Tubby Hayes for Fontana from 1961.
Saxophone [Tenor] - Tubby Hayes; Bass - George Duvivier; Drums - Dave Bailey ;Piano - Horace Parlan ;
Trumpet - Clark Terry;Vibraphone - Eddie Costa
Another first in blogland for this British vinyl rarity at OIR with Tubbs keeping heavy company in NYC . Apparently there was legal wrangling about who owns the masters so don't hold your breath waiting for a cd issue.The last one got pulled pronto upon release in 1990.
The swaggering "A Pint Of Bitter" was my very first exposure to Hayes back in the early 80s - I just love that tune - but the rest is just as good with flat out romps through "Opus Ocean" and "Airegin" plus a wonderfuly swinging "Soon" . Nice!

Tremendous post, many thanks.
I'm desperate to find the two albums Tubbs recorded with Paul Gonsalves -
'Just Friends' from 1964 and 'Change Of Setting' from the same period. The vinyl goes for a fortune!
For anyone who's a completist, Tubbs can be found here:

Many thanks for this Grail, Bacoso; you've come up with an amazing one here. MY first expoasure to Hayes was via Jasmine LP reissues in the early 1980s, this is a title I've looked for consistently since then. Thank you forever.

Excellent from start to finish! Muchas Gracis!

You may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
