Degüello is the sixth studio album by American blues rock band ZZ Top, originally released in November 1979 via Warner Bros. Records.

Formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas, ZZ Top began with blues-inspired rock, later incorporating new wave, punk rock and dance-rock by using synthesizers. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons (the band's leader, main lyricist and musical arranger), and drummer Frank Beard. One of the few major label recording groups to keep the same lineup for more than 45 years, the band are known for their technical mastery, and strong guitar driven sounds, as well as their humorous lyrics laced with double entendres and innuendo. As one of the biggest selling bands in the US, they have released eleven gold, seven platinum, and three multi-platinum records, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

Produced by the band's manager, Bill Ham, Degüello was recording following an extended break by the band and is considered to be the last album of ZZ Top's first signature blues sound period, before adding synthesizers in the early 80s.

Producing hits such as "Cheap Sunglasses" and "Manic Mechanic", Degüello re-ignited ZZ Top’s career and introduced the band to a new radio audience, bringing even more popularity to the band through the early 1980s. 

Degüello reached No. 24 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart and went on to earn Platinum Certification in the US and Gold Certification in Germany. 

This vinyl LP pressing has been remastered from the original analog master tapes.

Check out the tracks "Cheap Sunglasses", “Dust My Broom”, and "Manic Mechanic".

This LP record is reissued (September 2011) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with replicated album artwork featuring remastered audio, pressed in Europe.
