Women and Children First (Remastered) (1LP)
Originally released in 1980, Women and Children First is the third studio album by American hard rock band Van Halen.
Produced by Ted Templeman, Women and Children First was the first to feature compositions written solely by the band. There's little doubt that it's a strong album, but it's also an album that stands slightly apart from their first two efforts, offering more in the way of overdubs and less in the way of backing vocals.
From a chart standpoint, Women and Children First matched its predecessor in the U.S., hitting #6 on the Billboard Top 200, while its UK performance was actually the best of the band's career up to that point, giving them their first top-20 album, and there are some who hold the record aloft as being as strong as their self-titled debut. The album has since gone on to be certified 3x Platinum in the Unted States in recognition of sales of over 3 million records.
