Customer Review

on 22 June 2012
I have to admit I have owned this Blu Ray version of Live From Texas for a while now and it has not had much air play. Recently I have put that right with a couple of end to end viewings and my opinion; 'it is a real blast and demonstrates why ZZ Top are the blueprint for so many modern blues bands.
This DVD has an impressive set list that incorprates many of the band's timeless classics as well as the latter sheen of songs like Sharp Dressed Man, Gimme All Your Lovin and Legs.
However for me the real stand outs are TUSH, LA GRANGE, CHEAP SUNGLASSES and a way down and dirty rendition of the classic JUST GOT PAID. ZZ Top are master purveyors of southern boogie and it is incredible that just three guys can make such a full on sound. Perhaps that is also the reason messers Gibbons, Hill and Beard are as tight as one of Hill's snare drums.
These dudes play with a tongue planted firmly in the cheek, looking way to cool for 60 plus year olds, duck walking across the stage. The stage and light show is minimal, just how you want it when the music is this good.
A new ZZ Top album is on the way and I hear it has a real bluesy feel, if that is so bring it on but for now get yourself down to Texas!
