3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Selection...but could be improved 28 Dec 2004
This is a good selection of Van Halen's music videos but I would have liked to see more stuff prior to '1984' here. Remember a DVD can contain loads of video, so why not fill it up with every music video they did? Don't get me wrong, all the gems are here ;'Jump','Panama','Hot For Teacher', 'Poundcake', 'Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)', but where is 'Jamie's Cryin','You Really Got Me', 'Pretty Woman', 'Feels So Good', 'Top Of The World', 'Amsterdam' (this may have been cut because of the drug related lyrics) and 'Fire In The Hole'? If my knowledge serves me correctly then including these would complete the collection. Surely it wouldn't have been too difficult to have included them?
Overall, a good collection, but more could have been included!

4.0 out of 5 stars So Close.... 15 Jan 2002
A pretty Good collection - which it should be noted are collected here by video merit as opposed to song merit (there is nothing that predates 1984 here). However, there is a progressive line and you can visibly see the band mellow and grow up, as their dress sense improves, their horsing around on stage calms down and even in the "Balance" days when they sport new short haircuts. The last two tracks Im not a fan of, Humans Being is a real change in style and Gary Cherone being allowed to join was never going to work. But other than that, no complaints at all, guitar genius at his very best

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Halen video hits Vol. 1 DVD 1996-- 26 Jun 2011
Excellent DVD of one of my all time favourite rock bands. Good quality pictures, not fuzzy or blurred. Good sound quality. I would have liked to have seen Dave performing on this DVD "You got me going" and "The cradle will rock" but I guess they are on another DVD. The DVD arrived quickly and was packed well. Thanks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not DTS, Not even a good picture 10 May 2000
By Raymond Roy - Published on
I have learned a big lesson through the purchase of this video, some groups will show their fans respect and give them DTS with high quality video. Not the case here. This is simply a VHS version recorded to DVD. Not to brag but I could have done this in my basement and produced better quality. If you do not believe me, purchase this DVD then purchase the The Eagles - Hell Freezes Over. I guarantee you will want you money back.

4.0 out of 5 stars very entertaining 1 Nov 2004
By Alejandra Vernon - Published on
These are excellent videos, well produced and filmed, and Van Halen is in top form on all of them. The first three are from the David Lee Roth era, who was lead singer back when brothers Eddie and Alex Van Halen started the group in the late '70s, along with Michael Anthony on bass. David is part acrobat/clown, part Vegas glitzy showman, and very entertaining with his athletic, campy humor; he's also a good vocalist for that type of material, backed by the solid musicianship of the group, and the guitar wizardry of Eddie.

Enter Sammy Hagar, replacing David in 1985, and giving the group a different style, with some of the material leaning towards serious subjects, stronger vocals ("When it's Love" is superb), and though it doesn't have the fun of the David era, it's equally lively. "Dreams" has the footage from the Whiskey-a-Go-Go, and the final song, "Humans Being", is also the last that Sammy recorded with the group, and it is part of the soundtrack for the hit movie "Twister".

Total running time is 1 hour.

Song list:



"Hot for Teacher"

"When it's Love"

"Finish What Ya Started"


"Right Now"


"Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)"

"Can't Stop Lovin' You"

"Not Enough"

"Humans Being"

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Enough... 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
The disc kicks off with the old film lead that started "Jump" and keeps on rolling through the final icy scenes of "Without You." Every video is just like you remember, except for a new version of "Dreams" (featuring the 1993 suprise show at The Whiskey in Hollywood to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the VAN HALEN release).
The only knocks are: not enough Diamond Dave (the 1984 videos "Jump", "Panama" and "Hot For Teacher" are the only DLR on the disc); and no filler material (one video follows the next with no out-takes, behind-the-scenes shots or interviews).
On the plus side, the DVD version includes the only video featuring just-departed Gary Cherone. And like any DVD, the picture and sound blow away the VHS version of this release.
Well worth the discounted Amazon price, VIDEO HITS VOLUME I is a great addition to any Van Halen fan's collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sky's the limit... well so is this DVD 16 Dec 2005
By Kurt A. Birkeland - Published on
OK, we all love the video's that Van Halen has pumped out thru the years and yes I did purchase this DVD, but this is missing some key elements. Did you know Ive seen videos/live clips for "Hear about it Later", "Unchained", "If this is Love", "Runnin With the Devil" "Eruption/You Really Got Me", "Jaimies Cryin", "Pretty Woman", "Im the One" and others just from MTV alone. I'm confused with the Van Halen archives. It seems that Warner Bro's is waiting until were all deceised until they release a good DLR erra DVD compilation or live show. Believe me, the bootlegged "Us Festival" I have is good, but I'm tired of dealing with dealers online and at record swaps for a taste of something that should be legally released from the industry pigs. Is there an answer in sight?

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreams 31 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I was overall very impressed with the DVD, I am a big fan of the videos that first started MTV and would really like to see more. However my favorite video is "Dreams" with the Blue Angels and this is not on this DVD, there is a live coverage of them in downtown L.A with news coverage of the riot. It's not all bad just disappointed. So if you are looking for the same video I am this is not it!!!!
