Watch Bon Scott Perform in His Pre-AC/DC Band
A new video featuring rare footage and performance from Bon Scott before he joined AC/DC is now available. Blue Pie Records has released ‘Round and Round and Round,’ a music-video archive featuring the late singer.
According to Brave Words, ‘Round and Round and Round’ was recorded in 1974 with the Australian band the Mount Lofty Rangers mere weeks before Scott joined AC/DC. The group also included fellow Down Under rockers Jimmy Barnes and Glenn Shorrock.
In 1996, writer Peter Head and Sydney musician Ted Yanni started work on the cut, which included Scott’s vocal track. The pair began assembling musicians to pull together a new backing track. You can listen to the song, as well as watch vintage video of Scott, above.
Other pre-AC/DC songs by Scott (who passed away after a long night of boozing in 1980) have surfaced in the past, but this is the first time this version of ‘Round and Round and Round’ has been heard. In addition to ‘Round and Round and Round’ — which is now available on iTunes — more recently unearthed Scott material, including rare photos, can be found here.
