Five O'Clock Bells is an album by Auburn, ME born guitarist Lenny Breau, released in 1979.[1]


After signing a three-album deal with Gene Rosenthal for Adelphi Records, Breau recorded enough material over a few months in 1977. Rosenthal produced the first sessions which would become Five O'Clock Bells. Subsequent releases from these sessions were Mo' Breau and Last Sessions.[2]

Originally released on LP in 1979, it was reissued in 1987 on the Genes label and again reissued along with Mo' Breau.[1]
