History[edit]

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.[1]

Allmusic 4.5/5 stars [2]

Writing for Allmusic, critic Scott Yanow wrote in his review: "A great guitarist who was very versatile (jazz, country, rock) yet very underrated, the late Lenny Breau was at his best in informal settings where he could stretch out... These well-recorded selections feature Breau at his best... Easily recommended to Lenny Breau fans and listeners wanting to discover a major guitarist."[2]
