Part of the Universal Play 33 1/3 Series. All series albums are first-time 180-gram vinyl releases that were first issued as CDs between 1992 and 2010. This subtle, sublime collaboration finds bassist Charlie Haden and guitarist Pat Metheny crafting bejeweled chamber duets that transcend genre. With their shared Missouri lineage as a thematic touchstone, Haden and Metheny forge a lyrical, mostly acoustic style at once intimate and expansive. Both pare their playing to a Zen-like economy, focusing on a purity of tone, clarity of harmony, and counterpoint to achieve a tender lyricism.

Worst pressing

Reviewer: from Canada
Sonically it is very good but the quality of the pressing is awful with lots of pops, ticks. I even returned but the second copy had the same problem. If you look at the brand new record, you can see right away that it has a lot of paper cuts, dust... It is a general issue with 331/3 label as I have the same problem with other albums from this label. With the very expensive price, they should afford a better QA person. It is frustrating because I love the album and it sounds very good.

One my favorite

As an album top 10 nominee. Cd version is fantastic. Lp version could be better, but this is the only and one lp version. Have it anyway...

Disappointed by these pressings!

The pressing isn't worth the premium price. Sure the sonics are great and the vinyls are heavy but the nicks and light scuffs that pop and click along break up the quiet beauty of the album.
