Consumer Guide by Review Date: 1974-05-01


David Bromberg: Wanted Dead or Alive (Columbia, 1973) Any Jewish boy with glasses who makes his living doing Blind Willie McTell imitations had better remember his place. Hence, this key line: "When I got up this morning I had Someone Else's Blues." He always could play, and now that he no longer takes his voice seriously the fact that it sounds funny is an extra added attraction. B+

Larry Coryell: The 11th House (Vanguard, 1974) Another attempt at real jazz-rock by the man a lot of people think is the best guitarist in the world. Thin and contrived at times, but more often multi-layered and hard, with no mystical bullshit. B+
