Apart from the matrix codes, how is this different than: http://www.discogs.com/ACDC-Back-In-Black/release/4450885

Question: The tracklisting on my copy is different than the order that is actually on the record. What's printed on mine is:

Back in Black, Hells Bells, Shoot To Thrill, Given The Dog A Bone, What Do You Do For Money Honey, Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution, Let Me Put My Love Into You, You Shook Me All Night Long, Shake A Leg, Have A Drink On Me. But the actual tracks on the record match this listing.

Is this normal? Do I have a weird copy? Do I have a record that doesn't match the sleeve?

How can you go wrong with this album? Tons of in your face, balls to the walls guitar attitude. If you're a serious music lover then this has to belong in your collection. If you're a serious blues/rock musician then you cannot be without this at all.

First Pressing matrix info:

Side One:
ST-A-804517-A
MASTERDISK RL ▵24799 MR 16018

Side Two:
ST-A-804518-A
MO MASTERDISK 24799x MR

Just because there is an RL in the deadwax, does not indicate a first pressing. The -A is a true indication. This version has the best sound versus -B or -C
