This 2xLP set is actually a reissue of The Way I Really Play and Mellow Mood, which were volumes III and V of the Exclusively For My Friends series. Makes it very confusing when I’m in a record store and trying to determine whether I’ve completed the series or not. (I have not – still looking for Action and The Lost Tapes).

The series is drawn from recordings made in the mid-sixties by MPS label founder Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in his home studio with small private audiences. This 2xLP version credits on Oscar Peterson individually, not the trio – though the albums being re-released do include Sam Jones on bass and Bobby Durham on drums.
