Sammy Hagar has released an acoustic live performance video for “No Worries”, a track from his latest compilation, “This Is Sammy Hagar: When The Party Started, Vol 1.”
The song joins “Never Said Goodbye” as one of two new tunes on the 14-song set, which mixes material from Hagar’s four albums with The Waboritas, from 1999’s “Red Voodoo” to 2006’s “Livin’ It Up.”
“This CD is a collection of what I feel are the best songs I wrote post Van Halen that mostly didn't get a lot of mainstream attention,” says Hagar. “When I left Van Halen, I formed the Wabos as an alternative to the superstar big-time, high-maintenance commercial world I had been living in since I joined Montrose in 1972.
“With the Wabos; Jesse Harms, David Lauser, Vic Johnson, Mona and myself, we locked ourselves in my basement studio. We rehearsed and recorded anything and everything I wrote. Along with Bob Daspit, and a few other engineer-friendly people, we produced and engineered ourselves on a new technical recording device called Pro Tools.”
“This Is Sammy Hagar" also includes an alternate mix of “Shag” and a new mix of the lead single, “Sam I Am.”
Hagar’s most recent release is 2014’s “Lite Roast”; the project with Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson sees the pair deliver stripped-down versions of tunes from the Red Rocker’s career.
