    Default "Light In The Sky" possibly on new album?

    I really like the song "Light In The Sky" off the Warner demo tapes from 1977. Went to listen to it again this weekend, and now cannot find any sign of it on google video lists...poof, gone. The other warner songs are still there, so wondering if this one could've possibly been wiped before the new album comes out? Curious as to thoughts....

    I don't think Dave can sing that song anymore. Very high notes and screams.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    That's a good tune with lots of potential. I could see them using it with a reworked lyrics/melodies to accommodate for Dave's current range (and the lack of MA).

    That's part of the plan, Jeff. They only tell a select, very exclusive group of random fans about the new record. That's their idea of making their silence "talk!"

    I always loved 'Light in the Sky' and would welcome a newer version of it on any potential new VH release . After being blown away by the reworked demos on ADKoT , I say that the band would do further justice to more of the 'old' material

    Yeah.

    Also, you're a good man Jeff, but please don't tease with the wording of your VHND article titles. I thought "In the Midnight Hour" was going to be for download! My assumption was not that all out of the question with all the '84 Wild Life recordings you released.

    So no "ITMH" or new album? Assuming the latter of what Foamfoot said is the case!

    Hey Jeff, please release some of the demos and mythical gems of the Van Hagar era. You mentioned posting a clip of the music from Between Us Two. There has to be more. Do you have to clear it with the VH camp, first?

    Someone - anyone - who ever gets to interview the guys in the band needs to ask about tunes like that. Maybe a twitter user could drop a question on Wolf, and plead with him to ask Ed.

    Eddie told Guitar World in late '83 that they had cut "thirteen tunes" for 1984. That doesn't mean they were all finished, and as we all know, some tracks were probably recycled later on.

    But, as I wrote in my Classic Rock article on the making of 1984 a couple of years ago, my hunch has always been that VH / WB decided track listings quite late in the day. Why do I think this? Well, why else would all the album covers - the original vinyl sleeves - have song titles listed in a random order? On '1984' the cover was even printed without a tracklist - instead it was a sticker slapped on the rear sleeve (certainly on the first print runs).

    The answer, I think, is ... they were still working on the order of the songs, and possibly even on what tunes made the final cut right up until the end.

    So, Ted sent the band this schedule (below) in August '83, with tunes 'in the can' to date ... at that point in time. Note how close this was to the later stages of mixing and mastering, and it's interesting that some of the tunes don't even have titles (or, at least, they don't have the titles they ended up with).



    I also have some press clippings from late '83 in a box where other song titles were mentioned (some we've heard of) - 'Eat Your Neighbour', 'Blow the Man Down' (the old traditional sea shanty!), 'Anytime, Anyplace' - as detailed on the Ted letter - and, of course, 'In the Midnight Hour' was also mentioned in various press rumours about what would be on the then upcoming 1984 album.

    The title "1984" is directly related to this issue.

    WB had given them a deadline of finishing within the 1983 calendar year and the band was majorly pissed off... they wanted to work into 1984 and not be rushed.

    Naming the record 1984 was just a little jab at the Warner Bros' brass to remind them of this.
