-You get a booklet filled with rare photographs, quotations, and band history! If you're gonna do a box set, you may as well include the history that goes along with the band!
-Five discs, all of which are excellent, make up the set.
-Three discs consist of rare, live recordings that were previously unreleased on compact disc outside this collection. If you like live ACDC material, that's reason alone to buy the collection.
-One disc consists of rarites and early demos. You even get the band's rare cover of Chuck Berry's School Days, which has to date only been available on the band's Australia-only T.N.T. album!
-A major problem with this set is that the price is all over the place. I've seen it anywhere from $30 to $80. If you're gonna buy this, make sure you get the best deal!
-Casual fans aren't going to want to give this set a chance due to the (usually) high price.
-Why the hell is Back In Black in this set!? The set's called Bon Fire, not Brian Fire! And YES, the version of Back In Black in this collection is just the normal one - it's not early demos with Bon singing, like I was hoping for.Read more ›
cd 1. basically a fair to good bootleg from a radio show featuring BON
cd 2. Outtakes from recordings, songs from TV shows and songs not released on Non-Australian recordings with BON (but not all of them, according to other reviewers),which don't sound half bad
cd 3/4. The audio version of the movie "let their be rock", without the interview segments, from the Highway to Hell tour that sounds very good
cd 5. the Back in Black cd.
Thus if you are a Bon Scott fan you won't be disappointed with this 5 cd box set.
If you are a casual AC/DC listener or someone who is not head over heals over the work Bon did with AC/DC, then I suggest you spend your money elsewhere on other AC/DC recordings.
If there were 10 stars given, it would have to be only a 6/10 because I have heard better sounding bootlegs with Bon Scott on them; AC/DC fans probably have Back in Black cd and the Movie "Let there be Rock".
While Back In Black is a Brian Johnson album- I think that it's fitting that it was included in this set. It was, after all, a tribute to the late, great Bon Scott. I also love the original artwork on Back In Black.
Also included is a really cool AC/DC bottle opener/keychain, poster,sticker, and a very insightful booklet about AC/DC's years with Bon Scott.
This box set probably wouldn't appeal to "newbies" only "hardcores" like myself and many others who have grown up listening to everything by this incredible hard rock band.
To people who are just getting into AC/DC I would highly recommend Highway To Hell, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Powerage and Let There Be Rock. All are outstanding albums with Bon Scott.
Also check out the classics Back In Black and For Those About To Rock. The two best offerings(in my opinion) from AC/DC with Brian Johnson on vocals.
Bonfire is an excellent tribute to one of rock's greatest front men. As I stated before-Bon would be proud.

Bon is the best, and it's definitely a must for any rock collection! I would highly recommend it! peace outPublished on Oct. 21 2013 by meaghan
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). Read morePublished on March 14 2011 by LeBrain

To the dude who's crying about why they included Back In Black: Back In Black was included because it was originally put out as a tribute album put out in Bon Scott's honour. Read morePublished on Sept. 4 2004 by WJH
I have one question about this boxed set. Why did they include "Back In Black?" The title itself - BONFIRE - indicates this to be some kind of tribute to Bon Scott. Read morePublished on June 1 2004
