Doug Sahm was a a child prodigy, appearing on radio at the age of five and became a featured player (steel guitar, fiddle, and mandolin) on the the Louisiana Hayride radio program, appearing with stars such as Webb Pierce, and Hank Williams.  For several years, Doug had been pestering producer Huey P. Meaux to record him, so one day Huey called him and  told him to grow his hair, form a band, and write a tune with a Cajun two-step beat. He did, and Sahm scored an international hit in 1965 with "She’s About a Mover." and also charted with "The Rains Came," After being arrested for possession of drugs, the Sir Douglas Quintet disbanded and Sahm moved to San Francisco, CA, to avoid a heavy fine. Doug Sahm died in 1999.
