Release Date: Monday 16 November 2009

The ultimate AC/DC collector's experience, bringing together rare songs, hard-to-find live performances and the long-awaited debut of the 'Family Jewels Disc 3' DVD.

'Backtracks' is the ultimate AC/DC collector's experience, spanning the length and breadth of AC/DC's career, bringing together rare songs, hard-to-find live performances and the long-awaited debut of 'Family Jewels Disc 3', a DVD showcasing the group's music videos, live performances, and promotional clips from 1992-2009. (The original double-disc 'Family Jewels' was named 2005's "DVD of the Year" by the UK's Classic Rock magazine while the RIAA certified the collection 10x Platinum for sales in excess of 1 million copies in the US alone.)

Throughout their 35 years of recording, AC/DC has had several tracks that have appeared in a myriad of places besides their official studio albums. From singles to soundtracks to promo samplers, their stray songs have been sought after by fans and highly collectible. Now, for the first time, Backtracks collects 12 of the band's studio rarities and 15 live rarities and presents them in full remastered form to take their place alongside the rest of the band's canon (pun intended…). Includes the highly sought-after "Cold Hearted Man," "Rock In Peace" and "Borrowed Time". Also features "Big Gun" - never before on any AC/DC album!

The third disc brings the million-selling Family Jewels franchise up to date, covering 1993's "Big Gun" through 2009's "Anything Goes". Also included are rare alternate videos for 4 songs as well as the promo clips for the LIVE album AND the previously unreleased "Guns For Hire."
