There is another way to see if its an original.
The cover is made from pretty thick cardboard that is grey on the backside(inside of cover)
Never seen a counterfeit with that. Have seen counterfeits with correct matrix etching and so on.

I'm bummed that mine doesn't have the letter. Maybe it's just a counterfeit, although I bought it back in the 70's. It has all the other markings and the post card, however.

re: the official cd from the bonfire box set. the start and ending have been taken from vinyl as the master tapes are not complete anymore (partly erased). PLUS: ca. 1 minute of "rocker" (one of the very best versions EVER!) has been edited out - shame on the guy who was in charge of that!!! so i'm glad i still have the original promo, 'cause that's ac/dc at their crackin' best!

You will also find the CD version in the 1997 Bonfire Box Set. I can hear a small crack at the start, hence I presume it's vinyl origins...

Great music!

Raw and raucous. A divine piece of garage rock 'n' roll. The vinyl is just a gem of warm, devil may care, grooves and grins.
