VAN HALEN - FIRST SIX ALBUMS TO BE RELEASED AS LIMITED EDITION HIGH FIDELITY DOUBLE VINYL BOX SETS
According to Classic Rock, renowned high-fidelity audiophile brand Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab is gearing up to release limited edition box sets of the first six Van Halen albums, from 1978's self-titled debut to the final album of the Dave Lee Roth era, 1984.
The reissues are each available in two formats: as UltraDisc One-step 45rpm double vinyl box and in SACD (Super Audio CD) format, which Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs promise will result in the band's albums sounding "more vivid, present, and entertaining than ever."
Ultradisc One-Step is a process that results in higher quality lacquers, accordin to what Classic Rock was told.
Each vinyl set will be housed in a deluxe box, with each album wrapped in a foil-stamped jackets, while the SACD discs feature mini-gatefold sleeves. Both will be remastered using the original analogue tapes. Van Halen will arrive first – in the fourth quarter of 2022 – and be followed by Van Halen II, Women And Children First, Fair Warning, Diver Down and 1984.
Jim Davis, president of Music Direct and Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, comments:
"Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab is excited to release Van Halen's first six iconic albums in the UD1S and SACD formats for the first time. Fans will experience Van Halen’s original blend of raw power and Hollywood flair like never before through these limited-edition, audiophile-grade One-Step vinyl box sets."
