The Very Baddest Of ZZ Top Coming In July

.
ZZ Top fans mark your calendars for July 22nd. That's the date that Warner Bros. will be releasing The Very Baddest Of ZZ Top, a career spanning compilation that will come in a standard one-disc version and a deluxe two-disc version.

The Very Baddest Of ZZ Top marks the first time that the band's hits from their entire career have been gathered together in one package. ZZ Top's Billy F Gibbons had this to say, "We're glad that material originally issued by three different labels over the course of all these years will now be housed under one 'roof,' so to speak. It's kind of a big, bad family reunion on some level".

The single disc version will feature 20 tracks that span three decades including the band's biggest hits like "La Grange," "Tush", "Cheap Sunglasses" "Gimme All Your Lovin'" and "Sharp Dressed Man." Several "Single Versions" of these hits are included, which are currently unavailable on CD or digitally.

The two-disc version will feature 40 tracks including all of the tracks from the single disc version as well as early tracks like "Pearl Necklace," "Just Got Paid" and "(Someone Else Been) Shaking Your Tree" and later material like "Fearless Boogie" and "Que Lastima."

ZZ Top will also be keeping busy on the road this spring and summer. They will begin with a European tour next month and then return home to a launching a summer coheadlining tour with guitar great Jeff Beck.
