Make no mistake, David Ball likes making hit records. He has made quite of few of them, in fact. “Thinkin’ Problem,” “Riding with Private Malone” and “When the Thought of You Catches Up with Me” were Top 10 country hits, with a dozen more notched into country airplay.   Ball released the single “I Got a Broken Heart in the Mail.” It was the first hint of what’s on Come See Me, his first album in close to eight years. Ball recorded the album at his Franklin, Tenn. home and is being described as his “most personal record yet.” That’s namely due to the fact that he wrote, produced and played nearly every instrument on the album.   “I Got a Broken Heart in the Mail” finds Ball picking up right where he last left off as a honky-tonk country crooner. There’s some Tex-Mex flair in his guitar picking and the thumping bass line. As evidenced by the title alone, Ball’s “I Got a Broken Heart in the Mail” is an old-school country break-up ballad.  He’s played for the big crowds. Recorded for the big music execs. Followed rigid studio schedules. But these days, the 66-year-old country singer has gone back to basics and revels in dance halls and intimate venues.
