Oddly, the legend of Bon Scott never haunted AC/DC. They grieved, certainly, but they were able to move on, releasing Back in Black as a tribute in 1980. The record became their biggest hit and helped them become one of the biggest rock & roll bands in the world. By the late '90s, the group remained popular, and a strange phenomenon had happened – there were generations of AC/DC fans who came of age after Scott's death, and had only a passing familiarity with the rocker…
BONFIRE contains rare live tracks, alternate takes, and previously unreleased material as well as a digitally remastered version of the album BACK IN BLACK…
This is a unique title, a 3 CD album that shows three different “faces” of everybody´s favorite hard rockers, the immortal AC/DC.
from allmusic: Originally unveiled in December 1975, TNT was the second AC/DC album released in their native Australia, but is often overlooked outside the Land Down Under because its best tracks were later combined with those from the band's first domestic album, High Voltage, for reissue as their international debut from 1976 — also entitled High Voltage. Confused? That's actually quite understandable, since the songs culled from TNT also formed the backbone of that international release, including the entire, flawless first album side, made up of such all-time classics as "It's a Long Way to the Top," "Rock 'n' Roll Singer," "The Jack," and "Live Wire." TNT's B-side was nearly as formidable: boasting both of those Australian album title tracks — the proto-punk crunch of "T.N.T." and the suitably electrifying "High Voltage" — as well as a much-needed remake of the group's very first single, "Can I Sit Next to You Girl," recorded two years earlier with original singer Dave Evans. All three also made it into the international edition of High Voltage, and as for the two tracks that did not: one was concert favorite, "Rocker," which would be duly unearthed for the Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap LP, a short time later; and the other was a reverential but not exactly life-altering cover of Chuck Berry's "School Days," which eventually surfaced on the Bonfire box set. In other words, TNT, though largely lost to ancient history, was a stellar album in its own right, and especially crucial in that it marked AC/DC's definitive break with their now seemingly heretical glam rock inclinations, in order to embrace the blue collar hard rock hat would forever after be their trademark.

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!

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.
