Groovin’, Bromberg Stylee

by wjohngalloway

Just sitting down enjoying Dead or Alive.
Back in the days after I left school my dad had a business doing painting and decorating. One of the guys he employed was a singer on the Scottish Country and Western circuit.
Wouldn’t have trusted him as far as I could throw him but we had many long chats about music (even then I had a secret hankering for a Stetson).
So, one day he brought me in three vinyl discs by David Bromberg. A white jewish boy singin’ the blues?…and rock?….and Bluegrass?. Very, very eclectic. Impossible to pigeonhole.
Thirty years later I’m still enjoying his music. Have a listen.
