AC/DC: 'In The Begining' Early Live Recording 'Nothing But A False Rumor'

According to a posting on the AC/DC fan and collectors site AC/DC Highway To Hell, the previously announced bootleg LP containing the earliest known AC/DC recording in existence has turned out to be "nothing more than a glorified rumor created by someone in Europe to cause a stir. Apparently no such recording exists, as something like this would have surfaced many many years ago by now if it did."

The LP, entitled "In the Beginning", was alleged to have been recorded at the Hampton Court Hotel in Sydney, Australia in March 1974 with the lineup of Angus Young (guitar), Malcolm Young (guitar), Dave Evans (vocals), Neil Smith (bass) and Noel Taylor (drums).
