ZZ TOP : TEJAS (1976)

Μετά την είδηση περί μηνύσεως του εισαγγελέα του Τέξας Ken Paxton εναντίον της Pfizer, ξύπνησα με τους ZZ Top στο κεφάλι μου. Ιδού λοιπόν δυο κομμάτια, ένα τραγούδι και ένα ινστρουμένταλ από το Tejas, το άλμπουμ που οι υπερήφανοι Τεξανοί κυκλοφόρησαν το 1976.
Παρεμπιπτόντως, ο μέγας
Billy Gibbons, κιθαρίστας-τραγουδιστής των ZZ Top, είναι μέλος του December born club.

After Texas Attorney Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against Pfizer, I woke up with ZZ Top in my head. So here are two tracks, a song and an instrumental from Tejas, the album the proud Texans released in 1976.
As it happens, the great
Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top’s guitarist-singer, is a member of the December born club.

00:00 Asleep In The Desert 03:27 Ten Dollar Man

Mister Ten Dollar Man with that gold in your hand,
Comin’ ’round here after sunlight
With your peaches and your Pream
And your rollin’ magazine,
Tellin’ me you’ll make me feel alright.
Now, you’ll make me feel alright
Mister Ten Dollar Man with a girl by the hand,
Will this ten-spot take her away?
With his slaver’s finance
He winked; Said, “Take a chance.”
Don’t you know, it happens every day.
I said it happens every day.
Mister Ten Dollar Man with that gun in your hand,
Can I get a case of those tonight?
And now you’ve got the order;
I said it’s time to slip the border
Don’t you know it happens every day
I said it happens every day

    Never heard this. I missed their time, but recently have come to like many of their songs. Thank you!
