Customer Review

on March 4, 2003
"High Voltage" was one of the first albums I purchased when I was in Junior High School. I finally decided to replace my pop filled album copy with this newly minted remaster. It sounds great especially without all the pops from my album version. The US release of "High Voltage" was an eye opener in 1976 for the unknowing US buyers. The Young brothers unleashed their patented blues/boogie riffs on the unsuspecting stateside public still accustomed to singer-songwriters. The catchy riffs eventually became favorites of rockers everywhere. The album is actually a compilation of two albums issued earlier in their Australian homeland "High Voltage" and "TNT". "High Voltage" also features original bass player Mark Evans along with long time drummer Phil Rudd. Bon Scott's vocals provide a boozy swagger missing from the current version of the band fronted however admirably Brit screamer Brian Johnson. The set contains a number of classics like "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll)", and "Live Wire". My own personal favorites are the double-entendre filled "The Jack", "TNT" with its "Oi! Oi! Oi!" chant and "High Voltage". The other tracks are also interesting. This is one of their best albums especially from the period when Bon Scott was in the band. The new disk also contains a link to a website with more information about the making of the album, pictures, tour dates from their tour to promote "High Voltage" and other interesting items for fans of the band.
My only regret other than the first song being edited is that no bonus tracks were included from either the original Australian release of "High Voltage" or "TNT" the other Australian only release that some of the tracks on the US version of "High Voltage" were taken. Some of these cuts are still not released in the United States.
The remastered version also contains new expanded liner notes and photos including copies of the Australian covers of "High Voltage" and "TNT". This is the album that started it all. The rest as they say is history. The Young brothers riffs carry the day along with the vocals of Scott. It is appropriate that this instantly recognizable band will be inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame.
