    You are not alone in your high regard for those originals on DD. I believe Van Squalen and Dave's Dreidel agree with you. I agree that DD was so close to being one of VH's best if they hadn't rushed it and included so many covers.

    I remember JD and i had a heated argument at CVH, because i swore i'd put the
    originals on Diver up against anything on FW.

    He was livid, and said i was comparing a lazy, "for fun" studio experiment, with a thundering
    masterpiece.

    In a way, he was correct, yet i still think DD had ridiculous potential as THE follow up
    to the mighty fourth album.

    JD, Show & i, would go at it.

    I swear they kinda fucking hate me, but also enjoy me, as well.

    I'm a lot (ahem) less opinionated on here.

    LOL, I remember our "debate" about whether it was harder to play the Sam material or the Dave material.

    Can't believe that was over a decade ago.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Lol, I dont remember that, but I also dont doubt it happened. I love those originals too, but honestly for me, from a drummer's perspective there is so much more Al couldve done with that album. And he did on the subsequent tour, flying all over his kit just like all the previous tours. On the album, save for HEH, hes kind of going through the motions compared to how he played those tunes on the tour.

    My VH favs would fit on one CD 79-80 minutes worth.

    It would be all CVH from the 6-pack.

    It would *not* include:
    RWTD
    YRGM
    Unchained
    Women In Love
    Dance The Night Away
    I'll Wait
    Oh Pretty Woman

    I'll look up what I put on that CD disc and post it later.

    2. Romeo Delight
    3. Loss Of Control
    4. Mean Street
    5. In A Simple Rhyme
    6. Unchained
    7. Hear About It Later
    8. Light Up The Sky
    9. On Fire
    10. Girl Gone Bad

    The last four are always fluid. Other contenders periodically in those spots: "Dirty Movies", SGMAD, Sinner's Swing, HFT, Little Guitars.
