A legendary concert that’s long been tricky to track down, AC/DC: Let There Be Rock! has finally got a long overdue disc release. And fortunately, it’s been worth the wait.
The concert was originally released in 1980, but has remained steadfastly hard to get hold of. Let There Be Rock’s arrival on Blu-ray brings with it 13 songs, including some of the band’s finest work. The songs themselves are further interspersed with interviews and backstage material, and it’s been put together extremely well. It positively glistens in high definition-- it’s simply never looked better.
But, inevitably, it’s the performance itself that makes Let There Be Rock so special. This is the work of a very strong set of musicians, at the very top of their game. The concert, and the depiction of it here, is superb, and it’s a genuine musical treat. There’s an argument that, for the disc release, some tidying-up work on the audio wouldn’t have hurt, but given that it’s so long since Let There Be Rock has been available, it’s only a minor quibble.
The key factor here is that an important musical concert has been made properly available at last so that many more generations will be able to enjoy all that Let There Be Rock has to offer.
