David Lee Roth Biography - David Lee Roth Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

The nineties continued to be groundbreaking years for David Lee Roth, as his platinum plus rocking effort A Little Ain’t Enough raced up the charts. Armed with 12 new songs, a great production from Bob Rock, and a band that only Roth could pull together, A Little Ain’t Enough has gone on to become one of his most highly regarded albums in his legendary career. However, like a couple of his other significant fan favorites from his coveted discography, they have been out of print for many years, until now. The veteran rock label Friday Music does this magnificent album justice once again, and this time it is remastered by Joe Reagoso, plus it includes the original artwork elements, song lyrics, etc. A truly pristine recording which has stood the test of time, is now within your reach once again. The album goes into overdrive with a play on the title ”A Lil’ Ain’t Enough” and continues breaking new territory with smashes like ”Shoot It” and radio favorite ”Hammerhead Shark”. With help from his killer band Steve Hunter (guitar), Jason Becker (lead guitar), Brett Tuggle (keyboards and vocal) ,Gregg Bissonette returns on drums from the Eat `Em and Smile band, and Matt Bissonette on follows up on bass and vocals, it’s no wonder this album raced to the top rungs of the album and rock charts in 1991. Twelve solid performances are what you get on this amazing collection. No home should be without out this album, and if you are truly looking for a good time, no frills rock and roll DLR-style masterpiece, then A Little Ain’t Enough is the answer.

  • THIS album is the best album DLR produced post Van Halen. And that is saying something. Jason Becker, a 19 year old, was the greatest talent find EVER. Unfortunately, Jason was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gherig’s Disease) DURING the recording sessions and never toured with Dave, and never produced more brilliance with the master of wit and showmanship…Because of that tragedy, and the emergence of the 1990’s “whiner sound” that took over (and sadly still has hold today), Dave’s career also went down. BUT, if you want to hear the 80’s BIG ROCK sound, with guitar solos, FUN lyrics, party attitude, GET THIS no matter what you have to do.Bob Rock, incidentally, produced Metallica’s Black Album. ALAE is better. GET IT.

  • I’m a big Van Halen fan and due to the fact that the 1st song I ever heard from them was “Jump” it solidified my status as a David Lee Roth fan. Therefore, I had to listen to his solo albums. This is only the second, album i’ve heard from DLR (the other being “Skyscraper” and while this one has better lyrics, I think in the music department, I think they are kind of a tie.). Here are the tracks and my thoughs and oppinions:
    A Little Ain’t Enough:Really good title track, some of the best solo DLR lyrics.
    Shoot It:Very good beat and lyrics too it. I really like this song.
    Lady Luck: This isn’t a terrific song, it’s kind of…Boring really isn’t the word, but it’s the best I can come up with.
    Hammerhead Shark:This is a pretty cool song actually. It’s very catchy
    Tell the Truth:It’s allright. It’s not the best song on the album
    Baby’s On Fire: This is better than the Van Halen song “On Fire”. It’s a really good song.
    40 Below:This is a good song and the lyrics are kind of funny.
    Sensible Shoes:The harmonica work is pretty good but the song itself just isn’t terrific.
    Last Call:This song has a pretty good chorus, except the verses are kind of dumb
    The Dogtown Shuffle:It’s semi-good. It’s nowhere near being the best song on the album,
    It’s Showtime:The guitar in the beginning is great,and it’s a pretty good song the rest of the way through as well
    Drop in the Bucket:Guitar sounds spectacular. This is one of the better songs on the album.

    So, all in all, this is a pretty good DLR album. A must for Van Halen fans. B+.

  • In 1991 David Lee Roth released his third solo album A little Ain’t Enough. This was Dave’s first album without Steve Vai and Billy Sheehan for a backup band. The album was a commercial disappointment and only went gold. The album also got overall bad reviews. All of this is unfortunate, because, this is a really good CD! Today a lot of fans regard this as Dave’s best solo album. The backup band on this album was awesome. It featured Jason Becker on guitar. He is a killer guitarist who may have been the next Eddie Van Halen, had he not tragically developed ALS. Steve Hunter was the second guitarist. The rhythm section on this CD was stellar, with Gregg Bissonette on drums, and Matt Bissonette on bass. The album was produced by Bob Rock, so it has a big arena-rock sound. This CD is best played LOUD! Overall, a majority of the tracks are straight ahead rockers–such as “A lil Ain’t Enough” “Shoot It” “Drop in the Bucket” “Lady Luck” and “40 Below.” There is a touch of blues to the album with “Tell the Truth” and Sensible Shoes.” The only filler on this album is “Hammerhead Shark” which is a dud. The album would have been meaner and leaner without it. The overall vibe of the album is very upbeat, with screeching guitar solo’s that would impress Eddie.
