The Tubes
Outside Inside

Commercial success had finally arrived for The Tubes with the release of The Completion Backward Principle. The rock radio airplay and Top 40 success generated by that release set the stage for a return to the studio with producer David Foster attempting to recapture the magic for Outside Inside.

The band did not disappoint as the album came screaming out of the gate with "She's A Beauty," the biggest hit the band would ever have. The single went Top 10 and was a #1 rock record so the band now had both sides of the FM/AM radio dial fully covered, as well as MTV. The funky follow-up single "Tip Of My Tongue" also enjoyed chart success and the album featured those excellent album tracks that we had come to expect from The Tubes, several of which remain in their current set list to this day.

This expanded edition of the album includes all new mastering and a new essay with fresh interviews with the band members. The release is expanded with four bonus tracks including single B-sides, single versions and the ultra rare Tubes version of "Satellite."
