Performer Notes
  • This is a Hyper CD, which contains regular audio tracks and also provides a link to the artist's website with the help of a web browser.
  • AC/DC: Bon Scott (vocals); Angus Young, Malcolm Young (guitar); Cliff Williams (bass); Phil Rudd (drums).
  • Recorded live in 1978. Originally released on Atlantic (19212). Includes liner notes by Rich Bienstock.
  • The hard rock world got a close-up view of the power of AC/DC with the band's first live offering, IF YOU WANT BLOOD, YOU'VE GOT IT. Although the Australian rockers had three prior studio releases of undeniable crunch under their belt, it was this live document that captured the band in all its' chomping power chord glory. Distilling the blues and rock 'n' roll down to its barest structures of guitar/bass/drums leaves little room for error. Without heavy production techniques, keyboards, tape loops (or even an effect pedal, for that matter), the band takes to the stage with only bare-knuckle riffs and a floor shaking 4/4 beat.
  • And shake the floor they did. Many of the tunes included here are became early live classics for the band. Certainly, "The Jack," a gleeful tale of sexually transmitted disease and "Whole Lotta Rosie," another heartwarming romp about a...uh...large female fan were concert staples during the band's formative years for good reason. Led by Angus Young's gargantuan guitar, these songs are trademark boogie stoppers full of adolescent lust and a hedonistic sweat that is entirely guilt free.
Professional Reviews
Q (10/03, p.124) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...For a true snapshot of the band at their bawdy, breathless, balls-out peak, 1978's live set IF YOU WANT BLOOD...is unbeatable..."
