Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though the esteemed guitarist hasn't released an album since 1990--leaving his career as a recording and touring musician to study violinmaking--David Bromberg's feel for folk and blues tradition and his encyclopedic command of it remain undiminished. This is a back-to-basics affair, just vocals and guitar, as Bromberg puts his own stamp on material from seminal influences such as the Rev. Gary Davis ("I Belong to the Band," "Trying to Get Home") and Bob Dylan ("It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry"), one of the many recording artists who employed Bromberg as a sideman. Though the tricky time shifts of "Buck Dancer's Choice" show his dexterity, there isn't much showoff guitar here (and no guitar at all on the a cappella "Moonshiner" and "Lonesome Roving Wolves"). He's singing better than ever, from the falsetto on Robert Johnson's "Kind Hearted Blues" to the expressiveness of his own title track, as he sounds more than ever like one of the masters he began by trying to emulate. Accompanying the CD are notes from Bromberg that provide extensive annotation on the selection of material. --Don McLeese

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return and an enjoyable set February 27, 2007
By Mr. 33
Format:Audio CD
After a 17 year recoding hiatus, Bromberg is back with this enjoyable set of mostly blues and folk standards. Imagine David Bromberg sitting in your living room singing and picking his Martin M-42 Signature Edition guitar. This album is great fun for Bromberg fans, with the liner notes as entertaining as the music. Ultimately, David does not "make these songs his own" in the way that he has done previously with other blues standards (e.g., "Statesboro Blues," "Dehlia"), but the album as a whole is quite enjoyable. David fingerpicks most of these tunes, breaking out the slide for two of the album's highlights, the title track and Blind Willie McTell's "Love Changing Blues." He also does a nice job with a somber and reflective reading of Elizabeth Cotten's "Shake Sugaree." Notice how the album cover is modeled after David's first solo album? Maybe this release will renew interest in the first album, and maybe someone will put that one back in print. If you're a Bromberg fan, I recommend this album without hesitation. If you're new to Bromberg, check out Midnight on the Water first.

I've waited 30 years for an album that showcases David's talents as a solo performer. After a 17 year hiatus as a performer David Bromberg has returned to the fray with gusto and great list of classic blues and old time music selections. Rumor had it that the elusive Mr. Bromberg was handcrafting guitars for a living. But I heard rumors that Mr. B was doing time in the big house for holdup he perpetrated on his first album way back in 1971. The mugshot on the cover of this, David's newest release looks suspiciously similar to the pen and ink drawing of him on his debut album.

David's voice has singing has deepened during his hiatus and he sings with an authority he never did early on. Even the falsetto part of "Kind Hearted Woman" was a daring feat of blues vocalizing that I've never heard David attempt on earlier outings.

Any white guy who sings the blues is tempting fate but David's approach to singing transcends all comparisons to the original source material with his own quirky style and phrasing. If you've listened to David soulful vocals on "Dehlia" or "Sammy's Song" you'll know why comparisons of David's voice to anyone, black or white, is futile. I write this with a smirk on my face but I'm sincere in my sentiments.

The material is great with selections by Robert Johnson, Gary Davis, Tommy Johnson, Elizabeth Cotton and even an even an under appreciated bottleneck classic by Blind Willie.

The guitar playing is magnificent. What more can I say in praise of one of the gods of acoustic guitar, except "I am not worthy."

My only complaint about "Try Me One More Time" is that it was released on the same day as Ry Cooder's new "My Name Is Buddy." I had a conflict over which CD to buy, so I blew my budget and bought both CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Look At The Roots March 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
David Bromberg is the epitome of a fellow who has navigated his own path. At the height of a burgeoning Rock and Roll career, he left the road, went to violin making school and spent the next twenty years building a violin business.

In his first prime, he was a masterful studio session man and an innovative interpreter of really diverse material. As he has reentered the road, it's as a family man, husband, band leader and musician. Like a cat who has lived eight of his nine lives, he's got nothing left to prove to anyone.

So, that's the foundation of this new record. Bromberg has stopped trying to impress anyone and simply and publically wrestles with his muse. It's a refreshing and sadly unique posture. The music business usually asks for something other than this from its workforce. On "Try Me One More Time", Bromberg takes you into his living room and shows you his tunes.

The liner notes give you the lowdown on the songs and where he found them. The songs themselves are the essence of folk music. Somewhat recognizable material coming out of the mouth of this folk at this moment. Maybe you have to be a guitar player to love the work here but I don't think so.

The record is a labor of love from a guy who doesn't need the work. That makes it rare and important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bromberg's better than ever March 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD from David Bromberg himself about a week before its formal issue, at a concert he gave in Winters, California with his traveling band and the Angel Band.

It's probably not the best introduction to Bromberg and his music ... there are far too many candidates for that, with his "The Player: Retrospective" and "How Late'll Ya Play 'Til?" topping the list for studio and concert styles, respectively. But this album shows how his virtuosity has grown over the years. He hasn't lost a lick of dexterity, particularly with his trademark slide guitar artistry, and his vocal control has never been better ... he can make his voice do anything, and serve any purpose, that he wants. This is an intimate look at an American master playing the best examples of uniquely American music, and his passion for that music is in every note. It's like having an old dear friend show up at your doorstep after a lapse of many years.

P. S. The concert was wonderful -- in fact, it's one of the best concerts I'd been to in years. If he ever decides to release another album with the Angel Band, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. And if it includes "Sharon" and "Lost My Driving Wheel" I just might buy a wheelbarrowful of them.
