Editors’ Notes

The influence of producers Harry Vanda and George Young (older brother of Malcolm and Angus) on AC/DC's early Bon Scott years cannot be overstated. Their experience and enthusiasm (both were members of the influential late '60s Aussie greats The Easybeats) were integral to developing the band. That's why the return of Young and Vanda on 1988's Blow Up Your Video was a huge development. They help draw out the immediacy of tracks like "Heatseeker" and "That's the Way I Wanna Rock & Roll", the latter a throwback to Chuck Berry and Gene Vincent 45s that filled up the Young household. The mixture of raw, unfettered energy, cleanly produced guitar lines, and Brian Johnson's guttural growls and salacious odes to late night living show a band with nothing to prove and everything to give.

In its own way, it was a reaction against the pompous art rock and lumbering arena rock of the early '70s. AC/DC's rock was minimalist -- no matter how huge and bludgeoning their guitar chords were, there was a clear sense of space and restraint. Combined with Bon Scott's larynx-shredding vocals, the band spawned countless imitators over the next...
