Saw this on youtube today…

I sort of know this dude (he’s from NZ) and he wouldn’t make this up.

Says in his comments that official announcement will be out this week.

I guess we will see.

Wondering why “A Political Blues” is being added onto the extra disc as a “bonus” track when it was the standard track on the CD release only?

The Collection II covers the four consecutive #1 albums released during the Hagar era: 5150 (1986), OU812 (1988), For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge (1991), and Balance (1995).

The journey begins with 5150, Van Halen’s seventh studio album and the band’s first to claim the top spot on the Billboard 200. Certified platinum six times in the U.S., the record treated fans to hits like “Dreams,” “Love Walks In,” and “Why Can’t This Be Love,” which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The group returned two years later with OU812, a quadruple-platinum smash that delivered four Billboard Hot 100 hits, including “Finish What Ya Started” and “When It’s Love.”

The accolades continued with For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, which earned Van Halen its first Grammy Award for Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Album. Debuting at #1 and staying there for three weeks, the album achieved triple-platinum certification. The record produced an incredible seven singles, including hits like “Poundcake,” “Top Of The World,” and “Right Now.”

In 1993, the band released its first live album, Live: Right Here, Right Now, before returning in 1995 with Balance, its final studio album with Hagar. The album was another commercial triumph, debuting at #1, selling more than three million copies, and earning a Grammy nomination for “The Seventh Seal.

The Collection II concludes with Studio Rarities 1989-2004, an exclusive compilation that assembles eight gems from the Hagar era for the first time. Among these rarities is “Crossing Over,” the B-Side to Balance’s “Can’t Stop Lovin’ You”, and the band’s only non-album B-side.

The compilation boasts other exceptional highlights, including the band’s cover of Little Feat’s “A Apolitical Blues” and the instrumental “Baluchitherium,” which were originally left off the vinyl versions of OU812 and Balance, respectively. Additionally, the set features two songs the band contributed to the Twister Soundtrack – “Humans Being” and the Grammy- nominated “Respect The Wind.”

Rounding out the set are “It’s About Time,” “Up For Breakfast,” and “Learning To See,” which were recorded during the band’s temporary reunion with Hagar in 2004. All three debuted that year on Van Halen’s second greatest hits collection, The Best of Both Worlds.

Even more the case with Baluchitherium!

The Studio Rarities 1989-2004 appears to be all about the cuts never before available on vinyl.

‘ Doin’ Time’ is on Balance, but not Baluchitherium ?

With no unreleased tracks, I guess they decided to steal a few off

other albums. I can understand for the purpose of vinyl.

I would rather have the CD’s left intact.

Guess I’ll have to make CDR or digital copies

with the original tracking order. :(


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

I would like to have songs on the rare cd such as Between Us Two or even I Want Some Action mixed properly not songs we have heard before.

How so?

5 CD Set: https://www.amazon.com/Collection-II-Van-Halen/dp/B0CF2T3SFT/ (Number of discs ‏ : ‎ 5)
5 LP Set: https://www.amazon.com/Collection-II-Van-Halen/dp/B0CF2T8BS6/ (Number of discs ‏ : ‎ 5)

The use of the word “discs” for the LP set is odd, but otherwise, it looks okay to me. (outside of missing the track info for OU812, Carnal, and Balance that is)

Odd they’re releasing it on the anniversary of Edward’s passing. Maybe they think that will help bolster sales. Easy tie in with the media.

Exactly that’s a bunch of garbage….. What about “Between Us Two” the unreleased song Sammy said was coming out and would see the light of day. I am stoked that they are doing this for sure as the Sammy era deserves to be re released and remastered but not take advantage of an unreleased track and put AApolitical blues and the other tunes that made the original cut and call them rare unreleased or whatever…. LAME!!!!

I am sure the VH camp wouldnt let the Between Us Two out and kicked their heels in cause they fuck up every cool thing that fans would love to see. I am sure it’s not Sammys fault I am sure the blame falls on the “dysfunctional” as Wolf calls it VH camp. What a shame.

However that being said, it’s cool to see the Sammy stuff come out. I am in :)
