ZZ Top Announces Career-Spanning Compilation To Celebrate 50th Anniversary

ZZ Top is set to celebrate their 50th anniversary by releasing a career-spanning collection, titled Goin’ 50.

The compilation, in the form of a three-CD or five-LP set, will be released via Warner Bros. Records, on August 16.

The compilation features a total of 50 tracks, including songs from the band’s debut through to some of their most recent releases, in addition to “Salt Lick” and “Miller’s Farm,” two songs recorded in 1969.

“It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at all this,” ZZ Top guitarist and singer Billy Gibbons said. “We’re truly excited to be appearing across the continent this summer and fall, playing our bluesy kind of rock like we started in ’69.”

“The beards, Frank [Beard]’s excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed,” he added. “We’re keeping it that way.”

Drummer Frank Beard and bassist Dusty Hill are the other two members of the three-piece rock band.

The band is among the headlining acts scheduled to perform at the inaugural Exit 111 Fest in Manchester, TN this fall.
