Enuff Z' Nuff
Tonight Sold Out
Released: 2008, Metal Mind Productions
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Hair Metal or Power Pop? Call them what you want but you cannot deny the small impression this Chicago quartet made. Despite the revolving door for some band members the main 2 remained pretty much together and kept the name alive.
This live offering was recorded last year after longtime drummer Rickey Parent lost his battle with cancer. Chip, Donnie and Derek reunited with former drummer Vikki to do this show and a yet to be released studio album tentatively called LOST IN VEGAS.
If you didn’t know any different you’d swear this was a show from their heyday. They sound every bit as good today as they did back then. Vocally Donnie sounds like the albums, his raspy voice is the same as it was when “New Thing” and “Fly High Michelle” first came out. Hearing these live today will bring memories flooding back to when you first heard them.
Enuff is one of the most overlooked bands of a generation. They have put out many great albums over the years but have for some unknown reason haven’t hit mega stardom. With any luck this will help them get some exposure and noticed. A great live disc that isn’t filled with studio overdubs. This is the real thing.
