2009 le Clos du Caillou Vieilles Vignes – Cotes du Rhone
Red Rhone Wine from the French Rhone Valley and “Women and Children First” by Van Halen!
Rock and Roll Royalty meet a Royal Rhone Valley Wine. Yes Indeed! Celebrating the triumphant return of a band that the universe has been missing for many years! Welcome back Diamond Dave and welcome back Van Halen! “A Different Kind of Truth” will be getting a pairing from us as soon as the vinyl copies are delivered!
“Women and Children First” This is the first Van Halen album to feature all original band compositions. The opening track, “And the Cradle Will Rock…”, begins with what sounds like a guitar, but is, in fact, a phase shifter-effected Wurlitzer electric piano played through Van Halen’s 1960’s model 100-watt Marshall Plexi amplifier.
In a Simple Rhyme we set sail for the Rhone Valley!
