Product Description

Back in the '60s and '70s, David played with anybody who was anybody: ex-Beatles, Dylan, Willie Nelson, the Grateful Dead--you name it! Now David is looking back on his old friends to make a special project out of this album. Each friend is to write and produce a song for him to perform in his own imitable style! Includes new songs by Vince Gill, Linda Ronstadt, Doctor John, Los Lobos and many others!

Review

Bromberg . . . makes every track shine, like the A-list session man he s always been. --Will Hermes, Rolling Stone

. . . a roots smorgasbord that showcases Bromberg's impressive range . . . he [has] an engagingly unaffected manner and know how to get to the heart of a song. (3 of 4 stars). --Nick Cristiano, Philadelphia Inquirer

A sublime platter that finds Bromberg collaborating with a host of high-profile friends. . . . Every song is a gem, with Bromberg bringing down the curtain with a stirring rendition of the title track made famous by Bill Withers. Fantastic from beginning to end. (4½ stars) --Ryan Cormier, The News Journal, Wilmington, DE

David Bromberg
"Use Me"
(Appleseed, 2011)
-------------------------------
Four years ago, blues/folk giant David Bromberg came out of retirement with his first album in ages, a delightful acoustic set that wowed old fans and hooked a few new ones, too. This time, he's plugged in and is playing mostly electric, with help from a bunch of high-powered pals: Dr. John, Vince Gill, Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Keb' Mo', Tim O'Brien and Linda Ronstadt all pitch in, although largely in the background. Other than Ronstadt, the various singers stick to playing instruments, while Bromberg cruises through a familiar-sounding set of funky blues and soulful novelty songs. The title track is an effective cover of the Bill Withers oldie; other highlights include the mournful "Blue Is Falling" (given a bluegrassy twist, courtesy of O'Brien and his pals), "Lookout Mountain Girl" (with Vince Gill) and "It's Just A Matter Of Time," where Linda Ronstadt shares some sweet harmonies with bluegrasser Laurie Lewis. Now at the sweet, tender age of sixty-five, Bromberg is admittedly getting a little long in the tooth, but he's still got a depth of true-blues know-how, and it's always a delight to see him kick up some dust, and get down and dirty. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Country Music)

Some folk, some blues, some angry bite, and a half dozen or so other musical genres all come together into what Bromberg does. He does it here as well as any other album. There's a bit more variety on this album because it has so many doff producers and contributors. But this is this stuff, whatever it is, and it's done here as well as it gets done -- all that and apiece of pie.

David Bromberg ('roots' musician) presents traditional folk/blues/country idioms in this greatly enjoyable new CD titled 'Use Me'. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Ride On Out A Ways" (wonderful piano, guitar & vocals featuring John Hiatt), "Blue Is Falling" (countryish track with beautiful melody & vocals featuring Tim O'Brien) & "The Long Goodbye" (countryish track with incredible guitar/accordion combination, melody & vocals featuring the band Los Lobos). Great tracks include "Tongue" (great blues guitar & trumpet featuring Levon Helm), "You Don't Wanna Make Me Mad" (featuring the legendary Dr. John), "Diggin' In The Deep Blue Sea" (great blues guitar & vocals featuring Keb' Mo'), "Old Neighborhood" (great guitar work & vocals featuring Widesread Panic), "It's Just A Matter Of Time" (great guitar & vocals/duet featuring Linda Ronstadt), "Lookout Mountain Girl" (countryish track, great duet with Vince Gill) & "Use Me" (great blues guitar, drums & vocals. This is a great title track). Okay track is "Bring It With You When You Come" (featuring Levon Helm). On overall, 'roots' musician David Bromberg presents very enjoyable traditional folk/bluegrass music in this new CD 'Use Me', featuring a host of great musicians on their own right, a highly recommended CD listening.

David Bromberg had returned to performing his unique roots/blues music after a 17 year sabbatical when I caught his show at the Strathmore Music Center outside of DC in 2007. He was promoting his new album, "Try Me One More Time" (which was nominated for a Grammy and damn sure should have won). I was simply blown away by his obvious love for his music, let alone his blues guitar prowess. I was an instantly-made fan.

Turns out that his years as a sideman (especially with Jerry Jeff Walker)imbued in him a great respect for singer/songwriters, and he picks some of his favorites for this new disc.

In an albyum full of highlights, my favoirite was "You Don't Wanna Make Me Mad" featuring Dr. John - "Nawlin's Funk" at its best. Several cuts with John Hiatt bring a "today" sound, especially "Ride on Out A Ways." He pairs with another favorite of mine, Levon Helm, in a terrific version of "Bring it With You When You Come."

David is back, looking for new and cherising the old. Long may he play.

Highly anticipated. Tried it a couple of times. Great people, an awkward assortment of songs. I think this would have succeeded as an instrumental album. Good jams, on most songs, ruined by weak vocals all the way around. One of the things I like about Bromberg is the bite to his vocals which is noticeably absent. Bummer. Maybe next time!

I heard of this new CD when it came out, and did not pop for it at the time because I did not imagine he could maintain a freshness after so many years away from mainstream blues and folk. Not so. He is brilliant. The core concept of this CD, which is asking other famous people to write his songs, and then produce them on their turf, is really creative, risky, but it worked, man did it work. That voice of his sure brought me back, I can't stop listening to this one.

I had sorely missed David Bromberg, "How late'll you play til" was one of my favorite albums of all time. (It was a two disc vinyl release, now re-released as two separate CD's.)
"Try me one more time" was his return album and is actually better in my mind than this one, but I am grateful to have even more of David's work.
I would purchase "Try Me" before this one, but certainly would buy this one next.
