    Default Shine On You Crazy Diamond - My DLR Rarities Collection

    I'm sure everyone on here has these songs already, but I've put them all together in a nifty little collection, with individual artwork and info about each track. If this post is breaking any forum rules (I'm too lazy to read), shut 'er down. I'm gonna post this on a couple Roth forums too.

    I was inspired to put this together by the last Roth Show podcast, with that killer acoustic blues number "Ain't No Christmas". This is by no means a definitive collection of rarities, but the best of what I could find, in the highest quality possible. If you have a higher quality copy of any of the mp3s included here, feel free to shoot me a PM and I will update the compilation.

    Here is the info txt included:

    David Lee Roth
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond
    Rare & Unreleased Collection
    2016

    Quality: lossless
    Info: This unreleased original song was written by David Lee Roth and was believed to be recorded in both 1973 at Cherokee Studios in Chatsworth, CA, and again in 1975 at an unknown location. There is no known public performance of this song, but it was played once backstage for some friends in the band's club days of the mid-1970s. Although they had originally planned to include it on Van Halen II, the band decided against doing so because it was too different from the other songs being recorded for that album.

    Info: This unaccompanied acoustic Humble Pie cover song was recorded during an interview with Jim Ladd on KMET, Los Angeles, CA, in 1982. At the end of the song, Dave did a plug for KMET, which is not available on any known recordings. The song is sometimes known as "Real Go Getter" or "Cookie Box."

It has nothing to do with Van Halen.” 5 days later, DLR himself told VHND, “On second thought, if all work is autobiographic, maybe this song is about Van Halen…”

    Van Halen’s Parody Of Labelmate Nicolette Larson: “It’s Gonna Take A Lot Of Drugs”

    On Greg Renoff’s new Van Halen blog, Van Halen Rising: How A Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal, there’s a fun little anecdote from producer Ted Templeman and engineer Donn Landee, who explain the origins of Van Halen’s parody of Nicolette Larson’s 1978 hit, “Lotta Love,” written by another labelmate, Neil Young, and reworked as “It’s Gonna Take a Lotta Drugs.” The tune was then tacked onto the end of the band’s 1977 Warner Bros demo tape:

    Landee: Ted and I were working on Nicolette Larson’s album. I let them hear it the tape, and David [Lee Roth] said, “Hey can I have a copy of that? We want to try something.” So David and Mike [Anthony] did “Gonna Take a Lotta Drugs” to that tape. When we played it back, David and Mike said, “Do you think Ted’s gonna get mad about this?”

    Templeman: “I had been gone from the studio. I had a meeting or something. So the guys went in there and wrote this song. [sings] “It’s gonna take a lotta drugs to get us through the night!” Donn put them on Nicolette’s track. [laughs] They loved that. I came back, and they were all nervous. But when Donn played it, I fucking cracked up.”

    There were all kinds of connections between the two labelmates at the time.

    First, Nicolette Larson just happened to be Ted Templeman’s girlfriend. She had also been a backup singer for Little Feat, another Warner Bros. band who Ted and Donn Landee had previously worked with (Templeman produced a few of their early albums, Sailin’ Shoes and Time Loves A Hero).

    Eddie Van Halen had contributed a guitar solo to “Can’t Get Away From You, on Larson’s album, Nicolette, which came out on September 29, 1978; apparently David Lee Roth was upset that Eddie had played guitar for anyone other than their band, and ultimately Eddie’s name was kept out of the credits because, as Larson says in this interview, Eddie “didn’t want his name used because they were Van Halen and that’s all there was to it. That was when they were just starting, and they were very much into being just Van Halen and nothing else.”

    Van Halen’s debut album had been released months earlier, on February 10, 1978.

    She also says Young had already recorded his own version of “Lotta Love” but apparently wasn’t planning on putting it out. When Larson expressed interest in the song, he gave it to her to record.

    Larson: “So I recorded it, and got it all ready to put out, then at the very last minute he changed his mind on Comes A Time and put it on that. So we both released it the very same day, actually. I changed it around quite a lot from Neil’s version. His is a lot different with all the ‘la la la la’s’ at the beginning.”

    Larson was later a maid of honor for bride Valerie Bertinelli, who married Eddie Van Halen on April 11, 1981. She died on December 16, 1997, as a result of complications arising from cerebral edema triggered by liver failure. She was only 45.

    Now we’re kinda wonderin’ what ol’ Neil thought of Van Halen’s version…

    I can think of two DLR songs that I could add to your collection if you would like me to send them to you. (you might already have them, let me know.)

    Cruel Obsession...a song from the YFLM sessions that never made it onto an official release. It would have been by FAR the best song on the album, don't know how he left it off. B+

    Shine The Light...I am not 100% sure, but I think it is from the YFLM sessions as well, but this is in more of a demo format, not as clean as Cruel Obsession. A decent song, not great. C+

    I can also think of a couple of other covers that have been unofficially released...Kill the Guy and Crosstown Traffic.

    Not wanting to hijack the thread, just offering to share if you don't have them.
    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

    Please, hijack away! Thanks for the suggestions DD. I couldn't find those songs anywhere other than YouTube, and I was kinda holding out for better versions to surface someday. But I'll gladly take whatever you'd be willing to send me and give it a re-listen.

    I also decided against including "Talkin' Christmas Blues" and the video vaijuju suggested. I love everything Dave does, but the replay value on both of those is really low for me.

    The Cruel Obsession one I have is pretty clean, almost album quality.

    The other three mentioned are of various "eh" quality.
