    Original HQ Oakland '81 vids are up at mtvmusic.com

    http://www.mtvmusic.com/artist/?name=van_halen

    New searchable site. Audio is tremendous. They're still missing So This Is Love though.

    That audio is pretty amazing. Maybe this is a sign of things to come...??

    Who else would've remastered the audio but the band?

    And- Has anyone seen that footage at the end- with the applause, and the band coming to the front of the stage leading the crowd? That is new to me...

    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I don't think that's remastered. I just think those are the originals mtv has on file. We're use to hearing crappy youtube audio with these vids.

    But what about the end of the video? has this been seen by anyone before? Did MTV really edit out the last 30 seconds for the last 27 years?

    I wonder if some of these videos are spliced together. If you watch Unchained, at the 2:25 mark, the Frankie is in Ed's arms but the rest of the video has him playing the White/Black strat style guitar with the White dots on it. I haven't watched the other ones yet. Hmmm....

    As much as I hate MTV....watching Hear About it Later, makes me almost want to forgive them for all the shitty programing they have on now.......almost.

    That part IS spliced. The guitar is the big give away. Remember they played 3 night in Oakland back 2 back. It is most likely from another date. The story goes that the other nights were only partially fimed/footage wasn't good. You can search the 50+ topics we have had here regarding Oakland 81.

    Yet the Oakland vids are available at youtube, in high quality versions.

    Van Halen - "Unchained" 81 HQ (5:06)


    Van Halen - "Hear About It Later" 81 HQ (4:57)


    OK, I'm having trouble coming up with HQ version of the third one...shoot me.

    Van Halen - So This Is Love (3:37)
