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."
