The Endless Note

AC/DC

ac-dc

There are unconfirmed reports that AC/DC are to release a major box set later this year.

These reports suggest this will come in a box shaped as an amplifier – that actually works. (Sounds somewhat expensive to me!!!!!!)

It will contain three CDs, two DVDs and a vinyl album. There will be a CD of studio rarities, two CDs featuring live rarities, a DVD disc of Family Jewels Part 3 (1992-2009) and a DVD disc featuring a show from 2003 in Circus Krone, Germany. The vinyl album will have all the studio rarities.

In addition, there will be a 164-page book, plus loads of extras, such as three black-and-white lithographs of unpublished photos of the band in Alberts Studio in 1977, a flyer for the 1976 Lock Up Your Daughters UK tour and a poster from the 1977 European Let There Be Rock Tour.

This set will only be sold through the band’s official website: www.acdcrocks.com

There are also plans for a three-disc box version called Best Of The Box Set, which will have the studio rarities CD, one CD of live rarities and the Family Jewels Part 3 DVD.

………………and to think they replaced the late Bon Scott with a guy from Geordie

  2. The “Geordie” was just bait!

    Shame though that they won’t just release a pure and simple “Best Of” CD, the way that it is being done is I’m afraid typical of the music industry “wrap a best of up with some live tracks and a DVD” and inflate the price.

    This rips off the fans who have all the albums and thus could make their own “Best Of” should they wish but forces them, if collectors, to buy an enhanced “Best Of” for the extras.

    Meanwhile the fringe fans who won’t buy al the albums but like the better known tracks get skinned for the enhanced set.

    This would seem to be a AC/DC/Management/Record Label policy given that they won’t allow their tracks to be sold through iTunes.
