THE RAZORS EDGE is the 13th Australian and 12th international studio album by hard rockers AC/DC, released on September 21, 1990. It is the only studio album to feature drummer Chris Slade. The album reached No. 2 on the United States Billboard 200 and No. 4 in the United Kingdom. A smash commercial success that returned the band to the popularity of its glory years between the mid-1970''s and early 1980''s, the album has been certified quintuple platinum (5 million copies sold) in the U.S. Malcolm Young, having completed his rehabilitation for alcoholism, once again played rhythm guitar and co-wrote (with his brother Angus) all the songs on the album.
Hard rockers AC/DC recorded BLOW UP YOUR VIDEO (1988) with their original producers, Harry Vanda and George Young. It was a commercial success and sold more copies than the previous two studio releases combined. The BLOW UP YOUR VIDEO WORLD TOUR began in February 1988, in Perth, Australia. That April, following live appearances across Europe, Malcolm Young announced that he was taking time off from touring, principally to begin recovery from his alcoholism. Another member of the Young family, their nephew, Stevie Young, temporarily took Malcolm''s place on rhythm guitar. Following the tour, drummer Simon Wright left the group to work on the upcoming Dio album LOCK UP THE WOLVES, and was replaced by session veteran Chris Slade. Lead singer Brian Johnson was unavailable for several months while finalising his divorce, so the Young brothers wrote all the songs for the next album, a practice they continued for all subsequent releases through BLACK ICE in 2008.
The new album, THE RAZORS EDGE, was recorded in Vancouver, Canada, and produced by Bruce Fairbairn, who had previously worked with Aerosmith and Bon Jovi. A major comeback for the band, THE RAZORS EDGE included the hits "Thunderstruck" and "Are You Ready", which reached No. 5 and No. 16 respectively on Billboard''s Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart, and "Moneytalks", which peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Several shows on THE RAZOR''S EDGE TOUR were recorded for the 1992 live album, titled LIVE. LIVE was produced by Fairbairn, and is considered one of the best live albums of the 1990''s. It was during this tour that AC/DC headlined THE MONSTERS OF ROCK SHOW, which was released on DVD as LIVE AT DONINGTON.
