On his first solo album in nearly two decades, folk guitarist David Bromberg picks up just exactly where he left off. TRY ME ONE MORE TIME is an all-acoustic set of 16 songs, nearly all of them traditional folk and blues tunes, such as the ballad "East Virginia" and the sprightly instrumental showcase "Buck Dancer's Choice." Along with these, Bromberg essays a pair of tunes by Robert Johnson and one each by Blind Willie McTell, Reverend Gary Davis, and Elizabeth Cotton. It's proof of Bromberg's mastery that in this setting, Bob Dylan's "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" sounds like a beloved old folk standard.
