Boomtown is the Los Angeles themed and only studio album by the American rock duo David + David, released on July 7, 1986 through A&M Records.

Complete your David + David collection. This grouping collects all issues of the one and only album released by the duo "David + David". Welcome To The Boomtown. Swallowed By The Cracks.

David + David's Boomtown is a hard look at urban life in the 1980s, a time when many were fulfilling the American Dream of financial success and upward mobility. It is not an easy album to listen to, as the characters depicted in the songs are often dealing with major problems such as drugs and domestic violence. But it is an artful record, full of poetry and convincing stories of the hard times that many silently endured. At times the record is full of pop hooks, and at other stages a more bleak sound dominates.

The two Davids here are David Baerwald and David Ricketts. They showed great talent and promise, but turned out to be a one-hit wonder who released only a single album. Miami during the 80s could be viewed as a boomtown, where the economic boom was not caused by mineral strikes, but by the flourishing illegal drug trade. Joshua from La Crosse, WiActually the song is about people involved in different aspects of the illegal drug trade - "Miss Christina" the smuggler and "handsome Kevin" the low-level dealer (the lyrics don't say whether he's selling to street-level pushers or directly to users).

It is really too bad that David and David stopped their recorded musical collaboration with Boomtown. The only flaw in this collection of amazing music is that Welcome to the Boomtown is such a superlative effort that it almost eclipses the rest of the album. 4 people found this helpful. I have had this album in cassette, CD and now digital. I like every song on it and wish David & David had released more. There's a lot of energy here and the sound never gets old. I especially like the lyrics and vocals.
