Live is the second album by AC/DC and the first with singer Brian Johnson. It was recorded in 1990 and 1991 – a long time after the classic If You Want Blood You’ve Got It.
After the death of singer Bon Scott, AC/DC recruited ex-Geordie singer Brain Johnson and went on to global popularity with albums like Back In Black and Those About To Rock We Salute You.
What a boring title after their first live album.
