Product Details
Performer Notes
  • ZZ Top: Billy Gibbons (vocals, guitar, fiddle, harmonica); Dusty Hill (vocals, bass); Frank Beard (drums).
  • TEJAS was accompanied by the year-long "World Texas Tour," a huge multi-media show that included live cattle on stage with the band. The widely reported tour broke ticket sale and attendance records.
  • Drained by the tour, and unhappy with the support of their record label (London), they took a three-year break. They negotiated a switch to Warner Brothers, who put out their next album (DEGUELLO), and also bought their back catalog for re-issue.
  • Also available as part of the ZZ Top 6 pack.
  • Personnel: Billy Gibbons (vocals, guitar, fiddle, harmonica); Dusty Hill (vocals); Frank Beard (drums).
  • Photographer: Lee.
  • After breaking through to the big time with its hit 1975 release FANDANGO! (and its Top 40 single "Tush"), ZZ Top returned to the studio and issued its fifth album, TEJAS, one year later. The album kept ZZ near the top of the charts, as it embarked on its massive "Worldwide Texas Tour" soon after the album's release (which included live animals as part of the stage's props!).
  • Musically, the album is somewhat more laid back than the band's previous more uptempo releases, as proven by such blues rockers as "It's Only Love," "Arrested for Driving While Blind," "El Diablo," and "Snappy Kakkie." The band would take an extended break from the recording studio after TEJAS, not resurfacing again until 1979's DEGUELLO.
