ZZ Top had reached the top of the charts before, but that didn't make their sudden popularity in 1983 any more predictable. It wasn't that they were just popular -- they were hip, for God's sake, since they were one of the only AOR favorites to figure out to harness the stylish, synthesized grooves of new wave. Pressed on opaque red vinyl.

Vinyl LP pressing. With their 1973 album Tres Hombres ZZ Top achieved their well-deserved breakthrough in the USA. Their success in Europe is mainly accredited to their brilliant live album Live in Germany 1980. During their performance as part of the Rockpalast Night in the Essen Grugahalle, they played classics from their 1979 album Deg√ľello ("I Thank You," "Cheap Sunglasses") as well as hits from the Gold-certified Tres Hombres ("La Grange," "Waitin' for the Bus," "Jesus Just Left Chicago"). An absolute rarity on vinyl, Live in Germany 1980 does a great job of displaying the best of ZZ Top's pre-Eliminator material in a concert setting as the trio manages to bring their hits to life in an even more explosive way.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

RIO GRANDE MUD is the second album by American blues-rock band ZZ Top, released in 1972. By this release, ZZ Top was honing the tough blues rock hybrid that would make it a certified U.S. arena headliner by the mid-seventies. While the album didn't spawn the big radio hits of it's later releases, RIO GRANDE MUD was another incredibly consistent and inspired ZZ Top classic.

2013 vinyl LP reissue. Musically wrought with Zappa's identifiable touch, this gatefold reissue of the 1973 classic LP gathers up 7 FZ classics that managed to bring a first gold album into his stash. Accompanied by "the Mothers," Frank jackhammered his way through boundary-pushing lyrics, funky rhythms, heavy rock guitar, implied messages of male stupidity, and as always, attacks at social consciousness and political correctness tucked in between. Never one to miss an opportunity to vent through his music, Zappa excels in "Camarillo Brillo," "I'm the Slime," "Dirty Love," "Fifty-Fifty." Zomby Woof," "Dinah-Moe Humm" and "Montana." Catch Tina Turner and the Ikettes with some uncredited backup vocals in the last cut.

Freak Out! Is the debut album by American band the Mothers of Invention, released June 27, 1966 on Verve Records. Often cited as one of rock music's first concept albums, the album is a satirical expression of front man Frank Zappa's perception of American pop culture. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music (although Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde preceded it by a week), and the first 2-record debut. Mothers of Invention changed from an R&B covers band to performing Zappa's original material when he joined the group. Freak Out! Contains a range of musical styles from R&B, doo wop, and blues-influenced rock to orchestral arrangements and avant-garde sounds. In 1999, the album was honored with the Grammy Hall of Fame Award, and in 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it among the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. "A master guitarist and provocateur, Frank Zappa made more than 60 albums, but the first was perhaps the most groundbreaking. The double disc declared the arrival of a visionary weirdo who dabbled in doo-wop, pop-song parody, protest tunes, art rock and avant-garde classical. " - Rollingstone This double 180 gram vinyl pressing was mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman mastering..

Sheik Yerbouti [Vinyl]

Vinyl: $37.99 Buy

MP3 Album: $12.99 Download

Limited double 180 gram vinyl LP repressing. Originally released in 1979, Sheik Yerbouti was Zappa's first album to be released on Zappa Records and contains the FM radio hits 'Dancin' Foot' and 'Bobby Brown' amongst others. Sheik Yerbouti represented a major turning point in Zappa's career. It emphasized the comedic aspect of his lyrics more than ever before, beginning a period of increased record sales and mainstream media attention. Sheik Yerbouti remains Zappa's biggest selling album worldwide with over two million units sold to date. The title is a play on words; Zappa appears on the cover in character in Arab headdress, and the name, meant to resemble an Arabic transcription, is pronounced like the title of KC and the Sunshine Band's 1976 disco hit "Shake Your Booty".
