EDITORS’ NOTES

The albums in this collection are Mastered for iTunes with the exception of Recycler which is a standard album. This 2013 collection of ZZ Top's first 10 albums recorded for Warner Brothers over their first 20 years have been Mastered for iTunes (with exception of 1990's Recycler). This also includes the original LP mixes of ZZ Top's First Album, Rio Grande Mud, and Tejas, which have been unavailable since the CD age. Before their unexpected rash of successes in the '80s, ZZ Top had been one of the heaviest blues bands to come out of Texas. Billy Gibbons is a well-acknowledged guitarist whose limited vocals—and those of bassist Dusty Hill—served the band well throughout their long career. Tunes such as "Jesus Just Left Chicago," "La Grange," "Heard It on the X," and "Tush" were textbook rock 'n' roll blues for the '70s. With 1983's Eliminator, ZZ Top made the jump from respected rock 'n' rollers to mainstream MTV superstars with the "modern" '80s productions driving hits like "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," and "Legs."
