"I am surprised at the limitd amount of Bromberg albums available on CD.This "album" is really a combinatin of two albums,my memory escapes me on the one title ,but I still have a very old copy of"BANDIT IN A BATHING SUIT",I may be wrong but I believe this was the last album before the band broke up. The band is so versitle,blues,country,Irish fiddle tunes,dixieland and rock combined . Every member of the band was given a chance to showcase his talents. I first saw the band at The Philadelphia Folk Festival many,many years ago and have enjoyed its music ever since. Hopefully some more albums will be released of this talented but sorely overlooked group. If you never heard The David Bromberg Band,by all means get this album post haste."

"You may listen to this album and find it hard to believe its all one band. How can one group of musicians _possibly_ produce dixieland, bluegrass, electric blues, Irish music, country, Delta blues, jazz, several flavors of rock, and God knows what else, and sound credible at all of them?I don't know...all I know is that listening to this band is an incredible experience and an endless joy. The songs are good, the musicianship is incredible, and there is a feeling of fun, of feeling good, that suffuses everything they do.I bought this CD after having "Reckless Abandon" on vinyl. Getting to know the other album, and it's a treat. One casualty of the jump to CD....the original cover of "Reckless Abandon" by B. Kliban was wonderful in itself. Its what led me to buy the vinyl album in the first place!I only regret that I missed the chance to see this band live. I understand that Bromberg has retired from performing and recording. A great loss...must have been God's own bar band. Enjoy!"

"Well, I was looking to replace my vinyl copy of Reckless Abandon, and found this instead. I could kick myself in the arse for lending it out. Now I won't have a copy of "Beware, Brother, Beware" OR Stagger Lee. Damn. So, my review is thus: best muscianship you'll ever hear, delivered in a fun, funky and accessable style. Sort of like blues, bluegrass, Irish, rock n roll- all intermingled. Sigh...."
