Live In Germany features ZZ Top's 1980 performance at the Grugahalle in Essen for the German TV series Rockpalast. Hot on the heels of their classic Deguello album, the show sees ZZ Top in their essence as the 'lil ol' band from Texas' nickname in a set packed with their early hits.

ZZ Top is one of my all-time favorite bands and this concert has the majority of their best songs. My only complaint is that the sound is too clean, especially on the guitar-- which I would have liked to have more distortion; maybe the tv crew were using a direct box on the guitar, instead of using mics on the amps.
These guys put out more sheer SOUND than any 3-piece band I know of this side of Rush (and the Top does it with strictly guitar, bass and drums, whereas Rush uses keyboards, synths, bass pedals and a drummer that plays like 3 people by himself). But ZZ is about more than just noise or volume. They deliver blues & boogie rock fueled with a distinctive Texas attitude and plenty of chops from all 3 players with some great songwriting and singing to top it all off! I saw ZZ Top in 1983 and thought they were phenomenal but this tops that concert. The video is from 1980, so hardly Blu-ray, but it's plenty solid and the audio will make you think you're in the building. So if you're into ZZ Top at all and prefer their pre-MTV sound, this is the holy grail!
Billy, Dusty and Frank had a lot more energy and health back then and it shows, as they burn through 22(!!!!) songs in just 93 minutes. The video quality is alright considering that it's 30+ years old, but the new 5:1 mix is excellent. About the only little gripe is that they didn't mike the huge crowd that showed up and they wind up sounding like a small audience instead.
It's a hell of a show, and if you're an old time ZZ Top fan who loved what they did before Eliminator, drum machines and MTV you're in for a treat. Snag it asap, crank it up, crack open some cold Shiner Bock and enjoy!
p.s.LaGrange is just awesome, incl. a bit of BBQ,.. Arrested Driving w/Blind is another hilite...
