Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered European vinyl LP pressing of this 1977 release from the Australian Hard Rockers, reissued to coincide with their 2008 studio release and world tour. Eight tracks. Sony/BMG.

Amazon.ca

AC/DC's second U.S. release took the raw energy from their debut, High Voltage, up a notch, producing another huge collection of driving, intense songs for serious headbanging, but adding a bit more professionalism into the equation. The songwriting and production are tighter and more focused, and standouts such as "Whole Lotta Rosie," "Problem Child," "Let There Be Rock," and "Bad Boy Boogie" almost have to fight with "filler" like "Go Down" and "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be" for the spotlight; but really, there's not a wasted track here. Guitarists Angus and Malcom Young further define their grooves, and vocalist Bon Scott sounds like he's on the verge of combusting. Let There Be Rock is big and lean. --Lorry Fleming --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The early years of AC/DC are their Best. When Bon Scott was singing he wasn't Screaming...that was just his gravelly voice...this is their best album by far...it is great driving music...and classic progressive / blues rock and roll with high voltage.

This album should be the staple for anyone who plays/loves rock/metal. Angus is a madman, his skills are off the wall. This album is a cranker; every tune has an awesome chorus, crazy solo, badass rhythm and the bass is great. I'm more of an Bon Scott fan so buy this. The band was younger and better too!

Classic AC/DC. Bon Scott's voice will always be best suited to their music. A very good addition to my collection and in particular Whole Lotta Rosie as the final track to a solid collection of music.

Personally, I feel this release and "Powerage" are Angus's finest moments in the Bon Scott era of the band. Some might argue "Highway To Hell" deserves the honors, but for the sheer sonic ferocity of Angus's fretwork, the buck stops here. The amps are cranked up to 11 and Angus just doesn't let up. No power ballads, no acoustic guitar or "keyboards", just flat out, pedal to the metal, rock 'n' roll. Arguably, AC/DC's rawest & purest "guitar" album. All killer, no filler. A must have for any rock fan.
Oh, & by the way...anyone who reviews this album & a George Michael album is no AC/DC fan. I ain't sellin' my soul just to crack the top 100.

This album couldn't have had a better title. At the time when this came out there were a lot of trendy styles threatening heavy metal's position in the rock world. Wimpy styles like punk, disco, funk, and new wave were trying to stop heavy metal and lay it to rest. But ofcourse there's always gonna be hardrockers whant to hear some honoust rock 'n roll and is exactly what AC/DC delivers. What also explaines the title.
AC/DC's flew straight into the face of fashion with this record and showed heavy metal was alive and kicking. In the punk period AC/DC was one of the most hated bands with their blues-based hardrock. Just like with other metal bands they were considerd as being totaly backword and they were considerd just like many hardrock bands as not being realy tough and only acting as if it is agresive. Very ignorant because Let There Be Rock blew most of the debut albums of those punkbands that come out in the same period to smithereens. Heavy Metal wasn't gonna die. In many ways "LTBR" was the blueprint of eighties metal. All those hardrock bands of the time like Accept,Krokus,Saxon,Y&T,Motley Crue etc. were inspired by AC/DC and specialy "LTRB" also the
New Wave Of British Heavy Metal wouldn't have existed without this album!!!!!

In my point of view everyone should stay clear of buying this socalled up-graded version of what was once a great classic rock album. Why, you may ask. Well, first of all this isn't the original album remastered, they have cut out one of the clear highlights of the original album; Crabsody In Blue! Why the hell did they do that??!
Secondly, they have included a song already released on the Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap album; Problem Child, which really doesen't belong here! Why??!!
Thirdly, in my point of view they have not managed to improve the sound quality an inch! So what's the point?
I wonder what the guys in the band think of the final product, with no info/linernotes or pictures and an axed song lineup? Have they no interest in the way their art is presentet by the record company? And what is with ATCO? They seem to destroy just about every band and original recording they can get their dirty and amaturish hands on! A disappointing fact. This cd could have been one of the best classic rock albums ever released had it not been for this company. If you want to listen to what it should have sounded like, go visit a used vinyl shop and buy the original vinyl version of the album!

I know most people clammer over Back n Black as AC/DC's best, they're wrong! Let There Be Rock is simply one of the finest rock n roll albums ever released, it has an energy and intensity you just don't see very often. Sure Back n Black is a great album and has all the popular songs, but popular doen't always mean the best(think Brintney Spears), this is the defining AC/DC statement, blues based rock cranked, they are not a heavy metal band. Bon Scott brought a humor, energy and a psuedo punk feel to AC/DC that Brain Johnson lacks. Just listen to the Albums, especially those after Back n Black.
This album contains many of AC/DC's popular classics; Whole lotta Rosie, Let There Be Rock & Problem Child. But it also contains some overlooked gems in the AC/DC library; Go Down, Dog Eat Dog and especially OVERDOSE one of AC/DC's finest recordings ever. Hell Aint' A Bad Place to be and Bad Boy oBogie are great too. Back n Black is full of great songs, but it lacks the energetic imediacy of this album and introduces us to their doom and gloom period which isn't what they were about with Bon Scott. Musically(not a term often associated with them, which is unfortunate) basic and brilliant this is the AC/DC album to own, followed close behind by High Voltage, Powerage(An overlooked gem in itself), Highway to Hell and yes, Back n Black too. But Let there Be Rock is the highlight of the Bon Scott era, which was AC/DC at their peek.
If you just like good old fashioned Rock n Roll reminesant of Chuck Berry and other blues based originals, give this one a spin or any with Bon Scott, it is just simple straight ahead rock and roll, the likes of which has seldom been seen. It gives me a perma grin and shiver every time I listen to it.
The only thing that bothers me, is that the order of songs was changed from the original cassette tape I purchased and fell in love with.
