Tubby Hayes Quartet The Syndicate: Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1 on Limited Edition 180g LP + Download
This major new release is a previously unavailable live performance from a great Tubby Hayes lineup that never made a commercially available album. Recorded on December 5th, 1968 by Ted Lyons at the legendary Hopbine in North Wembley, The Syndicate: Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1 reveals Hayes' new quartet that featured the spectacular Dublin born guitarist Louis Stewart and 22 year old drummer Spike Wells, with Kenny Baldock standing in for regular double bassist Ron Mathewson. With detailed sleeve notes by tenor saxophonist and Hayes biographer Simon Spillett, The Syndicate fills an aching gap in Hayes' discography and our understanding of his remarkable musical journey. Curated, analogue mastered and cut at Gearbox Studio.
