Sir Douglas Quintet: Live From Austin, Tx (2-LP, 180g Vinyl)

(New West) 17 Tracks

Wir reden hier von Tex Mex Rock'n' Roll!
In dieser Show vom 21. Januar 1981 trifft Doug Sahm (alias Sir Doug) auf die ursprünglichen Bandmitglieder Augie Meyers und Johnny Perez, zusammen mit dem legendären Alvin Crow an der Gitarre und Speedy Sparks am Bass für ein no-holds-barred, rip-snortin' Texas Rock'n' Roll Revival. Damals war das Sir Douglas Quintett die Antwort von Texas auf die britische Invasion. Mit der Ankunft der Beatles sahen Sir Doug & Co. ihre Chance, den rauen, chicano-beeinflussten Rock, den sie in den Joints um San Antonio gespielt hatten, zu brechen.

Sie zogen englische Anzüge an und schafften es 1965 mit "She's About A Mover" in die Charts. Niemand war sich ganz sicher, woher sie kamen, aber sie ritten die englische Pop-Welle zum Ruhm. Augies kitschige, pumpende Vox-Orgel-Akkorde und Sir Dougs chang-a-chang Rhythmusgitarre über Johnnys mexikanischen Schlagzeugstil, der sich von allem anderen zu dieser Zeit abhebt, sind ansteckend. Und das tut es auch heute noch. Sie können sich vielleicht nicht über "She's About A Mover" oder "Mendocino" hinsetzen, aber das ist OK. Doug ist nicht mehr bei uns, aber Sie können sicher sein, dass er immer noch irgendwo die Marmelade rauswirft. Terry Lickona (Produzent Austin City Limits)

Sir Douglas Quintet

  Texas Tornado

The 'Doug Sahm And Band' LP was released in January 1973; by April, it was clear that it would be a commercial bust, but Atlantic had already committed to one more album. Culling three tracks from the 'And Band' sessions, Atlantic sent Sahm to Wally Heider's San Francisco studio in April to round out the second album with some small, inexpensive sessions. Sahm's champion at Atlantic, Jerry Wexler, was watching his big dream crash down with the epic failure of the Willie Nelson and Doug Sahm projects. Wexler had already left the day-to-day running of Atlantic and had relocated to Florida. His relationship with company president Ahmet Ertegun was deteriorating, and Ertegun pulled the plug on Wexler's Nashville office in September 1974. In '75, Wexler left the label he hadn't founded but had helped to create.

 

Drawn from the San Francisco sessions, Texas Tornado was very much in the riff-driven Tex-Mex mode that Sahm had made his own. It cried out for the accordion and horns that Atlantic wouldn't spring for. The only single pulled from the album, it didn't make a blip anywhere. Doug stuck with the name, though. When he reappeared on ABC in 1976, his band was called Sir Doug & the Texas Tornados, and in 1990 he assembled another supergroup, this one comprising himself, Augie Meyers, Freddy Fender, and Flaco Jiminez. They too were dubbed the Texas Tornados. Success remained elusive but Sahm's reputation in the fifteen years since his death has risen ever higher.
