Tres Hombres is the album that turned a “little ol’ band from Texas” into a globetrotting, arena-rocking sensation that’s still played and revered nearly half a century after its release. ZZ Top’s first two albums are a great listen, but it’s the third one that set the stage for their success.

Tres Hombres is the record that cemented their sound — a mix of blues, boogie and Southern rock. It also centered their signature style, equal parts Texas roadhouse, avant-garde art project, and Southern-fried ashram. It gave the world tracks like “La Grange,” Jesus Just Left Chicago,” "Waitin' for the Bus,” and “Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers” — while giving ZZ Top their first of four gold records in the US.

Together We Rock

Waterloo Records is an Austin institution. The musical wizards there have been slanging albums and advice since 1982. So when we wanted to highlight some of the music that makes us tap our booted and flip-flopped toes, we of course asked them to help. All the albums highlighted here are curated and sold by Waterloo through the Alvies store.
