    I can name dozens of EVH solos more exceptional. They, and Al's double bass accents during the outro, are quite good and by far the best parts of that song though.

    Those two solos are kind of restrained, especially for EVH, and they fit the song absolutely perfectly.

    I agree with that. But, again, pretty much all of Ed's solos fit the tunes perfectly.

    His toms sound great on Balance, too.
    Oh,yeah! I also like some tunes on F.U.C.K. that has such a great drum sound.
    The same goes with Balance. After that, they got some killer sound on both tunes from the BO Volume 1.

    I’m repeating myself here but so do these discussions. I never gave any thought to a lack of lyrics to SOI until I came to this site to read all the kvetching,. I just thought it was an incredible, smoking tune. It’s a raucous, rock and roll jam. I’m not sure why Sam or anyone needs to make apologies for it. Let’s talk about how Little Richards “keepa knockin” only has two lines and one of them is the title of the song….what a lazy, loser.

    [QUOTE=nj958;2409217]I wonder if some of the Hagar era problems stemmed from lack of material. It very much does sound like a Hot For Teacher variant. They couldn't go back to the demos for anything.
    The vocals sound more like a jam or demo than a finished track. I mean these are not a serious attempt to write lyrics:
    Hey
    Alright
    Whoo how 'bout 'cha now, come on, oh yeah
    Dig it
    That's right
    Is everybody ready?
    Let's go
    up 'n down
    (Round and round)Oh, round and round
    (Movin' up and down) In 'n out
    (Round and round)
    Yeow
    Crank it, blow out
    Uh, ouch
    Help me
    Now flip on over
    Oh baby, you know that I like it (woop, woop, woop)
    she choked the chain
    (Round and round) she got the hook
    (Movin' up and down) can't get away
    (Round and round) oh
    Fever starts to climb, reaching 105
    I need another shot o' your love
    Love, love is the source (of infection)
    Love, love is the source (of infection)
    Hey, Eddie
    Say what?
    Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about
    Wax it on down, woo
    Ready, set, go
    Oh yeah
    Woo
    That's right
    Love, loveÖ[/

    Nice 👍 lyrics Bono! Doh!

    Guitar 🎸 is stellar on this one ☝️
    OU812 Is a weak VH LP for my money 💰, but Ed killed it on this track.
    The band may have had too much control in the studio on this album. An outside voice may have helped the weak production etc. who knows, as itís all rear view mirror at this point

    It lacked a producer. Donn Landee is an awesome engineer but not a producer. The weakest VH records are IMO OU812, VHIII and ADKOT. And all 3 didn't use a rock producer. The rest of the VH records sound better because you had TT, Bruce Fairbairn, Andy Johns, Mick Jones - ppl who know what a great rock record is and how to produce one.

    Yeah, I suppose that might've changed things. They coulda got in big fight about the chorus.
