{June 24, 2008}

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.

From the gritty guitar that ranges from funky to all out blisterin’ rock this Texas trio gives all viewers a darn good time. With a running time of more than two hours, Live From Texas is filled with the kind of Southern Fried sizzle ZZ Top is world-famous for. Live From Texas features 17 barnburners of blues, barrelhouse boogie and deliciously fuzz-toned hard rock. These three, singer, guitarist and frontman Billy F. Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard make up one of the most recognizable bands in rock history, they’ve been together since 1969 and are inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2004).
