Editors’ Notes

After recording two albums of unruly funk with the David Bromberg Band, the mercurial Bromberg hit the reset button with 1978’s aptly titled My Own House. Featuring only acoustic guitar, banjo, fiddle, and Bromberg’s warped and vulnerable voice, the album is a handsome vision of traditional folk music that doesn’t feel traditional at all. Maybe that’s because he brings the same attitude of tenderness and patience to covers of Phil Spector’s “To Know Him Is to Love Him” and Ray Charles’ “Georgia on My Mind” as he does the 17th-century Celtic instrumental “Sheebeg and Sheemore.” As a bonus, this edition includes Bromberg’s next album, You Should See the Rest of the Band, which was recorded live in concert during the spring of 1979. Though his band is again on hand to deliver the steam-powered R&B of “Helpless Blues” and “Sharon,” Bromberg's at his most convincing when he’s laying back rather than leaning forward, as on “Solid Gone.” The song that bridges the two albums is “The Lower Left Hand Corner of the Night,” a quietly pulsing solo instrumental that's 4 a.m. melancholy incarnate.

Customer Reviews

"As The Years Go Passing By..."

David Bromberg first got some notice as "A Sideman" on Bob Dylan's "New Morning!" Credit to Mr. Dylan (again) for his taste in picking out fine guitarists:{Robbie Robertson, Mike Bloomfield, Mark Knofler and David Bromberg!}; to name but a few! But let's open the door to Mr. David Bromberg's "Own House"! (I had David's first solo LP; "David Bromberg", which had some serious Blues, Country, Folk and Rock styles all going on all at once!) "My Own House" is an awesome assortment of "The Two Faces Of David Bromberg"! David the" Folk-Blues-American-Trad-Song-Interperter"; who would put a smile on the face of Mr. John Hammond, Sr. and Mr Dave Van Ronk simply for collecting & popularizing all this obscure material; and; David the "Funky-Band-Leader-Blazing-Guitar-Flying-Fiddle" Guy! (He's also on my "gotta see him Live list!) If you love music by The Band, Nickel Creek, Allison Krauss & Union Station; Kansas City, Delta or Chicago Blues; find your way to David Bromberg's "House" and knock on the front door!...by Grimmbo.

David Bromberg is the spantazmicgorical ultimate fantazmalistic best.

My first days of listening to David Bromberg came from my old buddy Kevin, We and several females were skinny dipping in the Missisippi. We had a floatable island and about one more lady than either of us could handle. It was way beyond last call at the bars and we was just having a party. Kevin, my friend turned us onto How late do ya play, part 2. We were soaking in the river and Kevin made a point of tellling us that he had met David Bromberg at some point in his life. Kevins Cerwin Vega speakers were just talking to the river. we were enjoying the conversation.. I appreciate Mr. Brombergs skill at making music and think he is the soul speaker of folk. . I have gone to the extent of gathering as much of Mr Brombergs songs as I can from this mans collection. The music he sings just seems to put my mind at ease. I have had a complement while fueling my vehicle once When I was laying "Don't let the glasses fool ya" down and had some middle aged lass tell me those tunes were the bomb. I really wish David would produce some video's or a movie of his exploits; with a plot or no plot. David is a hero of mine. Great job, great music Stay healthy and live forever in our hears David. Kudos to the mastery of music and guitar.

What Fun!

I saw Dave live in Missoula, Montana, in a student union ballroom in the early seventies, and was amazed. From Bluegrass to "N'yarleen's" talkin' blues, that concert expanded my definitions of American music. Bromberg is demonstrably capable of so many familiar genres that he is hard to classify. "Folk" just doesn't match up with the "Bullfrog Blues." (On other albums and worth the search.) Whether you like your blues from Chicago, St. Louie or "N'yarleens," Bromberg and his sidemen do deliver. Or they can go funky, mellow, bluegrassy or even (yes) folky. It's probably way too generationally telling that I am cheered by the realization that musicians like Maria Muldaur, Tom Waits, Jesse Colin Young and David Bromberg (who all worked the college circuit 30-plus years ago so I got to hear them live) are still making music and are available on iTunes (because it is such a pain to digitalize my old LP's myself!). Take a listen!
