Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: 1+1+1=4 (1970)/THE RETURN OF DOUG SALDANA (1971).
Adapter: Doug Sahm.
Recording information: Amigos De Musica, Los Angeles, CA (1969-1971); Columbus Tower Studios, San Francisco, CA (1969-1971); Devonshire Studios, North Hollywood, CA (1969-1971); Mercury Sound Studios, San Francisco, CA (1969-1971); Monument Studios, Nashville, TN (1969-1971).
Raven's two-fer of the Sir Douglas Quintet's 1+1+1=4 and The Return of Doug Salda¤a, released in 1970 and 1971 respectively, appeared roughly around the same time Audium reissued the two albums separately with bonus tracks, but it's tough to complain about a sudden surplus of their Smash material when it was so very hard to find on CD for many years. Though one other album for Smash followed -- 1973's Rough Edges, consisting mainly of earlier sessions, three tracks of which are added as bonus tracks here (along with "Michoacan" from the soundtrack of the 1972 film Cisco Pike) -- these two records effectively capped off their stunning string of LPs for the label and compliment each other very well. 1+1+1 is a little sunnier and a little more open, Return is a grittier roadhouse record, but both are wonderful examples of Doug Sahm's freewheeling, all-encompassing roots music, filled with great songs and great performances that sound effortless and timeless. As to whether you should get the individual reissues or this two-fer, it's really a toss-up since the bonus tracks on those aren't available here and vice versa -- pick whichever is either cheaper or easier to find, just as long as you get this music in some form. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
