“This is Sammy Hagar Vol. 1 – When The Party Started,” a new compilation album showcasing 14 highlights from Sammy Hagar’s catalogue of hits will be released this Friday, November 18 via Mailboat Records. The collection, which starts from his solo album post Van Halen, “Red Voodoo” in 1999 through to “Livin’ It Up” in 2006, also includes a new remix of “Sam I Am,” which will be the new theme song for season 2 of his acclaimed TV show, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Road Trip,” as well as two new Hagar-penned tracks, “No Worries” and “I Never Got To Say Goodbye.” The collection, released in time for the holidays, offers fans of the multi-platinum recording artist, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy® winning singer and songwriter an introspective and always entertaining playlist which has been personally curated by The Red Rocker.
“With this collection, I wanted to revisit the music which would come to redefine my career post Van Halen,” explained Hagar. “It was the first time since I’d joined Montrose in 1972 that I was free from the weight of being in a superstar, high-pressure band and the commercial machine that came with it. I was in a place of experimentation and discovery and that’s when the party started again for me.”
