Sir Douglas Quintet: The Great Sir Douglas Quintet - Live (CD)

(2000/Goldies) 14 tracks - Bonustracks with Freddy Fender

THE GREAT SIR DOUGLAS QUINTET
This collection from the eclectic country-rock Tex-Mex band the Sir Douglas Quintet, led by the musical pioneer Doug Sahm, brings some of the Quintet's finest recordings together with four bonus tracks from the great Tex-Mex vocalist Freddy Fender. Mixing Southwestern-accented originals with classic rock and roll and covers of Bob Dylan and Tompall Glaser, the Quintet here reminds us of the profound influence it had on 1970's and '80's country and rock.

Born Douglas Saldana on November 6th, 1941, in San Antonio, Texas, Doug Sahm was first known professionally as "Little Doug." By the age of six, he was playing steel guitar; he appeared on the fabled Louisiana Hayride radio broadcast at the age of nine. As a local recording artist in his teens, he was already beginning to mix Mexican sounds with country, blues, and the new sound of rockabilly. Like Buddy Holly, another great Texan rocker, Sahm has drawn on an eclectic set of influences while always remaining ruggedly Southwestern.

The "Sir Douglas" in his first band was of course Doug Sahm himself: the band's name represented an attempt to cash in on the success of the British bands that swept the U.S. in the wake of the Beatles' popularity. In the early to mid-'60's, the Quintet toured with Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. "She's about a Mover," featured here, charted in the U.S. and reached the top fifteen in the U.K. "The Rains Came" was another successful radio hit for the band in that period.
"Mendocino" was released in 1969, after the band had moved to San Francisco, and reached the top thirty. Two more albums followed, and all the Quintet's albums have drawn strong support from musicians and aficionados. Yet sales were never inspiring; the band decided to dissolve in 1972.

Doug Sahm went on to mine the Tex-Mex vein ever more deeply-including making an influential recording of Freddy Fender's "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights"-and also became a leader in an important roots-music scene centered in Austin in the mid-to-late '70's. Sahm's sound has influenced such artists-each influential in their turn-as Joe Ely, Steve Earle, Los Lobos, and many others.

That Freddy Fender is also represented here is an added pleasure that helps to make this collection a useful introduction to the 1970's Tex-Mex-influenced rock and country that have had such a crucial impact on today's roots music.
