Doug Sahm & Friends, Thanksgiving 1972

If your house is anything like ours, music is as much a part of Thanksgiving as overindulgence in food and cannabis. There's Alice's Restaurant, of course, and maybe the "Massacree Revisited" live version. Without question, there's The Last Waltz on Blu-Ray, or the CD boxed set.

But how about a "new" tradition? On Thanksgiving '72, Doug Sahm took to the stage at the Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas with friends including Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Leon Russell. Aquarium Drunkard (a pretty much indispensable institution, if you're not familiar) has the entire show up for free download.

Happy Thanksgiving, Hi Fi Haven!
