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.
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.

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.
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!!!!!
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!
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.
