Product Description

Amazon.ca

"David Lee who?" is the question posed by this 2 Disc compendium of six years of Sammy Hagar-era performances. "Won't Get Fooled Again" is too obvious and tired a tune to be more than a novelty; better bets are firey renditions of "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and "Jump" (highlighted by Hagar's Michael Jackson impersonation). --Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars good live album by one of the best bands EVER Oct. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well, this mammoth double live album finally arrived in 1993 after VH fans had waited for so long. I am also going to point out that I like Sammy and Dave equally, so don't expect me to get into that Sammy vs. Dave thing.
But many still feel (myself included) that this album could have been even better. There are a few problems which almost ruined an otherwise excellent performance by the band. First of all, the sound quality is somewhat poor, with the instruments warbling and echoing too much at times. The loudest thing on here is Alex's crash cymbal. Why the heck is it so loud? Also, the song selection could have been better, unless you are a huge fan of every song off For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. To be honest, I really felt that if the band replaced Man On a Mission, Spanked, and In N Out with, say, Runnin With the Devil, And The Cradle Will Rock, and Dance the Night Away from the Roth era, this would easily be a five star album. Also, Sammy could have done without suddenly doing Cabo Wabo right in the middle of You Really Got Me, or stopping Panama so he could try to "rap" to the audience.
How about the upside to this album? Well, we can start with Eddie, of course. Although 316 does go on for a whopping 11 and a half minutes, his guitar work on here is simply amazing, as with all of the other songs. He also includes Eruption within this track, it is at the very end of it. Alex's drum solo is another highlight (despite the crash cymbal), and even Michael Anthony gets a chance to do a BASS solo. Give him a thumbs up for trying but he's just not a good bass player. Live versions of the few Roth tunes on here sound great, despite the fact that I really don't think Hagar wanted to sing them at all. When Its Love and Dreams sound fabulous.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great sound, weak track listing July 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
Live: Right Here, Right Now is one of the best sounding live rock albums ever produced. However, it suffers tremendously from too many indulgent solos and way too many tracks from the uneven For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album. Many of the tracks sound just like the studio versions sounding like a greatest hits album recorded live with a poor tracklist.
The album does contain many of the hits from the Sammy Hagar era such as "Right Now", "When It's Love", "Why Can't This Be Love", and "Dreams" among others. The album also contains two of his solo hits, "One Way To Rock" and "Give To Live". While these are both good tracks, his signature song "I Can't Drive 55" is noticeably absent. Eddie Van Halen's solo "316" is surely an excellent showcase on the album but Michael Anthony's "Ultra Bass" is way too long and Alex Van Halen's drum solo is nothing spectacular. One senses these were pretty impressive to see live but sound indulgent on a live album.
The album also suffers from featuring no less than 10 tracks from For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge and very little from the David Lee Roth era skipping completely over Van Halen II, Women and Children First, Fair Warning, and Diver Down. The addition of tracks such as "Dance The Night Away", "Beautfiul Girls", "Everybody Wants Some", "Take Your Whiskey Home", "Unchained", "Mean Street", and "(Oh) Pretty Woman" and limiting down to 3 tracks from For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge would have helped this album big time. Hagar's singing on the few Roth-era tracks are decent but don't have Roth's charisma.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring June 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember being all jazzed that one of my favorite bands was finally releasing a live album....I got home Put the Van Halen Right Here Right Now CD in the stereo, turned it up, laid back, and fell asleep. There are several problems with this live release. First of all most of the songs are lacking in energy. Van Halen can be an excellent live band but most tracks sound like those let's hurry up and get this over with kind of gigs. Ain't Talking Bout Love in particular lacks bite. The cover of Won't Get Fooled Again is not up to Van Halen standards. Also, the bass solo, pretentiously named Ultra Bass, is totally unnecessary. Michael Anthony at best is a mediocre bass player. In his solo he doesn't really play his instrument. He just makes a lot of effect noises. Yeah. In 1987 Van Halen released a video called Live Without A Net from the 5150 tour. Too bad that was not released with a companion CD. That recording is far superior to this dreck. This CD is about has fun as listening to a concert from the t shirt stand in the parking lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars A poor representation of a great live band Sept. 5 2002
By chatchi
Format:Audio CD
This is sad excuse for a live album - plain, clean and simple.

"Van Halen Live: Right Here, Right Now" is a culmination of live performances from the band's first three tours with Sammy Hagar. Unfortunately, the producers of this album thought that it would be a good idea to make it sound like this was one big concert.

If you listen closely, you'll notice that the "screaming crowd" in the background is, for the most part, manufactured. If you've ever been to a concert, you know that the crowd is always loudest before and after a song starts. Very rarely does a crowd yell and scream, at the top of their lungs, DURING the song. Especially during songs like "Dreams" and "Why Can't This Be Love" - songs where the crowd typically likes to sing along, rather than cheer.

All that aside, the album still fails to capture the energy of a Van Halen show. Missing are the spontaneous cheers of "Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!" and the overwhelming pounding in your head that you experience during Michael Anthony's chaotic bass solo.

Considering that this is Van Halen's only live album, I suppose I'll take what I can get, but I expected a little more. Especially from a double album.

This is a very decent VH album. I like the fact that you can hear Eddie's fills in his songs better than you can in studio versions. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected, but ultimately a little frustrating
The album is a fun listen if you're ready to rock in a not-too-serious fashion. The production is big, reverb-heavy arena rock style. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars even though im giving it five stars......
It's lacking the amazing quility that only David Lee Roth could bring to band, and although sammy is fairly good, i'd like to see a live album with DLR on it. Read more
