Album Review

A CD accompaniment to the Eagle Rock live DVD release of ZZ Top's November 1, 2007 set at the Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie, TX, Live from Texas is one for the fans — a latter-day live record that's by no means embarrassing but not very captivating, either. The set list is hits-heavy, containing every one of the MTV hits from Eliminator and all the classic rock radio staples, all taken just a little bit slower than they were on record. That combined with the crystal clear production makes the band seem just a little bit sluggish at times, but they can still churn out a boogie — "Sharp Dressed Man" in particular cooks — and Billy Gibbons' guitar still snarls as much as his voice growls, which is enough to make this worth a listen for longtime fans.

Customer Reviews

Very Good!

I bought this DVD and I transfered the Music to CD. Very Good. I even bought the T-Shirt. The show was recorded at Grand Prarie TX. Nokia Theatre. Saw them at the USA Arena in Lubbock. The Special Features on the DVD are really cool. I'm glad to see this available on CD. This is a must have for those who are fans of Top.

At times the music is too loud and overbears the vocals making the lyrics inconsequential because you can’t hear them properly. Was really looking forward to a great ZZ TOP live experience but was unfortunately disappointed.
