Bromberg's recording is the one to have, though. The guitar break...You have Doc's original "Black Mountain Rag" on his first Vanguard album; you have John Herald's intro to Ian and Sylvia's "Four Rode By," on the "Northern Journey" album; you have Clarence's "Sheik of Araby;" you have Norman's break on Steve Earle's "Tom Ames' Prayer" on the "Train A'Comin" album...and Bromberg's break on his own "Bojangles." Then you've heard everything really important.

Peter.
