More than 40 years since its initial release, Tales Of Old Grand Daddy, the only album from the Marcus Hook Roll Band, is being reissued internationally on a variety of formats and they've given us a taste of the upcoming release.

The band -- featuring AC/DC's Malcolm and Angus Young, and their older brothers Alex and George -- played their brand of bluesy rock and roll in Australia between 1972 and 1974. They only released one LP, which was recorded blackout drunk and only released in Australia. George Young recounts what he can remember from the sessions to Classic Rock Magazine: "We all got rotten (drunk) except Angus, who was too young and we spent a month in the studio boozing it up every night."

You can hear the raucous party throughout the recording of "Quick Reaction," which you can stream above. It's a solid rock and roll track, with a blues influenced riff almost reminiscent of the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman." The most notable things about the song are the guitar tones from Angus and Malcolm that would be pervasive throughout AC/DC's career. Check it out above and stay tuned for the re-release of Tales Of Old Grand Daddy.
