Info for Live - Greatest Hits From Around The World

With seven Billboard Top 10 albums to their name, multiple Platinum album certifications all over the world and a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the legendary ZZ Top are officially the world’s longest running rock band with its original line-up intact. Now after over 45 years together, the Texan trio are finally set to release their first official live album „Greatest Hits Live“ on Suretone Records.

Recorded over the course of several tours in cities all around the world, ‘Greatest Hits Live’ picks the greatest moments and biggest hits from ZZ Top’s illustrious back catalogue captured with the phenomenal energy of their renowned live performances.‘Greatest Hits Live’ covers everything from their breakthrough hit ‘La Grange’ plus three snappy blues-rock classics from the 1973 album ‘Tres Hombres’, through to their huge crossover hits – ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’’, ‘Sharp Dressed Man’, ‘Legs’ – and then to the present day with their recent collaboration with Jeff Beck on the Tennessee Ernie Ford / Merle Travis standard ‘Sixteen Tons’.

“We spend the biggest stretch of every year out on the road, whippin' wire, poundin' skin, and rockin' it way up,” says Billy F. Gibbons. “This is the true document of life de la ZZ. In an abstract surrealism style, this collection is a definitive chronicle of the band hangin' together for four plus deluxe decades, getting down to do what we get to do. Enjoy and listen to loudness!”

ZZ Top
This sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums). They were formed in 1970 in and around Houston from rival bands the Moving Sidewalks (Gibbons) and American Blues (Hill and Beard). Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their third album (Tres Hombres) gained them national attention with the hit "La Grange," a signature riff tune to this day, based on John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen." Their success continued unabated throughout the '70s, culminating with the year-and-a-half-long Worldwide Texas Tour.

Exhausted from the overwhelming workload, they took a three-year break, then switched labels and returned to form with Deguello and El Loco, both harbingers of what was to come. By their next album, Eliminator, and its worldwide smash follow-up, Afterburner, they had successfully harnessed the potential of synthesizers to their patented grungy blues groove, giving their material a more contemporary edge while retaining their patented Texas style. Now sporting long beards, golf hats, and boiler suits, they met the emerging video age head-on, reducing their "message" to simple iconography. Becoming even more popular in the long run, they moved with the times while simultaneously bucking every trend that crossed their path. As genuine roots musicians, they have few peers; Gibbons is one of America's finest blues guitarists working in the arena rock idiom — both influenced by the originators of the form and British blues-rock guitarists like Peter Green — while Hill and Beard provide the ultimate rhythm section support.

The only rock & roll group that's out there with its original members still aboard after three decades (an anniversary celebrated on 1999's XXX), ZZ Top play music that is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful, and 100-percent American in derivation. They have continued to support the blues through various means, perhaps most visibly when they were given a piece of wood from Muddy Waters' shack in Clarksdale, MS. The group members had it made into a guitar, dubbed the "Muddywood," then sent it out on tour to raise money for the Delta Blues Museum. ZZ Top's support and link to the blues remains as rock solid as the music they play. A concert CD and DVD, Live from Texas, recorded in Dallas in 2007 and featuring a still vital band, were both released in 2008. The Rick Rubin and Gibbons-produced La Futura, the band's 15th studio album, and the group's first new studio outing since 2003's Mescalero, appeared in 2012.

This album contains no booklet.
