What better way to ring in the weekend than with some ZZ Top, right? Well… you probably have some things higher on the list, and i probably do to, but at least they are on that list. Texan blues-rock boogie doesn’t get much finer than ZZ Top. And this, their 1979 release and 6th studio album, is one of their best, with A Fool For Your Stockings being one of my top 10 favorite songs.
When the wife-to-be and I were living in Seattle a while back, I went on a huge ZZ Top phase. I remember it because she likes them, but doesn’t want to listen to them all day. At least that is what i am told. I say pshaw to that. Anyway, while on said kick, i saw this staring at me in the $3 dollar bin someplace. I bought it. I brought it home. I played it all day. Give a listen. Hello Friday, nice to meet you.
