Although it wasn't released stateside until '81, DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP is an Australian compilation recorded in the mid-70's. By the time of its U.S. release, singer Bon Scott had already died of alcohol poisoning and the band had emerged from the tragedy with new singer Brian Johnson and the stunning BACK IN BLACK. This album then, perhaps inadvertently, serves as an epitaph for the late, tattoo-emblazoned singer. And there is no more fitting eulogy than the title track, which captures Scott in all his raunchy glory.
Full of ill will, Scott snakes his way through a nasty tale of revenge. He's only too happy to provide TNT, concrete, cyanide, whatever it takes really, to get the job done. As he snarls, growls, and finally squeals, "high voltage!" Scott is immortalized in complete reptilian glee. Though the title tracks alone makes the album essential; there are other significant merits. The utterly tasteless hilarity of "Big Balls" is a not-so-subtle pun Beavis and Butthead would undoubtedly have worshipped. "Ride On" is a toned down blouse groove that is complete out of step with AC/DC's usual onslaught. All in all, DIRTY DEEDS is a fine collection that shows these Australian bad boys doing what they do best.
Q (10/94, p.134) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...DIRTY DEEDS...continued to pursue their twin preoccupations, namely the rock`n'roll lifestyle...and schoolboy filth..."
One of the earlier cd’s of AC/DC. Includes the concert staple title track “Dirty Deeds”. This like all the others, is a great album of AC/DC with fast-paced songs like Rocker to some slower songs like Ride On showing a bit of the bands diversity. For someone thinking of buying an AC/DC album, this would be one of the first you should look at getting as it shows the bands true brilliance.
This album is a great listen, with Bon Scott on vocals AC/DC really fire on all cylinders on this one. Containing classic AC/DC songs such as 'Squealer','Big Balls','Problem Child' and of course the title track 'Dirty Deals Done Dirt Cheap' this album is a great addition to your CD collection especially if your a fan of AC/DC. Some great rock music on this one!
