Van Halen is revisiting the Sammy Hagar years with a new box set.
The Collection II, dropping October 6, will feature newly remastered versions of the band’s four #1 albums with Hagar – 1986’s 5150, 1988’s OU812, 1991’s For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge and 1995’s Balance.
It will also include a fifth album, Studio Rarities 1989-2004, featuring eight non-album Hagar-era tracks, including “Crossing Over,” the B-side to the Balance tune “Can’t Stop Lovin’ You,” and their two songs from the Twister soundtrack: “Humans Being” and “Respect The Wind.”
“This stuff sounds so good,” Sammy shared on social media about the remastered set. “You know how long we’ve been waiting for this. I know you’re gonna enjoy it.”
The Collection II is the follow-up to Van Halen’s first box set, The Collection, which was released in 2015 and featured the band’s six studio albums with David Lee Roth. It will be released as a five-LP or five-CD set, both of which are available for preorder now.
