ZZ Top - Review (Plus 100 Series) download album
ZZ Top really sounds young and different than they do today. I think this album shows their inexperience, but there are a few songs that I love on this album. That inexperience is actually a good thing. They're just playing the blues the "old-time" rock way. There is only a hint of the ZZ Top personality there. But Certified Blues and Brown Sugar are great songs. There's also some almost country sound to a couple of songs.
The remixing gave these releases a sound similar to Eliminator. The resulting remixes were also reissued on the standalone compact disc releases of the albums
ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. As a group, ZZ Top possesses 11 gold records and 7 platinum (13 multi-platinum) records; their 1983 album, Eliminator, remains the group's most commercially successful record, selling over 10 million units. ZZ Top also ranks 80th in . album sales, with 25 million units.
The first two albums especially (‘ZZ Top’s First Album’ and 1972’s ‘Rio Grande Mud’) are loose, hazy and scattered. The trio didn’t really find focus until their terrific third outing, 1973’s ‘Tres Hombres,’ which sounds big, full and powerful in the remastered version here. So do most of the immediate follow-ups to that breakthrough album. By the time ZZ Top entered the ‘80s, they were ready for a change.

The following is a comprehensive discography of ZZ Top, an American blues rock band. Over the years they have released fifteen studio albums, four live albums, seven compilation albums and forty-four singles. ZZ Top has sold over 25 million albums in the US with additional sales internationally. ZZ Top has also promoted sales with several international tours including the Grugahalle in Essen, Germany where Double Down Live was recorded and subsequently released as a live compilation.
ZZ Top's First Album may not be perfectly polished, but it does establish their sound, attitude, and quirks. Simply put, it's a dirty little blues-rock record, filled with fuzzy guitars, barrelhouse rhythms, dirty jokes, and Texan slang. They have a good, ballsy sound that hits at gut level, and if the record's not entirely satisfying, it's because they're still learning how to craft records - which means that they're still learning pacing as much as they're learning how to assemble a set of indelible material.
Six Pack is a compilation album released in 1987 by the American blues rock band ZZ Top. The compilation encompasses the first five studio albums by ZZ Top plus El Loco into a three-disc set. All of the albums, except El Loco and the live tracks from Fandango! were remixed with 1980s percussion. This was done due to the success of the albums Eliminator and Afterburner, on which the band had found success by using such percussion.
