< >



Second re-release of the seventh full-length studio album by legendary American Blues/New Wave/Synth-Rock/Hard Rock band.
"El Loco" follows through on the streamlined, jet-engine Boogie Rock of "Degüello", but kicking all the ingredients up a notch. That means that the grooves are getting a little slicker, while the jokes are getting a little sillier, a little raunchier. The double entendres on "Tube Snake Boogie" and "Pearl Necklace" are barely disguised, while much of the record plays as flat-out goofy Party Rock. Still, the most telling thing about "El Loco" may be the rhythm of "Pearl Necklace", its biggest single and best song, which clearly points the way to the New Wave Blues Rock of "Eliminator".
The title means "The Crazy One" in Spanish. The band's guitarist/singer Billy Gibbons has said that the recording of this album was the first time the three members of the band were isolated from one another in the studio, rather than recording simultaneously in the same room. It also foreshadowed ZZ Top's synthesizer-driven direction later in the decade, with early experimentations in synthesizer backing on certain tracks.
Limited Edition 140g Hot Pink Vinyl.
