    Good 70's Rock, But NOT AC/DC

    Anyone expecting this to sound like AC/DC is going to be very disappointed. This is very much a product of George Young, Harry Vanda and the late 60's. Angus and Malcolm just happen to appear on it because of their family connection. Lots of piano, female backing vocals and saxophone along with guitar. That's not to say I'm not enjoying it. Quite the opposite. It's an interesting album. A little all over the place style-wise. I think George and Harry were looking for a sound and tried a little of everything to see what stuck. Some of it actually reminds me of early Alice Cooper. The music, not lyrics or vocals. Some other early 70's rock too. A little funk in there too. It's pretty cool and a neat snap-shot of an era where bands were free to experiment. Just don't think it's a long lost AC/DC recording. Pretty far from it actually.

    I am a huge fan of the work of Harry Vanda and George Young, from their early days with the Easybeats and later with Flash and the Pan, as well as enjoying their production work with AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, and others. I was very excited to see this CD being reissued, as it had not been easily available or accessible. I think a lot of people may have interest in the CD because it's the first recording experience for Malcolm and Angus Young of AC/DC. Another Young brother, Alexander, also appears on the CD. Simply put, to me, this is a good rock and roll CD. There's a nice mixture of songs here. I think if you are a Vanda & Young fan you will not be disappointed.

    Really good album. Love the 70's sound and vibe. Nice addition to anyone's collection. Don't compare this to AC/DC which it isn't.
