Product Description

Product Description

The collection of early tracks that introduced the U.S. to AC/DC! Includes T.N.T.; The Jack; Live Wire; High Voltage , and more.

Amazon.ca

In 1976, when the Eagles, Peter Frampton, and Heart ruled the rock airwaves, along came five scruffy young men (the lead guitarist was maybe all of 18 and dressed in a schoolboy's uniform) from Australia playing some of the rowdiest, hardest, dirtiest rock of all time. Screaming "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)," singer Bon Scott teased like a braggart. Sensing the rock community's growing dissatisfaction with bloated, epic-scaled bands, AC/DC were indeed a high-voltage act: their drummer nailed the beat with fury, their bluesy guitar riffs mutated into something metallic and sharp-edged, and Scott's vocals took the shrillness of early Robert Plant to a leaner and meaner place. "Live Wire" is one of the most electrifying hard rock songs imaginable, "High Voltage" and "TNT" are the musical equivalent of touching exposed nerves with a rusty fork, and "Jack" proves that white rock dudes can, contrary to popular belief, get down. Whew! --Lorry Fleming

A classic AC/DC "must have" album. Once again good blues and rock fusion...good down to earth Rock with Lots of Volume and high energy...High Voltage it is...got to have it if you like classic AC / DC...forget the screaming from 1980 and on...that is too commercial.

""High Voltage"", AC/DC's first studio-recored album, is an excellent buy. Any fan of AC/DC should buy this album before any other AC/DC album. Though it doesn't stand up to their next album, ""Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"", ""High Voltage"" does beat out ""Let There Be Rock"", ""Powerage"", ""Flick Of The Switch"", and ""Fly On The Wall"". This album was recorded with Angus Young on Guitar, Malcolm Young on Guitar, Bon Scott on Vocals, Rob Bailey on Bass, Peter Clack on Drums, George Young on Bass (For recording only), and Tony Currenti on Drums (For recording only), or Angus Young, Lead Guitar, Malcolm Young, Guitar, Bon Scott, Lead Singer, Phil Rudd, Drums, and Mark Evans, Bass, depending on who you ask. All songs are A. Young - M. Young - B. Scott, except "Can I Sit Next To You Girl", which is A. Young - M. Young.
"It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" (5:16) (4/5): A powerful track with a catchy riff. Describes the challenges of the rock 'n' roll life.
"Rock 'n' Roll Singer" (5:04) (4/5): A defiant track showing dislike of the "normal" crowd that disapproves of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle.
"The Jack" (5:52) (3/5): A playful track with a bluesy tone.
"Live Wire" (5:50) (4/5): Another strong track with a screaming chorus.
"T.N.T." (3:34) (5/5): The best song on this album. The Young brothers' blasting guitars compliment the vocals, the whole band gets in on the singing, it has a strong chorus, and feautures Bon Scott's scream and singing voice.
"Can I Sit Next To You Girl" (4:12) (3/5): This song showcases Bon Scott's voice.
"Little Lover" (5:37) (3/5): Another more bluesy song which again showcases Bon's voice and attitude.
"She's Got Balls" (4:51) (3/5): A slightly odd song, which is, apparently, a tribute to Bon Scott's wife.
"High Voltage" (4:03) (4/5): A song that that captures the AC/DC spirit and is similar to "Rock 'n' Roll Singer" in its defiance. A powerful, loud, overall great track.

AC/DC's debut album, High Voltage, is a stripped-down collection of loud, raw, rude rockers, mostly odes to rock & roll and its attendant hard-partying lifestyle -- to paraphrase the leadoff track, "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)," getting drunk, stoned, beat up, and laid. The band reveled in its own macho obnoxiousness, particularly Bon Scott; at the end of the gleefully sexist, double-entendre-filled "The Jack," Scott grandiosely thanks a hostile, booing dubbed-in crowd. While their sense of humor and clever wordplay made early AC/DC a great deal of sleazy, infectious fun, the band's revolutionary musical attack could not be overlooked -- Angus Young's manic guitar solos overlaid a series of simple, basic boogie grooves delivered with ferocious power and volume, a sound that made the band a popular attraction at British punk clubs around this same time. The formula would be refined on subsequent albums, but High Voltage proves that AC/DC were already in the big leagues.

High Voltage (1975.) ACDC's second album in their native Australia.
Back when they had Bon Scott at the helm, ACDC was one of the finest classic hard rock acts in the world. It's just a shame that on February 19, 1980, his life was cut tragically short. But, the music that he made with the band back in the old days more than lives on. What many fans don't know is that the band's first two albums released in Australia are actually a little different than the versions that got released in America. In Australia, there were two different albums - T.N.T. and High Voltage. In America, only High Voltage was released, though it actually ended up being quite different from its Aussie counterpart - The Australian T.N.T. album is actually more like the American High Voltage album than the album called High Voltage that got an American release. Hope I cleared that up. However, in recent years, some of this material that never made it to America before got an American release in the form of the '74 Jailbreak EP and the Bonfire box set. Well, sorry about that long intro. Read on for my review of the album.
The first thing you'll notice about this album is that the tracklist is almost NOTHING like the American version of the album! Only a few of the tracks on this album are available on the American version. Among these are the classic rocker Bon wrote about his wife, She's Got Balls. Most of these tracks were released in America in the form of the '74 Jailbreak EP. Among these ones are Baby Please Don't Go, Soul Stripper, and You Ain't Got A Hold On Me. Sadly though, some of these songs never made it to America in any shape or form. These tracks include Love Song and Stick Around. It's a shame these songs never got an American release, because they really are good tracks.
