Sir Douglas Quintet: Mendocino


Not often you get the good lady wife and myself plugging the same artist. This was recommended by reader Andy Marshall in response to a recent clip of Tony Joe White appearing on the US TV show Playboy After Dark. Here the deeply creepy Hugh Hefner interviews Doug Sahm over a platter of silverskin onions and other delights before he and the band perform Mendocino. Is that Michael Caine in the corner?

  1. I’m not certain that it is Michael Caine but it very well could be. There are other celebrities in that audience; I can’t remember who they are but I read it somewhere! You can tell that they are showbiz people from their exaggerated dancing.

    There was a film made about Doug Sahm a couple of years ago: “Sir Doug & the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove”, but it was only available as an Amazon download and not a DVD, which I would have preferred. Anyway, the download is not available anymore so I missed out. It will turn up at some point.
