Before hitting the road as a duo in February 2014, Andres Roots & Raul Terep had been playing together for more than ten years, most notably in Bullfrog Brown and Andres Roots Roundabout, recording with Steve Lury (UK), L.R.Phoenix (UK/FIN), El Trio (LV), Bert Deivert (USA/SWE), and Bottleneck John (SWE), and touring in Finland, Latvia and the UK.

Their first duo shows were recorded by Antti Alanko of Finland's Devil Box, leading the German critic Nathan Nörgel to note in the Wasser-Prawda webzine: "It is clear why Andres Roots is considered one of the best guitarists in his homeland and on the European underground blues scene: from start to finish, the creative tension between his instrument and Terep's drums is palpable. At times raw and to the point, at times lyrical and swinging, they perform their ideas without wasting a minute on mindless strumming."

In the Australian Rhythms Magazine, Samuel J. Fell adds: "This is a man who can play the blues... Raul Terep tears it up behind him on drums, the pair stomping and striding through a set of up-tempo, highly charged electric blues 'n' drums. There's nothing new here, but damn they do it well." And in the French Soul Bag mag, Christophe Mourot writes: "The injection of soul licks and traditional Estonian airs... turns the difficult task of a full-length instrumental concert into a happy moment where you feel you've heard as many stories as if there'd been a singer recounting them."

While those first two shows arose from necessity, Roots & Terep have continued to gig as a duo even with Roundabout back in action, and August 2014 will see the CD release of "Trad.alt.blues" - an album combining the live bootleg with two new studio cuts.
