This major release is a previously unavailable live performance from a great Tubby Hayes lineup that never made a commercially available album. Recorded on 5th December 1968 by Ted Lyons at the legendary Hopbine in North Wembley, The Syndicate 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 now fills an aching gap in Hayes’ discography and our understanding of his remarkable musical journey.
