The Fly on the wall album was launched back in 1985, the year that saw a new drummer and a new feel to the bands style of music. The Album does not rate high in the ranks with the AC/DC faithful, but i liked the sound of the album. Tracks on the "Fly on the wall" DVD/Video are great to the ear, but the Director of the video was poor. Angus Young memorably walking out on set labelling the videos showing them in a poor light. The running of the Video is under 30mins and can be watched on AC/DC Family box set 2003. Tracking down an Original of the FLY ON THE WALL VHS could prove tricky, but not really worth the bother. I am a huge fan of AC/DC and would never like to put them in a bad light because they are too good. Although, i'm afraid that the FLY ON THE WALL VIDEO is poor. I have rated it high, but my vote is only strictly on the sounds of on VHS/DVD, not the visuals. They have produced some fantastic videos to get down rocking to. I would give it a look, but beware any person who was wondering who AC/DC were would see this video as sheer non-sense. They have produced better ones. The final track is the best,"Shake your Foundations" where the sounds coming from Angus, Malcolm and Cliff on guitars create havoc and the smashing drumming from Simon Wright really gets the house wobbling, then the excellent, rich and powerful vocals from front man Brian Johnson brings the place crashing down, it is clear that the band are having a great time in filming the final track, probably because they know that after that they could escape and record the next album for Stephen Kings "Maximum Overdrive" film titled "Who made who". I hope that this has helped anyone who is thinking of viewing an AC/DC vid and choosing this one for a first...i would recommend Videos like "Heatseeker", "You shook me all night long" and my favourite live track "Lets get it up"...Buy the AC/DC DVD from Amazon called "The Family Jewells" this is the best official way to follow the band.
