This is a great DVD recorded in 1975. On the first two tracks Doug plays the fiddle while Augie plays the guitar. The cover of Papa Ain't Salty is red hot with Sahm doing some serious guitar work. The finale of She's About a Mover is tops. I like this show better than the Sir Douglas Quintet Live From Austin DVD, but for Doug Sahm fans it's hard to beat the Texas Tornados Live From Austin DVD. So I'd put this show in the middle of the three releases. (Is there another artist that has three Austin City Limits releases on DVD?). One thing that I find odd about this particular show is the audience. Some of them seem lost. Clearly they had no idea they'd be viewed through 42 inch flat panel home theater systems in DTS 5.1 channel sound in the year 2007!

An early version of the late, great, legendary Texas Rocker Doug Sahm & his band (filmed in 1975). (Please also see him perform in the Sir Douglas Quintet DVD, & with the Texas Tornado's DVD). This is an outstanding performance by Doug & his band in this dvd, just like all the concert dvd's he performs in. This guy was simply amazing, and very, very talented.

In this dvd, the line-up consists of Doug Sahm on vocals, guitar, fiddle;
Augie Meyer (another Texas Rock Legend) on keyboards, & guitar; Martin Steitle on drums; Jack Barber on bass; Steve McDaniels on drums; Harry Hess on steel guitar & guitar; and Bobbie Earl Smith on guitar. This is quite a band, and perform outstandingly.

The songs consists of the following:
1.Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone. (Doug's hometown is San Antonio, Texas).
2.Cotton Eyed Joe (featuring Doug on the fiddle - this is reminiscent of Bob Wills playing Cotton Eyed Joe on fiddle).
3.Rains Came
4.Papa Ain't Salty
5.Stormy Monday
6.At the Crossroads
7.Nuevo Laredo
8.Dynamite Woman
9.Medley:
Crazy Baby
One Night
Sometimes
Wasted Days & Wasted Nights
10.Mendocino
11.She's about a Mover (A Doug Sahm Classic!!!)

This is great Texas Rock, and I highly recommend it, and I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Sir Douglas Quintet DVD, & The Texas Tornado's DVD. These 3 concert dvds contain some of the best Texas Rock & Alternative Country that you'll ever here. Thanks!!!!

Most of the following is from a review of a CD, "Doug Sahm and Friends". Except for a list of the song selections the points made there apply here to this DVD as well.

"One of the things that keeps occurring when one is, as I am, tracing in my own eclectic way, some of the roots music of the `American Songbook' is that once familiar names from the distant past keep cropping up in odd ways. Take the artist under review, Doug Sahm, as an example. I knew of his name from 1960's British invasion rock group Sir Douglas Quintet (Go figure, for a Texas boy, but that is the way things went in those helter-skelter days) and, later, from the edges of the Texas-driven "country outlaws" movement of the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark and the like.

However the impetus for this review of Sahm' music is due to a recent interview of Professor Douglas Brinkley (now at Rice University, I believe). Brinkley was talking about the nuts and bolts of his interview of the legendary Bob Dylan for "Rolling Stone" magazine on a National Public Radio talk show. In the course of that interview Professor Brinkley mentioned that the reclusive Dylan missed the companionship of his old time friend, the late Doug Sahm. That set off one alarm. Additionally, Professor Brinkley is well known to this reviewer as a long time friend of the late "Gonzo journalist", Hunter S. Thompson. That combination was enough to get me to this CD.

Like many others, when one is looking for the work of an older artist the best place to start is with some "greatest hits" compilation and that, in effect, is what is being reviewed here.

I downloaded one song from this DVD from YouTube and loved it. I wanted the rest of the Austin City Limits show too but couldn't find it on YouTube. Some time later I was searching Amazon for Doug Sahm CDs and ran across this. It is the Austin City Limits from back in the 70's that I was searching for on YouTube so bought it. If you like Doug Sahm, you will NOT be disappointed. This is his early years and it is good. Five stars all the way.

I love this so much that once I watched it, I immediately watched it again. Doug is THE best popular musician to come out of Texas. He played rock, pop, country, blues and every type of regional music that exists in Central and South Texas. Please buy. You will love this!!

Damn, I sure miss the old days of playing (drums) with Doug back in San Antonio
at the Blue Note, Tiffany Lounge, and the Green Onion (now under the SA River Walk).
Jack Barber, Bobby Jett, Rocky Morales, Jackie King, Sid Sims. He taught me about the
'double' shuffle before ghost notes were invented. DS was a Master of all trades.
