3.0 out of 5 stars Adding Fuel to the Fire, 20 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Bonfire (Audio CD)
Issued as a tribute to the late, great Bon Scott - Bonfire is a mixed bag of rare live performances, and studio out takes featuring Bon. Overall, i'd say, its for collectors and stalwarts only.

Live at Atlantic Studios is a much sought after promotional recording which was made to push the band in the early days (c1977) in America. It features the High Voltage line up with Mark Evans on bass, and is a raw no frills performance typical of the band at that time.

Live in Paris (1979/80) is one of Bon's last live recordings and is essentially the soundtrack for the Let There Be Rock movie. Made at the tail end of the Highway to Hell tour its a blistering performance only marred by the breakdown of Angus's guitar during Whole Lotta Rosie.

Volts is the outtakes disc and is interesting more than enthralling. Mostly it is early unfinished versions of the Highway to Hell sessions, and is definately not for casual fans of the band. Finally you get a copy of Back in Black thrown in as i suppose it was dedicated to Bon, although it is widely reported he supposedly had no real involvement in the songs that appeared on BIB. To finish off the package there is a guitar pick, tattoo, poster, key chain, and photo booklet with some of Bon's hand written lyrics.

I gave it three stars as I felt it lacked substance. It feels a bit makeshift, and not all that great value for money, given BIB and the LTBR sound track are already available. Some of the tracks on Volts are not that rare ie the last two or three. Adding BIB takes away some of the achievements Bon made with the band, and shouldn't be included here even if it was dedicated to him.
