Van Halen Collect Early David Lee Roth-Era Albums for Six-Disc Box Set

Van Halen Studio Albums
Warner Bros. / Rhino

While Van Halen have done quite well with ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ their first original album since reuniting with original frontman David Lee Roth, there’s still plenty of love for what the band did early on in their career. And those wishing to celebrate that period can do so with one impressive box set collection that’s coming to stores next month.

‘Van Halen: The Studio Albums 1978-1984′ is a six-disc collection that’s being released March 26 as a limited edition set. It covers the band’s early history from their 1978 self-titled debut through ’1984,’ their final album before Roth left the band to pursue a solo career. They subsequently recorded more albums with Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone as singers, before DLR rejoined the band for ‘A Different Kind of Truth.’

The albums included in the set are ‘Van Halen’ (1978), ‘Van Halen II’ (1979), ‘Women and Children First’ (1980), ‘Fair Warning’ (1981), ‘Diver Down’ (1982) and ’1984′ (1984).

The no-frills package features remastered versions of the original albums all packaged to fit within a clamshell box. You can currently order the limited edition ‘Van Halen: The Studio Albums 1978-1984′ box set through the Van Halen Store or via Amazon.
