AC/DC's 'Family Jewels' Was Australia's Top-Seling Music DVD In 2005

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, AC/DC's "Family Jewels" was Australia's top-selling DVD in 2005. The veteran hard rock band was one of several artists — alongside KYLIE MINOGUE, THE EAGLES, ROBBIE WILLIAMS, U2, QUEEN and ROD STEWART — to have two DVDs in the top-40 DVD chart.

In the first half of the year, sales of CDs, records, cassettes and music DVDs in Australia fell by 7.54 per cent on the previous year, to 22.7 million units. The full year figures will be released in early 2006.

"Family Jewels", which debuted at No. 1 on DVD charts in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Norway and Austria, is the band's first-ever documentary collection of early television performances, video clips and never-before-seen footage. Disc One is devoted to the Bon Scott era and dates back to an early appearance on television show "Countdown", with AC/DC performing "Baby Please Don't Go", featuring Bon Scott in a schoolgirl uniform. Disc Two centers around Brian Johnson. It captures a 10-year era from the "Back In Black" album in 1980 and finishes with the "Are You Ready" clip from 1991.
