    Shine On You Crazy Diamond - My DLR Rarities Collection

    I'm sure everyone on here has these songs already, but I've put them all together in a nifty little collection, with individual artwork and info about each track. If this post is breaking any forum rules (I'm too lazy to read), shut 'er down. I'm gonna post this on a couple Roth forums too.

    I was inspired to put this together by the last Roth Show podcast, with that killer acoustic blues number "Ain't No Christmas". This is by no means a definitive collection of rarities, but the best of what I could find, in the highest quality possible. If you have a higher quality copy of any of the mp3s included here, feel free to shoot me a PM and I will update the compilation.

    Here is the info txt included:

    David Lee Roth
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond
    Rare & Unreleased Collection
    2016

    1. Angel Eyes

    Quality: lossless
    Info: This unreleased original song was written by David Lee Roth and was believed to be recorded in both 1973 at Cherokee Studios in Chatsworth, CA, and again in 1975 at an unknown location. There is no known public performance of this song, but it was played once backstage for some friends in the band's club days of the mid-1970s. Although they had originally planned to include it on Van Halen II, the band decided against doing so because it was too different from the other songs being recorded for that album.
