"Doug Sahm And Band" and associated Atlantic 7" singles


The front sleeve of this album is a drawing by Gilbert Shelton, one of the most important artists of the US underground comic scene (he created "The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers"). Gilbert Shelton was also the artist of another excellent album cover: Shakedown Street from The Grateful Dead (Arista, 1978)

Doug Sahm - "Doug Sahm And Band" - mono promo vinyl LP, Atlantic SD 7254 (USA), Jan 1973:
This album was recorded at Atlantic Recording Studios, New York, 9-12 Oct 1972 and produced by Jerry Wexler. This mono version was not released commercially. Renaud Depierreux's copy comes with the same stickers and white promo record labels plus two press inserts, one double-sided. The first press insert is a reproduction of an article from "Rolling Stone" magazine, 9 Nov 1972, and the second press insert is a reproduction of an article from "Words & Music", Jan 1973. This album was previously listed as Dec 1972, but Jan 1973 must be the release date and the record labels are dated 1973.

Doug Sahm - "Doug Sahm And Band" - stereo vinyl LP release, Atlantic SD 7254 (USA), 11 Jan 1973:
This album was previously listed as Dec 1972, but Tim Dunn gives the US release date as 11 Jan 1973, and all the record labels are dated 1973.


Atlantic SD 7254 (USA) - front scan by Olav Langum
This album was recorded at Atlantic Recording Studios, New York, 9-12 Oct 1972 and produced by Jerry Wexler.

The US release has a generic paper inner sleeve with details of 16 contemporary Atlantic albums on each side. The Atlantic Records address on the rear of the sleeve is 1841 Broadway, New York, NY 10023. During 1973 Atlantic Records moved to 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10019, and this new address is on the sleeve of the Dec 1973 Texas Tornado album below.

There are at least two variant record labels with differences as shown. The second copy shown comes in the same outer and inner sleeves: this copy has a Warner sticker glued on to the inside of the sleeve with "FEB-11-1973".

Atlantic SD 7254 (USA) - Side 2 scan by Manuel García Jara (variant 2)

The second variant record labels are different from those of the first variant, especially the Side 1 label:

Both copies were made in different pressing plants: the printed matrix numbers at the bottom of the labels of the first variant are "ST-A-722705/06-RI" and those of the second variant are "ST-A-722705/06-MO".

The matrix numbers of commercial Atlantic Records are very easy to interpret, e.g. "ST-A-722705/06-RI":

Pressing plant codes: "RI" = Philips Recording Co., Richmond, IN. "MO" = Monarch Records, Los Angeles, CA.

Doug Sahm - "Doug Sahm And Band" - stereo vinyl LP release, Atlantic ATL 40466 (NL), 1973:


Atlantic ATL 40466 (NL) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This album can be identified as the Dutch release of this album even though "Made In Holland" is not printed anywhere on the sleeve or on the record labels.

The front sleeve has the Atlantic logo at bottom right with the catalogue number below. The rear sleeve is almost identical to that of the US release, even misleadingly including the text "Printed in U.S.A.". However the sleeve was printed in Holland - there is a small detail at bottom right of the rear, "A HABO SLEEVE" ("Habo" was a well-known Dutch printer who printed the sleeves of the Dutch releases of the Beatles albums amongst others). Also, the record labels have the logo of the Dutch copyright organisation "STEMRA".

The rare Spanish release of this album was made, printed and distributed by Hispavox for Atlantic Records. It has a fully laminated sleeve. The front has an exclusive catalogue number ("HATS" = Hispavox Atlantic Stereo) at top right and the Atlantic logo at bottom right. The rear has the tracklist and musician credits in Spanish.

This album was made and distributed in Australia by WEA Records Pty. Limited. It has the same front sleeve with the Atlantic logo and catalogue number as the US release.

Atco ATLP 050 (Brazil) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This is the rare Brazilian release of this album. Like all records from the WEA group in Brazil, it was made by Discos Continental/Gravaçôes Electricas (the same manufacturer and distributor of Planet Waves and Before The Flood for Asylum Records, and of the second editions of Desire and Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits for CBS). This Brazilian album was released by Atco, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records, but not by Atlantic itself. The sleeve was printed in Brazil by Miruna Litografia Ltda.

The record labels of the copy owned by Izidio Filho have slightly different placement of the variable information (album title, catalogue number, song titles) from those of Manuel García Jara's copy.

Edsel ED CD 154 (UK, 1985) - front scan by Peter Gilmer

The album was re-released on both vinyl and CD by Edsel in the UK in 1985 - information from Peter Gilmer. Ronald Born has a 1990s copy of Edsel ED CD 154 which was made in France but has the same front and rear as shown. It was released on CD in Japan as Atlantic AMCY-46 around 1997, and this CD not only retains the original album art but is reportedly an excellent remastering - information from Rob van Estrik. The Japanese release has a white obi with red text and price ¥2,348 (¥2,280 excluding tax). There are no dates on the obi, so the date of 1997 is an estimate. The album was released on CD in the USA by Collector's Choice Music in 2006 and was re-released on 31 Oct 2008.

The US promo single has (Is Anybody Going To) San Antone on both sides in mono and stereo and comes in two variants. The picture of the mono side (R-0090M) of the first variant is from the booklet with the 2003 Rhino Handmade 2CD compilation The Genuine Texas Groover, see 2003. This variant of the single has "PLUG SIDE " on the A-side as well as "VOCALS DOUG SAHM & BOB DYLAN" under the song title. Hans Seegers' US promo copy is from a different Atlantic pressing plant with a variant label design - changes include the title on two lines, "MONO" on the left instead of the right, and the text "PLUG SIDE" is missing. The stereo side (R-0090, as on the albums) has the same label design but is in plain blue instead of red/white. I don't have a picture of the stereo side of the first variant.

The Canadian commercial single, presumably stereo, comes in a generic Atlantic Canada sleeve and has black/red Atlantic labels. There is a sticker with "21958" on both labels of this copy, probably from a radio station.

Doug Sahm & Band - "(Va Alguien A) San Antonio [(Is Anybody Going To) San Antone]/Amor Marchito [Faded Love]" - 7" promo stereo single, Atlantic/Hispavox 45-2946 (Spain), 1973:


Atlantic/Hispavox 45-2946 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
In the period 1970-74 Hispavox released some very rare singles to promote albums of the companies distributed by this Spanish company (Warner, Elektra, Atlantic, etc.). All of them are promotional singles with white labels and a monochrome sleeve made of fragile paper (commercial singles made by Hispavox always had excellent quality sleeves). These promo singles were pressed exclusively for radio stations and they often have different B-sides from the commercial singles and some of them, like this Doug Sahm single, were never released as commercial records.

This single, with an unique worldwide B-side (Amor Marchito [Faded Love]), was made to promote the album Doug Sahm and Band released in Spain in limited quantity of copies. This means that, unlike the single released in the USA, the UK and elsewhere, Bob plays on both sides. The fragile sleeve is not in perfect condition. The front has the Gilbert Shelton illustration with the usual Spanish promo text printed, not a sticker, and song titles in Spanish. The rear has the Hispavox logo and address. The record labels are white with titles in Spanish and in English. The A-side has a sticker of a radio station and "DOUG SAHM AND BAND" printed in red, not present on the B-side.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

Doug Sahm & Band - "(Is Anybody Going To) San Antone/It's Gonna Be Easy" - 7" stereo(?) single, Atlantic 45-2946 (Australia), 1973:


Atlantic 45-2946 (Australia) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (R-0090 or R-0090M)
This Australian 7" single has the same catalogue number as the US single but was released with an exclusive different B-side. This again means that, unlike the single released in the USA, the UK and elsewhere, Bob plays on both sides. It came in a generic Atlantic sleeve as shown.

However, is it mono or stereo? The record labels do not have "Stereo" to the right of the centre hole unlike the earlier 1973 Atlantic Australia 7" single example from Led Zeppelin shown.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

"Texas Tornado" and associated Atlantic 7" singles


The Sir Douglas Band - "Texas Tornado" - stereo vinyl LP, Atlantic SD 7287 (USA), 3 Dec 1973:
This album consists of four new tracks including the title track recorded at Wally Heider Recording Studios, San Francisco, CA, and seven tracks recorded at the
Doug Sahm & Band sessions, Atlantic Recording Studios, New York, 9-12 Oct 1972. For the original Doug Sahm & Band album, see above.  During 1973 Atlantic Records moved to 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10019, and this new address is on the rear of the sleeve. This is also the address on the record labels of Hans Seeger's copy, but Manuel García Jara has a copy of the very earliest release of the album, where the record labels still have the previous address of 1841 Broadway, New York, NY 10023, as on the sleeve and record labels of Doug Sahm & Band above. The rear sleeve of this earliest release also has the Rockefeller Plaza address!
