    Default The Holy Grail of Sam

    There is always so much talk about the Oakland 1981 video, and it's status as the most sought after Classic Van Halen era item, it got me wondering, what would be the equivalent of the Sam era? Is there one? What would you love to see released from the Sammy years? The best I could come up with was the completed recording of Between Us Two. What would you guys like to see released one day?

    IMO there isn't one, since they released LWON, which was pretty damn good, and the Toronto PPV is out there and professionally shot, which I thought was an awesome concert and tour.

    I thought the latter stages of the Balance tour was their pinnacle with Sam, Ed was relatively sober and totally focused on his playing because of his hip, and they were playing some tunes that kicked ass live, like Aftershock, Feelin, Amsterdam, etc. Ed was also pretty unbelievable soloing over the end of Eagles Fly on that tour. I know the shows I went to were jaw dropping performances.

    I would think the Holy Grail might be the footage that was cut out of LWAN.

    Good Enough, maybe Wild Thing and Addicted to Love.

    the only thing i'd like to see released from the hagar days is sam himself...i kid, i kid...

    a proshot show that i'd like to see from the hagar days is a Monsters of Rock stadium show...
    let's be real...EVH was GOD

    Runnin' might put too much focus on the fact that there's a little kid on bass - knuck

    Think you hit the nail on the head with a completed and polished version of Between Us Two, 'Van Halen's Stairway to Heaven.'

    Heck, I'd settle for Van Halen's Bonzos' Montreux.

    Just shut up and release 'em, Ed.

    The Holy Sammy Grail?

    The 1996 Father's Day phone call that Eddie made to Sam telling him to go back to being a solo artist. Sam claimed that his answering machine recorded the whole thing.

    Pro-shot of the "Live: Right Here, Right Now" tour. Especially, when they did 'Rockin in the Free World' to end the show. That rocked! Oh yeah, this was the tour when they brought out 'Unchained' for the first time with Sammy.

    I would absolutely kill to hear the VERY FIRST jam session they recorded. Sam's "audution" if you will. The one where they played what would become Good Enough & Summer Nights among some other jam tunes. Sam later said they used alot of the same lyrics he made up on the spot that session.

    I remember WB recorded a Sacramento show in November 21, 1988 and Sammy and I think Alex commeneted that it was one of the most down and dirty rock n' roll shows they've ever been a part of. They played an early version of "Pleaseuredome" and closed the show with "My Generation". It seems like they were really loose and inspired and havin' fun.

    Since it was pro, I'd like to hear that rather than my crappy bootleg!
