Great Show from That Little Ol' Band From Texas...
Posted by: ScreaminArmadillo from: Fort Worth, TEXAS on
I have to be honest here--I'm one of the biggest fanzz of ZZ Top in the world. I have every official release the band has ever put out on either CD, Vinyl, Tape, DVD or VHS, as well as multiple bootlegs (shhh! don't tell anybody!). I've seen the band at least a dozen times in various venues and locales. I am a bit biased; however, I can be honest when the boyzz put out a product that doesn't stand the test of time.
Fortunately, the release of "Live From Texas" is not one of those lowlights.
Amazingly, this concert CD/DVD is the first complete live set ever released by the band (the only previous live releases have been side 1 of the 1975 album "Fandango!" and the second half of the 1999 CD "XXX", as well as various CD single or CD reissue bonus tracks). Their original manager/producer/empresario Bill Ham felt that releasing live material would discourage people from going to see the band live.
I was at the taping of this live CD (the DVD/BluRay version was released earlier in 2008) at the Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie, Texas in November of 2007, and as usual, the Boyzz didn't disappoint. They played well, with the rhythm section of Dusty Hill and Frank Beard displaying their usual "1+1=4" perfection and the fine fretwork of the Reverend Willy G (Billy Gibbons) in full effect.
The CD (and DVD) play to the strengths and personalities of the band very well--you'll recognize almost every song within a few seconds, even if you're only a casual fan.
The only criticism is this--the band didn't pull out more "deep tracks" or "lost gems" to document this historical occasion (The DVD does have the excellent bonus track of Hendrix's "Foxy Lady"); it also would have been nice to hear some (or even ONE) track from their RCA releases (some of which were played at the actual show), but for the obsessive fan/collector (such as myself) or the casual fan of the band, this is a must-buy disc.

Great CD, Missing two songs from the concert but still a good CD.
