5.0 out of 5 stars great compilation
For all the fans of ZZTop, this is a great compilation of all the classic videos. The quality isn't the best there is, but the dvd is worth it and you'll enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ogger's review, 5 Dec 2007
"Last night I saw a naked cowgirl, she was floating across the ceiling."

However silly most lyrics by that little ol' band from Texas may be, it's really their up-tempo boogie vibe that makes ZZ Top the success that they were at the time of this collection's release.
Although their blues roots from the preceding decade had been almost derailed by the arrival of that behemoth commonly known as M-TV, its influence remains present, even if slighly distorted by the adolescent fantasy visuals (those directed by Tim Newman, in particular) of the promo videos: chopped cars, luscious babes, cool shades, loud guitars, and justice for the underdog with the aid of a "magical keyring" are the order of the day... tacky, trashy, cheesy, redneck, childish, unsophisticated - yet all-out fun (if you have the balls to admit it).

But, not all is typically tastelessly American: that stylish video with the space car wash features an incredible guitar solo that is, simply put, out of this world and just not darn long enough!
It's hardly surprising then that "Rough Boy" and "Stages" (both off the "Afterburner" album) always make me crank the volume, whilst the video for "Give It Up" is without a doubt the most stylish and clever of the lot.

Footnote: The video for "Sleeping Bag" features one Heather Langenkamp, fresh out of "A Nightmare On Elm Street".

2.0 out of 5 stars ZZ down, 17 Jan 2004
This review is from: Zz Top - Greatest Hits [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
The video quality is very poor, using a 4:3 format and a quality that is similar to a low quality VHS tape � ZZ Top videos deserved some extra time used in providing a better than a grainy and sometimes fuzzy image, resembling the one you get in an used VHS tape. Sound is just a normal stereo.
Extras: you get the subtitling of the songs but no other features. Hardly acceptable for a band with the history and the videos that made ZZ Top known.
The video selection in DVD is the only positive item as the greatest hits are all there, within a total of 12 videos. �Gimme all your loving�, �Sharp dressed man�, �Legs�, that I consider the best ZZ Top videos, are included. In the end you get less than one hour of music.
On a global appreciation the DVD can not achieve a positive rate. But if you are a fan of ZZ Top, craving for their videos and do not bother with image quality, it is a DVD to buy.

I have a number of their albums, several of them I bought in San Fransisco where they had more choice then. I've seen them as well in Wolverhampton of all places. What a sound they produced

5.0 out of 5 stars ZZ Top's Greatest Hits, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title tells you what you're getting and that's what you'll find here...mostly from ZZ's MTV years, so the blues purists should look elsewhere in their oeuvre.

Unlike the other reviewer, I had no problems with the disc which plays fine.

A great purchase for fans of the band..the videos from Eliminator are as good as rock videos ever got.

Don't miss their live DVDs

This review is from: Zz Top - Greatest Hits [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
well obviously if you like ZZ Top you are going to enjoy this dvd,i am an "Occasional" fan,i liked their big hits,which are all here and it's great to see again!. The only drawback to this dvd is that there is no chapter review,which is a pain because you have to skip all through the videos to find the one's you want to see.Best watched in surround sound, really loud when the neighbours and family are out (air Guitar is a must !!).
