Performer Notes
  • Run-DMC: Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels (rap vocals); Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell (scratches).
  • Additional personnel: Jon Sierra (guitar, piano); Davy D. (guitar, bass); Andreas Straub (guitar); Vincent Hammond, The Uptown Horns (horns); Daniel Shulman (bass); Bobby "Afro" Walker (drums).
  • Engineers: Roey Shamir, Steve Ett, Barbara Milne.
  • After bringing their high-energy and innovative style and sound to the masses with RAISING HELL, RUN-DMC returned with a fabulous follow-up to that ground-breaking album. TOUGHER THAN LEATHER packs plenty of punch and also sports some classic tracks such as "Run's House" and "Beats to the Rhyme." In a move that had proved successful in the past, RUN-DMC chose a remake with "Mary, Mary." One of RUN-DMC's most popular songs to ever hit the streets, "Mary, Mary" provided the commercial pop sound that catapulted the boys from Queens to the top of the charts once again. Other exceptional tracks include "Radio Station," which lashes out at radio programmers, "I'm Not Goin' Out Like That," and the intriguing "Papa Crazy." TOUGHER THAN LEATHER is easily as good as any other RUN-DMC album.
Professional Reviews

Uncut (11/03, p.130) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...[It] now sounds like their masterpiece..."
