T.R.A.S.H. (Tubes Rarities and Smash Hits)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Doug Stone
The Tubes' reputation or lack thereof is built on their uninhibited '70s performances, and, to a much lesser extent, on the non-hits collected on T.R.A.S.H.

Still, this collection of their A&M work is easy access to the Tube's overlooked '70s stuff, and worth a few spins.
