Doug hylles!
Datum: 2008-12-17

Ti år etter at han døde er texaneren Doug Sahm gjenstand for en hyllestplate. 24. mars slipper Vanguard Records »Keep Your Soul: A Tribute to Doug Sahm«.

Med på laget for å feire the texas groover er Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo, Dave Alvin, Delbert McClinton, Charlie Sexton, the Gourds, Jimmie Vaughan, Terry Allen (med Joe Ely), Greg Dulli, Freda & the Firedogs, Joe »King« Carrasco (med the Texas Tornados) og Dougs sønn, Shawn Sahm, sammen med Dougs longtime buddy, Augie Meyers.
Her er pressemeldingen i sakens anledning fra produsentene Bill Bentley, Stephen Brower, David Katznelson og Shawn Sahm;

Doug Sahm created a vast musical impact over a 50-year career. Starting in Texas and traveling far beyond, he is considered by many to be one of the most significant figures in blues, rock, R&B, country and other genres, as well as an originator of Tex-Mex rock & roll. »My dad is a vital link in the Texas musical food chain,« says son Shawn Sahm, »and this album will show that he belongs right next to all his peers when it comes to being a founding father of the state's rich legacy.«
