Nothing really qualifies me to write this review aside from me being a fan. I first heard the song 'TNT' somewhere around 1984/1985 when I was around 6 years old. I later got formally introduced to the band's music in 1990 with The Razor's Edge. That was all I needed to get started, and I soon had most of the albums on cassette (yes, I did say cassette) which I still have today.
In the time since, I managed to see the band live twice, both on the Stiff Upper Lip tour in Las Vegas in 2000 and Salt Lake City in 2001. For the past few years, I've been running a few AC/DC websites and collecting various bootlegs and memorabilia from throughout their career. God knows how much time I've spent listening to their music (both studio and live) in my life, but it's definitely a lot.
Today, I'm still running two AC/DC websites and am anxiously awaiting the new album, along with everyone else. I am still a fan now, and probably more so than a few years ago given this place & time in my life. The reason I do what I do is simply because I'm a fan. Enough with this garbage, let's dive into 'Plug Me In'.
'Plug Me In' Overview
Taken from some press info:
"The ultimate career-spanning dvd boxed set of live performances & more from the world's most electrifying rock & roll band."
That pretty much sums it up. I first heard a rumor about a 2 dvd set back in March/April 2007, then saw track lists floating around of what was supposed to be included. I was skeptical, but it all came true. And it was worth the wait.
I'll work my way through all 3 discs. Seeing as how the complete 2 disc set and the first 2 discs of the 3 disc set are identical, that will cover everything. I'll then hit the packaging seperately and anything that might be left over.
