Front sleeve of Rough Enough circa 1997

Set up for rock music licenses, the first releases were Robin Auld, Love Kills and Rockship, Rough Enough.  

Rough Enough is an un-compromising hard rock album by two of Germany's big names from the 1970s rock music scene, Alex Conti and Inga Rumpf. All the songs were in english, a mixture of originals and covers, which came as a surprise to some fans. The production and performance is of a high standard and the album continues to sell on download well over a decade after release.  DOWNLOAD TRACKS HERE http://itunes.apple.com/de/album/rough-enough/id328756773
