Doug Sahm: Groover's Paradise [Warner Bros., 1974]
In which Doug Clifford and Stu Cook, the rhythm section that supposedly held Creedence in thrall, find a master whose core simplicity is completely unassailable. Those who consider him repetitious and derivative certainly won't enjoy these foolish songs of praise to the Lone Star State, his most unambitious music since the days of Together After Five. But they're the fools.
