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.

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

Rock Covers by Taschen books

I received this book as a Fathers Day gift from my daughter. 

There are approximately 750 rock covers in this book ranging from well known bands and the very obscure. Cover album is Pink Floyd and the back cover is Joe Cocker.

I’ve got many record albums in my collection that are highlighted in this book. The interesting part of this book is the number of bands from the 70’s that I’ve never heard of. I went to iTunes to look some of them up and the bands are very excellent and now I want to buy some online.
