Stick This in Your Fusebox

Shuffle just cued up AC/DC’s cover of “Baby Please Don’t Go”, which naturally brings to mind the recent release of their Plug Me In DVD box set.  Just about everything on that is a gem (I have footage of some of the earlier shows from other sources and enjoyed them, but the re-mastering for the box set is so excellent and makes listening an even more enjoyable experience) and a highlight is the performance of that song at a show in Melbourne in 1976.  It is stunning and enough to make one think that the tradeoff of being almost fifty now instead of only forty would be worth having had the chance to see the band live back when Bon Scott was still alive.  The shows I’ve seen with Brian Johnson have been great (including the two shows they played in Portland for the Ballbreaker tour; the second was a generous makeup for the first having taken place during inclement weather and some folks weren’t able to make it to the Rose Garden, so I got to see them twice in a year) but there was something special about that band in the seventies.
