Album Notes and Credits
Van Halen: David Lee Roth (vocals); Eddie Van Halen (guitar); Michael Anthony (bass); Alex Van Halen (drums).
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Also available with "Fair Warning" on 1 cassette.
WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST reached #6 in April 1980 and shows a band progressing towards their eventual peak. "And The Cradle Will Rock" is one of the album's two radio staples, along with "Everybody Wants Some." These two anthems set the stage for one hell of a rock & roll party album.
"Fools," a relatively obscure VH tune, features thumping rhythm, the piercing background vocals of bassist Michael Anthony and some David Lee Roth scatting at the end. Roth declares "I'm takin' whiskey to the party tonight and I'm lookin' for somebody to squeeze" in "Romeo Delight." Preferring sneaky licks and heavy riffs, Eddie Van Halen does fit some excellent acoustic work into "Could This Be Magic" and "In A Simple Rhyme." WACF shows a hungry, talented rock band delivering the goods. Longtime producer Ted Templeman helps the band achieve their signature sound, producing a fantastic album.
