your Wings. In 1975, the band broke into the mainstream with the album Toys in the Attic, and their 1976 follow-up Rocks cemented their status as hard rock superstars. Two additional albums followed in 1977 and 1979. Throughout the 1970s, the band toured extensively and charted a string of Hot 100 singles. By the end of the decade, they were among the most popular hard rock bands in the world and developed a loyal following of fans.
