Album 365: Day 88 - Van Halen - Van Halen

Van Halen
Van Halen

Favorite tracks: Ain't Talkin 'bout Love, I'm the One, Atomic Punk
Sleeper tracks: Little Dreamer, Ice Cream Man

I'm guessing every American has heard at least one song from this album.

I think the first time I heard this was on 8 track.  Those things were awesome except for the fade out and fade in during the middle section of a song.

It's a great album.  As I wrote before, Van Halen II was my first experience with the band and I hold that record in a higher regard than this one.  Still, you can't deny the power this album has...and it was a debut release.

2 of the tracks made it into setlists of various bands I played with as a kid.
