This is fairly nuts, but you have to admire the vision–Aussie lads AC/DC are set to release an insane box set of live and studio rarities, according to Paste Magazine. The Paste article says this is due out in early November, but you can find it for sale now on Amazon.com.
Back Tracks features three CDs, two DVDs, plus a 180 gram audiophile vinyl record full of rare studio stuff. Oh, did we mention the damn thing comes with a working guitar amp as part of the packaging? According to Paste, the head is fully functional.
We’re not big AC/DC fans here, but the cajones it took to assemble this collection–including the amp–are very big. Bigger, in fact, than Bon Scott’s delirious account of his Big Balls from the Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap LP.
PS: Trivia question–what’s the AC/DC connection with one of Australia’s most fun New Wave groups from the late 70s?
