"‘The A&M Years’ is a 5 CD, 59 track round up of The Tubes time with A&M Records between 1975-79, which includes the self titled debut album which gave them a worldwide hit in ‘White Punks On Dope’. Each disc comes in a replica cardboard wallet of its original LP artwork. Follow ups ‘Young And Rich’, ‘Now’, and the Todd Rundgren produced ‘Remote Control’. Always a sensational live act, the in-concert album ‘What Do You Want From Live’ completes the set. Housed in a sturdy box, each disc comes in a replica cardboard wallet of its original LP artwork along with a booklet containing pictures of all the records plus in-depth liner notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Everley."
Candyman is the second solo album from Steve Lukather. It was a collaboration of musicians who were for the most part also in Lukather's band Los Lobotomys. Toto familiars Simon Phillips and David Paich participated as well as David Garfield, John Pêna, Chris Trujillo, Lenny Castro, Larry Klimas, Fee Waybill, Richard Page and Paul Rodgers. Lukather recorded the album in mostly live takes with little overdubbing.
Two early albums by The Tubes - Young And Rich (1976) and Now (1977) - are being issued as a double CD set. It's a joy to hear these albums, which have been out of print for quite a while. This material is much more interesting than that huge hit, "She's A Beauty," the song the band is most known for. Nothing against "She's A Beauty," of course - I always dug that song - but it's more standard fare compared to the songs on these albums.
