THE COLLECTION II is a 5-CD Box Set spotlighting Van Halen’s second incarnation, with singer Sammy Hagar, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony. (Also available as a 180-Gram Vinyl 5-LP Box Set).

The set includes newly remastered versions of four multi-platinum studio albums, along with a selection of rarities recorded between 1989 and 2004. All the music in the set was mastered directly from the original master tapes by Bernie Grundman, and by the band’s longtime engineer, Donn Landee.

THE COLLECTION II covers the four consecutive #1 albums released during Van Halen's Sammy Hagar era: 5150 (1986), OU812 (1988), FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE (1991), and BALANCE (1995).

The 5th CD is 'STUDIO RARITIES 1989-2004', an exclusive compilation that assembles eight gems from the Hagar era for the first time.

GRATEFUL TO ADD IT TO MY COLLECTION

The music of my youth has never sounded better. I am grateful to complete my VH remasters with "the other half". It was great to hear OU812 with some bottom end. I took the whole collection for a looooong drive so that I could savor the experience. My only suggestions would have been: - to include "actual rarities" and unreleased songs such as "Between Us Two" and "The Wish". The rarities songs are already owned by most VH fans, so it was a rarities disk in name only. - the CD labels are pretty bland. They look like something I would have printed off back in the day. The artwork on each album would have provided ample visuals to work with to create something interesting. - it would have been cool to have a booklet with previously unseen pictures, stories, etc. Despite these suggestions, I am SO grateful to be able to listen to these fresh mixes. Now...give me some rings-era merch to buy...I'll take one of each!
