Sonic Reducer

Special AC/DC Quiz Edition

AC/DC Backtracks (Columbia Records)

While I thought “You Shook Me All Night Long” at full volume was the ultimate AC/DC experience, the folks behind this sonic novelty say Backtracks is, in fact, the utmost form of the fundamental Australian rock and roll band. The deluxe collector’s limited edition contains CDs, DVDs, a vinyl LP, a coffee table book, lithographs, a Bon Scott parrot tattoo replica and more, all boxed in a working guitar amplifier. The standard edition (seen here) involves less, but the still exciting contents include a disc of studio rarities, another filled with live rarities, a “Family Jewels Disc Three” DVD and a grip of bonus videos.

Win Backtracks !

One lucky reader can win his or her very own copy of the Backtracks standard edition (parrot tattoo not included). To win, compose your ultimate 10-song, ’70s/early ’80s hard rock playlist and post it as a comment on this article.
