You've heard all of these songs many times before, but never like this! The greatest names in heavy metal get together and put together a scorching tribute to one of the legendary bands of all time, AC/DC. It's a who's who of heavy metal, some bands, and some individuals together in a group you could only dream about, putting their personal touches on some of rock's all-time classic hits.
Bon Scott , the charismatic and now legendary front man for AC/DC who died on the eve of superstardom and who left a incredible musical legacy, the man who gave us such memorable quotes as “people ask me if i’m AC or DC, neither I’m the lightning in the middle” is the subject, or catalyst, for this exciting new release. Without alot of hoopla along comes this box set that presents all of the soundboard live recordings that feature Bon Scott on vocals. Since the band was in their formative years and were a touring band they used radio as a means to get their music out to people to be heard, the majority of this set is culled from these radio broadcasts. They are not only among the best in quality but also performance.
This two CD set features the best AC/DC songs performed by Lemmy (Motorhead), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), John Corabi (Motley Crue), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow), Jake E. Lee (Ozzy, Badlands) and many others.
AC/DC Live At River Plate was recorded in Buenos Aires in December 2009 when nearly 200,000 fans (over 3 sold-out nights) thunderously welcomed AC/DC back after a 13-year absence from Argentina. The two CD set captures the legendary grandeur, excitement and energy that AC/DC’s live performances are renowned for. This ultimate live recording chronicles one of the largest shows from their massively successful Black Ice World Tour (where they performed to over 5 million fans in 108 cities in over 28 countries). The 19 tracks on AC/DC Live At River Plate span AC/DC’s extensive repertoire, including old and new classics like “Back In Black,” “Thunderstruck,” “You Shook Me All Night Long” and “Rock N Roll Train.”
It doesn't matter if you love AC/DC or hate them. It doesn't matter if you think Angus Young's bizarre schoolboy costume makes him a fashion victim or a major style icon. It doesn't matter if you think Brian Johnson is one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time or simply Rod Stewart-lite. Whatever your personal opinion about all of these pressing international issues may be, you might want to check out AC/DC Live at River Plate if only for one completely irrelevant, tangential item. Buenos Aires' gargantuan Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, otherwise known as the River Plate Stadium, hosted a three night event over the first two weeks of December, 2009, that saw AC/DC perform nine sold out concerts to a thronging mass of humanity.
Jeff Healey was an astounding and varied talent as a singer, guitarist, and, later in his career, as a trumpet player, and it's difficult to imagine an artist quite like him. Blind from eye cancer since the age of one, he drew attention as a maverick guitar player (he played his Stratocaster on his lap, which allowed him to attack and bend the strings in a totally unique style; at his best, he roared and soared as well as anybody ever has on the instrument). This four-disc set (three CDs and a DVD) features Healey and his crackerjack band live in three separate concerts, and it makes clear what a powerful and empowering performer he was on-stage. The first disc catches the Jeff Healey Band blazing through an 11-song set at the 1989 Montreal Jazz Festival, with the second disc capturing a set from the St. Gallen Open Air Festival in Switzerland from 1991 (the performance was filmed and makes up the DVD included here), and the third disc presents a 1995 stage set from the Hard Rock in Toronto.
