    Default A Little Ain't Enough-album cover art

    Does anyone know where the devil from the album cover originated from? Since there are minstrel pictures in the inside sleeve, I thought it might be related to that, or perhaps something else, circa the late 1800s. Any information as to the origins of the ALAE devil would be most appreciated.

    Don't know much about the Devil used on ALAE but it was also used on the cover of Lonn Friend's book LIFE ON PLANET ROCK

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    Thanks for linking that. Odd choice for an album cover, as ALAE wasn't a huge album. I think it's a really good album, DLR's last good one, IMHO.

    I think it was originally gonna be titled "cut n out" or something like that but then there was the whole john bobbet thing and the record company made them change it. I dont' remember all the details.

    it's an "ok" album, I dig drop in the Bucket and a few other tunes but sometimes it's just "blah" to me.

    I can see Michael Anthony singing back-up on a lot of these songs.

    Wow, totally forgot about that!

    Yes, it was going to be titled that, and I think the original album art was considered too risque for record stores and Warner wouldn't go with it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
