Before he co-founded Texas-blues beards ZZ Top, guitarist Billy Gibbons was a psychedelic cat – admired by Jimi Hendrix and already showing some chin carpet – in Houston's Moving Sidewalks, whose '67 single "99th Floor" and '68 LP, Flash, are lysergic-blues cornerstones of the garage revival. The Complete Collection is exactly that: all of Flash – an acid-rock period piece spiked by Gibbons' trippin'-B.B. King flourishes – plus "99th Floor" and other, tough non-LP action such as "Headin Out," a '67 proto-ZZ jam and a fuzz-caked '68 cover of the Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand" that sounds like it's about to melt into "Cheap Sunglasses."
