ZZ Top – Tres Hombres (1973)
I’m a fan of Judy Greer.
Who’s she you ask?
She’s the author of the book, I Don’t Know What You Know Me From, an autobiography very much on my to-read list.
Using a search engine of your choice, type in her name and be prepared to say, ‘oh yeah, she’s that girl from that movie!’
Tres Hombres might have the ultimate “that song from that movie.”
I didn’t recognize the track name La Grange; after a few seconds, very few will still find the song unfamiliar. The challenge is figuring out where you know it from!
The song has probably appeared in countless ads/trailers/clips… and with good reason: just like Judy Greer, ZZ Top excels at what they do.
Tres Hombres is bluesy, it rocks, and there isn’t a dud in the set. It’s 33:32 of time well spent.
As a fan of numeric patterns, it’s only a shame they couldn’t add another second to the running time!
