AC/DC don't give a sh*t. The record company don't give a sh*t. Bottom line is you WILL eventually pay for this CD even though it only has five tracks and runs no longer than twenty three minutes. WHY? Cuz, it's a blistering five tracks.

The deal with this CD is complicated. Before HIGHWAY TO HELL was released in 1979 to much acclaim, most AC/DC albums were tracked differently in the U.S than the original Australian releases.

HIGH VOLTAGE (the first album) is actually closer to the bands Aussie second album (TNT). Several songs never made it over seas from the first four AC/DC albums. DIRTY DEEDS wasn't even released in the US until 1981 and was still missing certain tracks. One of them being JAILBREAK.

In 1984 the band decided that in honor of their 10th anniversary they would release a retrospective of "lost" material. Stuff that had previously only been available through imports or bootlegs. The collection is great, its just that they could have squeezed at least five or six more songs in. There is STILL a whole bunch of material that isn't available on anything in this country. NOT EVEN a box set.

So why didn't the boys in AC/DC do something about this? Because they don't care. Very simple. They aren't going to change anything, because I assume that involves paperwork and stuff. Anyway the songs ARE pisser, and should not be missed, but there are SO MANY other songs that tear it up, and I've only found due to the power of illegal downloading. I surely would have paid for them, had they been made available!

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR (not limited to): STICK AROUND; CARRY ME HOME; COLD HEARTED MAN; ROCK IN PEACE; SCHOOL DAYS; and LOVE SONG.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Piece of the AC/DC Pie August 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of AC/DC then you simply have to own 'Jailbreak'. Sure it's short in length, but it is so full of good music that what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. The song 'Jailbreak' is AC/DC at it's best with Bon Scott's unique and edgy vocals. Angus Young's guitar work is phenominal. 'You Aint' Got A Hold on Me' shows where the band is heading with a more melodic rhythm and catchy chorus, and 'Soul Stripper' shows where the band came from, with a really great blues vocal by Bon. Another highlight of 'Jailbreak' is the cover of Them/Van Morrison's tune 'Baby Please Don't Go'. The instantly recognizable guitar hook is great, and AC/DC takes this classic and makes it their own.

Sure it's a short album, but there is so much jammed in here that you can't pass it over. It may be a little expensive, but honestly I play 'Jailbreak' a lot more often than I play other CD's that I have paid as much if not more for, CD's that will be played once and shelved, so you tell me which one is the better value?

2.0 out of 5 stars Let me tell you a story March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1974 AC/DC released there first album, which was called "HighVoltage" (not to be confused with the world issue)
the tracks where

1. Baby Please Don't Go
2. Shes Got Balls
3. Little Lover
4. Stick Around
5. Soul Stripper
6. You Ain't Got A Hold On Me
7. Love Song
8. Show Business

AC/DC's second album was called TNT and when they went international, they released a new international album also named HIGHVOLTAGE which contained most of the songs off TNT except for "School Days" and "Rocker"

Then after the tragic death of Bon Scott the fans were still screaming for more Bon! Already DDDDC was released in Australia, but it was banned from US marketing because some idiot thought it was promoting the wrong thing... you know how they are... and so they took one track off DDDDC (Australia) called "Jailbreak" and then added most off what was still unreleased from the OZ HV album.... and that's where the downfall really comes from this re-issue

this re-issue should have contained the 2 other songs from the original
- Love Song
- Stick Around

Amongst many others still unreleased to this day!

My advice is to not get this album, and go for the Australian release of HighVoltage instead and The Australian Dirty Deeds albums!

4.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC - ' '74 Jailbreak' (Sony) December 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Until I recently dug this five-track mini-album up, I can't remember the last time I heard this vintage title. Think I once had a vinyl copy of this record. No matter, this is AC/DC at their very earliest work. Raw, angry and just plain heavy. However, at the same time, I think '74 Jailbreak' may be more bluesy than any of their other lp's. Play this one repeatedly, you'll have time. Classic track listing: "Jailbreak" (4:40), "You Ain't Got A Hold On Me" (3:30), "Show Business"(4:43), "Soul Stripper" (6:23) and their Big Joe Williams standard cover "Baby, Please Don't Go" (4:50). Simply, a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with this on first listen! February 15, 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
I know this is AC/DC shortest album and all but this is one of their most concestant albums and also one of their strongest. I bought this for 'Jailbreak' which is the best song on the album by the way. But anyways I bought it for "Jailbreak' and fell in love with the whole thing. All the songs are good. AC/DC's version of 'Baby Please Dont Go' is one of the best versions I have ever heard and I have heard them all. 'Baby Please Dont Go' is one of my all time favorite songs so its hard for someone to please me with their version so that is saying a lot about AC/DC's. If you are a fan of old AC/DC say like the Bon Scott era then you will love this, and if you liked Brian Johnson better you will still love this, you wount be let down, and this you can count on!

When AC/DC is your favorite band, all of their albums are five star. I would review it song buy song, but more qualified people have already done so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should Hard Blues Rock.
AC/DC is a great band throughout their whole career, but favorite Person is the Bon Scott Period. 1974s Jailbreak is a solid hard rocking Blues Rock Album, Every song is great.
