Monophonic release of Harry Nilsson's second album for RCA. The first release of Aerial Ballet includes "Daddy's Song." RCA quickly deleted this first release and issued a second pressing without "Daddy's Song." RCA feared that Harry's version would compete with The Monkees's cover of the song.


Aerial Ballet is named for a vaudeville act performed by Nilsson's grandparents.


The album's name was the inspiration for the name of the rock group Aerosmith.[1]
