Doucette - Mama, Let Him Play (1977)

As promised, here's Doucette's debut from 1977. A more varied collection of songs than "The Douce Is Loose", there's plenty of excellent fretwork and melodic hooks to keep you reeled in. With a very west coast sound in place, the album dabbles in power pop, AOR, R&B and there's even a very subtle hint of latin influence in places. Whether this is superior to his 2nd album is up in the air. I think I appreciate this a bit less than his subsequent work, but this isn't awful by any means. Download and find out for yourself!
