    NO KIDDING!!!!

    They just released a deluxe edition of Aerosmith's "Rocks" album, which had me drooling, but....
    IT WAS ONLY FOR THE JAPANESE MARKET.

    They always get extra tracks tacked on to every new release or a bonus disc.
    I hope VH does what Rhianna did, and also releases a deluxe version along with the regular one.

    In a cruel twist, the bonus DVD happens to be all of Oakland, 1981.
    Sorry, region coded for Japan only! LOL.

    If it has different stuff on there, I'm going to smuggle that shit in.

    Hell yeah, if the deluxe has something awesome on it, I'll pay for it. VH would be the only band I'd do so.

    Maybe the DVD is either the making of the album or a show from the last tour? Weren't they supposed to do that?
    Ready, Eddie!

    I gotta get my hands on that DVD. I hope they release a deluxe package in the US. I plan on getting every version of this album I can get my hands on.

    Maybe the Van Halen Store will have it. They get stuff like that sometimes, it will prolly cost ya about 50 clams, but hey it's only money.

    Let's no get ahead of ourselves here... There is nothing on Interscope's site that even mentions VH.. Notice there's not a link in the article either. Just sayin...

    cdjapan.com usually has those releases (as you'd expect)

    a little research on google tells me this happens because "it's because it is invariably cheaper for Japanese buyers to import CDs rather than purchase them in their local record store. The extra tracks are there to provide an incentive for buying the domestic version. Without the extra tracks, Japanese retailers are reluctant to sell the CDs knowing that a large portion of the potential purchasers will simply be importing the product."

    and the same goes for parts of europe.
