Tubby Hayes - The Complete Fontana Albums (September 27, 2019)

239 posts in this topic

As I said elsewhere, the 2 CD version has an explicit content sticker & says made in the Czech Republic.  Strange!!

I believe there is some salty language after a breakdown.  I didn't have it turned up high enough to really catch what was said.

The ‘F’ word I believe - interjection from Tubbs. By typical present day standards, pretty mild.

Simon, are these in mono or stereo?  I once had the CBS CD, and if I recall it was stereo.  But earlier in this thread it's indicated as a mono issue in the 12 CD set.

Ted, Tubbs in N.Y. was originally released on Fontana but "illegally" reissued on CBS 466363 in stereo as Tubby Hayes with Clark Terry "The New York Sessions". I'm currently listening to said stereo version reissued on CD as CBS 466363 2. So why the stereo tapes are missing is a mystery. Shame because the album is superb. However and notwithstanding the mono NY session, I'm still greatly looking forward to the complete Fontana Tubbs box set, especially the much maligned "The Orchestra", never previously reissued.

‘Tubbs in NY’ most definitely came out on Fontana in the stereo version - my copy is in stereo.

I remember seeing a copy of that CBS version in vinyl as well as on CD.

Will this be available through Amazon in the U.S., or just Dusty Groove? Recommendations on the best online source for purchasing it? Right now I’m leaning towards Dusty Groove, but waiting to see if it pops up on Amazon in the next few weeks. Surprised not to see it there yet, given its 9/27 release date.

With releases like this - with back stories that set the context and give the music its correct chronological position in the artists discography - I think how you buy is a big factor. 

I like packaging, background, photos, the feel of a definitive 'product.'

But I would say that wouldn't I? 😎

Totally in your camp, Simon! Thanks for all of your work regarding Mr. Hayes. I’m definitely in on the CD box set.

Any sign of this set's availability yet beyond the UDiscover link?  Still not seeing it up for pre-order at Dusty Groove or on Amazon USA/UK.

Do they still use THAT bashful term TODAY to avoid turning red in the face by stating outright what it is? Vulgar? Obscene (maybe)? :lol: Back to the puritan Eisenhower era? Seriously??

As if the word "explicit" did not have enough other widespread and perfectly appropriate meanings in the English language ... My, my ...

Dusty Groove doesn't do pre-orders but you can sign up to be notified when the product goes live on their site.

My understanding is that the set is now delayed to November.

Right--I'm definitely signing up for that, thanks much.

Much appreciation for the update--I'll recalibrate my budget for November, in that case.  Really looking forward to this set.

Really? Can’t see any mention on the Universal site of any delay. I was hoping to see a mail package at my door this Fri 27th or thereabouts. :huh:

I rang Ray’s Jazz to check if they’d have it in stock on Friday and that’s what they told me.

I don't know how long it will take my set to get to me, but I'm looking forward to it.

It is strange that the udiscovermusic site is still saying ‘release date 27th Sept’. Maybe there is a bit of a backlog so that dealer deliveries are a bit delayed until they have fulfilled the on-line direct orders. That’s my hope anyway !

Update - Universal now showing release date 6th Dec. So Rays Jazz were being optimistic !  On the plus side, hopefully it will be on the streets by Xmas. ;)

So, considering these preorders are fully charged already, it becomes a subscription service with us financing the project. Just sayin'.

Is that really so? I was going to go out to look for it tomorrow after my smartphone reminded me of its release date on Sept. 27, which I had already forgotten.

One is waiting for me at Jazz Messengers, the brick and mortar shop. It's reserved. Then I'll have it before December 6th. :huh:

That was an error on the part of the manager of the store. I've been there today to pick up my box, but surprise! it wasn't there. Only the Grits, Beans and Greens double CD, as I had already feared (the quoted price was more in line with a double than with a 12 CD box). But as the cover is the same she thought it was what I had mentioned and she kept it apart for me. As I was already there she asked the Purchases manager who told her there was no news about that box. So, again I'll have to wait until December 6th, at least...
