I absolutely agree with the review below, this is the essential ZZ Top album, yet it was always only available on CD with absolutely dreadful '80s mastering. This version sounds fantastic - back to the gorgeous natural warmth of the vinyl version. Buy it now and destroy your other CD copy.

But those live bonus tracks, they are terrible. Very cruddy. Why oh why do remastered CDs always seem to have to include a bunch of terrible live bonus tracks that no-one wants and which, as the reviewer below says, just leave a nasty taste at the end of a classic album. I was going to knock off a star for this but just couldn't bring myself to, Tres Hombres is too good for 4 stars!

Now, please remaster the other early albums which received the same '80s hatchet job..

A great place to start the remastered series of ZZ Top albums. The first time ZZ Tops albums came out on cd someone hammered the life out of them by adding really dodgy effects to the drum sound. Not so this time. The albums sound like they were recorded last week and have surpassed the original vinyl. The rhythm section are in stunning, nay telepathic, form on this outing.

The extra tracks are a mixed blessing. I reckon they ought to have been put onto an album of their own along with the live tracks from Fandango. They were recorded, if memory serves correctly, in the Capital Theatre, Passiac, New Jersey 1980. I have heard a couple of different bootlegs of this show and these do not sound as good on bootleg as they do here.

Overall a must buy album for lovers of good rockin' music.

I've owned the vinyl version of Tres Hombres since it was first released. I never get tired of listining to this one. Later ZZ Top material started sounding tired but this baby just sizzles like the fajitas pictured inside the album cover. La Grange, Waiting for the bus and Jesus just left Chicago are the strongest tracks in my opinion. This is a must have for any blues-rock fans, the wonderful tones that Gibbons achieves against the solid backing of Hill and Beard is heaven sent. Cream, Taste, Groundhogs...however you like your trios you won't find better than the Top!

This is one of the finest albums I own, I have it on vinyl and CD, and to be honest I prefer the vinyl version, the mix is better. That and there's a much needed pause after "Hot, Blue & Righteous" where you flip the disc over. I think that's one of the under rated masterpieces of ZZ Top.
I think the way this album takes you from the raucus foot stompin of "Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers" to the really soft bluesy stuff that tugs on the heart strings was a sure sign that this was a band that'd go places, and places they have gone, and those places are good.
This is not just essential to a ZZ Top collection, but this album deserves a place in any rock & roll collection. If you have acess to a turn table it's worth getting the older ZZ Top stuff on vinyl too, if for nothing other than "collecting's" sake.

By freewheeling frankie TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Dec. 2006

This 1973 classic was where ZZ Top hit the big time, at least in the USA and especially in their native Texas. Unquestionably their finest album so far, they only really equalled it with Eliminator a decade later. Suffice to say that it contains two of their very greatest tracks in the scorching boogie of La Grange and the awesome blues-rock of Jesus Just Left Chicago, plus several more excellent tunes that beat anything on most of their later albums, including the gospel-fired Have You Heard, quality rockers Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers and Move Me On Down The Line and the opening Waiting For The Bus. Even the filler is pretty good and you unfortunately can't say that about most ZZ Top albums. The whole album is full of some of the best blues-rock guitar-playing you'll ever hear, from the widely underrated Billy Gibbons, and the rhythm section of Dusty Hill and Frank Beard is by turns rocking, funky or just rock solid - shame so many people can't see past the beards.

Now as detailed in some of the other reviews, this remaster has restored (and improved upon) the original sound of the 1973 lp, without the horrible artificial reverb added to the drums on previous cd editions. It sounds great.

Then on top of that, you get previously unissued live versions of three of the songs on the album: Waiting For The Bus, Jesus Just Left Chicago and La Grange. The first two of these, if anything, improve on the studio versions, with a lowdown Waiting For The Bus seguing into a superbly grungy take on Jesus Just Left Chicago, while La Grange rocks convincingly despite being a little on the loose side in places.

If your only experience of ZZ TOP is post ELIMINATOR then I recommend this if only to hear them at at a time when the majority hadn't,raw bluesy and with a soul.There's a lot of rants online regarding the glitch on track 8 but having listened and on a very high quality seperates system all I can say is some people need to get out more.Yes there is a blip about a tenth of a second where it sounds like the drummer misses a beat this is a flaw in the recording but to be honest unless you are completely obsessive its no big deal and does'nt detract from what is otherwise a well remastered album most people wont even spot it and I find it hard to understand why people feel the need to write A4 size rants in capital letters on forums regarding it.Anyway im in danger of ranting about people that rant so in summary for 4 quid its a bargain not to be missed.
