was a banner year for AC/DC. From their induction into the Rock AND
Roll Hall Of Fame to massive European dates with the Rolling Stones, the
band made several high-profile public appearances (including the SARS
concert in Toronto for 200,000!). One run of shows found the band
returning to their roots – playing clubs and theaters where they
thrilled fans with sweaty, stripped-down shows and even throwing in some
rarities they hadn't played in years. This show from Munich, Germany is
the epitome of an “inside” look at how powerful the AC/DC show is –
without all the bells and whistles of the big arena and stadium shows
(well, they did bring the cannons…).

“I DO IT FOR AC/DC” BUTTON
The very first piece of merch the band
ever made. This vintage button measures 2" in diameter and features an
early shot of Angus and one of the first iterations of the band's logo.
During the 1991 Razors Edge tour, the band would shower themselves
and the crowd with thousand of "dollar bills" for the song "Moneytalks".
Usually, they would use replica U.S. dollars, as recreated in the 2CD
Collector's Edition of the LIVE album. However, when the band played
Australia, they switched over to a special replica Australian 100 dollar
bill, which were never circulated outside of those shows.
Also an early piece of merch, this was one of many references to
Angus' school boy persona that proved key to the band's early success. A
wild child on stage who looked like he just busted out of detention,
Angus was the visual centerpiece of the band's show and they took every
opportunity to play that up.
Any new amp needs a fresh guitar pick. This one-time-only
limited-edition pick features the same 1975 speaker cabinet logo as
featured on the back of the amp itself.
The first major UK tour the band embarked on in 1976 was sponsored by
the music magazine Sounds. Printed on the same "coupon" paper stock as
the original, it touts "A right summer school-time frolic". Includes
date in Glasgow, Cardiff, Liverpool, Birmingham and more. 8" x 5" (20cm x
Beautifully reproduced on heavy watercolor paper stock, these three
photos provide a rare look at Malcolm, Angus and Bon recording at the
Albert Productions King Street studios in Sydney. The shot of Malcolm is
from 1976 by the renowned photographer Phillip Morris. It shows the
original logo on the back of the amp speaker cabinet. The shots of Angus
and Bon are snapshots from a 1977 session and show Bon in the vocal
booth while Angus records solo overdubs under the watchful eyes of
producers Harry Vanda and George Young. These precious prints are
suitable for framing.
An absolute revelation to many AC/DC fans. This is an exact replica
of one of the Albert Productions multi track tape sheets for the "Dirty
Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" album. On heavy card stock and folded down the
middle (just like the real thing), this has the hand-written 16-track
notes for Harry Vanda and George Young for the songs "Jailbreak,"
"Problem Child," "Ride On," "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" and "R.I.P.
(Rock In Peace)" – itself making its ex-Australia CD debut on this box
1977 was the year AC/DC really broke big in the UK on the success of
the Let There Be Rock album. In preparation for the big tour there, this
limited-edition poster was created to announce dates and venues. One of
the most colorful and sought-after pieces of AC/DC memorabilia, this
24"x36" (60cm*90cm) poster is suitable for framing.
Fans all over the world have gotten inked just like Bon's famous
parrot tattoo. Now, you can (temporarily) give yourself a tattoo like
Bon sports on the cover of the Australian "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"
album cover. A more cartoonish version of the real thing, it features
the album name – just like the one on Bon's enormously drawn forearm.
