A man, his guitar, some songs, and a whole lotta technique, style and familiarity.
Bromberg plays his greatest songs on solo guitar, with explanations of their origins
and authors. These include Rev. Gary Davis, Bob Dylan, and a litany of titans that Bromberg either knew personally or studied under. It is a very personal, one-on-one relationship that he holds between us and his memory. Each piece he plays is flawlessly recorded and played for
you live. Audio quality is excellent at full bandwidth.
It is easy for a non-player to write this off, but, if you digest this, or play yourself, after a song or two you realize that you are being treated to a truly epic player in command performance. David's first hand experiences with the greatest folk, blues, gospel, musicians who ever lived are simply priceless.
This is a monumental reference work for any folk music lover, performed by an incredible talent, and a most humble man. The result is genuine, American, and enjoyable.
