Item of the Day: History
The official AC/DC site posts a 'rarity of the month' every so often, so I figured I could top that and post a rarity of the day. Ok, so not everything will be rare but I figured it would be interesting to see some of the different items floating around that AC/DC or others have put out. Be sure to check the 'Past Items' page in case you miss some.

Tracks 2 & 3 are from August 17, 1991 in Donington, England.
'Dirty Deeds...' has always been a particular AC/DC fave, so to commemorate this release they decided to do something different...something involving their fans. After all, the AC/DC audience isn't exactly backward in coming forward - just listen to this single! - so why not get the same people to design the sleeve as well...?!
Kerrang! magazine kindly agreed to organize things, inviting readers to send in drawings, paintings, hand-woven tapestries, whatever, which were then sent off to Angus who picked a winner and several runners-up. All of these were printed in Kerrang! no. 427, the outright winner being MATT BIGGS from Princes Risborough, who clearly knows his art from his elbow! Savour the sleeve, mosh to the music!!!
Year Released: 1992
Catalog Number: 96073-2
