This Texas trio boogied onto the charts in the '70s, '80s and '90s, never once abandoning the soulful sound that made 'em great in the first place.

Frank Beard's drumming is excellent throughout, but the guitar-playing is particularly tasteful. I am a guitarist and would kill to be able to play most of Billy Gibbon's solos on this CD. You get blues licks, slide and wah wah, all played with exceptional feeling. The majority of these songs also feature Gibbons' mellow lead vocal: Dusty Hill's more typical, higher pitched rock voice provides an occasional and welcome counterbalance.
The Eliminator songs are very good, however the music stopped evolving from here on, hence the CD only gets 4 stars. The standout track from this era is Rough Boy, a great ballad but far removed from their 70s material. I myself would have included El Diablo from Tejas at the expense of Doubleback: indeed, after listening to 3 or 4 Gimme All Your Loving 'clones', even Viva Las Vegas comes as a relief. This is a great compilation nonetheless!
Thank you very much.
