The Stunning Surprise of 1987.

"David Baerwald and David Ricketts seemed to appear from thin air in 1987 with their victorious debut titled Boomtown. The album depicts the hopeless struggle of two close friends to overcome their obstacles and reach their goal; which is, complete an artistic work of tender and stirring compositions. Plagued by alcohol and drugs (Swallowed By The Cracks, A Rock For The Forgotten), and bending under the burdens of daily existence (Being Alone Together), David & David delayed their ambitions. Failed relationships also enter the picture: `Ain't So Easy' pits affection against possession, and earthly pleasure temporally cures the trials of survival in `All Alone In The Big City.' The only optimistic cut is the final `Heroes' where David & David vow to bury their past failures, and concentrate on the venture ahead. The result is the majestic Boomtown.Musically, Boomtown is sensuous and intense. Their ability to create dramatic compositions (Welcome To The Boomtown, River's Gonna Rise, All Alone In The Big City) is superb .These cuts bring to mind the percussive rhythms of Peter Gabriel and the romantic sheen of Roxy Music's Avalon. The CD is produced by Davitt Sigerson who also worked with and The Bangles and Tori Amos. Boomtown is a triumph - the stunning surprise of 1987."

"I first heard "Boomtown" on a local College station in Bloomington Indiana. I was hooked and picked it up that same day.
What a shame they never went past the one album.I have what is available of David Baerwald and it also is very good.But Boomtown
is by far one of the best I have ever owned.Strong lyrics ,catchy
melodies, and instrumentally tight.A must have for any solid music collection.My 18 year old son has a copy and plays it on a
regular basis and rates it one of his favorites.Pick it up and I
promise you it will be in heavy rotation on your system."

"As most that have listened to this album will agree, it is a must. To follow suit with the rest of the reviews, I too heard Boomtown on a small college radio station, late at night, and had to know who they were. After walking accross campus and talking with the DJ of the station, and begging for another cut, I had my prize, a bootleg copy. That was in 1986 at Humboldt State University, and I still have the album fourteen years later (now on CD). The music that these two have made, I feel, still stands up with some of the best of today. Give it a listen, and you will have found one of those rare albums that is good all the way through."
