    A Highlight of Backtracks and Iron Man 2.

    "Dun Duh Dun Da"

    "Dun Nuh Dun Nuh"

    Should've been on the International Powerage....

    One of my all-time favorites. Defines what a "cool" song is lyrically.

    "No one knew, where he came from."

    For me this is an absolute highlight of Bon's career and a pivotal track on Powerage. I believe that Bon's solo record would have been along similar lines. Content wise.

    Absolutely. And believe it or not, I think Ballbreaker-era Brian could have done a mean cover of this. We'll never know though...

    But nonetheless, this is one of those definitive Bon songs. Awesome track.

    I don't wanna speculate on Bon's solo record though, it just seems weird to me.

    I could totally hear that.

    His voice at that time had just enough "roughness" and power.

    INCREDIBLE SONG!!! I don't know why they released it in some Powerage versions since it was recorded in 1976, when Mark Evans was still the bass player. Great song anyway

    BTW: Who gets to pick the song of the day? I'd like to do it sometime

    I'd prefer this stay to Bon. I see him trying to have the crowd sing along to it with his hands waving around.

    I think only Mods can. Though if you slip word to Nitro for a suggestion, he'll probably do it.

    Bonlives, and as you said it appears nitro, aswell... who else?
  5.  
    Click on a user's name,it'll say Mod if they are one.

    and yeah,

    I'll probably do it if you ask.As long as it's not a song we've already did.

    ...also, it is perfect Bon material.
  6.  
    There's no way this song was recorded two years earlier than the rest of Powerage, I don't care what it says in the liner notes of Iron Man 2. It fits in with the rest of the Powerage songs in every single way possible.
  7.  
    Totally agree^^

    NP used to do them sometimes too... *Wipes tear from eye* ... I think I miss him already...

    WRONG! He's just watching the conversation, waiting for his chance to return and steal the spotlight!

    I don't buy the 'recorded two years earlier' story. This track sounds nothing like 'Carry Me Home' which was recorded during the '76 sessions I believe.
  13.  
    Yeah Cold Hearted Man has Powerage written all over it.
  14.  
    word
  15.  
    It also sounds nothing like Love At First Feel which was recorded during that '76 session as well.

    Great song! Great album (European Powerage)...

    Carry Me Home sounds nothing like LAAF, but no one argues that one
  18.  
    ^ LOL, are you kidding me? The guitar tone is exactly the same on those songs!

    Carry Me Home is amazing.

    I was so glad to see / hear this song on a CD it is an absolute unreconstructed classic. And absolutely apt for Mr Stark, How many years did we have to wait for an official release of this one.
  24.  
    It was on the Euro Powerage back in '78,it wasn't released in the States Officially until 2009 on the Backtracks Boxset,then on Iron Man 2 in 2010.

    I really wonder where the story that CHM was recorded in '76 comes from? Why doesn't anyone who knows Angus personally ask him?? Neither Wall (p. 190) nor Engleheart and Durieux (p. 162) mentions it being recorded at Vineyard. Durieux however strangely enough states that it's from the Vineyard sessions on his Powerage page: http://ac-dc.net/dis... One theory is they did an early version of CHM in '76 and did it again in '78.
  26.  
    To my ears CHM sounds straight out of the LTBR sessions.

    Agree Carry me Home Has More fuzz on the guitars, sounds more like a LTBR out take. Wonder what else was recorded at the vine yard sessions, would love to make it an ep to put on my ipod

    Carry Me Home
    Love At First Feel
    Dirty Eyes
    Cold Hearted Man (at least it's always credited to that session)
  27.  
    Strange. Love At First Feel is credited as having been recorded at Vineyard on the label of the single, whereas CHM does actually state recorded at Alberts Studios.
    My ears still tell me CHM is from the LTBR sessions.

    It seems impossible to find the source for the info about the songs recorded at The Vineyard sessions. So far the only song confirmed is LAFF, since it's credited on the label. It seems likely that DE and CMH were recorded at the same time - but it's not confirmed. Regarding CHM I find it quite strange that a song from that session would pop up on Powerage, but who knows?

    well they used a promo pic from 78 for the Highway cover in 79, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if they held onto a song from 76 for a 78 release....

    Maybe they wanted min. 9 tracks for the Powerage release, they only had 8 at that time and so they took "CHM" from the vineyard sessions ?

    "Love at first feel" was used for the int. DDDDC release (and was also released as single in january 1977 in australia)
    "Carry me home" was used as B-Side for the "Dog eat dog" single
    "Dirty eyes" was rewritten and official released as "Whole lotta rosie"

    So, "Cold hearted man" was the only song which wasn't released from that session and the took it to fill the record.

    Then the record company wanted a "single" and the boys recorded "Rock 'n' Roll damnation" (after the first LP releases of Powerage in the UK).On further releases they kicked "CHM" & placed RNRD on the record....

    But i agree, CHM sound really like it could be from the Powerage sessions (maybe only re-recorded for PA).
    Can someone ask Mark Evans please :-) Any nephew's of him here? ;-)

    CHM is one of Malcolm’s masterpiece. Incredible grove and one of the first where his Gretsch reaches his beast sound.
