AC/DC/AC/DC - Back In Busniess bootleg


Hello. I have some questions regarding different presses of the high valuable bootleg Back In Business. It contains live recordings from Norway and Sweden during the Fly On The Wall tour. As far as I can confirm (I own them), it exists three different presses: the black, the red/orange and the yellow.

From what I have read on the Internet and in Record Collector July 2009, it does exists one alternative transparent yellow with inner sleeve, and a red/orange signed (signatures pressed onto vinyl).

Can you confirm/debunk that there does exists two different yellow presses, and same with the orange/red copy?

Hello Magnus,

Thank you for your question. The Record Collector article was written by me, and can confirm that the transparent-yellow with inner sleeve version does exist, however I do not have any indication as to how many. To the best of my knowledge, the red/orange version with signatures pressed is a misconception, and is actually legitimate autographs of the band on the record that were obtained by a fan on that copy (and not an actual pressed record with autograph reprints on it).
