Van Halen: Live, Right Here, Right Now (1993)

van halen live right here right nowBy Scott Goldfine

Veteran hard rock quartet Van Halen has released its first live collection, the two-CD set “Live, Right Here, Right Now.” Leaning heavily on its past three albums, the band includes a mere handful of its pre-Sammy Hagar material. That’s unfortunate because much of their rougher, more satisfying work is excluded.

Luckily, Eddie Van Halen’s guitar sorcery is evident throughout.
