"just Got Paid" from their second album,"Rio Grande Mud". Pre-long beard Top.

"Tres Hombres" came next with the single "LaGrange". I don't know what happened to them after that.

I wonder if Billy Gibbons ever gave up on trying to be John Lee Hooker? "LaGrange" was "Boom,Boom,Boom,Boom" with different words. Billy was imitating John Lee's vocal stylings from day one with ZZ Top. Ah,haw,haw,haw.
