Amoeba Review

Jeff Hunt 05/28/2010

The title says it all. This is where it all starts. ZZ Top's First Album was released on January 16, 1971 on the London Records label, and it was an opening salvo in the battle to reclaim the blues from the Brits who had so successfully co-opted them throughout the 1960s. This is a gritty bit of roadhouse authenticity from the boys—Billy Gibbons on guitar and lead vocals; Dusty Hill on bass and backing vocals; and Frank Beard on drums—and they would only get better. "(Somebody Else Been) Shakin' Your Tree" is still as swinging and kick-ass now as it was in 1971.
