Product Description


"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

2.0 out of 5 stars Almost a disgrace to Van Halen May 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD thinking all these great songs would be fun to listen to. I've listened to Van Halen on the radio for a couple decades now and I expected at least radio quality with a "background" of audience noise. But instead I got what sounds like a microphone being in the MIDDLE of the audience. The great Van Halen is drowned out by all the white noise of screams. I wish I never bought this and bought the original albums instead. In fact, that is my goal now, to replace it with the originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Live Feb. 12 2004
By E. Hall
Format:Audio CD
I will agree that one negative is the large number of tracks from the For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album. Being that this tour supported that album, it was bound to happen, especially since there were only 3 Hagar-era albums to that point.
However, I like the sound -- it makes me feel like I am there and not just an re-recorded studio album. The solos are typical of a Van Halen concert which again makes me feel like I am there. This album is good for those Hagar-era Van Halen fans or a Sammy fan that like live albums. It is meant for a select group, and it delivers to that group.
As an aside, I wish artists/record labels would stop doing albums in the soft CD-covers. Come on -- spring for some plastic already!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best VH Album Jan. 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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. What I don't like is that they used all Sammy Hagar songs and not DLR. They could've taken some poorer quality DLR songs and put him on there instead of having Sammy sing his songs. Overall, a good album to have if you're a VH fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why can't this be more? Jan. 6 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Ok, this is good overall, but I can't help pointing out the flaws. The sound could have been better, it's not terrible, but it's not great. The performances are fine, but that's not what you want on your only live album, you want awesome performances, awesome playing and singing. Also, 24 tracks is a bit much, and it includes too many tracks from the "F.U.C.K." album. This really could have been a sweet 16 track single cd. BUT, instead it's a decent double album. I would guess this is for fanatics mostly. Casual fans might want to stick with "Van Halen", "1984", "5150", or "The Best Of, Volume 1".

4.0 out of 5 stars good live album by one of the best bands EVER Oct. 15 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be so much better Sept. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
The mixing is terrible (the cymbals are way too high, and the only time Eddie's guitar is clear is "316"), the tracklist is so biased it's not even funny (these guys had a singer called David Lee Roth??), but at least the performances are tight, if unremarkable. The guitar solos are really fleshed out and fired up by Eddie, but once again, the mixing renders them too quiet. The bass and drum solos are masturbatory and unnecessary, and the 10 out of 11 songs from "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" would have been better served to showcase some classics from the DLR era. A quaint reminder of Van Halen's live skills, but how about some more DLR songs? Or better yet, a classic live album from that era?

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.

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
