"The Ultimate Volts" is a compilation of rarities and some unreleased tracks, collected by fans for fans. They get the best and completest summary of rare stuff between 1974 and 2000. You have never got and you will never get such a complete collection like this. (P) 2001 Produced with a friendly permission of AC/DC for all fanclubs in the world. Limited edition 1000 copies only.
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.
2003 was a big year for AC/DC which included their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to European dates with the Rolling Stones, the band made several high-profile public appearances (including the SARS concert in Toronto for 200,000 people). One run of shows found the band returning to their roots and playing clubs and theaters where fans were treated to sweaty, stripped-down shows and even playing some rarities they hadn't played in years. This DVD show from Munich, Germany was filmed at Circus Krone 2003 and this disc only available on the Deluxe Edition.
This feels like the ultimate collection of AC/DC's radio broadcasts from when the inimitable Bon Scott was fronting the band. The sound quality across all 8 shows is superb and it's great to see that the same attention paid to the sound has been paid to the artwork! Presented in a sturdy box with each CD in an individual gatefold sleeve, just like a vinyl gatefold, this is a superb collection. Highly recommended!
