Doug Sahm: Doug Sahm And Band (Vinyl LP)

(Real Gone) 12 tracks Atlantic 1973, Limited Edition Gold Vinyl.
Doug Sahm’s first solo record was something of a coming out party, a big budget affair that let the world know what the insiders already knew: that Doug Sahm was a quintessentially American musical visionary. After The Sir Douglas Quintet concluded its contract with Smash/Mercury, Jerry Wexler convinced Sahm to sign with Atlantic and brought him to New York for the sessions that were to become Doug Sahm and Band. To call the personnel that Wexler and co-producer Arif Mardin assembled for the album 'star-studded' is a severe understatement: among the musicians on this 1972 release were Dr. John, David 'Fathead' Newman, David Bromberg, and Flaco Jiménez (the first in a series of collaborations with Doug); Sir Doug stalwarts Augie Meyers, Jack Barber, and George Rains; and, of course, Bob Dylan, who contributes a hitherto-unheard song ('Wallflower'). It is a testament to Sahm’s boundless talent that all of these stellar musicians wanted to play with him; it’s even more of a testament that despite all of the formidable artists in the room, and despite the fact that Sahm only wrote three of the album’s 12 tunes, Doug Sahm and Band never sounds like anything but a Doug Sahm record. And a hell of a good one, too, highlighted by the anthemic.(Is Anybody Going to) San Antone' and the brilliant Willie Nelson cover 'Me and Paul'.This turned out to be Doug’s only charting solo album, but he was never about the money. What mattered to Doug was the groove, and this record has it in every one of ‘em. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue of this classic record, limited to 1000 gold vinyl copies. A must for your American music collection.

Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Flaco Jimenez a.o.

Artist description "Sahm, Doug"

Doug Sahm and Band

  Gonna Be Easy

With 'And Band,' Doug Sahm pretty much abandoned the psychedelic trappings of his Mercury years. True, the last couple of Mercury LPs had downplayed the trippiness, but 'And Band' set him upon the course that he would follow the rest of his life as he explored the deep roots of Texas music in honky tonk, western swing, Conjunto, and electric blues. Others did this, but none as well. Sahm's gift was to blend it all so unselfconsciously.

 

Judging by the profusion of remaindered copies that populated cut-out bins for years, Atlantic expected big things of 'Doug Sahm and Band,' but the expectations went unfulfilled. It peaked at #125 on the Top 200 albums. It's Gonna Be Easy shone the spotlight on Atwood Allen, who'd been in Sahm's orbit for years. Apparently, Allen was on the Playboy After Dark show where Sahm sung Mendocino, but looked so ungainly he had to sing off-camera. Working for Mission Ice Co. in San Antonio, music wasn't his full-time career, but his sweet high tenor sounded good with Sahm, and more to the point he could follow Sahm's idiosyncratic phrasing. Bob Dylan liked Atwood, too, and brought him onto the Rolling Thunder Revue when it touched down in San Antonio. Allen died in San Antonio a couple of years after Sahm. It's Gonna Be Easy is his best-known song. In other hands, it could have been a country hit, maybe even a soft rock hit.
