One of the early '70s hottest rock bands, Newcastle's Geordie were fronted by Brian Johnson, who went on to even greater fame as vocalist for AC/DC when he replaced the lateBon Scott. This 24 track retrospective combines singles and key album tracks, plus their entire final album, 1976's 'Save The World'. Includes 'Don't Do That', 'Francis Was A Rocker', 'Ain't It Just Like A Woman' & 'Can You Do It'. 1996 release on Repertoire.
Save The World PLUS
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This digitally remastered compilation has been released in Germany by Repertoire Records. It contains Geordie's singles A's and B's released for the period 1972 - 1975, a few album tracks PLUS their third original album SAVE THE WORLD in its entirety (released in 1976) though not completely in its original running order. This is the only place where one can find SAVE THE WORLD on CD because this album never saw the light of day on CD being released individually. It might have been a definitive overview of this British glam-rock band formed in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1972 if only such favourites as their version of THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN and ROCKIN' WITH BOYS TONIGHT were included, but they weren't regrettably. Anyway, RECOMMENDED for all glam-rock fans, especially for SLADE fans. A 1996 Repertoire Records release, extended booklet with well written liner notes and black & white photos of the band."
For die-hard AC/DC fans

"Everything is on this album, even a reggae song. This album gives you an idea why AC/DC hired Brian Johnson to replace Bon Scott. Brian Johnson could sing anything at that stage of his career. He still has a wide range as he has proven by his recent work with Geordie. This is an excellant release for any ac/dc fan that has ever wondered where Brian came from. The vocals on this album make it worth buying. The screaming is at a minimum. And the listener gets to hear how great a voice Brian Johnson has. The best tracks on this are, Save The World, Fire Queen, Can You Do It, and Going Down. The most interesting tracks are, Light In My Window, and I Cried Today.
This album is a must for AC/DC fans, even though the songs are inconsistent. With 24 songs, there is alot of inferior material. But there are enough good songs to make up for that.
If you like this album, then You should buy Brian Johnson & Geordie:Keep On Rocking, it is a better release, with alot less mediocre songs to fill space."
