The other day someone (Brian to be specific) asked about ancient AC/DC recordings, I didn't have a
lot, just a BBC session that he may or may not have already had....but in that post I also mentioned my friend Alan, who is an AC/DC obsessive (Seen them 12 times) and he promised to share a couple of rarities with us.......this is his first contribution, and I know that at least I have not heard it....
The Marcus Hook Roll Band gave us the album "Tales of Old Granddad" in 1973......this is the Young brothers, Angus and Malcolm, of course later of AC/DC fame, also guitarist George Young (relationship, unsure), sax wailer Alex Young (ditto), bassist Freddie Smith, and drummer Ian Campbell........hey I NEVER said this was a GREAT album, but with the interest that has always existed with this band (AC/DC, I mean), any rarity submitted is almost as good as double coupons at Kroger-day.
Here it is.......for those about to rock.......FIRE!........I guess so.......
MARCUS HOOK ROLL BAND-TALES OF OLD GRANDDAD-01 Natural Man/02 Louisiana
lady/03 Shot In the Head/04 Can't Stand the Heat/05 Godbye Jane/06 Quick Reaction/07 The People and the Power/08 Red Revolution/09 Cry For Me/10 Silver SHoes and Strawberry Wine/11 Watch Her Do It Now/12 Ape Man
REALLY like to hear comments on this one....NEVER a huge AC/DC fan, but certainly DID enjoy at least, their most obnoxious material..........this is the bare/raw bones of what would eventually sell millions of albums (gag) and begat stuff like "Highway to Hell" and "Hells Bells"........gosh don't you just love life sometimes?
