As I said in my review of the other Box Set, this is excellent. Back in the day when Tubby was still alive I got the impression, he hadn't made many records well over 18 discs is well enough over his recording history. Again this doesn't disappoint,Excellent quality stuff.
Tubby was a brilliant musician, he played tenor, flute and vibes with equal facility. His immensely complicated solos were a product of great technique/musicianship. He and Ronnie were a great delight to us jazz people when the Couriers were abroad. I'm 81 now but going on 20 so I still marvel at them and English jazz in general. Great to have this set on my Fire tablet.
