Editors’ Notes

A musician has to earn the right to play the blues as simply as David Bromberg does on Try Me One More Time, which is perhaps why the esteemed singer/songwriter waited 18 years to make this album. Like his compatriot Bob Dylan, Bromberg is now a wizened old man not dissimilar to the blues players he'd wanted to imitate as a hungry young musician. Because he's accrued so much in terms of life experience, his music requires much less flash. Even Bromberg’s guitar work—so renowned for its virtuosic qualities—here feels relaxed and at times even slightly frayed, which just goes to show that Bromberg no longer feels he has anything to prove. Instead, Try Me One More Time is about atmosphere and feeling. He plays these songs as if from memory in a single sitting, and they feel like the still image that the dust cloud of his life has left behind. The essence of his playing is its unhurriedness, which is heard to great effect on an unusually languorous cover of Bob Dylan’s “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry.”

Customer Reviews

Try Me...

The review here is terribly unfair. It seems to me after 17 years of absence from the scene our reviewer should be singing HIGHER praises - not lower. As the two other "reviewers" prove, this is an opportunity for a whole new audience to share in Bromberg's love of the finger picking tradition and also to get a taste of the wry humor and deep understanding of the depth of our American tradition. His voice "never the greatest" as the reviewer says, is none-the-less deeply evocative. I remember hearing David for the first time in the early 70's and falling in love with his Jewish white-boy take on blues classics, making them relevant to a whole new generation — my generation, and David's. And now its time for passing it on. And there is no one better suited to doing that. Welcome Back David! I'm ready to try it one more time!

An excellent album (for a newcomer to David Bromberg)

this is the only Bromberg album I have had the pleasure to listen to. My dad forced me to listen to it and I quickly appreciated everything about it. His voice is fabulous and his fingerpicking is great and something I want to strive for in my own playing. I will be getting more of Bromberg's library soon.

Good from front to back.

This is also the first David Bromberg I have had the pleasure to hear. Bought this album as an impulse buy, and have been in love with it ever since. This album is stellar from the first song to the very last with no "meh" moments in between. It is hard to even say which is my favorite. Part of the reason why I love this album is because how gutsy he is with the varied feel in his song selection. Songs like "Try Me One More Time" and "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes A Lot To Cry" are quintessential blues, but then he throws ones in like "Levee Camp Moan," which is a ccapella, and has a very vernacular blues feel. Some even have a New Orleans flavor to them. Really interesting and enjoyable listening, you won't regret buying this album, or ever be bored listening to it.
