Right Here

Live: Right Here, Right Now

Live: Right Here, Right Now is the first and only live album by American hard rock band Van Halen, released in 1993. The album combines songs performed over two nights in May 1992 at the Selland Arena in Fresno, CA. The bulk of the songs on this album were from the first night, such as the solos performed by Eddie Van Halen and Sammy Hagar. There is much debate as to whether or not the songs on this album have been doctored in the studio, as the original 1992 broadcast of these songs from Cabo Wabo, were much more raw and unmixed sounding, and actually sounded more true to the bands' live sound, than the actual album itself. A video on YouTube gives evidence that at least one track was recorded in a studio. Ironically, that track was Won't Get Fooled Again, however, the band would perform the song in similar fashion during the following Right Here Right Now tour and the claim that tracks were recorded in the studio has never been confirmed.

The album contained four David Lee Roth era songs (including Van Halen's arrangement of "You Really Got Me" by The Kinks), and two songs from Sammy Hagar's solo years. It also featured drum and bass solos and a cover of a song by The Who. As is the case with most tours, the band had been focusing on songs from the new album for the tour's duration. The current album, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge is very well represented, with ten of the twenty four songs originally featuring on that album.

Home Video

The footage was filmed with 15 cameras over two nights in May 1992 and mixed together, with the bulk of the footage and music coming from the second night. The DVD is single-sided but dual-layer format, running approximately 120 minutes long. The only non-musical items are optional subtitles or closed captioning (DVD) plus a brief clip of each performer (not in concert) talking about music in general. 15 of the songs here were part of the 27 recordings from the live double-CD album with the addition of two songs which weren't on the audio album: The Dream Is Over and Eagles Fly. The 15 songs from both the film and album are generally the same, but there are notable differences, particularly Eddie Van Halen's guitar playing and his solo "316", in which he makes several mistakes.

David Lee Roth era songs on the album

Sammy Hagar sang four David Lee Roth era Van Halen songs on the album, "Panama" and "Jump" from 1984, and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and "You Really Got Me" from Van Halen. You Really Got Me is stopped halfway through the song and goes directly into "Cabo Wabo", a Hagar-era song. You Really Got Me picks up again when Cabo Wabo is finished, thus making the two songs one track on the album.

Also, during the "316" track, Eddie breaks out in three instrumentals from the Roth-led years. Those three being "Cathedral" (from Diver Down,) Eruption (from Van Halen,) and the intro to Mean Street (from Fair Warning.)

The "Ultra Bass" track is Michael Anthony's bass solo, occasionally accompanied by Alex Van Halen's drums. During his solo, Anthony plays a portion of the Fair Warning track "Sunday Afternoon in the Park" which originally was a keyboard track performed by Edward.
