4.0 out of 5 stars the lone wolf howls tonight!!!!, 16 April 2013
This review is from: Deguello (Audio CD)
Yeah, Yeah I know all about "eliminator", I know about that car, the videos, the girls, the beards but c'mon what about the real ZZ Top? I am talking about a band that before thier career exploded in 1983/84 with the aforementioned hit machine that was "eliminator" were little more than an underground almost cult band in europe and a band considered past thier sell by date in thier native America ( home state of Texas excluded!).
This 1980 release recorded by the band after nearly three years away from the studio is simply a classic! a finely grafted blues/rock record with a funky edge in places which for me is without doubt thier finest work along with the 1973 release "tres hombres".

A smooth, groovy record without any doubt "i thank you" , "cheap sunglasses", "fool for your stockings" a great cover of the elmore james tune "dust my broom" , nothing against "eliminator" it is a great record and brought the guys richly deserved success across the globe but the sheer class of this recording shines through nearly 31 years since i first heard it.

Ok? get it, Beards? check, sense of humour? check, great songs? check, top notch playing? check...

Deguello by the way is Mexican for "no quarter" I believe? some Alamo connection? Well the band show us no mercy with this record believe you me - now get yourself lowdown in the street!!!!!
