Since their debut album in 1971 Texan blues-rock trio ZZ Top have been loved for their distinctive mix of Texan humour, strong blues riffs and synthesizers! Now thirty years on, and with millions of albums sold, ZZ Top are one of the only rock groups to have endured with their original line up, Billy Gibbons (vocals), Dusty Hill (bass) and Frank Beard (Drums), still going strong.
ZZ Top – The Studio Albums 1970 – 1990 is a 10CD boxset of the band’s classic studio albums from their Warner Bros. years 1970 – 1990. Released on the 10th June The Studio Albums comes hot off the heels of their US tour and a week before the European tour starts.
This compact, clamshell boxset will feature each album in a mini, vinyl replica card sleeve with original artwork, including replicated original gatefold sleeves for Tres Hombres and Tejas.
Most importantly the original audio tape versions will finally be available, for the first time, on CD for three of the albums: First Album, Rio Grande Mud, and Tejas, and the original masters for Tres Hombres and Fandango will also be included.
Much discussion has been had on the quality of the mixes released on CD in the 1980s but now the original audio will be available once and for all in an amazing boxset!
