    So I was sitting out front in front of the main rig with a glass of dinner in my hand listening to Tres Hombres. And it just hit me hard to think that this album is 43 years old now and I can listen to it like it's still fresh. It's still The Big Hammer.

    Can I get a witness? Anyone got some amusing stories about something that you were doing or happened to you while listening to this album? (sorry, I'm a boring guy, got no cool stories to relate, I just listen to the darn thing. :))

    Cheers
    James

    I still have Tres Hombres along with Fandango! on vinyl even after I went through my stupid vinyl purge:whip:
    I agree that it all still sounds fresh (though admittedly I try not to play it too often so it stays that way).
    Even their most radio played song La Grange is a remaster so the original sounds different enough to not sound worn out.
    I've been thinking of picking up some more of their early stuff but have been disappointed in most other remasters I've bought.

    Sorry, no cool stories btw, but this is definitely among my top albums.

    Well, I don't have a story, but I do think that Tres Hombres is a great album. One of my desert island albums. Jesus Just Left Chicago for the win!

    Out of thousands of records, I only have 5 sets of duplicated. Tres Hombres is one of them.
