UPDATE: “The Studio Albums 1978-1984” NOT to be released in the U.S.

UPDATE 2/11/13: Last week, we announced that Warner Bros/Rhino were releasing ‘Van Halen: The Studio Albums 1978-1984’ on March 26th, 2013.

This was to be a Limited Edition 6CD Set documents the band’s indelible history from their self-titled 1978 debut until the ‘1984’ album. What we reported was true at the time… it was to be released in the U.S. on 3/26/13 with a list price of $39.98.

However, Warner Bros/Rhino has just informed us that THIS ITEM WILL NOT BE RELEASED IN THE U.S. 

Note: If you are looking to buy all six Van Halen CDs with David Lee Roth from the 70’s and 80’s, we suggest buying the Van Halen Dave-Era 6-CD Package Deal from Van Halen Store. It’s simply a way to save money when you buy all six of those CDs at once. All six come in their separate jewel cases and have been remastered, so they sound superior to the original CDs, and the packaging contains ALL the original artwork that was contained in the 12″ vinyl releases (unlike the original CDs).
