The Tubes – The Tubes

The Tubes is the debut album by The Tubes In 1975. My two favourite songs on this album is “White Punks on Dope” and “What Do You Want From Life”.

I had this album originally on 8 track which dried out and broke. In April 2018 my son in law and I were walking down Selma Ave in Los Angeles and came across The Record Parlour which sells used albums and more. I was looking through boxes and boxes of used records and low and behold I found this baby.

It’s a great album with lots of different unique sounds, each song reminds me of other bands.

Side One

1 “Up from the Deep” (The Tubes, Ray Trainer) – 4:28

2 “Haloes” (Al Kooper, Bill Spooner, Roger Steen) – 4:53

3 “Space Baby” (Bill Spooner, Mike Carpenter, Vince Welnick) – 4:25

4 “Malagueña Salerosa” (Pedro Galindo, Elpidio Ramirez) – 3:52

Side Two

1 “Mondo Bondage” (The Tubes) – 4:34

2 “What Do You Want from Life?” (Bill Spooner, Michael Evans) – 4:01

3 “Boy Crazy” (Bill Spooner) – 4:09

4 “White Punks on Dope” (Bill Spooner, Roger Steen, Michael Evans) – 6:49

Led Zeppelin III painting

This was a painting featured at the Archlight Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunset Blvd. It’s 48″square and I’m guessing done with acrylics. Excellent job on the piece and the album is another classic from the band. Sorry about the artist I can’t make out the name on the card beside the painting.
