In the early days, AC/DC first worked with production team Vanda and Young (Harry Vanda and George Young), recording their albums at Albert Studios in Sydney, Australia. AC/DC’s first 5 studio albums, and 1978’S live “If You Want Blood You’ve Got It” were all produced by Vanda & Young.
In 1979, AC/DC started working with former Jimi Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer at the recommendation of the record label, however the band did not approve of the results so they searched for a new producer. AC/DC would choose then fairly new producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange to produce “Highway To Hell”, which would become AC/DC’s first platinum selling album by the end of 1979. AC/DC would continue with Lange for the next 2 albums “Back In Black” and “For Those About To Rock We Salute You” respectively. AC/DC took on the production task themselves for 1983’s “Flick Of The Switch” album, and Angus and Malcolm Young would produce 1985’s “Fly On The Wall. By 1986 AC/DC saw the return of Vanda and Young to produce “Who Made Who” as well as 1988’s “Blow Up Your Video” album.
Bruce Fairbairn would be the producer at the helm for “The Razors Edge” and “AC/DC Live”, Rick Rubin produced the “Ballbreaker” album, and Vanda and Young would be back again for 1997’s “Bonfire” box set release. George Young would singly return to produce “Stiff Upper Lip”, and AC/DC’s latest studio release, 2008’s “Black Ice” album was produced by Brendan O’Brien.
