This is unquestionably the perfect album to define why ZZ Top is such an amazing band. The first disk of the set includes the very best material they ever produced. This is also a great buy for casual fans who just want to include ZZ Top in their collection without the hassle of figuring out which of the many great albums would be their best buy. These men hiding behind impressively long beards were once naked and raw power guitar gods. This collection does not cater to any one sect of ZZ Top's varied fan base. Instead, there is something here for every picky person to enjoy – plus a great line up for someone who just wants to hear some great music. There are some great hits from the albums Eliminator and Afterburner that made their way onto the disk. Also, get ready to scout out the modern ZZ Top sound that includes four beat dance tunes and thrumming guitars. If there are highlights they have to be "Cheap Sunglasses", "Legs", "Rough Boy", "Pearl Necklace", "Velcro Fly", "Waitin' for the Bus", "Jesus Just Left Chicago", "Brown Sugar" (a great original version) and so many more spread over two disks. Rancho Texicano: The Very Best of ZZ Top Is definitely a great two-disk selection to check out.
