On Tuesday ZZ Top and Jeff Beck Jam Classic Song was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) ZZ Top are joined by Jeff Beck in London for a performance of the 1947 Merle Travis classic, "Sixteen Tons", on the Texas band's forthcoming set "Greatest Hits Live."

Due September 9, the package - which marks the group's first official live album after 45 years - presents material recorded over the course of several tours in cities all around the world.

"We spend the biggest stretch of every year out on the road, whippin' wire, poundin' skin, and rockin' it way up," says Billy F. Gibbons. "This is the true document of life de la ZZ. In an abstract surrealism style, this collection is a definitive chronicle of the band hangin' together for four plus deluxe decades, getting down to do what we get to do. Enjoy and listen to loudness!"

"Sixteen Tons" was first written and recorded by Merle Travis in 1947 and went on to become a No. 1 US hit for Tennessee Ernie Ford in 1955. Check out the Beck, ZZ Top jam - here.
