Blimey! That was a quick listen!

The joys of having having a turntable and a fax machine combined in one I suppose.

Heehee, alright. Thanks for the pointer - I shall inspect...

The turntable would imply non-remastered 1980 LP, I suppose?

Back in Black does indeed sound great on vinyl. But so do Powerage and Highway to Hell.

Highway to Hell or Back in Black, yup.

Though obviously as a Kirriemuir boy I have a fondness for Bon Scott-era.......

Re: Best-recorded AC/DC album?

Very good question.


1. Highway To Hell        perfect combination of an album that`s both well produced and with just the right amount of `nitty gritty`.


2. Power Age      pretty smooth/clean (yes smooth!) production for an AC/DC album but it works well with the riffs on offer. `Riff Raff` is just gritty enough but sounds even better live on `If You Want Blood`.


3. Back In Black      producer deserves a Grammy for the production of `Hells Bells` and `Given The Dog A Bone` (monster riff!) alone!


If you can produce albums like `Highway` and `Back In Black` then you too could pull a bird like Shania Twain!

Both the freshly remastered " Back in Black"  and "the razors edge" sound superb to me. My vote goes to "Back in black" though. All great songs, not one out of place. It is one of my all time favorites.

No, I haven't got a supernait. If I had one I'd show it off in my sig!

The Hughes chat-up lines clearly needed more work...

I'm not too sure if Hughesy was just responding to a very titilating persona himself.ÿ

Tintillate? Have to search that in the free dictionary.

tit£il£late play_w2("T0236800")

 (ttl-t)

v. tit£il£lat£ed, tit£il£lat£ing, tit£il£lates
v.tr.
1. To stimulate by touching lightly; tickle.
2. To excite (another) pleasurably, superficially or erotically.

v.intr. To excite another, especially in a superficial, pleasurable manner:

 Am I right in thinking you meant I was a little blunt? I actually thought Hughes made quite a smart guess. I believe naim is well regarded as a rock 'n roll system. AC/DC, rock 'n roll. 1+1= 3, eh? Well, almost. Maybe somewhere in the future, I'll feel flush enough to spend that much on an amp.

A rollercoaster in itself.
