AC/DC

The 30-year trail of wreckage behind Aussie rockers AC/DC includes 16 studio albums, one deceased singer, and countless shattered eardrums. This boxed set collects the songs that were left by the side of the road, including 18 studio rarities and 29 live tracks, stretching back to a blazing live version of “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” from ’77. Among the best outtakes are the sleazy STD homage “Crabsody in Blue,” originally yanked from Let There Be Rock, and the original single version of “High Voltage.” But the real gold is in the roof-burning live takes of staples such as “Shot Down in Flames” and “Shoot to Thrill.” The set also includes a DVD of AC/DC videos and a live DVD from Germany that shows three decades haven’t slowed them down—just made them meaner.
