Doug ruled so hard. Been on a big kick lately.
Any fans besides Crack, Blues_Ken, GDad...?











This is a great tribute disc too.

Saw your post on Instagram, definitely going to check him out this afternoon. I also read that as an acronym for stay at home mom. :oops:

Sweet!
Fun, pot-soaked Country/R&B/Tejano/Conjunto/Cajun/Rock & Roll.
Start here. Dr. John & Dylan are both on here. Pretty sure Dylan thought Doug Sahm was one of the best songwriters ever.

Your description got me, I told the kids they could listen to Michael Jackson radio later. I'm liking it, thanks a ton, nothing better than spreading good tunes.

pretty much required listening for west coast hippies IMO

he was a great example of how cultures smashed into each other in the late 1960s and ended up creating new trajectories of art and music

Hell yeah GDad! Jealous!
I thought it was cool he was there to kind of "pass the torch" so to speak on to some of the younger bands - Uncle Tupelo, The Gourds, etc...

Big fan. I'm working to get our band to cover some of his stuff. Saturday night after our gig we went to a bar and loaded up the jukebox with Doug Sahm tunes.

The improbable rise of redneck rock is a great book where I was introduced to Doug

so many great singer / songwriter artists from those dusty towns in Texas. They all had a different sound that would later be called Americana (I guess).

Miss Luke78...he had a lot of knowledge of Texas music.

I worked an easy job in Texas for a couple of years basically going to anyplace I wanted on my own with all expenses paid.

So much great music out there.

ETA: Sorry for thread jack. Back to Doug Sahm.

Man I kinda want to start a local Doug Sahm tribute band called The Float Aways, learn like 10-12 songs and play like twice a year. Would be a fun, sloppy good time.

Doug Sahm & the all stars!
Thanksgiving Jam
Armadillo World Headquarters
Austin, TX
23 November 1972

Personnel:
Doug Sahm - vocals, guitar, fiddle
Jerry Garcia - vocals, steel guitar, guitar
Phil Lesh - bass
Bill Kreutzmann - drums
Leon Russell - vocals, piano
Mary Egan - fiddle
Hank Alrich
Benny Thurman

Lineage: "Dick's version" Master (reel) - DAT - DAT (clone) - CDR - Flac - world

--------


notes from other torrent:

Soundboard recording, a bit faint in spots, and a few cuts and mic drops here and there. Some of the instruments are faint, like the fiddle in "Orange Blossom Special", and the vocals are loud and raw. You may also see this as a Grateful Dead show or as "Jerry Garcia & Friends", depending on who the listener favors. Doug's out front singing and Jerry plays pedal steel for a good part of the night (see included photo). It does sound very Dead-like sometimes though, as you would imagine.


amended note for this torrent:

There seem to be two versions of this around (at least), with a few different tracks and the discs broken out differently.
THIS COPY was recieved as part of a large batch of Dead Dats that were supposedly from Dick Latvala's archive of shows that were NOT under consideration for the Dick's Picks series. Given out to close associates before his passing.



This version includes "Mr. Tambourine Man" as well as "Kentucky Waltz" and "Big Boss Man", so i believe its the MOST complete version in circulation.
tracking is left as was recieved ("roll over beethoven" etc. is actually a medley, as is the case with "shake a hand" which Doug just throws in a few lines from)
This version also seems clearer, less muffled (IMHO)...maybe there was a cass. gen. in the other lineage...I know at least 2 Deadhaeds that got this on Cass. shortly after i recieved my DAT and offered me a dub to CDR...
