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.

2.Cotton Eyed Joe (featuring Doug on the fiddle - this is reminiscent of Bob Wills playing Cotton Eyed Joe on fiddle).
4.Papa Ain't Salty
6.At the Crossroads
Wasted Days & Wasted Nights
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!!!!
"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.Read more ›

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.
