Product Description

Compilation of over 40 tracks from the pioneering heavy metal legends, featuring live and television appearances as well as a selection of promotional videos, covering the whole course of the band's history. Includes classic tracks such as 'Baby Please Don't Go', 'The Midnight Special' and 'Clipped'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Seeing AC/DC on television has always been a rare occurrence. But when they did grace the airwaves it was like a bolt of lightning--their energy and spirit transforming a typically staged video into something magical and larger-than-life.

Here, for the first time, is the definitive history of AC/DC on video. DVD 1 starts with their breakthrough performance of "Baby Please Don't Go" on Australian television, through early promo clips, their rare turn on 70s mainstay The Midnight Special and ends with the Spanish television performance taped just ten days before singer Bon Scott's death. DVD 2 traces the classic 80s and 90s videos and includes--for the first time on DVD--the home video titles "Fly On The Wall", "Who Made Who" and "Clipped".

Crown Jewels, well maybe and maybe not - was there no recording of Shoot to Thrill anywhere? That would have been the icing on the cake for me personally but all in all some fantastic videos of a great band. Bon Scott as Heidi with a grinning juvenile Angus was like something out of a Hunter S Thompson book - certainly one girl you wouldn't want to take home to the parents! What a shame as I believe he had the charisma, whilst Brian has the voice. (Hint to get the same effect down 30 pints of Newcastle Brown and smoke 50 fags in a row. The next morning you'll have a voice like Brians!)
It is a great collection of some great songs and with some beers and friends makes a great couple of hours of entertainment. It's for the already converted though and not for everyone. However, one thing shines through them all, the entertainment, no spandex clad, cucumber shoved down your tights, stuff here, just a man dressed up as a schoolboy.........erm perhaps best not to analyze that. I am still waiting for a college to offer a degree in ACDC's music!

This is a must have dvd for any fan of acdc , especially someone like myself who is at the younger scale to acdc .
basicallyas most will by now realise its a 2-disc dvd set . disc 1 the bon scott years and disc 2 brian johnson years . first thing that struck me was the price from amazon !!! you would expect to pay twice this price in any high st store , excellant value for money . whilst most hardcore acdc fans will have seen a lot of the footage , for the price alone it makes another addition to your collection , at a very affordable price .
The quality of the case for the set is similar to the new re-mastered cd"s which includes a 24 pages booklet with many pics . allthough i would have preferred a stronger case than the flimsy one . without spoiling it before you see it , it basically includes all the classics plus a few rare appearences . and also all the past line-ups .
overall a great value for money 2-disc set , with the only down side being the mis-leading description about tv appearences , which i was expecting interviews and a bit of chat from the guys , which is even rarer than the videos . well worth the money though ;-)

It's difficult to explain to the uninitiated exactly how much you NEED to own this DVD. Most people seem to view AC/DC as all that's bad about heavy rock, yet they are so badly missing the point it's untrue.
This is the simplest form of rock imaginable (barring the Ramones) and yet it is done to such great effect, with their own style and panache that you cannot fail to be drawn into their world.
Each track rolls into the next with a killer opening riff, the growl of Bon Scott or Brian Johnson and then chugs it's way through to a fantastic chorus. OK, it's not Radiohead or Pink Floyd, but if you want to party you wouldn't be sticking one of their DVD's on.
No, instead, this Christmas treat the family to some High Voltage Rock n roll. You'll find your miserablist friends may scarper to the other room for a dose of Andy Williams, but the throng that remain will have broad smiles on their faces, quickly emptying glasses and a sudden appearance of air guitar.
For those about to rock....we salute you!

Format: DVD
I can`t praise this DVD highly enough. AC/DC have really dug deep into the vaults to come up with enough to keep even the staunchest fans happy while showing newcomers what all the fuss is about. For years the only Bon Scott visuals were contained in the out-of-sync and occasionally out-of-tune "Let there be rock" film and it is great to know that so much footage of the band with Bon exists. His succesor Brian Johnstone is also fantastic and all eras of the band (up until 1990) are comprehensively documented.
The sound (stereo 2:0) isn`t much to write about but the pictures are a revelation. Some of this stuff was recorded for Australian TV 30 years ago, although you could never tell. "Baby, please don`t go" from `75 with Bon dressed up as a cigarette smoking schoolgirl is worth buying this set for on it`s own. All in all there are forty songs, twenty each from the Bon and Brian years respectively. Every album gets at least two songs featured so there is something for everybody. From the lip-synced early TV performances of "TNT and "Dog eat dog" to the massively expensive "Mad max" styled promo videos for "Who made who" and "Thunderstruck", the band have served up a feast to sate the fans appetite in what has been a pretty lean time for fresh AC/DC product.
I have no hestation in recommending this DVD to anyone, whether they are a big fan of AC/DC or not. This is up there with "Led Zeppelin DVD" in terms of seeing a part of rock history that you thought you`d never see.
