Ok, so the next AC/DC album in my collection is the International Version of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.

My particular copy must be the U.S. version because on the inside cover it says it was originally released on March 23 1981, the first release of the International version was in 1976 according to this Wikipedia article.

Here is a playlist I tried to put together from videos I found on YouTube… but for some reason half of them won’t play inside a playlist? To see all of the videos I found for this album scroll down and watch each one individually.

Produced by Harry Vanda, all of the tracks were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. The band members for this album were…

  • Bon Scott – lead vocals
  • Angus Young – lead guitar
  • Malcolm Young – rhythm guitar, backing vocals
  • Mark Evans – bass guitar, backing vocals
  • Phil Rudd – drums
  • George Young – production and bass guitar on “There’s Gonna Be Some Rockin.”

The tracks on this album include…

  • Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
  • Love at First Feel
  • Big Balls
  • Rocker
  • Problem Child
  • There’s Gonna Be Some Rockin
  • Ain’t No Fun (Waiting ‘Round to Be a Millionaire)
  • Ride On
  • Squealer

The only song recorded on this album that can be found on their previous albums is Rocker, which can also be heard on the Australian version of T.N.T.

I gotta say that listening to these first few albums has been a very nostalgic experience for me, I remember being a kid listening to this stuff, hearing Big Balls for the first time with my mates giggling over the lyrics, when they wrote this song they must have had so much fun.

The CD really starts out strong, with the opening title track for this album hitting you with that huge power chord ringing out from the out set.

if I had to pick out the best tracks that I liked the most they would be…, in no particular order of preference…

  • Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
  • Rocker
  • Problem Child
  • There’s Gonna Be Some Rockin
  • Ain’t No Fun (Waiting ‘Round to Be a Millionaire)
  • Ride On

The art work for this album is completely different from the Australian version, which I am still trying to get my hands on, the front cover image for this album is just below… I bought this copy of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by AC/DC from Second Spin.com for about $6.00.

Unfortunately, the lyrics are really hard to see on the inside CD slip, not sure if because my eyesight is getting worse as I get older or the text is really, really small.
