I have been listening to Lenny Breau since 1972 when I was just fourteen-years previous. I was immediately spellbound when I first listened to him. Even with my younger age, I felt the depth of his songs . . . so deep it could fill the ocean. His music led me and I adopted like a servant, learning his fashion from his recordings . . . lifting the needle of the best portable turntables with speakers up and down as I hung on to Lenny’s each chord and attempted to perform them.
During this time I did some severe begging to countless family members members. We finally convinced two of them to loan us $400 to put on to a bankcard to lease a vehicle to generate home to Chicago.

Do you keep in mind that terrible scratching audio when you really picked up the needle from the record and unintentionally scratched it prior to you lifted?
