Day 113

David & David- Boomtown

This is probably the best album that I've found for $1. I only got it because I remembered loving the song "Welcome To The Boomtown", but really this whole album is great. I've listened to it numerous times since the purchase.

Although, I never had this album originally, I've been a huge David Baerwald fan for 20 years or so. His first solo album, Bedtime Stories, is one of my favorites from the late 80's/early 90's era. I'm always looking for that album on vinyl. Not even sure if it was ever put on wax. Baerwald is an incredible songwriter. I highly recommend you give him a listen. And I gotta give props to David Ricketts for producing three albums by one of my all time faves, Matthew Ryan.

My favorites tunes on this record are the first three: "Welcome to the Boomtown", "Swallowed By The Cracks", and the song that I sometimes only listen to when putting this record on, "Ain't So Easy". I guess that's why they were also the three singles from this record. Side 2 is good too. I especially dig "Swimming In The Ocean" and album closer, "Heroes".

Cool, I actually found the real video for "Welcome To The Boomtown". I'm sure you remember this tune if you are over 30.
