Recorded June 18 and 19, 1976, at the Great American Music Hall, How Late’ll Ya Play Til? combines the best of David Bromberg’s interests. The album is Bromberg’s kind of party: a backyard bluegrass session with a hint of inebriated Dixieland blues. His horn-driven cover of “Sweet Home Chicago” has the rollicking spirit of The E Street Band, but Bromberg is much more of an oddball than Springsteen. He’s a master of dynamics—witness the distance from the viscous jamming of “Sloppy Drunk” to the pin-drop silences of “Come on in My Kitchen”—but even his traditional material carries a streak of proud perversion. The album’s centerpiece is an epic solo rendition of the 1928 blues song “Bullfrog Blues.” The performance is part harrowing short story, part theatrical comedy routine, and part folk tale. For all its juicy details, it's essentially a very long set-up with a killer punchline, one that turns the long-running blues cliché of a double entendre inside out. Like the other performances on this loose and lusty concert album, “Bullfrog Blues” shows that Bromberg, like all the great bluesmen, is as witty as he is lascivious.
One of David's Best
A regular fixture at the Philadelpha Folk Festival and practically every East Coast college for decades, David Bromberg and his band are some of the most extradorinarily talented musicians ever. His music runs the gamut of rock, blues, folk and bluegrass, often all in a single song. In addition to powerful guitar and a solid brass section, the fiddle and mandolin playing are beyond belief, and always highly entertaining. The songs span such a wide gamut of styles that it's very difficult to nail him down to one style, but his extemporanous soliliqy/rant at the end of "Will Not Be Your Fool" has to be heard to be believed, and well worth the 99 cents to get a flavor of one of the most remarkable musicans of the twentieth century.
Such a night!!
We played this album in college until the grooves wore out. There is NO better party album ever made. And to see David in concert is a rare treat. Buy this and play it until the digital wears off!!
Why is he not inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame, certainly their has to be a catagory for a genious like David Bromberg, lets face it, they did induct Madonna and she couldn't even walk in his shoes.
