Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2008 reissue of the final album from the Sir Douglas Quintet and Texas Tornados member, recorded just before he died in 1999 and released posthumously a year later. One of Doug Sahm's finest works, The Return of Wayne Douglas is stripped-down and soulful. Sahm fans know that he is one of the best interpreters of the songs of Bob Dylan, and his version of 'Love Minus Zero/No Limit' is a classic. James Medlin's liner notes say it best: Doug was American as baseball, as Texan as the Alamo and as Country as chicken-fried steak.

This is probably the last new music we'll hear from Sahm (who recorded an early-1970s country single as Wayne Douglas), and since he began his career as a 13-year-old country singer and steel guitarist, it takes him full circle. The man put his inimitable stamp on everything he did, and this is no exception; shuffling rhythms, crackling guitar, pining steel, and Gypsy-swing fiddle cushion his frayed, weary, dusky vocals. Only Doug Sahm could conceive a putdown of "new country" as sidesplitting as "Oh No! Not Another One," only Doug could do Bob Dylan's "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" the way Ray Price might, and only Doug could conjure up lines and imagery ("as the leaves turn backflips on the farm") like those on "Huggin' Thin Air." He'd probably have recut some of these vocals had he been able, and nearly half the tracks are new versions of his old songs, but you can't help but wish the album went on forever. --John Morthland
