Remastered re-release of the sixth full-length studio album by legendary American Blues/Boogie/Hard Rock band.
The first ZZ Top release on Warner Bros. Records and eventually went Platinum.
Returning from a two-year hiatus, the band began to showcase the influence they have collected during the time away; Gibbons' time in Europe introduced him to Punk music, the influences of which seeped into the creation of the album. The band also consciously tried experimenting with technology: Gibbons saw an episode of The Phil Donahue Show where a person's identity was protected using silhouette and a pitch shifter; liking the sound, he asked engineer Manning to call the show and find out what the effects unit was. Manning eventually convinced a reluctant show producer to reveal it, and the effect was used for both vocals and guitars on songs like "Manic Mechanic".
The album also marked the first time that ZZ Top featured cover versions on a studio album: "I Thank You" by Isaac Hayes/David Porter and "Dust My Broom", credited on early editions to Elmore James but subsequently credited to Robert Johnson, who recorded it in 1936. Elmore James had adapted and popularized the song in 1951.
Cut from original master tapes, pressed with more care than ever, 180g vinyl packaged in special Slip Cover.
Warner Records Inc., 1979/2020 (R1 3361 / 8122-79794-0). Made in Germany.
