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

Oh, man! Remember when we'd sit there watching Whispering Bob on the New Year's Eve 'Old Grey Whistle Test Special' and phoning in to make sure 'Gimme All Your Lovin,' 'Sharp Dressed Man' or 'Legs' won the video vote? Then one year, (this was before we had video recorders in the home, wasn't it?), Bob played all 3 in a row! I mean, Lynyrd Skynyrd won enough times with 'Freebird,' now it was ZZ's turn, and what classic tracks and videos they were and still are!
On Disc one we have the 'Eliminator' album for the first 11 tracks, as per usual, and is it OUR age NOW or don't these tracks date? They sound as fresh as they did 25 year's ago! Track 12 is 'Legs' single version / bonus track, 13 to 17 are Live, previously unreleased bonus tracks, and then a dance mix of 'Legs,' which is fun and just knockout!
Disc 2 is the DVD with those 3 'Whistle Test' classics plus 'TV Dinners.' Then, and this will make everyone just Click To Buy if you haven't decided to already, four Live tracks from ZZ's performance on 17th November 1983 on 'The Tube.'
Now, we probably got the vinyl disintegrating there in the LP box, and the original CD caked in dust by now, but just click the button, THIS IS THE PUPPY YOU NEED for the 21st Century; you'll be 25 year's younger by the time you've played this a few times!

Most people reading this review will already know enough about the album itself, a 5* eighties masterpiece. What they'll be wondering is 'Is it worth forking out for the deluxe edition?'. The answer is yes, just about. The remastering does wonders for the sound, it just blasts out of your speakers. It brings the whole sound alive and makes you ask the above question (Come on Rhino lets get Tejas, Deguello and El Loco remastered). But what about the extras. Well, the cd extras are hardly essential. Do we really need two extra versions of Legs, especially a Dance Mix (Lets face it those eighties dance Mixes were an abomination and this is no exception). The live tracks are not much better, recorded at the Marquee and Donnington, the sound is fairly rough after the excellence of the main album (There must have been some decently recorded gigs on the Eliminator Tour). That brings us to the DVD. First up the promotional videos. Who can forget those. Ahh, how time can distort our memories. In '83 they looked so cool. Now they look pretty tacky, and those eighties styles just look horrible. The TV Dinners video fairs better though with some morf like animation. Finally onto the last 4 videos, taken from the Tube. These are worth it. By this time they'd been touring the album for quite some time and were tighter than a pair of Def leppards spandex. This really is worth seeing especially Tube Snake Boogie which was never broadcast. Overall then, a 5* album with 3* extras. Buy it for the much improved sound & Tube videos. Do what I did, get it cheap off the amazon marketplace.

Format: Audio CD
Released on LP and Cassette in March 1983 on Warner Brothers, the blues boogie of "Eliminator" was an absolute phenomenon for the Texas trio ZZ Top.

They'd been bubbling under for years - "La Grange" in 1973, "Tush" in 1975 - and a minor hit with "I Thank You" in 1980. But none of it even remotely indicated what would happen in 1983 and 1984. "Eliminator" - one of the best boogie albums ever made - changed everything for them and us - it was little short of absolute global domination.

It was a combination of things - the umpteen tracks that were all single/radio friendly hits, the emergence of rotation MTV, the videos with leggy sexy babes - the fabulous 1956 coupe car - the ZZ TOP keyring flying through the air to the hapless buck trying to be a 'sharp dressed man' - the image of dusty dudes with beards - all of it combined in one heady mix to produce domestic sales in the USA topping 10 million with the same number estimated for the rest of the world. And if you take into account second-hand sales since that heady time 25 years ago and an early issue on CD, you're looking at a "Rumours", a "Purple Rain" and a "Thriller". This September 2008 (delayed release) has it good points and bad though...

Eliminator was the real deal back then but to be re-issued with the added bonus of a few decent if patchy live tracks of their best hits and a dvd of their tube fame is worth the money alone but its a mystery why its no longer selling on amazon since it has not been issued as a limited collectors edition.

Back to the album the sound quality alone has improved a lot unlike the older eliminator album where having to turn the volume up to 11 meant only hearing the finished product at half strength whilst the legs single version is re-introduced in all of its extended glory giving the album a welcome shot in the arm which is still a hit with songs to match like "You got the six, "Give me all your lovin", "Sharp Dressed man" etc but like i say about the three bonus live recordings they sound relatively patchy whilst the dance version of legs is decent but virtually a track that should have been left off the album as its mainly dominated by bleeps and virtually no lead guitar from Billy Gibbons.

But the dvd is a added bonus seeing the three sharp dressed men tearing it up for great viewing pleasure live on the tube whilst the video's to gimme all you lovin, sharp dressed men, legs and tv dinners are hilarious beyond belief.

Of course there are other albums like tres hombres that are highly regarded above any of zz tops eighties albums but atleast this one is better than any of the later stuff they made that failed to recapture their former glory.
