Jesus Just Left Chicago
Tres Hombres (Spanish for “three men”, meaning the three members of the band) is the third album by the American rock band ZZ Top. It was released in 1973. The album was the first of many times the band worked with Terry Manning as engineer. It was a successful combination as the release was the band’s first commercial breakthrough. In the US, the album entered the top ten while the single “La Grange” reached number 41 on the singles charts. (Meanwhile, “La Grange” debuted number 33 on the American Top 40 broadcast on June 29, 1974.) only single released from the album was “La Grange” (b/w “Just Got Paid” from ZZ Top’s second album “Rio Grande Mud”) which peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. But on album rock stations “Waitin’ for the Bus” and “Jesus Just Left Chicago” are very popular and played as much as “La Grange”, and since those two songs segue into each other, they are usually played together.
