Goodbye Enough Z'Nuff
Released: 2014, Cargo Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Donnie Vie has once again parted ways with Enuff Z’Nuff and embarked on a solo tour entitled “The Tragical History Tour”. This disc was recorded during that European tour and features acoustic performances of some Z’Nuff classics that Donnie helped make famous.
Donnie has a unique raspy voice that was in integral part of the Enuff sound. Now armed with an acoustic guitar he hit the road to give us some fantastic performances. Sadly my copy didn’t have the DVD portion so I cannot comment on the accompanying video of the songs. From an audio aspect however the songs sound very good in this stripped down rendition. To me Enuff Z’Nuff were a heavy Power Pop band very similar to Cheap Trick and mid 60’s The Beatles. Still Rock and Roll but some great hooks and melodies. Being a casual fan of his previous band it is somewhat refreshing to hear how the songs sound in this setting. They still maintain the melody of the original while the lyrics are more prominent now demonstrating what a good lyricist Vie is.
A disc for the fans that probably won’t win him any new ones. It’s an enjoyable disc to put on and relax to. Exactly what you’d expect from an acoustic performance from the former Enuff Z’Nuff singer. His voice is still strong and suits acoustic performances perfectly.
