Doug Sahm Groovers Paradise gave the Texas maverick the chance to cut a star-studded, big-budget album, shuffling him off to New York where Wexler and Arif Mardin helmed a series of sessions with an ever-revolving cast of musicians featuring Bob Dylan, Dr.
John, David "Fathead" Newman, David Bromberg, and Flaco Jimenez, in addition to such Sir Doug stalwarts as Augie Meyers and the rhythm section of Doug Sahm Groovers Paradise Jack Barber and drummer George Rains all but the latter were in the last incarnation Doug Sahm Groovers Paradise the Quintet, raising Doug Sahm Groovers Paradise question of whether the group was indeed finished or not, but such is the nature of Sahm's discography.
