AC/DC
The Massachusetts Massacre 1978 [Hobo Railways HB067, 1CD]

Live at the Paradise Theatre, Boston, MA; August 21, 1978. Very good FM broadcast.

Australian Bon Scott was best known for being the lead vocalist and lyricist of AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980. He was 33.

+ + + + +

A superb AC/DC live broadcast recording from a gig performed by the group on August 21, 1978 at the Boston Paradise Theatre, Massachusetts, in the area known as New England in the North East of the country. Performed during the band’s second American tour and just as they were on the cusp of huge success stateside, and across Europe too - most notably in the UK - having by this time already hit big back home in Australia. The band were touring in support of their Powerage album, AC/DC’s forth internationally distributed studio album, released worldwide in May ’78 through Atlantic. Powerage was the first record Cliff Williams played on after replacing Mark Evans on bass in mid-1977.
