The Complete Living Room Tapes is a compilation album by Canadian guitarist Lenny Breau and clarinetist Brad Terry, released in 2003.[1]

The Complete Living Room Tapes consists of the previously released The Living Room Tapes volumes One and Two. and was remastered and issued with additional bonus tracks.

Both solo and duet performances are included in these sessions. They were recorded at the home of Brad Terry in Maine on an informal basis, although both Breau and Terry had discussed commercially releasing the recordings. They were released by Terry after Breau's death.[2]

The song "Visions" is mislabeled. It's a version of the song "Vision" from McCoy Tyner's album Expansions.
