ZZ Top – One Foot In The Blues 1994

Blues

Old man sleepin’ the hot day away,
While he dreams a thousand yesterdays.
’cause he’s had so many come his way.
All he cares about is somewhere to lay his head tomorrow.

Old man sits and thinks about his home.
Doesn’t matter ’cause he’s all alone.
What he’d give to get back on his own.
Curses his body ’cause it’s old and it gives no transportation.
He sits in his one room shack alone but it provides no consolation.

What a shame,
His time is nearin’.
His eyes won’t let him see
The skies are clearin’.
Someone tells him
Without his hearin’.
It’s no news to those who’ve been around
While things are changin’.

ZZ Top – ZZ Top's First Album 1970

ZZ Top – ZZ Top’s First Album 1970
PS 584

Blues

ZZ Top’s First Album may not be perfectly polished, but it does establish their sound, attitude, and quirks. Simply put, it’s a dirty little blues-rock record, filled with fuzzy guitars, barrelhouse rhythms, dirty jokes, and Texan slang. They have a good, ballsy sound that hits at gut level, and if the record’s not entirely satisfying, it’s because they’re still learning how to craft records — which means that they’re still learning pacing as much as they’re learning how to assemble a set of indelible material. Too much of this record glides by on its sound, without offering any true substance, but the tracks that really work — “(Somebody Else Been) Shaking Your Tree,” “Backdoor Love Affair,” “Brown Sugar,” and “Goin’ Down to Mexico,” among them — show that from their very first record on, ZZ Top was that lil’ ol’ blues band from Texas.
