AC/DC Flick Of The Switch 180g LP
Remastered from the original mix-down 2-track masters for unprecedented sonic brilliance.
By 1983, AC/DC was enjoying the success of being the world's biggest rock band. Following two blockbuster albums with singer Brian Johnson (Back In Black and For Those About To Rock We Salute You) and massive sold-out world tours, the members of AC/DC (Angus and Malcolm Young on guitar, Cliff Williams on bass and Phil Rudd on drums) were generally tired of the pomp and circumstance that came with it all. After all, this was the rough-and-tumble bar band from Australia who only a few years ago were fighting to win over club crowds. So the band decided to strip away all of the excesses and get back to basics. No more major producers (the band produced themselves for the first time), no more slick management deals and a simple sketch for an album cover made Flick Of The Switch an old-fashioned stripped-down rock album—the kind they make best.
