Hard rock Blues rock. It was a brutally simple catch Americans were said to have trouble understanding Bon, and if the people working with the band couldn't make out the lyrics, how was his voice going to work on the all-important U.
Following the American success of Highway to Hell in latecopies of the album began to appear as imports in the US. Some of these were the original Australian edition on Albert Productions; however, Atlantic also pressed the international version in Australia, and many of these were also exported to the US. Strong demand for both versions in the wake of the even greater success of Back in Black led the US division of Atlantic to finally authorize an official US release in March It went straight to No.
The band was working on a new album, which would ultimately become For Those About to Rock We Salute Youreleased later that same year; the US release of Dirty Deeds was widely seen as damaging the momentum for that album, which it outsold. The band was forced to add songs from Dirty Deeds to its setlist on its subsequent tour, also taking the focus away from their new album. At the time, Doug's argument was purely financial.
Back in Black had already sold over five million copies. Because of those numbers, Doug told me Dirty Deeds would sell at least 2 million. God knows how many albums For Those About to Rock would have sold had Doug waited for that to come out. The international release had significant variations from the original album.
Rock in Peace " were jettisoned in favor of "Rocker" from the Australian album T. A promo-only singlewith " Show Business " as its B-sidewas released to radio stations in the US at the time. These appearances included a live performance of the album's title track, as well as a music video for "Jailbreak". Two songs on the international album were edited from the full-length versions on the original Australian album.
The full-length "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" has the title of the song chanted four times, starting atbut on the edited version the chant is heard only twice. This means they trim off the Chuck Berry licks and title chanting to the end; however, both these full-length versions were restored on LP Atco Records remastered CD of the international album.
The most recent CD edition by Epic Records goes back to the edited versions, as originally on the and international vinyl editions. The uncut versions of both songs were released on the box set Backtracks. On the original version of "Rocker", included on the Australian T. Conversely, all international editions of the "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" album have a slightly shorter version where the song fades out at before the cut.
Allmusic gives the album five out of five stars and proclaims "it captured the seething malevolence of Bon Scott The subject matter is standard-issue rock rebellion; Scott pauses only once to briefly contemplate the consequences of his night stalking in 'Ride On.
They were later reverted to the shortened versions for the Epic remastered versions of the album with "Big Balls" remaining in its longer version.
