Editorial Reviews

And that band included Bob Dylan, who not only shares vocals on three tunes but contributes a song ('Wallflower') that was yet to appear on any of his albums! Indeed, this album had a lot going for it; joining Dylan were Dr. John, David "Fathead" Newman, long-time Sahm stalwart Augie Meyers, David Bromberg and future Texas Tornado Flaco Jimenez, and the artwork by Gilbert Shelton of Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers fame was, well, fabulous! Yet, this album only reached #125 on the 1972 charts; perhaps America wasn't quite ready for Doug's twisted Texas vision of roots rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doug Sahm at his best February 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A must have disc for the Doug Sahm fan. Originally on Atlantic records and recorded in 1973 this is Doug Sahm primetime. Every song covered on this classic album is a jewel. Sahm's own composition "Don't Turn Around" has gutsy vocals and blistering horns provided by members of the infamous Tower of Power. A very diversified collection of tunes covering country,rythem and blues,tex-mex and fusion. Super guest appearences by Bob Dylan, Dr. John,Tower of Power,Flaco Jiminez and others. Check out great blues with "Papa A'int Salty", "Dealers Blues" with guitar riffs that make your spine tingle. Country songs covered include "Is Anybody going to San Antone", "It's gonna be easy" and "Faded Love" done with class,heart and soul. Check out pseudo-rock anthem "I get off" with the horn arrangement and guitar mix producing raw energy and power. Not the slicked up stuff so common this day and time. Dylan does lead vocals on "Wallflower" with backup form Flaco on the accordian and you get full appreciation for this piece with the cd version. The original albums were usually warped and the cassette tapes were of poor quality. You may have to pay more for this imported version and wait a while to get it, but this disc will blow your socks off. You cannot officially be a "DougHead" without this Disc,his best ever!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure chest of memories November 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I thought I had lost this album, an old fashioned vinyl, in my divorce. But who has a turntable these days, anyway? Well, I was thrilled to find this album here. It has a bit of everything that is Doug - Texas country, blues, a little rock. And this has "It's Gonna Be Easy", which I haven't found on any other compilation. Unrefined, rough, but pure music. It takes me back to 1973, going to the ol' Soap Creek Saloon just outside of Austin. Driving up "George P's Memorial Highway," hoping to not get stuck in the mud. Waiting for some band called the Sir Douglas Quintet to play, the lead singer holding things up to finish his game of pool. But once they did get up on stage, it blew me away. I was hooked and became a regular at Soap Creek and the "Dillo whenever Doug played there. I loved hearing him play Texas Country, the blues, conjunto, zydeco, and rock. Ahhh, the rock. He would literally raise the roof of Soap Creek with his version of "Purple Haze" - I wish that was on a CD somewhere!!. Enough memories. A great CD that I will never lose. Now if I can just find Alvin Crow somewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Sure I'll Wear Out The Grooves May 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Here 'tis folks...The long awaited US release of Doug Sahm's classic all-star session, "Doug Sahm & Band". Produced by the peerless Arif Mardin these sessions bring together such diverse talents as David Bromberg, Flaco Jiminez, Andy Statman, Augie Meyer, Dr. John, David "Fathead" Newman, Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan and so many more. Would such an eclectic lineup of session players and stars yeild a bumper crop of tracks, or would they crash and burn, like so many other "super session" recordings of their time? Kudos to Arif Mardin for keeping the egos in check and getting the most out of his super-star talent pool.

So what can be said about the music? Here's a banquet of styles and generes that take you from Tex-Mex to Bluegrass, from R&B to Country and everything in between. I won't bore you with a song by song analysis. Suffice to say, (Is Anyone Going To) San Antone, Dealer's Blues, Poison Love and Dylan's Wallflower are all standouts. Simply put....They don't make 'em like this anymore! Thank goodness Doug Sahm & Band is back and spinning on my CD player. I'm sure I'll soon wear out the grooves just as I did my old vinyl copy way back in 1972.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Big Push! August 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When this Record was released in 1972, this one was gonna be the ONE. Sir. Doug was now on a Major Record Label, and they were marketing this Album big time. Doug had been a performer, songwriter and all around Wiz-Kid since the late 1950's. The Sixties had been very kind to Doug when he left Texas and set up camp in Swingin' San Francisco. Every Dance party in America had: "She's About A Mover" on that pile of 45's right along side: "Louie, Louie" & "Satisfaction"...Doug Sahm WAS the party for a bunch of us. This was a Good-Time Boy who grew up in the shadow of the Alamo, who was now partying with Dylan, Lennon & Garcia, and Doug was enjoying every minute of the party.

In 1969, Bob Dylan's record: "Nashville Skyline" shocked a few folks because Dylan had done the impossible, he had made Country Music...Cool.
Doug was signed to Atlantic Records by Jerry Wexler, because Wexler, knew that Doug was the Goods. Here in this one Artist was Country, Tex-Mex, R & B, Folk, Blues and Rock, all in one lanky Texian that could play and sing up a storm. Doug was gonna be the next BIG THING, and this Record was to be the Springboard to Huge Arenas, Private Jets and $$$.

With some good friends joining Doug on this record, {Dr. John, Bob Dylan, T-Bone Walker and David Bromberg} and some real nice tunes: {"Is Anybody Going To San Antone","It's Gonna Be Easy", "Papa Ain't Salty" & "Blues Stay Away from Me"}. This LP could have been a major seller, but it didn't strike Gold with the Record buyers. The playing is wonderful, and many Musical Styles are imployed herein. As always; Doug's pal, Augie Meyer is onboard playing Piano and Organ. You can here Bob's Harp on a few tracks and Doug's fiddle is tasty as it always sounds.
