"I bought this CD only because it was the only place to find most of the material from Doug's 1973 Atlantic recording Doug Sahm and The Band. That album featured the likes of David Bromberg, David "Fathead" Newman, Flaco Jiminez, Dr John and the infamous Robert Zimmerman. With a cast of legends such as this, it was nearly impossible to live up to the hype. However, I think that session produced more than it's share of standouts. Faded Love, San Antoine, Dealer's Blues and Dylan's great composition Wallflower are all praiseworthy.I did find a copy of Doug Sahm and The Band reissued on the Edsel label. So it's out theresomewhere. Until then, look to this Rhino collection to fill in the gaps."

"I bought this CD because it includes some of the tracks of my favorite Doug Sahm recording...DOUG SAHM and BAND. I only wish the song "Its Gonna be Easy" was included in this compilation. Anyways the DOUG SAHM and BAND tunes on this CD offer a rough, unpolished but groooovy sound. Doug and his collaborating musicians offer up a delicious mix of tex-mex, blues and western music. This CD is not for folks wanting a clean polished sound....this is the REAL thang!!!!"
Aint given you one red copper cent

"the blues tunes on this disc are pure doug. your friends, san francisco fm blues, and aint that lovin you are as good as it gets. this is the stuff doug used to lay down at the old soap. i can still see him with hat and fender pushing his glasses higher on his nose, telling jack barber or rocky morales how he wanted something done-without missing a lick. there are other good tunes here. if you are a DOUGIE fan you should pick it up."
