As most music fans know by now, Van Halen played at the Cafe Wha? last night to get things going in anticipation of their upcoming album, A Different Kind of Truth. I spotted a picture of the setlist on Twitter and my eyes were drawn to a tune called “She’s the Woman.”
Hmmm, I thought to myself, that name sounds familiar. And sure enough, it’s actually a song that pre-dates the group’s debut LP and has circulated in demo form among VH fans for years. Here’s what it sounded like circa 1976:
VH fans will doubtless recognize the main riff and bridge here, which was used in the all-time classic track “Mean Street.” I haven’t heard a clip from the 2012 version, so I can’t say how much of the original is intact. I have to imagine that Eddie wouldn’t quite so lazy as to duplicate the song note-for-note, but then again Eddie’s never been very predictable, has he?
