5.0 out of 5 stars ...With a bullet in his back! April 22 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's funny to see so many reviews complaining about the length of this CD. Basically it's an age thing. These kids don't know what an EP is. An EP ("Extended Play") is like an extra long single. Of course, in the CD age, a single tends to sell for the same price as an album anyway, and the packaging on this is just ace. May as well pay the price and enjoy, it is what it is! It's not like it costs an arm and a leg. Just don't buy that extra coffee today and you're even-steven.

'74 Jailbreak is one of my all-time favourite AC/DC releases. Featuring five tracks from the Aussie version of Dirty Deeds and High Voltage, unreleased on this side of the pond, this was a little bit of a gift to fans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of these albums. It features the earlier, more rock n' roll sounds of the band and of course the immortal lead vocal charms of Bon Scott.

All five songs here are winners. Of course "Jailbreak" itself is still played live by the band, and who can forget that video? Great song, classic Bon storytelling. "You Ain't Got A Hold On Me", "Show Business" and "Soul Stripper" (an awesome long dramatic one) are equally good. The EP ends with a cover of "Baby, Please Don't Go" which was actually the first time I ever heard this song.

Great EP, great songs all five. And yes, there were a lot of others available on single B-sides and Aussie albums, but don't fear. This boxed set fills in a lot of the gaps.

Get into that early AC/DC mindset, and enjoy this brief reminder of what made Bon Scott so awesome. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars x 5 Songs = 25 Stars ((Remaster Review)) Sept. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
Despite longtime AC/DC fans' immediate acceptance of replacement singer Brian Johnson (resulting in one of rock's all-time best boneheaded shred fests, 1980's Back in Black), there was still demand for Bon Scott-era unreleased tracks. Several of their early albums in Australia and Europe (such as T.N.T.) were later combined together for their first U.S. release, 1976's High Voltage, while several tracks were cut from the original versions and never issued stateside. 1984's five-song EP, '74 Jailbreak, features these forgotten tracks from the band's early days. "Jailbreak" automatically became a concert standard when the EP came out, and it remains a mystery why it wasn't released earlier. Also included is the largely instrumental "Soul Stripper," a cover of "Baby Please Don't Go," plus a pair of Angus Young-Malcolm Young-Scott originals: "You Ain't Got a Hold on Me" and the autobiographical "Show Business." Although '74 Jailbreak is by no means a definitive collection of early rarities (such compositions as "Fling Thing," "Love Song," "Stick Around," "R.I.P.- Rock in Peace," and "School Days" remain unreleased in the States), it is a worthwhile, brief snapshot of early AC/DC.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with this on first listen! Feb. 15 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
I know this is AC/DC shortest album and all but this is one of their most concestant albums and also one of their strongest. I bought this for 'Jailbreak' which is the best song on the album by the way. But anyways I bought it for "Jailbreak' and fell in love with the whole thing. All the songs are good. AC/DC's version of 'Baby Please Dont Go' is one of the best versions I have ever heard and I have heard them all. 'Baby Please Dont Go' is one of my all time favorite songs so its hard for someone to please me with their version so that is saying a lot about AC/DC's. If you are a fan of old AC/DC say like the Bon Scott era then you will love this, and if you liked Brian Johnson better you will still love this, you wount be let down, and this you can count on!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent songs, could use a few more though Dec 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
These songs are absoulutely great. I listen to them over and over and never get tired of them. You may be skeptical about this album, and thats understandable, but every miniute of every song is excellent. If this album included some of the other songs that were released on the Austrailian versions of the albums, such as "School Days," then this album would be 5 stars. I do not reccomend this for people who look more for length than quaility, but i do reccomend this for people who look for vice versa.
