Purple Vinyl LP of the fifth studio album by ZZ Top was originally released in 1976. The title, Tejas, is word from the Caddo language meaning friends - which is the origin of 'Texas', the band's home state. The album features "It's Only Love" and "Arrested For Driving While Blind".
"This sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas was formed in 1970 in and around Houston from rival bands. Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their success continued unabated throughout the '70s, culminating with the year-and-a-half-long Worldwide Texas Tour" - AllMusic
"It's fair to say that this is a transitional record, although I'm not really sure what we were transitioning from and what we were becoming. (laughs) It may be representative of how rapidly things were changing in the studio.
"The equipment was becoming more modernized, and the way that music was being recorded was different things were moving faster. It was still pre-digital, but there was better gear that was more readily available. We made use of it all.
"This period was the wrinkle that kind of suggested what was to come, and change would become a necessary part of the ZZ Top fabric." - Billy GIbbons
