5.0 out of 5 stars Degüello live, 25 Sep 2013

This review is from: Lucky Thirteen (Audio CD)
This is yet another in the seemingly endless series of American radio broadcasts of live concerts released on grey area labels in Europe - in this case Smokin', which is a new one to me though quite possibly simply a new name for an existing company.

And it's one of the best I've encountered so far: it's a proper concert with a loud and enthusiastic audience rather than 20 people invited to a studio; the sound quality is excellent - the grunginess is reproduced with clarity, if you like, you can hear the size of the room and it's not too compressed; and the performance is very fine too, with lots of audience interaction on a testifyin' Fool For Your Stockings. The set, recorded at the Capitol Theater, Passaic, NJ on 15 June 1980 by King Biscuit Flour Hour (coyly referred to on the sleeve as KBFH FM) is a pruned version of the one from Rockpalast a couple of months earlier - it relies very heavily on then-current album Degüello, with 8 of the 13 tracks taken from that album, 2 apiece from Tres Hombres (no La Grange, sadly) and Fandango and 1 from Tejas. Incidentally, this seems to be the same concert as was used for at least some of the bonus live tracks added to the remasters of Tres Hombres and Fandango some years back - if the others were from this concert too, then this CD is missing versions of Heard It On The X and La Grange. But interestingly, the sound quality is better here.

So if you like ZZ Top at all, this is a very good live recording that you can buy with confidence, and if you're particularly a fan of Degüello, which is after all one of their best albums, you're in for a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars jail house rock.... Rocks!!, 24 Oct 2013

Wow what an album, from the vocals to the guitar riffs. Absolutely brilliant, for any fan of guitar rock this is a must. This Album is all live music from their early years every tune would appeal to any body liking rock music, but Jail House Rock did it for me. Made me feel like getting a chair and rocking with it

ZZ Top are keeping the Texas guitar sound going. I have several of their CD's and generally like to drive with one on loud. I recommend this CD.
