Let there be rock (AC/DC) (LP 79)

AC/DC Let There Be Rock (CD - Sony, 1977) ****

Genre: Australia/NZ rock

Places I remember: The Warehouse (Cambridge)

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: Let There Be Rock

Gear costume: Bad Boy Boogie, Whole Lotta Rosie, Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be.

Active compensatory factors: The early history of the band is complicated because of the variety of international and Australian releases. So this is either the third or fourth studio album by the young Aussie battlers.

For many though, it's where the classic slam bam guitar rock sound of the band got fully underway thanks to the crunching Angus Young solos and fills. He has a very distinctive sound!

It also features Bon Scott - still (and forever) my favourite AC/DC vocalist.

The album has at least four classics on it, but the rest is not far away - quality control was at an all time high for the band in 1977 (what a year!!!).

Where do they all belong? In the Bon Scott AC/DC corner of my collection.
