BONUS FEATURE Poker Game - Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard talk through the history of ZZ Top over a game of poker. Dallas Show Day - Behind the scenes on the ZZ Top live show. Photo Shoot - On location with ZZ Top for a typically iconic photo shoot. Bonus track - ZZ Top perform Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady" live on stage.
As is often the case, the principal appeal of the Blu-ray edition of this title is its crisper visuals and especially its highly enhanced sound. Bonus material is the same as other releases, highlighted by Gibbons, Hill, and Beard playing poker while reminiscing about everything from opening for the Rolling Stones and the menagerie (buzzards, longhorn steer, tarantula, etc.) that accompanied the band on a long ago tour to Paula Abduls attempt to teach the boys some dance steps (the results speak for themselves). Their version of Jimi Hendrixs "Foxey Lady" is pretty cool, too. --Sam Graham

The reviewer who gave it one star is off base saying it should have included mp3s. Anyone who buys this DVD probably already has all of ZZ Top's music on mp3.
The reviewer who gave it two stars said it changed camera angles too rapidly. I, too, get dizzy watching shows that do that but I didn't notice it with this DVD.
I noticed that the boys are incredibly tight as a team, but the individual players get a tad sloppy or loose here and there throughout the concert. However, I knew this about the band members from seeing them in concert four times. Fortunately, they remembered all the words to the songs they sang and appeared alert and sober!
I had tickets to see ZZTop in Beaumont, Texas and they cancelled the show the night before the event... so I bought this to enjoy the concert I missed.
The audio and video quality is excellent, even though it's not a bluray, so I'm giving this edition of it five stars.
Billy's guitar work on "Just Got Paid" is worth the price of the DVD. I watched it twice and now I have to stop writing this review and go back to watch it a third time even louder. My wife is gonna scream, but I don't care.
This should have been a first class, thumping , guitar driven, rockin roll disc, and like another review wrote it sound like somebody used a hand held mike to record the audio, not happy!!!!!
The audio quality is messed up for me. I thought it might be my system, but even after checking the Dolby 2.0 on my computer, It's weirdly fluctuating the overall level constantly like a compressor turning on and off. Maybe it's my stuff, and not the DVD, anybody else have this problem?
Don't let this review stop you from buying this right away, the performance is fantastic, the direction is great, unlike so many concert films. It's simply amazing these 3 guys can pull off live songs that have dozens of overdubs on the studio recordings, and Billy is showing that he is simply one of the very best guitarists ever.
To all the purists who don't like the Eliminator and later material, don't worry, this is heavy on the classics, only throwing in the required hits from the MTV days, plus one of the bonus feature is a cover of Foxey Lady by a guy who was actually a friend of Jimi Hendrix.
Best $10 I've spent in a looooong time.
