AC/DC: The Family Jewels

( 4 )

Overview

AC/DC have been one of the world's truly great hard rock bands for more than 30 years, and the sound and fury of the group's stripped-to-the-bone, blues-shot boogie has stood the test of time far better than many of their hipper contemporaries. Anyone who doubts this needs to pick up Epic's superb double-disc DVD retrospective AC/DC: Family Jewels, which features 20 rarely seen television performances, promo clips, and live takes from 1975 to 1980, during Bon Scott's tenure with the band, and another 20 from 1980...

Overview

AC/DC have been one of the world's truly great hard rock bands for more than 30 years, and the sound and fury of the group's stripped-to-the-bone, blues-shot boogie has stood the test of time far better than many of their hipper contemporaries. Anyone who doubts this needs to pick up Epic's superb double-disc DVD retrospective AC/DC: Family Jewels, which features 20 rarely seen television performances, promo clips, and live takes from 1975 to 1980, during Bon Scott's tenure with the band, and another 20 from 1980 on, when Brian Johnson took over as lead singer. This set serves up three hours of unflagging energy and thunderous guitars with lots of rockin' and little fuss, and that's reflected in the presentation on disc. All the material on AC/DC: Family Jewels has been transferred to disc in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, as originally shot, and while some of the source materials are a bit worse for wear, the transfers are sharp and rich, and the rarity of most of the Bon Scott material far outweighs the occasional emulsion scratches or technical anomalies. In the great AC/DC tradition of "simple is better," this set doesn't feature any surround sound remixes, multiple audio formats, or commentary tracks -- just strong, uncompressed PCM Stereo that captures the band's pile-driver sound with commendable force and accuracy; crank up your receiver and it'll sound like Malcolm Young is thrashing away at his Gibson SG right next to you. Predictably, there are no bonus materials beyond a discography on disc two, but given how complete this set it, and how well it has been put together, it's hard to imagine anyone who likes this band having room to complain -- this is a superb audio-visual crash course in the greatness that is AC/DC, and if you dig hard rock you need to have The Family Jewels in your DVD library.

    A must for any ACDC fan

    As a I have been a fan of this group most of my life it is an essential piece for anyone to have in their collection. While Brian Johnson has been the lead singer for the better part of three decades now, it is also great to sng the original Bon Scot as well; whose voice is as original as any singer for any metal or hard rock group.

    How good AC/DC really is?

    This dvd set is one of the best bands i've ever watched on a dvd. This futtage of Bon Scott is the only I have ever seen and I new as soon as I watched the song " It's a Long Way to the Top(if you want to rock'n roll) it was worth every penny. I would highly suggest this is if your a classical music fanatic.
