    I can't believe I NEVER bought this album!
    I was 14-15 when it first came out, and I guess the friends I hung out with had it- we always listened to it, stared at the inside cover...
    Not too late though!

    I don't know what it is about Mexican food that inspires me to not eat it. But every time I think I want some I just look at it and my appetite just goes away. Lost a GF like that. She insisted on taking me to some Mexican place, supposedly the best one in Co. Springs. It didn't go over well. She could have at least asked if I wanted to go. It was more like we're going and you'll love it. I tried but no go. So from here on out I think it's best to just skip it entirely. Which could be interesting when I go San Diego

    As for the album it's fantastic, for me the only weak spot is Hot, Blue,Rightgeous. I know a lot of people love it but for me it just kind of drags. Sheik for me is the underrated track

    One of my favorite albums ever. I bought it as a teenager and still have it!

    I literally found Tres Hombres in a parking lot brand new still wrapped in plastic about the time it came out! Figured it was worth a listen. Great album!

    Literally wore this album out back in the day...learned so much from it. On a side note, just got ticket for Billy and the boys when they do a residency here in Vegas in Jan/Feb in an 1800 seat theater, can't wait, mercy!!

    Tree Hombres is fantastic. I remember when it was released. Billy Gibbons makes his guitar sing on LA Grange. But to me, that song is ZZ Tops twist on the Canned Heat song Boogie.

    I think this is one of the best guitar solos ever...tone, taste, pacing, note selection etc...Billy was having a very good day.

    A great album by my favorite-est band...although I like Rio Grande Mud just slightly more!
