zz top: tres hombres (released july 1973)

Long before they had Legs or were Sharp Dressed Men, the musketeers known as ZZ Top made up the ultimate Texas combo with a positively wicked Southern blues-soul streak. To this day, Tres Hombres is packed with staples that still fuel the band’s live shows, from the Slim Harpo-inspired boogie hit La Grange to the blues medley of Waitin’ for the Bus and Jesus Just Left Chicago. But dig deeper into the scorching slow blues of Hot, Blue and Righteous and the Lone Star guitar groove of Master of Sparks and ZZ Top’s finest hour fully ignites.
