How is this different than the same box set I already have? Looks identical?

Probably a re-issue ahead of “The Collection II” (Hagar era)

I see by Ron’s post that it says “Releases 25 August 2023″, but when I visited Rhino’s site this morning I didn’t see it in their store.

I only saw The Collection II, The Japanese Singles (red vinyl and standard vinyl sets), and VH II, WACF, & DD on vinyl.

Scott,
Can you post a picture of what you have? The “Deluxe” box from 2015 only had VH1, 1984, and Tokyo Dome in it from what I recall. I don’t remember a box of the 6-pack vinyl (other than the Walmart ones last year).
Thanks.

I’ve seen 2 versions, if this is what Scott has been talking about.

One has the original logo with “Van Halen” in color across the logo and “The Collection” written at the bottom, and the other has the original logo in plain silver logo with nothing across it or on the front cover.

Vince, do you have “The Collection” in your possession?

The above photo is what I have for VH re-releases this year.

I will. I just ordered it from another site.

Scott,
The 1st link (Amazon) is for a set of CDs issued overseas in 2013, not the 2015 remasters.
The 2nd link (merchbar) is the 2023 LPs from the 1st post in this thread.

I was hoping you had something that looked like the 2023 release when you said, “How is this different than the same box set I already have? Looks identical?”

I meant it looked like the identical recordings we already had. My bad.

OK to reask the question, collection 1 vinyl, which is a great set to buy for remaster / quality audio vs just having original albulms?
