Now, whether you know it or not, this is a controversial one. In the sense that, some folks believe this version was not at all recorded during the actual live show held somewhere in 1978 in Glasgow (and several dates at that); rather, they think it may be just an alternate version from some takes made in the studio at the time of recording studio album “Let There Be Rock”.
Whether or not you believe this to be true – I am personally in Read more >
Now, this one I had already covered, like two or three eons ago. Seems like a few entire generations passed since then – it’s the passage of time under the effect of the internet(s); it makes time flow differently.
This is the old version, with a few details here. Not entirely a disaster, but not as accurate as I had wanted it to be, even at the time.
This the newer version (youtube; if blocked in your country, please scroll to the bottom):

Well it is about time to write some details in this white space no? Read more >
While we already knew that the Schaffer-Vega Diversity System had been used on Powerage (first studio album where it got used, actually), speaking with Angus the other day (yeah, right) gave me additional gas to go and play Powerage stuff. Here to you. First Powerage Video of the Schaffer Replica series, and also a song I had never covered on video previously. Great song, naturally (like most of this era if you ask me). Better get it right, right?
Just as a reminder of my theory (that finds recount on the “AC/DC in the Studio” book), this album was entirely played – by Angus Read more >
AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long” With a Marshall YJM & The Schaffer Replica (Audio/Video Update)
You know me (at least a bit) and therefore understand that not too long has to pass for me to go back to my personal holy grail, that being the “Back in Black” sound. But I attempted this time with a slightly different ingredient (a few actually) this including a new (bought used) Marshall YJM (Yngwie Malmsteen signature amp) and – in the recording process – a Peluso P67 microphone, supposedly being an “inspired by” microphone – a clone of a Neumann U67, basically.
My own vintage Neumann U67 in fact is being checked as it started to saturate at medium volume – something it is not supposed to be doing, and with a vintage microphone of this caliber (considered by many as “THE” microphone) I better take good care of it.
Updated Audio/Video Version on our Server:
AC/DC’s “For Those About To Rock (Album Compilation of Covers)”, The Schaffer Replica™ Series (SoloDallas covers)
I am going to try and compile here – this time – the covers that refer to For Those About To Rock.
Just for ease of access really, and to try and keep what I write in a sole place so that you don’t have to go picking up stuff around in bits and pieces.
NOT that I think what I have to say is SO important after all. So the big chunk I am going to say it right after the first three covers. Enjoy.

With this one I wanted to do something slightly different than the previous two songs: use the TSR™ the whole time. Would it be accurate, fair and sound good all at the same time? I don’t know, let’s evaluate it together item by item. Please keep in mind that if you are interested in recreating the Highway To Hell sound you should also read the two previous entries, here: Read more >
