Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove
This documentary tells the story of Doug Sahm, the wild man musicians' musician and unsung hero of Texas music. A country music child prodigy and teenage rhythm & blues dynamo who caused a riot at his San Antonio high school, Sahm emerged as an international rock star leading the Sir Douglas Quintet. He landed in San Francisco just in time for the Summer of Love in 1967. He returned to Texas as the cowboy hippie rocker who built a burgeoning music scene in Austin before forming the Tex-Mex super group The Texas Tornados. A kinetic, quirky character with a solid sense of place as well as an innate wanderlust, Doug Sahm's story is the story of Texas music.
GRAM PARSONS - Fallen Angel
Gandulf Hennig directs GRAM PARSONS: Fallen Angel this documentary about country-rock musician Gram Parsons, as told through heavy use of archival footage as well as the still photographs provided by Parsons' friends and family. Parsons was an influential musician as a member of the Flying Burrito Brothers as well as The Byrds. His difficulties in dealing with his wealthy background, however, as well as issues with drugs and alcohol cloud the circumstances surrounding the singer's unusual death.
