Sir Douglas Quintet - Bacon Fat
Welcome back to Doug Sahm Month. Yesterday we served up the SDQ's version of The Rains Came, so tonight we'll check out the other side of this astonishingly superb 45. Despite what the label here says, Bacon Fat was written by the larger than life R&B kingpin Andre Williams. I have no idea how the name Syd Nathan (president of King records in Cincinnati) was listed as the author. In any event, the Sir Douglas Quintet really nails this one. It's one of my all time favorite 45s.
