    Played this every payday in the seventies!
    The Complete Studio Albums1970-1990 reissue remained true to the original master tapes. When I first heard the remastered "Jesus Left Chicago" I was so pissed, it was unlistenable to me. The only way I could listen to ZZ top was on vinyl until the box set was released.

    Listening to this great album as part of social distancing. I found it after listening to Albert King's "I'll play the blues for you" on Youtube.

    Daniel Castro sings the same on this album in an extraordinary effort.

    Tony, that was great to begin the day. Invigorating!!

    I was not an early follower of ZZ Top so I have to make up for lost time. I like their music, and I am mesmerized by their appearance and style.

    Listening to the Blues often that awakened inside my head by playing the Eric Bibb LP below.

    It was given to me by Joe Coulson at the Georgia Meet in September 2019. I played Eric Bibb exclusively for 2-3 weeks straight for the simple guitar sounds and Bibb's vocals.

    Joe and I actually exchanged "LPs" aka "NFL jerseys".
