"I'm a part of Willie Nelson's world and at the same time I'm a part of the Grateful Dead's.
 I don't ever stay in one bag".  ~ Doug Sahm

Throughout their years in the spotlight, the Sir Douglas Quintet has moved effortlessly between most of the root forms of popular music: rock, blues, country, soul, Mexican and jazz, usually inflecting their hundreds of recorded sides with elements from all those sources, then adding their individual touches. It's a formula that has endured worldwide over thirty years, and which for a time was even annexed by Bob Dylan for his "Rolling Thunder Revue".
