AC/DC's Early Nineties Castle Donington Concert Rocks!
highway_star | Hallandale, Florida United States | 11/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After watching this never before released (in The U.S.) AC/DC concert from Castle Donington, I was amazed at the sound quality of this dvd. But after watching it several times and watching Angus Young's fingers doing his fancy fretwork, I sadly realized that parts of this concert have been doctored. That's the reason for the excellent sound, alot of overdubs. On certain songs it's obvious Anguses guitar riffs have been tampered with and cleaned up. His fingers don't match what he's playing on a number of songs. Nonetheless, it all sounds great, but was it really necessary? Possibly the original concert tapes were of inferior quality and this was part of the reason for the "cleaning up" as so to speak. The concert itself is amazing with Angus running back and forth doing his famous goosewalk as he strums his Gibson SG Standard guitar. The energy level certainly never lets up and the entire band sounds great. Singer Brian Johnson's voice fits well with even the earlier AC/DC Bonn Scott material such as "Jailbreak", "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be", "Highway To Hell", "The Jack", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", etc. Since this concert was filmed in 1991 AC/DC include a few of their songs from the new (at the time) "Razor's Edge" album such as "Thunderstruck", and "Fire Your Guns". There are the usual songs such as "Back In Black", "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Hells Bells", "Shoot To Thrill" all from their 1980 "Back In Black" album as well as a few from other albums such as "Heatseeker" and the anthem "For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)". The picture quality is also excellent on this dvd which by the way is two hours long. There's also a colorful booklet included with the dvd which includes AC/DC's 1991 "Razor's Edge" tour dates as well as information about the Castle Donington concert. I would recommend this dvd to all AC/DC fans as well as heavy metal rock lovers worldwide."
For those About to Rock !!!

"Absolutely Best at the Highest possible Volume on a Surround sound system.
AC/DC Deliver for the fans, and they deliver consistently.
I doubt very much that the DVD is Overdubbed, since the Sound is the Same as Every other AC/DC Release. But even if it is overdubbed, WHAT THE HELL...
This is a Great Show, and the Goods are delivered.
Angus Plays brilliantly, and works the crowd superbly. As for the alleged disparity between what you see and what you hear... Angus is 5"2, so his playing of the Gibson SG he uses is deceptive, it looks one way when physically he is producing the sound by what his body does and his left hand technique. Hard to explain, but what you see is not always what you hear.
The other thing that I thought any Movie viewer would know, is that In Making a Concert Film, a Second , third, or whatever, camera is used for "Inserts", and this is matched as best as can be done... which does not always work; this does not mean that the Track is overdubbed, merely that the Line editor, and the Final Edit did not match.

Anyway, this is Superb.

Get NO BULL: LIVE IN MADRID, and The DVD of AC/DC Live in Munich... Extremely Brilliant !!!!!!!!
This is a real Step up from the Original VHS Release."
Never a dull moment

"AC/DC never fails to put on a spectacular performance and this DVD captures it well on film. Unfortunately, I've never had the honor to see them live for real, but I can only imagine how awesome that would be. They have a real stage presence that seems to be nonexistant in the music of today. "Family Jewels" is a good buy also, has the Bon Scott performances.

Songs Included:

1. THUNDERSTRUCK
2. SHOOT TO THRILL
3. BACK IN BLACK
4. HELL AIN'T A BAD PLACE TO BE
5. HEATSEEKER
6. FIRE YOUR GUNS
7. JAILBREAK
8. THE JACK
9. DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP
10. MONEYTALKS
11. HELLS BELLS
12. HIGH VOLTAGE
13. WHOLE LOTTA ROSIE (complete with blow up Rosie)
14. YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG
15. T.N.T.
16. LET THERE BE ROCK
17. HIGHWAY TO HELL
18. FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (WE SALUTE YOU)"
Disappointed

"I know that this concert was filmed back in 1991, and to compare it to more recent recordings that were made for HD isn't a fair comparison, but i doubt that there is much a difference from the regular DVD and the blu ray version. The footage is very grainy and when you see the shots from a distance it looks like every other pixel on the screen is a white dot. The sound is great(especially if you have a good theater system), but the video of this disk isn't up to what i'd expect for High Definition."
