    Default The Dave TV unreleased songs

    I've been a VH-psycho/bootleg collector for about 20 years and I'm still not sure about the unreleased songs Dave put on his Internet "Dave TV" thing at the end of the '90s. Does anyone know the origin or heard of rumors of the origins of these songs? Obviously, unlike what bootlegs/Youtube vids say, "Kicks" and "Crosstown Traffic" are not Van Halen--I always thought that they were "Crazy from the Heat" leftovers. He doesn't have the Kermit The Frog octave in either of those plus they're covers so it makes sense.

    "Tramp" certainly seems like "Your Filthy Little Mouth"-era.

    "Shine the Light," which despite the Kermit vocals I love, sounds like nothing he's ever done. I was thinking the "A Little Ain't Enough" era. Not Becker of course, but maybe that's Steve Hunter. It certainly doesn't sound like Kilgore for the next album sessions either.

    My favorite unreleased song from DLR is Cruel Obsession.

    I think it is a really good tune and it sounds like a fully mixed track, maybe not mastered but I may just have a low quality copy. Sounds YFLM era with Kilgore if I was to hazard a guess.

    I have never heard Tramp.

    Anyone can PM me and I will send any unreleased DLR I have.

    Gentlemen of Leisure I believe is Van Halen.

    But I think Kicks and Crosstown Traffic are YFLM era solo. I think both of those are extremely average.

    Shine the Light is pretty cool, would sound a lot better as a final product, that seems to be a demo.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    After further listens--and I've listened to these many times since '99...that's not '85 Dave. Some guy said at the 46-second-mark on "Crosstown Traffic" Dave did a mid-'90s thing. That about did it. If it was '85 he would've most likely had a high-pitch scream or two like in "California Girls," "Gigolo," or "Easy Street." I'd wager it's from '95 when he did some covers (for The Non-Stop Blues Bustin' Mambo Slammers).

    "Cruel Obsession" and "Kill the Guy" are good stuff, too--but when the hell's "Shine the Light" from?!
