Box Set Of First Six Van Halen Albums Coming Next Month
Van Halen's old label, Warner Bros. Records, will release a box set called Van Halen: The Studio Albums 1978 - 1984 on March 26th as a limited edition. The six-CD package will contain the band's first six studio albums, including its 1978 self-titled debut, 1979's Van Halen II, 1980's Women And Children First, 1981's Fair Warning, 1982's Diver Down and 1984's 1984, which was the last record by the band to feature original singer David Lee Roth until 2012's A Different Kind Of Truth.
Guitarist Eddie Van Halen admitted a while back that he can't pick a favorite out of the band's many albums: "Well, I tell ya -- to me, they're all special. They're all a bit different, but I love 'em all. You know, they're all a piece of me, so they're all very special."
The Studio Albums 1978 - 1984 features all six albums in remastered versions and packaged in a clamshell box.
There are no bonus tracks or other extra features of any kind. The set can be ordered at VanHalenStore.com or Amazon.
