SIR DOUGLAS QUINTET - MICHOACAN
Ahhhh my beloved Sir Douglas Quintet; originally "designed" by producer Huey P. Meaux to be a Cajun flavored answer' to the British Invasion, the group went on to be pioneers in mixing beat, blues, soul, cajun, psychedelia and Tejano music in a way that shouldn't work but practically ALWAYS did, thanks to the brilliance and genuine soul of Doug Sahm.
This incredible track was cut for the excellent Kris Kristofferson film "Cisco Pike", and was only released as a 45 (itself a record that took me MANY years to find).
