LIVE FROM ATLANTIC STUDIOS (Disc 1): Long available as a bootleg, this is THE definitive live AC/DC recording. Bon and the boys in their prime.
LIVE IN PARIS (Disc 2): Nothing new here for the hardcore fan, but still essential. Even better than "If You Want Blood...".
VOLTS (Disc 3): Okay, they could have dug a little deeper for rarities, but the demo material is awesome! Louder, tougher and better than the versions on "Highway to Hell". Young and Vanda really knew how to capture the band's raw magic in the studio. Mutt Lange, on the other hand, neutered AC/DC with his overly slick production techniques.
Plus, let's not forget the bitchin' poster, sticker, guitar pick, tatoo, and (my favorite) bottle opener. Cheers!
BACK IN BLACK: Totally pointless to include this. BONFIRE would have worked better as a lower-priced 4-CD set. AC/DC may have been obligated to deliver a 5-CD collection, which might explain its inclusion. Still a lazy decision, in my opinion.
They could have included more Atlantic Studios material and other Australian-only rarities.
The booklet is well done, but perhaps a bit skimpy for a box set of this price. Then again, I can't think of another box set that comes with a bottle opener!
A fine tribute to one of Rock 'n Roll's greatest frontmen. While not perfect, BONFIRE belongs in any self-respecting AC/DC fan's collection. Let There Be Rock!
It is a box set containing 4 albums!
LET THERE BE ROCK (live) - Is a great live show from 1979 in Paris. Which is the famous video every AC/DC fan should have a copy of on VHS and is asking for it to be put to DVD now! Thats not the downfall, that is a great album!
ATLANTIC STUDIOS - This is a great small radio show they did in New York just after the release of Powerage, however the downfall is, there was two of these shows!....where's the other one? There was another Live at the atlantic studios recorded the next year or so? so where is that show??? for the 30 minutes this show ran, they couldve easly fit that other show onto the same disc here!
Back In Black - I know this is the tribute album they first made FOR Bon Scott... but what person doesnt already have this album???? Particuly seeing as how it would be AC/DC fans buying this box set, im sure theres not an AC/DC fan anywhere who doesent already have the album! let alone non AC/DC fans will probably have this album already in there collection somewhere! Why was this included?????
Voltz - AC/DC said they tryd to find as much rare Bon material as possible....well, they didnt seem to look very hard! Not to mention that "School Days" may not have been released world wide, but has been available on the Australian TNT album since it came out in 1975! When they released this box set in Australia, they should have swapped "school days" for "love at first feel" which was not released in Australia!
There are so many songs missing! and not just live performances!Read more ›
