Mo' Breau is an album by Canadian guitarist Lenny Breau, released in 1981.[1]

History[edit]

Breau signed a three-album deal with Gene Rosenthal for Adelphi Records in 1977, the first of which was produced by Rosenthal and was released as Five O'Clock Bells. Subsequent recordings from these sessions were produced by Dan Doyle and resulted in Mo' Breau and Last Sessions.[2]

Originally released on LP in 1981, it was reissued in 1987 on the Genes label and again reissued along with Five O'Clock Bells.[3]
