Hello guys, This was my first colored vinyl in my collection. I liked the disc and their music is really good as well. I know a little about the record, and am really glad that I bought it way back when. By the way, I hope that you don't mind, but I borrowed a stock copy of the disc, so I can show what I have. Can you tell me a little bit about the red vinyl. I am sure that we have some real experts here. Thanks loads.

Hey hot_shot,

This is a break-down of Van Halen's EP on Warner Bros. records. The value on this disc is all over the place. Depending on the condition of the disc and whether it is still sealed, it can demand anywhere from $30.00 to $150.00(USD).

1. Running With The Devil - Edward Van Halen - Alex Van Halen - Michael Anthony - David Lee Roth - 3:36
2. Eruption - Edward Van Halen - Alex Van Halen - Michael Anthony - David Lee Roth - 1:42
3. Ice Cream Man - John Brim - 3:20
4. You Really Got Me - Ray Davies - 2:38
5. Jamie's Cryin' - Edward Van Halen - Alex Van Halen - Michael Anthony - David Lee Roth - 3:31

These are segments of Van Halen's, self titled, first release on Warner Bros. Records. Released in 1978, this extended play(EP) contained 5 tracks and was pressed on red vinyl. It was commonly referred to as the "Looney Tunes" album because of the printed text on one side of the disc which read, Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, along with a image of Elmer Fudd, dressed in a police uniform.

Released as a promotional copy, this disc was distributed to radio station disc jockeys and music directors. It contains the words, "Not For Sale" and contains the catalog number of PRO 705.
