This Record Store Day, “Live: Right Here, Right Now” is finally being given an official release.

It’ll be available as a 4 LP set on 4/22.

I have the RSD release schedule and it’s on there. It’s being issued by Rhino.

Van Halen ‘Right Here, Right Now’ to make vinyl debut
Van Halen’s first live album – 1993’s double-platinum ‘Live: Right Here, Right Now’ – will make its vinyl debut on Record Store Day as a limited edition 4-LP set.

LOS ANGELES – Van Halen’s first live album – 1993’s double-platinum Live: Right Here, Right Now – will make its vinyl debut on Record Store Day as a limited edition 4-LP set. Recorded in May 1992 as the band was wrapping up their massive world tour in the support of their classic, triple-platinum album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, the collection finds singer Sammy Hagar, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony firing on all cylinders and delivering over two hours of Van Halen’s signature hits.

LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW will be limited to 7,500 copies on 180-gram translucent red vinyl and available exclusively at select independent music retailers on April 22 for $99.98.

The vinyl collection has all 24 songs from the original CD release, plus three additional live recordings. This marks the first time that audio for two of the tracks (“The Dream Is Over” and “Eagles Fly”) will be released, as they were previously available only on the DVD version of Live Right Here, Right Now. The third, “Mine All Mine,” was recorded in the summer of 1993 during the second leg of the tour and was previously released as part of a European CD maxi-single for a live version of “Jump.” All tracks from the original live album were newly remastered from the 5150 studio master tapes by Bernie Grundman, who also cut the lacquers.

The new vinyl version of LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW is the first Van Halen reissue that focus on the Sammy Hagar-era. It also kicks off a series of upcoming vinyl releases spotlighting Van Halen’s time with Hagar, which will be overseen by the band’s long-time engineer Donn Landee. Additional information about those releases will be announced in the coming months.

LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW debuted 30 years ago, on February 23, 1993. The collection peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold more than two million copies in the U.S. alone.

The group filmed and recorded LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW across two shows at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California on May 14-15, 1992. The result was a concert album packed with exhilarating live versions of Hagar-era hits like “Why Can’t This Be Love,” “Dreams,” “When It’s Love,” “Finish What Ya Started,” “Right Now,” and “Runaround.” The album also includes live versions of earlier Van Halen anthems like “Panama,” “Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Love,” and “Jump.”

LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW gives each band member a chance to shine with Alex Van Halen’s pummeling drum solo, Michael Anthony’s “Ultra Bass” solo, and Hagar’s acoustic version of his solo hit “Give To Live.” One of the show’s biggest highlights is Eddie Van Halen’s ripping guitar solo. For more than 10 minutes, he lives up to his reputation as the ultimate guitar god with a solo that touches on some of his best-known instrumentals: “316,” “Cathedral,” and “Eruption.”

I need someone to refresh my memory. Was the Westwood One broadcast of this before or after the album’s release? What’s the difference between the 2? Is the broadcast less doctored than the album? Is the set list the same?

The official CD was released February 23, 1993. The WWO Superstar Concert Series #93-23 was broadcast the week of May 31, 1993, which makes sense as that would have been Memorial Day. The radio show was just an abbreviated version of the full 2 CD release.

Possibly of interest… the “Cabo Wabo Rock Radio Festival” was broadcast in August of 1992.

I still have my master cassettes of the Cabo Wabo Rock Radio Festival.
The Cabo part was recorded at the 8-20-1992 show & it was broadcast in December 1992.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

The “Cabo Wabo Rock Radio Festival” was a live broadcast AFAIK.

Without digging out the tapes & listening to them – if I recall, the broadcast I recorded was the Fresno 92 show(s).

They did interviews with the band discussing the music. I believe those interviews were recorded on 8-20-1992.

Don’t recall exactly where I got that information.. I referenced an old cassette list of mine.

What?!?! I didn’t think it would be released until Record store day April 22. Was it costly?

The existing vinyl is a bootleg that was released in 2021:

The bootleg was 3 LPs, the official release will be 4 LPs and include bonus tracks
The bootleg was blue, the official release will be red
The bootleg was around $50, the official release will be around $100
(not sure if there are other differences)
