ZZ Top, Brian Auger's Oblivion Express: Felt Forum, New York NY
Toby Goldstein, Billboard, 7 June 1975
THERE IS A certain sector of the rock audience — very young and overstimulated — that cares little about what the group onstage is accomplishing in musical terms. Rather, they view the concert hall as a party room, suitable for foot-stomping, cheering, whistling and urges to the band for even higher volume levels. Such was the crowd that came to see ZZ Top May 23, and the result, for anyone in the room not stumbling about on a variety of intoxicants, was profound discomfort accompanying a minimum of performing ability.
