AC/DC: Let There Be Rock (DVD)

Two generations of AC/DC freaks have come of age since Let There Be Rock, but while the band has done just fine, thank you, with Brian Johnson as its lead singer, there are those who still consider the late Bon Scott to be the real AC/DC front man. They're the ones most likely to be stoked by the video release of this concert film, recorded in Paris in 1979--especially considering that it was Scott's final filmed performance; he died just two months later--but there's plenty here for all the band's adherents. They were riding high at the time on Highway to Hell, their biggest album to date, so about a third of the 13-song set comes from that recording--including the title tune, arguably the catchiest combination of riff and chorus in the entire AC/DC canon (although "The Jack," "Let There Be Rock," and "Whole Lotta Rosie" are right up there). But it's never really been about the tunes with these guys; theirs is a style built on crunchy, three-chord rock, short on melody but big on groove, with the anonymous but solid rhythm section of rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, drummer Phil Rudd, and bass player Cliff Williams holding it all down. Scott, a bare-chested shrieker, struts about like Robert Plant, but then as now, it's diminutive lead guitarist Angus Young who steals the show. Decked out in his usual schoolboy uniform, Young is a ball of antic energy from the first notes, duck-walking à la Chuck Berry, throwing himself on the floor, stalking and prancing about the stage, doing a kind of striptease and mooning the crowd during "Bad Boy Boogie"… and still managing to turn out some scorching solos. The film includes interview segments (featuring inane questions like "Are you waiting for the Third World War?" and "Do you feel you're a star?"), as well as some shots of the boys goofing around offstage--filler, basically, until we return to the power and glory of AC/DC's music. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD
I've been waiting for this movie/concert to be released on DVD for a long time. I remember buying it on VHS back in 1989 & I would set my VCR on fire with that tape (we not literally, but you know what I mean). This concert represents the AC/DC that I always loved. Don't get me wrong I'm still a huge fan of the band & seeing them live in the summer of 09 is one of the biggest highlight in my life. It's just that I've never cared much for the huge stage, big lighting rig, fancy production or the props, like the bell for "Hell's Bells" or the canons for "For Those About to Rock (we salute you)". In my own humble opinion, this concert is AC/DC at his best. The band on a dim lighted stage with nothing else but their instrument & ripping through a thunderous set list. From Bon Scott tearing the side of pants to Angus Young switching right in the middle of "Whole Lotta Rosie", this is as raw as it gets. Speaking of Angus, he just looks like he's possessed by the devil. He's just all over the stage. The band definitely play with a "Something to prove, nothing to lose" attitude, but I think the highlight of this concert is singer Bon Scott. A truly a one of a kind persona who entertained millions of fans only like he could until his untimely death in February 1980. I think that this show demonstrate exactly was Bon Scott was all about. His unique rock n' roll voice & charisma was, & still is in some way, a big part of the AC/DC magic. A must have for all fans, I just can't wait to see what it will look & sound like on DVD. The only thing that bothers me is that the song "Walk All Over You" is not heard in its entirety & they cut off "T.N.T.". But this is still a must have for all fans. A classic show from a classic era of AC/DC.

I saw this movie in high school. They actually put stacks in the theatre to give it concert sound. That was cutting edge in 1981. I couldn't make out what they were saying in the interviews but I loved it. Fast forward to 30 years later and it's finally out. Fixed up and looking and sounding better then ever. I know some people here have knocked the sound but be thankful that any of this exists. I know now a days you can cut an album in your bed room and film a concert with a bunch of cell phones but at that time it was a big deal and very expensive to film (yes film) a concert (on a side note I love the irony that just as technology gets good enough and cheap enough to film shows that it comes at a time when little to none good music is being made. Yes I am sure in twenty years people will be climbing over each other for that Killers DVD lol). This film captures AC/DC just as they hit their stride as a world class rock band. More importantly we get see Bon Scott in all his glory. I love this film it's got everything that makes rock films great. Loud music, stupid questions asked to the band (are you thinking about the third world war? What does that even mean (LOL and of course swearing and drinking throw in some boobs and drugs and you have the perfect rock film. I can not get over how much they have fixed up the print and the sound! I know now a days everybody wants everything perfect but that's not what rock music was suppose to be about. It was suppose to be about a bunch of people getting together to make a lot of noise. Not because they could play but because they loved the music.Read more ›

This is one true headbangin' good time captured on tape. Angus rips through solo after @ss-kickin' solo as Malcolm, Phil, and Cliff lay down the ballbustin' rhythm. Aside from an incredible concert full of calssic tunes played to perfection, this video, for me anyway, is FUNNY. One can't help but to laugh manically at Angus's slow, rhythmic stripdown before he moons the audience, (the funny aspect being the fact that he's really, really ugly). The first time I saw it, I just rolled on the floor.
The second funniest part in the film would have to be the attempted "interviews" with each band member. With the exception of Bon, the interviewer asks his questions, and subsequently gets the same response from each member: a five second blank stare, followed by "Ummm...", "Yeah", or "I-uh... I don't know." Harsh as it may seem, it's just flat out funny.
Every fan of AC/DC should own this video.

You have to overlook the sound quality a bit but this is the highest voltage AC/DC show that I have seen. Angus works his buns off and sweats so much that his SG short-circuits during "Whole Lotta Rosie". He recovers nicely in time for the classic finale. Keep an eye out for the moon view of his rump during "Bad Boy Boogie". Bon is in classic form as he charms the 1979 Paris audience into chanting along to "The Jack". Outstanding versions of "Live Wire" and "Sin City" are to be heard here. If you want to get better sound quality then get the CD version of the concert in the box set "Bon Fire".
