NOTES

Upon first listen of the “Reunion” compilation from Mean Street Studios, I immediately fell in love with the concept of coordinating a variety of diversely-sourced live material into a themed anthology with imperceptible song transitions. Van Halen has always been my favorite band and I wanted to pay homage by similarly assembling a series of collected live recordings I could share with fellow fans and listeners.

The theme of this particular compilation is Van Halen’s flagship 1978 world tour. The purpose is to honor and uniquely capture the very essence of the live Van Halen experience during their professional infancy. To provide the most expansive possible representation and historical perspective of this legendary time in the band’s history, I have included every song Van Halen performed live on the tour, sourced almost every one of them from a different date and venue, and sequentially positioned them in the same order they were played on location with as indiscernible song transitions as I could achieve.

My desired outcome is for the listener to feel as though they are a member of the audience witnessing the band’s musicianship, personality, and nuance developed throughout the duration of their first world tour in one all-encompassing show. At conclusion of the last song, I want the listener to feel exhausted, fulfilled, inspired, and excited to take the trip all over again as if they just spent nine glorious months following the band around the world.

Happy touring and bottoms up!
