Product Description

Product Description

Released in Australia in 1976-but not in the U.S. 'til '81! A tawdry rock classic: the title track plus Big Balls; Problem Child; Squealer , and more.


While Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap sounds like every other AC/DC album, it is distinguished by a lyrical puerility spectacular even by Bon Scott's standards. Two tracks--"Love at First Feel" and "Squealer"--are ruminations on the morality of sex with schoolgirls. "Big Balls," ostensibly a narrative from the perspective of an aristocrat socialite, is actually a somewhat labored excuse for the band to chant "We've got big balls." This juvenile posturing was, to a large degree, AC/DC winding up their burgeoning foreign audience by playing to stereotypical expectations of Australians. On Dirty Deeds, however, AC/DC try too hard. Only on "Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round to Be a Millionaire)" is Scott's laconic wit deployed to real effect: the sheer glee in the line "Get your fuckin' jumbo jet off my airport!" is almost worth the album's purchase price. --Andrew Mueller

5.0 out of 5 stars Go With The Original! March 14 2001
Format:Audio CD
I just wanted to put in my two cents about the Australian version of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap". Despite its rather hefty price, it offers some bonuses not available on the U.S. or English versions.
1) The artwork is noticeably different, and almost gives the album an "underground" or "independent" feel.
2) The remastered version sounds terrific. Granted, this is probably not substantially different than the U.S. remastered edition, but it puts the two versions on similar sonic ground.
3) The song "Dirty Deeds" on the Aussie edition is a slightly longer version than on the U.S. release; you'll notice it toward the song's end where Bon sings the line "Dirty Deeds" a couple more times and also adds in a little extra squeal.
4) The Aussie version includes all of the song lyrics in the CD booklet. Nice to know for sure what Bon was saying!
5) Maybe most significantly, this album includes the killer song "Jailbreak" in lieu of "Rocker" (an excellent song in its own right, which is found on the Aussie album "T.N.T." or the U.S. "Dirty Deeds"). "Jailbreak" was the reason I bought the Aussie vinyl album back in the early 80's instead of the U.S. version. Great anthemic album closing track and delivers all of the goods you'd expect from the Bon-era AC/DC. (I realize that the "'74 Jailbreak" EP was released in the U.S., it's just kind of cool to have that song on the actual album from which it was originally taken.)
To sum up, the Aussie CD is a worthwhile purchase for the diehard AC/DC-Bon Scott fan, who is looking for the version as it was originally released Down Under, which includes some noteworthy bonuses. I strongly recommend this CD. (This version is also included in the Aussie 6-CD Box Set No. 1, if you've got the $$). Whatever version you have or buy, enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good album, but not great. July 17 2004
By roamer
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying that I am a big AC/DC fan, and I really like Dirty Deeds. That said, it is a good album. It is not great. There are flashes of brilliance (Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Problem Child, Rocker). There are also some mediocre songs. For instance, Big Balls is a funny song, but really not a good song. Squealer is ok at best, and There's Gonna Be SOme Rockin' is forgettable.
This album is much more bluesey than their later work (Highway to Hell, Back in Black, etc) and also more lyrically provacative.
If you are an AC/DC fan you will like this album. If you are looking for a more representative album of AC/DC pick of Highway to Hell of Back in Black.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want some Dirty Deeds...You got it! Nov. 26 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the original version of Dirty Deeds, the best one!It features the superb rock track "Jailbreak" that would have a worldwide release only in '84...it also includes the instrumental "Fling Thing" and "R.I.P.(Rock in Peace)both unreleased, and classics like "Problem Child","Ride On" and "Big Balls".This is one of the best AC/DC stuff you can get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap June 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1975, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap did not hit the U.S. until 1981, when AC/DC became rock icons the previous year and fans were growing hungry for more material featuring the band's late singer, Bon Scott. Overall, the record is worth the wait, even if there is absolutely no reason to place "Problem Child" on the album since it was placed on Let There Be Rock. The title track became a concert staple for the band, but Dirty Deeds's most well-known track is arguably "Big Balls," a sleazy, ambiguous number that would become one of the band's most well-recognized songs. The album's greatest artistic moment, however, comes in the form of "Ride On," where AC/DC experiments with a slow, rhythmic blues ballad. The song, highlighted by the Keith Richards-inspired licks of Angus Young and the haunting, melancholy lyrics of Bon Scott, shows AC/DC in a rare sensitive form yet manages to retain the raw power that has since become the band's trademark ("Ride On" would be the only Bon Scott-era song to be placed on the 1986 compilation Who Made Who). On the whole, Dirty Deeds is a fine album with some nice treats for diehards. Though it may not be as well-crafted as the in-memory-of-Bon classic Back in Black, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is another fitting eulogy to one of hard rock's most influential vocalists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another solid effort by AC/DC. April 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is the pinnacle of what rock and roll is supposed to be; filthy, raw and arrogant. AC/DC have always been very good at doing this and this album is their highlight of being exactly that.
It did take me some time to eventually buy this album because listening to the 5 thirty second downloads on the Dirt Deeds main page on amazon I was put off by the song 'Big Balls'. I did eventually buy this album and began to wonder what my problem was. After a few listens I have come to the conclusion that Dirty Deeds is the best album ever done by AC/DC, IMHO. The track 'Big Balls' does grow on you and it is a great laugh on the first few listens.
The track 'Ain't No Fun Waiting Round to be a Millionaire' had me in fits of laughter with Bon's use of lyrics. Hearing him shout 'get your f*cking jumbo jet off my airport' should bring a smile to your face.
All in all, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is a dirty, but great, album. If, however, like me, you didn't thing highly of the album on the first listen then give it time. It should soon become one of your favourite AC/DC albums.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda Wacky
This album is kind of wacky. It is not the true AC/DC that everyone knows and loves. This is some weird, not-so-heavy sound that kind of sounds like later Led Zeppelin. Read more
