Editors’ Notes

For a band whose catalog is riddled with wry wit and juvenilia, AC/DC was notoriously no-nonsense when it came to studio time. That's what makes this triple-album-length set of rarities and live cuts so rewarding. First off you get a handful of tracks that were only on the Australian versions of the early albums or on B-sides of early singles. That means you get the Scottish ballad "Fling Thing" (an instrumental ripper that gets played only when the band performs in Glasgow). Also, if you don't believe AC/DC could ever be sentimental then you haven't heard "Love Song." The live material is culled from over three decades of performing, catching them cranking out an incendiary "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" at home in Austrlaia in 1977 all the way through to a faith-restoring version of "Safe in New York City" taken from a show in Phoenix, Arizona in 2000.

Rare early AC/DC "Crabsody in Blue" and "R.I.P. (Rock in Peace)

"Crabsody in Blue" is a forgotten AC/DC gem. It appeared on the Australian version of "Let There Be Rock." “Crabsody in Blue” was banned outside of Australia because of the reference to the STD "crabs." Since track listings from Australian versions of early AC/DC albums differed from international releases, some songs were never released. One of those is”R.I.P. (Rock in Peace)”. It was released on the Australian "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap." Bon Scott is in rare form in both of these classic AC/DC blues rockers.

AC/DC HISTORY

This whole set was put together of songs acdc left out on the international albums. The songs you find here are the ones left out on Australian album, in my opinion, some of the best are in here not to mention some of the best live performances AC/DC has ever had, if you don't care for the memorabilia of the box set I would strongly downloading the whole set of backtracks!!!! And Rock In Peace :)

AC/DC

The awesome collection of the great band in history.

Biography

Formed: 1973 in Sydney, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

AC/DC's mammoth power chord roar became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the '70s, and is now one of the defining sounds of rock and metal. 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...
