    Default 'Unreleased' VAN HALEN Rainbow cover (1976)

    VAN HALEN Covering RAINBOW Classic In 1976; Previously Unheard Recording Released - May 18, 2010

    The Van Halen News Desk web site has been updated with following message:

    "As a tribute to the late, great, Ronnie James Dio (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF), the Van Halen News Desk has dusted off an old recording from our archives. It's VAN HALEN covering the early RAINBOW classic 'Man On The Silver Mountain'! This recording is from VAN HALEN's club days…1976, to be exact.

    "This is a totally UNCIRCULATED SOUNDBOARD recording, never before heard by anyone. It's never been in any trader's circles or in any collector's hands. (Some bootleg collectors do have a live version of VAN HALEN covering 'Man On The Silver Mountain', but this is a new recording, from a different performance entirely. This version sounds much better than the version that people have heard).

    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Perfect example of the touring jukebox they needed to perfect to be anywhere near the VH we all know of! Definitely interesting if not the best cover!

    Damn cool.....imagine how good this would be with a good recording! Rip Dio

    It's better than the version from 1975 that has been around for a while. Dave isn't Dio that's for sure...but it's cool.

    I hear stuff like this and wonder why they can 't release a bunch of old unreleased stuff...there must be at least 10 albums worth

    It certainly sounds better but the performance and Roth's vocals are no where near as good (relatively speaking) as the other muddy sounding oft-bootlegged recording from the '75 La Canada High School show. Alex at times is all over the place and Roth barely knows the lyrics. It's funny that Mike does that exact same scream at the beginning of both known recordings of this tune. I wonder if there's any other Rainbow/Blackmore (aside from the handful of Deep Purple) covers they did during Eddie's mid-'70's Richie Blackmore phase when he was even dressing a bit like Richie:

    I thought everyone kind of clammed it up on this one, except maybe Eddie.

    Al was getting to cute with his fills, he gets off a few times. I've never been blown away by Dave's vocals in the club days, so I don't think he sounds any worse than anything else from that era. Yeah he comes in too early at the beginning, that's actually kinda cool. Mike does that scream on a lot of songs.
