Product Description

Product Description

It will forever remain a mystery why the mighty original Van Halen line-up never released a live recording, especially because they were one of the better live hard rock bands to hit the stage. The first official live Van Halen recording was the 1993 two-CD set, LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, which collected 24 tracks from various tours with singer Sammy Hagar (spanning 1986-92). David Lee Roth-era songs are kept to abare minimum, and almost the entire FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE featured. Such later-Van Halen favourites as "Poundcake", "Why Can't This Be Love", "Right Now", "When It's Love", and "Best of Both Worlds" are featured. Also included is acover of the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again", Hagar's solo composition "One Way to Rock", and the Roth-standards "Panama", "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love", "You Really Got Me", and "Jump".

"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

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.

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.

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.

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.
