The first half
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good over view of the first half of their career. It covers most of the bases from the 70s. You have greats like "Tush", "Just Got Paid", "Heard It On The X", "Francine" and the great "La Grange." The sound quality is not as good as the second "Best Of" package ZZ Top's "Greatest Hits" put out in 1992. Problem is that you won't find all these early classics on that CD either!"
Have mercy!

"Though a 'best of' album, this is my favorite ZZ Top album, and the only one I still own on cd. I sold the two re-mixed albums I bought ("Tres Hombres" and "ZZ Top's First Album") without knowing they were the re-mixed versions of the original albums. This cd, however, conains the original classics taken from their first four albums ("ZZ Top's First Album", "Rio Grande Mud", "Tres Hombres", "Fandango") when the band was at it's best....

1.) Tush from the album "Fandango" (1975) 2:14
2.) Waitin' For The Bus from the album "Tres Hombres" (1973) 2:59
3.) Jesus Just Left Chicago from the album "Tres Hombres" (1973) 3:29
4.) Francine from the album "Rio Grande Mud" (1972) 3:33
5.) Just Got Paid from the album "Rio Grande Mud" (1972) 4:27
6.) La Grange from the album "Tres Hombres" (1973) 3:51
7.) Blue Jean Blues from the album "Fandango" (1975) 4:42
8.) Backdoor Love Affair from the album "ZZ Top's First Album" (1970) 3:20
9.) Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers from the album "Tres Hombres" (1973) 3:23
10.) Heard It On The X from the album "Fandango" (1975) 2:23

My favorite track is #2 "Waitin' For The Bus" - Have mercy!

If you want later ZZ Top ("Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Sharp Dressed Man", "Legs", "Pearl Necklace", "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide", "Doubleback", "Viva Las Vegas") then I recommend going for "Rancho Texicano: The Very Best Of ZZ Top" - a two-disc / 37 track collection, which does contain the original album versions of the early hits plus tracks from the albums following the first four represented here ("Tejas", "Deguello", "El Loco", "Eliminator", "Afterburner", "Recycler"). However, I do not recommend "ZZ Top's Greatest Hits" unless you prefer the re-mixed versions. But if you want a very compact, low-priced collection of early ZZ Top's best tracks, this is definitely the one to get!"
