    Default Women and Children First Demos

    Ran across this, never heard it. Not sure if its been posted before, but I thought it was kind of cool. Interesting to hear the songs at demo stage, and know how they progressed to the album.

    I found this on CD at the now defunct (I've typed those last two words a lot lately) Middle Earth Records in Downey, CA 20 years ago in the summer of 1996. Mine has a red background on the front and gray on the back.

    This is the coolest thing on the CD, because I'd never heard it before I bought it ...

    And then I found this. Maybe my time could be spent a little more productively than surfing Youtube for rare VH stuff.

    There was an old demo I had from Napster, LimeWire, etc.
    I thought it was from this time period as well. I think it was listed as "Fresh", although it's been a while...

    "Fresh" was proven to not be Van Halen.

    Is this EVH, or not?

    Really, eh?
    I don't remember hearing that it was debunked... Any idea who actually played "Fresh" then?

    "Act Like it Hurts" was the working title of "Tora! Tora!", not the title of that unreleased instrumental.

    I actually have an uncirculated audio tape from 1980 of Eddie playing the riff from that song on an acoustic guitar, and he names the song.

    But I won't name the song now. I will debut that tape on VHND in the future. (no spoilers here! Just a "teaser," I guess!)

    Looking forward to it. Thanks, Jeff!

    I love that unreleased tune "Act Like it Hurts."

    I especially like Mike's bass sound from the track.

    Jeff, do you have access to any unreleased Van Hagar material. If so, will you please share it?
