    Isolated Vocals-"Dance The Night Away"

    Not sure if this has been posted already, but it's awesome!
    You can really hear the harmonies. They kinda remind me of...Journey! Really, I can't think of any other "isolated tracks" that I've heard, that you can hear the harmonies so well.

    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    Okay, for the tenth attempt (nothing works on this board!)

    Dave sounds fucking awesome!

    Yes, he was a damn good vocalist, proof is right here.
    And, unlike Sammy, he had character & personality to his voice.
    No one sounds like vintage Roth!

    Christ, they harmonize like the Beach Boys!

    This is a hard rock band, and they harmonize like legends on their second album.
    The talent the original four had, is mind blowing.

    I conceded....
    Mike was pretty damn important, i just took him for granted.

    That was enjoyable to listen to. Incredible vocals. They had the perfect blend, that's why they are the greatest of all IMO.

    I used to have heavy arguments with my best friend back in the early 80's about why Van Halen was the top of the tops, and I do recall speaking to their vocals and catchy melodies as being one of the big reasons. He would always try to convince me that Judas Priest, Queen and AC/DC were better and I would get so PO'd. We laugh about it today.

    Haha, I know plenty of people that came to blows over VH. When I was growing up in a small suburban town, there were only a handful of VH fans in 1980, and we were adamant. By the time "1984" came out, everything had changed, and for the kids a couple years younger, it became like a gang. When the split came, I know people that didn't speak for years because some people had spoken poorly of Roth (not me. Really!).

    One of the things that I like about the backing vocals is that you can hear Roth in there too, and he sounds really cool.

    Their harmonies are downright beautiful. I wanna hear the "Feel Your Love Tonight" vocals isolated.

    It's laid bare, and he sounds perfect to me.

    Such a strong character. He was like an older kid who is having a party that you somehow ended up at, and he is showing you around, ready to help you get laid.

    He also wants you to call your older sister to come over to the party too...

    I'm not sure how many takes he did, but his vocals are dead perfect for the material.
    All the Roth-isms intact...
    Sounds like they put in the effort in the studio to get it exceptional.

    Those backing vocals are gorgeous, man.
    Would love to hear "In a simple rhyme" in this stripped down context.

    "Feel your love" is another good choice, because it really highlights the backing vocals.

    Definitely, makes you appreciate Dave and the background vocals, even more. Just another aspect that separates them from all others. Dave gets a bad rap, but it's clear from '78-84 he had a tremendous voice. Not too mention, just way cooler sounding than most, too.

    Yeah pretty cool stuff. Glad they put up the 4shared download link.

    Here's some more " ThisMusicSux " found online. I've never heard any of these ones before today.

    You get an even better appreciation for Alex and Mike on the " Hang Em High " separated track.

    GOLDMINE ALERT!

    Great find!
    I love dissecting these tracks, gonna listen over and over

    I swear I'm hearing Wurlitzer organ playing a ghost track under the bass on 'So This Is Love"?!


    You can hear the noise gate on the bass drums, and how it effects the groove of "Hang'em High"!
