United StatesMonophonic 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 inspriation for the name of the rock group Aerosmith.
