In spite of recording just one album, the California duo of David Baerwald and David Ricketts created some of the finest mainstream pop of the 1980's. The songs of Boomtown were tales of despair and broken dreams during the Reagan Era. |
In 1986, David & David registered a hit with "Welcome to Boomtown," the only single that charted. Ricketts has not released anything since Boomtown. Baerwald embarked on a solo career, which has enabled him to
enjoy critical acclaim.
