Product Description

Product Description

Japanese pressing. Reissue of 1978 original release has been remastered and comes in a standard jewelcase. Warner. 2005.

Amazon.ca

At least half of the songs on Van Halen's eponymous 1978 debut are still considered classics, and the Eddie Van Halen instrumental "Eruption" revolutionised the guitar community by introducing a technique called finger-tapping into the heavy metal lexicon. A magnificent debut for sure, but maybe the band should have held onto a few of their blockbuster tunes to bolster the lean years that started after 1984, and continue to the present day. Regardless, Van Halen amply demonstrate their drive, showmanship, and musicianship throughout, blowing the needle off the scale on such tracks as "You Really Got Me", "Jamie's Cryin'", "Runnin' with the Devil", and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love". --Jon Wiederhorn

Eddie Van Halen almost single handedly saved rock fr. disco & schmatzy ballads of the late '70's by using flamenco guitar licks and other innovative techniques within a straight forward rock guitar band. This album is hard to locate on vinyl since it is such a party record, but if you want to settle for a fantastic LP on CD, please do-I bought mine for less than $10 on amazon.

I first heard this album in my first term at university. Blew my amplifier on Running with the Devil. Literally, I saw smoke coming out of the amp. I had borrowed some Corwin Vega speakers and pinned the vu meter needles. That was followed by smoke and dead silence. Unbelievable album. Many good memories brought back listening to this album of where I was, the friends I had, and that time of my life, a happier time in my younger days. Highly recommend this album for fans of music from the late 70's up to the mid 80's.

Van Halen has lots of great albums but this just takes the cake. I won't make this a biased opinion.

1.Runnin' With The Devil-Great vocals by a young David Lee Roth screech's and screams thats what it's all about. great opening riff,very catchy.10/10

2.Eruption-I love eruption, reminds me of the Power Rangers theme song.But to get to the review...great instrumental in fact it's in the top 3 greatest guitar solos ever...GOOD JOB EDDIE! 10/10

3.You Really Got Me-Great cover turns up the heat when it comes to the vocals and the guitar...awesome guitar solo. This song will make people who say the, original is always better,think twice.9/10

4.Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love-One of the many hits from this cd. Great and catchy riff and solo. Very addicting song,once again great vocals.9/10

5.I'm The One-Very heavy intro also catchy but lacks the vocal support that David usually gives out luckly Eddie's great guitaring makes it an above average song.7/10

6.Jamie's Cryin'-Love the guitar very raunchy goes very well with the song. personally very underrated song on this album.Great vocals.10/10

7.Atomic Punk-Great use of a phaser by Eddie, lyrically could be better but other than that vocals are wonderful.Personally one of my favs.9/10

8.Feel Your Love Tonight- Here come the lady's this song is very catchy great back-up vocals, good song to use when your girlfriend or wife says no for the 3 time that week. Listen to the song and you'll understand.10/10

9.Little Dreamer-Good song,good lyrics,good guitar,good drums,good bass just...good.8/10

10.Ice Cream Man- One of Eddie's Great Solos starts off alittle folky but makes up for it later on.good vocals.9/10

11.On Fire-Starts of with amazing guitar but is probably my least favorite on this album.Vocals could be better not really catchy...but again amazing guitar.7/10

When Gene Simmons spotted Van Halen back in the 1970s, he knew instantly they'd be a hit. With a party-hearty image, an over-the-top vocalist, one of the most energizing and crazy guitarist ever, and a rock solid rhythm section, he knew they'd turn out some solid rock and roll music. So naturally he wanted to sign them up as soon as possible. And that's just what Simmons did.

Turns out Simmons' gut instinct about Van Halen was right on the money. When VAN HALEN was released in 1978, it put these four young men on the musical map, and also rewrote the rules of heavy metal. The ultimate frat-boy band was boosted most by David Lee Roth, who was a genius at being one of the premier frontmen in all of rock. With vocals, squeals, screeches, and an amazing voice, he brought the performance of the band to an adrenaline-driven high, and was an essential part of their early sound. Hunter S. Thompson, with his gonzo-style journalism, became the embodiment of the over-the-top, wildly inventive rock journalist. Just as Thompson changed journalism and became a legend in his own right, Roth likewise took the role of lead singer and revolutionized it. One of the ultimate showmen in rock, Roth was pure genius as becoming a larger-than-life icon to so many rockers.

Of course, the real meat of the Van Halen legacy is, naturally, Eddie Van Halen's guitar. By introducing finger-tapping into the rock scene, Eddie showed what the guitar could really do. With spit-fire solos, that incredible little instrumental they tucked away on this album (Eruption), and some of the most amazing riffs ever to grace a rock and roll record, Eddie stepped into the long vacated shoes of Jimi Hendrix to be one of the most imitated, influential guitarists from the rock era.

Somebody told me back in '79 that I should get VH II. I was living in a town that didn't have anymore than a pop rock station. They played "Dance the Night Away" and that was it. I listened to II and thought there had to be a "I". Sure enough, I was right. It's got some great rock songs on it. "Atomic Punk" was a song I overlooked that is probably my favorite on VH I now. It's probably as good as any of VH's albums. Maybe not quite as refined but a groups first album never is. I was 23 at the time and could relate to some of the lyrics--"Got no love, no love you'd call real, ain't got nobody waiting at home". "Ain't Talkin''Bout Love" is a heavy, dark sounding rock sound that packs a hell of a punch. "Little Dreamer" I think is one of the best songs on VH I that doesn't seem to get much mention. One of my wishes has always been that Van Halen would have made an album with their version of old rock songs. I know they redid a few (You're No Good, You Really Got Me) but I kind of wish they'd done more. Here's some I wish they'd done the Van Halen way: Hungry-Paul Revere & the Raiders, I Had too Much to Dream Last Night-Electric Prunes, Talk Talk-The Music Machine, Dirty Water-The Standells. But that time has past. Looking back now,24 years later I'd have to say that Van Halen I is get down rock and roll just like I told you before..before..before..before..before
