    One of those albums where pretty much every song is a radio staple. I don't think any other Van Halen achieved that.

    I wish I had VH1 on vinyl still. And a turntable... That's how I'll always remember their first few albums and, for me, that's how they sound best.

    I think I own 06 or 07 VH's debut on vinyl, man. Most are brazilian versions and there is this Argentine one with everything in Spanish, including the titles. I love it! Anytime you want any of them, my friend! I used to own the cassette as well, but I can't find it now. Only 1984, 5150 and OUtake12.

    Love being able to hear the individual multi-tracks.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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

    The impact the first record had....specifically the impact of Eddies guitar playing was monumental. It literally stopped people in their tracks. Reading through so many of the tribute magazines...and your hear so many accomplished guitarist who played the first record when it came out...asking... how does he do that.... is that even a guitar. Not many records changed everything. The first VH record most definitely did !!

    I still have VH1 on vinyl over at my parents old house, at least it should be there in the old stack of vinyl records from back then

    Or 03.
    Maybe 04.
    Who knows ... 05 or 06?
    But you know what? 07 is a nice number, too.
