AllMusic Review by

GET ON UP is the sound of longtime musical partners Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers growing up in public. Singer/guitarist Sahm and keyboardist Meyers were Tex-Mex pioneers, and this collection focuses on their earliest work, going all the way back to a 14-year-old Sahm’s recordings as Little Doug Sahm. The country and Mexican sides of Sahm and Meyers’s sound hadn’t come to the fore yet, so R&B is the main mode of expression on this fascinating document of two musical giants evolving before your very ears.
