Doug Sahm: Groover's Paradise (Warner Bros.)

Fred Dellar, New Musical Express, 19 October 1974

OL' UNCLE Doug sure is a goodtimer. Take a whole chunk of that Johnny Rivers Boogie Band feel, dilute with a touch of pure Mike Nesmith and mix carefully with some bottled British pub rock atmosphere and you're on your way to Tex-Mex funshine, vintage '74.
