Sir Douglas Quintet, 1981

 Sir Douglas Quintet  -  I Keep Wishing For You  (3:12)

Even in the early 80s, the Sir Douglas Quintet had the Midas Touch, in terms of quality if not necessarily commercial success.  I Keep Wishing For You comes from noted Texas songwriter Butch Hancock, a member, along with Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Joe Ely, of the Flatlanders.  This one gets my vote for 1981 Song Of The Year.

Border Wave, means DSahm picked up on the "New Wave" rage, which was popular then. At least that was my impression. Amsterdamman.
