Fantastic live release that holds two distinctions in my collection: it’s the first live album I ever bought and it’s also the first AC/DC album I ever bought (picked it up at Target of all places too!).

There’s always going to be a special place in my heart for this album. It’s one of the first big albums in my life. One of the first that I played constantly from beginning to end, with many of those plays coming during lunch period at high school and on the walk home from school. For a time, it catapulted AC/DC towards the top of my favorite bands list.

I ended up burning myself out on the band and the album (and the AC/DC albums that this one inspired me to pick up). Despite being way too familiar with the album now, it’s still a classic live release that every AC/DC fan should own, in my opinion.

There is a two disc version (featuring 23 tracks) that was released a month after this version was. I had bought the album in the late 90s, but I wasn’t aware of the two disc edition and was pretty ticked off when I found out about it. I would’ve rather held out for that version!

The album was recorded during the 1990-1991 The Razor’s Edge tour at various locales.

Highlights: “Thunderstruck”, “Who Made Who”, “Moneytalks”, “Hells Bells”, “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”, “Whole Lotta Rosie”, “You Shook Me All Night Long”, “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)”
