One Foot in the Blues is a compilation album by the American rock band ZZ Top, released in 1994 (see 1994 in music). The album contains a selection of the band's songs which fall into the blues genre. With the exception of the songs taken from the Degüello, El Loco, Eliminator and Recycler albums, the 1987 digital remixes were used.[1][2][3][4][5] Like their previous two compilation albums, The Best of ZZ Top and Greatest Hits, it does not contain any songs from Tejas.
