SKU: 7b24badfc13c Category:


First european pressing with WE 851 in the catalouge number on the back AC/DC remained a popular concert draw throughout the '80s, although such albums as Flick of the Switch and Fly on the Wall failed to replicate their mass U.S. commercial success of 1980-1981 (Back in Black, For Those About to Rock, a reissue of Dirty Deeds). But the successful soundtrack for Stephen King's lackluster movie Maximum Overdrive, titled Who Made Who, put AC/DC back on the right track commercially. Their first new studio album of all-new material in three years, 1988's Blow Up Your Video turned out to be their most successful album since 1981's For Those About To Rock, even though it was chock full of filler. The driving album opener, Heatseeker, turned out to be a surprising Top Ten single in the U.K., while the anthemic Thats the Way I Want to Rock n Roll proved to be another highlight (video clips were filmed for both songs, as well). But from there on (with the exception of Kissin Dynamite and This Means War), it gets pretty unfocused. Blow Up Your Video also marked the return of AC/DC's early production team, Harry Vanda and George Young, who man the boards for the first time since 1978's If You Want Blood. Track listing: 1. Heatseeker 2. That's The Way I Wanna Rock n' Roll 3. Meanstreak 4. Go Zone 5. Kissin' Dynamite 6. Nick Of Time 7. Some Sin For Nuthin' 8. Ruff Stuff 9. Twos Up 10. This Means War
