Oh yeah, I got "Groover's Paradise" on 45 today in the mail.
It will be in the Big Top's jukebox by the end of the week. It's a great Doug Sahm track written about 70's Austin. Came out in '74 and was produced by Creedence drummer Doug Clifford. The band is called "Doug Sahm and the Tex Mex Trip". On the full length LP it's just "Doug Sahm" with "Tex Mex Trip" written within Kerry Awn's artwork. Classic KOKE FM era Austin. B side is "Girls Today Don't Like to Sleep Alone" a song that describes a phenomenon I realized post UT; If you had told me that in high school I would have never believed you. By the end of '96 I was already realizing that I PREFER to sleep alone.
