AC/DC Albums To Remastered And Rereleased

AC/DC's upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be accompanied by a plethora of CD and video projects from across the group's career.
Epic Records, which recently signed AC/DC following its tenures with the Atlantic and EastWest labels, will begin remastering and reissuing the quintet's catalog next month. The first rereleases, are due February 18, including 1976's High Voltage (with liner notes by rock journalist Murray Engelheart), 1979's Highway To Hell (liner notes by Ernie Welch), 1980's Back In Black (liner notes by Rolling Stone magazine's David Fricke), 1981's Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (liner notes by Rolling Stone David Wild), and both the single- and double-disc editions of 1992's AC/DC Live (liner notes by Don Kaye).
On March 25, Epic will reissue 1977's Let There Be Rock, 1978's Powerage, 1981's For Those About To Rock We Salute You, 1986's Who Made Who, and 1990's The Razor's Edge.
Epic will release the rest of AC/DC's catalog later in the spring, although EastWest will retain rights to 1995's Ballbreaker and 2000's Stiff Upper Lip.
Besides the new liner notes, all of the albums will feature remastered sound, expanded track information, and more photos, as well as a featured dubbed ConnecteD, which will give buyers access to a special website with additional extra features.
Meanwhile, Image Entertainment is planning a February 18 release for Rock Masters, a 42-minute DVD from a 1977 AC/DC concert at the Hippodrome in London that features "Let There Be Rock," "Problem Child," "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be," and "Rocker."
