Product Description

Introducing the first ever recordings by Angus and Malcolm Young of AC/DC fame!

The legendary album by the Marcus Hook Roll Band Tales Of Old Grand-Daddy is being re-issued with 2 previously unreleased tracks and 3 rarities.

The album is tough, perfectly structured and intelligent. A very convincing political and social sentiment runs through many of the songs, as does a strong soul/funk influence. And featuring the first recordings of Angus and Malcolm Young it’s a real must for AC/DC fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars tales of vintage old grandaddy 11 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
Yes its not ac/dc even though the two young brothers of said band appear on the record with their elder brother George and Harry Vanda of the easy beats fame, that alone shoudn't detract from the quality the album has, Tracks like " Quick Reaction" does have that Highway To Hell chorus to it whilst "People And The Power" has a bluesy Hippy Protest vibe to it Whilst the quirky if amusing "Ape Man" induced me to a few giggles and the song "Watch her do it now" well leave it to your own Imagination as what the song is all about. Now as previously mentioned in a magazine the album was made under a haze of alcohol so its hard to tell wether malcolm or angus laid down their trademark guitars on each of the tracks but its got The Easybeats quality feel to it which means atleast its a lost album of sorts that's deserves a place on the top shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 50's feel to the sound. 10 July 2014

I absolutely love this. Bought it on the recommendation of the 'Classic rock magazine' and also because it has Malcolm and Angus young playing on it. This is just a get down and have a good time feel to it , you cant help but love it. The vocals are split between Harry Vanda and George young and it is just pure rock n roll and i recommend it to anyone who just wants a cd that is unspoilt by technology in music but can take you back to the 50's with its music.

4.0 out of 5 stars but still pretty decent early rock 15 Oct 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
A "Must Have" for every AC/DC collector. This is where it all started for Malcolm and Angus.
Not much AC/DC rhythm to br found on this record, but still pretty decent early rock

I bought this as a big fan of AC/DC out of curiosity to hear Angus & Malcolm in their pre-AC/DC days. The description of "featuring the first recordings of Angus and Malcolm Young it’s a real must for AC/DC fans" suckered me in.

However this is about as far from AC/DC as you can get and is not a "real must" for Angus & Malcolm fans at all. This is for fans of Vanda & Young and their songs. Not that this is "bad" but it is not my cup of tea at all (I am mostly a hard rock fan). The booklet is nice, some great photos and interesting historical storytelling in there, but listening to it is a chore.
