(Classic Rock) A stream of Van Halen performing Big Fat Money in the studio has been released. The instrumental performance was captured during the sessions for 1995 album Balance and has been made available by Van Halen News Desk.

The site says of the song "The solo on this track was recorded in one take on a Gibson ES-335 through Ed's Marshall. Ed was fooling around with some suggestions from Bruce Fairbairn, while unbeknownst to him, Bruce was taping his first attempt. Fairbairn decided he liked what he heard.

"A lot of thought went into the coin sound at the end of the song. Everyone crowded around the recording console where they dropped quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies until they got the perfect sound."

Van Halen News Desk will issue previously unheard instrumental tracks twice a week for the next few weeks. Check out the track here.
