First Six Van Halen Albums Getting High-Def Reissues The first six Van Halen albums are getting high-definition reissues on vinyl and Super Audio CD. The reissues will be handled by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, using vinyl cut straight from the original stamp to recreate the ‘true’ sound of the original masters. The first reissue, for the band’s 1978 self-titled debut, will be out in late 2022 – with the rest to follow in chronological order. Are there any rock albums that you re-buy every time there’s a new special edition? What’s the all-time best Van Halen record?
