ZZ Top, Tejas
It's hard not to like early ZZ Top, the classic music of the group from the 1970s.
The band's distinct brand of blues-rock stayed true to its roots during this decade while steadily adding new elements. Sure, like most artists who lost their way in the '80s, the Top later put out "Sleeping Bag" and other such schlock ... but over the course of several '70s albums the three coolest guys in Texas were reliable producers of cool guitar groove. This album is just one example.
Sadly, the artwork looks more appropriate for a Jimmy Buffett or Seals and Crofts album. Like many other featured covers on this site, it's better to hide this one away and just enjoy the music.
