Prior to 2003's Chrome, Smoke & BBQ, ZZ Top's catalog was crying out for a comprehensive retrospective.
Not that the band hadn't been anthologized before: they had two hits collections, with notably different track
listings, and in 1987's Six Pack, they even had a makeshift box set, but all three of these were hampered by
limited focus and haphazard execution. Chrome, Smoke & BBQ addresses both of these concerns by
focusing on the trio's 20 years at Warner -- from 1970's ZZ Top's First Album to 1990's Recycler -- picking
the best 70 or so songs from these ten albums and spreading them over the course of a lavish four-disc,
80-track box set. This is the first logical approach to ZZ Top's career yet, and while it isn't a perfect
collection, it comes tantalizingly close to that ideal. The primary problem is that by the time the fourth disc
rolls around, the collection has lost considerable momentum -- and that's without even touching any material
from the forgettable ...
