Biography

This sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums). They were formed in 1970 in and around Houston from rival bands the Moving Sidewalks (Gibbons) and American Blues (Hill and Beard). Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their third album (Tres Hombres) gained them ... Read more in Amazon's ZZ Top Store

How to follow 1979`s "Deguello", a very authentic blues affair? Well, in the years before that album Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill grew themselves (apparently independently!) enormous beards which remain their trademark to this day so they had obviously decided to try and look a bit eccentric; but with "El Loco", they decided to do something very different with their music too. For a start, synths appear, instead of front-porch John Lee Hooker-esque riffs . This is really where the 80s sound of ZZ Top - the sound that really hit the public consciousness - appeared. But rather than go for anything too overtly commercial (the follow-ups of "Eliminator", "Afterburner" and "Recycler" were clearly made with the idea of mass appeal in mind) they opted to choose some very uncommercial themes, and address them in an occasionally incoherent way! It`s like they didn`t really want to make the step...yet. Probably best-known for the controversial subject matter that is "Pearl Necklace", there are a couple of other songs that really stand-out; "Tube Snake Boogie" (more euphemisms), "Ten Foot Pole" (Billy basically mumbles his way through the song but it`s still fun), "Groovy Little Hippy Pad", and the utterly crazy but sublime nonsense that is "Heaven, Hell, or Houston", where Billy spends half the song on the telephone. I think this is what they call a "transitional" album; if you`re looking for the missing link between "Rio Grande Mud", "Tres Hombres" and "Deguello" and the band that made "Legs", "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Rough Boy", you`ve found it.

Format: Audio CD
"El Loco" is a solid collection of blooze-n-boogie from the bearded ones (and the less bearded Frank Beard), opening with one of ZZ Top's best songs, the superbly groovy "Tube Snake Boogie".
"I Wanna Drive You Home" and "Ten Foot Pole" are fine, bluesy, mid-tempo funk, followed by one of ZZ Top's very few real ballads, the nice, melodious "Leila", and the somewhat generic "Don't Tease Me" (it's not bad, it just sounds like a hundred other blues-rock numbers).
"It's So Hard" is a good slow tune, not really a ballad and not really a slow blues, but somewhere in between. And the double-entendre "Pearl Necklace" is one of the album's best rockers (and was one of the three singles lifted off "El Loco", along with "Tube Snake Boogie" and "Leila").
The album loses momentum towards the end, though, winding down with the somewhat forgettable, synth-heavy "Groovy Little Hippie Pad", the decidedly odd "Heaven, Hell or Houston" and the rockabilly-esque "Party On The Patio".
"El Loco" is not conistent enough to be a great album, but there are several excellent songs here, good enough for about 3½ stars.

El Loco is a solid album from ZZ Top, and it'd be one of my personal favourites by them. Each song on the record holds up on its own, from start to finish. The only snag to the album, is this is when ZZ Top were yet to perfect the blend between the eighties styled synth sounds and the bluesy guitar tones of Billy Gibbons. However, that being said, it's still a very strong record which manages to blend the two together in a very enjoyable way.

Contrary to popular belief this album was NOT remixed for the Six-Pack compilation. This CD IS the original mix. Newer remastered CD's aside, buy it along with Deguello and sonically stunning 1977 best of.
