Against a backdrop of political corruption as the American public were still coming to terms with the Watergate scandal and the resultant resignation of President Nixon, one of the country's first satirical rock bands exploded from the San Francisco music scene with their 1975 self-titled debut album.

Over the course of the following ten years, The Tubes enhanced their reputation by delivering critically acclaimed albums such as 'Young And Rich' and the Todd Rundgren produced 'Remote Control'. Singles such as 'Prime Time' made the UK Top 40 and 'She's A Beauty' from the FM friendly 'Outside Inside' album hit the top slot of the US Mainstream Rock charts.

For the 1985 'Love Bomb' album Rundgren returned once more to oversee production duties. And whilst tracks such as, 'Piece By Piece' and 'Come As You Are' mirrored the slick commercial potential of previous fare, side two of the album flew in the face of what fans had by now come to expect, and its uninterrupted dance-a-thon-mash-up, though a decade ahead of its time, was just a dub-step too far and 'Love Bomb' fell short in commercial terms. For this Re-mastered Collector's Edition, two new tracks to the CD format have been added with the 7" Single edit of the superb 'Piece By Piece' and a Single B-side alternative mix of 'Night People' edited together with 'Night People (Reprise)'.
