Editorial Reviews

One of the biggest rock radio hits of the late 1970's in Canada was 'Mama Let Him Play' by Vancouver rocker Doucette.
The single also charted high at radio stations in the Midwest USA, cracking the Billboard Hot 100, the 1978 album of the same name sold Platinum in Canada, cracking the Billboard Top 200 in the USA.

The following year Doucette released 'The Douce is Loose' which earned gold status (50,000 units sold) in Canada, and spawned the rock radio hit single 'Nobody'.

Both albums were originally issued on the legendary Canadian indie
Mushroom Records label, famous for breaking the first Heart album
Dreamboat Annie as well as albums from Chilliwack, Iain Matthews and Paul Horn.

Previously only released on vinyl and out of print for decades, 'Mama Let Him Play' has been remastered in 24 bit audio from the original master analog tapes, with previously unreleased bonus tracks,new liner notes and photographs from the era. Doucette continues to
perform live at festivals and casinos across North America.

"When this album was originally released in 1977, some claimed that Jerry Doucette was going to be the next guitar hero. Although he never reached those heights, his debut album MAMA LET HIM PLAY stands as a fine representation of mainstream rock in the late '70s. While it may be slightly reminiscent of Steve Miller and the Doobie Brothers, the album is surprisingly consistent and is carried by two strong singles, "Down the Road" and "Mama Let Him Play." MAMA LET HIM PLAY made only a small impact in the States, but it went platinum in Canada."

I don't know what happened to Doucette since this recording. I wish he was still recording music as good as this CD. His great guitar work is unrivaled within his style. His vocal harmonies with his instrument are superb. While his recording doesn't grind any political or social axe, it is a perfect example of what music as entertainment should deliver: a rocking good time!

Wow! I thought that the Eagles' "Hotel California" CD and Bread's "Best of" CD were good! Well, this one is AWESOME! From "Down the road" to "Love is gonna find you" Specially his smash hit "Mama let him play"! Like Doucette says "this is serious rock and roll" Thank you Jerry for all the enjoyment listening to your CD.
