ZZ Top: The Very Baddest of ZZ Top (Warner Brothers)

Anyone looking for a ZZ Top CD culled from four decades of the trio’s career need look no farther than the two-disc Very Baddest. Early album tracks share space with hits from the “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Cheap Sunglasses” era as well as less-heard numbers from the 21st century. The Texans seldom strayed for long from their blues-rock roots; Billy Gibbons’ blazing guitar riffs usually leavened their primal boogie rhythms. On tour this summer, ZZ Top’s closest pass to Milwaukee will be their Monday, Aug. 28, concert at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill.


Gov. Scott Walker has said he will sign a proposed 20-week abortion ban even if it does not include exemptions for cases of rape or incest. Would you support such a bill?
