About this deal

Released in July, 1980, Back in Black was the first AC/DC album recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott, who died in February of that year. I found a 1980 Australian pressing with the correct listing on the back, but both UK and US pressings with altered lists.

Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). Back in Black received positive critical reception at the time of its release, and it has since been included on numerous lists of "greatest" albums. By accepting these digital cookies we can suggest and market exactly the kind of records and artists You are interested in. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since. Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the album was released on 25 July 1980 by Albert Productions and Atlantic Records.

If you want to check the colour of the record before you purchase, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. In 1979, they paired with producer Lange and recorded their international breakthrough, Highway to Hell. Closer, 'Rock and Roll Aint Noise Pollution' is another grower and, like 'Night Prowler' from Highway.

If this is the case, this is usually the source of the skipping issue due to the quality of the needle. The track listing on the back, as others have noted, is not actually correct, but this seems true to a lot of original pressings on the album.

Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. They made an excellent choice in selecting Brian Johnson as their new vocalist; while he had the same bluesy edge as Scott, Johnson sang with more power and conviction. As with all the reissues of AC/DC's music, the inner sleeve is printed with information around the making of the album (as well as press photos and newspaper excerpts), which is a nice bonus. We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. We carry a broad range of CDs and vinyl (7”/12” singles and LPs) and specialise in indie, alternative, rock, punk, metal plus a few other genres.

We use adhesives to fix the record in place so you wouldn't be able to play it without ruining the framed display. After years of not knowing what AC/DC track was home to one of the most oft-used riffs (or leads or solos - I never know what this particular one is as it's a bit more involved than a normal riff) that I had heard again and again on tv and on jingles and anything that warranted a cool entrance, I now know that it is 'Back in Black'.

I remember playing the LP for the first time and was exhilerated by the energy and power of all the tracks. Bon Scott’s alcohol-related death in early 1980 couldn’t have come at a worse time for AC/DC; the band was poised for worldwide breakthrough success, as their last album, Highway to Hell, was Angus and company’s first gold-certified stateside release. The album title is embossed on the front, and the band name is, too - whilst also outlined in white. It feels like the guys got all of the songs in one take with each of them staying put on their spot in the studio. In 1979, they paired with producer Lange and recorded their international breakthrough, Highway to Hell.
