Another live album of ZZ Top, after Live from Texas in 2008 and Live in Germany 1980 issued in 2011 with many same songs. Beard musicians shows are now less exciting and shorter than before (1hour30 minutes with the encores!) and are all very similar. So, to make it a little bit different, Jeff Beck has been invited on two songs, “Rough Boy” and “Sixteen Tons” recorded in London. Beck asks no question, plays as loud as possible and the other musicians have to follow him or die. So beard musicians strike back. But, in spite of this two bonus songs, here we get classical ZZ Top with all the hits « Gimme All Your Lovin »« Tush » « La Grange »… And again we do enjoy that. Sound is enormous, even if Frank Beard seems to have difficulties to follow his band mates. ZZ Top is just like Jack Daniels. We do know the taste, we are not surprised, but we still go back to it!
