Editorial Reviews:

ZZ Top, the "little ol' band from Texas", has enjoyed enormous success on a global scale since their breakthrough in the early seventies and then their groundbreaking albums in the mid-eighties. Now for the first time one of ZZ Top's legendary live performances has been filmed for simultaneous release on DVD & Blu-ray. The track listing spans their career from early tracks such as "Waitin' For The Bus", "Just Got Paid" and the classic "La Grange", through their eighties blockbusters including "Gimme All Your Lovin'" and "Legs" (complete with furry guitars!) and up to more recent hits like "Pin Cushion". Filmed in their home state of Texas in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience, this DVD & Blu-ray captures ZZ Top at their very best.

TRACK LISTING 1) Got Me Under Pressure 2) Waitin' For The Bus 3) Jesus Just Left Chicago 4) I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide 5) Pin Cushion 6) Cheap Sunglasses 7) Pearl Necklace 8) Heard It On The X 9) Just Got Paid 10) Rough Boy 11) Blue Jean Blues 12) Gimme All Your Lovin' 13) Sharp Dressed Man 14) Legs 15) Tube Snake Boogie 16) La Grange 17) Tush

Summary: Good but could have been so much more...
Comment: ZZ Top is a great band.
The venue looks small enough that a great sounding disc could have been produced. However the sound has TONS of reverb. I don't know if this was in production or post but it was a huge mistake.
I also agree w/ others that there are far too many cuts. The editor must have been on speed. I literally could not count to 6 before a cut occurred anywhere I tried.

Summary: Fantastic
Comment: I have waited for a live ZZ Top DVD for decades. I love it.

Summary: Nice to get a live show from them, BUT...
Comment: ...but it is easy to tell that they don't have the energy they once had. They play many of the songs at a slightly slower tempo than the usual. And it almost makes them sound like they are just going through the motions. But they aren't spring chickens anymore,so I guess I should cut them some slack.

Many of the major hits are covered, though hearing a few obscure tunes would have made for a nice setlist mix.

Summary: I love ZZ Top.........
Comment: unfortunately, I do not love the sound mix on this. I would really like to hear this concert without the flatline audio. I was relieved to see others having the same trouble with this dvd...I thought it was me being overly critical, or my own equiptment's shortcomings. I found it almost impossable to watch. I was so excited to get this disc too!

Summary: BETTER THAN A LIVE CONCERT
Comment: i SAY THAT BECAUSE OF THE CLOSE UPS. U DON'T SEE ALL THAT WHEN U ONE OF THOUSANDS IN A CROWD, EVEN CLOSE TO FRONT STAGE CENTER. i'VE SEEN ZZTOP LIVE IN CONCERT AND I ENJOYED IT IMMENSELY. NEVER THE LESS NOT HAVEING TO DEAL WITH THE CROWD PRESSING UP AGAINST U ON ALL SIDES AND STANDING IN LINE TO GET BEER OR TO PISS. THIS IS A MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.
