The Tubes were true American rock & roll originals who appeared to be headed for permanent cult-band status and a footnote for the minor hit "White Punks on Dope."

Overview

The Tubes were true American rock & roll originals who appeared to be headed for permanent cult-band status and a footnote for the minor hit "White Punks on Dope." However, having signed with Capitol at the beginning of the '80s, the group enjoyed a couple of successful albums, several radio hits, and a solid profile on the fledgling MTV. The Best of the Tubes culls material from the band's most commercially viable Capitol releases when the band worked with producers David Foster and Todd Rundgren. It contains such radio hits as the energetic Top Ten "She's a Beauty," the horn-laden "Tip of My Tongue," and the pop-crunch of "Piece By Piece." The set is fleshed out with some of the band's better album tracks like "Sushi Girl" and "Talk to Ya Later." The licensing and inclusion of some earlier tracks would have been nice, but for the casual fan, The Best of the Tubes is an excellent collection of their best-known and most accessible music.
