In this show from January 21, 1981, Doug Sahm (AKA Sir Doug) reunites with original band members Augie Meyers and Johnny Perez, along with the legendary Alvin Crow on guitar and Speedy Sparks on bass for a no-holds-barred, ripsnortin’ Texas rock ‘n’ roll revival.

Back in the day, the Sir Douglas Quintet were Texas’s answer to the British Invasion. With the arrival of The Beatles, Sir Doug and company saw their chance to break out the rough, Chicanoinfluenced rock they had been playing in the joints around San Antonio. They donned English-looking suits and hit the charts with ‘She’s About A Mover’ in 1965. Nobody was quite sure where they came from, but they rode the English-pop wave to fame.
