ZZ TOP - Chrome, Smoke & BBQ (2003)
"Chrome, Smoke & BBQ" is a box set by American blues-rock band ZZ Top, released in 2003.
In the Seventies, they figured out the grand gestures of arena rock. In the Eighties, they had all the right ideas about video when MTV flowered. So what if they mostly sang about sex, cars, beer, food and Texas? ZZ Top were true to their blues roots, and they made you feel good enough to party. The four-CD set "Chrome, Smoke and BBQ" naturally includes "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs" three perfect moments when riff, tone, visual image and the band's well-honed boogie combined in such a manner that they will never be improved upon. At least a dozen more great moments are preserved here on four discs containing no cuts less than pretty good.
