Background: Powerage, released in 1978, was the fifth album by AC/DC, and the fourth to receive worldwide distribution. It was also their last album before becoming truly famous, as the follow-up to this LP was 1979’s Highway to Hell.
Powerage only reached #133 on the U.S. album charts, but it was eventually certified as platinum by the RIAA for sales of more than one million units.
Allmusic.com gave Powerage a 3 1/2 star review:
Powerage was a first in the sense that it debuted bassist Cliff Williams, but it really is more of a final curtain to the band’s early years. It would be the last produced by Vanda & Young, the legendary Australian production team who also helmed hits by the Easybeats, and it was the last before AC/DC became superstars. As such, it’s perhaps the most overlooked of their ’70s records, also because, frankly, it is the most uneven of them. Not that it’s a bad record — far from it, actually.
