Synopsis

Album Description
Hook Tex-Mex music legend Doug Sahm up with the CCR rhythm section of Doug Clifford and Stu Cook and Creedence producer Russ Gary, and what do ya get? Probably the most coherent and poppiest record of his career (Doug did tend to ramble), one emblazoned with the unique artwork of local Austin artist Kerry Fitzgerald a.k.a. Kerry Awn and also featuring future Asleep at the Wheel member Link Davis, Jr. on various instruments. We?ve added new notes by Colin Escott that place this 1974 release in its proper (warped) perspective; it?s a favorite of many a Sahm devotee, now finally on CD.

"Early Doug Sahm is aways welcome. I finally fiured out why he never became a bigger name, he was all over the place in his music selection, there are times you have to be in a niche. We miss you Doug"

"Texas legend Doug Sahm and his crew had a pretty good time playing some funky blues-soul grooves and mixing a little roots and twang in around the edges. He's joined here by fiddler Link Davis. Jr., as well as drummer-producer Doug Clifford and bassist Stu Cook, both of the late, great swamp-garage band, Creedence Clearwater Revival... Good, funky, boogie-rock blues from the early '70s... Groovy, indeed!"
