  • Finally, forgotten hits (“Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy”) and several soundtrack gems (i.e. “The Girl Gets Around” from Footloose) included on a Best of Sammy CD. This 20-track single disc takes you chronilogically thru Sammy’s career from Montrose (“Bad Motor Scooter”) to the present day (“Mas Tequila.”) As others have pointed out, there is no Van Halen here. That’s OK, I think the emphasis here is clearly on Sammy’s solo work. There is a new 2-disc, remastered, best of VH package in stores now. Go get that: I did. For his solo work, this is your ticket. Remastering is great. Sound quality excellent. My only complaint is I wish it would have featured one HSAS track. (Don’t know what HSAS is? Search “Through The Fire” for the best band you’ve never heard of.)
