If You Can’t Lick ‘Em… Lick ‘Em

This classic Nuge studio album is an innuendo-ridden tribute to Uncle Teddy’s favourite pastime – and we don’t mean hunting deer! It features Ted teaming up with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora on “That’s The Story of Love”. This final Nuge album of the 1980s is one of his strongest of the decade, bringing home the compact and intense sounds of Ted’s guitar licks.

Released: February 1988
