EDITORS’ NOTES

For anyone who’s ever felt downtrodden, AC/DC provided Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. This 1976 album is a defiant one that kicks off with the ultimate teenage revenge fantasy—set to a dirty riff. From there on, it’s a wild night out with the boys from Down Under. Amidst all the clutter of boisterous FM radio in the late ’70s, AC/DC struck on something that was ferocious and pure, even in its puerility. The band could go from leering, locker room jokers to maniacal rock ’n’ rollers within the breadth of a song. This mixture, so evident on tracks like “Problem Child” to the ’50s rave-up of “There’s Gonna Be Some Rockin’” made AC/DC seem like a band you were never sure you wanted to party with or fear.

An album for the Ages!

After Bon Scott's demise, AC/DC put out their masterpiece Back In Black in his honour. I craved more of Bon Scott's work & sought out this LP, which at the time was only available as an Aussie import. It had a different cover & slightly different track listing. It also was one of the best buys I ever made! From the beginning crashing chords of it's title track, this record is solid as a brickhouse and every bit as fun as a trip to a circus. This is a gem of AC/Dc's work and I recommend it most highly!
