ZZ Top – Tres Hombres

41ip0kfdhhl-_sx425_

I knew I wasn’t going to finish this list without putting ZZ Top on somewhere. The question was, which album do I begin with?

I knew it had to be pre-Eliminator, as, while there are things about that album I really like, it’s not the sound that hooked me on the Top in the first place.

And if that’s the true impetus—identifying the thing that hooked me first—then it had the be the album that contained within its grooves the move from Waiting for the Bus to Jesus Just Left Chicago. Cuz that shit is incredible …

And yeah, La Grange is on here too, so that’s a pretty significant cut in the whole Top canon …

But honestly, the whole thing just has boot heel stink written all over it, and that’s just all right with me …
