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 !

My only time I've ever seen ZZ Top in person was fourteen years ago at Stevie Ray Vaughan's funeral (Note: Since originally posting this review, it came to my attention that my math was obviously way off. I didn't "carry the one" when I should have. Obviously, SRV was tragically killed 24 years ago next month - not 14 years ago. I'm leaving my mistake as originally written to keep me humble). I have never seen ZZ Top live in concert. To fill that void, however, is a new concert DVD by that "lil' ol' band from Texas" entitled, "ZZ Top Live At Montreux 2013".

The DVD is off-the-rails fantastic and is packed with classic ZZ Top hits such as "La Grange," "Gimme All Your Lovin,'" "Pincushion," "Sharp Dressed Man," "Waitin' For The Bus," "Legs," "Tube Snake Boogie," "Tush," and many more. The set list blends tracks from early seventies albums such as "Tres Hombres" 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.

What I particularly enjoyed was Top's tremendous treatment of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady". Billy Gibbons' guitar work is par excellence as well as the solid foundational rhythm work of Dusty Hill (bass) and Frank Beard (drums). This one performance is worth the price of the entire DVD alone.

Yeah, it's that good.

With an unchanged line-up stretching back to 1969, ZZ Top continue to delight fans around the world with their instantly recognizable brand of blues-infused rock and unmatched live performances.
