Mitch Webb and friends celebrate the reissue of Doug Sahm's posthumous classic

"Dad loved that record," said Shawn. "He was absolutely proud of it. He played every single working bit of it to everyone he knew on the planet for six months."

The album closes with a torrential shower of love for San Antonio, the place where he was "born and raised," as he proudly remembers in the song's heartfelt spoken beginning, where he dedicates the song to "Eileen in New Braunfels." It was a fitting ending for a man who never forgot where he came from. But the album has one last surprise: a hidden track at the end has Sahm talking on an outgoing telephone greeting (he couldn't answer the phone because he was "milking the cows"). "Adiós," is the last word you hear.

The Return of Wayne Douglas' record re-release party feat. Mitch Webb and the Swindles, The Freddie Steady 5, Ron Rose & Friends
