David Lee Roth (A Little Ain't Enough) 1991




This is such a great album. I wonder if anyone on here has even heard the entire album besides the title track: "A Lil Ain't Enough". The album itself  has some great rock songs, and some really bluesy stuff that you wouldn't necessarily associate with Diamond Dave, namely "Tell The Truth" and "Sensible Shoes", which are personal faves of mine.

Dave made an excellent choice in picking his new guitar wunderkid, Jason Becker. I had known of him prior to him joining when he was fronting the band Cacophony with Marty Friedman. It's just a shame that Jason finally reaches the big time, only to be stricken with Lou Gehrig's Disease.  He never got to tour in support of the record and barely finished the album as is. Such an amazing player. He knocked it out of the park with this one.

Having revisited this one recently, this is still a good rocking record and holds up extremely well, more so than some of his other solo albums. As mentioned before, it's got a lot of blues influences peppered throughout. It's even more shocking in a way because I checked out a lot of Jason's earlier work in Cacophony the last time I listened to A Little Ain't Enough. If you got a little taste of his playing in that band, the last thing you would expect from Jason is blues playing when he was heavily influenced with neo-classical shredding at the time.

Fave songs: A Lil Ain't Enough, Shoot It, Lady Luck, Tell The Truth, 40 Below, Sensible Shoes and It's Showtime! (which is vintage "Van Halen"). Drop In The Bucket is probably my fave of them all.
