The disc, originally issued in a limited edition on producer Mike Vernon’s mail-order-only Purdah label, features a pair of spare duo performances: the loping Mayall composition 'Lonely Years' and the rousing Clapton-penned instrumental 'Bernard Jenkins'. Both sides were recorded in October 1965, a few months before the Blues Breakers LP, but released shortly after the album. These two rare vintage gems, sourced from the original mono masters, capture both of these legendary blues masters in an intimate, stripped-down setting.
