3.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter Nov. 11 2009
Format:DVD
Takes the boys a while to get started, especially Gibbons, but once warmed up the show picks up quite a bit. Beard is rock solid and anchors the music perfectly. The visuals are great, but the sound really is lacking. Bad definition between the guitar and bass giving the impression Hill is superfluous at times. But it's a good show and worth watching. They play most of their classic tunes. Rent it if you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars ZZ TOP GOES OVER THE TOP! July 21 2008
By Paul S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I've read a lot of press releases for bands over the years and there have been times when I wondered if the writer was talking about the same band that I was listening to, and it seemed like the bio sheet was full of bravado and prone to exaggeration, using 'catch phrases' that were stretching the truth a bit. However, the one for this band's new DVD is dead on with it's descriptive terms; "Southern Fried Sizzle", "Fuzz Toned Hard Rock" and "Barnburner of Blues and Barrelhouse Boogie". That sums up ZZ Top to a T and I doubt anyone could come up with better. With their customized-and at times-fur-covered guitars, hot rod cars, top hats, cowboy boots and, of course, the beards, ZZ Top blasted their way into the world of rock and roll and has lasted for going on 40 years now, incredibly with the same line up of musicians. But then again, why tamper with perfection? A lot of us knew ZZ Top when they were in their 'dirty boogie' days of the early 1970's with "Tush" and we followed them through their commercially mega-successful 1980's and never once lost love of or respect for this dynamic trio. It's a toss up as to which is longer-their careers or their beards!
This DVD brilliantly captures the band's sizzling-hot live show, with 17 songs performed, including "Got Me Under Pressure", "Sharp Dressed Man", "Pearl Necklace", "Legs", "Rough Boy", "Cheap Sunglasses" and of course "Gimme All Your Lovin" and "Tush". Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill do their patented, synchronized guitar sway as drummer Frank Beard (yep, the guy with the shortest beard) effortlessly keeps the beat behind a drum kit tricked out with shocks, struts and a necking knob on the cymbal stand. For me, the best part of the DVD is when they play a scorching hot version of "Blue Jean Blues".

4.0 out of 5 stars ZZ boys are Classic!!!! Dec 11 2012
By Anacin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An absolute blast to hear these guys still dish it out! Grab a few beverages and crank it up! Very simply done, no busty women as would expect from the past video era or from the lyrics from most of ZZ's collection but a good way to catch them at a live show! Worth the buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tunes - runs out of steam near the end July 12 2012
By Berndt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great old tunes to start the DVD (waitin for the bus/Jesus just left Chicago/La Grange/ etc). Billy's voice is still great (in his own style) Dusty's voice has worn a bit. The picture quality is great as well as the sound. Good high energy video!

1.0 out of 5 stars Crystal clear picture, muddy sound, poor editing Feb. 14 2009
Format:DVD
This could have been a great DVD. The picture clarity is spectacular in HD. Too bad, the one or two second edits rob the performance of any continuity. You never get a sense you are there. It's just a bunch of cut ups. Worse than that is the sound, which is missing dynamics and juice. It's just one wall of tinny noise. Besides that, I liked the performance and ZZ Top is a hoot. Such a waste. Technically, this DVD is not up to the band's caliber.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIVE is the WORD March 27 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The BOYS rock thru all their hits with ease with a real gutsy sound that is actually better than the studio records. Their unique sound and look along with some classic moves on stage bring the audience into a frenzy. Even I didn't realize just how good they are til I saw this DVD. Billy Gibbons played with the late Jimi Hendrix and his guitar playing on Foxey Lady was note for note (Jimmi taught him). A must have for all the rock/boogie/blues music fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZZTop live from Texas
I was quite impressed with the sound and video. Because the concert was performed inside, I believe the acoustics are better.With a big screen t.v., and a good stereo it rocks. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ZZ Top video
All the hits are here and the sound and picture are dynamite. These guys aren't theatrical but it's more than made up for with the sound they get from only 2 guitars and a drummer. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Musicians and Entertainers
It takes only three guys (base, guitar and drums) to create all the rich music of ZZ Top. In some ways their music is simple but in other ways is very complex; either way this is... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic!!!
I like it for the reason another reviewer disliked it.
All the classics are included and ZZ Top is always entertaining.
I recommend to anyone who likes this band.
