ZZ Top releases "Eliminator" 1983
The best ZZ Top album ever and one of the best rock albums ever, Eliminator was released March 23, 1983. It included such monster hits as Gimme All Your Lovin', Sharp Dressed Man and Legs. TV Dinners was also released as a single but I don't remember hearing it on the radio. I do remember seeing the video on MTV. ZZ Top's videos from the album featured a souped-up 1933 Ford Coupe and fuzzy guitars that could spin 360°.
Eliminator was certified Diamond, meaning it has sold at least 10,000,000 copies.
