Ride On

In the early seventies, a school mate with divorced parents would return from visiting his father in Sydney each school holidays. 

Invariably he'd return with AC/DC records, not then available in NZ, which I found astounding. We thrashed them. Wore out the grooves. 

Ride On is a beautifully measured, well-tempered piece. Contemplative, with the honest emotion of boys in a rock band just oozing out of it. 

Angus has never bettered his lead work here - a brilliant follow-through to Bon Scott's scratchy lyrics 3:38 in, echoing an earlier fill, humbuckers humming, fingers flying and, quite rightly here, no care for technical competency over expression.
