Blows Away the Cobwebs....
on 22 June 2012
Though not a real fan of ZZ Top, occasionally a blast of this very good 'Best Of' compilation dislodges the ear wax and satisfies my craving for heavy, southern-based rock.
Some tracks are more commercial and can be heard in pubs up and down the country as bands (& audiences) love them, to cover and to rock along to. There's also quite a wide variety to their playing, they're not all 'Gimme All Your Loving', many here being more bluesy (check out Cheap Sunglasses, for some great instrumental playing).
This 18 track CD does all I want it to - and was good value. There may be better compilations out there and true devotees will always point to seminal original albums, but for the casual dropper-in on the loud beardy guys, this is perfect.
