    Default 6-Pack: Your "Best Of" on one 33 1/3 LP with no more than 18 minutes each side.

    Why 18 minutes.... because you get the maximum quality sound mastering at 18 minutes or less.

    Not wanting to argue that point. Wwe're talking a Van Halen LP with the best possible sound. Here's an article that explains it:

    https://masterdisk.com/blog/2018/1/2...r-vinyl-record

    If you insist on including ADKOT, that's okay, but i really wanted to make this thread about the Classic 6-pack...

    The problem I've run into, since I don't have the physical LPs/CDs for each release, is determining the track time exactly. The recent re-mastered CD of the debut album for example lists the track length of ATBL as 3:47. Wikipedia lists ATBL as 3:50, and All Music Guide lists ATBL as 3:49. So I guess there's a margin of error, depending on what source one uses to measure the track length...

    Ha, I started but then it seemed more like a homework project. Too much research and math. I did get this far though:
    Side 1
    Track 1 - Mean Street

    Side 2
    Track 1 - Dancing In The Street

    I guess this idea was just too involved. I didn't even do the math to see if both of your album sides are actually under 18 minutes.

    That's pretty close to what I would have. I'd have to find a way to get Romeo Delight and Tora Tora/Loss Of Control on there though. Probably dump I'm The One and GGB. Ugh.

    I absolutely love Romeo Delight and I really like Tora Tora/Loss Of Control. I'm The One has to be on there. It exemplifies everything that made Van Halen so awesome and amazing.

    You cant go wrong with any of them. But since RD and LOC are my #2 and #3 tunes all time, I have to have them on there.

    Back in the day, I used to get heavily involved in math, when attempting to squeeze the most songs onto a 90 minute cassette for a band compilation. I'm quite out of practice for that now.
