An unreleased remix of the Van Halen classic, “Runnin’ With The Devil”, has surfaced online. “Van Halen Fans rejoice!,” writes YouTube host Groovefunkel Second Helping.
“As a huge Van Halen fan, it gives me great pleasure to share this remix which features an alternate ‘Diamond Dave’ vocal AND an extended guitar solo. Made from the original 24-track session masters.”
The audio stream follows a similar one of “Dance The Night Away” shared by the same user in 2017; the latest post launches Groovefunkel’s second YouTube channel, which will feature “alternate versions, instrumentals, stripped-down session mixes, demo recordings, and other rarities.”
The second single from Van Halen’s 1978 self-titled debut helped the project reach US Top 20 status while eventually selling more than 10 million copies in the country.
