From its grizzly premise to its video, everything about “Jailbreak” is pretty perfect. It was first featured on the Australian release of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, but it finally received a proper release in the US, Canada and Japan on the 1984 EP ’74 Jailbreak. (Better late than never.) Also, the bridge is just outstanding: “Heartbeats, they were racing/Freedom, he was chasin’/Spotlights, sirens/Rifles firing/But he made it out...with a bullet in his back.”
