EDITORS’ NOTES

This collection focuses on the period when ZZ Top started trading some of their boogie-rock swagger and bluesy grit for a sleeker, more highly produced approach. When they started incorporating electronics into their sound on '80s smashes like "Legs" and "Sleeping Bag," the veteran Texas trio earned a whole new audience. But while Greatest Hits doesn't include much from the band's early albums, it does feature the most iconic tunes from the Top's blues-rock era: the marvelously mud-encrusted, John Lee Hooker–esque "La Grange" and the slide guitar-slashed shuffle "Tush." Adding two new tracks broadens the album's appeal even further.

Duck Die-nasty? Are ya kidding?

If you have to chose just one ZZ Cd, this is the one. Superb! To equate them w/ducks just cuz of the beards? What a joke. Obviously, a comment by someone with NO idea just who ZZ Top is and has been for 40 years.

"As good as it gets"

I have been listening to and a fan of ZZ Top since 1972 and to me this CD defines 40 years of their best music. It is all here: If I had to own one party hell raising album , this is it. The first 30 seconds of Gun Love played at max volume is worth the cost of the record !
