Degüello is the sixth studio album by the American rock band ZZ Top, released in November 1979. "Degüello" means "decapitation" or, idiomatically, when something is said to be done "a degüello", it means "no quarter" (as in "no surrender to be given or accepted--a fight to the death") in Spanish. It was also the title of a Moorish-origin bugle call used by the Mexican Army at the Battle of the Alamo, Texas, in 1836. It was the first ZZ Top release on Warner Bros. Records and eventually went platinum.
Degüello was produced by Bill Ham, recorded and mixed by Terry Manning, and mastered by Bob Ludwig.
All tracks written by Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, except where noted.
Original LP pressings of Degüello credited authorship of "Dust My Broom" to Elmore James.
