Five O'clock Bells/Mo Breau

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
This compilation, consisting of two complete records originally made for the Adelphi label, showcases the talented but troubled guitarist Lenny Breau, whose drug problems caused a rather erratic career, which ended prematurely with his death in 1984. Breau introduces many of the tracks and converses with the engineer while warming up, giving the sessions an informal feel.

Still, this is an enjoyable CD that should be picked up before it disappears from sight.
