Shandon Sahm Checks In: 'Of Course It's Doug!'

RECEIVED Tue., July 25, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Okay, this is getting stupid! I would expect this in the Ohio or Iowa type Chronicle. But The Austin Chronicle? Yes, the guy in the picture with Jerry Wexler is the one and only Sir Dad Sahm [“TCB,” Music, July 14]. Why did no one call me or Shawn on such a simple thing as the Atlantic Session photos? How do I know? Well, for one, Dad used to carry a white comb in his back pocket! Plus, the Sahm family has tons of photos of that same session! Still, no phone call to back that up! I'm so sad, Raoul; now that you have confirmation tell everyone, OK? Here's a little bit of info that you don't know ... the Atlantic Session is also the Red Headed Stranger era. Wexler signed Willie right after these sessions! Again, no phone call! You've gotta be on crack! Call next time, OK?

P.S. p.s. Check out the white comb in his back pocket in the photo.
