Before a sparse, but vocal audience packed into New York's famous Atlantic Studios, the bad boy boogie brigade from down-under, AC/DC, belted out three chord riffola for the long hair rebellious masses on December 7, 1977. With tape running, AC/DC bashed and crashed their way through a hot fourty-five minute live set. The songs were quickly mixed, with 5,000 LPs of _Live From the Atlantic Studios_ pressed for promotional distribution to rock radio stations.Still basically unknown in America in '77, as the group hit the states to promote the North American release of the _Let There Be Rock_ LP, leering Bon Scott and diminutive headbangin' school boy guitarist Angus Young, sparked the electrified set of no-frills heavy rock and hard roll. It wouldn't be long after _Live From the Atlantic Studios_ was aired that AC/DC would blaze a hellacious trail to the top of the hard rock heap.The eight song live performance of straight-up, kick ass guitar charged mayhem is ignited by the thumping bass line of "Live Wire". Clocking in at just under six raging minutes, the crusin' concert intro cut sets the mood for the entire showcase event. With Bon out front commanding the tightly wound set, which features a fat bottom end holding down the lean 'n' mean blues-based rockers, AC/DC dealt out dirty raunch 'n' roll as they have done since day one. Street tough cuts, such as "Problem Child", "High Voltage", "Dog Eat Dog", "The Jack" and "Whole Lotta Rosie", power the amped-up set from the Big Apple. Until AC/DC shipped their first official live album, the molten _If You Want Blood You've Got It_, in '78, I wore down the dubbed _Live From the Atlantic Studios_ C-90 tape to a fray with excessive plays. The wild eyed collection of beer swillin', gutter raunch fueled the weekend party scene.Finally given it's due via the _Bonfire_ box set, the compact disc release of _Live From the Atlantic Studios_, fills a huge void for many fans worldwide of the ass kickin' alternate current rockin' runts.Play it loud for Mister Scott!KNOCK IT BACK!
