Please note that this is a pre-owned item and that there may be imperfections and signs of wear. It is in the lack of effort that was clearly put into this collection. It's not a glaring omission, but something worth noting. That said, for a fan of this genre - and perhaps anyone who grew up in the 1980s - much of the music here is stellar. Perhaps those will be included on the second volume? Although more investment clearly went into later videos, it is obvious that the band did not wish to go over-the-top on producing Thriller-esque videos, especially in the 1980s.
However, that will not stop me criticising what frankly is a lazy release. Actually, I only included this paragraph as a geography lesson. With this greatest hits package, Warner Brothers had the opportunity to go all out and release every video that Van Halen had done up to this point. Still, whilst it does not appear that any restoration was done, these videos have never looked better than they do here. Unfortunately, this video compilation was not put together by a true Van Halen fan.
There is average wear on the case. If you can get your hands on a used copy, I'd recommend it, certainly not worth the retail price they ask for in stores. We ship within 1 business day of payment! Away from their own commercial success, Van Halen are also regarded as one of the most influential bands in the history of rock. It's true that they could've used a little more from the early years of Roth, but I was still happy with what I got, because I like Hagar better. Thank you for supporting small business! Please message for combined shipping. Major issues are noted above but please expect normal wear on a pre-owned item. It appears that some dude at Warner Bros.
. Van Halen was going through hell at that point,Sammy quitting,Dave in and out then Gary in what a mess. These have to be the best collection of music videos by a single band. Theres 3 videos with diamond dave, 10 with poodle boy hagar aka- bette midler, and 1 with gary cherone. Condition: Good, Condition: Tape is clean. There is average wear on the case.
I love to watch these over and over again. They shot more videos with Sammmy then Dave but even they missed some of Sammy's best like Top of the World and Feels so Good,And they hardly even did Dave,they put Jump, Panama, Hot for Teacher,that's it. This set only includes the 3 hit Roth Era videos from 1984. I give it 5 stars. . .
