AllMusic Review by

Son of San Antonio: The Roots of Sir Douglas chronicles some of the earliest singles released by Doug Sahm fronting the Sir Douglas Quartet. Recorded between 1962-1966, these 15 songs encompass material originally released on Tribe Records. The majority of tracks are cover versions, including "Bacon Fat," "One Way Out (It's a Man Down There)," "In the Jailhouse Now #2," and "Wolverton Mountain." Of course, an early take of "She's About a Mover" is also included.
