    Its no secret all of us want unreleased studio tracks by Van Halen. Below is a list of unreleased tracks that I know were recorded. Some of these tracks were re-worked and made into something else. I have NO DOUBT that i'm missing many other unreleased tracks. Feel free to add them in your replies. And, if I'm wrong about anything I posted, let me know.

    It's the Right Time and That's Why I Love You ... They do have a lot stuff in common.
    Can't say 100% they are the SAME song, but they do share lots of similarities.

    Between Us Two and Learning to See ... I remember reading that they ARE the same song with different lyrics.

    Eat Thy Neighbor and Summer Nights ... I also remember reading something about Dave and the few rehearsals he went to over 5150 in 1985 and the band worked in a some tunes, this 01 (ETN) in particular and Dave had some lines and vocal melodies done that Hagar supposedly used on Summer Nights.

    I guess there are some old threads here about these unreleased stuff. Right now, I only remember this one here:

    https://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/thr...Baritone-Slide
    TT: "Wow, you can play acoustic guitar?"
    EVH: "Sure. What's the difference? It's got six strings... It's a guitar!" - 31.12.1978

    I'm ready for unreleased material from the Sammy years. I've heard all the unreleased material from the Dave years that I care to hear.

    Sammy Hagar did the probable. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Shocker.

    I cant imagine not wanting to hear any unreleased VH material, regardless of singer.

    I can see that, but I was just assuming we were talking about unreleased studio tracks.

    The band was simply more prolific in their early years, therefore more unreleased tunes.

    I don't think VH is the only band that falls into that description. The Stones are still releasing songs that they recorded in the early 70's that didn't make the cut, but I doubt there is too much unused material from 2015.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    It is amazing how much incredible material the original band wrote in a short period of time, before they were signed.
