AC/DC - High Voltage

High Voltage is the first internationally-released album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released in May 1976. Eight of the album's nine songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Bon Scott. "Can I Sit Next to You Girl" was written by Young & Young.
Originally released on Atlantic Records, this edition of High Voltage has proven popular, selling 3 million units in the United States alone. However, the album was panned by some critics upon its release, including a review by Rolling Stone magazine that called it an "all-time low" for the hard rock genre. It was re-released in 2003 as part of the AC/DC Remasters series.


The international version of High Voltage bears almost no relation to the Australian release. It is a compilation of songs from AC/DC's first two Australian studio albums, with only two tracks from the original High Voltage (released February 1975) and seven from T.N.T. (released December 1975).
This edition of High Voltage also has a strikingly different cover than the original, marking the first AC/DC album cover to prominently feature Angus Young. Additionally, a third cover (see image) was used on the international version's original European release.
