3.0 out of 5 stars Good collection but some essentials tracks were missed, February 20, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Best of Van Halen, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
I have to say that there are some terrific songs on this album and it makes for a great introduction to the two major eras of Van Halen. Some of my all time favorite VH songs are on here, like "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love", "Dance The Night Away", "Unchained", "Panama", "Why Can't This Be Love", "When It's Love" and "Poundcake". I also love "Runnin' With The Devil" but my cd has the [messed] up version that accidently made it onto early presses of this cd. The two new Roth songs are okay but they just don't stand a chance when compared to their earlier output with Roth.
I agree with just about all the other reviewers that there were some essential tracks that were left off. This collection just isn't complete without such gems as "You Really Got Me", "Jamie's Cryin'", "Beautiful Girls", "Hot For Teacher", "Finish What Ya Started", "Best Of Both Worlds" and "Runaround". A career spanning 2-disk anthology set or even a box set would be in order now that the band seems to be on hold permanently.
