Album · 1973 · 12 Songs. Supported by the venerable Atlantic producer Jerry Wexler, Sahm got to make this album his way - from song selection, to choice in musicians, and even cover art (the cartoon drawing of Sahm and his pals is classic, and highly accurate). The idea was to more or less replicate Sahm’s celebratory concerts, which involved an ever-evolving cast of longtime friends, and usually included freewheeling detours through Sahm’s musical history, including stops in R&B, country, blues, funk and even jazz. The result is an ambitious but amazingly earthy affair

Doug Sahm was the driving force behind The Sir Douglas Quintet in the 60s, and took a wild musical journey over the decades. Little Douglas Wayne Sahm got started by playing steel guitar on a San Antonio radio station when he was just five years old. As a teenager Doug recorded for various small Texas labels and formed a gigging band called The Pharoahs, and in 1965, producer Huey Meaux encouraged him to form The Sir Douglas Quintet, pretending they were a British band to exploit the popularity of new music from across the pond  . Doug’s ‘Hell of a Spell’ in 1980 was a Blues album dedicated to Guitar Slim, and his enduring popularity in Europe led him to sign for Swedish roots label Sonet. Doug Sahm Discography. This is such a bargain! Two of Dougs finest albums are presented together, to give a taste of his Blues based R&B and countyr styles.

DOUG SAHM : A Whoopin’ and a-Hollerin’. Posted on 7th October 2016. Title: Hell of a Spell/Nuevo Wave Live/Texas Hero. Sahm was a talented guy who had a wide appreciation of music: as long as it broadly rotated around his home state of Texas. Possibly the most fascinating of the three is the last in the list, Texas Hero – The Early Years in which his work roams back to 1958 with The Pharaohs but also includes The Markeys (1961), The Dell-Kings (1960), Freddy Fender, Ernest Tubb and T Bone Walker in 1961. His first real band outing was as a response to the sixties British Invasion as part of the Sir Douglas Quintet, which was reformed in the early eighties. This Texas blues/rhythm & blues album mix and is devoted to one of Sahm’s heroes, Guitar Slim. With a range of great originals and excellent covers, Sahm whelps out the blues but provides a superb array of musical abilities that provides a great exhibition of his talents. Arguably, his best album.

Doug Sahm once sang, "You just can't live in Texas if you don't have a lot of soul," and, as a proud son of the Lone Star state, he seemed bent on proving that every time he stepped in front of a microphone. Whether he was playing roots rock, garage punk, blues, country, norteño, or (as was often the case) something that mixed up several of the above-mentioned ingredients, Doug Sahm always sounded like Doug Sahm - a little wild, a little loose, but always good company, and a guy with a whole lot of soul who knew a lot of musicians upon whom. Pulling together a single disc compilation that would make sense of the length and breadth of the artist's recording career (which spanned five decades) would be just about impossible (the licensing hassles involved with the many labels involved would probably scotch such a project anyway), but this disc, which boasts 22 songs recorded over the course of eight years, is.
