Overview

Snapper's Roots of AC/DC collects 20 slabs of early R&B, rock & roll and electric blues to help illuminate the creation of one of hard rock's most enduring cases of arrested development.

As compilations go, Roots of AC/DC could just as easily be called "Roots of Rock & Roll," as it's populated with enough heavy hitters like John Lee Hooker, Little Richard, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and the aforementioned Berry to warrant multiple spins in the "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame" gift shop.
