AC/DC Highway - Inside the Tour by Robert Ellis Bon Voyage - On the road with Bon
There are already a lot of AC/DC biographies that have dealt with the Bon Scott era. But no book has to offer so much unpublished visual material as the one by the former band photographer Robert Ellis. The Londoner was working in this business since the end of the sixties and also worked closely with all the relevant bands of the seventies. The small man with the big glasses accompanied these Australians for several years, starting at the time of "quotHighway to Hell". His single bag cover of the single "Touch Too Much" is unforgettable. It was printed in its first edition back to front!, or the back of the single sleeve that shows the band from a bird´s eye perspective. Ellis was not only a photographer taking pictures of the band but also had a direct connection to the band, particularly to Bon Scott. You definitely recognise this. In this picture book you get a documentary of the "Highway to Hell" tour from the festival gig with The Who in the summer of 1979 to the last gig in Southampton, end of January 1980. For Scott fans this is a must, because here you see the singer once more close up and intimate. It is fitting for the 35th anniversary of his death. You can buy it for £85.00 plus shipping from www.repfoto.com.

This is the fantastic Robert Ellis Highway inside the tour book I received this morning. Full of great quality unseen photo's on quality paper encased in a quality book cover. Honest and truthful text (unlike some other books) as he was on the Highway to hell tour with them. Thank you for sharing your memories of being on tour with AC/DC with the fans Robert.

Wauu I miss words. This is GREAT! What a fantastic historic manifest of Bon Scott and AC/DC. It takes me back to my childhood when it all began. I didn’t have videos of the band just pics and the music of. This book is pure and true art for a fan. I’m already looking forward for the next one with Brian and the next….Take care Robert Ellis….and I thank you so much. Leo from Denmark

Please let me know when the Back In Black book is ready. I will be your first customer. Stellar work. Thanks again! Randy - from Northern California, USA

I have long admired this book. Wanting to see all the great unseen pictures and texts that lay hidden in pages, that realistically I never ever thought I would be privileged enough to see. Now, I can bask in the best book on AC/DC and their glory years, that I will treasure for the rest of my life. A very emotional moment for me right now as I write this to you. To me this book is like Carter opening the tomb of Tutankhamen for the first time, and seeing long lost priceless artefacts from a different time that were thought lost forever. So again I Thank you. I cannot wait to show William Young this beautiful book, he will love it. Thanks again and best wishes
Shaun from Queensland, Australia.
