At one time there was a three LP or CD set of Hayes in the works. The
engineering was done in Steve Fassett's studio in Boston . It was compiled
by Phil Miller. Both are now passed. Eventually it came out as one LP (or
CD- don'r remember any more.) Though Phil and I correspoinded and phoned
about it, I have no paperwork in my files about this project with any
detail. I think Phils papers may have gone to the New York Public Library.
