Songs of Sahm" does a great job of putting this all in perspective, and the song choices are terrific as well. Some have said that the album is imitative, but so what? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Bottle Rockets flatter Doug wonderfully, with lots of energy and freshness. As for the Bottle Rockets fans who might not get it. I'm not surprised, but if they would put aside their preconceived notions and try to have some fun, they might gain an appreciation of one of the great blenders of rock, conjunto, and psychedelic music.

It isn't Rootsman Sahm the Bottle Rockets care about, it's Sir Douglas the Hippie-a simple Texas boy high not just on anything he can smoke or gobble but on the fellowship of strangers he knows would groove on him even if he wasn't slightly famous. Mendocino" and "Stoned Faces Don't Lie" glow with possibility, evoking '60s utopianism far more concretely than any precious latter-day studio psychedelica. The changes in this city made a fool.
Henneman's wry tales of idle worrying like "Kit Cat Clock" might come close, but the Bottle Rockets have built a firm reputation for rockers like "Idiot's Revenge", "Radar Gun", and "Brand New Year" that wouldn't have sounded out of place in a vintage Skynyrd set. Henneman's lyrics often take notice of the small things and make them mean more than they. Because of that, Songs of Sahm is a difficult album to get your head around. It doesn't fit at all into the Bottle Rockets canon, but it's a splendid tribute to Sahm - probably the next best thing to a compilation of Sahm's actual recordings. If you're a Bottle Rockets fan, though, go ahead and listen to The Brooklyn Side first.
