The CBS Tapes by The Rubinoos on Yep Roc Records

The Rubinoos - The CBS Tapes


  • £12.99

Recorded at CBS Studios in San Francisco in 1976, before they were signed to the legendary Beserkley Records, The CBS Tapes captures the Rubinoos as the scrappy, bratty kids they were. It also shows the huge talent and energy of a young band near the beginning of their career, who believed they were unstoppable. 

This never before released recording includes their cover of future label-mate Jonathan Richman’s 'Government Center,' The Ventures' 'Walk Don't Run' and a 'Pepsi Generation,' commercial jingle, along with several Rubinoos originals.
