Ragtime wizardry from the king of the National Guitar
O. Buxton | Highgate, UK | 08/08/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, Ok, so we all know the Mississippi delta shines like a National guitar, and so does the cover of Dire Strait's poly-platinum "Brothers in Arms", but if you want to know what one *really* sounds like, here is the place - with the greatest respect to Messrs. Simon and Knopfler - you need to start. Bob Brozman is, from what I can tell, a criminally under-purchased music recording artist: he must be, since he has sold fewer records than guitar legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and BB King, in whose company his name is surely entitled to be dropped. This record comprises a lot of quirky Ragtime and Hawaiian cuts - it's not quite as bluesy as I expected - which all sound fun, until Bob rips into Robert Johnson's monumental Stones In My Pathway, at a pace jaunty enough to sound almost uplifting (not a quality usually associated with Johnson's remarkable oeuvre), when suddenly any doubt you may have been entertaining as to whether you are indeed in the hands of a master instrumentalist are immediately dispelled. Thereafter, prepare for your eyebrows to spend more time than they usually do communing with your hairline. It shouldn't be possible for a man do do such things with an acoustic instrument. And if it's possible, it sure shouldn't be legal."
My wife's all time favorite
O. Buxton | 05/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sorry guys, I personally am not familiar with this gem, but a minute ago I accidentally deleted the very positive review my wife had carefully composed. She is refusing to write it again, but I feel this artist deserves to get his due. If you like vintage blues with a bit of a ragtime feeling, grab this cut and enjoy!"
Brozman is the Resonator King
scatdaddy | Sanbornton, NH | 05/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is more than the description of "twenty-one songs sharing sding syncopation;" it is a fantastic display of technical virtuosity both beautiful and sublime that will leave you wishing for more, give me more..."
