Due to the positive response to the downloads posted, I figured we could have a thread just to swap rarities and live shows.

Just a couple simple rules : try and keep it lossless (FLAC or WAV), but if all you got are high quality mp3s, bring what you have to the party...

BUT...

It cannot be anything currently available and in print from Sony/Epic - if you can stream it on Spotify or buy it new from AC/DC themselves, it's a no-go.

But stuff like Japanese pressings, vinyl rips of old LPs, live shows, demos/outtakes etc. would be great!

Yeah for sure, hoping folks hear have some stuff I don't have, definitely would love to have any outtakes or demos that circulate.
 
Great thread, thanks a lot! Router is running hot right now :)
 
Posted By: magpies1990_77Thanks for the shares.

I love hearing early Brian gigs if you’ve got any.

Have a couple from 1985 that are smokin', also may be able to scare up an '81 gig, maybe an '88 AUD.

Here, I split the first track of that Powerage and renamed the files so they're not stupid, burned it to CD with these four songs as filler, sounds great in the car :

This is great. Thanks heaps for sharing!

You're welcome :)

Copied from the other thread :

Hey, I'm not a badguy, and I do NOT hate Brian. We ALL love AC/DC, so maybe we (myself as well) should always remember that.

People and principles before personalities.

I have a LOT of good stuff to share, AC/DC and other bands, stuff other people may not have access to...

I'll keep it coming as long as everyone plays nice. But I really do need a favor...

I would really appreciate if everyone could maybe stop with all the slamming and hating on Jesse Fink. He's my friend, and he's also a huge AC/DC fan. We aren't trying to change anyone's mind, except maybe the perception that either one of his books is a "hit piece" and that he wrote what he wrote "just to sell books." No one hates Brian, least of all me or Jesse - we all can agree that Brian is a great guy and the perfect man for the job in light of the tragedy that precipitated his hiring. He was hired to do a job, and he sang the hell out of those tracks. God bless him. It's not a hit piece, I've read it twice now and he doesn't accuse ANYONE of stealing anything or being a thief, and the book he wrote, that's not the book he set out to write; he wrote what he found, which as a journalist, is simply his job.

If anyone wants to read it for themselves, and not give Jesse Fink a single dime, it's available for free rental on archive - you have to renew your rental every hour - it really is like a digital library - but you can at least read it and draw your own conclusions.


bonlasthighwayun0000fink


You don't have to like it, or even agree with it - hell, say that you don't agree all you want, it's your right! Some people don't like cilantro; I love the shit. I don't like flavored coffee unless it's fucking COFFEE flavored coffee, lol. We're all different.

My point is, shit got out of hand last week. None of us were acting like rational adults...Angus and Brian would have been LAUGHING at us if they had read that ridiculousness. And then after smoked a joint while watching some telly before bed, because they simply do not give a flying fuck what any of us think (facts)...but let's please curtail the personal attacks on people's character and motives. It's unbecoming of us all, and it takes us away from what our purpose here is - the connection that we have through the amazing music of one the best rock and roll bands the world will ever fucking know.

And that's why I'm taking my time to share - because I actually care. I care about the band, and how they're presented, how their music sounds.
I have rips of Australian and Japanese pressings, vinyl rips, all kinds of live shows out the ass. Lots of other bands too, some that I've taped (GNR and Billy Strings within the past 30 days), lots of Black Crowes, Blackberry Smoke, Rolling Stones (the bootleg of my recording was pressed to silver disc and sold by a company in Japan; a review I found was translated into saying that it was possibly the best audience recording of a Rolling Stones show ever...and they didn't even send me a copy :\), Zeppelin, Hendrix, White Stripes, Gov't Mule, GNR, etc.

let's be respectful, co-exist, get along and share the music that we love with each other along the way?

Damn sure it is! SUL tour was outstanding!

It was really the last tour with the band at full strength, when you think about it...

I love hearing early Brian gigs if you’ve got any.

Here's a gem from the Fly tour :

AC/DC
Frank Erwin Center, University of Texas
Austin, TX
October 11, 1985

Soundboard Recording

t-3C3w9nkljg


Disc 1:
1. Fly On The Wall
2. Back In Black
3. Shake Your Foundations
4. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
5. You Shook Me All Night Long
6. Sin City
7. Jailbreak
8. The Jack
9. Shoot To Thrill

Disc 2:
1. Highway To Hell
2. Sink The Pink
3. Whole Lotta Rosie
4. Let There Be Rock
5. Hell's Bells
6. TNT
7. For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)

I have another 1985 show on a hard drive somewhere that is not complete, it's a vinyl rip of some random bootleg but man it SMOKES - I sought out 1985 shows as that has been pointed out as when Mal's alcohol and cocaine use really began affecting his playing on some nights, but I haven't found any yet. The Let There Be Rock from this vinyl rip is an absolute corker, Mal and Simon slammed together like butt cheeks, it's glorious. I'll try and find it later this week. But for now, crank this one up and SINK THE PINK, bitches!! \m/

Well, it threatened Mal's place in AC/DC before he stopped.
It's part of why Mal attacked Angus in 1988 and had to go to rehab. They (per AC/DC protocol) whitewashed the shit out of it and the common story became "Mal knew he had progressed beyond simply liking the odd pint, that he had a problem, and like any rational human, stepped away from the band so he could get himself sorted out."

The reality is Malcom attacked Angus physically right before they were to start the North American tour in 1988. George and Angus replaced Malcolm with Stevie, and told Malcolm he could go to rehab and it could be temporary...or that it could possibly be permanent, if Malcolm so chose.

Shit got TENSE in the AC/DC camp during the 1980s, and I think Simon Wright is being stereotypically British about why he chose to leave AC/DC in 1989.

Man, did not know it got that bad. Must have been quite hard in the 80s with losing Bon, getting in Brian, going o a bit of a commercial slump, sacking your drummer over a fist fight and then having your rhythm guitarist leave too...

Man, did not know it got that bad. Must have been quite hard in the 80s with losing Bon, getting in Brian, going o a bit of a commercial slump, sacking your drummer over a fist fight and then having your rhythm guitarist leave too...

They were dealing with a lot of pressure, and a lot the pressure fell squarely on Mal - as the big brother, bandleader, and now main songwriter for a platinum-selling worldwide band, he had a lot to deal with, and there was no template for how to deal with international superstardom in the wake of a key band member's death, not just someone he cared about personally...but someone with whom he also had an amazing songwriting chemistry with...a LOT of pressure on Mal.

Phil and Mal had been having tensions as far back as the Back In Black tour; both were imbibing quite heavily, but Mal seemed to always keep things in check, at that point anyway...but not the Rudder, who was doing coke, 'ludes, heroin, and drinking like a FISH and trying to pull every groupie who would let him...

By the time they were making Flick, things had become more than "tense" between Mal and Phil. The declining commercial fortunes and Mal basically having to write the songs all on his own didn't help. Nobody liked the original vocals Brian cut for the album, which is why George Young came down to re-record them and produce Brian's vocals (Mutt Lange was missed - I still think they should've had Vanda and Young do the whole album back at Alberts) and that's when the "replace Brian" talk within the AC/DC camp began...they'd already fired Mutt, Ian, Lieber/Krebs and Mensch, so no one was safe. Add a bunch of cocaine, paranoia, and a rock star ego (Phil's) to that and it was a powder keg.

I can't even blame Mal, because I may have reacted similarly if I had been in his position and condition.

Phil was dating Mal's cousin-in-law or niece-in-law or something like that - she was related to Linda Young, and she was YOUNG, like 16-17 years old. And Phil had her out on a motorboat in the Bahamas, and was drunk and all coked up an there was an accident due to Phil's imprudence which injured the young girl, and that's when Mal had finally had enough of Phil's reckless endangerment of what they were working so hard to achieve. Mal took shit seriously, Phil didn't and Mal fired his ass on the spot.

From what I understand, Phil got mouthy with Mal (I won't say what about) and THAT'S when Mal decked him, and Phil was on a plane out of there within 3 hours.

So, the general "Phil left the band after Mal punched him" or "Phil was sacked over the fistfight" aren't quite accurate; Phil had already been fired when Mal punched him. The firing was for a long list of shit that culminated with Phil endangering a Young family member who he was intimately trusted with and also putting them all at a possible liability. The Youngs did not fuck around; AC/DC wasn't just THEIR livelihood - AC/DC provided jobs for their friends back in Sydney at Alberts, their brother and Harry Vanda had a [big] stake in that band, their road crew, their publicist...they have ALWAYS taken that shit seriously. Phil...not so much.

So again, can't say I blame Mal...and in fact, it's possible I couldn't have waited as long as they did, considering some of the stuff I've heard about his behavior on the Back In Black and FTATR tours...

Agreed. This version of shoot to thrill kicks ass! And great Malcolm sound here, that rawness was missed on Power Trip.

2003 was a small little addition with some nice deep cuts and everything after that was bonus. I mean I really loved Black Ice tour but it's another machine.

Got a four hour car drive ahead of me so thanks again for the perfect soundtrack ;)

And Phil had her out on a motorboat in the Bahamas, and was drunk and all coked up an there was an accident due to Phil's imprudence which injured the young girl, and that's when Mal had finally had enough of Phil's reckless endangerment of what they were working so hard to achieve. Mal took shit seriously, Phil didn't and Mal fired his ass on the spot.

From what I understand, Phil got mouthy with Mal (I won't say what about) and THAT'S when Mal decked him, and Phil was on a plane out of there within 3 hours.

So, the general "Phil left the band after Mal punched him" or "Phil was sacked over the fistfight" aren't quite accurate; Phil had already been fired when Mal punched him. The firing was for a long list of shit that culminated with Phil endangering a Young family member who he was intimately trusted with and also putting them all at a possible liability. The Youngs did not fuck around; AC/DC wasn't just THEIR livelihood - AC/DC provided jobs for their friends back in Sydney at Alberts, their brother and Harry Vanda had a [big] stake in that band, their road crew, their publicist...they have ALWAYS taken that shit seriously. Phil...not so much.

So again, can't say I blame Mal...and in fact, it's possible I couldn't have waited as long as they did, considering some of the stuff I've heard about his behavior on the Back In Black and FTATR tours...
Wow things most certainly got heated!

Man, did not know it got that bad. Must have been quite hard in the 80s with losing Bon, getting in Brian, going o a bit of a commercial slump, sacking your drummer over a fist fight and then having your rhythm guitarist leave too...

They were dealing with a lot of pressure, and a lot the pressure fell squarely on Mal - as the big brother, bandleader, and now main songwriter for a platinum-selling worldwide band, he had a lot to deal with, and there was no template for how to deal with international superstardom in the wake of a key band member's death, not just someone he cared about personally...but someone with whom he also had an amazing songwriting chemistry with...a LOT of pressure on Mal.

Phil and Mal had been having tensions as far back as the Back In Black tour; both were imbibing quite heavily, but Mal seemed to always keep things in check, at that point anyway...but not the Rudder, who was doing coke, 'ludes, heroin, and drinking like a FISH and trying to pull every groupie who would let him...

AC/DC - “The Soundboard Archive”

Thanks to the original uploaders!

For some time now, I have been making “The Soundboard Archive” compilations. My live-music collection had become so massive that I thought it pointless to keep "multiple-to-the-nth-degree" versions of the same songs, especially for "non-jam" bands: thus the genesis of this project of mine.

This has been my methodology:

I. Choose a trade-allowing artist (= "not on LL's / TTD's NAB lists") & collate all of the tracks from my “SBD” flac/shn files for said artist.

As of this writing, I've made compilations for the following, in chronological order:
01. Gillian Welch & David Rawlings
02. Marvin Gaye
03. Alison Krauss & Union Station
04. The Fall
05. Blind Melon
06. Rush
07. Eddie Money
08. Bob Marley & The Wailers
09. 10cc
10. Alabama Shakes
11. 10,000 Maniacs
12. 311
13. Doc Watson
14. AC/DC
15. Adele
16. Adrian Belew
17. Radiohead
18. The Alarm
19. Billy Joe Shaver
20. Led Zeppelin
21. Bottle Rockets

II. Listen to each track and choose what sounds to my ears to be the “best” version.

III. Rename each chosen track and add tags detailing date & venue.

IV. Compile “the winners” into a “The Soundboard Archive” collection – after ensuring (to the best of my ability) that NO included tracks have been officially released.

AC/DC
Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre
Irvine, CA
August 13, 1986

LINEAGE: SBD > unknown gen cassette > CDR > EAC: WAV > TLH: FLAC 8 > You.
SOUND RATING: 9/10

This is a soundboard tape from AC/DC’s “Who Made Who - North America Tour 1986.” No mic was turned towards the audience, so you will hardly notice any audience noise between the songs. It was one of the best sets ever including "She's got balls" which had not been played since 1977, also the last time to hear a live version of "Fly On The Wall.” Killer show, maybe the last known "Fly On The Wall"? (Definitely like it better live than on the album)

01. Who Made Who
02. Shot Down In Flames
03. Back In Black
04. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
05. Fly On The Wall
06. She's Got Balls
07. Jailbreak
08. The Jack
09. Shoot To Thrill
10. You Shook Me All Night Long
11. Whole Lotta Rosie
12. Let There Be Rock
13. Highway To Hell
14. TNT
15. Hells Bells
16. For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)

AC/DC
Old Waldorf
San Francisco, CA
September 3, 1977

Thanks to the original uploader!

“Source: Radio. Sound: Perfect.”

01. Intro
02. Live Wire
03. Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be
04. Up To My Neck In You
05. Kicked In The Teeth
06. The Jack (with "Gonorrhea" intro)
07. Whole Lotta Rosie
08. High Voltage
09. Baby Please Don't Go
10. Problem Child

I have this version and a bootleg LP of the Waldorf 1977 show, will compare to see which one has better quality, but most likely from the same source. If the vinyl has merit, I'll transfer it and up it here as well, so that the listener can decide.

Anyway, enjoy!
 
Whole Lotta Rosie on the Irvine Meadows recording from 1986 is actually the version from Austin 1985

Weird. Wonder if the original uploader knew that

Most likely not.
This recording has been in circulation on CD-R since late 90s with WLR from Austin 85
I guess the original recording omitted this title and some smartass has just placed it in from what he thought was the best and then it started being shared in all directions. It happens quick. I have never heared the original WLR from Irvine 86.

It's part of why Mal attacked Angus in 1988 and had to go to rehab. They (per AC/DC protocol) whitewashed the shit out of it and the common story became "Mal knew he had progressed beyond simply liking the odd pint, that he had a problem, and like any rational human, stepped away from the band so he could get himself sorted out."

The reality is Malcom attacked Angus physically right before they were to start the North American tour in 1988. George and Angus replaced Malcolm with Stevie, and told Malcolm he could go to rehab and it could be temporary...or that it could possibly be permanent, if Malcolm so chose.

Shit got TENSE in the AC/DC camp during the 1980s, and I think Simon Wright is being stereotypically British about why he chose to leave AC/DC in 1989.
Man, did not know it got that bad. Must have been quite hard in the 80s with losing Bon, getting in Brian, going o a bit of a commercial slump, sacking your drummer over a fist fight and then having your rhythm guitarist leave too...

They were dealing with a lot of pressure, and a lot the pressure fell squarely on Mal - as the big brother, bandleader, and now main songwriter for a platinum-selling worldwide band, he had a lot to deal with, and there was no template for how to deal with international superstardom in the wake of a key band member's death, not just someone he cared about personally...but someone with whom he also had an amazing songwriting chemistry with...a LOT of pressure on Mal.

Phil and Mal had been having tensions as far back as the Back In Black tour; both were imbibing quite heavily, but Mal seemed to always keep things in check, at that point anyway...but not the Rudder, who was doing coke, 'ludes, heroin, and drinking like a FISH and trying to pull every groupie who would let him...

By the time they were making Flick, things had become more than "tense" between Mal and Phil. The declining commercial fortunes and Mal basically having to write the songs all on his own didn't help. Nobody liked the original vocals Brian cut for the album, which is why George Young came down to re-record them and produce Brian's vocals (Mutt Lange was missed - I still think they should've had Vanda and Young do the whole album back at Alberts) and that's when the "replace Brian" talk within the AC/DC camp began...they'd already fired Mutt, Ian, Lieber/Krebs and Mensch, so no one was safe. Add a bunch of cocaine, paranoia, and a rock star ego (Phil's) to that and it was a powder keg.

I can't even blame Mal, because I may have reacted similarly if I had been in his position and condition.

Phil was dating Mal's cousin-in-law or niece-in-law or something like that - she was related to Linda Young, and she was YOUNG, like 16-17 years old. And Phil had her out on a motorboat in the Bahamas, and was drunk and all coked up an there was an accident due to Phil's imprudence which injured the young girl, and that's when Mal had finally had enough of Phil's reckless endangerment of what they were working so hard to achieve. Mal took shit seriously, Phil didn't and Mal fired his ass on the spot.

From what I understand, Phil got mouthy with Mal (I won't say what about) and THAT'S when Mal decked him, and Phil was on a plane out of there within 3 hours.

So, the general "Phil left the band after Mal punched him" or "Phil was sacked over the fistfight" aren't quite accurate; Phil had already been fired when Mal punched him. The firing was for a long list of shit that culminated with Phil endangering a Young family member who he was intimately trusted with and also putting them all at a possible liability. The Youngs did not fuck around; AC/DC wasn't just THEIR livelihood - AC/DC provided jobs for their friends back in Sydney at Alberts, their brother and Harry Vanda had a [big] stake in that band, their road crew, their publicist...they have ALWAYS taken that shit seriously. Phil...not so much.

So again, can't say I blame Mal...and in fact, it's possible I couldn't have waited as long as they did, considering some of the stuff I've heard about his behavior on the Back In Black and FTATR tours...

As of this writing, I've made compilations for the following, in chronological order:
01. Gillian Welch & David Rawlings
02. Marvin Gaye
03. Alison Krauss & Union Station
04. The Fall
05. Blind Melon
06. Rush
07. Eddie Money
08. Bob Marley & The Wailers
09. 10cc
10. Alabama Shakes
11. 10,000 Maniacs
12. 311
13. Doc Watson
14. AC/DC
15. Adele
16. Adrian Belew
17. Radiohead
18. The Alarm
19. Billy Joe Shaver
20. Led Zeppelin
21. Bottle Rockets

II. Listen to each track and choose what sounds to my ears to be the “best” version.

III. Rename each chosen track and add tags detailing date & venue.

IV. Compile “the winners” into a “The Soundboard Archive” collection – after ensuring (to the best of my ability) that NO included tracks have been officially released.

That's one hell of a compilation. Thank you so much for putting it together and sharing it with us.

No problem!

AC/DC
Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre
Irvine, CA
August 13, 1986

LINEAGE: SBD > unknown gen cassette > CDR > EAC: WAV > TLH: FLAC 8 > You.
SOUND RATING: 9/10

This is a soundboard tape from AC/DC’s “Who Made Who - North America Tour 1986.” No mic was turned towards the audience, so you will hardly notice any audience noise between the songs. It was one of the best sets ever including "She's got balls" which had not been played since 1977, also the last time to hear a live version of "Fly On The Wall.” Killer show, maybe the last known "Fly On The Wall"? (Definitely like it better live than on the album)

01. Who Made Who
02. Shot Down In Flames
03. Back In Black
04. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
05. Fly On The Wall
06. She's Got Balls
07. Jailbreak
08. The Jack
09. Shoot To Thrill
10. You Shook Me All Night Long
11. Whole Lotta Rosie
12. Let There Be Rock
13. Highway To Hell
14. TNT
15. Hells Bells
16. For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)

AC/DC
Old Waldorf
San Francisco, CA
September 3, 1977

Thanks to the original uploader!

“Source: Radio. Sound: Perfect.”

01. Intro
02. Live Wire
03. Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be
04. Up To My Neck In You
05. Kicked In The Teeth
06. The Jack (with "Gonorrhea" intro)
07. Whole Lotta Rosie
08. High Voltage
09. Baby Please Don't Go
10. Problem Child

I have this version and a bootleg LP of the Waldorf 1977 show, will compare to see which one has better quality, but most likely from the same source. If the vinyl has merit, I'll transfer it and up it here as well, so that the listener can decide.

Anyway, enjoy!

Thank you very much for sharing all of this with us! And also for all the information about things that happened behind the scenes with the band - all much appreciated!
 
I posted this yesterday in the members only section but it was removed(?) for some reason. Anyway...

In celebration of AC/DC's illustrious career of 50 years (and counting!) and their PWR/UP tour I thought, what the heck and share this real treasure with you guys!

Powerage Demos!

Tracklist:
What's Next To The Moon
Kicked In The Teeth
Down Payment Blues

Gone Shootin'

Download!


Enjoy and remember - NOT FOR SALE!

What's demo about that?
For me, these are the originals with poor sound quality that run 5% too fast.....
You need to get an appointment for an ENT physician! I mean, how can you not hear the differences to the official release and I'm not talking about the sound quality, which isn't bad either.

I'm sharing this gem after all those years, thinking if I should share it or not and this is the reaction I get.
Times have really changed and not always in a good way :confused:

There's hope that someone with good hearing cherish the demo songs.

I think you need that appointment, if you think those are demos
 
I think you two didn't take the time and listened intensely to the tracks.

So be it...
 
after decent inspection i come to the conclusion that those four tracks dirty eye shared (down payment blues, gone shootin', what's next to the moon, kicked in the teeth) are "just" the original lp mixes running a little bit too fast & sounding less balanced/clear, probably due to tthe transfer from vinyl to mp3.
 
Are the LP mixes any different than the ones on youtube, spotify etc.? For example, Bon's "Hah!" after the first verse on "Kicked in the Teeth" is missing on the demo. The ending of "Gone Shootin'" where Angus' part is also totally different than on the regular version or missing backing vocals on "What's next to the Moon".
That I can tell just off the top of my head and there are more differences.

I can't imagine those songs to be on the LP simply because they sound way too much "unpolished" for an official release and I'm not talking about the sound quality.

yes, these original lp mixes contain excactly those (and more) differences that you adress. and nope, these versions are not to be found on streaming platforms. only way to listen to them is on vinyl or digital lp transfer. the different of mixes of powerage songs has been widely discussed on this very forum and is well known to many a long term die hard fan. read more here

Thanks a bunch! At least you did a little research and proved that there are differences compared to the regular mixes. The other two users could of help but instead posted nonsense.
 
Nonsense?
I think you should take a step back, my friend!

I wrote that they are the originals, and that is the truth!
It is the first original mix to be released on vinyl.
Just because you only know the later CD mix and therefore think the originals are demos, you call my post nonsense?
I think you should think again about who wrote the nonsense......

Not sure where to post It, this just appeared in my YouTube feed. Cliff's bass seems to be a little loud in the mix, which is sweet

I have another 1985 show on a hard drive somewhere that is not complete, it's a vinyl rip of some random bootleg but man it SMOKES - I sought out 1985 shows as that has been pointed out as when Mal's alcohol and cocaine use really began affecting his playing on some nights, but I haven't found any yet. The Let There Be Rock from this vinyl rip is an absolute corker, Mal and Simon slammed together like butt cheeks, it's glorious. I'll try and find it later this week. But for now, crank this one up and SINK THE PINK, bitches!! \m/
Love that bootleg not gonna lie, and mal did coke, that's new to me??
Damn, that link is expired, any chance of a re up anyone?
