One of David Bromberg's finest moments, this album Wanted Dead or Alive. Some of Bromberg's best-loved material can be found here, including "The Holdup," "Danger Man," "Send Me to the 'Lectric Chair," "The New Lee Highway Blues," and Bob Dylan's "Wallflower." Bromberg's band was always a melange of styles, from folk to tin pan alley to acoustic blues. This album is from 1974, Backing musicians include several members of The Grateful Dead, like Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, Keith Godcheaux, as well as Andy Statman on mandolin and tenor sax. Are there any other albums out there with Phil Lesh and big Tony Markellis both on them? You have no idea how important Bromberg was to us growing up, our top three were Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna and Bromberg. Get into it. - D. Margu.
