Bonfire is less a box set, and more a tribute to Bon Scott, the late great second lead singer that AC/DC had (after Dave Evans). But to me, Bon Scott is the first and real lead singer. That's not a slight against Brian Johnson because he's proven himself and then some. That's why I used the words "to me". 9 times out of 10, when I listen to Accadacca, I listen to Bon Scott.

Featuring four albums spread over five discs, Bonfire is largely live. Early versions of this box, which I am lucky enough to own, were loaded to the gills with extras. More on that later, but I highly recommend the original box set rather than the reissue that comes in a digipack book.

Part 1 - Live at Atlantic Studios. This was an old set released as a promotional LP to radio stations. As much as possible was remastered from the original tapes, which were partially erased. The rest of the music was taken from an actual LP and spliced. Sounds as great as can be expected, and I love the sound of AC/DC playing away in a small venue. This disc is proof that these can could gel like no other.

Part 2 - Let There Be Rock: The Movie. Spread out over 2 CDs, this is the complete concert. It is heavy, it is fast, and it is awesome. To hear the band jam away on a 10 minute + version of "High Voltage" is simply magical. This is previously unreleased on a commercially available CD.

Part 3 - Volts. This was the disc I was most interested in, and it's a little strange. It's partly rare and demo material, with a couple hits ("Ride On" and "It's A Long Way") sprinkled in. Obviously AC/DC cleared out their vaults of rare stuff with the Backtracks box last year, but this is a fun taster.

STRENGTHS:
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!
WEAKNESSES:
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!
BOTTOM LINE:
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!

This trubute to there great singer who passed away in 1980 Bon Scott was a bit of a disapointment in one area!
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!
