The band AC/DC is rock and roll royalty and one of Australia’s most successful musical exports. AC/DC was formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers, Angus and Malcolm Young (1953–2017). High Voltage was AC/DC’s debut studio album, released in Australia on 17 February 1975. The album took only 10 days to record and was produced at Albert Studios in Sydney, Australia by elder brother George Young (1946–2017) and Harry Vanda, George’s bandmate in the Easybeats. Including the single “Baby, Please Don’t Go”, the album was a success, though its sound was not yet the hard-hitting, yet down-to-earth, riff-filled rock that would elevate AC/DC to legend status in Australia and eventually the world. High Voltage is also the name of the band’s first international album release, in 1976, though with a different song list.
