    Today on Audiogalaxy I downloaded a track called "Big Trouble", an unmastered demo from 1977...has anyone else heard this song or know if there are other unreleased gems like it floating around? [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Oh, yeah, there's a sh*tload - search for Van Halen and Demo
    As well as demos of known songs ("Everybody Wants Some", "Ice Cream Man", "Fools", "D.O.A." and others) there's some good songs that will sound familiar ("Voodoo Queen", "Last Night", "Bring On The Girls") and some that didn't make the cut ("I Wanna Be Your Lover", "Light In The Sky", "Act Like It Hurts" and some others). Maybe someone will be nice enough to post all the names, or else you can go to vhboots.com (I think that's right) and look for "That's All Folks" which will list most of them.

    Get a trade with somebody. People selling off E-Bay may charge too much or have a bad copy. Somebody will trade you a good copy. And THAT'S ALL FOLKS is great stuff. It's like hearing two more albums worth of early VH. BIG TROUBLE, SHE'S THE WOMAN, GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD...man, those are great songs (even if they repeat a few parts from later VH songs).

    Of course, maybe WB will releasing this stuff in some box set. I highly doubt that the label would just ask VH to leave without having some power over future releases. WB will probably have Sammy remasters and an unreleased set sometime in the near future. Old labels ALWAYS do that.

    No doubt about it, Van Halen has a lot of good demos from the 70's. I hope that someday we'll get to hear them all on CD in some kind of a box set.

    'Big Trouble' is one of my favorite unreleased songs by them. Classic VH sound.
