AC/DC - Plug Me In - DVD Box Set Track Listing
Metal Fan | San Jose, Ca | 09/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

Columbia Records will release "Plug Me In" -- the
ultimate career-spanning DVD box set of live
performances, interviews and more from AC/DC, the
world's most electrifying rock and roll band -- on
Tuesday, October 16.

The first AC/DC release since the band came to
Columbia Records earlier this year, the AC/DC "Plug Me
In" DVD collection brings together for the very first
time an astonishing five hours of definitive live
concert and television performances -- many of them
previously unavailable -- chronicling the ongoing
career (now in its fourth decade!) of a groundbreaking
rock and roll powerhouse whose music transcends the
test of time.

"AC/DC has delivered the most dynamic rock and roll
music in the world," said Steve Barnett, Chairman,
Columbia Records. "Columbia is honored to be releasing
this definitive career-spanning retrospective
featuring many of AC/DC's finest filmed performances. "

Disc One of the AC/DC "Plug Me In" DVD collection
begins with a performance of "High Voltage" performed
in October 1975 on Australia's "King of Pop" awards
show. The first disc of "Plug Me In" is devoted to the
band's formative years (1975-1979) with the late Bon
Scott capturing the group in its full early glory with
more than 20 performances including rare
black-and-white video footage of the notorious St.
Albans High School concert on March 3, 1976; the very
first UK television appearance in July 1976; pristine
live full-color stereo concert performances from
Glasgow and Essex University in 1978; and three songs
-- including the very first public performance of
"Highway To Hell" -- from Netherlands television in
1979. Bonus material on Disc One includes a Bon Scott
interview from November 1977; extraordinary band
interviews from 1976; and four songs recorded live in
Nice on December 15, 1979, one of Bon Scott's last
concerts with the band before his tragic death on
February 19, 1980.

Disc Two of the AC/DC "Plug Me In" DVD collection
covers the band's second great epoch: the Brian
Johnson era which began with the release of "Back In
Black" in 1980 and continues to this day. In addition
to more than 20 performances drawn from three decades
of concerts around the world -- including an extremely
rare Japanese television appearance from February
1981, blistering '80s and '90s sets from Detroit to
Moscow, incredible footage from 1996's "Ballbreaker"
tour (including the "Beavis & Butthead" intro), and
21st century barnburners in Paris, Munich, and Toronto
-- "Plug Me In" includes a fantastic array of bonus
material including the AC/DC Donnington interview on
the "Old Grey Whistle Test" (August 1984) and AC/DC's
in-concert performance of "Rock Me Baby" with THE

A deluxe collector's edition of "Plug Me In" --
containing a third DVD of 21 additional rare
performances spanning both the Bon Scott and Brian
Johnson eras as well as a treasure trove of facsimile
reproductions of authentic AC/DC memorabilia -- will
also be available for a limited time beginning
Tuesday, October 16.

The AC/DC "Plug Me In" DVD box set is both a Holy
Grail for aficionados of AC/DC as well as an ideal and
comprehensive introduction to the music and history of
a pioneering band that continues to define the
electrifying possibilities of rock and roll.

Formed in Sydney, Australia in 1973 by brothers Angus
and Malcolm Young (still the most formidable electric
guitar team in rock), AC/DC released its first album,
"High Voltage", in 1975. The group has gone on to sell
nearly 70 million albums in the U.S. alone, making
AC/DC one of the five best-selling bands in American
music history. The "Back In Black" album has achieved
RIAA double diamond status, for sales in excess of 21
million copies in the United States, and is the U.S.'s
fifth largest-selling album ever.

AC/DC was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
in 2003.
What a Treat!!!

"Being an absolutely HUGE AC/DC fan, this was quite a treat for myself... Family Jewels was so so... and I've had several concert videos on VHS, but this was just such a great release for the fans, probably since the Bonfire Box. Two DVD's, one dedicated dedicated to each of the both phenomenal vocalists, being that I'm impartial to either singer (RIP Bon), Both DVD's are just great to throw on, hook up the audio cables to the Hi-Fi and let'er rip... The audio and video quality are both great, spanning the decades of Rock, All you whiny audiophiles out there who have to have HD tv and dolby 5.1 and all that jazz need to suck it up and crank up the good ol' fashioned VOLUME knob!!! Highly recommended purchase for fans!!"
Family Jewels was just a teaser compared to this!

"As good as Family Jewels was, this reasonably-priced 2 DVD set contains tons more raw and rare concert footage and even includes some great interviews with the band as well. As usual, each of the discs are devoted to the Bon and Brian era respectively.

Of course, the band are cashing in on their glory days with these releases but they breathe new life into songs with never before seen material for the most part. So, it's hardly just a nostalgia trip for fans like myself who know the albums by heart.

Don't know much about art, but I know what I like!!
William J. Irvin | Fremont, CA | 02/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is GREAT fun! If you are an AC/DC fan, this needs to be a part of your music library. I especially loved the old footage of a very young Bon Scott and Angus Young! The mind's image of Bon Scott in a dress and pigtails is rather repulsive, but when you actually see it, it's very funny.

I read the reviews below which panned this offering because it didn't have Dolby sound. Well, I'm not a sound expert, so I can't tell you whether it does or doesn't have Dolby sound, but I can tell you that it sounds GREAT to ME. That's all I care about! Besides, if you look at all the reviews that have been posted on Amazon by the others who have whined about the sound on this DVD, you will see that the vast majority of them are negative reviews. Seems like some people just enjoy looking for anything to complain about and when they find it, they have a field day.

I do understand that sound is much more important with music DVDs than regular movies (to me, anyway). I get that. The fact is, though, that unless you are a sound expert, or someone who can hear a pin drop 50 feet away, then this DVD sounds just fine. Great, in fact! I give it five stars. No, it's not perfect, but then, nothing is. The five star rating is because I don't know how to give it four-and-a-half. AC/DC fans, get this DVD today!!
