Availability is is currently showing as being back in stock in 7 days, but I can confirm HMV are accepting orders at the advertised price (I just placed an order for one!). Cracking price for great album (up to For Those About to Rock AC/DC did not release a bad album in my humble opinion!). Tracklist as follows:

1. Rock 'n' Roll Damnation
2. Down Payment Blues
3. Gimme A Bullet
4. Riff Raff
5. Sin City
6. What's Next To The Moon
7. Gone Shootin'
8. Up To My Neck In You
9. Kicked In The Teeth

With AC/DC's third release, POWERAGE, the band was dispensing even heftier ammo from their hook-laden cartridge belt. With the rock-steady rhythm section pounding out 4/4 beats as if it were overtaking a small country, guitarists (and brothers) Angus and Malcolm Young trade towering riffs that belie their pint-sized physical stature. The real change on POWERAGE is a noted improvement in songwriting skill. The six-minute "Down Payment Blues" actually has a sense of restraint and building tension, as opposed to the band's usual hit-the-ground running approach.
"Sin City", an ode to Las Vegas, features the band's most colourful lyrics (that don't have to do with bathroom humour, that is) and again displays a dynamic variety not previously heard from the Aussie rockers. The more familiar pounders, "Rock 'n Roll Damnation", "Riff Raff", and "What's Next to the Moon" are tighter, focused bursts of energy that point towards the total mastery of the form the band would display on its next release, HIGHWAY TO HELL.

I've always liked Riff Raff, especially the live version on If You Want Blood......

I saw them live a few years back...

Some of my fav's:

Little Lover
TNT
Dirty Deeds
Big Balls (classic)
Up to my neck in you

They have a load of digipack remastered albums, but prefer Vinyl personally

This has to be one of their most underrated cd's ever - total rocker throughout! I loke kicked in the teeth! I agree with the OP except I would say Back in Black was the last decent cd. I thought FTATR was poor apart from the title track. Have to say as well Black Ice is excellent!

What a show hampden was!

Meant to add Bon Scott was/is the best frontman of any band ever - no arguments please!

You will love it - every song a rocker :thumbsup:

I think there are still some good songs on the later albums...Razers Edge has a few good tracks as does "Who Made Who"...I find Back in Black a bit overstated to be honest...its very commerical but good track none the less...Johnson did the band proud after Bon going

best albums for me are T.N.T and Powerage, if you like AC/DC you need to have these two

Heretic !!

There is no such thing s a bad AC/DC album, repeat after me ......

OK, not all AC/DC albums are equal - but compared to some other dross out there, each and every one deserves a place in your collection. (Same goes for Maiden, but if you want to ignore the Bailey years I could understand, and W.A.S.P.).

Thats what I meant too - from FTATR was the beginning of the downward curve.

Agree with nearly all you say. Though I was a little surprised that they did not play a single track from Stiff Upper Lip, not even the title track!??

Just to keep the momentum going....

For what its worth I think Black ice is the only decent thing they have done since Back in Black. Good to see the band playing shot down in flames for the euro tour - prob my favourite song of theirs!

No way! Don't forget Lets get it up, Put the finger on you, Inject the venom, COD, Evil Walks etc. I gave it a play all the way through recently after not playing it for a while and I don't think its that far behind BIB. Saw them at the NEC recently, stage set was awesome :thumbsup:

Hot deal BTW

Looks like a good show SHB....

Was amzing - I was at the MEN show a few months ago and I thought that couldnt be beaten (what a hall the MEN is!) but Hampden was just amazing and the crowd were crazy

Great find, first time I've seen an AC/DC album below the £4.99 mark

Fantastic album , great price - voted hot.
Seeing this just reminded me that on my vinyl version there is another track listed
Cold Hearted Man
this is an awesome tune but isn't on the cd . I just did a quick search on the net and can't find it listed so i am now wondering if i have a rare copy . If you havn't heard it have a search for it you won't be dissapointed , i'm sure it would be on the net somewhere.
I was gutted i couldn't get tickets to see them , cost me a fortune in phonecalls and got nowhere , i hope they come back here , after all this was the country that made them.

From what I recall the original UK vynil copy had cold hearted man instead of Rock n roll damnation. The aussie version had this in reverse. The cd is featuring the tracklist from the aussie cd :thumbsup:
