Editorial Reviews

With an unchanged line-up stretching back to 1969 and global album sales in excess of 50 million, ZZ Top continue to delight fans around the world with brilliant live concerts and great music. The band has made a number of visits to Montreux over the years, and this concert from the 2013 Festival is undoubtedly one of their finest live performances. The set list blends tracks from early seventies albums such as 'Tres Hombre' and 'Fandango' through their eighties blockbuster period with Eliminator and Afterburner, and up to their most recent release and return to their blues roots with 'La Futura'. The middle section of the concert features a jazz-blues tribute to the late Montreux Festival founder Claude Nobs, with guest appearances by Mike Flanigin on Hammond Organ and Van Wilks on guitar. ZZ Top, the 'lil' ol' band from Texas, are rocking the blues as strongly as ever!

I just returned from Best Buy and watched this start to finish......
First off, the reason for the 5 star review
excellent video and audio quality (all the more recent Montreux films are tip top) and at 16 bucks retail ... heck I can't even buy parking at a concert around here for that price so to have this any time in HD .... excellent value for money.

While the video run time IS 93 minutes... only 80 minutes is concert. Eagle Vision does this a lot , they include any and all bonus features in their run time. There are two light weight interview segments that take up the rest of the listed "run time". Normally I look for more than 80 minutes, but I think it might have been their full time slot (it is a pretty excellent 17 song selection including a couple from their latest). On top of that Billy Gibbons doesn't gobble up a lot of time , if any, between songs.... bantering with the audience and that adds a lot of time to other concerts.

Is this a perfect concert BR? No.... many solos are missed by the camera men/director , but does it have a lot of great songs? Yes. Does it feature a pretty excellent performance? Yes. Is the group engaging the audience? Yes. There is a bit of an annoying plug (excuse the pun) for Basic Amplifiers ... that keeps illuminating the stage set.... but did I mention the very tasty guitar tones? I could listen to Billy vamp on a simple A Chord with that fuzzy distorted sound for hours on end...

Bottom line from an owner. I'm very glad I picked this up.... nice addition to my other ZZ Top DVDs !

Typical ZZ performance. I've watched it twice already on the first day. The main video is about an hour and 20 minutes long of stage music and nothing else. There are a couple of interviews video extras that are under 10 minutes long. The DVD quality is fine and the video and audio are in sync. There was no in-sync movement between Gibbons and Hill, and Beard spent most of his time looking at something on the floor on his left side (a teleprompter?) but these fellows have been around since the late 1960s so I'll take any video I can get! The main bass and guitar used for most of the show show their age and have seen a lot of good times. The stage is simple as is the background video displays. You won't pay attention to them anyway, just ZZ Top. 17 songs are performed which span most of their career. Some performance modifications are thrown in to keep you on your toes. You will be happy with this DVD if you like ZZ Top.

Very satisfying! The only possible flaw (to an old, 58 year old ZZ fan who has seen them perhaps thirty times since seeing the Tres Hombres tour in summer '74) might be the tune selections. That is, I'm always craving the older tunes, mainly because of how those tunes were played/arranged in the days before ZZ played along with a pre-recorded tape loop, so as to fill in the studio synths, primarily. Never easy for a trio, but the boys always seems to pull its off in the old days (and various "You Tube" recordings confirm it's not just my memory tricking me - just listen to "Chevrolet" recorded in Washington DC during the WWTT in November 1976, I think!). Of course, with a record catalog as thick as ZZ has, I understand the dilemma, meaning, which tunes do we play that would have across-the-board recognition (or close to it) with the multi generational fan base?

I would guess if we are lucky enough to have them performing live for a few more years, the song selection heard on "Live at Montreux" will be more-or-less the compromise best suited to keep everyone happy. Still, I would have enjoyed "Precious and Grace" (from Tres Hombres" or "Francene" (fro Rio Grande Mud") just a little more than say "Sharp Dressed Man" or "Legs". But hey, I'm whining about subjective taste here anyway. Simply put, if your a hard core ZZ fan, there is actually darn near nuthin' to complain about! The recording is "par excellence", and I encourage ZZ ites to buy it with confidence. It won't disappoint!

This is one of those videos that make you wish you had a bigger screen. It is crystal clear picture quality and the production is excellent. The music, of course, is great.

Personal opinion, actually the best drums in the music. Mr Frank Beard is great!!!

This is a must to have for the ZZ Top fans.

ZZ Top recorded live at Montreux on July the 10th 2013 is my second Blu Ray concert from this great band and would say one of their best all around performances singing & playing some of their best music from the 70's to the 80's hits with Billy Gibbons playing awesome lead guitar with Dusty Hill playing a nice Bass and Frank Beard playing great drums on 17 songs with special guest musicians Mike Flanigin Hammond B3 & Van Wilks Guitar on Kiko & I Loved The Woman .

Track listing : Got Me Under Pressure - Waitin' For The Bus - Jesus Just Left Chicago - Gimmie All You Lovin' - Pincushion - I Gotsta Get Paid - Flyin' High - Kiko - I Loved The Woman - Foxey Lady - My Head's is in Mississippi - Chartreuse - Sharp Dressed Man - Legs - Tube Snake Boogie - La Grange - Tush . approx. 93 minutes with bonus feature interview with Billy Gibbons & Dusty Hill .

I read ZZ Top have been invited to Montreux Jazz Festival a few times over the years and this 2013 Blu Ray concert would have be one of their best all around performances that even the founder of Montreux Claude Nobs would be impressed .
