Album Review

Released on the struggling Beyond record label in 2000, Ten 13 wasn't exactly a well-publicized release. An impressive list of artists joined Sammy Hagar around the turn of the century at Beyond only to release hefty musical but commercially non-viable recordings. Hagar fared better than most due to his solid fan base — with which he managed to maintain a very close connection through touring, entertaining at his very popular bar and restaurant Cabo Wabo in Mexico, and by continuing to produce music generally true to his extremely popular '80s solo and Van Hagar material. After spending several post-Van Halen years creating a strange kind of populist party image for himself (something like a republican heavy metal Jimmy Buffet) Hagar delivered a fine offering that reinforced his eternally teenaged identity in Ten 13. Titled in honor of the singer's birthday, which is celebrated in historic proportion at Cabo Wabo each year, Ten 13 also features the "Waboritas" (Victor Johnson on guitar, Jesse Harms on keyboards, Mona on bass, and David Lauser on drums.) Highlights include the tight "Let Sally Drive," "A Little Bit More," and each of the wide open pop/rock cuts that fans of Van Hagar especially should get quite a large kick out of. Surprisingly even and strong, Ten 13 stands up with Hagar's best work of the '90s.

Great CD from 1-11... No weak songs

First off, let me say this. I have been a Sammy Fan ever since I heard on the radio "Why Can't This Be Love" back in March 1986. I was 15 at the time. Very impressionable. I was hooked! Fast forward 14 years later, and you have Sammy putting out a Post-VH CD that has songs that can certainly be mixed in with any Van Hagar era albums. With that said, this cd by Sammy and the Waboritas aka Wabos, can easily stand on it's own. Every song is very tight musically and it's most evident on some of the power rockers like "The Message" , "Deeper Kind of Love" and "Little Bit More." Sammy actually dwelled into some deeper/heavier sound on this cd as well with "Serious Juju" and "3 In the Middle" which was a nice change of pace in his career. Overall a very good CD. 4 stars for a better than average effort. This is a highly underated post-VH Sammy CD. Get it!

At Least Buy Tropic of Capricorn

Even if you aren't a hardcore Hagar fan, you should at least think about buying Tropic of Capricorn. It's an amazing song, and for whatever reason was left out of various post-2000 "Greatest Hits" collections, likely due to copyright issues with the original label. The rest of the album is great, although not all songs are going to impress you like the others.

One Of Sam's Best

I like 99% of the work Sammy's done since he left VH. That being said this is a great album that shows Sam still has it. The riffs are catchy so much so I learned some of the good ones. I still from time to time use some of those very riffs to warm up. If you are a "Red Head" it's a must have.
