David Lee Roth (1994) Night Life / Jump (Live) EU 7″
Since the departure of David Lee Roth from Van Halen in 1985, the argument has raged on… who’s the better frontman? Dave or Sammy? Well, you can put me firmly in the Dave camp. Not that I dislike Sammy but, to me, Van Halen was just not the same without Dave out front. During his time away from Van Halen, David Lee Roth released a highly successful EP and six albums. The single “Night Life” comes from ‘Your Filthy Little Mouth’, the fourth of those six albums. The song was written by Willie Nelson and released as a single in 1960 with the title “Nite Life”. The song has been covered over the years by numerous artists like Ray Price, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, B.B. King, Dottie West and Aretha Franklin. David Lee Roth’s version was produced by Nile Rodgers and released as a single in Europe with a live version of Van Halen’s 1984 #1 hit “Jump” as the b-side.
