ZZ TOP Live – Greatest Hits From Around The World (CD)

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 August 12th on Suretone.

‘Greatest Hits Live’ picks the greatest moments from ZZ Top’s illustrious back catalogue captured with the phenomenal energy of their renowned live performances. It covers the 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 ‘Sixteen Tons’.

Along the way, they performed in front millions of fans through North America on numerous landmarks tours as well as overseas where they’ve enthralled audiences from Slovenia to Argentina, from Australia to Sweden, from Russia to Japan and most places in-between. The band’s discography continued to grow throughout, most recently with 2012’s fifteenth studio album ‘La Futura’ which was co-produced by Rick Rubin. The Guardian’s review stated: “The band sound both timely and timeless… It's an unexpectedly wonderful return from an undervalued band.”
