AllMusic Review by

Supported by the Antone's house band, Doug Sahm runs through 15 R&B and doo-wop classics for Juke Box Music. Oddly there's no Tex-Mex here, considering that Sahm is one of the defining figures of the genre, but that's just a minor complaint, since the music here is just terrific. There's a wonderful relaxed quality to the performances, and the song selection boasts a number of forgotten gems, resulting in a little treasure for fans of R&B and American roots music.
