ZZ Top - Live In Germany 1980 [2LP] (limited)
With their 1973 album Tres Hombres ZZ Top achieved their well-deserved breakthrough in the USA. Their success in Europe is mainly accredited to their brilliant live album Live in Germany 1980. During their performance as part of the Rockpalast Night in the Essen Grugahalle, they played classics from their 1979 album Degüello ("I Thank You," "Cheap Sunglasses") as well as hits from the Gold-certified Tres Hombres ("La Grange," "Waitin' for the Bus," "Jesus Just Left Chicago"). An absolute rarity on vinyl, Live in Germany 1980 does a great job of displaying the best of ZZ Top's pre-Eliminator material in a concert setting as the trio manages to bring their hits to life in an even more explosive way.
