Sir Douglas Quintet / Doug Sahm

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Sir Douglas Quintet / Doug Sahm - The Return Of Doug Saldana The Return Of Doug Saldana
Pop Used - LP PHS 600-353 Philips
Rare 1971 Original Housed In A Textured Jacket. Shrink Wrap Intact. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Since The Sir Douglas Quintet's Records Were So Consistently Satisfying And Worked Such A Similar Territory — A Loose-Limbed, Freewheeling Eclecticism That Encompassed Rock & Roll, Blues. Even So, 1971's The Return Of Doug Saldaña, Is A Special Record That Leapfrogs Over The Competition And Arguably Stands As Their Best Record — The Best Representation Of Their Musical Aesthetic, Their Richest Collection Of Music, Their Best Collection Of Songs. Part Of Its Appeal Is That It Stretches Beyond The Signature Tex-Mex Sound They Laid Down With Mendocino; There Is No Song That Captures That Wild, Wide-Open Sound, Complete With The Simple Chord Changes And Careening Organ. No, Here The Sir Douglas Quintet Wind Up Emphasizing Their Musical Roots — Whether It's The Roadhouse Blues Jam Of "Papa Ain't Salty" Or The '50s Rock & Roll Pastiche Of "She's Huggin' You, But She's Lookin' At Me," A Cinematic Pastiche That's The American Equivalent Of David Bowie's Similarly Romanticized "Drive-In Saturday" — While Settling Into The Post-Hippie Hangover Of The Early '70s, As The Dreams Of The Late '60s Die. Witness How The Raving Opener, "Preach What You Live, Live What You Live," Finds Its Counterpart In The Sweetly Resigned "Stoned Faces Don't Lie," And How It Covers Both Spectrums Of Emotion, As Doug Sahm And His Group Embrace Ideals While Simultaneously Finding Them Dwindling Away. No Other Record By The Sir Douglas Quintet Has Such A Consistently Great Set Of Songs Or Captures Their Ambition And Skill As Well As This, Which Is Why It Is Arguably Not Only Their Finest Record, But Also One Of The Great Lost Records Of Its Era, Holding Its Own With The Best Of Such Similarly Minded Groups As The Band. A Fantastic Record That's Just Waiting To Be Discovered.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide.... more details
