TUFF LUCK – Tuff Luck ’87 [digitally remastered reissue +7] out of print

TUFF LUCK was a hard rocking, hair metal band from South Florida tearing up the scene in the mid-to-late ’80s. They had the looks. They had the talent. They had the local following. What they lacked was the one lucky break that would have turned their entire career around. Seeing such talent not make it is a true shame.
TUFF LUCK released their self-titled debut album on LP & cassette in January of 1987 via a small label – tracks recorded between 1985-1986 – and sold out in a few weeks. However, a major company deal never arrived. The album was released on CD in the Nineties, but soon went out of print with used copies later being sold for over $200.
As requested, here’s the rare remastered reissue released few years ago when a documentary film about the TUFF LUCK story was screened at selected theaters. Includes a bunch of bonus tracks / demos from the era.
Rare release, Highly Recommended

TUFF LUCK – Tuff Luck II aka How I See The World (out of print)

As requested, here’s TUFF LUCK second official album “Tuff Luck II“, also known as ”How I See The World”. Florida’s TUFF LUCK never had the ‘luck‘ they truly deserved, and perhaps they didn’t make it big because refused to move to L.A. in the ’80s.
After their 1987 self-titled debut album, some major labels were interested but no deal materialized. The band keep rocking the East Coast in years to come with several line-up changes.
By 1992-1993, TUFF LUCK recorded this second album with a different singer – although great original guitar player & songwriter Dave Scott is still here – and slightly changed their original hair metal / sleazy sound. Fortunately they didn’t jump into the alternative / grunge style of that years. Only a limited CD press was done.
The material on “Tuff Luck II” is American hard rock from the early ’90s, some kind of a mix between very early Tesla, Ugly Kid Joe, Skid Row, Saigon Kick and Shotgun Messiah’s ‘Americanized’ second album.
Rare CD, Highly Recommended
