    Despite a couple of hits (1965's "She's About A Mover" and 1969's "Mendocino"), the Sir Douglas Quintet's Doug Sahm remained something of a cult favorite as of the release of 2009's KEEP YOUR SOUL: A TRIBUTE TO DOUG SAHM. Fittingly--since Sahm was both the consummate musician's musician and a master of Texas rock, country, blues, and tex-mex--the album finds artists (most of them Texan) from across the genre spectrum covering tracks by the Lone Star god. From blues stalwarts like Jimmy Vaughan ("Why, Why, Why") to former Afghan Whig Greg Dulli ("You Was For Real"), the collection mirrors the breadth of a talent producer Jerry Wexler called "the most gifted, the most versatile" he had ever worked with. The versions that keep the most faithful to Sahm's gleefully loose and rhythmic border rock like Delbert McClinton's reading of "Texas Me" or the Gourds' "Nuevo Laredo" are the stand-outs here--along with the version of "Mendocino" by Sahm's son Shawn, who sounds scarily like his dad.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.50) - "[I]t is one memorable celebration as the cream of the Lone Star State's music scene, including Alejandro Escovedo, Dave Alvin, Delbert McClinton, and Jimmy Vaughn, step up to honor one of their own."
    Billboard (p.29) - "Sahm's forever groovy mastery of counter-culture vernacular is illustrated by Los Lobos' rendition of 'It Didn't Even Bring Me Down'..."
