High Voltage by AC/DC (International Version)

The International version of High Voltage by AC/DC was their third studio album and was the bands first internationally released album. It was released on the 28th of September 1976.

I personally think this album, along with T.N.T. are so incredibly good, I find it hard to believe these guys nailed it so early in their careers with most of the tracks on these albums becoming all time Rock classics, such as, It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll), Rock ‘n’ Roll Singer, Live Wire, T.N.T. and High Voltage.

This version of High Voltage went platinum 3 times and has sold more than three million units in the United States alone. Which is not bad for an album that was considered an all time low for rock music by Rolling Stone magazine’s Billy Altman.

Still with the same band members as T.N.T. including…

  • Bon Scott – lead vocals, bagpipes on “It’s a Long Way to the Top”
  • Angus Young – lead guitar, backing vocals on “T.N.T.” [7]
  • Malcolm Young – rhythm guitar, backing vocals
  • Mark Evans – bass guitar, backing vocals
  • Phil Rudd – drums

The album’s track list is almost exactly the same as the Australian version of T.N.T. with the exception of the tracks, Rocker, which has been replaced with Little Lover and School Days (Chuck Berry) which has been replaced with High Voltage.

  1. It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)
  2. Rock ‘n’ Roll Singer
  3. The Jack
  4. Live Wire
  5. T.N.T.
  6. Can I Sit Next to You Girl
  7. Little Lover
  8. She’s Got Balls
  9. High Voltage

I put together a video playlist of the album for you. Wherever possible I tried to find live footage with Bon Scott performing, but some of the tracks are from the studio album and include a slide show of photos taken of Bon.

Just hit the play button once to listen to the entire album.
