Background: Released in 1970, Together After Five is the fourth album by Doug Sahm and the Sir Douglas Quintet. The album did not chart.
A supreme example of the Doug Sahm sound and aesthetic is at work here in their third complete studio album. There is perhaps the best recorded version of the Augie Meyers “cheap organ” sound, a well from which many a garage rock organist hath drunken deep. And it is great the way this instrument emerges out of arrangements emphasizing stark interplay between acoustic guitar and drums. A real ringer but one of the highlights of the album is the instrumental “T-Bone Shuffle,” which rivals the Art Ensemble of Chicago for raucous boogie on the edge of lunacy.
