AC/DC – If You Want Blood You Got It
Now that I have broken the weird ass sleep schedule, it’s time to get back and the vinyl listening party in my room. Why I couldn’t play my records at 3:34 am on a Thursday in my room? No clue really. I just know I was stuck in an upside-down sleep schedule and I spent most of that time in my bed trying to get back to a normal routine.
Anyway, this morning I’m spinning the 3rd record in my vinyl collection (5th in my CD) AC/DC’s first live record ‘If You Want Blood You Got It’. I Never listened to this album as a kid, in fact, I never owned it until a few years ago when I snatched it up in a ridiculous vinyl offer online. Since I have owned the record, I’ve only listened to it a couple of times. For whatever reason, I wasn’t impressed with it in those first two spins. In fact, I just went back and read the original “review” I wrote back then, which was only a paragraph and didn’t really say much, besides that I really didn’t think it was the band’s best live effort.
Listening to it now, I’m thinking it’s pretty bad ass, so I don’t know what I was thinking back then. Not sure what I was comparing it to, but I seemed to think that AC/DC had better live records than this one. I suppose they do, but that doesn’t take away from that fact that this is a great record and if you’re a fan of the band it should be in your record collection.
