This is a domestic London Records original pressing mastered at Bell Sound. I grew up in the era when this band was almost a parody of themselves, so I'm always blown away when I play this album and remember that it totally destroys. Jesus Just Left Chicago, La Grange, Waiting' For The Bus, Move Me On Down The Line... all top-tier Texas blues rock. It's very tough to find copies of this album with good sound and quiet vinyl -- I have copies on my shelf that are pure JUNK. This one is very strong sounding and plays quietly to boot. This copy is big and menacing sounding, and that's just the way I like to hear it. I had a big shootout for this album last year and went so crazy for this copy that I stuck it on my personal shelf, but I'm ready to loose this beast into the world.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "Tres Hombres is the record that brought ZZ Top their first Top Ten record, making them stars in the process. It couldn't have happened to a better record."
Vinyl: VG+ (light wear, nothing of major consequence)
Cover: VG (light wear and discoloration, solid overall)
Play notes: Sounds incredible and plays mostly quietly. A strong copy!
