I’m likin’ these new AC/DC reissues…the pack­ag­ing could be a lit­tle bet­ter (“Dirty Deeds” omits the lyrics) but they are worth it for the old pho­tos and the online videos you can “unlock” with each disc.  The vid for ”If You Want Blood” is one of the great­est things I’ve ever seen.

Reis­sues seem to make up most of my music pur­chases lately…in the last cou­ple of years it’s been the Clash, Elvis Costello, Gary Wil­son, The Stones, Pave­ment, Nick Drake, Camper Van Beethoven, KISS, Van Halen, Vel­vet Under­ground, ESG, Love, De La Soul, the Flam­ing Lips, the Ramones, etc.  Soon there’s gonna be more AC/DC, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Nirvana,…I’m still wait­ing for the Bea­t­les, Dylan, and for fuck’s sake, the world needs a giant Pix­ies box set, just like that VU one, but even better…

Maybe there’ll even be a Bag of Panties reis­sue someday…
