Released for the American fans that were still paying attention, '74 Jailbreak was a short collection (only 24 minutes) of tracks taken from two Australia-only releases. "Jailbreak" had already appeared on the Australian version of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, while the other ones were taken from High Voltage (1975). As for the quality of the songs, it's there! While not as heavy as the grinding crunch of Let There Be Rock or Powerage , the songs show a more blues-oriented version of the band, even more so than the American version of High Voltage (which leads me to presume the songs gathered here were taken from the band's early stages when they were still experimenting and trying to make sense of their own brilliant style). The undisputed highlight here is the title track, a delicious riff-rocker that has all of the Scott-era swagger and a bluesy core that was absent from the next line-up's releases. Other proof of the much more roots-oriented music of the band are the frantic boogie-rock of "Show Business" (with lots of nice soloing by an Angus, who was only 15 at the time) and Joe Williams' classic "Baby Please Don't Go" that's clearly based on the version of Ted Nugent's Amboy Dukes, and this implies it's fast `n nasty.

"You Ain't Got a Hold on Me" and "Soul Stripper" are less impressive, the first one being a decent but unremarkable laidback blues-rocker, while the second one is a lengthy dirge that nevertheless contains some fiery guitar playin' and some rare percussion touches. So, '74 Jailbreak is obviously a must for any self-respecting fan, and we all know that a self-respecting AC/DC-fan is also a Bon Scott-fan, so there you go. I still haven't found an answer as to why it only contains five songs - for chrissakes! - and still costs as much as any other of their releases.

The five songs here are culled from Aussie imports of High Voltage, TNT, and Dirty Deeds. Whilst I own this being a completist, and you should too, I would recommend getting the imported versions of the above as their is more 'rare' material to be had. Love Song, RIP and School Days. All of which would of happily sat on this release along with Cold Hearted Man (european Powerage (vinyl version)) and Crabsody In Blue (Aussie Let There Be Rock)making it more 'complete'. If the imports are out of reach then get this as it's the only place you will find them on a UK release. The tracks are just brilliant if a little different due to their '70s origin but they sure do rock. Essential stuff.

This album was released to celebrate ten years of ac/dc, and was sandwhiched in-between the hugely underrated flick of the switch and fly on the wall. These are five songs taken from the first two austrailian albums high voltage and dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
1. Jailbreak - this song is a classic and was played at rock in rio in 1985, one of bons best ever performances - 10/10
2. You aint got a hold on me - another great song, cannot find fault with it, ac/dc at there best - 9/10
3. Show business - what a rif, what a chorus - 10/10
4. Soul striper - one of my favourire dc tracks - 10/10
5. Baby please don't go - a rare dc cover, this was the first single they ever released, another classic - 10/10.
Although th
ere are only five songs on this album it is well worth buying, as it contains five truly great songs.

74 Jailbreak was basically released in order to release the already famous song, "Jailbreak" and they put 4 rare AC/DC songs on it for extra material for the fans.
The song Jailbreak is one of AC/DC's best songs, without a doubt, everything about it is good, Angus' guitar work, and Bon's vocals of course.
The rest of the music is good. You Aint Got A Hold On Me is a very good song, Show Business and Soul Stripper are also good.
However, the other classic on this album is AC/DC's cover of Baby Please Don't Go, the best version out there.
This CD can't be given 5 stars for 1 excellent song and 4 good songs, so it has to be given 4. However it still is a necessity for any ROCK fans!

I don`t understand why Jailbreak was never originally released in the UK? It easily fits into the great canon of classic AC/DC songs. I love Brian Johnson and think he was absolutely the perfect replacement but Bon Scot had a real earthiness to his lyrics that was easy to relate too. Like other reviewers here this left me a little sad and nostalgic but I`ll just remind you of the lyrics from Rock and Roll aint noise pollution," he`ll always be with us, he`s never gonna die!"

Released in 1984 to give an airing to tracks that were not available outside Australia at the time. It only consists of five tracks so you don't get the greatest value for money. But what you do get it a real AC/DC classic in the form of 'Jailbreak' and four other good but not great songs, the pick of the bunch being 'Show Business'. As a collection of songs, if compared to the rest of the Bon Scott era it is probably their weakest release, but it is still a pleasurable listen and definitely worth having in your collection.
