dc.description.abstractContrary to its name, the "West Side Sound" did not actually originate on the West Side of San Antonio. Nor, for that matter, is it a singular "sound" that can be easily defined or categorized. In fact, the term "West Side Sound" was not widely used until San Antonio musician Doug Sahm applied it to his band, the West Side Horns, on his 1983 album, 'The West Side Sound Rolls Again.' Since then, journalists, music fans, and even Sahm himself have retrofitted the term to describe a particular style that emerged from San Antonio and the greater South Texas region beginning in the 1950s and continuing into the early twenty-first century.
