Re: Van Halen prepare first live album with David Lee Roth

I'll probably buy the live album simply because I'm a huge fan and completist of the Roth era stuff, but they REALLY need to release a live DVD/CD of some of the old classic era shows with Dave. It's way past time for that. From everything I've seen or heard from the last tour, the band played very well, but Dave was spotty. I'd still take a spotty Dave over Hagar any day of the week.

The box set seems like it'll be another huge missed opportunity. Why remaster the classic stuff again if you aren't going to at least jazz them up with bonus tracks? It's time for a rarities set of some kind.

Re: Van Halen prepare first live album with David Lee Roth

Is it really? What took them so long?

In the internet age it saddens me the wealth of material that still doesn't come out. They don't even need any production costs, they can just release it online and hardcore fans will eat it up.

Be wary. I've spoken with hardcore Roth/CVH fans and they report that Melodic Rock seems to take artistic license with anything VH and are rarely correct. Don't believe it until you see it.

If true, you can expect some heavilly doctored vocals. What I've seen on youtube ain't pretty.

Saw the show in '07 and it was dicey then. Volume hides much, but you could tell DLR was struggling even then.

Even when his voice was at its best, he was usually to busy dancing to get all his singing done.

You are correct!

Some media sources are more confident than others. While Ultimate Classic Rock still says it’s all “speculation,” MelodicRock.com announced, “Van Halen Live Album Confirmed,” along with this photo of what they claim will be the album cover.

Roth forgot the lyrics to one song at the show I saw in Raleigh

Well, there are plenty of videos on youtube of the entire concert that this cd comes from, so there will be no denying it if they doctor up the vocals.

I agree with this. I remember seeing several videos with this happening and he always did some schtick where he'd say "Quick Wolfie, to the chorus!!" If I'm not mistaken, it was during the new tune China Town.
