If you play it loud enough you will be physically transported to a live AC/DC gig, I tried it and it worked. Shoulda got out of the bath first though :)
It must be at least 15 years since I last heard If you Want Blood.. and listening to it now reminds me why it once was, and has become once again, my favourite live album of all time. At the moment I am unable to think of any other that begins with a more thrilling live intro than the crowd frenzy leading up to the first song; Riff Raff introduces itself reasonably politely, before punching you right in the head.
The pace from there is set for the next few tracks, then the audience are chanting 'Angus Angus...' and I remember Rosie! Apparently there was a whole lotta her, and this is a whole lotta sweaty, sexy, headbanging rock music.
Though I love all the tracks here, the other high point for me has got to be Let There Be Rock; the history of rock music according to the late Bon Scott. A man who started a tour sounding like he had just finished one.
The legendary guitar performance of Angus Young, along with his brother Malcolm, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd make old school AC/DC sound raw, sleezy and just so damned exciting!
A faultless classic rock album, having said that if I really had to find a fault it would have to be the CD single style cardboard sleeve. But don't let that put you off, this album...well it Rocks!
