Rio Grande Mud

I am going to do something I haven’t done before. I am going to take a shit at Wendy’s and later try to create a shareable recipe for a vegan milkshake.

Nah, I am going to talk about an album that I have had very little exposure to, and that album is ZZ Top’s Rio Grande Mud. I believe it is their second album, released in 1972 and a very solid one indeed. ZZ Top is on my mind because I saw them in concert a few weeks ago—ZZ Top was also the first concert I ever attended when I was just nine years old, my dad even let me skip school the next day (the first and only time that happened).

I knew I would like the show, but I guess I didn’t know just how much. Billy Gibbons is on my short list of very favorite Guitar Players ever (not just me, Hendrix is said to have loved him too) I will name a few others to give you an idea of what in the brother fuck I like:

Jimi Hendrix

Jack White

George Harrison

Buddy Guy

Mississippi Fred McDowell

St.Vincent

Judah Bauer

Zappa

Stephen Malkmus

Billy Gibbons blew me away. Sparse playing, not flashy or longwinded, but still very smooth, intense, and thrilling. I was really hoping to hear Just Got Paid and he did that to perfection. Just Got Paid is the only song I was very familiar with on Rio Grande Mud, and it is a great slide jam. I mentioned to my girlfriend that I needed to get some ZZ Top on vinyl.

About a week later, as a birthday gift she bought me a nice 180-gram copy. I love it. Records sound better when they are given as a gift…It’s fucking science.

Anyway, listen to some Billy Gibbons on guitar. Rio Grande Mud is as good as place as any to start.

Until next time,

Rob
