Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of ZZ Top's great gifts is its concision; even in the side-long-jam era of the 1970s, the Texans almost always fit 10 cuts on their albums. Surveying two decades of their output, Greatest Hits isn't the perfect overview you might expect, but it's still a pretty darn good driving album. The disc goes easy on the pre-Deguello stuff surveyed on their earlier best-of, and seems to digitally boost the drums on tracks like the 1975 "Tush". Still, later cuts like "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide" and "My Head's in Mississippi" are full-on triumphs of this trio's very weird, very blues-drenched sensibility. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars Brings back Memories Dec 7 2013
By Roller
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD brings back memories of ZZ Top, a band that was big in the 80's. The Musical style of ZZ Top is quite distinct and memorable for the time. Many of the Songs on this CD. "Legs" & "Sharp Dressed Man" made for very Memorable Videos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply ZZ Best , All Hitzz and no mizzes! July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
ZZ Top- Greatest Hits(1992).
Right around the beginning of MTV, one band in particular, ZZ Top, took advantage of Music Videos, blending humor with a catchy mix of Southern, Blues, and Arena Rock, instantly propelled them into superstardom. The infectious trio was comprised of Billy Gibbon(Vocals and Guitar), Frank Beard(Drums), and Dusty Hill(Bass)who came together bymixeing addictive riffs and gravelly vocals courtesty of Gibbons, Top-Notch drumming from Beard, and catchy basslines from Hill. From the Early 70's to the Early 90's, ZZ Top was a hit machine, so it's understandable that many compilations have been made. So how does ZZ Top- Greatest Hits measure up? Read on to find out...
PROS-
-CONTAINS ALL OF ZZ TOP'S BIGGEST HITS!-When you get ZZ Top-Greatest Hits, you can be expecting such huge hits as "Sharp Dressed Man", "Tush", "Got Me Under Pressure", "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide", "Cheap Sunglasses", and many more! The sheer amount of hits is unbelieveable!
-HAS MANY UNDERRATED MASTERPIECES INCLUDED!-Non-Hits(Or Minor-Hits) such as "Rough Boy", "Pearl Necklace", "Doubleback", "Give It Up", and many more fit in right along with the huge hits!
-CHEAP!-Unlike Amazon's price, most stores carry this compilation for about 11.99$, and for this amount of songs it's a steal!
-18 SONGS, 73 MINUTES!- ZZ Top-Greatest Hits contains a HUGE amount of material, and even the most ardent of fans won't be complaining!
-2 NEW EXTRA TRACKS!- This compilation contains two new tracks "Viva Las Vegas" and "Gun Love", and unlike most Unreleased Tracks these are actually good! Bravo!
-GREAT LINER NOTES!- The CD Booklet contains an overview of ZZ Top's career plus an overview of every song on the compilation! Very Interesting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome despite the new 'Legs' June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some times an artist's re-recording of one of his/their biggest hits works out quite well, and even improves upon the original tune. Take Sammy Hagar's 'Heavy Metal' for example-- his original version was pretty rockin', but the second one was even more so! Then there's WhiteSnake's 'Here I Go Again', where they made the second effort more rockin', and less pop-ish than the initial version.
Unfortunately, ZZ Top's new 'Legs' here doesn't have the good fortune of being an improvement on the original; the new backing guitar & bass lines didn't sound as cool as the old ones. Otherwise, 'Legs v.2' ain't half-bad. And most of the other tracks, covering the group's most extensively-played from their Spanish-titled-album days up to 'Recycler', make for good drivin' tunes for those days when you're toolin' down some lonely stretch of highway whilst imagining you're drivin' that hot rod on the 'Eliminator' album at top speed. There's also 'I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide' and 'Cheap Sunglasses' for those weekend nights of cruisin' down the somewhat busy streets of the local metroplex. 'Rough Boy' is just the right mood-setter for those quiet moments of relaxed reflection. For the rock-n-roll nostalgia buffs, the group's hard-hittin' cover of 'Viva Las Vegas' makes 'the King's' version seem like elevator music in comparison. And we musn't overlook the subtle naughtiness of 'Tush', 'Tube Snake Boogie' and 'Pearl Necklace' to get one thinking of less-than-pure things.
Needless to say, I highly recommend this for the casual ZZ Top fan that enjoys the trio's most widely-played cuts from their glory days. For the original version of 'Legs', however, you need look no further than the 'Eliminator album (available at www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000002KYR/qid%3D1088123460/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/002-6699831-0404821). Otherwise, this platter is more than worth what the Amazon Marketplace sellers are askin' for it...
