    What's the story with this tune? The boot doesn't sound like its recorded from a live gig.

    Anyone know when/ what era this was recorded around?

    It's supposedly from their first ever demo done in either 73 or 74. That demo was Angel Eyes, Simple Rhyme, Take Your Whiskey Home and Believe Me (aka Take It Back).

    The song was apparently considered for Van Halen II, but I don't know if they ever recorded it at that point.

    Great song.

    "Angel Eyes" has a very mid-70's, folky sound to it. I like the music, but I'm not sure it fits with Dave's voice.

    I think in the VH Encyclopedia it says that they were going to put Angel Eyes on VH II but they decided against it because it didn't sound like the music they were used to doing. Could you imagine Angel Eyes on a great party album like VH II?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I could see it sitting right between Women In Love and Beautiful Girls. As a matter of fact, I'm going to try listening to those tunes in that order later today.
