Sahm Enchanted Evening: Sir Douglas Quintet at London’s Mean Fiddler

Cynthia Rose, New Musical Express, 1985

THE LONG Ryders, Lone Justice, Blasters and the rest? Forget ‘em! Sir Doug has returned to show these punks how good "rock and roll from another era" (his quote) can sound! He can leave them all standing. Remember this is the guy who was working with Flaco Jimenez three years before Cooder, and was having hits back in the ‘60s.
