Van Halen Expanded Edition of For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge Listening Party 7/12 at 5:30 pm

Originally released in June 1991, FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE was an immediate success. It reached triple platinum certification and earned Van Halen its first Grammy® Award for Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Album. Producer and engineer Bernie Grundman expertly remastered and cut lacquers for this edition, ensuring pristine sound quality.

THE EXPANDED EDITION that comes out Friday, 7/12, includes previously unreleased alternate versions of “Right Now” and “The Dream Is Over.” The main attraction, however, has to be the previously unreleased concert footage from Van Halen’s December 4, 1991, performance in Dallas. Captured during the “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge Tour,” this electrifying show is a powerful example of Van Halen’s unparalleled stage presence.

The show’s setlist mixes new songs (“Judgement Day” and “Poundcake”) with songs from 5150 and OU812 (“Best Of Both Worlds” and “Finish What Ya Started”). The band also played “Panama,” a hit from its time with singer David Lee Roth, plus two of Hagar’s hits, “I Can’t Drive 55” and “There’s Only One Way To Rock.”

In addition, the Blu-ray includes the official music videos for “Poundcake,” “Runaround,” “Right Now,” and “Top Of The World.”  Finally, the remastered album is included in the set as a double LP, featuring an etching of the Van Halen logo on the fourth side.


Join us for a special release day listening party where we will play the LP and give away free posters. We’ll also have some cool Van Halen swag to give out and we are giving away one of these beautiful Expanded edition box sets to a lucky winner!
