High-Voltage Rock 'n' Roll: The Ultimate Illustrated History written by Phil Sutcliffe

Review by Gary Hill

I’d have to say that this is one instance when you really can judge a book by its cover. The cover to this book features this cool little spinning turntable picture of Angus Young that can be spun around. It’s a classy touch, and that is an indication of just how classy a product this is.

First off, the book itself is extremely comprehensive in documenting the history of AC/DC. Casual fans and real AC/DC fanatics both will likely learn something here. The whole thing is assembled in a way that features many, many killer photographs. It makes for a book that’s as fun to scan through perusing the pics and reading the little excerpts that are used as highlights on the pages, as it is to sit down and read it cover to cover. That makes it a book that is great for those with short periods of time to read and long windows set aside. All in all, this book is highly recommended to AC/DC fans. It’s really a class act!

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2011  Volume 1 at
