Hm.

They went with the international versions instead of the Australian versions of the early Bon Scott albums. Bummer.

Plus, I'm betting these are the Sony masters, which have some edits and early fade-outs in some songs from the early albums.

Options include the full studio collection for $99.99, while an expanded digital box set with rarities, demo tracks and four live albums is available for $149.99.

That's a lot of money for one song.

Yeah, that's what made the price so hard to swallow...

I gotta admit it's one hell of a song though.

In an interview last year, guitarist Angus Young said listening to their songs as part of a complete album was the "best way" to hear them.

Because AC/DC albums and tracks are unique and deserve to take you on a music journey to different places.

As long as those places are all in the same seedy dive bar right before last call.
 
2012-11-19 04:04:52 PM
Come on, it's not fair to say they only have one song, it's really more like two songs: The bluesy-rock one and the pop-rock one.

I've said it before but I think Nickleback would make a great cover band.

Anyone know who the "last major iTunes hold-outs" are?

Interesting. I know they've had TOR / RENT for awhile now, so I am not sure why I should care.

I was going to ask the same question.  I thought the Beatles were the last.  I already have all the AC/DC mp3's I'll ever need (not a huge fan), so I never thought to look them up.
 
2012-11-19 04:23:04 PM
Listening to the 90 second previews now.. much better sounding than the MP3s I got off Limewire about a decade ago. I may get an album or two later.
 
2012-11-19 04:25:34 PM
What's the point. Everybody in the world already owns "Back in Black," which, save for a few Bon Scott tunes and a couple of tracks from "Razor's Edge," is all the AC/DC tunes anyone needs.

Throw in a few tracks from Highway to Hell, then add Thunderstruck and that's about it.

It's the thing that bugs me about early AC/DC. I mean, there's 10 albums but the three of them have two versions of them, more or less. They did 55 songs and 33 are repeated ("Problem Child" is on three albums, mostly so they could get away with not putting "Crabsody in Blue" on the international version of Let There Be Rock. ) It's honestly why someone like me would want them to one day do a greatest hits album, just so I'm sure I got all the songs.

I 'm one of those old f*cks that has most of their albums on vinyl, cassette and CD so I'm getting kick.

CSB time:

I actually first listened to most of AC/DC's 70s catalog on 8 track, despite coming of age in the early 90s. Back in high school, my first car was a 1979 Olds Delta 88 with a working 8 track. I was over at my retired neighbor's house one day in 1991 and noticed he had a great collection of 70s hard rock 8 tracks, early AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, and ZZ Top. As I was checking them out, he mentioned that those were his son's and he hadn't touched them in almost a decade, and he said I could have them if I wanted. I took him up on the offer, and wound up with a box full of classic hard rock in my car. It was awesome, despite "Ride On" fading out in the middle because it was split between two tracks due to the length of the song.

/Still have great memories of driving around with "Ride On" cranking on the stereo while I heeded the siren call of the open road.

A friend of mine used to go down to their warehouse in Dandenong where they would practice and enjoy a free concerts.

Def Leppard is (sort of) on that list, but not really voluntarily. Universal wasn't paying them what they thought was a fair share of royalties for digital downloads. However, the band's contract gave them final say over how their music is released, so they told Universal to EABOD. (You can buy some re-recorded versions of a couple of their hits, and a few of the actual music videos, but none of the studio versions in audio format.)

Bob Seger is also a little bit of a holdout, as none of his studio albums are on iTunes. However, there is a greatest hits on iTunes that features most of his hits.

I think Prince only counts as a holdout as far as his recent releases. All of his Warner Bros output (ie, the stuff the average person knows) is there.

Others (some mentioned already): Tool, Kid Rock, Garth Brooks, King Crimson

Well, besides the ones already named ITT, the albums Black Sabbath did with Ozzy Osbourne aren't on itunes. That's all I can think of at the moment.

iTunes got me so turned off of their BS I went back to WMP to play some off my ripped music.

Actually happier for it; of course, I'd be even happier is someone actually came out with a 64 gig player not named iPod touch.

/Sony actually had one
