Do the LP's post 1987 feature the remixed songs or is it just on the cd's?

Some people can't seem to determine an idiom if there's a synth on it.
ZZ Top (they're invoking an association with BB King) hav always been a blues band but before they were Blues Rock or "Dance Rock" (ri-ight) they were a Blues Band and this album is that.
Probably the only (caucasoid) Blues i like (the idiom has been contaminated to the sorry point of evoking Bill Clinton in Raybans) these songs are SONGS, utilizing mostly agricultural metaphors ("..somebody been shaking yo tree...") and referencing heroin and vadge under torn denim.
I saw them in Phoenix in '02 maybe, back when beards were anomolous.
MOVING SIDEWALKS were better in some regards.

• Before the Santa beards, pimpin’ rides, sexy ladies, MTV videos and multi-platinum success of Eliminator, ZZ Top were once an honest to goodness – and damned impressive – Blues band with a capital B. The proof is right here on an album that’s as laid back and true as its title.
