ACDC Backtracks Box Set

“The exterior box is designed to resemble a vintage AC/DC guitar amp – complete with the original logo that was spray-painted onto the rear of Angus and Malcolm’s speaker cabinets in 1975. The “head” of the amp has a handle that lifts the top off to reveal the contents housed within. Oh yeah, the head is also a working guitar amplifier! That’s right, one watt of pure AC/DC makes this box a truly unique collector’s item. You can play the box set while listening to the box set! Check out the videos of Angus using the amp.

The box, which includes 3 CDs and 2 DVDs of ACDC rare tracks, recordings and videos, also includes a 12″ LP, numerous memorabilia reproductions as well as a 164-page hard bound book containing rare and unseen photos spanning 1974-2009 plus full-size re-prints of original press releases, tour itineraries, tour books, test pressing labels, advertisements and much more. A real history of the band from the inside out. Rare photography includes never-before-seen shots of the band recording at the Albert Music studio on King Street in Sydney with legendary producers Harry Vanda and George Young in 1977. Also tons of unpublished live shots from all over the world.”

    I’m kind of lost as to what the box is intended for, the cd’s? The amp?

    Anyways, it’s a great idea to give the fans something more than just a box featuring a photo of the band members, which is usually the case. If only I listened to ACDC I would definitely want to to own such a thing.

    Brilliant work… I think the packaging captures the spirit of the band perfectly (important for any box set)… diggn’ the finished-unfinished, vintage execution of all the pieces, too. Instead of trying to make AC/DC 2010, this looks to showcase the band in it’s glory day…def. some romance in the rawness. Plugging into the head & rocking out? Yes, it’s the perfect touch of novelty. I don’t think you have to be a fan to appreciate this & if you happen to be one, I’m not sure how you could resist the purchase. Well done!
