I've always wanted a "best of" from AC/DC but I think this may be a bit overkill for the casual fan.

agreed 100% deathbringer. what casual, or for that matter, what serious fan has 200 dollars to shell out on ac/dc? who in 2009 needs to purchase a record?? i don't play electric guitar either, so i really don't need a case that is also a working amp. i hope this comes in a basic, stripped down, more affordable version.

Spiral: I'm willing to bet that the LP and amp will probably go for big bucks in about ten more years so even if you can't play them; you can at least recoup your cost on Ebay.

^^^^True that BG1, for me though, I'd like to hear the "Previously unreleased tracks"......anything from early AC/DC usually turns out to be damn good.
