No love for ZZ Top?

they're Southern-rock, just because their biggest hits had synths make people forget people that their stuff up to that point and shortly after that were Southern-rock

as for the Allmans, i don't think they can be considered prog at all, sure they had 20-minute jam sessions, but the songs are mostly blues-based and not complex enough to be "prog" nor are they suites of many smaller songs, the long jam is one long song, really

i just got Eat a Peach and At Fillmore East

At Fillmore East seems to fulfill the promise that Duane was the John Coltrane of the blues, but I wished they remastered or doctored it some more, as the guitar tone is very harsh and brittle on that

It's an amazing album and I'm almost sure that It's been remastered with some bonus tracks added to it.

ZZ Top is great. I have their first album on vinyl. As a Texan, I love that little ol' band from Texas. Gotta love them Texas blues.

I never expected anyone to consider them as prog, I was just trying to make a case for it and demonstrate how they are more technical than most other blues based bands. They're definitely a blues-rock/southern-rock band, and a jazzy one at that. I'd say their music is best described as blues-rock influenced by several elements of jazz.

The boogie blues of 1970s ZZ Top is pretty much a must and they`ve got a lot of great material from that era. I`m also a fan of their 1980s Eliminator stuff, but thats mostly for the sexy women in the videos.

^ I`m glad you`re enjoying it; the opening track is excellent, isn`t it ? The slow build up, the change of tempo, it all works so well. I also like how the flute playing gives us a little break from the guitarwork once in a while.

Yes, I have some tracks from Hittin The Note - in fact that was the album that convinced me that the "new" Allmans are just as good as the old. Old Friend was a good choice - one of the best !

I also like the Stompin My Foot clip, SATCHMO. Very neat lyrics !
and talking of the North Mississippi Allstars, I wonder if anyone knows about this album ?



I think it`s the NMAs, but with Robert Randolph in the star spot, which sounds very promising. Has anyone heard it, or know where I can find it ?
