"Marching to Mars" is Sammy Hagar's first post-Van Halen solo album. It is his tenth solo studio album. It features various musicians on different songs. It was released on MCA Records, which had by that point acquired his former label, Geffen Records. "Little White Lie" was a major mainstream rock hit, topping the mainstream rock tracks chart for five weeks.
Boasting no-frills production and brash hard rock ideals, the Red Rocker's third post-Van Halen release is everything Sammy Hagar fans could hope for. Opting for an indie label release, NOT 4 SALE makes no attempt to be trendy or contemporary. Possibly not since Ronnie James Dio's glory days has a rock singer rallied for us to "stand up and shout" as Sammy directs in the album's instantly anthemic opener, "Stand Up." Be it with rocked-up John Mellencamp grooves ("Things Have Changed") or a cleverly arranged Led Zeppelin medley ("Whole Lotta Zep"), the Waboritas have come into their own as a formidable band. The passion and spirit of many different facets of Sammy's career (his Van Halen years included) show up on NOT 4 SALE.
"Live 1980" is a Sammy Hagar live album recorded during the tour promoting his then-newest album, Danger Zone. The album mainly contains tracks from Danger Zone and its predecessor, Street Machine. It was released by Capitol Records after the success of Hagar's Geffen-era releases, Standing Hampton and Three Lock Box. The 1996 One Way Records re-release includes a bonus live track, "Someone Out There", which has not been released elsewhere.
Digitally remastered edition of this 1979 solo album from the former Montrose and future Van Halen vocalist and Rock icon. Street Machine was completely controlled by Hagar in the songwriting and production areas, with his eyes firmly focused on the Hard Rock prize. Packed with knockout punches, the album showcases one of the worlds greatest showmen, whose voice and songwriting ability are captured in pristine clarity.
The red rocker returns with a 17 track collection of live greatest hits that spans his entire career! From his work with the seminal band Montrose, through his days with the mighty Van Halen and his work as a platinum selling solo artist, Hallelujah is a must have for any fan of Sammy Hagar and good ole' rock and roll! The CD also includes some very special, once in a lifetime performances with ex Van Halen singer Gary Cherone who joins Sammy for "when its love" and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony who lends his signature bass talents and backup vocals to "Right Now."
