AC/DC - High Voltage 180g Vinyl LP

AC/DC High Voltage 180g Vinyl LP

 

AC/DC's debut album, High Voltage, is a stripped-down collection of loud, raw, rude rockers, mostly odes to rock & roll and its attendant hard-partying lifestyle — to paraphrase the leadoff track, 'It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll),' getting drunk, stoned, beat up, and laid.

 

The band reveled in its own macho obnoxiousness, particularly Bon Scott; at the end of the gleefully sexist, double-entendre-filled 'The Jack,' Scott grandiosely thanks a hostile, booing dubbed-in crowd.

 

While their sense of humor and clever wordplay made early AC/DC a great deal of sleazy, infectious fun, the band's revolutionary musical attack could not be overlooked — Angus Young's manic guitar solos overlaid a series of simple, basic boogie grooves delivered with ferocious power and volume, a sound that made the band a popular attraction at British punk clubs around this same time.

 

The formula would be refined on subsequent albums, but High Voltage proves that AC/DC were already in the big leagues.
