ZZ Top's third album Tres Hombres released in '73 still remains a timeless classic, forget about the catchy pop hooks and lyrics of "Legs" and "Gimmie All Your Lovin'" that you heard on your local classic rock stations millions of times. This was way before the beards and fuzzy novelty guitars- it's just three dudes from Texas who created some serious dope Americana sound. I'm moving down to Austin in a couple months which is probably why this album keeps creeping back into my rotation. Soon I'll be burnin' up in that Texas heat and drinking massive amounts of Tecate listening to "Shiek" and "Waitin' For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago" on repeat. Here's the album, if you like check out Tejas and Rio Grande Mud also. Enjoy...
