    Default Do you think a new “Best of” will happen to capitalise on Ed’s passing?

    This is just an opinion, but I think until we get a supposed album or box set of rarities, demos, etc, I think it’s inevitable we will get another greatest hits. I just hope it’s a lot different than we’ve already had, and not relying so much on the hits. Sure “Jump” is fine on there. “Right now” aswell, but it would be cool to see an album where it showcases his best work. It would a great excuse to have “Rise” and “Catherine” on an official CD release too.

    Here’s my idea-

    ED’S LEGACY

    CD 1.
    Eruption
    Ain’t talkin bout love
    I’m the one
    Atomic punk
    On fire
    Outta love again
    Spanish fly
    Women in love
    Fools
    In a simple rhyme
    Meanstreet
    Hear about it later
    Unchained
    Cathedral
    Little guitars
    1984
    Jump
    Hot for teacher
    Girl gone bad
    Donut city (Unreleased on CD)

    CD 2

    5150
    Summer nights
    AFU (Naturally wired)
    Sucker in a 3 piece
    Poundcake
    Judgement day
    Right now
    316
    The seventh seal
    Aftershock
    Humans being
    Me wise magic
    Fire in the hole
    Rise (Unreleased on CD)
    Catherine (Unreleased on CD)
    As is
    Big river

    I have no interest in buying a "best of album" when I already have all of the songs. Pass.

    I wish they'd release stuff on colored or splattered vinyl. Would love to get Roth's stuff remastered on something other than boring black too.

    Hagar era remasters, and some live stuff. From both eras, please.

    They can do better than the two live albums they’ve officially released.

    I agree totally, but I think a compilation will come instead.

    Best of Volume 1 and The Best of Both Worlds are still available. Hell, all of it is on YouTube, so I don't see a point to another compilation.

    None of the two greatest hits CD sets included any material from the Cherone era of Van Halen (obviously not the most popular era though). So a new 3 cd set of Van Halen's best songs remastered with all 3 eras isn't a bad idea if they wanted to go for it. Alex and Wolfgang would have to figure the tracklisting out. Include That's Why I Love You the unreleased VH3 track and a few unreleased VH songs and you have a selling point for fans to buy another greatest hits CD. I think that would be the only point in doing a new one to include the Cherone stuff because like poster above me said that stuff it's out everywhere. With the Cherone stuff a remastered greatest hits compilation will feel more complete. Without You and Fire In The Hole should have been on the Best Of Both Worlds CD set. I like a more complete greatest hits cd to be called The Kitchen Sink, it just fits given that Ed wanted the tour to be called that with all 3 eras of VH on it. I would love for it to happen to celebrate Ed's music, it should be about the music.

    To be honest, I doubt they release anything. It's simply not who Van Halen is.
    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!

    I'm not following. We already had a best of. Then another one.

    If anything we need the unreleased, and Wolf ain't going there any time soon as per his 500 interviews.
    Right here I say....

    Hopefully the Warner Bros/Rhino unreleased 4 cds already mixed by Brian Kehew and ready to go will come out soon!

    Nothing will happen. For a long while. The Van Halen’s are busy.
