Doug Sahm - Hell Of A Spell (Reissue)

This 1980 reissue is a hell of a disc. From the opening riffs Hell Of A Spell is crammed with Sahm's typical rompin' and stompin' Texas blues/rhythm & blues mix. It also includes liberal dashes of the Tex-Mex and rockabilly he grew up cutting his teeth on.

As legend goes, Rudy 'Tutti' Grayzell used to go to Doug's school when Sahm was 11 to pose as his uncle and pull the musical prodigy out of school to play some of the gigs that required travel.

This compilation is dedicated to one of his heroes, Eddie Jones, better known as Guitar Slim.
