    Default Van Halen Best of Vol. 1 Special Edition?

    Hey folks, I have a VH best of from 1996 that was given to me from my cousin who had a friend that worked on the "inside" of WB. It is a card board version thats silver from and back with te vh logo in black and the disc instead of being black and gold is black and silver. It also has a black sleeve that in the upper left hand corner has a red square. In that red square it says van halen in silver/ october 1996 best of. I was wondering where I could find out more info on this and if it's worth anything? Has anyone else heard aboput this packaged version or sepcial version? Hope to hear from ya'll soon.

    I have this version of the cd too. I don't have any info on it but I did see it on ebay a few times. To bad it didn't have Hot For Teacher like the Japan version.

    Speaking of Best of Volume 1, my CD has Running With The Devil with the verses and choruses all out of order. Does everyone have this or was it some kind of limited edition thing? If I go buy BOV1 now will I get this version of Devil?

    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Best_of_Volume_I

    Initial pressings of the album contained an alternate version of "Runnin' With the Devil" where the verses, chorus and solos were arranged in a different order than that of the original album version. It was reported that this was accidental and subsequent pressing have replaced this version with the one found on Van Halen.
