Sir Douglas Quintet

MENDOCINO

TOGETHER AFTER FIVE

With his band of hombres, Doug Sahm sung for the hippie era, extolled the virtues of exotic cheroots and helped invent the faux cowboy renegade movement on "Mendocino" and "Lawd, I'm Just A Country Boy In This Great Big Freaky City". His early, raucous recordings have stayed fresh, and the plethora of bonus tracks will keep fans buzzing.
