“Let There Be Rock”

, the AC/DC Concert documentary that was filmed December 1979 at the Pavillion De Paris, will finally receive its long-awaited DVD release in June (postponed from the previously announced January). Eddie Trunk, the co-host of the VH1 Classic tv program “That Metal Show”, was interviewed about the band’s impact for one of the DVD’s bonus features. He wrote last year on his blog, “[The company which is releasing the DVD is] doing some cleanups to the audio and video and making it as high-def as the source will allow.” He added, “I can tell you I have an advance and it looks and sounds great, but they are making it even better!”

According to the All Music Guide, “Let There Be Rock” was released in France a year after it was filmed, though American release was delayed until well after the band had established themselves in the States with new vocalist Brian Johnson and the multi-platinum success of the “Back In Black” album.

In his review of the original “Let There Be Rock” film, Fred Beldin of the All Music Guide wrote, “Director Eric Dionysis captures the excitement of the live show with an energetic style and effective close-up shots, though the staged interviews and sub-‘The Song Remains The Same’ fantasy sequences show the band to be bemused but not convinced by these attempts to add some arty depth to the proceedings. The highlight of the extracurricular segments is Bon Scott, radiating warmth and humility in these last interviews before his untimely death at age 33 from alcohol poisoning.”
