    Not dubbed off copies, not bootlegs, not stealing your brother's Highway To Hell LP for a sneaky listen.... What was the first AC/DC album that you owned? It could be that you got it as a present, or you bought it yourself, but what was the first DC album that you could cherish and call your own?

    AC/DC Double Live cassette for me...

    Christmas 1980. Id just turned 11 and I got BIB in vinyl from my older bro. cause he was fed up of me nicking his copy of IYWB. Played it so much it got scratched to shit. Replaced it and did the same to the second copy. Still got the first copy in my collection, complete with rather dog eared sleeve. Sentimental reasons I guess.

    BIB. Obvious I know, but about 2 years ago I just had to have it after I got hooked on my uncle's copies of SUL, FTATR, TRE, FOTS, and FOTW.

    Mine was a triple header its was High Voltage (International version with the cartoon of Bon and Angus on the front) and Highway to Hell and the 12" of For Those About To Rock with the finest version IMO of LTBR on the B side which has just surfaced on the backtracks live CD. Happy days

    Bugger me Carlos. You must be older than me! Out of interest, do you have "Super Wide Wheels" on your motor?

    Highway To Hell on vinyl second hand from a beautiful record shop with staff that really knew their music, where you could trade in old copies of albums you were done with and others could buy them at a cheap price.  Cost me about £2 I think.  Still have it, still love it.  Went on to buy the entire back catalogue at that time, must have been about '81/'82 from that record shop most of it on the original vinyl.  Spent hours and hours just rifling through the racks.  Happy days.  All gone now of course.  And it was all fields round here then :)

    Blow Up Your Video I think. Funny 'cos I never listened to it much after discovering Bon era albums.

    Carlos. Cant remember the name, do remember the ad with the free kick where the guy in the wall turns his back and the swerve shot rebounds off the crossbar. They were priceless ads. But CFSWW was def the best.

    Ballbreaker, when it came out in 95. By the time I bought it, I had already listened to all their albums though. I purchased them all later.

    Black Ice as a matter of fact. Everyone slags it off but I love the shit out of it, probably because it was my first 'DC album.

    I bought Highway to Hell and Flick of the switch on cassette at the same time, back in about 1990/1991. Bought them new from a local Pamida (if anyone remembers that chain of stores).

    I love this topic, it's great to remember that excitement when you owned your first DC album.

    And having met Carlos, I can say that he doesn't look a day older than 30, so I'm not sure he's telling the truth......

    I can remember opening High Voltage (Int Ed) for one Christmas and just wishing everyone would go home so I could stick it on the stereo :)  Still got the rush when Black Ice came out, just listened over and over again. Bliss.

    With you there Jem. I was real excited, I do think all the positive reviews and the lenghty gap from SUL may have played its part mind, but I felt like that when any other  AC/DC album was released. Got BI and played it over and over for 2 days, on computer, i-pod, car stereo. That inspired me to go off and re-listen to the back catalogue again. Thats what I love about the band. Lets say we do a thread on LTBR. I go off and listen to LTBR, or in this case I watched the video in Paris, and whallop Im off on an AC/DC trip listening to all the Bon era stuff. With other bands I may be into their stuff for a week or 2 here and there, for example listened to the new Megadeth album when it came out but it didnt inspire me to listen to any of their other stuff, but AC/DC is always there for me because its so diverse and yet  always so familiar be it HV, FOTS, BI, whatever, if that makes sense.

    Mine was the High Voltage remaster. Heard IALWTTT on the radio and it just hit me, I gotta get the album its on. It broke my heart when I later found out it was an international release and not the true first album. My favorite DC song for quite a while was Rock n Roll Singer. Still one of my favorites. After that first album, I had gotten all the other DC albums in the span of about 6 months. I figured I'd just stop getting the albums when I found one I didnt like. So, I ended up getting them all lol!


    Little side note for ya too. When I first bought BUYV I thought it sucked. Opinions can change, haha! I think getting the remastered version later really helped. It was just louder.

    As I can recall my first 'DC record was the international version of High Voltage in '76 about a couple weeks after it came out. Later that year I would eventually get import's of High Voltage (Oz version) and T.N.T. and an import copy of Dirty Deeds from Oz around new years.

    My first purchase was an Indonesian (official) copy of The Razors Edge on cassette, which I bought while in Bali. Still cherish it to this day.


    My next purchase was AC/DC Live on double cassette. Now, I'm going to be slaughtered for saying this, but I high-speed dubbed it and then took it back to the record shop because I hated all the cheering. I'd never experienced AC/DC "live" before, and didn't really expect what I got. I still have the dubbed tapes, but I regret to this day taking the cassettes back. I blame puberty :)

    High Voltage


     


    I was confused at the signer

  10.  
    the first 4 or so that I got were Brian albums (just by coincidence), and by the time I bought WMW, I was as confused as fuck. Who the hell is this dude singing Ride On?

    Who Made Who. Ahhhh yes.


    "This Machine Just Called Me An Asshole!


    Not the best version you'll ever hear, but a treat none the less. I like to think Brian mentions Bon at the start by way of aknowledgement rather than because he thinks the crowd might not realise. But you never know.

    Ride On was a bit of a shock to me when I first heard it. Not at all what I expected from the band.

    As much as I love Brian, he absolutely murdered Ride On :(
  12.  
    First album, Powerage, bought in Firenze Italy at siesta time. I think the year was 1982.

    Brian actually did quite well with Ride On, especially considering its not really his style and hes never performed it before. Not his best Bon tribute, but a very admirable effort. It took alot of balls to sing that song.

  13.  

    Gonna get blown up for this, But i think Night Prowler wouldve went down better, and thats probably what half the fans thought..

    • AC/DC rock music: GoZone
    • Nov 19th 2009
     

    yes, Night Prowler needs to be played live

    I too would love Night Prowler, but that song hinges on the backing vocals being strong, so maybe best left alone...
