    listening to the most awesome sound quality bootleg i've ever heard ZERO it struck me that a) gene simmons has to be the worst producer ever to make VH sound not that exciting. and b) ted templmen knows just what to do with these guys cause he took some of the same tunes and made them stellar as compared to gene simmons' versions.

    I agree. Gene Took the fish out of the water and told it fly on those demos. Of course it was probably a bootcamp for the assimilation of Edward Van Halen into KISS.

    Just as a side note, remember the boys used KISS's equipment on the "Zero" demos. Ed was not comfortable "dubbing" on some of the tunes.

    Either way, I wouldnt trust Gene Simmons over Ted Templeman when it comes to producing classic Halen !

    One thing I will say is that at least Mike is pretty audible in the mix. His bass sound is more focused and it sounds like he was given more freedom to "play" instead of holding down root notes. I think Mike never gets his dues. Other than that, it lacks Van Halen sound quality. It still kicks ass and gives me goose bumps though! I love woman in love.
