I think you'll agree that all three are at their finest here. In each case, I found videos you wouldn't be able to stop watching even if you had ...

Tubby Hayes: The Syndicate - Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1

Read "The Syndicate - Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Out of all the Tubby Hayes archival releases over the past few years, this one should by rights generate more than passing interest for several reasons.
