Product Description

Amazon.ca

En 1975, les Américains réservent un accueil plus que chaleureux à ce cinquième album de ZZ Top. Réputés pour des shows incendiaires au cours desquels leur heavy blues prenait toute sa dimension, les Texans consacrent la première moitié de Fandango à des enregistrements réalisés en public. Version torride de "Jailhouse Rock" et un medley aussi salace qu'endiablé ("Backdoor Medley") précèdent une seconde partie produite en studio qui fait la part belle à l'excellent rock gras et percutant qu'affectionne ZZ Top. Les survoltés "Heard It On The X" et "Tush", futur chouchou du public, sont deux des perles d'un disque à ranger dans les classiques du genre. --Cyril Deluermoz

Product Description

One of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll bands ever to strut the 50 States, these sharp-dressed Texas titans-Billy F. Gibbons, Frank Beard, and Dusty Hill-are a righteously hell rain' power trio boasting a 30-plus year hit-making legacy, both in the studio and at concert arenas. With their revved up blues 'n' boogie, they always make the most of their Texas birthright with with a distinctive sound that shakes up rock, blues, soul, garage-funk, Americana, and more. Nowhere is their force of nature musicianship better displayed than on these two album classics, revved up wtih red-hot bonus rarities. Warner. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sounding Fandango! Dec 9 2012
By Geee!
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
This is the Fandango! to own. Smooth & steamy sound. Better than the Rhino expanded CD (which is the best digital) & the older London vinyl I own (which is fine). This new Kevin Gray cut Warner pressing is easily my go-to.

4.0 out of 5 stars THUNDER! Sept. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't think Fandango is their best album. That said, it is probably their hardest rocking album. 'Nasty dogs adn funky kings', 'Heard it on the X' and 'Tush', how hard ot those three ROCK!!! And then you have one of my favourites, 'Balinese', and two very good songs showing the band to be great musician, 'Mexican Blackbird' and 'Blue Jean Blues' and perhaps the frist two live songs are okay and what a great album!

3.0 out of 5 stars ***. Good. Not quite great July 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Fandango" is a bit of a missed opportunity in more ways than one.
When it was first released, two years after ZZ Top's big breakthrough album, "Tres Hombres", the band must either not have had enough quality material for a full LP, or they couldn't decide between a live album and a regular studio release.
Thus, "Fandango" is split between three live songs (well, seven, actually, since one is a medley) and six studio cuts. The live portion is so-so, with somewhat mediocre sound, a good "Thunderbird", a pretty good "Jailhouse Rock", and a bland medley of four songs. Too bad, since ZZ Top already had enough excellent material in their catalogue to warrant a full live album.
The studio material is generally good. Vintage ZZ Top, with huge blooze-n-boogie riffs from the great Billy Gibbons, and a truly superb rhythm section.
"Nasty Dogs And Funky Kings" is good without being excactly memorable, "Blue Jean Baby" is an excellent slow blues, and "Balinese" is a sturdy mid-tempo rock number.
The groovy blues shuffle of "Mexican Blackbird", sung by bassist Dusty Hill, is highlighted by some smouldering slide guitar from Gibbons, and it is followed by the hardest rocker on the album, "Heard It On The X". This song is often metioned as one of ZZ Top's greatest. It's not one of my favorites, though...too fast and without feeling or groove, and with a hectic guitar riff and drum figure that becomes annoying after a very short while.
The album does end on a high note, though, with the classic "Tush" which has all the deep-dug groove you could wish for. Classic 70s blues-rock.
All in all, "Fandango" is a good album which could have been great, but the live cuts are a wasted opportunity, and there are only a couple of truly great songs among the studio material (although nothing is actually bad).
It doesn't live up to its predecessor, though.

you see one side of this album is live and the other isn't
i love the live side - you just have to hear it to believe it.
the ablum cover says it all.
but the studio side is every bit as incredible - heck, it is probably their best studio effort.
absolutely incredible album

2.0 out of 5 stars cd remix kills classic Feb. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was a great album and I had to have the cd. Unfortunatly when I recieved the disc and put it in to play, I was dissapointed to hear the studio side had been remixed. A ton of echo had been added. The drums had been remixed and the sound changed. The cymbals were burried in the mix. Small nuances that made the tracks interesting were also lost. The vocals are also covered with reverb. The original tight sound had been replaced with a muddy "hall" type sound. I have returned to listening to my cassette version of this album and feel ripped off by the cd remix. I wish I never bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great ZZ Top Album Sept. 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
FANDANGO is another great ZZ Top album. The live cuts, except for "Thunderbird", haven't aged well, but the studio tracks, particularly "Balinese" and "Heard It On The X", more than make up for them. Along with the first three albums and TEJAS, get FANDANGO at the same time.
