    Does anybody own "Contagious" (1987)? This is as close to DLR Van Halen that anyone, including VH, has gotten to since 1984. Y And T was one of those on the edge bands that was always at the mercy of their record label-try to make a single ("summer time girls") and go on the road as an opening act. In 1987 they put out "Contagious" on Geffen, who basically let them put out the sound they always wanted too. Big, full production and awesome, heavy riff rockers with a "party like VH" sound. Dave Menketti IS David Lee on steroids AND plays guitar. HE should be the new singer of VH if they do not get Sammy or Roth back.

    Dude, I have this CD, but I haven't listened to it in a long time. Is it out of print?

    I will say this: the title track is one of Y&T's top 3 songs.

    The Real Deal

    PS: The Real Deal plays 2 Y&T songs, "Hurricane" (from 'Earthshaker') & "25 Hours A Day" (from the band's 1st London Records release 'Yesterday And Today)...always gotta mention the band whenever possible
    <a href="http://www.the-real-deal.com/index.htm" target="_blank">The Real Deal</a> does old VH better than any other band in the SF Bay Area. Hearing is believing...

    I like that album too! The best Y & T songs are LA Rocks, Contagious, Summertime Girls and Keep On Runnin'. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Yeah, good ole' Y&T, I used to go out with this gal back in high school who used to play that song "Keep on Runnin'" over and over......

    Ahhh, life was so simple back then.

    They had their moments for sure.

    I had "Contagious" a few months ago. If you're really looking for it though, check out Ebay and be patient 'cause Y&T cd's are some of the more popular ones to get bid on at the very end of the auction.

    Them and Hurricane cd's.

    As far as cool Y&T jams go, I really dig "Black Tiger", "Meanstreak", "Midnight In Tokyo", "In The Name Of Rock & Roll", "Summertime Girls" and a bunch of tunes off "Contagious". There are a bunch of great Y&T classics out there. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Hey guys, don't forget about "Mean StreaK". Anyone remember the video for this song where the chick's tongue flies out of her mouth and wraps around Dave's guitar/

    Speaking of Y & T, Dave Meniketti has released another solo album. I heard it's supposed to be a return to rock. He did a blues/rock solo albume a couple of years ago. The album really kicked ass too. It's called "On The Blue Side".

    Anyway, both albums are for sale on his website.
    www.meniketti.com

    He also has a discussion forum on his site....and Dave replies himself quite often.
