Van Halen to Reissue Two Classic Albums and Release New Live Album

By , Columnist

When Van Halen arrived on the scene back in the '70s, they brought along with them an exciting new guitarist in Eddie Van Halen, as well as a satisfying stage show. With the release of their incredible debut album, Van Halen climbed to great heights, awarding these Pasadena kids a life-altering career. As the David Lee Roth era neared its end, the band released 1984, an album that featured four hit singles ("Jump," "I'll Wait," "Panama," "Hot for Teacher") and enjoyed phenomenal sales throughout the world.

On March 30 (UK) and March 31 (US) Rhino Records will reissue both Van Halen and 1984 in newly remastered editions. Along with the CD reissues, there will be LP versions available as well.
