Van Halen Bootleg Discography
=============================
Last Updated: March 1, 2017 - 15:50:00 Central time

Notes about this Discography:
-----------------------------
o  This Discography was started near the end of March 1994 by a member of the
   Van Halen Mailing List (then at Cornell University) as a service to the
   mailing list.
o  I saw a need to list and keep track of all the Van Halen bootlegs that have
   been issued over the years.
o  This list is by no means complete and I rely upon other people to provide
   information on the bootleg recordings that they have or have seen.
o  Back in the beginning, this (text) version of this list was posted once
   a week to the Van Halen Mailing List if there had been changes since the
   last posting, but it eventually grew too big to be posted, so now it's
   only available via on the web (http://www.vhboots.com/vh_boot_txt.html).
o  I've tried to keep the titles in order, using the year of recording as
   criteria.
o  Mail submissions to: ron(at)vhboots(dot)com
   or post them to the mailing list.

Note about the titles:  Yes, there are two "USA 1986" recordings listed.
                        They look the same, but were released by different

                        of the recordings.
                        Yes, there are two "City Nights" recordings

                        Yes, there are two "Slummin' It!" recordings

                        Yes, there are two "Die Laughing" recordings
                        listed.  The CD claims to be remastered from the LP.
                        Yes, there are two "Midnight Cash" recordings
                        listed.  One is an LP and the other is a CD.
                        Yes, there are two "Diamond Dave Goes Home Again"
                        recordings listed.  One is 1 disc, the other is 2.
                        Yes, there are two "Caught in the Act!" recordings

                 Total Time - 70:32
Notes:
  a) The front and back cover is printed on parchment paper and is
     in full color.
  b) The front features a color picture of the band (circa 1986) and has
     the *old* VH logo super-imposed over the picture.
  c) The rear cover has a picture of the band (circa 1986) and has the
     song titles super-imposed over the top 1/4 of the cover with a small
     VH logo (early years) on the bottom left hand side. There is a UPC
     code at the bottom right hand side and it claims that all the songs
     are DDD (as opposed to ADD).
  d) The inside front cover features small pictures (1 of Eddie and 2 of
     Sammy) with the song listings but what's different is if you look
     closely the whole inside front cover is a picture of Dave and Eddie in
     concert (circa 1979). It also has a small discography at the bottom.
  e) When you open the inside front cover it lists the songs again on the
     left side and displays the VH logo on the right side.
  f) The disc itself is a 2 shaded red disc.
  g) The sound quality is EXCELLENT and seems to have no *generation* loss.
     Levels are peaked (but not distorted) and the sound is full and rich.
  h) Closer examination of the sound reveals that the audio has been retouched
     by the addition of simulated stereo effects.  While usually pleasing to
     the ear, it would be hard to listen to with headphones.  The beginning
     of "Dance the Night Away" is where it is most noticable.
  i) Track 9 (Jump) and Track 10 (Panama) a slightly combined.  A mastering
     mistake has Track 10 starting in the middle of Panama.  The whole song
     is there, but it starts inside Track 9.  In addition, the beginning of
     Panama is slightly messed up.  That is the only flaw on this disc.

Notes:
  a) Very nice, glossy artwork.
  b) The songs on this disc represent classic Van Halen songs that a
     grouping of fans said that they'd like to hear again, live in concert.
     The best known recordings of these songs were then gathered and remastered
     into the above set.
  c) All of the recordings are very very good, and the transition between
     songs is smooth.  So smooth that in some instances you never know that
     two adjacent tracks came from separate venues.
  d) Disc 2, Track 3 is shown to be from "Jacksonville Coliseum - Jacksonville,
     FL - January 18th, 1984", but is in fact from "San Diego Sports Arena -
     San Diego, CA -  May 21, 1984".
  e) Amazing compilation and artwork.
  f) Released in January of 2001.

21) Happy Trails                  1:57

                    Total Time - 74:40
Notes:
  a) Very nice, glossy artwork.
  b) The Front is a "Classic" Van Halen logo with flames flying in space.
  c) The inside is the classic black stripes pattern like Eddie had on his
     Guitar with a silver VH in the center. The track listing is inside in
     red lettering which describes where every track was recorded at.
  d) The Inside-Back is a picture Diamond Dave playing his "Davesickle"
     acoustic Guitar that looks like an ice cream bar.
  e) The Under-Disk picture is a group shot of Van Halen.
  f) The Back has a group shot of Van Halen with the track listing on the
     left hand side.
  g) The Disc itself is a picture of M&M's with some brown ones included for
     fun.  For fans who know the story about the band not wanting any brown
     M&M's backstage, this is sort of funny, in a classic VH kind of way.
  h) Reunion II 2002 contains tracks from the original "Reunion" project that
     didn't fit at the time onto the two 80 minute discs.
  i) The songs on this disc represent classic Van Halen songs that a grouping
     of fans said that they'd like to hear again, live in concert. These are
     the best-known recordings of those tunes that were available at the time.
     These songs were then digitally remastered.  The combination of both the
     Reunion & Reunion II disc sets, give the Classic Van Halen fan every
     studio track performed live minus 6 studio tracks (Dirty Movies, Push
     Comes to Shove, One Foot Out The Door, Big Bad Bill is Sweet William Now,
     Top Jimmy & Drop Dead Legs).  The original project did't have that in
     mind per say, but with the addition of Reunion II, all studio tracks that
     were played live in some form appear now with both sets.
  j) All of the recordings are extremely good, and the transition between
     songs is smooth.  In some instances you never know that two adjacent
     tracks came from separate venues.  The remastering work is very good.
  k) There are some amazing tracks in this project.  Track 19 "1984", is an
     extended four minute version of the song with Eddie playing keyboards and
     Alex drumming along with him.  This is the only known time this extended
     version was played on the 1984 tour.  Most of the songs here have been
     heard before on one disc or another, but the 1984/Jump version is worth
     getting, just for it being a rare look into the creative keyboard
     fingering of Eddie Van Halen.
  l) Tracks 8 & 9 are listed as coming from the Pasadena Community College,
     Pasadena California - May 30th, 1976.  The location and date for these
     tracks is incorrect.  They are from the Pasadena Convention Center,
     Pasadena California - May 29th, 1976.
  m) Released in February of 2002.
  n) Great compilation and artwork.  This is a definite must have for anyone.

Notes:
  a) The purpose of this compilation is to honor and uniquely capture the
     very essence of Van Halen's flagship 1978 world tour during their
     professional infancy.  To provide the most expansive possible
     representation and historical perspective of this legendary time in the
     band's history, every song Van Halen performed live on the tour has been
     included.  Most have been sourced from different dates and venues, and
     sequentially positioned in the same order as they were played on
     location with as indiscernible song transitions as could be achieved.
     The desired outcome is for the listener to feel as though they are a
     member of the audience witnessing the band's musicianship, personality,
     and nuance developed throughout the duration of their first world tour
     in one all-encompassing show. At conclusion of the last song, the
     listener should feel exhausted, fulfilled, inspired, and excited to take
     the trip all over again as if they just spent nine glorious months
     following the band around the world.
  b) Most of the audio changes made involved slightly adjusting
     amplification to avoid noticeable volume fluxuations and, of course,
     crossfading was used at the beginning and end of each track to achieve
     smooth transitions between songs from different sources.  No equalization
     or other hokus pocus was used to alter the sources' sound.

Notes:
  a) Originally called, "Yuletime Celebration".
  b) Very nice, glossy artwork.
  c) Cover shows Sammy Hagar on stage, arms flailing along with the title
     and an older looking VH logo.
  d) Rear artwork contains the same VH logo, but with a different look to it.
     Sammy and Edward are on stage in a shot from 1995 behind a track listing
     with running times.  The picture is cool because it's a greyscale photo
     with Sammy's shorts and Edward's guitar colorized.
  e) The inside-back of the front cover has the sources for each track listed
     plus two photos of the band.  One is a promo shot from 1995 and the other
     looks earlier.
  f) Audio quality varies from track to track but overall is pretty good.  The
     transitions between tracks is smoothed out with some crossfading.
  g) Released in August 2002.

Notes:
  a) Intro has Dave and Edward leaving a venue, fighting the fans and getting
     into the back of a limo where Dave pops in a Frank Sinatra video tape.
     It then cust to the "Eruption" video that intros the four band members.
  b) The menu system on the disc is a bit non-functional.  Under the "Clip
     Selection" menu, several items don't work, including the ability to
     page to more menus.  This doesn't stop you from seeing all the clips
     on the disc though, just prevents quick navigation to them.
  c) The "Still Gallery" starts off with the audio to "Mean Street" while
     we see pictures spin onto and off the screen one-by-one.  Each pic
     is on the screen for 4 or 5 seconds before moving to the next.  It runs
     for a total of 5 minutes and includes 52 classic images.
  d) Tracks 3-5 are from Oakland, CA.
  e) Track 6 is a "live" performance of "(Oh) Pretty Woman" while Track 7
     is the video from MTV.
  f) Tracks 7-10 and Track 12 are MTV videos.
  g) Track 13 is the Whistle Test video.
  h) Tracks 14 & 15 are from the same source.
  i) Tracks 18 & 19 is a lip synced stage performance on foreign tv.
  j) The Jim Ladd interview takes place sitting on chairs in a Pasadena
     backyard.
  k) Audio is MPEG 2.0 encoded at 224Kbps.
  l) Video quality varies from clip to clip depending on source.  Encoded
     at an average bit rate of 5.4Mbps.

Notes:
  a) Lineage: Masters>Dave TV>CDR>Remaster>CDR(2)>EAC>WAV>FLAC
  b) Track 1 (Kicks) is a cover of Paul Revere and the Raiders written by
     Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.  It is a David Lee Roth solo song, possibly
     from the "Crazy From The Heat" sessions.
  c) "Glitter" and "Gentlemen of Leisure" are believed to be the earliest
     demos in circulation.  They were released via Dave TV on davidleeroth.com
     in 1998.  Based on the age and style of music, these are likely Mammoth
     demos from 1973 or 1974.  They are said to feature Mark Stone on Bass.
  d) These are in a lossy format since they were released via the Web site,
     and David Lee Roth has the masters.  Remastered by jswetts.
  e) Released in 2005.

Notes:
  a) Disc 1 are the Early Studio Demos.
      Glitter Demos (Unknown date) JS Remaster:
      These are believed by some to be the earliest demos in circulation. They
      were released via Dave TV on davidleeroth.com in 1998. Based on the age
      and style of music, these could be Mammoth demos from very early,
      however, a reliable source has put them as much later in VH's career
      with "Kicks" possibly being from David Lee Roth's "Crazy From The Heat"
      sessions. These are in a lossy format since they were released via the
      Web site, and David Lee Roth has the masters.
       1. Glitter
       2. Kicks (Cover of Paul Revere and the Raiders)
       3. Gentlemen Of Leisure
     Cherokee Studios, Chatworth, CA (1974) JS Remaster:
     These are rumored to be from 1973, but are most likely 1974 based on the
     timeline of the band's development. It is also rumored that Mark Stone
     was on the bass, but interviews place Michael Anthony in the band as
     early as 1972, so it is unlikely. Another story says that when Michael
     Anthony joined the band, they handed him this tape and told him to learn
     the songs. David Lee Roth plays guitar on "Angel Eyes"
      4. Angel Eyes
      5. Believe Me
      6. Simple Rhyme
      7. Take Your Whiskey Home
     Unknown 1975-1976 Demos (Unknown Date(s)) JS Remaster:
     This is a band produced demo recorded at an unknown location. Possibly
     the defunct Hound Dog Studios in Los Angeles or David Lee Roth's
     basement.  Tracks 8 and 9 are rumoured to be from the Pasadena Hilton.
      8. Instrumental -- Guitar track of Edward messing around on guitar.
         Features riffs from "Somebody Get Me A Doctor"

Total Time for all 4 Discs: 4:53:38

Notes:
  a) Cover art is taken from the Red Vinyl promo Van Halen EP that was issued
     by Warner Bros. before the first Album came out. You can still see the
     hole in the middle where you would play the EP on a turntable.
  b) The background image is of a purplish brick pattern. This pattern is
     evident through the packaging. The discs have this pattern in a reddish
     tone, and the liner notes have this pattern in a grayish tone.
  c) The back cover reads:
     Notes
     This four CD set was compiled from hundreds of live and studio outtake
     recordings. The material was digitally transferred from the original
     master tapes or the lowest generation copies available. The transferred
     material was then cleaned up using Sonic Solutions NoNoise process which
     makes these CDs the best sounding of the type to date. It was produced
     solely for archival purposes. We can be found at various VH locations
     and gatherings throughout the Internet, and around the world. Just ask
     around while surfing. "The Unreleased" is a Shaggster production, in
     conjunction with No Bozos Records and 3M Productions. Special thanks
     goes out to Mav (the originator), EdHead "The HEADCOUNT Guy", Fletch,
     Rex Jackson, Gus "no faith" Compson, Corona, and Valerie "vavh" for
     showing up on the list from time to time. Last, and by no means least,
     extra thanks to the guys, Eddie, Alex, Michael, Dave, and Sammy, for
     creating all this fantastic music for us. Peace out.

     Mixing and Mastering by Arvid at "5151",
     Jan. - Mar. 1996

     Production and Distribution by
     The Big D

     Graphic Design by Brad Starks
  d) The "No Bozos" comes from a t-shirt design present on the RH:RN tour.
  e) Each of the four discs are well labeled, with the Name, Volume Number
     and Track Listing. They also say "Made in Canada".
  f) The liner notes are well done, frequently stating where a particular
     track was recorded and other notes about it, when known.
  g) It was confirmed after these discs went to press that the first three
     tracks on Disc 1 are NOT Van Halen (although there are still some that
     believe it is). It was found out to be George Lynch's band (before
     Dokken?). The fact that this is not Van Halen was confirmed by the
     band themselves.
  h) This four CD set was the creation of many people on the Van Halen
     Mailing List. It took about 10 months to get the discs pressed, during
     which time many people became frustrated with the process and made
     threats against the person in charge of getting them pressed. All
     was forgiven when the discs finally arrived.
  i) The inital pressing was limited to 500 copies, but rumor has it that
     the CD pressing plant (or someone involved with the process) has been
     churning out more sets and that they can be found through "normal"
     channels. However, the price tag on them is said to be more than 5
     times what everyone else paid!

                  Total Time - 54:07
Notes:
  a) The cover shows Edward wailing on his black and white striped Kramer.
     A very old Van Halen logo graces the upper left corner.
  b) The inside of the 2 page cover shows a collage of older VH pictures,
     along with a flyer from a show at the Goldenwest Ballroom. However, this
     flyer is from an earlier performance of the band at that location on
     March 13, 1976. The actual date of this particular show was May 9, 1976.
  c) The backside of the cover has text on top of a picture of Alex pounding
     out the beat to some tune. The text talks about the venue, the show and
     how some of the songs done that night have never been released on LP or
     CD (until now).
  d) The rear cover shows an early pic of VH sitting in front of their
     equipment, along with the track listing.
  e) Called "Listen Up Shenkar" on test pressings and came with plain, typed
     inserts instead of the full color ones in this release. "Shenkar" is a
     reference to Michael Shenkar's band, UFO, which Van Halen opened for
     that evening.
  f) Track 2 is actually "I'm The One".
  g) Track 10 is actually "We Die Bold".
  h) Track 13 is actually "Let Me Swim", a cover of the Cactus song.
  i) "Last Night" is an early version of "Hang 'em High".
  j) According to the back cover, Tracks 10 and 13 have never been released
     on any VH Bootleg.
  k) The sound quality is excellent for this very early recording. This is
     a must have for any serious Van Halen fan.

                     Total Time - 72:46
Notes:
  a) Tracks 1 through 7 are listed as being from the GoldenWest Ballroom on
     May 9, 1976.  However, that was a Sunday, and Dave can be heard mentioning
     that it's a Thursday.
  b) The GoldenWest Ballroom quality is about A- to B.
  c) Tracks 8 through 11 are from The Starwood Club June 1, 1976.
  d) The Starwood Club tracks are great! "A" quality. The sound at times is
     uneven, but all in all it stays very proportioned. No one instrument
     takes over and muffles the others out.
  e) Tracks 12 and 13 both have a cut at the beginning.  The sound is similar
     to the Starwood Club tracks, but it is uncertain if they are from the same
     show, same venue, or even the same date.
  f) Tracks 14 and 15 are from La Canada High School Feb 75.
  g) Tracks 16 and 17 do not have a source listed. They are partial tracks
     and are not noted anywhere on the CD packaging. They are also from
     La Canada High School Feb 75.
  h) The La Canada High School tracks are very bassy! The bass really muffles
     the rest of the band. This show is probably a low B at best. Again, not
     bad for 1975.
  i) The disc is a CD-R with a white cover label that is stamped in black:
     Van Halen

Notes:
  a) Disc 1 is listed on the artwork as being from the Pasadena
     Community College - Pasadena CA - May 30, 1976.  It is in fact actually
     from the Pasadena Convention Center - Pasadena, CA - May 29, 1976.
  b) Disc 2 is listed as being from the Starwood - Hollywood CA - June 1, 1976.
  c) Disc 2 Track 1 (On Fire) is the same track from Disc 1, but it's either
     from a different source, or was edited to sound like it was from a
     different source.
  d) On Disc 2 Dave's rap at the end of Somebody Get Me a Doctor is the same
     rap that was used to fill in after On Fire, again, to make it appear to
     be from a different source.
  e) Disc 3 Tracks 1 & 2 are listed as being from the Starwood - Hollywood CA
     June 1, 1976.
  f) Disc 3 Tracks 3 - 11 are shown as being from John Muir High School
     Pasadena CA - 1975.
  g) Disc 3 Track 12 is listed as an early Van Halen original from 1975.
  h) Disc 3 Track 13 is a solo DLR song, which sounds like it was dubbed
     from an episode of Dave TV off of the internet, and is listed as a
     Van Halen original from 1975.

     of the Edgar Winter song by the same name.
  c) All tracks are from the Pasadena Hilton in 1975 except for Track 10 which
     is from the Pasadena Convention Center on May 29, 1976. This track, "I'm

     Pasadena Hilton portion and May 30, 1976 for Track 10, which is also
     incorrectly listed as coming from the Goldenwest Ballroom in Norwalk, CA.

  k) This is a great show.  Too bad there's a multitude of cuts.  The cuts are
     either of the songs themselves or Dave's rapping in between the songs.  The
     "Story of Joe" during "Fools" was also cut.

  b) Quality of show: A+
  c) This show smokes all other versions you will find. Unlike "The Eyes Of
     Night", this show is complete and not spliced together from other club
     days shows, and the sound is amazing.
  d) The date and location have been reported wrong for years. The show was
     played on Saturday May 29th, 1976 and not Sunday May 30th, 1976.
  e) The band plays an extremely energetic set, and even hint about hearing
     the day we would all hear their songs on the radio. This is a must have
     show.
  f) Transferred, edited and brought to you by Wooda and LIVE1 Productions.
  g) Cover shows the band against a police height backdrop.  The City of
     South Pasadena logo appears in the upper left corner.
  h) The inside of the cover shows a crinkled copy of the handbill for
     the show.
  i) The back cover has a light gray background.  The track listing appears
     in black text at the bottom and a South Pasadena Police patch is shown
     at the top.
  j) The under-tray photo is of a young Edward in fromt of a panelled wall.
     The old Van Halen logo appears in white on black in the spine area.
  k) Released in November 2005.

     big drum solo in the middle, a guitar solo with parts that Eddie didn't
     do after 1976, and a preview of the "Story of Joe" which would be told
     at most of the 1979 shows.  Dave prattles away between the songs and

  b) Quality: B-
  c) Tracks 1-3 of Disc 1 are from set number one.
  d) Tracks 4-12 of Disc 1 are from set number two.
  e) All of Disc 2 is from set number three.
  f) This was taken mostly from one tape, however the "Slow Ride" fragment
     comes from another tape. The main tape for this had an obvious splice
     between "Last Child" and "Live For The Music".
  g) Quality of the analog source is roughly comparable to that of "Covers
     Band from Pasadena". However, the tape did not continously get slower as
     with that title. The speed was slow on the tape, but it was a constant
     speed except for the end of "Walk This Way" where you can hear it get a
     little slower. Side 2 of the tape began with "Superstition" and the speed
     from there on out was again constant. Most importantly, this is about 13
     minutes longer than "Covers Band." It includes "You Really Got Me", the
     aforementioned "Slow Ride" fragment, "Happy Trails", and "D.O.A". There
     are a couple of minor cuts in "Last Child" and "Keep Playing That Rock
     and Roll", as well as a minor cut in the talking between "Walk This Way"
     and "Superstition".
  h) From the sounds of things, Van Halen did at least 3 sets that night. The
     tape begins towards the end of Set I with "You Really Got Me" as the
     closer. "Last Child" apparently opens up set two. Set 3 begins with
     "Still Alive And Well." Dave's talking leads to this conclusion.
  i) Released in May 2005.

Notes:
  a) The front cover is a picture of Dave (1984 era).
  b) The inside front cover is a picture of Eddie playing White/Black
     stripped guitar in black leather pants.
  c) The back cover is a picture of all 4 in a dressing room (obviously
     after a show 1979 era) w/a purple band at the top that say's
     "Recorded Live At Aeros Bogarts, San Bernadino, California 1976".
     The rest of the back cover has a black background w/ the picture as
     described above w/ track listings below.
  d) The inside back cover (under the CD) is a picture of Dave, Mike and
     Ed on stage (1982 era).
  e) The disc itself is Silver/Black w/"Halen Bros" on the silver side in
     red ink and "Ready Go" in silver ink on the black side.
  f) THIS SHOW IS DIGITALLY RE-MASTERED !!!
     Since the initial recording was done on a recorder that the batteries
     were getting weaker as the show went on; each song was digitally speed
     corrected and then the whole show put back together.
     No tape hiss, everything is eq'd.
  g) The recording is a pretty good audience recording from that era.
     You can hear people talking at times, but mostly in between the songs.
     A couple pieces sounded like it needed to be spliced together but
     overall an excellent recording from that time.
  h) Track 3 is not an "intro". It's just Ed & Mike fiddling around with
     their instruments while the others get ready.

Notes:
  a) AMAZING sound quality!
  b) Many people have heard the two tracks from this demo, "House Of Pain" and
     "Runnin' With the Devil", and have commented that the tone is very
     different than the WB demos and eventual pressed versions. This is
     extremely evident throughout this set of demos. Eddie's guitar tone is
     far from what it was to become and there are several instances of
     multiple guitar overdubs. In some cases, there are as many as three
     guitar tracks at one time and some solos are actually laid over one
     another at times.
  c) Dave's vocal delivery is dramatically different on many tracks such as
     "Babe, Don't Leave Me Alone" and "Somebody Get Me a Doctor".
  d) The art work is lackluster at best, taken from the van-halen.com website
     photo files and squeezed into a template (see images).
  e) The front cover art is the Flyin' Eddie shot taken from the van-halen.com
     site from the 1981 Stones gig.
  f) The back is a shot of Eddie circa 1986, sitting on the drum riser
     finishing his guitar solo.
  g) The inner cover art (if you want to call it that) is a shot of Alex
     behind the kit circa 1988.
  h) The disc artwork is a shot of Dave from the California Girls video (black
     and yellow overalls) with a babe at his side, but the ink is smudged and
     smeared. The disc is printed with a low-cost CD-R printer.
  i) "Runnin' With the Devil" is slightly different that the version that
     normally follows "House of Pain" on the other boots. This version starts
     with the band singing the chorus in the fourth measure of the song,
     before any of the verses are sang.
  j) There are a few very slight, almost unnoticeable drop-outs in a couple
     spots of the disc. Also, there are two strange skips in "Let's Get
     Rockin'" where about three seconds of a phrase is back tracked and
     repeated.
  k) Track 3 is listed as, "House In Pain", on the artwork.
  l) Track 6 is listed as, "Lady Loose", on the artwork.
  m) Dave noticeably sings Track 7 as "Big Troubles".
  n) Track 9 is listed as, "Baby Don't Leave Me Alone", on the artwork.
  o) All in all, 4.99 out of 5! A recording that puts the WB Demos on "Looney
     Tunes" and "Blueprint" boots to SHAME! Even the "masterered" tracks on
     "Looney Tunes" don't have the crisp, clear sound that these tracks have.
  p) In May 2002 the errors on this disc were corrected by a member of the Van
     Halen trading community.  Also at that time new artwork was created for
     it.

Notes:
  a) The first 10 tracks are the same Gene Simmons demos that were released
     in the spring of 2002 as "Zero".  They are a direct copy of the fixed
     disc of "Zero" that was circulated in the Van Halen trading community.
  b) Tracks 11-21 are from the Civic Auditorium in Pasadena California on
     February 8, 1978.  Possibly taken from the same source as sides 3 & 4
     of "Simple Rhymes".
  c) Front cover shows a picture of the band relaxing in British garb with
     an orange colored VH logo at the top and the name of this disc along the
     bottom over a background of black with gray stripes.
  d) Back cover shows the band on stage with the track listing over the same
     black background and gray stripes.
  e) The inside front cover shows a classic picture of the band in the studio
     which is strewn with beer cans and general chaos.  Below that picture is
     some text which describes the Gene Simmons Demos which make up the first
     10 tracks of this disc.
  f) The undertray artwork has Dave showing off on a skateboard.
  g) The disc is aqua text on a black background.
  h) Sound quality of the first 10 tracks are the same "Zero", which is
     excellent.
  i) Sound quality of the 1978 show (tracks 11-21) is variable, but generally
     pretty good for a live recording from that era.

     "Blueprint" is printed in blue along the bottom with the text,
     "Unreleased 25 Savage Young Warner Bros. Demos".

     The set list of both discs is printed over top of the picture. Above
     the guy's heads it reads: "Original Soundboard Recording / Definitive
     Remastered Edition" and "Uncirculated 25 UNMIXED DEMOS for Warner Bros.

  h) The sound quality is very good/excellent stereo, though not perfect.
     It's a few generations down from the master source with some hiss but
     everything is clear and the sound doesn't need any help from your
     equalizer to make it better.
  i) "On Fire, Voodoo Queen, House of Pain and Running With The Devil", from
     Disc 2 are excellent quality, "good" sounding mono.

(*) indicates "remixed in 1977" versions of the demos. They sound somewhat cleaner
    and are from a better generation source then the original demos.

Notes:
  a) This is a professionally done CD-R with silk-screened art on the discs,
     no sticky labels.
  b) The track listings presented on the back cover differ slightly from those
     above.  The listing above is correct for what is on the discs.
  c) The quality of the 25 song demos is the same as those tracks on the
     bootleg disc called, "Blueprint".
  d) Tracks 5-8 on Disc 2 are from an old KMET radio interview that has shown
     up in various forms on some older bootlegs and includes Dave doing the
     intro to the "Full Bug" on acoustic guitar and changing around a bit
     to make it an advertisement for KMET. These particular tracks are
     excellent quality.
  e) Tracks 7 & 8 on Disc 2 are an interview with Lisa Robinson that includes
     Eddie doing the Elephant, Horse and Mouse sounds on guitar.
  f) Track 12 on Disc 2 is King Crimson's "Discipline", not Van Halen!
  g) Track 13 on Disc 2 (Let Me Swim In Your Ocean 5/30/76) is a cover of
     the Cactus song, "Let Me Swim" from May 29, 1976.
  h) Track 18 on Disc 2 is a poor sounding soundboard recording from the
     Jacksons' Texas show in 1984 which Eddie played "Beat It" live with the
     band.
  i) Tracks 19-21 on Disc 2 are from a radio interview where a caller claims
     he has a tape he recorded from Van Halen in 1975 while doing sound for
     the other band on the bill called "Air Castle" and has "Superstitious"
     and a small part of "La Grange".
  j) Also included are songs straight off of their respective CDs. Including
     Nicollette Larson's "Get Away From You" that Eddie played on in 1978 and
     all 3 tracks from the Brian May "Star Fleet" LP (CD versions used).
  k) One bad thing about this set is the inclusion of a few dubious tracks
     (11,14,17 and 22 on Disc 2) from "Eddie solo in his studio" that are fakes
     done by a guitar instructor and appeared on the "Guitar Man" bootleg a few
     years back.
  l) Even though "Feel Your Love Tonight" is listed on the cover art for
     Disc 2, it is not on the set. Also, If you look closely on the songlist
     for Disc 2, there is no Track #16 listed!
  m) Cover mimics the old "That's All Folks!" cartoon ending, except it has
     Dave and Edward in the center, and "Van Halen" across the top.
  n) Rear artwork contains the extensive set list atop of a cartoon scene
     containing the Tasmanian Devil, Road Runner, Daffy Duck, and Yosemite Sam.
     Each of the cartoon characters has been assigned to one of the Van Halen
     band members.
  o) The under-tray artwork shows a black and white shot of Edward on stage,
     black and white striped guitar in hand, drums in the background.
  p) The inside of the booklet includes several shots of the band, individually
     and in the studio.  It also contains a shot of the house that the Van
     Halen's grew up in, in Pasadena, and a year book photo of Edward.
  q) The back of the booklet contains 4 shots, one each of the band members.
     A small Warner Bros. logo is in the center.
  r) An insert on white paper contains three separate items.  An introduction
     to what this set contains, Media Information on the band from 1977, and
     an interview with Dave Roth by Raw Power - this interview in one of the
     earliest known interviews.
  s) The discs are all black except where there is no black, allowing the gold
     of the media to show through, to form the words on them.  They both say,
     "The WB 25 The Real Thing".

                               Total Time - 61:31

Notes:
  a) Tracks 1-9 are from various shows from 1976 & 77 (although it says on
     the backcover that these tracks were recorded from the audience at the
     Starwood in August 76). It appears that most of the tracks are from the
     show at the Starwood on June 3, 1976, and from the show at the Whisky
     on Dec 31, 1977.
  b) Tracks 10-15 are from the show at the Starwood Club on June 12, 1976.
     The back cover lists these tracks as being from the Pasadena High
     School on this date. It also lists these tracks as having been recorded
     from the soundboard.
  c) The CD-R copy that this reviewer has, contains three extra tracks. There
     is a 4 second track of silence before "Walk Away". A 51 second track
     containing a drum solo from Alex before "On Fire", and a 7 second track
     containing silence before "On Fire".  The tracks containing silence are
     obviously some sort of mastering error.
  d) The cover shows Dave, Al, and Mike in the studio. Dave had probably
     broken his foot, since he is wearing a plaster cast around his right
     foot and is holding a cane in his hand. Ed appears in a seperate
     inset photo in the bottom left corner.
  e) The quality of the tracks is actually pretty good for recordings that
     are over 20 years old.

Notes:
  The first 9 tracks are fake! It is not Edward Van Halen, it is Curt
  Mitchell from an instructional guitar video titled, Learn To Burn.
  However, the last track (the long one) is real. (i.e, Ed)
  a) From the Liner Notes:
     This CD contains the original soundboard practice sessions of
     Edward Van Halen. They are solo sessions with Edward from 1977-1983.
     Hours upon hours of tape have been gone through and edited to bring
     you these choice selections, spanning the best years of Eddie's guitar
     work! This tape source had to be literally "pieced" together in order
     to bring you, the listener, the most accurate of each song in its
     original sequence.
  b) There's no copyright date, but the cover is a picture of Ed from
     the F.U.C.K. tour playing his double neck. The disc itself has a
     5150-era picture of Ed playing his candy-striped beauty.

                 Total Time - 45:15
Notes:
  a) The cover is a HQ pic of Ed from '84, smiling and wearing his yellow
     and black tiger shirt. His pic overlays red and white stripes which
     is the pattern on the back as well.  His guitar partially goes into
     the cover and so does his right hand (It looks really cool). On the
     right side of the cover it says "1984  PREVIOUS NIGHT" in green letters.
     On the left side of the front if you look through the jewel case it
     says "V A N  H A L E N"  in red on a white background which gives the
     whole package added beauty.
  b) The inside has another '84 pic of Ed on red & white stripes but this
     time his guitar fret is there along with his left hand. The same
     stripes are under where the CD sits.
  c) The back has small individual pics of each member, circa 1984 and on
     the left side is the track listing with a pic of a riffle on the bottom
     representing the label "elements of crime," but since this CD is only
     one element it says "ELEMENT OF CRIME" by the riffle.
  d) The CD itself looks like a vinyl record.  The middle is red with the
     incorrect spelling of "1984 Previous Night". It says "1984 Previos
     Night."
  e) Based on the tracks and the order in which they follow each other
     this is basically the same  as the "Eddie Van Halen: Guitar Man" CD
     and the last third of the "At the best" CD. However, "At the best"
     does not include tracks 9-13 which are the more interesting tracks.
  f) Tracks 1 through 8 and 11 are Guitar instrumental takes.
  g) Tracks 9 and 10 are Instrumental takes.
  h) Tracks 12 and 13 are Demo takes.
  i) The sound of guitar instrumental takes:
     Eruption is a "B"
     the rest are B+/A-
  j) The sound of the Instrumental takes is "A-".
  k) The sound of the Demo takes is A/A+.
  l) As with many Van Halen bootleg recordings, "1984 Previous Night" is
     recommended to die hard fans.  It's also recommended to those who
     don't have "Eddie Van Halen Guitar Man."

Notes:
  a) Cover and back show DLR.  High quality production.
  b) Track listings are those given in the inlay, including spelling
     mistakes.  Also in inlay:
     Tracks 1-9/13-14  Van Halen
     Track 10          Gene Autry (actual composer was Dale Evans)
     Track 11          Jagger-Richards
     Track 12          Bowie
     Track 15          Bad Co
     Track 16          Edgar Winter
  c) Tracks 1-10 sound studio quality, tracks 11-16 are good considering the
     age.
  d) Tracks:
     i)   "Show Your Love" is actually "I'm The One" from VH1.
     ii)  "Voodoo Queen" contains some of the main riffs from
          "Mean Streets" from Fair Warning, but with different vocals.
     iii) "Last Night" is basically the same music as "Hang 'Em High" from
          Diver Down, with a few minor differences and different vocals.
     iv)  "Get the show on the road": this song has a great riff behind it...
          very hard.  Contains vocal elements from "Romeo Delight."
     v)   "Babe don't leave me alone": another unreleased original, doesn't
          contain any elements from anything else they've released either.
     vi)  "Big Trouble":  Another original.
     vii) "She's The Woman": Contains some riffs from "Mean Streets."
     viii)"Put Out The Lights": great grinding riff behind this one.
          Doesn't contain any elements from released songs.
     ix)  The most amusing part of this disc is listening to Dave introduce
          the band in Track 11 at the Hilton.  This show was from back in
          their early days, and it just sounded crazy to hear him say,
          "Yeah, for those of you who just walked in, we're Van Halen."
     x)   "Women In Love":  This is NOT the same as "Women in Love..." on
          VHII.  The chorus itself sounds somewhat the same and some of
          the lyrics match, but the music is different.  It's got a style
          that definitely doesn't sound like VH...more like some sort
          of '70's pop music or something.
  e) Track 13 is actually 0:27 long, not 1:27 as listed on the inlay.
  f) Artwork shows "Bonus live trax from Pasadena Hilton '76", but this
     was actually recorded in 1975.
  g) Some printings of the track list have track 16 as "Rock N' Roll
     Hoochie Kii."
  h) All in all, an excellent disc.

                   Disc 1 Time - 43:02

Total Running Time - 100:51

Notes:
  a) The Front Cover background is striped just like Ed's guitar (only green
     w/black stripes). The top of the cover has VH 1 logo with yellow
     bordering. Below that is a picture of Ed 2"x3" playing the black -n-
     white guitar w' the famous chain strap. Underneath that are the letters
     "Last Night" in red.
  b) The Back Cover has the same background as the front cover. Top has 4
     individual pictures 1"x1" of the band (circa 1978). Below that is the
     VH logo (same as VH 1) with "Last Night" in white lettering on the left
     side and "In For The One" on the right side in white lettering.
  c) Both discs are identical except for one says "Last Stand" and the other
     "In For The One" They both look like 45 rpm records with a silver middle
     and black (looks like record grooves) on the outside.
  d) Sound Quality: Demos are excellent soundboard. Whiskey A Go-Go says it's
     soundboard but it's a really (for the time era) clean audience recording.
     Pasadena Hilton is excellent soundboard also.
  e) The manufacturer says that these are "all soundboard" recordings but
     they are not (as described below). A fine looking package. Songs 1 - 3
     on the 1st disc are the same old versions that we've heard before
     (cleaned up a little). Song 4 disc 1 sounds like a very good audience
     recording (not soundboard). Songs 5 - 13 are the same as 77 + Live.
     Songs 1 - 7 are indeed from the Whiskey and are a not soundboard but are
     an excellent audience recording. This is a "tape source" and is
     remarkably clean! Pasadena Hilton is the same selections and quality as
     the "Eyes Of Night" cd.
  f) This 2 cd set might not be worth the asking price and alot of it is
     rehash, BUT the disc does have the Whiskey New Years Eve Show which
     itself is pretty historical. If your a VH "completest" and want
     something historical for your collection then pick it up.

Notes:
  a) This is a high quality gold CDR of the 6/10/77 show at Whiskey A Go
     Go. The recording contains a color cover and color back insert.
  b) All photos on the CD are taken from Issue #1 of The Inside (pages
     21-22).
  c) The front cover has the VH logo on top. There is a picture of the
     band in what looks like a record studio/station (page 22 of The Inside).
     "Oldest Lost Tape" is printed in the right corner.
  d) The inside cover has a very young photograph of Edward Van Halen,
     age 6 (page 21 of The Inside). He looks like he is dressed in some type
     of suit or tuxedo.
  e) The back cover contains a vintage photo of the band which has ended
     up on a few posters from their early touring days (page 21 of The
     Inside). The songs are listed horizontally and printed in red. Tracks
     1, 3, 5, 11, & 12 are asterisked with the note "Previously Unreleased".
     Track 14 is double asterisked with the note "Slade Cover" by it.
  f) Track 12 (Show No Mercy), the guitar intro is EXACTLY like "Take Me
     Back (Deja Vu)" from Balance.
  g) This is an "A-" audience recording of the early club days. A lot of
     Dave's rappin/talkin' is in this one. A nice set of songs for 1977.
     A must if you can get your hands on it!! This even has a few of those
     illustrious 25 song demo tracks (tracks 5 & 12 are songs that are not
     even on the 25 song demo itself!)

                     Total Time - 56:47
Notes:
  a) This is a professionally done CD-R. The disc itself is silk-screened
     maroon with the words "Magic Mountain" printed in bold letters.  The
     liner notes on this disc are printed on very high quality glossy paper.
     Quality comparable to "That's All Folks!"
  b) The front cover is a picture of Dave and Ed on stage in front of a red,
     black, and white guitar pattern.
  c) The inside front is a picture of all four band members.
  d) The inside back is a picture of Eddie (looks like he's in the studio)
     with his guitar in the middle of a story from someone who was at the
     concert that day, claiming to have been really messed up from "many
     bong tokes"!! He also goes on to describe the entire disc. An interesting
     note is at the bottom of this story in fine print is:
     "Buyer Beware:
     If this cd booklet looks like a cheap Xerox copy, don't buy it. The CD
     should be a high quality CDR with a real CD like booklet."
  e) The under disc tray art is a picture of Eddie and Alex on Yamaha dirt
     bikes.
  f) The back is a picture of all four members hanging around a Cadillac
     stretch limo in front of a pharmacy.  Above it is a listing of the songs
     in red.
  g) The sound is excellent for a 22 year old recording.  All the instruments
     come through nice and clear.  At times there is some slight feedback
     during the show, but none takes away from enjoying the show.
  h) Track 2 is noted on the artwork as "Unreleased By VH, Only known Live
     Version", a very fast rocking song.
  i) Track 6 is noted on the artwork as "Earliest Live Version Of Song From
     Women & Childern First".
  j) Track 7 is noted on the artwork as "Unreleased By VH, Only Known Live
     Version On Soundboard".  This is really "Show No Mercy" and the intro
     is the same as "Take Me Back(Deja Vu)" from "Balance".
  k) Track 11 is noted on the artwork as "Rare Cover, Earliest Known Live
     version By VH". There is too much bass on this one song.
  l) Track 12 "Angel Eyes" is an absolutely beautiful acoustic song by Dave.
     Not your typical VH, probably the reason it was never released, but Dave
     fans will love it! The sound is excellent...very clear. Supposedly from
     1974, one of the rarest songs from the DLR era.
  m) Tracks 13 and 14 are the same versions from "Demo Daze" but claim to be
     from a much lower generation tape source.
  n) All said......this disc is a must have for every Van Halen fan if you can
     get your hands on one!  This is one of their first shows after being
     signed by Warner Bros.

Notes:
  a) This is a re-mastered version of the Die Laughing LP bootleg.  The sound
     quality is better, quite similar to some of the other boots from this
     same show.  On the inside cover and the back cover there are some
     comments about the CD:

       "This is a re-mastered CD version of the Van Halen bootleg LP
       called Die Laughing.  Recorded in Pasadena, CA., 12/20/77, this
       is a high-quality show in both sound and performance.  Hear the
       original lineup of the band just under 2 months before their
       debut LP was released on Warner Bros. Records. This is a limited
       edition re-master and is on CD-R media, not a regular silver CD.
       Some versions of this boot have the dialog between songs cut
       out.  This one, however, has all of the dialog included."

  b) The front cover is a vintage yellow-style color.  It has 4 individual
     pictures of Dave, Ed, Mike, and Alex from that same time period.  In the
     bottom left corner of the cover is says "Re-master Not For Sale"  The
     performance and sound is better, and unlike a lot of the boots from this
     show, the speed doesn't seem too slow.
  c) The inside cover is blank.  However, there is a separate piece of paper
     with a flyer printed on it, dated Friday, October 1st., probably in 1977.
     It's a purplish, lavender color with an old picture of the band on stage
     back when Eddie hadn't cut up his Destroyer guitar.  According to the
     flyer, Van Halen was the main act and two other bands, Headwinds and
     Eulogy were the other 2 on the bill for that evening.
  d) The back cover gives the track listing and the same comments as the
     inside cover, word for word.  In the top right corner is a picture of
     Dave, looking rather drunk.  The bottom right corner is a picture of the
     band from around the time their first album was released.  The date
     printed on the artwork for the show (12/20/77) is incorrect though.  The
     actual date of this show was October 15, 1977.
  e) Released in late 2000.

               Side A Time - 24:47

Total Time - 48:27

Notes:
  a) The majority of the music is from the famous Pasadena Civic show on
     October 15, 1977. It's one of the most widely bootleged Van Halen shows.
  b) The last two tracks on Side B ("House of Pain" and "Runnin' With the
     Devil") are studio out-takes.  "House of Pain" has different lyrics than
     what is on the "1984" record.
  c) The track names listed above are what is written on the artwork and LP
     label.
  d) The most widely distributed version of the cover art has a yellow
     background.  Two party photos appear.  The band name is in red in the
     upper right corner.  The name of the LP is below that in green, and
     below the name is a blue spiked star.  In the lower left quarant are more
     spiked stars, without color.
  e) An alternate, more rare, cover has the exact same content, but instead of
     a yellow background, it is all black.
  f) The back artwork is an odd take on the official artwork for the LP,
     "1984".  A child appears to have angel wings, and has a large cigarette
     in its mouth and is holding a rope.  The band members each have their
     own photo in the four corners.  Ed in the upper left wearing white,
     seated at a white piano.  Dave is in the upper right, shirt open and
     on stage.  Alex is in the lower right sitting with some drum equipment.
     Michael is in the lower left surrounded by bass guitars.
  g) The LP is blank vinyl, and has a red label.

Notes:
  a) Tracks 1-11 are the same as "The Atomic Punks", but the sound
     quality is a little bit better.
  b) "House of Pain" and "Runnin' With the Devil" are both studio
     out-takes.

     w/two girls on either side of him wearing VH hats (police style).

Notes:
  a) Fabulous full color cover showing the band on stage at some outdoor gig
     played in a three-tired stadium.  It is an action shot showing Edward and
     Michael jamming and David Lee Roth high in the air doing one of his
     famous leaping splits.
  b) The rear cover contains a photo of Edward, Michael and David on stage
     from what looks like the 1984 tour.
  c) This is a Korean release.  From what little English there is, it looks
     like this LP was issued in 1992.
  d) Track times are taken from the rear cover.

                 Total Time - 42:43
Notes:
  a) Very raw (before Van Halen I was released), bandwidth seems restricted,
     probably as an artifact of the recording technology back then.  The show
     has been edited with dialog between songs getting cut out.
  b) Rear artwork incorrectly indicates the date of this show as "20 dec. 1977"

11) You Really Got Me          4:53

                 Total Time - 46:27
Notes:
  a) This disc is a high quality soundboard recording of the Pasadena Civic
     Center show from October 15, 1977. Van Halen played only one more live
     show before the first album was released.
  b) The mixing is pretty raw. But, this is a good representation of the
     band from the pre- VH1 days.
  c) The back cover of the disc claims that this disc was recorded "live in
     St. Petersburg, FL - May 29, 1990", which is clearly incorrect. Sammy
     was in the band in 1990!

Notes:
  a) Same show as "The Atomic Punks", but this one is the full show with all
     the dialog included.  However, the master used for this disc was recorded
     too slow and the band doesn't seem right, it's just begging to be sped up
     but that seems a little impossible with a CD.
  b) Rear artwork incorrectly indicates this show being from December 20, 1977.

11) You Really Got Me          4:00

                      Total - 53:23
Notes:
  a)  The jacket claims that the original VH songs were written by Van
      Halen/Van Halen/Roth/Sobolewski even though Michael Anthony is listed
      as the bassist. (of course Michael Anthony's real last name is
      "Sobolewski")
  b)  Tracks 8, 9, 10 for some reason or another are repeated back to
      back.  The only advantage is that Eruption seems twice as long.
  c)  Sound quality probably similar to the other boots of this show.  No
      blatant editing (i.e, Dave's on-stage banter is present) is
      noticeable except those listed in Note b.

Notes:
  a) The title ("Japan") and the text printed on the back of the artwork was
     probably meant to throw off buyers, but this is yet another copy of the
     infamous Pasadena Civic Center 1977 show.
  b) Shots used on the cover are the same as those used on the "Die Laughing"
     LP.
  c) Back is white with a paragraph of large Asian text above the set list.
  d) Black vinyl record has blank labels, but "FAC" stamped into the vinyl.

  b) Another copy of the infamous Pasadena Civic Center 1977 show.
  c) Cover contains a hand-drawn image of David Lee Roth (looks kind of like
     David Coverdale), and Edward Van Halen.  The lettering is hand-stamped
     using red ink.  Each copy of this release is slightly different because
     of the hand-stamping.

Notes:
  a) "Wrongly dated for far too long, it's now time to set the record
     straight.  VH never played another show at the Civic after this date,
     so throw away all those 12/20/77 average sounding boots, and settle
     into this experience, complete with rehearsals."
  b) Cover art shows the classic VH logo along with 4 color pictures of the
     band along with the show title in the center.
  c) Inside back cover artwork shows the handbill for the show as well as the
     original images that were used on the handbill.  Very cool!  It also
     has the text from the first note.
  d) The undertray artwork is a large classic VH logo with miniature versions
     running up the left edge so they can be visable through a clear tray.
  e) Rear artwork shows the classic VH logo, the handbill along with show
     information and track listing.
  f) Tracks 1-3 are instrumental tracks played during rehearsal.
  g) Tracks 4 & 5 are tracks from rehearsal with DLR on vocals.
  h) Tracks 6-16 are from the show itself.
  i) Quality is very very good.  This is the one and only copy of the

Notes:
a) Tracks 1-11 are taken from the Oct. 15, 1977 show at the Pasadena Civic.
   The only difference is that all of the talking between songs has been edited
   out, so none of Dave's on-stage banter on this disc.  Other than that, it's
   a great sounding recording.  Ed is in fine form as usual.
b) Tracks 12 and 13 are taken from the demo tape produced by Gene Simmons of
   KISS.  No other taped copies of these two songs can touch these tracks in
   terms of sound quality.  This is a great opportunity to hear two great
   songs in their early forms, complete with some great overdub work by Ed.
c) Tracks 14 and 15 are taken from their New Year's Eve, 1977 gig at the
   Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Hollywood.  As far anyone knows, these are unreleased
   originals, not cover tunes.  Sound quality isn't quite as good as the other
   live tracks, but still are pretty good given their age.
d) Artwork incorrectly indicates the Oct. 15, 1977 date as Dec. 20, 1977.
  e) Front artwork shows the band dressed in suits from the Hot For Teacher
     video, with a blue stripe running down the right side containing
     (incorrect) show information.
  f) The inside back artwork conatins a black and white shot of Dave, along
     with information on the bonus tracks (12-15).
  g) The rear artwork has a shot of the band with drinks and popcorn cups.
     At the bottom is the set list, and a Nostalgia Records logo from Norwich
     UK.
  h) The CD is black text printed on a silver disc.

     the quality shifts.  While still good, you can tell it comes from a
     different source.  Tracks 3 & 4 seems to be from the same source.  Then
     at Track 5 it shifts sources again.  The quality shifts again for the
     last track (You Really Got Me) indicating another source change.
  c) Overall quality rating: B/B-.
  d) Artwork states, "The Complete Recording Of Legendaly Concert".
  e) Photos used throughout the artwork are nice and everything is
     professionally done.
  f) Limited to 300 numbered copies world wide.
  g) Released in late 2002.

                 Total Time - 71:48
Notes:
  a) The cover insert, with Eddie and David (circa 1982-83), is somewhat
     animated- with an effect similar to the Dire Straits "Money For
     Nothing" video. The back of the insert has a picture of all four
     band members bowing during an encore. It, also, contains the
     following text:
      "Hey, Pilgrims. Wanna hear something that rocks? This is it! Van
      Halen doing a home town gig. A great soundboard performance! Also
      included are three tracks from Kyoto, Japan 1979 to round off the
      set. Enjoy the sound of this band before all the squabbling and
      in-fighting.
      Much thanks to all involved, but especially Toni (a rolling stone
      gathers no) for all her support. Dedicated to Stryder the Bear Dog."
  c) Under the cd, in the jewel case, is a picture of the VH Christmas card.
  d) The disc itself is all red and simply reads,
     "CIVIC PRIDE
     GARJR 001
     FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY"
  e) On the back of the case, "Feel Your Love Tonight" is mistitled for
     the Kyoto, Japan show. It reads: "I Can't Wait To Feel Your Love
     Tonight".  The artwork also incorrectly indicates the date of the
     Pasadena show as being from December 20, 1977.
  f) The sound quality of this disc is very similar to the Atomic Punk boot-
     a very raw soundboard recording. The Pasadena show is a very worthy
     addition to any VH collection.
  g) The three tunes from Japan are from a relatively horrible audience
     recording and the sound is very distant on these tracks. In my
     estimation, they are a complete waste of disc space.
  h) Dave's stage rap is very minimal- leading me to believe that it was cut
     out when the manufacturer made this package.
  i) All in all, this is a good disc- on par with the Atomic Punk release of
     the same show. Don't expect anything Earth shattering from the Japan
     show, though.

                Total Time - 71:48

Notes:
  a) "Pasadena Partyslammers" is another CD pressing of the October 15, 1977
     soundboard performance by Van Halen before the release of their first
     album.  The mixing is pretty raw, however, this is a good representation
     of the band from the very early days.  This concert continues to be the
     most copied show simply because it still remains (as of mid-2001) as one
     of the best audio recordings from the Dave-era.
  b) The final three tracks are from Kyoto, Japan on September 3, 1979.  These
     tracks are from an audience recording released as a full show on two
     discs titled "Shooting Irons".  The sound quality is less than perfect as
     far as audience recordings come.  Highlights include Dave humming a
     little of the W&CF album when he introduces FYLT and Eddie playing the
     latter part of his guitar solo at the beginning of the final track, YRGM.
  c) It is the opinion of some that these last three tracks are a total waste
     of disc space due to the sound quality, however for many VH fans, any
     recordings of Dave-era shows will never be considered "a waste of disc
     space".
  d) The front cover states at the top that this is an "Ultimate Sound
     Recording". The front artwork highlights Eddie playing guitar with Mike,
     Dave and Alex emerging from stars to the left.  The back artwork uses the
     same photo used for the cover of "Gazzari's '74" except that a map of
     Pasadena, California has been added to the background.  Rear artwork also
     incorrectly indicates the Pasadena show as being from December 20, 1977.
     Photos published in The Inside magazine have been used throughout the
     inserts.  The artwork is very high quality.
  e) This disc appears to be a repressing of the "Civic Pride" bootleg due to
     the same identical times that appear for all tracks.  No changes are
     evident from comparative listening of the two discs. The total running
     time for both discs match exactly at 71:48.  The disc indicates that it
     was pressed in Taiwan.

Notes:
  a) The CD itself is black with orange printing.

  c) The front sleeve is bi-folded but blank on the inside and a track
     listing on the back of it.
  d) The back shows Edward during one of his guitar solos.
  e) The inside of the back cover, what you see when you lift the CD out,
     is also blank.
  f) The first 11 tracks are the same as the Young and Wild CD. They are
     from the 10/15/77 Pasadena show and seem just a little slow.

Notes:
  a) Sides one and two are from The Whisky A Go Go on 12/31/1977.
  b) "Fools" & "In for The Kill" from Side three are from the Santa Monica
     High School in 1976.
  c) The remainder of the tracks are outtakes from 1976 thru 1981.
  d) The audio is not exceptional, just OK.  However, "Young & Wild" is really
     poor quality.  It's almost like the recorder was in one room and VH was
     playing in another, with doors closed.
  e) "House of Pain" on Side four is more a jam of Eddie, Alex and Mike.  You
     can also hear strains of "On Fire" and "Mean Street".
  f) "Real Go Getter" seems to be played only by Eddie and Dave, in the same
     style as "Could This Be Magic?" from Women and Children First.
  g) Tracks appear identical to the "Whiskey n' Gin" boot.
  h) The album labels are yellow with a Rock Solid logo (ball peen hammer),
     and the track listing on them.  Some pressings came with different band
     names on the labels, like "Full Disclosure" and "The Wizards Quest".

              Total Time - 57:16
Notes:

  a) The cover is a great live photo of Ed circa 1978 playing his yellow and
     black striped Kramer, with the original "VH" logo embossed over it, but
     not obscuring it. The top of the cover says "VAN HALEN SUMMERTIME BLUES".
     It's printed on decent glossy photo paper.
  b) The back cover has Dave and Ed playing live, with Dave holding an
     acoustic guitar around his neck and Ed playing his red, black and white
     striped Kramer. The top right of the back cover states when and where the
     shows were recorded, but a mistake is made in reference to the Dallas
     show. It says that the last 5 tracks, denoted with an asterik, were
     performed in "Dallas, USA 1978". This is wrong, as you can hear Dave tell
     the audience "Paris, I love you all!" prior to the start of track #10.
  c) Also noted towards the bottom center of the back cover is "Limited No.",
     with a serial number next to it.
  d) The disc is a CD-R, with a plain white label.
  e) The Whiskey gig is extremely clear, and while on other discs this show
     has been described as having been "speeded up", that's not the case here.
     The mastering process from vinyl to CD has been nothing short of perfect.
     Van Halen are introduced as "Warner Brothers recording artists, Van 
     Halen!".
  f) There is some fade-out in between a few tracks, and the band plays 4
     unreleased songs. The two standouts of these unreleased songs are "Just
     What You Wanted" and "No More Waiting". Of special note, the intro to
     "No More Waiting" later surfaced as the intro to "Take Me Back (Deja
     Vu)" off their 1995 release, "Balance". Ed plays it with an electric
     guitar, rather than an acoustic one, for "No More Waiting".
  g) The "backwards horn noise" which starts off "Runnin' with the Devil",
     is an annoyance throughout the Whiskey portion. It goes off at any given
     moment.
  h) This being a New Year's Eve gig, Dave asks everyone how their year went
     and proceeds to tell the audience he judges the year on "how good the
     Thai sticks were, and they were pretty good this year!" He then shouts,
     "Let's hear it for Thailand! Let's hear it for Colombia! Let's hear it
     for Mexico! Let's hear it for Edward!", and the start "No More Waiting".
  i) Ed's "Eruption" is nothing short of phenominal here.
  j) The Paris gig is great. Sound quality is comparable to a soundboard
     recording, though it might have been recorded from the first few rows.
     One of the best sounding Van Halen with Dave gigs from this era.
  k) Dave tries to get the audience going by saying "We're Van Halen playing
     for you here!", and when he gets a lackluster response, he shouts "Let's
     try that one more time...WE'RE VAN HALEN!", and receives a somewhat
     better response.
  l) Overall, an outstanding disc, considering the eras and recording
     equipment used uring this period. Pick it up and add it to your VH
     collection, if not just for the 4 unreleased songs they play during the
     Whiskey set.

5) Summertime Blues        5:10

Total Time - 41:16

Notes:
  a) Soundboard recording, very good quality.  There are 3 or 4 very small
     gaps in the recording near the start of songs, possibly a result of
     sector boundary errors in a compact disc source.
  b) The date printed on the artwork and LP labels of August 7, 1978 is
     incorrect.  This show took place on April 3, 1978, which was a month
     into their first tour.  This is a small club, and wasn't part of the
     tour with Journey & Montrose.
  c) Track 5 on Side A is listed as "Atomic Punk" on the rear cover, but
     "Light Up The Sky" on the LP label.  The correct title is "Atomic Punk".
  d) The text on the jacket refers to a CD.  The LPs were originally supposed
     to come with a CD copy of the show, but the CD was scrapped at the last
     moment.
  e) Issued on clear vinyl, there were also a couple of copies on black vinyl.
     A total of 12 copies were made, 10 of which were clear, and 2 were black.
  f) Artwork is an orange-ish/brown-ish background.  The front shows a classic
     black & white shot of the band on stage with the VH logo at the top.  The
     back has a black & white promo shot of the band.  Info about the show is
     at the top, the set list is at the bottom, a Pogo's logo is on the right,
     and VH info is on the left.
  g) Front artwork for the clear vinyl copies have a "limited edition clear
     vinyl" circle near the upper right.  The black vinyl copies don't have
     that circle.
  h) The LP labels have a Mad Hatters logo along with the set list.
  i) Released in October 2016.

     the same pattern stripes that are on the front but the stripes
     are dark green.

     ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
     POWER STRUGGLE
     FORSEE THE RESULTS
     SPECTATOR INTEREST

Notes:
  a) The LP is in a plain white cardboard folder but whoever made it put
     a cardboard covering over that.
  b) All the pictures are brown-ish...sepia tone type color. On the front
     there is a small pic of the band at the top, a small pic of Eddie and
     Dave at the bottom and a bigger picture of Dave and Eddie in the
     middle.
  c) On the back there is a pic of Mike and Alex in the middle (a wrap
     around from the front), a small picture of Eddie holding up a guitar,
     and along the right side are 7 close-ups of Eddie playing (looks like
     it is from a Guitar magazine lesson).
  d) An alternate cover exists which eliminates the "Profile:" name from the
     artwork.
  e) The labels on the record are plain white, no markings.
  f) "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" on Side 1 fades out right at the part in the
     middle of the song where Dave says "no time to f*ck around".
  g) "D.O.A." on Side 2 starts in the middle of the last verse.
  h) "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" on Side 2 fades out around the same place
     as it did on the 1st side; right before Dave's long rap in the middle.
  i) All of Side 1 and the first three songs on Side 2 are the same as on
     "Stand By Your Side" Theatre Mogador, Paris (May 10, 1978).
  j) The last three songs on Side 2 are from the show in Anaheim, CA when
     they parachuted onto the stage.

     May 10, 1978.  Confusion probably stems from the US way of listing May
     10th as: 5/10, which translates to October 5th in Europe, where they list
     day/month/year vs. month/day/year.
  b) LP is housed in a plain white jacket (front and back).
  c) Insert is black & white on yellow half sheet of paper.  A promo shot of
     the band has "Van Halen" down the left side, and the title of the show
     underneath.  The (incorrect) set list is at the bottom.
  d) The labels on the record are plain white, no markings.
  e) "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" on Side A fades out right at the part in the
     middle of the song where Dave says "no time to f*ck around".
  f) "D.O.A." on Side B starts in the middle of the last verse.
  g) "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" on Side B fades out around the same place as it
     did on the 1st side; right before Dave's long rap in the middle.
  h) All of Side A and the first three songs on Side B are the same as on
     "Stand By Your Side" Theatre Mogador, Paris (May 10, 1978).
  i) The last three songs on Side B are from the show in Anaheim, CA when they
     parachuted onto the stage.

     and "D.O.A.".

     everywhere else on the set, it lists CD-080515250.

  h) The rear artwork shows a live shot of Dave, a VH logo, the Cellar Dwellers
     logo, and the set list.  Like the back of the booklet, the Ipswitch songs

     is performed with alternate lyrics that I can't make out.
  e) Good performance, except it seems that Dave either forgot words or
     forgot to sing in some places.
  f) A couple of dropouts.
  g) Ed tunes up a lot.
  h) Not bad, though, especially as an insight into the development of
     the later tunes.

Notes:
  a) Master for this release was an unknown generation cassette tape and it's
     lineage is: SBD(?)>ANA(?)>MDmaster>CDmaster
  b) The last track, Bottoms Up, is cut mid-song.  This is the way the master
     tape is/was.
  c) Audio quality is A+.  It doesn't get any better than this from 1978!  This
     is a soundboard recording that also has some audience mixed in with it.
     Very nice!

  b) Lineage: Master cass>CDR(2)>EAC w/offset>WAV>FLAC

     show is basically EXACTLY the same as it appears on the original master
     cassette that was recorded on the night.
  e) The equipment used was a tape recorder that was smuggled into the show.
  f) The location of the taper is believed to be up in the circle.
  g) There is a fade out between "You Really Got Me" and "D.O.A." because
     of worry over the tape running out, neither of the songs are affected.

15) Bottoms Up                 8:36

                 Total Time - 65:33
Notes:
  a) This is a A-/B++ audience recording. Dave's vocals come through real
     clear, but Eddie's guitar and Mike's bass seem a little distant.  The
     last two tracks come through real clear. Audience noise is very minimal.
     Sound would compare to "LISTEN UP EDDIE".
  b) All liner notes are printed on very high quality glossy paper.
  c) The front cover is a live picture of the band on their first tour with
     the VH symbol as a backdrop for the stage.
  d) The inside foldout is various live picture of the band members from the
     early days.
  e) The inside cover is a picture of Dave holding a mic with a purple light
     shining on him.
  f) The under disc tray is a picture of Eddie sitting on the roll bar of a
     Jeep Renegade.
  g) The back is the VH album cover logo on black with the set list in red on
     both sides and the location above that in white letters in a red
     backdrop.  Shinjuku Hall is misspelled Shinjuk Hall.
  h) The disc is a CD-R that is silk-screened red/orange (no sticky label)
     with "Shinjuk 78" printed in bold letters.
  i) Track 3, "Bass Solo" is not listed on the rear cover, thus throwing off
     all subsequent track numbers by one.  The track list above is correct.
     The rear cover shows track 15 as "Never Out". This does not exist on the
     disc.
  j) Track 5, "Atomic Punk" contains a short drum solo.
  k) During "Ain't Talking 'Bout Love", the band does a little jam session so
     Dave can tell everyone he feels "sexy"!!
  l) This is one of the first and probably only live recording after VAN HALEN
     was released to include the song "Last Night".

                Total Time - 73:25
Notes:
  a) Track 12 is "You Really Got Me", but is printed "Meat" on the back cover.
  b) Track 15 is from 6/17/78, however the date printed on the back cover is
     6/17/98!  Dave's voice is hard to hear over the music.
  c) Track 16 is listed as being from 3/31/84. This is just Edward playing
     solo during an interview with Lisa Robinson.
  d) The disc is a CD-R with a white printable surface that is stamped:
     Van Halen
     Shinjuku 78
     GTM-104
  e) There is a long instrumental introduction in the beginning of "Little
     Dreamer".
  f) "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" is not included on this disc (possibly for
     running time problems). It should be between "Ice Cream Man" and
     "Eruption".  "Ice Cream Man" fades out at the end and then fades into
     Eddie's solo.
  g) Audio quality is slightly better than "Live in Tokyo 1978".

Notes:
  a) Audience recording.
  b) Lineage: Audience Analog Master to DAT to CDR to EAC to TLH FLAC Level 8
  c) Presented by KRW_CO
  d) No EQ or any other tampering.
  e) There is a cut (tape flip) after "Ice Cream Man", and the start of
     "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" is missing.
  f) After the end of the show, the last track continues for over 5 minutes
     with band intros and a portion of "Java Blues" from Rick Danko recorded
     live, but with an unknown date and location. (possibly Tokyo May 13, 1978)
     Best guess is that the Van Halen show was recorded over this other one,
     and when it was transferred to digital, the extra wasn't trimmed off.
  g) Released in mid-2014.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording taken from the master cassette (pictured on the art).
  b) Track 2, "BGM" presumably stands for Background Music.
  c) Track 9 is listed as "Hang 'Em High" on the artwork, but is actually
     "Down In Flames".
  d) Front artwork shows the band in Japan in front of a bus or van.  Show
     location and date in a circle in the upper right.  Title of show along
     the bottom.
  e) Inside is a grid of other releases, presumably from the same company.
  f) The OBI strip includes much of the basic information, plus an image of
     the 1978 Japanese tour book, and the set list written in Japanese.
  g) Back artwork is a collection of images.  The band is standing outside
     a rural house, Dave with an umbrella.  Two different flyers for the show
     are in the lower right.  Pictures of the original cassette and J-card are
     shown, along with the setlist, Japan tour dates and recording ownership
     information.
  h) The CD has a background image of Eddie's red/white/black striped
     "Frankenstein" guitar.
  i) Two alternate covers exist.  They both use the Japanese Rising Sun Flag
     as a background, but one has the first two tracks listed, and the other
     does not.  "Down In Flames" is listed as "Last Night".
  j) An alternate back cover also uses the Rising Sun Flag, but superimposes
     a stage shot of the band, has the set list (minus the first two tracks)
     and a scan of a ticket stub.  "Down In Flames" is listed as "Last Night".
  k) Two alternate disc artworks exist, mostly identical, but one has a ticket
     stub from the 21st, and the other a stub from the 22nd.
  l) Released in March 2016.

     Tracking was done on a standalone burner so it might be a little off on

     flip between the end of ATBL and the beginning of "Ice Cream Man".
  d) This is not to be confused with the alternate master source of this.

Notes:
  a) Cover is a stage shot of Mike, Dave, and Ed. Mike with
     Jack Daniels bass, Dave with (Panama?) hat and goofy
     expression, Ed with red/white bicycle tape guitar.
  b) Inside insert is a close-up of Ed and Dave; back of
     insert is somebody's hand playing what looks like a
     Les Paul.
  c) "Down In Flames" is mislabeled "You're No Good".
  d) Tracks 4-9 are same as 10-15 on "Eyes Of The Night".
  e) Sound quality is B, comparable to Eyes of the Night but
     a little less bassy. Sonic Tokyo has much better sound
     than, say, "Rockin' Into The Night", a CD from two days
     later in Osaka.

  e) This a decent sounding thing. Not stellar but not bad, and better than
     most of what's out there. There's some tape hiss but nothing to get
     worked up about. Also there is an annoying noise artifact which is soft,
     but it's there. Unlike other copies, this is the complete show and does
     not have "On Fire" chopped off. Sounds like it runs a hair slow.
     Remastering made it better, including suppressing the noise artifact
     and bringing the sound more up front.
  f) Released in January 2006.

                           Total Time - 70:09
Notes:

  a) The front cover has is black and is divided up like a tic-tac-toe
     board or like the Brady Bunch intro.  In the center is the VH logo
     with D.A.A Dreamer printed underneath it (on the side of the disc the
     title is correct and says Van Halen D.O.A Dreamer).  The eight other
     squares are all pictures of the band.  Each picture is outlined in
     yellow and stands alone from the others. All the pictures are of
     great quality and a brief description is listed below:
       i) Upper left hand corner.  This is a old picture of Mikey.  He is
          holding his bass and pointing with his right hand.
      ii) Top center.  Dave is running around on stage and is dressed in red
          garb.
     iii) Upper right hand corner.  Eddie is in front of Alex's kit.  This
          picture is a little dark.
      iv) Middle right. Dave is belting lyrics.
       v) Center. D.A.A. Dreamer with logo
      vi) Middle Left. Dave and Eddie.  Eddie has his guitar between his
          legs.
     vii) Lower Left. Mike and Eddie.  Eddie is point to the crowd and Mikey
          is singing.
    viii) Bottom Center. Alex is standing up behind his kit and it looks
          like he is pouring a beer all over himself.
      ix) Lower Right.  Eddie kicking his axe up for a solo.
  b) The inside cover has a picture of all four band members jumping up
     in the air.  It was obviously taken in Japan, because the title of a
     Japanese building can be seen behind them.  It looks like all four band
     members are sporting bell bottoms!
  c) The inside cover is just one single page with the above pictures on
     it.
  d) The back cover is black with the song titles on it.  Little Dreamer
     is misspelled Little Drumer.  A picture of Eddie with his Destroyer is
     to the right of the lyrics.
  e) The jewel case has a black disc tray, but there is a picture on the
     back inside cover.  The picture looks like it is a shot of Dave from
     the back.  He is standing on stage in a stadium arena.  Some audience
     members have a huge poster of the VH I album cover and are holding it
     up.  This picture is definitely not from Japan (judging from the
     audiences appearance).
  f) The disc is black with a red center.  D. O. A. Dreamer is printed on
     the disc.
  g) Track 5: "Where Were You" is really "Down In Flames".  This title is
     on the UNCD's Disc II.  Dave intros the song by saying that they are
     going to do one off the next album called "Down In Flames"
  h) This is an audience recording that gets a little better as the disc
     progresses on.  Alex's drums sound a little muffled in the beginning
     and seem to fluctuate in and out of clarity.  Dave's lyrics are a
     little hard to hear at first.  The tape player kicks in and out a
     couple of times during the recording.
     You are able to hear a lot of clapping, whistling, and screaming from
     the crowd.  Dave does a lot of his rapping throughout the concert.
  i) Eddie's solo sounds fairly close to cover with a little improvisation.
     It is a nice variety.  The solo ends with a smooth transition into D.O.A.
  j) Overall, this is a B- to B+ audience recording. It a nice raw
     audience recording and is one of the few boots that I have seen with
     Down in Flames  on the set list.  If you have a chance to pick it up
     for your collection it would be a good addition.

     somewhere else on Rockin' Into The Night. Also, Can't Sleep
     at Night has the entire "Summertime Blues"; the hot jammin'
     at the end is edited off on Rockin Into The Night.
  b) Overall sound quality is slightly better on "Can't Sleep at
     Night", B to B- audience. There are some volume fluctuations
     and lots of audience noise.
  c) Lots more between-song banter on this one, including a few
     minutes of solid clapping between DOA and YRGM, and YRGM and
     Bottoms Up.
  d) Cover is an old shot of the band, Mike and Alex waving
     sparklers. Rear is another old shot, Van Halen standing on
     the roof of a Japanese building. "I'm The One", and "Down in
     Flames" are mislabeled "Show Me Your Love", and "You're No
     Good", respectively.

Notes:
  a) The front has a picture of Ed, circa 1978.  The back has got a nice
     full color closeup shot of DLR.  Sound quality is so-so for a
     recording from this era.  All the dialog between songs has been edited
     out in this one.
  b) An interesting song on this one is "Down In Flames."  Would anyone out
     there know if this was a Van Halen cover, or was it an unreleased
     Van Halen song that they just happened to play in concert?
  c) Dave isn't too trashed in this one, and actually does sing most the
     lyrics.

       Running Time Disc 1 - 40:39

Total Show Time - 80:21

Notes:
  a) The front cover is a photo of Dave and Ed from the same time period as
     the recording, with Ed playing his black and white Charvel.  They are
     bathed in red light.  The Sam-era VH logo is super-imposed over them.
     "Van Halen" is written down the right front, with "First Eruption in
     OSAKA 1978" across the bottom front.
  b) The back cover is a posterized photo of Dave and Ed live, also from
     around the same time period as the recording.  Ed is once again playing
     his black and white striped Charvel, Dave is on his knee in a crouched
     position. You can see part of Mike in the background.
  c) Both discs are silkscreened black, but are not identified which is disc
     1 or disc 2.
  d) "Where Were You" is incorrect..the track is actually "Down in Flames".
  e) "D.O.A." is missing from the setlist printed on the back cover.
  f) The overall sound quality is decent, probably an audience recording
     judging from the slight distance in the sound.  (b+/b)

     as of this time.
  d) There's distortion present throughout, however the quality does get
     better as it goes along.  Digital editing was very minimal, to get rid of
     prolonged silence at the beginning and end of the recording, as well as a
     tape flip gap.

Notes:
  a) Tracks 1 - 11 are from Oklahoma in 1978.  The rear artwork incorrectly
     lists the date for this show as July 15, 1978.
  b) Track 5 (Atomic Punk) and Track 7 (Feel Your Love Tonight) contain
     Alex's Drum Solos.
  c) Tracks 12 - 14 are from unknown venues on unknown dates in 1979.
  d) Very good quality soundboard recording (ie:low audience noise) Sound is
     pretty even throughout.  All instruments can clearly be heard.  Dave has
     some cool raps between the songs.  There are a couple of edits between
     the end of the last song and the encore, probably to shorten up time.
  e) The 3 bonus songs sound professionally recorded, possibly from a video
     source?  Dave's raps are edited down to him just saying the song titles.
     There is a noticeable crackly kind of sound during the 3 bonus songs,
     some RF type of interference perhaps?
  f) Released in July or August 2001.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, fair quality (at best).
  b) Lineage: unknown
  c) This version started with a multi (read: many) generational cassette.
     The left channel faded in and out, so it was cut and the right copied
     over to the left.  It was mono anyway, so it really didn't make any
     difference in the sound.  It was spatialized a bit, and EQ'ed pretty
     severely to get rid of the muffly bottom and bring out the higher end
     (mostly high mids; there wasn't really anything above 6khz). Still
     sounds pretty crappy.
  d) Track 11 (Bottoms Up!) fades out.
  e) Released June 11, 2013.

Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love

Side 2
------
Guitar Solo
You Really Got Me
Bottoms Up

Notes:
  a) The track listing printed on the cover has some mistakes:
     1) Bottoms Up is listed as "Heart Attack".
     2) Feel Your Love Tonight is listed as "I Can't Wait To Feel".
     3) Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love is listed as "Im Talking About Love".
  b) The front cover depicts a woman on the telephone with the credits
     underneath her while a suspicious looking guy in sunglasses lurks around
     the doorway. The song titles are on the left-hand edge perpendicular to
     the edge of the sleeve.
  c) The credits read as follows:
       Produced by April Dancer
       Photo Back Cover: RENÉ
       Cover Design Pygnosis Inc.

Side 2
Guitar Solo
You Really Got Me

Notes:
  a) The track listing as shown on the cover doesn't match what is on the

      Heart Attack
      Jamie Crying
      I Can't Wait to Feel Your Love
      Talkin' About Love
  b) The front cover is back and white and glued on.  It shows all four band
     members posing for the shot while wearing roller skates.  Some Japanese
     text is centered at the bottom.  The VH logo and name of this release is
     in the upper right corner.
  c) The back cover is completely blank.
  d) Despite the information relating to Japan on the artwork, this recording
     is from the Anaheim Stadium 1978 show.
  e) The same plates used to press the "Suspicious Performance" LP were used
     to press this release.  The "VH 106" markings on the LPs from the
     Suspicious Performance release are crossed out and "7501-1" added.
  f) The audio quality is an average audience recording.

Notes:
  a) Lineage: AUD>Master cass>???>CDR(?)>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>Soundforge
      Audacity editing>WAV>CDWave>FLAC(level 5)
  b) Quality: B++
  c) There were two versions of this spread--an "unequalized" version and an
     "equalized" version. This copy came from the "equalized" version which
     sounds better than the "unequalized" version.
  d) The speed has been corrected downwards by 5% and both channels amplified
     to 99.9% peak level. 
  e) The quality is VG+, with a spacious arena sound. It's a pretty clear
     recording. The one drawback is some idiot, possibly the taper, who 
     continually screams into the taping device.
  f) This show has an interesting setlist. "I'm The One" is cut, the only
     recorded 1978 show which has that. In its place is "Feel Your Love
     Tonight".  "Little Dreamer" is also gone and in its place is "Jamie's
     Cryin'".  There is no introduction into "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love",
     they go right from the end of "Ice Cream Man" into ATBL.
  g) There is a cut at the 1:24 mark in "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love".
  h) The date of this show has been disputed in the past.  The correct date,
     per the Black Sabbath official website, is November 19, 1978. This was
     a Sunday. Indeed, Dave for whatever reason makes it a point to say
     "Sunday afternoon" over and over.
  i) Despite the idiot's screaming into the taping device, this is a nice
     listen even for casual fans.
  j) Released in November 2005.

Notes:
  a) This is similar to the "On Fire In Fresno" show of 3/25/79 at Selland
     Arena.  The 3 demo songs that are on On Fire In Fresno, are left off of
     this recording.  World Wide Tour 1979 contains a couple of songs that
     are left off On Fire In Fresno.  Specifically, "Dance The Night Away" and
     "You're No Good".
  b) This is a high quality gold CD-R with color inserts on front and
     back.
  c) The front cover is black and contains 3 concert photos of the band
     from the early 80's.  There is a photo of Mikey and Edward in the lower
     right hand corner.  It has Edward jumping off of Alex's drum platform
     doing the splits over Mikey.  Quite cool!
  d) The inside cover is white and contains a photograph of the band all
     on stage holding hands presumably before or after their encore.
  e) The back cover is the same photo as the inside cover only larger. 
     It has all the song titles in red along the left hand side.  In the
     right upper corner it says in red lettering,  "Live at the Selland
     Arena in Fresno, Calif March 25th, 1979 on the opening night of
     the second VH world tour."
  f) This is a nice CD-R to obtain becasue it has a few extra cuts not
     found on the "On Fire In Fresno" disc.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording. Quality: A.  This is a verified 1st generation
     copy, and one of the best quality 1979 recordings.  The only thing
     better than this copy would be the master tape, which hasn't surfaced.
  b) Lineage: AUD > 1st gen cass > Sony tape deck > TDK standalone burner >
      CDR(2) > EAC(secure/offset) > WAV > FLAC(level 5)
  c) Different transfer of the same first gen tape originally shared in 2004.
     There were a couple of errors, and the transfer was done by a different
     person.  This one is digital error free, done with a standalone and
     tracked with a standalone.  It also sounds a little better.
  d) There are two tiny gaps.  The first is at the very beginning of "Outta
     Love Again" (track 9) which is on the tape, and runs from about 0.30
     seconds to 1.70 seconds in that track.  The second is between tracks 10
     and 11 for a tape flip.
  e) Released in August 2006.

                            Total Time - 68:56
Notes:
  a) The front cover is the same format as "Woman & Children 1st" Dark
     blue border with a silver edge. Picture of Dave, Mike and Ed (circa
     1982). Stage shot of Dave doing the one foot kick over Mike's head
     while Eddie is dressed in red/white overalls playing extremely high
     on the neck.
  b) The back cover is the same as "Women & Children 1st" with song
     listings in a very nice font. Black letters on a silver background
     on a blue sleeve.
  c) The disc is gray with silver lettering. Top of the disc has the words
     "Amsterdam" along with "Not for sale, promotional copy" below it.
     Bottom of disc has the title "Light Up The Sky" on it. Songs are
     abbreviated and listed on the right side of the disc. Left side has
     copyright information.
  d) This is an audience recording that gets about a B/B+ rating.
     The source is definitely lifted from the original boot record as you
     can hear slight crackles. The sound on this cd is one of an "intimate"
     setting without the distant , hollow big arena sound. Ed's guitar
     sound is basic and gutsy and along with Daves vocals both are clearly
     distinguishable. Mike's bass is heard but there is no depth. This is
     not a "crank out" shitty audience recording. Audience noise is very
     minimal.
  e) This is a very "professional looking package. The  colors are deep
     and the picture looks glossy. This comes in a cardboard sleeve as
     opposed to a jewel case. It's packaged like a mini 5" VH album. What
     makes this a "collector" item is that it has a song (story) "The Story
     Of Joe". It gives you the essence of what VH was all about.

  c) The sound here is really good, and rivals the Fresno 3-25-79 recording.
     It starts off a bit rough, but it seems the taper turned his mic toward
     the stage and the sound gets and stays better from the middle of the
     first song (at 2:24 mark) out.
  d) There is small master tape issue (at 1:59 mark) on "Runnin' With the
     Devil" but not too bad.
  e) As originally shared, the last three tracks on disc 2 were listed as
     "D.O.A.", "You Really Got Me", and "Bottoms Up!" which was incorrect, and
     also led to incorrect rear artwork.

  b) Quality: B+/B
  c) Tape is probably around a 3rd or 4th gen. Pretty clear and enjoyable.
     The tape ran fast, like all other copies.  Speed corrected on the tape
     deck.  There's a soft crackle throughout from the tape, however this is
     only noticeable on headphones, and only at a loud volume. Stereo
     separation is pleasant with the drums shifted more towards the left,
     vocals more towards the right, and the bass and guitar centered.
  d) Digital editing was minimal; WAV file ripped from the CDR, got rid of
     gaps, faded out the ends of both discs. Tracking was done with CDWave.
  e) This is probably not for the very picky.
  f) Released in May 2005.

      Sony RCD-W500C standalone burner > CDR(M) > EAC(secure/offset) > WAV >
      Soundforge Audacity minimal editing > WAV > CDWave > FLAC(level 5)
  c) First generation cassette transfered by Lou in 2006
  d) Very good sound, louder, fuller and better than the 2005 transfer and
     likely the best we'll ever hear of this show.  Transfer was done with a
     standalone and then ripped to the computer via EAC, and converted to
     FLAC.
  e) The editing consisted only of deleting gaps of silence, splicing and
     cutting tracks to make the show as continuous and seamless as possible.
     Otherwise this is a raw tape transfer with no equalization,
     normalization, noise reduction or any other hocus pocus.  All cuts are
     on the tape.  If you had this tape and put it in your tape deck, this is
     what you'd hear.
  f) Cover art has a shot from this show with Alex, Dave and Eddie.  The show
     location and date are in the lower right corner.
  g) Back cover shows Eddie and Dave.  The setlist is along the right-hand
     side.
  h) Disc 1 artwork is the same shot as the front cover.
  i) Disc 2 artwork is the same shot as the back cover.
  j) Pictures of the cassette tape and J-card were included in the digital
     release.

Mother's Day Meltdown
---------------------
Format : LP
Label  : Roxstarz-7902 A/B
Source : (see notes) Boston Orpheum Theatre - Boston, MA - June 13, 1979

Side 1
Running with the Devil
Dance the Night Away
Feel Your Love
Outta Love Again

Side 2
Aint Talkin About Love
Bottoms Up
Joe Gunn

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, source unknown.  All songs fade in and fade out
     with the exception of the last two tracks.  No mention of a city is made
     by Dave.  Those that have heard this recording believe that it is a
     carefully edited version of the Jaap eden Hal show from Amsterdam on
     June 15th 1979 with "Bottoms Up" and "Joe Gunn" being from a different
     source.
  b) This is a single black LP with a white label.
  c) "Outta Love Again" is listed but it is not on the record.
  d) There is a Guitar Solo on Side 2 that is not listed.
  e) "Bottoms Up" and "Joe Gunn" ("The Story of Joe") are not separated, but
     "The Story of Joe" is incomplete.  The song fades out when Dave says
     "this here's Joe motherf*cker!".
  f) The cover is a wrap-around ivory colored paper copy.  There are two
     pictures of the band circa 1979.  Under one of the pictures it reads,
     "recorded live at the Boston Orpheum Theatre June 13, 1979".  Under the
     other picture it reads, "Mothers Day Meltdown, Roxstarz-7902".  It also
     has the old VH logo and a sticker that reads 9.99.
  g) The back cover has the (incorrect) song listing and two old VH logos.
     Also stamped twice on the back is "LIMITED TO 250 COPIES".  Once in the
     upper left corner of the cover itself, the other stamp is under the song
     listing.  At the bottom it reads, "Unauthorized duplication is a
     violation of appliable law. Just say NO!".
  h) An alternate cover exists with a black background, a shot of the band on
     stage, and the name of the band and title of the show in red text.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, quality: B
  b) Lineage: AUD>low-gen cass>CDRx>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>FLAC(level5)>remastering>FLAC(level5)
  c) It is suspsected that the analog source is either a Master or 1st gen.
  d) The sound, despite being low-gen, wasn't what it should have been due to
     the poor tape transfer.  The digital errors were cleaned up as much as
     possible. Crowd noise was edited towards the end to fit this onto one CD.
     The sound is a little tinny but clear. The remaster brings out the bass
     as much as possible.
  e) This is the opening night of Van Halen's European leg of the "World
     Vacation" tour. This is the typical 1979 set list which features the drum
     solo in "SGMAD," Dave's raps before "On Fire," the bass solo after "On
     Fire," an extended "Feel Your Love Tonight" with the "Romeo Delight"
     tease, the extended "ATBL" and extended "YRGM".  This is a solid,
     enjoyable show.
  f) Released on December 23, 2004.

  c) Great show from the band as they make their way through Europe
     headlining the "II" tour. The crowd is really into the band when when
     Roth tells them they are "blowing his mind" it feels sincere and not the
     typical Roth hyperbole. The taper did a nice job of capturing the show,
     pretty good quality for 30 years ago.
  d) The tracks labeled "Halen" contain the crowd chanting "Halen" between
     songs.
  e) Released in August 2011.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, very good quality.
  b) Track 1 on Disc 2 (Fools Intro) starts with Edward doing the intro for
     "Fools", and Dave joins in after a bit.  However, it never gets rolling
     and seems to end with some on-stage antics that the crowd responds to,
     but we the audio audience can't really imagine.
  c) Track 2 on Disc 2 (Feel Your Love Tonight) contains an extended Drum Solo
     in the middle.
  d) Front artwork combines a shot of Edward over a shot of Dave.  The VH logo
     is centered near the top along with the title of the show, with the
     location and date in small white text underneath.
  e) The inside-back artwork is made up of 4 shots of Dave and Edward live on
     stage.  The band names and what role they play in the band are listed.
  f) The under-tray artwork is a shot of Dave with a samurai sword.
  g) The rear artwork combines a shot of Edward and a shot of Dave on stage.
     The set list is at the left in yellow text on a dark background.
  h) The artwork for the discs is plain black with a dark yellow color used
     for the simple text.  Centered above the hub is "Japan II", with the
     "Disc One" and Disc Two" markings to the right of the hub.  Otherwise,
     both discs look the same.
  i) Released in 2011.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording.
  b) Lineage: Master recording. See taper notes below. WAV files converted to
      FLAC level 8 with Traders' Little Helper. Sector boundary errors
      corrected with TLH.
  c) Taper: "Cdvision2"
  d) The recording equipment was probably a Sanyo portable cassette recorder
     with the condenser mic that came with it.
  e) The original digital transfer was done around 1999 using an early '80s
     Sony deck and a Creative sound card that had analog inputs.  An old
     version of Nero was used for the capture.  It was burned to 2 CDs with
     no track breaks.  Later the CDs were extracted and the wav files dumped
     to computer.  Software called "Spin it Again" (used mainly for vinyl
     rips) was used to raise the levels, as the original rip had lower than
     normal levels.
  f) Track 10 on Disc 1 (More DLR Talking)  includes a tease of "Eyes of the
     Night".
  g) Front artwork shows Dave and Ed on stage, Ed has his black/yellow
     striped guitar.
  h) Rear artwork shows Dave and Ed on stage, wearing the same clothes,
     possibly from the same show.  The set list is in white text, along with
     show and recording info.  A torn ticket stub from the show is also
     pictured.
  i) Artwork for both discs is the same Dave & Ed shot from the front cover.
     The disc number is indicated to the far left of the hub.
  j) Alternate front artwork is a combination of 2 ticket stubs from the show.
  k) Released on November 2, 2013.

8)  In a Simple Rhyme *            4:37
9)  Take Your Whiskey Home **      0:54

                     Total Time - 33:18
*  instrumental
** intro only

Notes:
  a) The audio level on this disc is VERY LOW. It's poorly mixed with
     bass and drums dominating the sound.  However, if you turn the
     bass way down and the volume way up, you can actually coax a
     pretty decent sound out of this disc with the last few tracks
     being the most listenable.
  b) The liner notes indicate that "studio chatter is present" and
     other members "noodling around". This is a gross exaggeration
     or even just a bold faced lie. Unless, you consider Dave saying
     "Take one" at the begining of track #9 to be "studio chatter".
     Any "extra noodling" cannot be heard.
  c) The cover of the disc is EXACTLY like the official WACF release
     except that the background is red instead of green. The liner
     notes are copied directly from the offical release, too, but with
     the following paragraph added:
      "Contained on this CD are working versions of the songs that appeared
      on the finished album. The tracks are in various stages of completion,
      while some have different lyrics, others have no vocals at all! Studio
      chatter is present on some, on others various members can be heard
      noodling around on their respective instruments and so on. The
      variations are numerous and a good listen proves to be a fascinating
      study in observing a particular period of one of the most innovative
      and successful bands ever to emerge on the rock scene. Van Halen,
      Warner Special Projects and The Van Halen Fan Club have made a limited
      edition of this CD available to members only, free of charge as a thank
      you for their unfailing support and dedication over the years."
  d) In the top left corner of the liner notes, there is the number
     "PRO-5150". On the back of the CD, again a direct ripoff of the
     official release (with different track list obviously).
     The following line was added just above the copyright notice:
     "FAN CLUB ISSUE ONLY - NOT FOR SALE PRO-5150"
     Adjacent to the WB logo, is a Roaring Mouse logo.
  e) The rest of the inside has four large individual pictures and one
     small group shot.  It has the same credits, with the following
     differences:
     i) On the real WACF:
          "Cover Concept, Creative Consultant, Road Production
          Director: Pete Angelus".
          "Assistant to the Manager:  Diane Livingston.
          Art Director:  Richard Seireeni."
     ii) On the Studio Sessions:
          "Cover Concept, Creative Consultant:  The Fool and The
          Atomic Punk.  Art Director Pete Angelus."
          "Assistant to the Manager:  Diane Livingston.  Art
          Directors:  The Fool and The Atomic Punk."
     iii) Guitar Technician: Robin "Rude" Leiren on the original has a line
          over the "e" on Rude, on the Studio Session, no line over the "e".
  f) The disc itself is plain with simple text and with NO reference to
     Van Halen or WB at all. The title of the disc is "Buns and Tits First"
     and the number is BTF-449. It also indicates the disc is DDD and has
     the standard "all rights reserved" notice on there.

     numerous.

     background.  Various black & white promo shots of the band surround a

                      Total Time: 1:17:01

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, widely shared in 2008, and again in early 2016.
     Quality: B-
  b) Source: Analog Audience Recording (low gen, re-mastered)
  c) Lineage: CD-R copy (rec'd from trade)>dBpoweramp CD Ripper>FLAC(level 8)
  d) There is significant tape warble, either from excessive play or spending
     a little time in direct sunlight.  Still very enjoyable.  Dave is
     definitely on top of his game tonight.
  e) As shared, some of the track markers are off.  Most of the time, it's
     just the between song banter that's left at the start of the track,
     rather than at the end of the previous one.  However, the "Atomic Punk"
     track starts in the middle of the song where there is a cut (tape flip?).
     The actual start of the song is in the previous track.
  f) There is a fade out/in between "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and "Ice Cream
     Man".
  g) The shows seems to run fast to these ears, your mileage may vary.
  h) Main artwork front and for the disc shows the venue as the "Mecca Arena".
     The venue wasn't called "Mecca" until after this concert took place.
  i) Alternate front artwork has a blurred Woman and Children First album cover
     image as the background, and a ticket to the show in the lower right.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, quality: F
  b) Lineage: Lineage: AUD>unknown gen cass>Sony tape deck>TDK standalone
     CDR burner>CDR3>WAV>DBPowerAmp>FLAC(Level 5)
  c) Probably the worst recording of Van Halen ever made! Largely distorted,
     with the instruments bleeding over each other creating one morass of
     sound that is largely unlistenable. Only Roth's vocals stand out, and
     they are distorted too. A rare, but entirely cacophonous recording.
     The poor recording makes it difficult to discern or analyze this show.
     The clearest feature is a young woman who lets go of an ear-shattering
     scream now and then. The only somewhat clear moments are Ed's isolated
     guitar work on Take Your Whiskey Home, Women in Love and the Spanish Fly/
     Guitar Solo. He plays hauntingly during his solo, the only part of tape
     that provided prolonged clarity.
  d) The first track (Radio Interview) is from the day of the show.
  e) Track 2 (Bottoms Up) cuts in.
  f) Released in March 2005.

Notes:
  a) This is a soundboard recording.
  b) This is an incomplete show. It is missing the first 2 songs, "Romeo
     Delight" and "Bottom's Up" and the encore of "Everybody Wants Some" and
     "You Really Got Me".
  c) It has a little too much bass at times but everything still comes out
     clear.
  d) For some reason only half of "...and the cradle will rock" is on the
     disc.  It fades in during the middle of the song.
  e) Includes a killer version of "Atomic Punk".
  f) Dave is trashed and at one point stops talking and says, "I'm so fucked
     up I forgot what I was going to say".
  g) All in all one of the best 1980 shows from that tour!
  h) It is possible that this recording came from a video source.

Notes:
  a) This is a soundboard performance, but has a slight hiss throughout.
     This is probably an artifact of the analog recording it was transferred
     from.  Dave talks a lot through the show!  One of his best comments, or
     rather a story, is about a girl he met the previous night who took off
     her bra and panties and threw them onstage and "that was all she was
     wearing at the time".  He then goes on to say that he "woke up next to
     the girl the next day" and she turned and said "DAVE" (Dave says this in
     a high pitched voice and Eddie mocks him with his guitar) "What is it
     that you like about me so much?".  Dave: "I looked down at her with her
     big red eyes and told her, BABY, I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO FEEL YOUR LOVE
     TONIGHT!".  Then they start playing FYLT.  On the inside cover of the
     artwork it says "Extra special thanks to the 'girl with the big red eyes'
     for helping us all to remember Maryland."  This is where it comes from...
  b) In the beginning of "Take Your Whiskey Home", Eddie seems to be playing
     with his guitar with the main riff and keeps going on until Dave finally
     stops his yapping and starts to abruptly sing.
  c) "...And The Cradle Will Rock" fades in at the beginning.
  d) "Ice Cream Man" is cut off at the VERY end.
  e) Overall it's an excellant recording.  All insturments are well balanced.
     Not too much bass in it like in most other recordings.  The whole band
     gives an energetic performance.
  f) The artwork is very well done, looks VERY professional, printed on heavy
     glossy stock paper.  One of the best comments on the liner notes is:
     "Open the vaults, share the music."

Notes:
  a) Same show as "Remembering Largo" and "Bright Lights, Big Largo".
  b) The CD is silver and the artwork impressive.
  c) The cover based on WACF cover.  A textured picture of Ed's Frankenstrat
     is used as a background element on the cover, disc, and backcover...very
     nice.
  d) Inside cover opens up to reveal a shot of Dave and shot of Ed from the
     1980 tour.
  e) Undertray has a shot of Ed standing up against his speakers with his
     guitar.
  f) Show has been digitally remastered and sounds a little better than
     existing versions of this show in ciculation.  There is reduced hiss
     and Dave sounds a tad clearer.

  c) There are two equally bad recordings of this show. The "better"
     sounding one dies out after about 55 minutes, while the other is
     complete. It seems as though both were recorded from the last row up
     in the rafters of the auditorium.
  d) The "better" tape was used as the main source, the gaps and the end
     of the show were filled out with the other tape to build the complete
     show.
  e) Released in January 2012.

  c) Track 12 of Disc 1 (Bright Lights, Big City) is not the complete song.
  d) Track 7 of Disc 2 is just the crowd yelling and screaming as VH leaves
     the stage.
  e) The overall quality of the recording is very good and it's a great show.
     Dave talks to the crowd a bit about this being the last European show.
     For a recording of this age, the audio sounds very good.  Don't know
     what it sounded like before "re-mastering", but the results are great!
  f) The cover art shows Dave leaning up against Mikey, both singing.  "Van
     Halen" and the title are both in purple text along with the show location
     and date.
  g) The inside cover shows Dave in the air, Edward to the right with a
     backdrop of VH logos and is shot at such an angle that you can see the
     lighting guys hanging from the rig.
  h) The rear cover show Edward and Dave, the track listing and the following
     text:
      "Contained within is a 2 CD set is the LAST night of
       Van Halen's European tour for 1980. Recorded at
       London's Rainbow Ballroom
       This is a re-mastered edition of a rarely circulated
       show."
  i) Disc 1 has the title in an arc over the hub in light blue lettering
     and the track listing running down the right side.  The background is
     a multicolored image of various shapes.  Lots of blue, purple, green
     and yellow shades.
  j) Disc 2 is set up the same as Disc 1, but the background is a swirling
     pattern made up of shades of green, purple, yellow and white.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, VG.
  b) Lineage: Unknown gen cassette>CDR(?)>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>FLAC(level5)
  c) This is one of the better sounding North American VH 1980 shows. Not many
     of them sound good but this one is pretty decent.
  d) The sound in the right channel is quieter than in the left until Track 11.
     Tracks 11, 12 and most of 13 get even quieter in the right channel.  Late
     in Track 13 (Guitar Solo) there's a small cut and then the sound returns
     to normal.
  e) Bottoms Up! isn't in the setlist which usually was the second song of the
     1980 set. If they did it that night, this recording doesn't have it.
  f) Alternate artwork with a title of "Women & Children First Live" exists.
     The front is a copy of the WACF album artwork with the addition of "Live
     Baltimore Maryland" at the bottom.  The back is also based on the back of
     the album release with the set list in yellow text over the photo.
  g) Released in August 2004.

Total Running Time - 126:39

Notes:
  a) All of Disc 1 and Tracks 1-6 of Disc 2 are from the Uniondale, NY show.
  b) Disc 2 Track 7-17 are from the Glasgow, Scotland show.
  c) Uniondale is an audience recording, VG.
  d) Glasgow is an audience recording, G+.
  e) Lineage (both shows): unknown gen cass>RCA SCT-520 tape deck>PC>Goldwave .wav recorder>WAV>FLAC(level 5)
  f) Quality-wise, the Uniondale show is one of the better VH 1980 shows.
  g) The quality of the recording isn't that great on the Glasgow show but the
     performance is very energetic. Not only that, they run into technical
     problems in the opening number so they do a jam for 3 minutes to stall
     the crowd, which is pretty cool. 
  h) Any cut you hear in the Uniondale show, and there are a few of them, are
     on the analog source. At one point during the guitar solo you can hear
     one guy tell the taper that he's "not holding it right" referring to the
     recording device.
  i) The date is debatable on Uniondale, this is also labeled as 7/26/80. VH
     did play Uniondale on 7/26/80 as well as 7/27/80 but tapes of both
     nights do not exist, so it has to be one or the other.
  j) Released in June 2004.

     mix, Dave's vocals, along with the background vocals are clear.
  b) There's lots of classic "Dave-isms" during the show. Edward sounds
     inspired on "Women In Love". You can't help but laugh when after Eddie
     plays the instrumental intro to "Women In Love", Dave says, "This one
     goes out to all the lighting people!" As VH buffs know, the lighting
     people were the ones who pointed out the women in the audience that the
     band wanted to party aftershow with.
  c) A rare find if you can get your hands on it.
  d) Released in 2000.

Notes:

  b) Lineage: 3rd gen cass(?)>Aiwa CSD-ED37>PC>Goldwave .wav recorder>WAV>FLAC(level 5)
  c) Here and there you'll hear fluttering but it always dissipates quickly.
  d) Disc 2 Track 3 has a weird sound about 3 seconds into it.
  e) After "Unchained" going into "ATBL" the sound gets a little duller. ATBL
     was on a different tape so that's why.  Around 4:40 Disc 2 Track 8 you'll
     hear the sound get a little duller.  Nothing horrible but there's a
     difference. Other than that it's a great bright sound throughout. 
  f) A highly recommended Fair Warning show...it's got a stellar "Hear About
     It Later". The only downside is that there's someone blowing a horn
     throughout the whole thing.
  g) Released in May 2004.

Notes:

  a) "Dance The Night Away" on Side 2 isn't listed on the cover.
  b) Overall sound quality would rate about a B.  It's an audience recording,
     and the band sounds clear but there's a "spacious" arena-quality to it.
  c) Because the show was in LA, the boys were probably partying hard and it
     shows in a few songs; Dave doesn't sing the entire second verse of "So
     This Is Love".  In the same song, Eddie plays part of the second solo
     during the FIRST solo.  Also, Dave "makes up" lyrics in the second verse
     of "Unchained". (just like "Romeo Delight" in the US Festival show)
  d) Great montage artwork on cover. Shot of band members on front surrounded
     by flames and other graphics.
  e) Records are pressed on black or red vinyl, the red version being more
     rare.  They have white labels with some random black numbers or markings
     on them.  The matrix number is engraved near the center with an A/B/C/D
     after it indicating what side it is.
  f) An alternate pressing exists on black vinyl with slightly different cover
     art and non-generic labels for the records.  The front and back artwork
     looks the same at first glance, but closer examination reveals that the
     artwork is compressed so that more of the image(s) appear at the edges of
     the sleeve.  The "Van Halen" banner also looks more purple.  The labels
     on the records have a blue background, a portion of the artwork, and the
     track listing (also missing "Dance The Night Away" from side 2).  They
     also call the release "Sinners Home Ground".  This pressing is ETS 2527
     & 2528.

     show.  Hardly sounds like vinyl.
  e) The track listing on the vinyl bootleg, "Home Ground" does not correspond
     to the vinyl>CD transfer.
  f) The volume dips down a little bit in the beginning of "On Fire" but
     rebounds shortly.
  g) There are 3 or 4 cuts between songs, nothing major.  The audience
     cheering is cut out; no music is lost.

Notes:
  a) The front cover has a picture of Dave (circa 1976 demos). "Van Halen"
     in the top right hand corner with "Listen Up Eddie" approx in the
     middle and "Fair Warning Tour 1981" in the bottom right hand corner.
     All lettering on the front cover is in white.
  b) The back cover says, "Van Halen - Listen Up Eddie" on top in pink
     lettering. "L.A. Forum June 21st, 1981 Fair Warning Tour" also on
     top in white lettering. Below is a picture of Eddie with his arms
     around 2 girls (circa 1979). Song titles are below that in pink
     lettering with "KTS Kiss The Stone Archive Series The Ultimate In
     Quality!!!  1997/add  ACUM"
  c) The inside booklet shows David Lee Roth with the members of The Runaways.
     In the picture, left to right is, Sandy West, (unknown), Joan Jett,
     Lita Ford, David Lee Roth, and Vickie Blue.
  d) The disc is silver in color with "Sinners Swing" in black lettering
     arching the top of the disc and "KTS 706 AS The Ultimate In Quality"
     along the bottom.
  e) It's an audience recording. "audience Ex-" but could have been a very
     solid EX if it were run through an EQ. The sound is somewhat distant
     as a whole and no one instrument "overpowers" another.
  f) The complete show from this date also had solo's for Alex and Mike.
     "Ice Cream Man", "Unchained", and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love". These
     last two tracks were supposed to be included in this release as
     evidenced by this cover art, which was never used.

Notes:

     the 1981 tour.
  b) Artwork states that this show is from 6/19/81.  It is actually from the
     third night in Los Angeles.
  c) Complete mono audience recording that while featuring a nice loud
     audience, is actually pretty good.  The recording is clean but
     somewhat overdriven and light on the bass.
  d) Track 4 of Disc 1 contains a couple of minutes of Dave chatting.
  e) Packaging states a copyright of 2000 and sports what looks like a
     Japanese UPC label.

  b) Lineage: AUD>Master cass>???>"Full Moon, Fair Warning" CDRx>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>Soundforge Audacity speed correction +5%>WAV>CDR1>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>FLAC(level5)
  c) This is adapted from "Full Moon, Fair Warning".
  d) It has been speed corrected and rough track transitions have been
     cleaned up.
  e) The original recording inherently gets ever so slightly slower as it
     goes on.  It was not adjusted track by track, but a flat, across the
     board 5% increase in speed.  The last two songs still sound a tinge
     slow, but nothing major.
  f) There is a cut between "Everybody Wants Some" and "Ice Cream Man",
     cutting out the latter half of EWS and the first half of ICM.  There is
     also some kind of cut between "Romeo Delight" and EWS, but no music is
     cut there--EWS just starts abruptly with no cheering in between.
  g) There are an inordinate amount of firecrackers going off throughout the
     entire show.
  h) Released in February 2005.

                   Disc 1 Time - 48:27

Total Running Time - 83:20

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, VG-.
  b) The sound is unbalanced for most of the show, favoring the left channel.
     This gets corrected on Disc 2 Track 5 at the 3:39 mark. Overall you can
     hear a little tape hiss as well.
  c) Small clicks between Disc 1 Tracks 1&2, 3&4, 8&9, 9&10; Disc 2 Tracks 4&5.
  d) Cut between Disc 1 Tracks 11&12, Disc 1 Track 12 & Disc 2 Track 1.
  e) Disc 2 Track 7 cuts off abruptly.
  f) Fadeouts on Disc 1 Track 12, Disc 2 Tracks 5&6.
  g) Fade-in Disc 2 Track 1. 
  h) It doesn't seem any music is lost except for Disc 1 Track 12 which cuts
     off before the section in "Everybody Wants Some" where Dave works the
     crowd. Disc 2 Track 1 fades in and picks up right at the beginning of
     "Ice Cream Man" but omits Dave's customary spiel with the crowd before
     that. Disc 2 Track 7 cuts off abruptly with no fadeout.
  i) The "heartbeat" section of "Romeo Delight" seems to be a little more
     up-tempo and louder as compared to how they did it in other '81 shows.
     Ed does a little more "noodling" in this show than in other shows during
     the "Cathedral" section of the solo.
  j) Released in April 2004.

     Audacity minimal editing>WAV>FLAC(level 5)
  d) This is an alternate source of this show. This one doesn't have the
     encores, but it has a complete EWS and Ice Cream Man. If you put the two
     sources together (this one and "Mean Streets of Chicago") you get a
     complete show.
  e) The tape sounded decent, wasn't too genned. This source is more distant
     and quasi-reminiscent of "Home Ground" in terms of the spacious, distant
     sound. The other source is very upfront without a lot of ambience. The
     tape had a high-pitched hiss which is why Dolby C noise reduction was
     applied right on the deck. Speed correction was also applied right on
     the deck, a half step down as it ran too fast. All the highs are still
     there however, and if you turn it up loud enough you can still hear the
     high-pitched hiss a little bit.
  f) Editing was minimal; EWS was spliced together from both sides of the
     tape. Unfortunately, side 2 of the tape wasn't as good quality as side
     one of the tape, so there's a dropoff around the 0:33 mark of EWS where
     the splice is.
  g) Because Disc 2 would only have been about 16 minutes, some bonus
     material has been thrown in to fill it out.
  h) Track 4 is a radio interview from a Chicago radio station, 7/29/80.
     There were studio songs played but they were mostly cut on the tape, and
     what was left of that was cut out here.
  i) Amsterdam 1981, track 5, is hilarious. DLR and the boys walk around town
     asking strangers if they've heard of Van Halen. No one recognizes them
     but for one person at the end who goes, "Wait, you're David Lee Roth!"
     This broadcast also has a couple of the Oakland 6/13/81 tracks in there
     which were left in.
  j) Tracks 6 and 7 are stuff that aren't widely circulated. Track 6 is a
     decent generation of EVH playing a couple of songs with the Pretenders
     at UCLA on 2/14/82. Track 7 is quite genned and is Ed playing with Allan
     Holdsworth at The Roxy in Los Angeles on 4/23/82. Nevertheless, it's a
     nice thing to have for historical purposes.
  k) Released in March 2005.

  c) "Romeo Delight" has a small cut in the middle for tape flip.
  d) "Unchained" is cut and it is just the intro for the song, not a part of
     the song itself.
  e) Re-transfer from the same source tape spread on Sharing The Groove in
     2004.  This one is better sounding with no digital errors. Sound is very
     spacious.  Little tape hiss which leads one to believe this is a low-gen
     tape.  Encores are missing and likely not recorded.
  f) Re-transfer done in June 2005.
  g) Released in July 2012.

  c) Very solid, tight performance. Show moves along pretty fast as they
     don't do as much fooling around as in other shows. "Ice Cream Man" is
     among the shortest 1981 renditions. Dave's rap after "Hear About It
     Later" is also a little shorter. Not much else to say other than this is
     a nicely executed show that really doesn't have any hitches.
  d) Quality is pretty good for a 1981 recording. There's audience
     cheering but you'll hear the songs just fine without much interference.
     There is a minor cut at the beginning of "Everybody Wants Some" for a
     tape flip, and then a minor cut in crowd noise before the encores for a
     tape change. Other than that there aren't any analog issues to speak of.
  e) Released on late May 2005.

Notes:
  a) Audience Recording - Lineage Unknown/tracking/Adobe Audition 3.0 - FLAC

     Warning shows in existence to date.  The jam before they start playing
     "On Fire" is unique.
  c) The very end of "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" is cut off.
  d) Front artwork shows Edward and Dave on stage.  The VH logo, a logo for
     the venue, and the show city and date are present.
  e) The rear artwork contains a similar shot of Edward and Dave on stage.
     The set list is in white text on the left side.
  f) Released by Nashwolverine in 2012.

      Total Time - 39:00 (approx)

Notes:
  a) Cover shows close up of DLR laughing.  Back has a drawing of a hand
     plugging a plug into an outlet.
  b) There aren't any track listings, concert info, credits, or label
     to be seen.  The "81:86" shown on the cover isn't a running time, it is
     the years of the recordings.  '81 & '86
  c) A photocopied 1/2 sheet of paper insert shows information about the set.
     It lists the 1986 tracks as being from Hartford, but the band did not
     play Hartford on that tour.  The tracks are from New Haven CT.
  d) DLR mentions Greensboro a few times but you can't tell which
     Greensboro he's talking about.  Probably Greensboro North Carolina.
  e) Good sound quality on each side.

Notes:
  a) Audience shot show, filmed using a tripod from pretty far back in the
     auditorium.  Not much zooming is used.
  b) The video is 4:3 720x480 NTSC with an average bit rate of 8500Kbps and
     proper chapter points on a dual-layer DVD.
  c) The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1 channels encoded at 448Kbps.
  d) This is a 2012 upgrade to everything else out there.  While still not
     great quality, it's completely watchable and enjoyable.
  e) Something special to watch for.  During Jamie's Cryin', Dave disappears
     from view on the left side of the stage.  He is gone for some time and
     then out of nowhere you see him swing across the left side of the stage
     on a rope like Tarzan.
  f) Artwork shows Edward on the front, and Dave on the back with the track
     listing.  The track listing leaves off the two "Dave's Rap" tracks.
  g) Alternate artwork shows a couple of screen shots from the show, various
     logos for the venue and contents, a track listing with running times, and
     the "2012 Upgrade" text on the front.
  h) Released March 4, 2012.

  c) The recording is quite average. Nevertheless it is unique in a couple of
     ways: the band plays a cover of "Summertime Blues" the old Eddie Cochran
     number that was also covered by Blue Cheer, Hendrix and others. It's the
     only recorded version of the tune on the Fair Warning Tour. This is also
     the last document of the Fair Warning tour that has surfaced. This is
     also one of the smaller venues the band played on the tour, with a
     capacity of 7,000. 
  d) The last track is an interview done with Alex on KLAQ in El Paso the
     day of the show.
  e) Released in September 2011.

Notes:
  a) The source for this disc was an unknown generation cassette tape with
     Dolby noise reduction applied.
  b) The quality is VG- or about B-/C+.  The audio is muffled throughout,
     like the taper was hiding the recorder under a jacket or something.
  c) Track 14 (Secrets) was cut off on side 1 of the tape and then Track
     15 (Everybody Wants Some!!) picked up on side 2 of the tape.
  d) This was the tour rehearsal for friends before the band was to embark
     on the "Hide Your Sheep" tour.  Because of this, it's not a normal
     show as evidenced by the setlist and the way Dave talks to the audience.
  e) Released in June of 2004.

Total Show Time - 98:05

Notes:
  a) A very clear and good recording of the 3rd show (first weekend) of the
     1982 Diver Down tour.
  b) A big plus with the recording....this was a rare setlist structure
     because the setlist was changed shortly after this show and pretty much
     stayed the same for the rest of the tour.
  c) Dave tells Charlotte about his "Southern Hospitality" before the show,
     and talks about being "Sold Out On A Saturday Night".
  d) One fault in the recording is on Disc 2 "Bottom's Up" fades out after
     the chorus and then fades back into the start of "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout
     Love".
  e) Very nice professionally done artwork.
  f) Each CD is red with "Sold Out On A Saturday Night" printed in white.
  g) Each case is numbered, only 75 were made.
  h) If you can find this show, get it.  It will be a plus to any Van Halen
     collection.

Notes:

  c) Small clicks between Disc 1 Tracks 8&9, 10-13. Disc 2 Tracks 4&5, 6&7.
     There's a small "blip" Disc 1 Track 3 at the 0:04 mark.
  d) The tail end of Disc 1 Track 8 fades out, and the bass solo is
     completely omitted. Disc 2 Track 3 fades out and is cut.
  e) Disc 1 Track 14 (Somebody Get Me A Doctor / I'm So Glad) cuts as the
     band is about to start up SGMAD again.  Another cut is before the end of
     the track, which picks up with audience cheering. 
  f) Disc 2 Track 3 (Guitar Solo) is cut.
  g) Disc 2 Track 4 (Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love) has a cut in the aud cheering.
  h) Disc 2 Track 5 Bottoms Up! has a cut in the aud cheering.
  i) There's a small flaw between Disc 1 Tracks 11&12...about 5 seconds of
     Dave's talking at the end of Track 11 is repeated again at the beginning
     of Track 12.
  j) Eddie's guitar cuts in and out on songs like "Romeo Delight" and "Somebody
     Get Me A Doctor." They must have had technical difficulties that night.

                          Disc 1 Time - 74:20

Total Show Time - 114:53

Notes:
  a) A great audience recording of the "Hide Your Sheep" 1982 Diver Down tour
     from Seattle Washington.  Sound quality is comparable to the "Shouting
     Out Loud" show.  Disc 1 is an overall "B+ / A-" type of quality.  Disc 2
     is a solid "A".  It seems that Disc 2 could be from a different source
     than Disc 1  Both discs are definitely from the same show.
  b) Right from the start you can tell this is going to be a "High" energy
     show as the crowd is screaming and several M-80 fireworks are going off.
  c) Track 9 (Bass Solo) on Disc 1 is a cool one by Michael!  It starts out
     with a sort of trippy sound and then he goes in to snippets of "Women And
     Children First", "The Bonanza Theme" and various other things.
  d) The setlist is similar to most of the 1982 tour shows, with the exception
     of an impromptu tune Dave does before going into Ice Cream Man called
     "Washington".  Dave starts out strumming on the guitar and starts singing
     a tune about being in Washington State.  Dave then goes into "Classic"
     story telling mode where he tells the crowd about staying at one of the
     Hotels on the Seattle Waterfront (The Edgewater), which is built on
     pilings and hangs out over the water.  He then goes on to tell the crowd
     about partying with the band and fishing out his window but he was so
     trashed he didn’t realize his fishing line was 2 feet off the water.  A
     total classic Dave story at it’s best!
  e) Track 17 on Disc 1 (Ice Cream Man) is cut-off and fades out at the last
     couple of seconds of the song.
  f) The end of Disc 2 is sort of amusing also.  After Van Halen leaves the
     stage when the encore is over, the crowd is still cheering & waiting for
     more music, but when the house music comes on over the PA system, the
     crowd erupts into one loud "AHH.......", then the noise fades out.  The
     show is then finally over.
  g) The artwork appears to be professionally done with bright colors and easy
     to read text throughout.
  h) The artwork on the front cover is yellow with a large Washington State
     picture in the center, with a "Diver Down" red & white stripe color
     pattern.  The words Van Halen & Hung 'Em High In Seattle are in black.
  i) The inside of the front cover is blue with a picture of Dave & Eddie from
     the 1982 tour in the middle.  The words "Seattle Center Coliseum" &
     "September 2nd, 1982" are in red text.
  j) The back artwork contains a picture of the Seattle skyline in a long
     exposure shot with the Space Needle and the lights from the surrounding
     buildings in a cool sort of streaking pattern.  The back also includes the
     text "Limited Edition Of 300 Copies World Wide".
  k) Released in September 2002.

Notes:
  a) "Ice Cream Man" at the end of Disc 1 is repeated at the beginning of
     Disc 2.
  b) There is a cut during D.O.A.  Instead of leaving it as one track the
     song has been split into two tracks on Disc 2 at that cut.
  c) Dave mentions that it is the first time they've played the Cow Palace.
  d) Audio is a VG audience recording. The bass is a little light, but
     overall this is a quality show with a bonus of "D.O.A.," which was
     not played all that often on this tour.
  e) The source for this show is the original analog master cassette.
  f) Released in March 2004.

               Disc 1 Time - 71:36

Total Running Time - 120:07

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, lineage: Analog Master>CDR(?)>EAC(secure mode)>WAV>FLAC
  b) This is the second night of the 1982 San Francisco run. This one has a
     warm sound that the first night did not have.  Eddie's solo is tight and
     Dave spends more time talking to the crowd than the first night.
  c) This comes straight from the master and is undoubtedly the best possible
     version of this show you can get.  There are no speed/pitch problems,
     only some small cuts, probably when the taper was flipping tapes.
  d) Disc 1 Track 8 (Little Guitars) has a slight cut at the beginning.
  e) Disc 1 Track 14 (Everybody Wants Some!!) has a slight cut at the
     beginning.
  f) Disc 1 Track 17 (Ice Cream Man) the very beginning, fades out.
  g) Disc 2 Track 4 (Guitar Solo Pt. I) has a slight cut.
  h) Released in March 2004.

  a) The sound quality is Audience Ex-
     This was actually taped from the soundboard area by one of Bill Grahms
     security people. Has a *slight* echo hall sound but not nearly as bad as
     other VH recordings. Audience noise is at a bare minimum.
  b) Alternate versions of this title exist, in one version, the front cover
     is a photocopied B/W cover. Looks like a clip art program. With "Van
     Halen Live At The Cow Palace In San Francisco,Ca. 15/9/82" (cover
     incorrectly reads 15/9/84) and there is no back cover.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, Quality: C
  b) Lineage:
      AUD>unknown gen cass>Sony TC-WE635 tape deck>Sony RCD-W500C
      standalone burner>CDR(M)>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>Soundforge
      Audacity minimal editing>WAV>CDWave>FLAC(level 5)
  c) For completists only. Muddy recording with tape hiss.
  d) The recording is missing "Everybody Wants Some!!" and "Bottoms Up!",
     hence it's about 20 minutes shorter than the typical 1982 recording.
     Not sure if those songs were just not played, whether they weren't
     recorded.
  e) Side 2 of the tape (Disc 2 on CD) is muddier sounding than side one
     (Disc 1).
  f) Editing was very minimal, all that was done was getting rid of gaps.
  g) The taper is pretty obnoxious throughout and keeps screaming "Hang 'em
     High" prior to that song being played.
  h) During "Romeo Delight," someone close to the taper laughs loudly when
     Dave says "I forgot the fucking words!"
  i) Disc 1, Track 13 (Secrets) has the tail end cut off.
  j) Disc 2, Track 7 (Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love) cuts in.
  k) Disc 2, Track 8 (You Really Got Me) cuts in, and then "Happy Trails" is
     cut at the end.

Notes:
  a) Pro-shot recording that is taken from the in-house TV feed at the Capital
     Centre.
  b) Quality is pretty good, but in order to squeeze the whole show onto one
     disc, half of the hozitontal resolution has been discarded.
  c) Video specs: MPEG2, NTSC, 352x480, 29.97i, 4:3 - Average bit rate 2.3Mbps
  d) Audio specs: Stereo LPCM audio (48k/16b)
  e) Chaptered and Menued on a single-layer DVD.
  f) The very end of "You Really Got Me" is from a far more generated source.
     Picture is really washed out, and audio is much poorer.
  g) The Fast Foward Interview includes videos for "Unchained", "So This Is
     Love?" and "Pretty Woman".
  h) Cover art is a black and white shot of Eddie playing a double-necked
     guitar with a red/white diver down flag super-imposed.
  i) Inside art has a white background with a red stripe.  The set list is in
     black text.  There are three color photos of the band on stage.
  j) The disc is simple white with black text.
  k) This is a bonus disc distributed with stickered copies of "Montreal 1982".
  l) Released in January 2015.

  c) On the tape itself, the show is oddly out of order.  The taper's
     machine broke the night of the show, and he had to keep holding down the
     record button to record.  This explains why there are so many dropouts
     in the analog source; the guy had to put up a fight to tape it.  It is
     surmised that perhaps the guy accidentally hit auto reverse on the
     Walkman, or was fiddling with it and accidentally flipped the tape?
     After all, we don't have the rest of the bass solo, Hang 'em High,
     Cathedral, or the first half of Secrets, so he must have been playing
     with it all that time.  Finally the guy probably just gave up shortly
     after "Dance The Night Away" started, and hence there are only 55+
     minutes of this show available.
  d) Because the stuff was out of order on the tape, after recording it on
     the standalone, the CD was ripped and edited.
  e) The sound is alright though flat and bassy.  It also has a flatness to
     it.  But it is decent, clear enough with no hiss as it's a first gen.
  f) The original tape cut out after the bass solo, then had the second half
     of EWS and the first 15 seconds of DTNA.  Side two of the tape had the
     second half of Secrets and the first half of EWS.  The order was fixed
     and combined the EWS parts to give us what sounds like a mostly complete
     EWS.
  g) One cool thing about this tape is the music before the show, which so
     very few VH boots have.  It is possibly a Judas Priest song.
  h) Track 11 (Bass Solo) is cut.
  i) Track 12 (Secrets) cuts in.
  j) Track 14 (Dance The Night Away) is cut.
  k) Released in March 2005.

Notes:
  a) Recording sounds like a pro source.
  b) Tora! Tora! is actually Growth.
  c) The audience noise is mainly cut out.  Also, Dave's rap throughout songs
     are edited out.  They never mention the city they are playing in as most
     talking is edited out.  This might not be a Hapmton, Virginia recording.
  d) The date is wrong on the back of the disc.  Reads: Live in Hampton,
     Virginia November 18, 1982.  According to the VHE, VH played the Hamptons
     on 10/31/1982 and Reunion Arena, Dallas, TX on 11/18/1982.
     Comparisons with the Montreal 1982 concert prove that the audio on this
     disc is from the that show.

Notes:
  a) The source was recorded on cassette with a Sony TCD5M with Sennheiser
     MD441 mics.  It was then transferred to another cassette and then to
     CD.  It was missing parts including the end of "Romeo Delight", the end
     of "Little Guitars" and a small segment in the middle of the "Guitar
     Solo". Each of these bits were filled in by the mono video soundtrack
     from a BetaMax master to Super VHS to Digital-8 source.  Since the
     analog audio is in stereo and the video was in mono, there is a noticable
     sound difference when the analog audio was filled in with the video
     soundtrack.
  b) The sound quality of the analog audio source improves as the show runs,
     it starts out as VG+ and gets progressively better by the middle of the
     show. It is very clean with virtually no tape hiss (no hiss or noise
     reduction was used). The source was very tinny sounding with little bass,
     this was fixed during the remastering process and the resulting sound is
     much better.
  c) "Somebody Get Me a Doctor" includes "I'm So Glad".
  d) Artwork includes some nice action shots of the band on stage along with
     details on the source and track listing.  The under-tray artwork is a
     nice variation on the old "wings" VH logo.
  e) Released in April 2004.

Total Show Time - 1:51:34

Notes:
  a) "Somebody Get Me a Doctor" includes "I'm So Glad".
  b) There are two 20 second intros on the disc that cannot be skipped.  The
     first one talks about freely trading the discs and the second one is an
     animated Digital Reproductions logo.  The main menu on both discs is a
     static shot of EVH with the audio of "Intruder" as the bed.
  c) Disc 1 includes a RockLine interview from Feb 15, 1982 that is about
     37 minutes long.  It is hosted by Bob Coburn along with Alex Van Halen
     and David Lee Roth.  It's broken up into 12 segments and each segment has
     a different picture displayed on-screen in slide-show format.
  d) Disc 2 includes a RockLine interview from Aug 9, 1982 that is about
     37 minutes long.  It is hosted by Bob Coburn along with Michael Anthony,
     David Lee Roth and Alex Van Halen.  It's broken up into 11 segments and
     each segment has a different picture displayed on-screen in slide-show
     format.
  e) When accessed via a computer DVD-ROM drive, both discs contain artwork
     for the DVD, as well as artwork for the 2 CD audio version of this show.
     Disc 1 contains the audio for CD 1 and Disc 2 contains the audio for CD
     2.  The audio is stored in SHN format and includes MD5 files that allow
     you to verify the integrity of all the files.
  f) The video was sourced from a Digital-8 clone of a Super VHS copy of the
     original BetaMax master tape.  The video is pretty complete with some of
     the longer dead spaces missing during the original filming and some other
     small cuts, none of them during songs.  The picture is completely
     unobstructed as it was filmed from high up at the back of the venue on a
     tripod. The video is pretty stable throughout the show.  Due to the
     resolution of the camera and the technology of the time, the video
     quality is kind of low-res and a bit grainy at times.
  g) The soundtrack is in mono which was the only option on the camcorder that
     the filmer rented for the show.  However, there is a second soundtrack
     for the show taken from a 1st gen analog recording.  The sync of the
     analog audio to the analog video, while not perfect, is rarely off by
     more than a few hundredths of a second.
  h) The Digital-8 video was transfered to computer via firewire connection
     from a Sony TRV-340 camcorder. All video was mastered in Adobe Premier
     and all the audio was remastered using Adobe Audition. The video was
     encoded at the highest constant bit rate (8000kbps) using TMPGEnc with
     all settings at highest quality. The audio was encoded as 256kbps 2.0 
     Dolby Digital stereo.
  i) Released in April 2004.

Total Time - 83:06

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, very clear, but a little shrill at times.
  b) When compared to "Everybody Wants A Virgin" (EBWAV), the following
     differences were noted:
     1) It's the same source recording
     2) Levels are a bit higher, things are cleaned up, and there is slightly
        more audio
     3) Disc 1 EBWAV fades in and out.  Montreal 1982 does not, which results
        in a couple more seconds of audio.  Otherwise, pretty much the same.
     4) Disc 2:
        -there is maybe a second more of audio at the start on Montreal 1982.
        -the audio problem with Ice Cream Man on EBWAV is fixed
        -on EBWAV the guitar solo fades out and Bottoms Up fades in, on
         Montreal 1982 there is a hard cut between them, but no fades
        -Montreal 1982 has more outro music at the end
     5) It's better, but but not a significant improvement.
  c) Track 10, Disc 2 (Growth) is listed on the artwork as "Tora! Tora!".
  d) Cover art is a black & white shot of the band superimposed with a red
     and white diver down symbol.  The show info is in the upper right corner.
  e) The inside-back is a collection of various color shots of the band on
     stage on a white background with a red stripe.
  f) The rear cover has a reversed (white with red stripe) diver down motif
     along with a black & white promo shot of the band.  The set list is in
     black text along the left side.  There are 4 small individual color
     shots of the band members near the bottom.
  g) The under-tray artwork is a color promo shot of the band on top of a
     white background with a red stripe.
  h) The discs are red with a white stripe (Diver Down) along with text
     indicating the show name and disc number.
  i) The jewel case cover has a sticker indicating it is a limited edition
     along with a stampted number.  (supposedly only 50 [or 140] copies are
     stickered)
  j) This show was released with a couple of bonus items.
     a) "Charlotte 1982" a 2-disc audio set of the show from July 17, 1982.
     b) "Largo 1982" a DVD of the show from October 12, 1982.

Notes:
  a) Audience recording, Quality: B
  b) Lineage: Unknown gen.cassette.aud > SonyTCWE435 > PioneerPDR-4 > CDR >
      EAC > WAV > Trader'sLittleHelper > FLAC
  c) Taper did do a good job with this recording, all instruments are fairly
     clear.
  d) The beginning is missing.
  e) The audio is cut between each of the tracks. Some are hard cuts right
     into the next song, and others are faded out and back in.
  f) As "Intruder" (track 7) starts you can hear the taper say "I got
     about 5 minutes left on this tape, I got to turn it around" which is
     sorta near the 45 minute mark (one side of a 90 min tape) so maybe the
     beginning of the show wasn't recorded.
  g) Track 11 (You Really Got Me) includes "Happy Trails".
  h) Front artwork is a stage shot of Dave and Edward.  The Lion logo is at
     the top.  The show location and date is at the bottom.
  i) The back of the booklet has the set list in white text over an in-concert
     image of Alex and his drum set.
  j) The disc label is the same artwork as the front artwork.

                             Total Time - 76:24
Notes:
  a) Art work on front, back and middle appear to have been taken during
     the 1984 tour.
  b) Packaging is above average. (nice clean, glossy photos)
  c) The front cover shows Dave singing  (circa 1983) with the words
     "Van Halen I'm So Glad" in green lettering.
  d) The back cover shot has a picture of Dave doing a *kick* over Mikes
     head while he's playing the bass.
  e) Upon opening the jewel case there is a color picture of all 4 singing
     Happy Trails.
  f) The disc is wicked it's made to look like a actual vinyl record with
     the center 2/3 of the disc is green in color and the outer 1/3 is
     black.
  g) When you take out the cd you can see more pictures through the clear
     jewel case and it shows Dave on stage singing while doing the splits
     (not in the air but on the stage floor) with 2 smaller pics inserted
     of Ed/Mike (in one) and Ed/Al in the other.
  h) Sound quality is comparable to the Eyes Of The Night CD. Guitars are
     very clear- Drums are legible- Bass is hidden- Roth seems "lazy" at
     times, Mono soundboard source (not audience).
  i) Not the clearest boot, but one hell of a set!
  j) An additional pressing of this boot appears to have been made. Not all
     of the materials described above are present on this pressing. The set
     list and sound quality are the same, but the front cover is a copy of
     the original. It's a bit fuzzier. There is no middle artwork, and no
     artwork under the disc. The back artwork is also a good copy of the
     original. The disc itself is all black except for a silver "EL 026"
     marking.

Notes:

  b) Rear artwork shows Edward on stage along with the track listing and
     running times, the location of this show and the source for this
     recording.
  c) The source is an unknown generation cassette from an FM broadcast.  It
     starts off a bit rough, but it eventually settles in nicely.
  d) There are some oddities interspersed in between the songs from the
     concert.  Perhaps that's how the radio station decided to air it.

                          Disc 1 Time - 52:25

Total Time - 108:21

Notes:
  a) Lineage: FM>"Caught in the Act" vinyl>unknown turnable>Philips CDR880
              standalone burner>CDR(1)>EAC(secure/offset)>WAV>FLAC(level 5)
  b) Quality: B+
  c) Tracks 11-13 on Disc 2 are from Montevideo, Uruguay (FM source), on
     February 5, 1983.
  d) Disc 1, Track 10 (Bass Solo) is cut, and "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers"
     cuts in middle.
  e) Disc 2, Track 9 (You Really Got Me) has "Happy Trails" cut.
  f) This is a direct transfer from the "Caught in the Act" vinyl to a
     standalone CDR recorder. This is the same familiar FM source, with the
     same cuts. There are also various interviews sprinkled in on the record,
     not sure where all of them come from other than "79th and Sunset" which
     comes from Innerview with Jim Ladd, 1982 #24-13.
  g) The quality is very good. The only unfortunate thing is that there's
     noticeable crackling and distortion from the record itself on the first
     5 tracks. The noise abates beginning with Disc 1 track 6, and then on
     Disc 2 it's not present at all.
  h) Released in July 2006.

  c) Notes from ffoner:
      QUALITY: Flawed FM Broadcast. The sound of this show is somewhat unusual
      for an FM broadcast but does improve over the course of the tape. The
      first minutes of the tape feature some FM signal drift that turns the
      tape from stereo to mono. While part of this show does circulate on
      video, Roth mentions that the show is being broadcasted on the radio.
      There are also electrical grounding noises, and odd shifts in the
      recording character that slightly shift the recording quality from song
      to song. The taper, presumably, also went to pains to edit out the DJ's
      occasional interjections in Spanish, but was not totally successful
      because snippets still remain. Despite these imperfections, this is
      still an outstanding recording.
      THE SHOW: This recording starts abruptly at the midpoint of "Romeo
      Delight." It sounds like the person in Uruguay who recorded this show
      may have turned on his stereo, heard the broadcast, grabbed a tape, and
      started recording. Thank goodness he or she did, because this tape
      captures one of the most interesting and satisfying post-club days
      performance. The band runs through a diverse and unusual setlist that
      includes deep LP cuts like "Little Dreamer" and "Dancing in the
      Streets." Overall, the band sounds like they are having a blast playing
      from of this stadium size crowd.
      The show is probably most memorable for Roth's "Gringo Espanol," which
      he frequently uses to talk to the audience. Among other comments Roth
      tells the audience that Uruguay is "Numero Uno en Futbol." Yet Roth does
      not let his showmanship get in the way of his singing. He puts a great
      effort into entertaining the crowd with strong and accurate vocals. In
      particular, he leads the band though a presumably quickly rehearsed
      acoustic song, sung in Spanish, called by Van Halen audio aficionados
      the "Ode to Montevideo."
      Roth, and the rest of the band, may have been inspired because they
      decided to play setlists that in many ways resembled the band's cover
      tune heavy sets from the early days. As with the other South American
      shows, the band alters their standard Diver Down set by adding an
      energetic cover of "Summertime Blues," done in the Who "Live at Leeds"
      style. And for one of the few times ever captured on tape, the band
      works up a mean cover of "Heartbreak Hotel." This great rendition begins
      with Roth's vocals taking the lead before turning the spotlight over to
      Edward, who fires off an intense solo. The tape concludes with Ain't
      Talkin' 'Bout Love," which if it was indeed the last song of the night,
      it would represent one of the rare shows that did not include "You
      Really Got Me." More than likely, the customary set closer was performed
      that night.
      All in all, the sound quality, strong performance, and diverse setlist
      makes this tape one of the best shows from the Roth era, and a must for
      every collection.
  d) Notes from Lou:
      Quality is superior to "South American Assault," and unlike that title,
      includes most of "(Oh) Pretty Woman" and the complete guitar solo. This
      production also includes the interview from the day before the show.
      Interview is an unknown gen tape transfer of an FM broadcast. The
      interview is conducted in Spanish with English translation for the band
      members. Dave expresses his eagerness to play in South America. Among
      other things, Dave explains why the band was not interested in putting
      out a live album. The interview is a typical Dave-dominated interview,
      very funny and enjoyable. The band is rowdy and goofing off as usual.
      The interview was previously in low circulation.
      Show is 2nd gen tape transfer of what is most likely an FM broadcast.
      Absolutely no equalization, normalization, remastering, speed correction
      or anything of that sort was done. All of the anomalies present on the
      tape such as fluctuations in sound quality and pitch were left as is. No
      fadeins or fadeouts were added; what you hear is what was on the tape. The
      only editing done was elimination of gaps, splicing together "Everybody
      Wants Some!!" and indexing tracks.
      Van Halen does a setlist quite different from the typical 1982 North
      American setlist. This is the first recording where "Dancing In The
      Street" appears, and the first time "So This Is Love?" appears since the
      Fair Warning tour. "Little Dreamer," prior to the 1983 South American
      run, had not been played since 1978. "Summertime Blues" is perhaps their
      hottest rendition. "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" from this show is one of
      their longest recorded jams. Finally, the guitar solo contains a preview
      of "Hot For Teacher."
      Dave has the crowd in the palm of his hand the entire show. His Spanish
      isn't exactly textbook, but the crowd eats it up, particularly on the
      purposefully silly "Ode to Montevideo" where the crowd can be heard
      singing the tune in unison even after Dave has finished. Despite its
      simplicity, the song is pure Dave, and only something Dave could pull
      off with charm and flair.
      The energy level is as high as any Van Halen show recorded. For example
      "Dance The Night Away," "SGMAD" and "Summertime Blues" all segue into
      one another. The band knows that the South American tour is a special
      occasion, almost as if they knew they would never play there again. This
      is Van Halen at its best. Hopefully this production will do the show
      greater justice than its predecessors.
  e) The FM interview is from Montevideo, Uruguay on February 4, 1983.
  f) Disc 1, track 2 (Romeo Delight) cuts in.
  g) Disc 1, track 6 (Runnin' With The Devil) has a small cut in the beginning.
  h) Disc 1, track 14 (So This Is Love?) has a fadeout, which was on the tape.
  i) Disc 2, track 11 [(Oh) Pretty Woman] is cut in the middle.
  j) Fantastic, high resolution artwork is an 8 page inside booklet,
     undertray and back cover. (If you think the picture of "Dave" on the
     back doesn't look quite right, you are correct. It is a photo of one
     of the little people that Dave used to employ.)
  k) Released in July 2005.

Total Show Time - 113:23

Notes:
  a) Disc One and the first five tracks of Disc Two are from the South
     American show done in Montevideo, Uruguay on 2/5/83.
  b) The front cover has a picture of Dave and Eddie on it. Eddie has his
     Les Paul and is leaning against Dave who is putting his hands behind
     his head. Dave doesn't have a shirt on and he had two bandannas around
     his neck.
  c) The Back cover has the tracks listed on the left in white lettering.
     There is a picture of Dave standing in front of a crowd raising his
     hand. In the upper right hand corner is a big red capital M, with the
     words Metal Maniacs underneath it.
  d) There are no pictures on the inside covers. Both discs are black with
     silver lettering. Disc One has MM009 in silver lettering at the top and
     Disc Two has MM010. Each disc has Compact Disc Digital Audio at the
     bottom.
  e) The Montevideo recording fades out in a couple of spots throughout
     the recording. The first track, Romeo Delight, is a little rough and
     then it smoothes out.
  f) Dave does a lot of rapping with the audience in this show. It is all
     in Spanish which the crowd LOVES. In Unchained he has a long couple
     of sentences with the crowd. Alex's has a small drum solo right at
     the end of Unchained in which the crowd really gets into.
  g) Mikey sings a line or two in Runnin' with the Devil for Dave. The
     recording screws up in the beginning of RWTD but smoothes out.
  h) Jamie's Cryin' starts off in a mono sound and then goes into stereo.
     It fluctuates in and out periodically throughout the song.
  i) Little Guitars sounds great and is perfect almost to the cover!
  j) Mikey's solo has a bunch of psychedelic sound in the beginning.  It is
     a fairly long solo and he uses all of his effects and pedals in this
     one. His solo provides a smooth transition into Where Have All The Good
     Times Gone.
  k) Eddie's intro and guitar in Dancin' In The Streets are flawless!
  l) Dave's vocals in Little Dreamer and So This Is Love sound fabulous.
  m) Eddie plays Cathedral after So This Is Love. The end of Cathedral is
     a nice transition into Secrets.
  n) "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" includes "I'm So Glad".
  o) The song Summertime Blues has a nice bluesy solo from Eddie at the end.
     This is the same Summertime Blues that is on Disc III of The Unreleased.
     However The Unreleased recording doesn't have the bluesy solo on it. The
     Heartbreak Hotel recording is identical to that on Disc III of The
     Unreleased also.
  p) Before the track ends on Summertime Blues, Dave brings out his acoustic
     for the crowd. He strums a few chords on the acoustic and begins to sing,
     "Oh Montevideo, que bueno" to the crowd. He also includes phrases like,
     "Montevideo es numero uno!" and, "Montevideo es numero uno en futbol!"
     He sings this basic song for a few minutes and once he ends the whole
     crowd continues the chorus themselves.  Dave then jumps right into Ice
     Cream Man.
  q) The particular recording of Intruder on this show is one of the best
     live versions that has ever been have heard. The band appear to just
     about to go into Pretty Woman when it cuts out and Eddie's solo starts.
     He has a couple of long riffs of the Mean Street intro. (with some wicked
     licks thrown in) in the beginning of his solo.
  r) Eddie plays a little bit of Cathedral in the song Ain't Talking Bout
     Love. Dave also has a long Spanish rap with the crowd during this song.
  s) Tracks 6-9 on Disc 2 are identical to those on California Calling,
     Listen to This Jimmy. Tracks 8 & 9 have the part where Dave calls to
     Alex and they all sing the acappella "Happy Trails" and then finish the
     rest of "You Really Got Me".
  t) The set is fairly identical to California Calling, however this recording
     has a few rare songs like Summertime Blues and Heartbreak Hotel on it.
     These are the same recordings that are on Disc III of The Unreleased
     (Tracks 6 and 7). There are several spots where the recording fades in
     and out but overall it is a great set. Dave's lyrics/voice sound great
     and Ed's chops are on 100%. The band is well tuned on this tour and this
     is a great set with a lot of Eddie's "Classic Solos/Riffs". This show is
     a must have for Dave Fanatics and for the collector!

Total Time - 90 Minutes (approx)

Notes:
  a) Title taken from the cover, which has a painted picture of Dave's
     face.
  b) Quality: It's from the soundboard, but it's lacking at both the top
     and bottom end.  You can hear Mike's bass, but it has no depth.
     Dave screams a bit, but generally gives a good performance.  Says
     it's stereo on the record, but there doesn't seem to be any separation
     at all.

     who's ever had somebody you were in love with".
  f) Tracks 6 - 8 of Disc 2 is Dave tuning up for "Ice Cream Man".

     which disc is which.
  i) The sound quality is great.  We've all heard this show before, but to
     hear it as the audience heard it is really special.  This is a great

Notes:
  a) The case is cardboard (like the one for RH:RN), black, with a pic of
     a stage shot of Ed, Dave, & Mike from the US Festival. At the top is
     the title. In the middle is the aforementioned pic. Under the title
     and on the sides (of the front) is the old VH logo with the wings
     extended all the way out to each end.  At the bottom it reads:
     ORIGINAL SOUNDBOARD RECORDING.
  b) The back has a stage shot of the band from 84 with the track list
     at the top.
  c) The inside is awesome with pics on the inside and outside (Dave and
     Ed (US Festival shots) and Mike, Dave, and Ed (84 shot) respectively.
     Printed inside is the text:
     Produced by KENNY BRIGHTSTAR
     Mixed by JOHN GREGORY at Digitech Studios, Pasadena, CA.
  d) The CD's also look awesome. Both CD's have the title on top and at
     the bottom it reads: "US FESTIVAL '83."  Disc one is has the
     characteristic EVH guitar red & white striped pattern. Disc two is
     the same pattern but it's black and white. Both discs say "1997 The
     copyright in this sound recording owned by Aurola Musikk Produksjon A/S.
     Inside the holes that hold the CDs in the packaging you can see a tiny
     VH logo for disc 1, and disc 2's hole contains the initials "US".
  e) The audio for this 2 disc set is most likely from a video source as
     evidenced by several minor edits, and by the inclusion of an edited
     version of "You Really Got Me" at the end of the show. However, this is
     one of the best sounding Dave era cd's.
  f) This 2 disc set was limited to 300 copies, worldwide! There will be
     no "second runs or reissues".
  g) "Everybody Wants Some" is erroneously written as Track 3 with the Drum
     Solo.
  h) At the end of the last track on disc two, the following is spoken by
     Bill Graham:
     "You know, I wanted to bring my mother down here to see Van Halen. But
     she was afraid that the heavy metal people are too rowdy, I mean, come
     on, right? She should have been here today, with the sun and the water."

Notes:
  a) The case is a standard 2 CD jewel case, with a pic of Mike, Eddie and Dave
     in what looks to be a shower room?  At the top are the words "Digital
     Soundboard Recording", about in the middle are the words "VAN HALEN"
     in bright red outlined in black. At the bottom is "US Festival '83",
     white on top, red on bottom and outlined in blue.
  b) The back has a stage shot Eddie, the tracklist in the middle, and to the
     right, "Location: US Festival California 1983" and "Pure
     Soundboard Recordings", with the CD logo underneath.
  c) The CD's are very plain. Pink in color, CD 1 labeled "RC003", and
     CD 2 labeled "RC004".
  d) The audio for this 2 disc set is most likely from a video source as
     evidenced by several minor edits, and by the inclusion of an edited version
     of "You Really Got Me" at the end of the show. However, this is one of
     the best sounding Dave era cd's.
  e) This 2 disc set appears to be a "boot" of the "California
     Calling" set.
  f) At the end of the last track on disc two, the following is spoken by
     an unknown person (male):
"You know, I wanted to bring my mother down here to see Van Halen. But she was afraid that the heavy metal people are too rowdy, I mean, come on, right? She should have been here today, with the sun and the water."

It is very clean except for the following: 1) There are two minor "pops" in Track 1 of Disc 1. 2) There is an edit at the beginning of "You Really Got Me" where the VHS source runs out. c) "You Really Got Me" from the "US Festival: Heavy Metal Day" was spliced in to complete the show. It is a almost flawless splice, except the crowd gets louder. d) Front artwork is on a black background and has a Van Halen "Old No. 7" logo above three in-concert shots of Dave and Edward. e) The back artwork is also on a black background and contains the track listing, location and a Dave and Edward shot. f) Released in 2004.

You can hear Mike's bass, but it has no depth. Dave screams a bit, but generally gives a good performance. Says it's stereo on the record, but there doesn't seem to be any separation at all. c) Recorded for "Radio Independencia", if Dave's rap (en Espanol!) at the beginning of "So This Is Love" is understood correctly. d) States it was recorded "in USA 1986/1983" which is obviously wrong.

It's an animated menu with various video clips from within the project running inside the clapboard while the studio track, "Panama", plays in the background. c) The video itself has no audio, so live concert audio has been laid in under the video.

There is a cut in the bass solo, all of "(Oh) Pretty Woman" and "Panama," small cuts in "Everybody Wants Some!!" and a small cut between the end of "Jamie's Cryin'" and the beginning of "I'll Wait." There are also periodic dropouts in songs. Editing was minimal and was only for gap removal, and splicing "Everybody Wants Some!!" from the end of side 1 of the tape to the beginning of side 2. d) This show does have some distinguishing features. First, it's a January 1984 show (recordings from this period are rare). Next, the big one. Dave screws up "Little Guitars" almost beyond repair. At the end of the refrain following the first verse, he sings it as if it were the refrain following the second verse. For about 30 seconds the band mucks their way through the song; however the first time you hear it, it sounds like an eternity. Eddie then seems to not yet be comfortable with the keyboards; there are noticeable flubs on "I'll Wait." The keyboard solo is a little more drawn out than usual, and it doesn't sound like Ed really had his ideas altogether. Compared to the keyboard solos from March 1984 on, the solo sounds disorganized and a little sloppy. "Everybody Wants Some!!" has a weird feedback around 3:50 in the middle of the song, to which Dave jokes, "Looks like the sound crew's on heavy narcotics tonight!" The song is also shorter than later renditions which venture into the 15 minute range. Dave introduces "Girl Gone Bad" as "Girls Gone Bad." The guitar solo, as with all guitar solos prior to Chicago 3/13/84, does not have the Eric Clapton blues jam, so it's straightforward, compact Eddie. Finally, in ATBL, you can hear traces of the "Good Enough" riff. Not nearly as much as New Haven 3/24/84, but there are traces. Also at the end of ATBL, look for a tease of "Sunshine of Your Love." e) If not for the cuts, this would be a show suitable for most, just because it has features, good and bad, that you won't find in other 1984 shows. Given that the 1984 tour was for the most part a cookie cutter setlist, anything the least bit out of the ordinary separates a 1984 show from the rest of its brethren. f) Released in May 2005.

Quality: B b) Linegae: Unknown gen.cassette.aud > SonyTCWE435 > PioneerPDR-4 > CDR > EAC > WAV > Trader'sLittleHelper > FLAC c) Clear recording in front of an enthusiastic crowd in Buffalo. A bit distant, however. A good overall show from fairly early in the tour. d) This is a }{eywood remaster of the previously available show. The show needed judicious EQing and a bit of NR, to sound the best it can. The low end was there, but all it was was a constant rumble from the cassette noise, so most of the bottom was taken in order to reduce the annoying rumble that did nothing but obscure the music. Likewise with the high end above 10k, which was nothing but hiss without any music content. Obviously the mics didn't have the fidelity of the tape itself, and subsequent generations only enhanced these flaws. The resulting tape is pretty midrangey in fidelity, but much more discernable than the original, especially since the recording was fairly distant and quite echoey. e) There is a bit of "Everybody Wants Some" that is patched in from a really muffled tape, (possibly more generations). An attempt was made to pick up the highs, to little avail. Also an attempt was made to balance the channels a bit better, but they fluctuated a lot, so don't expect miracles. f) Released in June 2013.

A few wrinkles near the beginning of side 1, and the pad under the tape had fallen out. Some "surgery" had to be done in order to get this transfer. Not a bad recording considering the equipment. Slightly distorted, but reasonably clear, and all the frequencies were there. A little EQ to clear up the fidelity loss from the aging of less than top quality cassettes and some processing to make it seem a bit more stereo and here you have it. Since the tape was in mono anyway, and since the right channel was less than half the volume of the left (introducing more noise) the right channel was eliminated and the left was substituted before the stereo spatialization step. g) The tape change while recording was a little slow, so part of "Pretty Woman" was missed. h) These are just the raw audio files. The taper has left it up to the individual on whether to burn this to a Video DVD, a DVD-Audio disc, convert it to 16bit/44.1KHz (for CD burning) or just leave the files as-is. i) Released in August 2013.

It was recorded on a medium volume level and left alone. It came out a little on the soft side volume-wise. d) The taper either turned the tape off between the encores or whoever dubbed the tape cut that out. You can hear the tape going off and on. e) Glitch at the end of Disc 1 Track 8 and beginning of Disc 2 Track 10 is part of the source tape. f) The volume dips down a little bit in the middle of "Runnin' With The Devil" and stays that way until the middle of "Little Guitars" when it rebounds again. This is how the source tape is. g) It is divided it up the way it is because this came on two cassettes-- one full cassette and one side of another. The first side of the first cassette ended after "I'll Wait" and then picks up on the second side with the keyboard solo. The end of the second side ends with "Panama" cut off and then the third cassettes re-starts with "Panama". This track was spliced back together to form the whole song. h) One of the best features of this show is the taper's comments. The taper sounds like he's 16 or 17. His best comments are during the bass solo and the guitar solo. i) Eddie screws up the beginning of "Girl Gone Bad" and really messes up "Jump". You can hear part of "Right Now" and "Mine All Mine" in the keyboard solo. He also screws around with "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love". If that riff sounds familiar, it should--it's the riff of the middle part of "Good Enough" from the "5150" album. j) Released in May 2004.

It's about a B+. The sound overall is well balanced, and all instruments come out fairly clear in the mix. As in most audience recordings, this recording is mostly mid-range and a little adjustment on your stereo is needed to bring out the bass. b) There are fadeouts on the ends of a few songs before they are finished such as "Everybody Wants Some". "Happy Trails" is edited out of the middle of "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love". Dave's sword dance routine is also deleted. c) The show is a typical 1984 era show, no real surprises in the songs played although the band is in very good form and Dave in particular delivers a great performance and keeps his raps compact and short (for Dave anyway). The title of this set comes from a quote that Dave makes just before "1984" is played. d) The albums came in a blank white sleeve with a photocopied insert showing Dave in his huge cowboy hat and a partial track listing and japanese lettering on the bottom. The insert was either glued to the front or slipped in with the albums. "Fan Club of Taiwan promo use only".

It is vastly superior to the distant source with the very loud audience that has circulated widely since the mid-1980s. c) The taper recalled that on the night of the show one of his biggest worries was trying to keep his girlfriend quiet while he taped. During Alex's drum solo, you can hear where he failed to do so. d) Overall, this is a very enjoyable show to listen to. It is not going to make anyone forget Indy 7/6/84 or any of the San Francisco 84 recordings, but it is easy on the ears. A solid "VG+" which is well worth adding to your collection. Many thanks to R. O. for putting this set together. e) Alternate front artwork shows the 1984 stage with the show venue, date and band name in orange at the top.

Scorin' at the Forum -------------------- Format : 2 DVD's (Homemade DVDR) Label : Digital Reproductions DR 41984 Source : The Forum - Montreal, Quebec, Canada - April 19, 1984 Disc 1 Disc 2 1) Intro 0:48 1) 1984 1:12 2) Unchained 3:31 2) Jump 4:23 3) Hot For Teacher 4:01 3) Guitar Solo 14:19 4) Drum Solo 2:41 4) (Oh) Pretty Woman 3:09 5) On Fire 3:05 5) Panama 6:54 6) Runnin' With The Devil 6:29 6) You Really Got Me 7:38 7) Little Guitars 4:19 7) Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love 6:16 8) Cathedral 2:10 9) House Of Pain 4:00 Disc 2 Time - 43:50 10) Bass Solo 4:18 11) Jamie's Cryin' 3:27 12) I'll Wait 5:02 13) Keyboard Solo 1:51 14) Everybody Wants Some 8:50 15) Girl Gone Bad 4:56 Disc 1 Time - 59:27 Total Show Time - 104:17 Notes: a) Audience (1st gen video). Video quality VG+. Audio quality VG / VG+. b) Taken from a 1st gen video source of a BetaMax Master->SVHS->Digital8 lineage. This is a phenomenal audience film from the 1984, especially so considering how little footage there is of that tour. The camera work is much better than on the 1982 film from the same location. The equiment is better and the zoom is much tighter than on that recording. The shot is very steady for the majority of the show and follows the band members around very well. It's amazing to see the full panoramic shots of the stage and how elaborate that set was. c) While the video is fantastic, the audio recording isn't the greatest, but it is the best it is going to get. The audio is mainly lacking in high end due to the camcorder equipment of that time. There is also some wicked bass distortion that crops up during "Everybody Wants Some". The show is presented complete with the only edits being during long breaks between songs towards the end of the show. You can hear the band and the crowd is relatively low in the mix with no distracting participants near the filmer. Overall this mono recording just lacks the fidelity to rate it any higher. The show itself is a great performance in front of a very, very enthusiastic crowd. d) Special features include approximately 114 minutes worth of bonus material. There are three different interviews presented in slide show fashion. On the first DVD there is the "In the Studio" 15th Anniversary special on the making of the 1984 album featuring Alex, Eddie and Michael. On the second dvd there are a pair of radio interviews. The first is a Rockline special from February 20, 1984 with David, Alex and Michael that's complete with an in studio stripper! The second radio interview is from the BBC Rock Hour series from February 5, 1984 featuring David Lee Roth in fine form. The audio companion to the DVD video release and can also be found on the dvd disc two in lossless SHN format. The artwork for the DVD and the CD versions are included on disc. All the artwork and menu's feature previously unreleased photos from the 1984 tour taken by the CBG. Lastly, the md5 checksums for the audio and video files are included on disc to facilitate accurate copying and trading. e) Production specifics. The video was transfered from digital 8 tape via a Sony TRV-340 over firewire into a computer using Adobe Premier Pro. Video was then encoded with TMPGEnc at 8000kbps CBR with all settings to highest quality. Audio was digitally remastered in Adobe Audition and encoded as Dolby Digital 2.0 at 448kbps. The dvd was then authored using Sonic Scenarist. f) Released in August 2004.

Unlike the "Van Halen Assaults Quebec" bootleg, this is the complete show. d) There was no equalization, normalization, etc.... It was recorded on a medium volume level and left alone. e) The volume dips down for "Ice Cream Man" but eventually rebounds. f) The show came on two cassettes--one full cassette and one side of another. The first side of the first cassette ended after "I'll Wait" and then picks up on the second side with the keyboard solo. It was left exactly the way it sounds on the tape. The end of the second side ends with "(Oh) Pretty Woman" cut off and then the third cassettes re-starts with that song. "(Oh) Pretty Woman" was spliced back together for this transfer. g) "Everybody Wants Some!!" is different from the typical 1984 show. It's much more of an instrumental than it is Dave taking a break to rap with the crowd. h) Released in May 2004.

Under this it has a yellow background with "Van Halen Assaults Quebec" in red writing. There is the VH (old style) logo superimposed under the picture on the front. b) The back cover has a color picture of Dave, Ed and Mike (shot from behind) looking out into the audience. In small red letters at the top it states: "Live at Quebec City Coliseum Quebec, Canada 4-21-1984 Except (*) Live In Nuremberg, Germany 9-2-1984" The Nuremberg tracks are actually from Karlsruhe, Germany 9-1-1984. c) Sound Quality on the Quebec concert would rate an audience A-/B++ Not bad at all with the exception of a booming bass which can be compensated for by adjusting your controls. All instruments and vocals are clear but there is a *slight* tape hiss but none of this detracts from the performance or listening pleasure. d) Sound quality on the Karlsruhe, Germany show would rate an audience A+ Sound is very well balanced as is vocals and the audience noise level is VERY minimal. e) The big PLUS for this set is that it features Daves last show with Van Halen in FANTASTIC sound quality!!!

For most of the song, everything's going normally, Dave makes the routine 1984 EWS jokes, but when it's time to come back in to finish the song, the guitar craps out on Eddie around the 13:10 mark. Dave says, "In show biz, this is what we call getting...getting caught with your pants down here...I've always wanted to do this." Dave apparently does something wild in front of the crowd as we hear a loud pop from the crowd, and Alex keeps banging the drums (eventually joined by Mike on bass) until they fix the guitar problem. The band stalls for about a total of 3 minutes. Finally the guitar comes back in and Dave goes, "I heard you missed us, we're back!" d) Some notable points for this show/recording: this one has a really explosive start with a solid performance of "Unchained." Ed screws up 2:53-2:56 of "Hot For Teacher" in the scale... we really hear the throbbing bass keyboard notes in "I'll Wait" on this recording above most other recordings....there is a tape flip between "Jamie's Cryin'" and "I'll Wait." Ed screws up 2:01-2:05 of EWS..."Jump" is near flawless..." beginning of (Oh) Pretty Woman sounds a little strange for a couple of seconds...tape change in the middle of the guitar solo...there's a longer jam than normal prior to "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" which lasts about 1:37. e) The person who taped this is the same person who taped the following VH shows: Fresno 9/5/82, US Fest 5/29/83, Los Angeles 5/14/84. f) Released in May 2005.

The label artwork is simple and light brown in color. "Van Halen," the disc number and label name are printing in black. The front cover has Dave and Ed in a concert shot. The back has a common 1984 era picture of the band backstage and the track listing. b) A good audience recording with little audience noise. The guitar and vocals are clear and come over well. But the bass and drums are a little weaker and less prominent. But this is not a problem and gets better as the show continues. c) At the end of "Runnin' With The Devil", (Disc 1, Track 4), Dave mentions that it's Mothers Day and wishes a happy holiday to "Each and every one of your mamas." d) Dave slightly messes up the lyrics to "Little Guitars". e) The track listing on the rear artwork has several misspellings and mistakes. Some of them are: Disc 1, Track 2 states, "(incl. Alex Van Halen deums solo)" Note the spelling of "drums" Disc 1, Track 6 is listed incorrectly as Drop Dead Legs Disc 1, Track 9 states, "(incl David Lee Roth on chats)" "on chats"? f) Disc 1, Track 8 has Dave's Tai Chi dance. g) Disc 2, Track 8 includes Growth. h) Overall this is a slightly above average audience recording. At least a A-/B+ compared to other 1984 recordings.

Disc 3 and Disc 4 are from May 21, 1984. b) This is an audience recording from more recently discovered analog masters. The show is VG/VG+. The recordings themselves sound decent, mainly lacking fidelity and dynamic range due to the muffling effect. A lot of that is due to the recording equipment available at the time. As each show runs the sound gets clearer and more detailed. The audience around the taper is mostly non-existent, which is nice. c) There are a few short 1 second cuts in the recording (during guitar solo's) for tape flips. Other than that these shows are complete from end to end. d) This 4 disc set is meant to be stored in a quad CD case, thus the artwork is set up for this. e) The front artwork shows a sunset scene with some mountains in the background with the VH stripes superimposed. f) The rear artwork contains the track listing with running times for all four discs plus venue and date information superimposed over the top of a great "in your face" pic of Edward. g) Released in December 2002.

You can see Eddie in the lower right side and part of Mike standing behind Dave (might ne from the Panama video). "VAN HALEN" is in large orange letters along the bottom right and "Diamond Dave Goes Home Again" in green letters along the top. This is the only place throughout the packaging where the word "again" appears. "Diamond Dave Goes Home" might be considered the proper title for this disc. b) The back of the jewel case is a promo shot from 1984 (Alex in suit and tie, Dave in black shirt with yellow pin stripes, Ed in dice shirt and blue jeans with leather patches, and Mike in white shirt and red pants). In blue letters, the songs are listed in the lower left and "Arena Discs 001" appears in the lower right. Along the top it says "Live in Indianapolis July 4, 1984", but the correct date is July 6th. c) The inside shows a closeup of Eddie playing guitar with "VAN HALEN" in large orange letters in the upper left and "Eddie's 4th Of July Fireworks" in light-green letters along the bottom edge of the photo. This is the picture from the Hot For Teacher single. d) This CD is a CD-R copy. The paper label on the disc shows the four in a photo from Diver Down (Mike with suspenders, Alex in a striped shirt, Dave with arms crossed and bullet belt and Eddie in a checkerboard shirt). On the left is "Arena Discs 001" in green letters and on the right "Diamond Dave Goes Home" in orange letters. e) Despite being an audience recording, this disc has better sound than the San Diego, the Quebec and the Nuremberg shows on CD. It does have alot of audience cheering and at times, Eddie's guitar is distant in clarity. f) Dave raps with the audience at the end of Track 4. He mentions that he was born in Indiana. He also tells the audience to cuss with him. "Don't that make you feel better?" Dave continues his lewd talk during Little Guitars. g) Track 10, "Listen To This Jimmy" is Eddie's guitar solo h) This disc is the best sound quality recording of all the 1984 tour bootleg discs, currently available. The packaging looks like computer color printouts. Recommended for VH-Dave fans. If you can find it, get it.

He mentions that he was born in Indiana. He also tells the audience to cuss with him. "Don't that make you feel better?" Dave continues his lewd talk during "Little Guitars". "Everybody Wants Some" includes several minutes Dave's rapping with Al backing with drums here and there. Dave tells *hilarious* story about waitress he met before show! g) At the end of "Girl Gone Bad" Ed Plays little snippet of "Top Of The World". Eddie's guitar solo is fairly long, including stuff he didn't do on other tours. Some smokin' blues here! h) This show is one of the best sound quality recordings of all the 1984 tour bootleg discs, currently available (late 2000). Band's performance is also good. The packaging looks like computer color printouts. Highly recommended for VH-Dave fans.

The artwork insert and tray insert are printed in full color. d) An audience recording, probably from the original tape as there is virtually no hiss and the sound is pretty clean. e) On the negative side, since this was an outdoor show and the taper probably was a good distance away from the stage, the sound has a lot of dry, outdoor "ambiance" and there is a lot of background chatter throughout the show which is really distracting as the people talking nearby is as loud as the concert. In all fairness, as the show goes on, it becomes less annoying. Overall sound a solid "B". f) The show itself was a pretty good outdoor show from the last couple months of the 1984 tour although the band cut a few songs (Girl Gone Bad, Cathedral, Jamie's Cryin') during this leg of the tour as they were playing as support to AC/DC and had a shorter time slot. g) Since this is one disc, the show is edited to fit 74 minutes worth of space and the biggest loss is "Everybody Wants Some" and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love/Happy Trails" which is completely omitted. The rest of the songs are pretty much complete although there is a quick pause in the first minute of "Panama" that skips a couple seconds of the tune.

Pictures are from about that time, however they are lacking in clarity. c) Disc 1 is all green with the words "Rapes Stockholm - Disc 1" on it. d) "Little Guitars" is not in the track listing, but is on the disc. e) Track 8 of Disc 1 is "Everybody Wants Some!". f) Track 4 of Disc 2 is "Panama". g) Disc 2 is all orange. In small print, along with the typical "all rights reserved" stuff, it says, "For licensed broadcast use only". h) Unchained starts off sounding pretty muffled, but toward the end of the song things really start to clear up. It is an excellent audience recording or an average soundboard recording. i) "I'll Wait" and "Jump" sound incredible with Eddie actually playing the keyboard live. j) Dave stops in the middle of Everybody Wants Some to tell the crowd how great they are and how much better they are than the England crowd. k) Has some classic DLR quotes spread throughout the disc, such as... "Honey, don't stick your tongue out at my unless you plan to use it!"

The CD package only lists the songs...it does not assign track numbers to these songs. Therefore, "House Of Pain" is listed seperate from the Bass Solo, which is misleading. The same goes for "Everybody Wants Some" and Ed's solo. b) The sound quality is OK. There really isn't any bass to this at all. If you have a good EQ, or a really good bass boost, you'll need it. Otherwise, it's a pretty good show. c) At the end of the CD, it fades out as they start doing "Panama", so this is not a complete show.

The middle part of the record is also all white (you can't even see it spinning). Inside the cover is a sheet of paper with a picture of the guys (the one made up with heaps of little squares from 1984). The writing at the bottom says Copyright by Duck Production 1985. "Limited Edition only 350 copies. b) Quality: Not so good. It sounds like it was recorded by someone in the audience with a walkman. It's not as good as the "Latin Connection" album (soundwise). The highlight is in the middle of Runnin' With The Devil when Dave orders the band to stop while he pays out on some guy who threw a water ballon at him while he was singing. "Wait a minute fellas. Some stupid Muther Fucker threw a water balloon up here. Don't be throwin your fuckin shit up here you faggot-ass muther fucker!!!!" Dave also comments that it's "Labor Day Weekend". c) This show came from either Karlsruhe (Sept 1, 1984) or Nerumburg (Sept 2, 1984) which were the last two shows DLR ever performed with VH!

This is actually the last show of the tour and it is Dave's last show to ever play(?) with Van Halen.   Disc 2 tracks 4-11 were recorded at the Niagra(?) Falls Civic Centre in Niagra falls, New York 9/6/78(?) during the 'Van Halen' tour.   (?) denotes words that cant quite be made out, due to the poor artwork b) Quality of the Nuremburg show is a highish B, sounds like an audience job, not too bad, the Niagra Falls would be a lower B, seems a touch 'bassy'.

A black and white shot of the band joking around is in the lower left. f) The back is a stage shot of the band on the 5150 tour.

It fades in and out before and after every song. The sound is excellent. There is some separation between Ed & Sammy's guitars, so it is a stereo recording. b) They do that mad double time pace on "Wild Thing" when Eddie and Sammy trade off on guitar solos. c) The only redeeming qualities about the disc is that it has a longer version of 'Best of Both Worlds" (just under 8 minutes) and has "Good Enough" & "Wild Thing" which were both cut from the Live Without A Net video. The version of "Rock 'N' Roll" on this disc is different than the one that's part of the LWAN video. d) Rear artwork is the top 3/4ths of a Peavey "5150" amplifier ad. The text about the amp has been replaced by the setlist. It also indicates a date of May 14, 1986 which is incorrect. e) Alternate rear artwork is pretty plain. It has a photo of Sammy and one of Edward on a white background. A top hat and wand is visible, along with the setlist, the show location, and the incorrect date of May 14, 1986.

Special thanks to Robert P. Dunckler who has carefully restored this live-concert by declicking, dehissing and digital remastering the original recording using the Sonic Solutions Nonoise System. Cover Photo: Allen Bryght P. The Concert Series 1992 All rights reserved-made in Luxembourg-Eastwood Productions s.a.r.l. b) The cover is an old picture of Ed wearing no shirt & black and yellow striped pants at a Soundcheck (possibly the Monsters of Rock tour). c) Sound quality is good but lacking bass.

Most likely from the 1995 Balance tour Pay-Per-View show from Toronto. d) Front artwork appears to be a composite of body parts, seen are a nose, and eye, a hand, and an ear. It's done in yellow tones. An oval that looks stamped (it isn't) contains the text, "The Original Artists Concert Series" and "...Collect Them All". e) The inside of the booklet is black & white and contains an ad for other items in the series. f) The back of the booklet is yellow with the set list in white text. g) The rear artwork contains the setlist in red text over a portion of the same image from the cover.

USA 1986 is a better in terms of sound quality because there is much less audience noise which doesn't drown out the music. e) "Good Enough" fades out at the breakdown before "Rack a What?" f) Great CD with good sound quality & awesome packaging/artwork!

The total running time printed on the artwork is 70:07 when in fact the actual recording runs almost 2 1/2 minutes longer. c) Track listing shown here is taken from the artwork. d) This disc was manufactured in Brazil. e) Sound quality is very good, as it is on most of the New Haven CT CDs.

Tracks 1-3 are the same recordings as on "California Calling" (US Fest '83). Track 3 is the same recording as Track 10 on "California Calling". Dave stops YRGM and introduces Alex for "Happy Trails". He then says, "I tell you what, f*ck the concert. Let's go across the freeway and get a drink. What do you Say?" These tracks on this disc have less audience yelling and are a little clearer than "California Calling's" Recording. c) Tracks 4-14 are with Sammy Hagar. These 11 Tracks are all from different sources. i) Tracks 4-7 sound like they are off of "Live Without a Net". ii) Tracks 8-9 are from the OU812 Tour, no idea of what source. iii) Track 10 different source. iv) Tracks 11-12 sound like they are from the Holland Secret Gig show. v) Tracks 13-14 are still two different sources. d) All 14 Tracks are high quality, definite soundboard recordings. e) The case is cardboard like the one for "California Calling" and "RH:RN". It is a tri-fold and has trays fixed on the middle and right sides. The entire inside is a photo taken from a stage (which appears like Wembley stadium) with the trays placed over the photograph. f) The cover is blue with a picture of a small kid, (like the 1984 cover), in a circle holding a razor and shaving his face. The kid has an earring in his left ear and he is against a black bathroom tile background within the circle. The VH wings are hanging above the kids head. g) The disc was pressed in 1995.

It is actually "Poundcake". b) Disc 1, Track 8 is listed as "Ain't Political Blues", instead of "A Apolitical Blues". c) Disc 1, Track 9 is misspelled as "Finish What You Startet", instead of "Finish What Ya Started". d) Disc 1, Track 10 is listed as "Living On Top Of The World", instead of simply, "Top Of The World". e) Disc 2, Track 7 is listed as "Rock 'N' Roll Romeo". It is actaually a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Rock 'N' Roll". f) The sound quality is quite good, but not brilliant. g) Contains rare recordings of "A Apolitical Blues", "Good Enough", and "Wild Thing". h) The CD is manufactured by a German company which is probably why some of the songs are misquoted. There is German writing all over the back cover - e.g. Gesamtspielzeit (mit Applaus), which translates into "Total Playing Time (With Applause)". i) The front cover has a picture of a very NON VAN-HALEN LOOKING guitar player, perhaps this is how the German company perceives Van Halen? j) There are no pictures on the actual CD's, they are just plain silver with the track listing printed onto them. k) The liner notes state that there are many other artists available in this series. (Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Led Zeppelin, etc.) l) May actually be parts of many tours. For example, "One Way to Rock" and "Rock 'N' Roll" suggest the 5150 tour, but the rest of the material suggests parts of the For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge Tour and maybe the Live : Right Here, Right Now Tour.

Sammy says "Take two" at the beginning of the set. This contradicts the date on the LPs, as the second night would have been May 28th not the 29th as printed on the back jacket. b) The track listing comes off the back of the LP. c) The LPs are not labeled. Side one has a plain light green label on it, and the others have plain white labels on them. d) The recording starts off with an announcer telling the crowd to stop throwing things, or there may not be a show. e) Michael's Bass Solo comes between "Panama" and "Runnin' With The Devil". f) "Moby Dick" is actually "Mine All Mine". g) Alex's Drum Solo comes between "Mine All Mine" and "You Really Got Me". h) "Eagles Fly" is done solo by Sammy. i) Edward's Guitar Solo comes between "Best of Both Worlds" and "There's Only One Way To Rock". j) The sound is a good audience recording.

"A.F.U." as the title, and "Van Halen" across the bottom. b) The back cover contains a picture of all four band members. Each one is labeled, so we know who they are. (grin) The track listing is printed along the bottom, and the show date (Jan. 25, 1989) is printed in yellow near the top. c) The discs are somewhat plain. They have a wacky set list printed on them. Nowhere on the discs, soes it say that it contains "Van Halen". Each of the song titles is similar to the actual title. But only if you are familiar with Van Halen, would you be able to tell which song is which. d) This is an above average audience recording. Everything comes through nice and clear without too much, if any, crowd noise. To compare with any other VH boot, it would on a par slightly below "Rocking My Hometown", with the exception of a slight noticeable tape hiss. e) This show was recorded in Osaka, Japan during the "OU812" tour after the conclusion of the "Monsters of Rock" tour. This, however, is not noted on the disc's packaging and the listener is left clueless as to the actual location of the concert. This is rectified after the fourth track of Disc 1 when Sammy says "Okay, Osaka!" and proceeds to tell the audience about Mike's indulgence for any and all forms of alcohol. f) Sammy refers to Track 2 of Disc 1 as "Hot Summer Night", rather than "Summer Night". g) During the bass solo Mike plays a small snippet of "Dueling Banjos", a song from the "Deliverance" soundtrack, then launches into "Runnin' With The Devil". Unfortunately, "RWTD" doesn't run the full length. Sammy enlists the aid of the audience to sing the chorus, then segues into "Why Can't This Be Love". h) During Sammy's intro of "Mine All Mine" you can hear the recording device being bumped around, but it only lasts for a quick second. i) There is virtually no audience screaming in between each song, so hearing Sammy's between-song banter is easy. This is due to the Japanese concert audience giving the performers the common courtesy and respect of listening to what the artist has to say, and paying close attention so that they can understand what they have to say as well. j) "Best Of Both Worlds" starts out almost identical as it was performed on "Live Without A Net", but then pauses briefly so the band can perform a small bit of "A Political Blues". Also, towards the end of "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll" Van Halen plays a quick snippet of "Pleasure Dome", believe it or not, then segues back into "You Really Got Me". The version of "Rock And Roll" on this disc is marginal, at best. Alex noticeably misses a few beats during the intro, and there's a quick bit of static towards the end of the song. k) Overall, a really good double disc set. Obviously not a soundboard recording, but the sound is still clear and good, with a slight echo, and can be improved upon with an EQ in order to balance everything out. The tape hiss that's evident on Disc 1 is also on Disc 2, but just slightly less. If you like Van Halen, then this disc is a must-have to add to your collection, but look hard because it is rare.

In the upper left hand corner of the black (right side) is "Van Halen" in all capitals with "Double Dutch Courage" below it. All text on the front cover is white. The front cover shows the band standing against a wall. Eddie has what looks like a black Music Man strapped to his shoulder. b) The inside cover has a picture of the band on stage holding hands as they prepare to bow for the audience. c) The back cover is all white. The titles of the songs and track times are listed on the right side. The band's name and title of the disc are on the upper left hand corner. Near the lower left side the band's line up is listed. d) The disc itself is silver and lists each song followed by the song credits in parentheses; i.e. "Summer Nights (Van Halen, Van Halen, Hagar, Anthony)" e) This is a nice soundboard recording from the OU812 tour. This was recorded in Tokyo because Sammy mentions this city in several songs throughout the recording. The exact date of the show is not known. On the back cover it does show a production date of 1992 from METAL MEMORY Records. f) The end of "Mine All Mine" provides a smooth intro. into Alex's solo. g) Eddie has some nice blusey fills throughout "5150". Actually, all of his chops and improvs sound great in this song. It sounds as though he is having a great time playing this song in concert. Mikey and Alex help back him all through the song. h) Eddie's solo sounds great! He has a very psychedelic intro. with a bunch of "wiry" sounds before his Cathedral part of the solo. i) Even though the source for this show is not listed, it is from the 1989 Tokyo Dome show in Feb. of that year. j) This is one of the few bootlegs that has live OU812 songs like AFU (Naturally Wired) and Black and Blue. If you can find this one, it provides a nice "live OU812" addition to a collection.

Mike's was cut completely. d) "Mine All Mine" is the same version that appears on the "Jump - Live" single. e) Comments from people that have the disc: 1) Great version of Panama. 2) It has the coolest version of 5150 that I've ever heard. 3) The band is really tight and Sammys vocals are right on key during the entire disc. 4) "There's Only One Way To Rock", has both Sammy and Ed switching off leads during the whole song. And Ed's guitar solo with "Eruption" and "Cathedral" is top notch. 5) This recording is one of the best live bootleg shows I have heard. I highly recommend it. I Can't Tell You ---------------- Format : Compact Disc Label : DANCING HORSE - DH-022 Source : LIVE AT TOKYO DOME '89.2.1 (SOUNDBOARD) 1) One Way To Rock 5:20 2) Summer Nights 5:40 3) Panama 4:30 4) A.F.U 4:17 5) Why Can't This Be Love 3:46 6) Mine All Mine 4:48 7) Drums Solo 3:57 8) "5150" 6:22 9) When It's Love 5:40 10) Eagles Fly 4:19 11) I Can't Drive 55 4:29 12) Best of Both Worlds 4:46 13) Guitar Solo 6:23 14) Black and Blue 4:29 15) You Really Got Me 3:49 Total Time - 72:35 Notes: a) Front cover has (l to r: Mike, Sammy, Al, Ed) standing in front of the set with a yellow pyro explosion in the background. Toward the bottom is a pink VH ring logo with the title in white lettering. Sammy has a white t-shirt on that says "Rockasaurus". b) Back cover is solid black with the track listing in yellow lettering over top of a faint gray VH ring logo. c) The disc is silver with black print, a picture of a horse and the phrase "not for sale promotional copy". The bottom of the CD just says "I CAN'T TELL YOU" in black print. d) The CD comes in a slightly over sized, high gloss, thin cardboard envelope. e) This is a soundboard recording of the February 1st 1989 Tokyo show, from the OU812 tour. f) The sound of the disc is excellent, with Sammy's vocals coming through very clearly indeed. They seem to stand out over the music, unlike some of Sammy's studio work with Van Halen, where his vocals often seem to tuck into the track. The musical width of the instruments, however, seems to be somewhat restricted through production. Alex's drums are clear, but Edward's guitar isn't in the classic "brown sound" mold. It seems quite thin, although not dissimilar to his sound on the OU812 album. Michael's bass, too, seems somewhat buried in the mix. It is fairly evident that, aside from Sammy's vocals, the producer has attempted to recreate the sound of the OU812 album. "When It's Love" and "Black and Blue" in particular, sound much like their original studio mixes. g) The setlist here is quite mixed, with 4 songs from "5150", 4 from "OU812", 2 Dave-era tunes, as well as Alex, Sammy and Edward's solos. Interestingly, only six minutes of Edward's solo is included here. The obligatory "One Way to Rock" and "I Can't Drive 55" are also included. Strangely, "Jump" is nowhere to be seen ! h) In summation, this is an excellent disc, especially since OU812-era bootlegs are quite rare, and because of the excellent quality. This is as good as the 1988/89 tour gets, disc-wise, and is recommended for all.

The back says ADD quality, but it is not as good as "I CAN'T TELL YOU" (from the same show). It is lacking a little treble.

Both discs have pictures of Drawin's ape on them along with the CD title. The front cover has individual concert pictures of each band member and the VH swirl logo on top with OU812 in place of the letters VH. The inside cover has a shot of Ed, and the back has a 1989 concert shot of Ed, Sammy and Mike. b) This is a good audience recording with very little crowd noise. c) The sound of this recording lacks some depth to it, with the bass weaker than the other instruments. The vocals are the most prominent part of the recording. d) The artwork incorrectly states that this show is from 2/2/89, but Sammy mentions at the end of the show that they will "see some of you tomorrow," which is a give-away that this is actually the Feb 1 show. e) Sammy mentions that they are filming the show. f) The track listing on the back artwork is missing "Best Of Both Worlds" which is Track 4 on Disc 2. g) Sammy adds some of his own vocal stylings to "Runnin' With The Devil" that result in a strange rendition. h) The solo part of "5150" is a very good performance. i) Sammy's voice breaks up a little at the end of "Eagles Fly," and he mentions that he just got over a cold. j) "Rock And Roll" is also a very good version, and features Mike singing some of the lyrics. k) One of the best parts of this show is the last song, "You Really Got Me." It contains some cool jamming and vocals that switch between parts of "It's Only Rock And Roll" and "Woman From Tokyo." Also included on this track is a great jam of "Pleasure Dome!" l) Overall a B+ audience recording. Best of all, it's a complete OU812 show.

Pretty good quality. There's a lack of bass, but the vocals, guitar and drums are clear. b) Lineage: TDK SA 90 Cassettes > Technics RS-B505 Cassette Deck > MAGIX Cleaning Lab > WAV > TLH > FLAC c) This is a 1st gen cassette transfer. The cassettes were received from the person who recorded the show in late 80's/early '90s. d) There are two gaps in the audience noise between "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and "Rock and Roll", presumably because the taper was trying to preserve tape. The discs are split at a tape flip. A tape change occurs during the guitar solo. e) The start of each track begins with a very small gap, so if you seam them together to play the whole show, you'll end up with a little audible glitch at each track. f) The last track (You Really Got Me) includes portions of "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It)" by The Rolling Stones, "My Woman From Tokyo" by Deep Purple, and "Pleasure Dome", which hadn't been released yet. g) Soon after this was shared, the bootleg company "Lost and Found" issued this along with the Feb 2, 1989 show on 4 CDR's (LAF 2380-2383) called, "Two Nights At Big Egg 1989". h) Released on October 25, 2016.

Unfortunately, some background crackling is noticeable and it increases to a distracting level after the 4th track and lessens by the 10th track. b) This would be a brilliant boot if it weren't for the crackling, which forces the overall rating to no higher than a B+. Although the first 4 songs are pretty clean, the crackling can best be described as like listening to a very old, very scratchy LP.

It's a German import that came in a round tin with the VH logo embossed on top. A Backstage pass copy from the F.U.C.K. tour is included. Included here because it's somewhat rare, and it includes 2 unreleased live professionally recorded tracks...Mine All Mine, and Eagles Fly. The other 2 tracks are from "Right Here: Right Now". b) Mine All Mine...For other bands, this would be great, but the live version of this is definitely below Van Halen's normal standards. This track really shows how produced the album version was. The sound quality is still excellent. c) Eagles Fly...Sammy's second solo from the F.U.C.K. tour. This is from his '87 solo album. He plays it acoustically...it sounds great. 316 --- Format : Compact Disc Label : LIVING LEGEND RECORDS - LLRCD 189 Source : Recorded Live During the U.S.A.-Tour In 1992. 1) When It's Love 5:30 2) Man On A Mission 4:53 3) Right Now 6:06 4) Rock Candy 5:47 5) Why Can't This Be Love 3:44 6) Give To Live 5:55 7) 316 Eddie's Solo 9:31 8) You Really Got Me / Cabo Wabo 7:51 9) Jump 4:05 10) Rock n' Roll 3:43 11) This Dream Is Over 4:25 12) Best Of Both Worlds 4:35 13) Top Of The World 4:43 Total Time - 70:58 Notes: The song "Rock Candy" is NOT played by Van Halen.

The 3rd disc is a diffrent cam and angle from a 1st gen VHS tape by Hasse. b) The quality on the first two discs is an "A-", and a "B" on disc 3. c) Video Specs: MPEG-2, 4:3, 720x576, 25/fps, average bitrate: 9.28Mbps d) Audio Specs: Dolby Digital, 48kHz, 2.0 channels, 256 Kbps e) This is three single layer DVD's in PAL format. f) Taper for discs 1 and 2 was seated 5 meters from the mixer. g) The band was in a superb mood and messed up a lot. Eddie fooled around with the Beatles classic Norwegian Wood. Sammy got a Viking helmet that he used. They skipped the encore break and had fun on stage sharing a drink. h) "You Really Got Me" includes "Waitin' For The Bus" by ZZ Top. i) The start of disc 1 and the start of disc 3 come in during the first song on those discs, so the actual beginning is missing. j) The background for the artwork is a flag of Norway that's been striped up with black and white stripes to look like a VH guitar.

The sound seems very distant at first, almost like the taper is in another part of the Hall. It does get better, and isn't too bad once you crank the volume. There is some talking by someone close to the taper. It doesn't distract too much, but there is more during Edward's guitar solo, almost like they are bored. Overall, it's distant with echo, but not bad. b) Front artwork shows a Balance-era photo of Edward in front of a big screen which looks like it contains a picture of a rocky canyon. The name of the show is at the top, the band's name is at the bottom, and there is a red VH swirl logo. c) The inside artwork shows a Balance-era promo photo that's had some sort of water effect added to it, distorting the image. The set list is in white text. d) The back contains a 1993-era shot of Edward playing live. The set list is in white text. The show information, and band member details are also present. e) The discs contain the same shot of Edward as the cover. A logo for the label that issued the discs is at the right, and the name of the show is at the bottom. The discs are labeled 'A' and 'B'.

Beautiful enough that someone proposed to his girlfriend at the show, via Sammy Hagar of all people, see track 1 of disc 2 for details. c) The title for this recording was a given with Sammy's babble between "Judgment Day" and "Panama". d) This recording was the first effort by the taper. Recorded on DAT using a Sony D7 DAT deck and Sonic Studio microphones. The taper was as about center as you could get. e) This recording is taken from the master. There was a mad whistler in the left channel. The whistler becomes so annoying at points that it is distracting from the recording which is very nice minus the intrusion. The whistles were isolated and eliminated, the audio from the right channel was brought over to the left channel to ensure a seemless play. These moments are usually fairly short and well noticable not nearly as annoying as the whistle blasts. f) Cover art shows the four characters referenced in the title on a stage with some speakers and a crowd in front. The title of the show is in yellow text. g) There is no rear artwork.

It's an italian import, produced 1994, ADD quality. Liner notes include several full color band photos from the show, cover of the disc has a picture of Ed jumping with his striped guitar. Both CD's are picture discs - one with Sammy singing, the other with Ed. d) Interesting points on the disc: i) Pleasure Dome/Drum Solo: Alex transitions into a funky latin-type beat near the end of his solo, complete with some keyboards thrown in there. ii) So This Is The Love: This is a new original song written by Sammy that he did acoustically...he says during the show that he wrote it for his girlfriend in about July 1993. iii) Eagles Fly: Not Sammy's acoustic solo version, but with the whole band playing with an arrangement close to the original album version. iv) Unchained: Sammy doesn't do too bad singing it. v) Rockin' In The Free World: Their cover of Neil Young's song.
