Whether you’re a hardened black-metal mage or a hardcore street punk, you can’t earnestly deny the bombastic brilliance of Van Halen. On the band’s second LP, vocalist David Lee Roth and star axeman, Eddie, deliver some of the most profoundly joyous and explosive hard-rock of all time, with as much vocal pizazz and heroic shredding as the microphones can handle. Our version was digitally remastered straight from the original tapes and pressed to 180-gram vinyl. There’s simply no better way to hear it.
Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing. Digitally remastered edition of this 1979 album.
Mastering engineer Chris Bellman, who remastered the original albums at Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios, was enlisted for this new version. In order to produce the original sound the band intended, Bellman cut straight from the quarter-inch tapes.
