Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 20th September!
On the 20th September 1976 the third studio album „‚Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“ by AC/DC was released. But NOT in the USA! The American fans had to wait until 27th March 1981 – one year after the passing of singer Bon Scott and during „Back in Black“ charted worldwide. So it’s not suprising that „‚Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“ has been certified six times Platinum in the United States (sold more than six million copies) after the successful comeback album „Back in Black“ (one of the best selling albums in music history) with new singer Brian Johnson was released just one year earlier in Summer 1980. So „Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“ became the third highest sold AC/DC album in the USA (after „Highway To Hell‚ and ‚Back In Black“).
There are some interesting things about the release of „Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“ – read more about this (different covers, song listings etc.) in my AC/DC category here!
