Jay Farrar and Son Volt performing the songs of Doug Sahm, over 20 years after he passed in 1999. This was a “Record Store Day First” release back in 2023 on green vinyl. It’s got a vocal intro and outro by Doug Sahm, lifted from voicemails.

The back cover is an homage to the cover of the Sir Douglas Quintet’s 1970 1+1+1 = 4. (Sahm founded and lead Sir Douglas Quintet).

Like many tribute/cover albums it’s clear Farrar and co have a deep investment in Sahm – much of Son Volt’s own discography wears that influence on its sleeve – and their enjoyment comes through in the recordings.
