When this album was originally released, 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 a small impact in the States, but it went platinum in Canada.
