“She’s Tuff” has been a personal Riccardo’s favourite since he listened to the tune played by The Fabulous Thunderbirds in their “Portfolio” greatest hits album.
That laugh at the end of the verse caught him and made him think “How cool do you have to be, to write a song with some laughing in it?” and after some research he found out it was a Jerry “Boogie” McCain’s song.
A laid back groove, but still biting and hitting you, with wonderful lyrics about the best woman you can meet (after all she’s so tough to stop a World War) is Blues as it gets and on stage it happens often that the band streches the song to get the audience in or kicking some dynamics on this song (check Riccardo Grosso Blues Band live video concert in Warsaw to see this happening…).
So here we are with the third song of the “Livin A-Live” album: “She’s Tough” as the original title spells or “She’s Tuff” you like it better…
If you missed “Shake Your Hips” you can find it here.
If you missed “Double Trouble” you can find it here.
