It’s been a heck of a week for newly unearthed Van Halen vids – see the unseen-for-40-years clip of the boys performing the Fair Warning track So This is Love? in Italy’s Rivolta D’Adda “Prehistoric Park,” surrounded by fake dinosaurs, for starters.

Now the Van Halen Brasil YouTube page has given us more VH gold, with footage of Eddie Van Halen playing the electric guitar riffs to the song Amsterdam at 5150 Studios. The catch? The clip hails from the mid 1980s, years before the tune saw release on Van Halen’s final album with Sammy Hagar, 1995’s Balance.
