I have played this album precisely three times in its entity. I was given this by Shredder as a recommended thing to listen to. He was not wrong. I have played this album when I drove some pupils to Canterbury for a school visit – you want something you think most people will appreciate when driving others around. I have so much obnoxious music that it’s hard sometimes to find something suitable. I played this album over my Sonos system when building a climbing frame for the kids and then finally I played it the other day in preparation for this communication.
This is a brilliant album full of dirty, gritty, blues inspired songs that all sound great. It has a real down low feel to it whilst not being obnoxious. I do like it. I think it’s an album I will go for more often when I need something decent in the background.
This album is not anything like you would expect if all you know about ZZ Top is their songs from the eighties. It’s actually way better and I even like their rock stuff.
This is communication number 1957 so here are some things that happened then in the year of our lord:
- The first frisbee
- A hydrogen bomb accidentally falls from a bomber near Albuquerque.
- A hurricane killed 400 people in Louisiana.
- The Wolfenden Report was published in the UK recommending the legalisation of gay sex between consenting adults.
- Gordon Gould invents the LASER.
