========== AMG Album Reviews ========== Constant touring and favorable radio exposure made TRES HOMBRES ZZ's first hit album, thanks in no small part to "La Grange" (number 41), an ode to a whorehouse. By this album, Billy Gibbons had practically perfected his distinctively dirty electric guitar sound.
Arranged: with GS instruments, for the Roland SCB-55 but should work with any synth or wave table card
Note: I seem to remember when this stuff by ZZ Top came out it was panned by the critics as simply derivative and paint-by-the-numbers (ala Molly Hatchet). Nowadays, the early ZZ Top stuff is hailed by the same sort of critics. Go figure.
And, of course, never the less, this little tune is basically just John Hooker's, Boogie Chillin, with just a little more bite.
