    Just one note of caution. In the late 80's the early albums were re-released under the title Six Pack, for which the percussion was "treated" in the same style as Eliminator and Afterburner in an attempt to replicate their commercial success. To my ears it's a clunky remix of the old and the new and best avoided.

    Absolutely correct.
    The Six Pack set was remixed and DDL/reverb used

    The earlier albums on this set did not receive the same treatment - they're the original mixes https://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-St...eywords=zz+top

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Marillion were rubbish, and Metallica had yet to record their first (and possibly only) decent album ....
    I only remember the names that began with 'M', and I was a bit dazed and confused that day. I agree about Marillion. I didn't see much of them, I went for a shit or something.

    Love em, got a 1st pressing of Tres Hobres and Rio Grand Mud and Eliminator , no one plays the blues like Billy Gibbons, i'm not saying he's the best blues guitarist of all time but he's definitely up there and you know straight away who's playing. The last album they did back in 2012 was brilliant La Futura was one of their best for my money.

    Just been playing ZZ Top's First Album - not bad, not bad at all.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I have vinyl reissues of Deguello and Eliminator. If anyone's thinking about getting Deguello then you won't go wrong with the 2011 Rhino remaster cut by Chris Bellman. It sounds fantastic, better than the original according to a couple of Steve Hoffman members who own both. Good quality pressing too.

    Not bad?

    People think of ZZ Top and in the main think Eliminator and big beards, they're so much more than just that

    I don't even think that. I guess they'll always be the final artist in anyone's record collection (if arranged alphabetically, rather than at random like what mine is).
