Danny DOUMA - Night Eyes (1979)

Artist: Danny Douma
Album: Night Eyes
Label: Warner Bros. Records
Catalog#: BSK 3326
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album

Released: 1979
Genre: Rock

Duration: 00:37:55

The opening harmonics on "Hurt to Pride" make it sound promising, but then the band kicks in and Danny Douma's debut recording seems mildly flaccid at first, echoing the musical DNA of several other southern California acts of the '70s. But as the recording continues, things pick up steam and Douma starts to develop a unique sound of his own. It's a polished effort through and through, with concerted efforts to break the mold of southern California rock. At times Douma succeeds with flying colors, and at other times he fails miserably. The big hit here, however, is "Hate You," a bluesy laid-back shuffle affair (think Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop"), which features everyone in the Mac (minus Stevie Nicks) and Eric Clapton as his backing band. Douma never made another album after this -- which is both a curiosity and an enigma, considering that his potential as a singer/songwriter could have been so much more with a bit more effort. - Rob Theakston
