Top Customer Reviews
Enter Sammy Hagar, replacing David in 1985, and giving the group a different style, with some of the material leaning towards serious subjects, stronger vocals ("When it's Love" is superb), and though it doesn't have the fun of the David era, it's equally lively. "Dreams" has the footage from the Whiskey-a-Go-Go, and the final song, "Humans Being", is also the last that Sammy recorded with the group, and it is part of the soundtrack for the hit movie "Twister".
Total running time is 1 hour.
"Hot for Teacher"
"When it's Love"
"Finish What Ya Started"
"Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)"
"Can't Stop Lovin' You"
The only knocks are: not enough Diamond Dave (the 1984 videos "Jump", "Panama" and "Hot For Teacher" are the only DLR on the disc); and no filler material (one video follows the next with no out-takes, behind-the-scenes shots or interviews).
On the plus side, the DVD version includes the only video featuring just-departed Gary Cherone. And like any DVD, the picture and sound blow away the VHS version of this release.
Well worth the discounted Amazon price, VIDEO HITS VOLUME I is a great addition to any Van Halen fan's collection.
This DVD,while it could have been a little better(I'll cover why that is later on in my review of this)is pretty good. The videos here are in chronological order,so that is a good thing,and the DVD opens with Van Halen's music video for JUMP that they filmed back with David Lee Roth in 1984--a really good way to open a DVD that has Van Halen music videos on it,because it is a really cool video. Up next is the music video for PANAMA,which shows Van Halen performing the song before a crowd of people with the original studio music for that song in the background,among a bunch of other cool things in it--another great video and another winner for this DVD. Then their is the video for HOT FOR TEACHER,which is hillarious,sassy,cool,and one of the funniest music videos I have ever seen.
Then,exit--David Lee Roth.Enter--Sammy Hagar.After this DVD gives you three Van Halen videos with David Lee Roth,the remainder of the music videos on here are Van Halen/Sammy Hagar videos,and the last video is the music video for WITHOUT YOU,which was shot with Gary Cherone,who became the lead singer for VH after Hagar quit the group--that was a really bad video and a really bad song(as far as my opinion goes at least,that song was the only hit Van Halen had when Gary Cherone was at the mic)but the rest of the videos here are really cool in their own ways.Read more ›
