Vinyl store: “High Voltage” by AC/DC


Metal masters from Australia set a standard for heavy music with this classic debut. From this first recording the band set a precedent for blues-based hard rock and heavy metal. Ironically the group has popularly insisted that their music is simply rock ‘n’ roll. Not ones to get bogged down in subgenres, the members of AC/DC plow ahead to tell their rock ‘n’ roll story.

Fans of heavy metal and hard rock need this album (found here on deluxe, remastered compact disc). It is more than just music. A booklet is included – – always a must-have for the serious fan.

All the production values and memorabilia in the world cannot save a “bad” album. Fortunately that is not an issue here. One listen to the tracks  on “High Voltage” and those not already convinced will learn why AC/DC hold the place they do among classic rock bands.

This recording is from the era that included late singer Bon Scott. His screeching, powerhouse vocals sound just right over the heavy, bluesy tunes. Songs like “It’s A Long Way to the Top,” “Jack,” and “TNT” paint a picture of a gritty rock ‘n’ roll existence, and rock fans have been here for it since 1975.

For the low, incredibly low, really, price of $9.99, this version of “High Voltage” shouldn’t be missed. Get it today. Go here for more information and to order:
