    Wonder what the mix sounded like beforehand. Interesting story.

    This is intriguing to say the least. But not sure if possible. Ted would know there was changes unless they are very minimal.

    I still say Ted is the 3rd most important member of VH (behind Ed/Dave). He nailed the first 6 and 4UCK. Pretty sure Ed always said he sped up the process which if we listen to VH3 that strategy would have been needed.
    Right here I say....

    I really doubt that Donn Landee remixed VH1 without Ted's knowledge.

    Who knows. Donn may have said Ted didn't know because he wanted to make it sound like he was going rogue. I would imagine lot of reefer was smoked back then and its been almost 50 years. Plus when people get older they start taking credit. Now I will say her stating how she has a funny comment to say off camera kind of tells me they did remix it. Whether on Ted's orders or not. Maybe an exec heard it and said "remix it Ted" Ted's mix my have been the one they heard so Ted tells Don "remix it and lets see if they can tell a difference"

    Donn and Eddie were going against Ted a few albums later so who knows. Maybe Donn kind of goes against the rules

    Uhh no. Ted was important, but you still need a great band to produce the results he got. The producer is not more important than Al and Mike. C'mon.

    If you read the book about Templeman, which Ted fully participated in, then this comes across as clearly false.

    Ted and Donn's relationship was one in which if Donn wanted something redone, he would simply have said to Ted "let's remix this", not gone behind his back.

    Their working rhythm was to keep sending remixes back and forth to each other until they agreed on what worked.

    The more I think about it, the more total rubbish I think it is.

    Is Donn still alive? We need an interview from him. He was tight with Ed for a while.

    Default VH 1 secretly remixed by Donn Landee! Asst. engineer Peggy Mccreary Interview

    Donít believe it for a second. And if it was anything he probably made very minor changes to boost loudness or something. I seriously doubt he completely remixed the album. Donít believe it for one second. I just donít believe he would fuck around with the bandís first album without letting Ted know.

    Iím sure Donn was given far more leeway after the first album when both he and Ted were very familiar with their music and their sound. And we know by FW that Donn and Ed were doing stuff on their own so that I would believe.

    Is this Dave's finest vocal performance? I think so ...

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    Ted and Donn were one unit. They had worked together for a long, long time before Van Halen, and you can hear their signature sound on everything, even the beefheart album they did sounds like they did it. There is no remixed by Donn there was just mixed by Donn in the first place because it was his job. I think itís a little disrespectful to their great body of work and the signature production sound that is so clearly on all the records they did, itís an amazing team accomplishment and might be the best stuff WB ever put their name on.

    I still donít think Donn would have made any massive changes to the final mix unless he told Ted he was going to do it. I get that they were very close and I understand that completely I still donít think he wouldíve made changes without telling him. This was the first album for this band, Iím sure they wanted to make sure they were on the same page with it.

    I think this is just a bunch of nothing. That's just the original engineer perfecting the original mix. That's not a remix, which would be either by a different artist or post-release.

    What Ted wrote in his book is there was zero tension on any of the first 5 CVH records. The only one where there was friction is 1984, after Ed built 5150 and started recording there.
