After five albums on A&M, The Tubes signed with Capitol Records for 1981's The Completion Backward Principle, which teamed them up with producer David Foster for the group's most commercially successful (and radio-friendly) release to that point, with two hit singles in the power ballad, "Don't Want to Wait Anymore" (their first to land in the Top 40 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart) and the catchy Top 10 Rock radio anthem, "Talk to Ya Later." "David had just produced Earth, Wind & Fire's Boogie Wonderland, and we loved that album," says frontman Fee Waybill about the approach on the very funk-flavored The Completion Backward Principle, which also includes the beach party set piece, "Sushi Girl," the Steely Dan-ish "Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman," the R&B workout "Power Tools" and the stadium classic in waiting, "Let's Make Some Noise." Gatefold, colored 180g vinyl LP pressing from Friday Music.
