Recorded in 1959

Over the past decade there has been a small avalanche of previously unreleased live recordings by the late, great Tubby Hayes, arguably the UKs most accomplished post-war jazz instrumentalist and a figure already accorded - quite rightly - legendary status. Each has added much to our knowledge of Tubby's musical activities outside the recording studio, but this new release unearths a session which had lain forgotten since 1959 and which significantly is an addendum to what has long been seen as Tubby's first album masterpiece Tubby's Groove. Indeed the music contained on this LP is among the most significant pieces of British jazz history to have been discovered in a long, long time.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Pure Pleasure LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas.
