Based on overwhelming demand from my loyal readers, i present you with my second Underachievers post. OK…I just lied two times. There was not overwhelming demand in fact no one commented on the first Underachiever post. Also, I seem to have a shortage of readers in general. Grand total for yesterday 0.
Nevertheless I feel compelled to continue posting the best music you have never heard. Today’s post is about a 1980 era duo called David and David that was composed of David Baerwald and David Ricketts. The put out an album called Boomtown in 1986 and I think it was one of the best albums of the 80s in general. I was particularly fond of their first single from that album called Welcome to the Boomtown. Let’s listen…..
All of their songs were similar to Welcome to the Boomtown in that they all featured interesting characters and the music was engaging. The stories told in the songs were not happy ones but they served as a mirror to what was going on in the United States during Ronald Reagan’s reign.
The ambulance arrived too late. I guess she just didn’t want to wait…….
The group released Swallowed by the Cracks as it’s second single. See what you think….
It too was somewhat of a hit. I had the album and couldn’t wait for their next one. I am still waiting for that album today.
Cue the crickets………………
