Wolfgang’s Vault: The Tubes @ Winterland (1975)

This show, staged at Winterland in the band’s hometown of San Francisco, on February 21st, 1975, a few months before the release of their self-titled debut album in June of that year, clearly shows the great energy that the Tubes had at this early point in their career.

    We need a new Tubes album, maybe Todd Rundgren can produce? – after he’s finished producing the new New York Dolls album, of course.
