    Default BlabberMouth Runs Tentative Track Listing For New 'Best Of 1978-1984'

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...wsitemID=66276

    VAN HALEN: 'Best Of (1978-1984)' Release Date, Track Listing Revealed - Jan. 31, 2007
    BLABBERMOUTH.NET can reveal that Rhino Records has set a March 13 release date for VAN HALEN's "Best Of (1978-1984)", the first single-disc compilation exclusively spotlighting 1978-1984, the group's original David Lee Roth era. The album, which coincides with VAN HALEN's March 2007 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, contains over an hour of remastered classics from the albums "Van Halen", "Van Halen II", "Women And Children First", "Fair Warning", "Diver Down", and "1984". Highlights include "Runnin' With The Devil", "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love", and "And The Cradle Rock". Also featured are "Everybody Wants Some", "So This Is Love" and "Oh, Pretty Woman". The CD booklet will contain rarely seen photos and liner notes.

    "Best Of (1978-1984)" tentative track listing:

    01. Runnin' With The Devil
    02. Eruption
    03. You Really Got Me
    04. Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    05. Jamie's Cryin'
    06. Dance The Night Away
    07. Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    08. Beautiful Girls
    09. And The Cradle Will Rock
    10. Everybody Wants Some
    11. Mean Street
    12. Unchained
    13. So This Is Love?
    14. Where Have All The Good Times Gone
    15. Oh, Pretty Woman
    16. Dancing In The Street
    17. Jump
    18. Panama
    19. Hot For Teacher


    According to MelodicRock.com, VAN HALEN — featuring David Lee Roth on vocals — will likely play two dates in Las Vegas at The Pearl at The Palms Casino on April 27-28 before kicking off a full North American tour sometime late spring. A list of 17 VAN HALEN tour dates was posted online over the weekend, but those are now said to be "merely a proposed itinerary/routing that is no longer valid," according to the site.

    Billboard.com reported last week that a deal was nearly done for VAN HALEN to embark on a summer tour that would include 40 amphitheatre shows.

    Guitarist Eddie Van Halen recently told Rolling Stone, "Everything is up in the air. We don't want to say anything prematurely," hinting that VAN HALEN would tour this summer whether David Lee Roth was the singer or not.

    The band now includes Eddie's son Wolfgang on bass, replacing original bass player Michael Anthony.



    My god, what a horrible track listing. The only song worth a damn on that CD that we haven't seen before on the other compilations is So This is Love. Gosh, those liner notes and rare pics in the CD booklet are worth picking up Jump for a tenth time, I guess. Sure it is.

    Come on, Ed. You and Alex HATE Dancing in the Street. But you're putting it on anyway? Talk about catering to Grandma and Grandpa. Sheesh. Three songs off Diver, all the covers, no Little Guitars?

    A third Greatest Hits. Utterly mind-boggling. How convienient that it will be released the day after the Rock Hall induction. At least there's some marketing savvy being exercised...not exactly core fan friendly, but then, that's par for the course.

    1. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    2. Consistency of clusterfucking backward progression.

    3. Belief that there are actually Van Halen fans who don't own one of the first two compilations.

    4. SHEER STUPIDITY?

    5. Test of our loyalty?

    I'm starting to think a full-scale Flock of Seagulls reunion would be more entertaining.

    No new music? Guess what Ed... count me out.

    Worse than the fact this is another Greatest Hits compilation, Women and Children First has the least representation.

    Who on earth doesn't own Jump at this point? At least they could have put songs on there that weren't on the other 2 greatests hits releases. Even that would be stupid though.

    I don't think even a couple dozen peach or kiwi or spiced apple jack tootsie roll flavored coolers could make anything good of this fiasco.

    Eh, he knows I'm still fully capable of smacking him upside the head.

    Besides, he also knows if he does anything back, they'll accuse him of abusing the elderly.

    Pretty much the same tracks they tried to sell us barely more than two years ago? Nah, it can't be, maybe there's a catch - maybe they had Wolfie re-record the bass parts! That constitutes brand new music, right? Right?

    So how many dozen copies will this sell total?
