This is one of the "real" (as in Bon Scott) AC/DC's best. The price is justified alone for the wonderful blues of Ride On, surely the band's finest musical moment. Big Balls and Ain't No Fun just add to the pleasure of a great Rock'n'Roll experience; just a shame that they were never the same after Bon Scott left us. By the way why doesn't "Crabsody in Blue" appear on the CD versions of "Let There Be Rock"?

I care not for those who claim this album is flawed. I have every AC/DC release, have seen them live numerous times, and have loved them for close to 20 odd years. I can say without a shadow of a doubt "Dirty Deeds" is my favorite. I don't care that it's purile (if you listen to AC/DC at all this is something you don't need to be too bothered about), I don't care that it's rough (in fact it more that adds to it's charm), I don't care that it's not quite as good as the Aussie version (R.I.P. is criminally absent on this release). This is the best, bar non, AC/DC album to date. The title track alone is worth the purchase price.

My favourite album of the early Bon Scott ACDC years.

I started to type which tracks were the stand outs but theres not a weak track on this album.
Favourites are Love at first feel, Ride on and Aint no fun...

A must for any ACDC fans collection

Well, I've always considered DC to be the best rock band ever. I have had a number of albums, and enjoyed them live but for some reason I missed this album.
BUY IT.
Ok it is 'raw' - none of the clean produced Back in Black (still one of my favourites) but it is fantastic.
Dry, powerful and oozing quality - Bon at his best - as good as his fantastic Highway to Hell.
The band play in an 'older' rock and roll style but the DC drive is there. Angus may not shine through as he does later but that lets the tracks be balanced.
Above all, this just shows what a quality act AC-DC is and is a fitting tribute to Bon Scott - I hope he is down there, beer in one hand, women in another with this playing at full blast in the background.
I am not worthy...

Listen to the opening riff to Dirty Deeds alone before the vocal comes in; most guitar players would find it pretty simple to play. But forget the technique and just listen to the sound - to my ears it immediately says 'threat, menace, testosterone'. It doesn't need any words to make its message clear. The simplicity of the riff grabs its theme instantly - and frankly no jazz guitar player, for example, could create it.

And that is the difference between the very best riff merchants like AC/DC and the millions of also rans who would die to get anything near theirs (think Crue, Ratt, Twisted etc.,).

Bon Scott is one of those unique rock singers (like Freddie, Ozzy, and Morrison) who seems to be able to embody the songs. You feel as if he is singing to you directly from within his world. Always conflating sex with love (Love at first feel) he basks in his sexual potency and revels in demoniacal desire ('I lead a life of crime...'). Bon's world view is one in which everybody is corrupt, especially those offering love, frequently presenting himself as a gleeful sinner ('for a fee, I'm happy to be, your back door man').

Of course these points cover the entire Bon Scott era and Dirty Deeds is simply another essential classic among many.

While Angus is the star guitar player and Phil, Mark and Malcolm deliver the killer backing, Bon is my real idol in AC/DC. As a kid he was like a big brother and with lyrics like those in Ain't No Fun (waiting 'round to be a millionaire) he really identifies with you.

Songs like Dirty Deeds and the finger licking Squealer just ooze dirty sleaze.

This is a decent album by AC/DC, the second to receive an international release- though not in the states, more on that later - but it is also, in my opinion, the weakest Album featuring Bon Scott.

The reason this album is so well know, disproportionately so against others in the catalogue, is that the label initially refused to release this album in the USA. They only did so as a cash in after BIB became such a monster hit, as a result it was snapped up by fans wanting more. This has led to this album being more revered than many of their better records.

Now, all this said, it is absolutely not a bad album. There are some cracking tracks on this and I do think anyone who has a decent interest in AC/DC need to snap this one up, but not as one of the first purchases.

Track by track:

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap - Rightly considered a classic. Dark, catchy, dangerous and tongue-in-cheek. (10)

Love at First Feel - Solidly okay track, Stripped down bluesy rock (7)

Big Balls - Your reaction to this song depends n your own viewpoint. If you can just let yourself go with the single-entendre nonsense and campery, it's a good chuckle of a track. If not, its base humour at its worst. I should hate it, but I don't. (7)

Rocker - It does what it says on the tin. A rock n' roll song about being a rocker. Dumb, fun and a good 'un. (8)

Problem Child - About as close to social commentary as AC/DC ever got - thankfully! Bon Scott has a great time on this, warning people to stay away cause he's so dangerous. (7)

There's Gonna Be Some Rockin' - More Status Quo than AC/DC in my opinion. It's fine but unspectacular.
