Episode 15 - David Lee Roth - A Little Ain't Enough (Part 1)

The Wheel has picked A Little Ain’t Enough by David Lee Roth. How will the guys rate this album? Will they find it better than they remembered? Stay tuned!

A Little Ain’t Enough is the third full-length studio album by David Lee Roth, released on January 15, 1991 through Warner Music Group.

It was certified gold on April 11, 1991. Produced by Bob Rock, the album featured the lead guitar work of Jason Becker, a then up-and-coming guitarist who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) a week after joining the band. He managed to finish recording the album but was unable to tour in support of the album, as his condition left him with little strength in his hands.

The album marked the beginning of Roth’s commercial decline, given the drop-off in sales from his prior two albums. During the year of the album’s release, the Seattle grunge movement was beginning a in rock, and Roth’s brand of glam metal was considered, by mainstream audiences, obsolete
