Doug Sahm - Groover's Paradise (1974)

Doug Sahm was a Texan singer-songwriter and musician, best known as founder and leader of the Sir Douglas Quintet.

In 1974 Doug Sahm got himself a new record deal with Warner Bros. He then recruited drummer Doug Clifford and bassist Stu Cook, previously known as the rhythm section of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Clifford produced the new album, which also featured cajun musician Link Davis Jr., who played keyboards, fiddle and sax. Groover's Paradise was another excellent roots-rock album, with the usual Doug Sahm mix of rock, blues, R&B, country, cajun and norteño. All the songs were originals, with the exception of the traditional Mexican instrumental "La Cacahuata". Another great artistic success, and perhaps his best album yet... It did not chart.
