Editorial Reviews

When Bon Scott died at the age of 33, many thought this wasthe end of AC/DC. The band rebounded by recruiting vocalistBrian Johnson (a Scott favourite) and releasing their best-selling album ever, BACK IN BLACK. BONFIRE is a five-disc tribute to the pugnacious and raspy-voiced Scott, overflowing with the bare-fisted riffs and ribald lyrics that were the trademark of his edition of the band. Recorded live at New York's Atlantic Studios, Disc 1 was originally a promotionalonly release that's been bootlegged countless times over the years. All thriller, no filler, this recording overflows with plenty of classics ranging from the band's cheeky tribute to venereal disease ("The Clap") to the tale of an over-sexed Rubenesque female fan ("Whole Lotta Rosie".) Discs Twoand Three are an expanded version of the soundtrack to the 1980 concert film "Let There Be Rock". Recorded before a French audience, AC/DC's in-your-face performance transcended any cultural differences and the audience often sang along despite language barriers. Entitled VOLTS, Disc Four consists of work-in-process studio recordings of material such as "Touch Too Much" and "Get It Hot" with different lyrics than the finished versions. The inclusion of the slow blues of "Ride On" shows another side to AC/DC often lost among the lascivious offerings of "Beatin' Around The Bush" and "She's Got Balls". A re-mastered version of BACK IN BLACK completes this set marking the end of one era and the beginning of another.

I've been listening to AC/DC since the late 70s and have every album by them. Bon Scott is my favorite singer of all time. Bonfire is something that us "hardcore" AC/DC fans have been waiting for for almost twenty years! Some really great rare live stuff and some cool outakes/unrealesed songs from The Highway To Hell sessions. Bon would be proud.
While Back In Black is a Brian Johnson album- I think that it's fitting that it was included in this set. It was, after all, a tribute to the late, great Bon Scott. I also love the original artwork on Back In Black.
Also included is a really cool AC/DC bottle opener/keychain, poster,sticker, and a very insightful booklet about AC/DC's years with Bon Scott.
This box set probably wouldn't appeal to "newbies" only "hardcores" like myself and many others who have grown up listening to everything by this incredible hard rock band.
To people who are just getting into AC/DC I would highly recommend Highway To Hell, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Powerage and Let There Be Rock. All are outstanding albums with Bon Scott.
Also check out the classics Back In Black and For Those About To Rock. The two best offerings(in my opinion) from AC/DC with Brian Johnson on vocals.
Bonfire is an excellent tribute to one of rock's greatest front men. As I stated before-Bon would be proud.

This set is a tribute to Ronald (Bon) Scott who died tragically of Severe Alcohol Use. This set offers all of the best Early Ac/DC and Back in Black, one of the Best selling albums of all time.
The first CD, Live in Atlantic studio's offer's 8 songs from a series of Radio Concerts AC/DC did at Atlantic studios, it has songs like Live Wire and Hell ain't a bad place to be, as well as other AC/DC Classics. The sound quality is great. except for some parts where the master tape was destroyed. But theres only like 30 seconds of this and yo can hardly notice.
the second CD, Volts, is a Collection of Rare Stdio and live Recordings, the two Live songs are Sin City and She's Got Balls. My 2 Personal favorite songs on this CD are Backseat Confidential with the riffs from the recording Beating around the bush, and Its a long way to the top(if you want to rock and roll). i always laugh when i here this song becase of the bagpipe solos, you'd think AC/DC and bagpipes dont mix, but they made it work. The sound Quality on this Album is just like all their studio albums except the 2 live songs.
The third album is Let There Be Rock (the Movie)live from Paris. I love this album which includes 2 CD's. again in some parts the master tape was destroyed but you can barely here it, and its only for like 30 seconds. other than that the sound quality is great. It has Great songs such as The Jack, TNT, Let there Be Rock And whole lotta Rosie
Back in Black, youd think, Why this? well i am glad they put it in because it compliments all the other albums because of its meaning. It was meant as a tribute to bon after he died. the songs are remastered on this one and it sounds even better than the first. And it has a different case and the cd looks different.

I'm a huge AC/DC fan and Bon is possibly my favorite singer of all time and getting to see some live and unreleased tracks from his early and golden days was a real treat to me. 3 live discs and one with unreleased tracks is well worth the money but I can't see why Back in Black was put on this set. Any person who would spend $50 - $70 on a AC/DC set without a doubt has Back in Black. Bon's a singer who died far too early and it was a shame that he had to pass but I'm sure he would be happy with the boxed set that really is the ultimate tribute to celebrate his legacy. A great buy for any AC/DC fan even with Babk in Black in it.

Bonfire is a fitting tribute to Bon Scott, one of rock's most enduring legends. When Bon Scott left us on February 19, 1980; so did a part of AC/DC. Sure, Bon's "replacement," Brian Johnson, has gone on to record some classic albums with AC/DC, but the fact is, there is only one Bon Scott. Bon Scott was a character, and a believable one at that. Bon sang about partying, the road, and dirty women, just like countless other rockers, but unlike so many others, Bon Scott is the real deal, and it comes through in his delivery. Nobody was wittier, nobody was more mischivous, and no one can tell a story like the great Bon Scott. 1997 brings us a LONG overdue tribute to Bon Scott, a box set called Bonfire. This 5 CD set is awesome! The CD's include: "Live From Atlantic Studios," the "Let There Be Rock" movie soundtrack,(2 CDs), a Cd of demos and other rarities called Volts, and the only questionable entry in the box set, "Back In Black." Which is AC/DC's first album without Bon, and is dedicated to him. Sure, "Back In Black" is a bona-fide classic, but what AC/DC fan who is willing to dish out $65 for a box set doesn't already own "Back In Black?" A much more suitable replacement would be a CD containing some of the Australian only tracks, such as "Crabsody In Blue" and "R.I.P.(Rock In Peace)". Fortunately, "School Days" is included in the Volts CD. Overall, this box set is a MUST HAVE for any AC/DC-Bon Scott fan. If you don't own it, what are you waiting for, buy it- NOW!
