Tubby Hayes Quartet, Grits, Greens and Beans: The Lost 1969 Studio Sessions (Decca U.K.)

1CD: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada
2CD: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada
1LP: Amazon U.S. / Amazon U.K. / Amazon Canada

Here’s a major discovery from the late, London-born saxophonist.  Around the same time he was busy recording MOR covers, Tubby Hayes was still indulging his artistic side by playing in a pure jazz mode for sessions held May and June 1969.  Hayes, Mike Pyne (piano), Ron Mathewson (bass), and Spike Wells (drums) cut a number of Hayes originals plus covers of Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh’s haunting “Where Am I Going?” and Duke Pearson’s “You Know I Care.”  But the tapes have languished in Universal’s U.K. vaults…until now.  Grits, Greens and Beans will be released in 1CD, 2CD, and LP formats, as mastered by Gearbox Studios.  The single CD has what would have been the final album while the 2CD version preserves all of the session takes.  The 180-gram vinyl edition of the 1CD release was created using an original 1960s-era Studer tape machine and a Scully lathe.  The CD appears to be encoded in the MQA format (playable on all CD players).

I believe I'll wait for the 2 CD version (out in mid-August).

The "Deluxe" two CD version is very good, but crucially it contains three takes featuring guitarist Louis Stewart on CD 1 and 40 pages of sleeve note by Simon Spillett. It also includes out takes and engineer / Hayes pre-take words (not much, there isn't any conversation per se).

Received the 2 CD version today.

It says made in the Czech Republic & also has an explicit content sticker. I thought those were both strange.
