steecoe: Why do certain people always have to rag on Hagar in threads that have absolute zero to do with Hagar. Fuck them. They are dickheads.

Yeah, that’s what really frustrates me and why I’m not so excited about this news. Yes, I hope the live recording sounds great and yes, I hope the remasters are great, too. But for f**k’s sake, why can’t they give us something a bit more unique and special? It’s as if Ed feels the only thing he can give us is the same 6 albums repackaged. Part of me feels that the last “Remastered” collection may have beeen a WB cash grab, since they truly controlled the catalog back then and Ed wasn’t really in any condition (or maybe didn’t even care) to negotiate. Maybe now, being clean and sober, he wanted to clean up those 6 albums his way and if that’s the case, I hope they sound amazing. It still doesn’t mask the fact that we’ve been fed a constant diet of “Best Of”s and rereleases for far too long. I hope this is the last time we see the reissue of these albums. It seems obvious that there won’t be any more reunions with Hagar, so I think that entire catalog will be ignored as long as Dave and Eddie are breathing. Therefore, from here on out, the only acceptable releases will be 1) new material 2) boxed sets of archival material or 3) new live CDs/DVDs/BluRays. I love the live stuff and the fact that they’re releasing a show is cool. I just hoped it would be more (to quote Dave) autobiographic. I was hoping for a video with extras, behind the scenes, interviews, etc. Since a tour is obviously in the cards, I will excuse the latest offering and look forward to seeing the live shows. I just hope all future releases are geared toward either honoring the history or building the legacy of Van Halen.

Does anyone truly believe they didn’t go in and redo Dave’s vocals??

I bet the live album will sound very different from the bootlegs….. and I am certainly OK with that.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

I would *hope* they would fix up some vocals a bit. all live albums are fixed up.
Although if not…. gives some hope for an official live CVH release some day since they can’t really fix up vocals now w 60yo dave.

They cut Dave’s movie clip out of it, so that would shave about 10-15 mintutes off, no?

This video release runs ~127mins
http://www.vhboots.com/tokyoincident2013.html

Take out the 34 secs at the beginning, a couple of minutes at the end and the 4:32 “short movie”, and the 2hr running time seems to match up pretty well.

I haven’t paid attention, honestly. I was doing some browsing into the remasters linage to try to pull everything back into perspective and this link came up. I’m thinking I’ll probably grab the Live Deluxe set and the vinyl first and see if it’s dramatically improved enough to go replace my back catalog again. I’ll probably get the complete vinyl set just for the VHOCD in me, but probably not repurchase the CDs.
