    According to Sammy, VH recorded two versions of the song. The first one was produced by Bruce Fairbairn and the second with Glen Ballard.

    Apparently the song was so good, that Fairbairn wanted a credit for that song and was fired as a result.

    The band re-cut the song with Glen Ballard but the revised lyrics (written by Ballard) were never recorded.

    I'd love to hear the Fairbairn version.

    Who am I kidding I'd love to hear ANY new VH.

    I would love to hear the Fairbain version, the production on Balance was great so I imagine this would also sound great! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I didn't know that they actually finished a version with Bruce Fairburn. Guess we'll just have to wait for Ed and the gang to grow old and die so that the record companies can start cashing in on these unreleased gems a la Hendrix.

    Default Between Us Two

    Hi guys - just checking to see if anything has surfaced for this song. Is it still just conjecture?

    Saw the VH Fan Halen show on AXS last night and got to thinking about that song...

    I am as interested in this song as the next Van Hagar fanatic, but every time I start dwelling, I just crank 5150, OU812, F.U.C.K., and Balance and set my mind at ease.

    If we got our hands on it, it would be like the "Holy grail" of The Hagar years...

    I bet Sammy has it in his vaults, but Eddie would kick up a stink if he released it

    I believe they also had to pay Sammy to put Can't Get this Stuff No More on BOV 1. I'm wondering if that was worked up around this same time or if that was something done a good amount of time prior.

    It's really a shame as it was clear that they were not at the end of the road from an artistic/creativity standpoint but rather, just couldn't get along.

    Had the reunion with Dave worked out that would have at least been a silver lining but since that didn't happen either.....

    there were 2 versions of the song. the first was Closer to You and that was produced by Fairburn. he wanted writing credits and Ed and Sam (who Sammy says were actually getting along at the time) told him to get bent and reworked it wtih Glenn Ballard. It was then renamed Between Us Two. I don't remember if Sam ever worked with Ballard on new lyrics or not but I know that's what ed wanted at the time.

    I don't think any part of the song has surfaced since by either Sammy or Van Halen. there was some thought that the music was used for Once and that is not right, the keys on Once were from a song called The Wish recorded for the FUCK sessions-sammy retooled the lyrics for the wish and released it as returning of the wish.

    that's all I got, if it was already covered I aplogize.

    Great music. Too bad it was wasted. No offense to Gary but VHIII sounds like someone trying to shove a square peg into a round hole.
