Editorial Reviews

David Lee Roth went back to his Warner Bros. recordings and personally selected and sequenced the songs and videos for this special Hits collection. The CD not only includes the entire Crazy From The Heat e.p. but includes classics like Yankee Rose, Just Like Paradise, Goin' Crazy! and I'm Easy. The DVD also brings you the entire DAVE TV Warner Home Video release for the very first time on DVD format as well as more rare videos from his Warner and Reprise albums. This newly mastered CD/DVD package features new artwork, photos and song lyrics!

Horrible video quality...it appears as if this is merely a VHS to DVD copy. I love this music and these songs, but I have not seen these videos since I was a kid. I always were fond of the memories, but going back over 25 years then viewing this for the first time since that...well, it's bad. Unwatchable. Again, I LOVE the music, but the videos are just BAD.

Any true Roth fan owns this music anyway, so if you're bying this just for the videos (like I did), then don't bother. Realize that it's now 2013, and there's a great Van Halen album with Roth on it that came out only a year ago...enjoy THAT, rather than this re-hashed/repackaged low-quality garbage.

The music we know and love. I think he really, REALLY needs a 2-CD compilation someday with demos (primarily the Skyscraper ones that Sheehan raved about) and such. But here's a bullet list of what it would take to make this Single disc compilation a 5-star release:

1. Volume level. The volume on this release is noticeably louder than the original 80's discs, and noticeably softer than 1997's THE BEST. So that means you now have 3 different volumes to adjust if you make a playlist. Regardless of what you think of the loudness wars, it would be nice for this to have had the same volume as THE BEST, at least for consistency's sake.

2. "Damn Good". Most compilations get critiqued on song selection, but I think most DLR fans would agree that Damn Good should have been included on this. It was a big hit for him in '88/'89 and it wasn't on THE BEST.

3. Running time. There is only 58 minutes on this CD. I don't have a problem with him using 4 songs from YOUR FILTHY LITTLE MOUTH, but then at least fill up the disc with more songs from EAT EM AND SMILE and SKYSCRAPER.

4. The videos. As other have stated, this compilation is missing Just Like Paradise and Stand Up. In addition, the videos that were included were clearly not restored in any way. The images look like they came from the best possible VHS copy they could find. I don't mind them being in 4:3 since that is probably what they were shot in. I certainly wouldn't want them to crop them just to widen to 16:9.

I questioned the song selection and running order when I first looked at the track listing. But after listening to this greatest hits compilation, I must say, the running order is brilliant Seems to be really well thought out and blends together seamlessly.. With a relatively short total time, it could have easily had some more songs.

The sound on this compilation is really quite good. Little to no loudness problems, like with the other Friday Music releases. I little flat and lifeless but no brick walling.

The DVD is not good. To see Dave TV on DVD is awesome and I was so happy to watch it again after all these years. But the quality is terrible. Is this really the best they could do? I could have transferred my VHS copy to DVD and would have gotten the same effect. The other videos are cool, especially the ones that are released here for the first time. The missing videos are a real disappointment!!!

The packaging and artwork are really lame. The pictures are all current, from The Roth Show podcast. If you are doing a career retrospective, don't you want to represent the entire career? Cheap paper, cheap ink and just not well done at all. This mirrors Friday Musics effort with their re-releases of the other Roth albums.

All-in-all, it is a great compilation with a really excellent running order but is missing some key tracks. The video quality is very poor and is also missing some key moments. But, having Dave TV on DVD is still pretty cool.

The artwork is quite poor and very disappointing.

I would recommend this title for the casual fan looking for a decent compilation of David Lee Roth although I would recommend they purchase "The Best" instead. For the serious fan, it is a take it or leave it, thrown together money grab. For the completest, like me, it is a necessity.

Big DLR fan. Packaging is dark and generic. Could have used some original artwork/liner notes. song/video selection puzzling. Missing some great songs and videos. Crazy from the heat video is very poor quality. My original VHS still is a better quality product. I would have paid $50 to $100 for a "deluxe/extensive" box set of Dave's solo work. This collection is not a "slam dunk"

Anyone got any ideas how this was created. I've seen on the web that Dave has had some input in song selection, but there's a few gaping holes - stand up, damn goos, it's showtime, drop in the bucket to highlight a few. Video quality is poor. Worse still are the video omissions, particularly Just Like Paradise which Dave himself trumpets as being groundbreaking. No idea why this is not included. Finally the packaging, which is drab and lacking commentary or insight. Again Dave criticised the Van Halen compilation packaging, but this appears in much the same vein.

Could have been a real celebration and taken the spirit of hitting the stage witha flamethrower as Dave liked to style himself. Instead a rather grey, damp squib.

Should have been so much better.

No "Damn Good"
I agree. That was an excellent song and a big hit from an otherwise spotty Skyscraper album. It wasn't on the 1997's The Best collection either, so you are probably right about there being some baggage.
