Here is another Sir Douglas offering from the Scandinavian years. The band was immensely popular during their time in the countries of Scandinavia having many hit records on those countries charts. Doug would eventually drift back to Texas where obviously his true loyalty would lay. He would remain legendary in his output overseas and hopefully you were able to enjoy some of his music with the offerings of some of his obscure European Lps on the Sonet label
Dougs latter years would be as a mentor to the younger Texas crowd as well as the catalyst of the Texas Tornados were he would receive his most prominent success and respect among many. I have always been a huge fan of Doug in whatever mode he was in and I hope you have enjoyed this part of Texasmusical history With this one I will move on to one last stop here in Texas and then on to another musical mecca in the south and take a small jog in to the the great state of Americana.

I always thought that Canned Heat was the best music for a Bar B Q but perhaps I'm wrong. I'm thinking now it's Doug Sahm & The SDQ.

I was lucky enough to see The Texas Tornados at the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino followed the next night by Los Lobos. Two good shows at 5 dollars each. Good times those were.

Thanks for sharing the music,
