Overview

Absent from recording since 1990, roots music avatar David Bromberg makes a most welcome return with this collection of vintage folk and blues tunes (plus his own durable title song to spice up the mix), rendered with only his well-seasoned voice and deft, soulful guitar. As per the latter, the masterful Bromberg is in championship form, executing moaning, angular Delta blues lines and jaunty country-folk fingerpicking attacks with equal aplomb. Time has been a benefactor to Bromberg the vocalist, as his once-nasal whine has evolved into a rich, expressive baritone that he employs with an infallible feel for the moment and for the heart. He rages through Tommy Johnson's epic "Big Road," goosing it along with an infectious strolling bass line; strips down to a haunting quiet with Lonnie Johnson-style single-string narration in the foreboding "Levee Camp Moan"; and is positively jubilant in his jaunty fingerpicking of Sam and Kirk McGee's buoyant "Buck Dancer's Choice." Evidence of Bromberg's authoritative interpretive singing is all over the place, but most effectively on the haunting "Lonesome Roving Wolves," an a cappella account of the early Mormons' bloody journey westward. Bromberg used to perform with a big folk band (decades ahead of Bruce Springsteen's assembling of a similar configuration for his Seeger Sessions album and tour), but here, less is more. Try Me One More Time delivers its wit, its wisdom, and its soul undiluted, the artist's voice and instrument alone bearing -- and baring -- unvarnished truths about the human condition.
