I busted out all my ZZ Top after hearing about Dusty's passing. This pressing sounds fantastic. The sleeve is really thick too. This is how all re-masters should be done.

Just a heads up...if you're planning to purchase this from pop.market, the pressing they're currently sending is not the one listed here but is this one... https://www.discogs.com/ZZ-Top-Rio-Grande-Mud/release/18867913 . It's not pressed at RTI but instead at MPO as indicated by plant stamp in runout and there's no "CB" etchings so can't confirm whether it's still in fact the Bellman cut. It is still a 180g pressing.

With that said, it still sounds fantastic! The record came out of sleeve clean and is super quiet allowing for the music to really breath and come to life in the room. I suspect it's still a Bellman cut even though there's no identifiers.

In comparison to my 1st USA press on London issue, this French pressing sounds muffled, lacking serious life and clarity, the laminated cover is a nice touch/difference though.

Excellent sounding copy with no issues. Sounds warm with just the right amount of punch in the right places. Vinyl is also very quiet with no pops/clicks or static. What a great rock/blues fusion classic.

The live version of Bar -B-Q is much better but this one,s O.K.,Just Got Paid and Whiskey"n Mama are worth a listen.

Not as good as the two albums that bookend this one, IMHO, but worth having for no other reason than track B3. Great song.

Got one like this, but without the NcB on labels. Not on Discogs.

NCB on labels usually indicates a Scandinavian pressing.

Although this is the 'butchered' recording of "Rio Grande Mud", this album still must be one of their best. In my opinion, there really is not one filler song in the entire album. Here are my song reviews:
"Francine"--Five stars--Sets off the album on a good pace; great opener.
"Just Got Paid"--Five stars--Classic bluesy ZZ Top anthem; raw, gritty goodness.
"Mushmouth Shoutin'"--Five stars--Great blues song; blues harp is the best part of the song.
"Ko Ko Blue"--Five stars--Nice fast paced song; rounds off slower songs in the album.
"Chevrolet"--Five stars--Well paced and nice riff; great road song
"Apologies To Pearly--Six stars--Best song on the whole album; Billy's guitar playing is phenominal; one of their best songs period.
"Bar-B-Q"--Five stars--Another gritty bluesy song; great fast pace.
"Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell"--Five stars--Brilliant slow blues to keep the real pace of the album in check.
"Whiskey'n Mama"--Four stars--Okay song; yet, not phenominal.
"Down Brownie"--Five stars--Nice coarse riff; good toe-tappin' rhythm.
Again, this is one of their best albums of all time
Overall Rate--five stars--good job to the guys!
