Sir Douglas Quintet: The Mono Singles '68-'72 (2-LP)

(2011/SUNDAZED) 22 tracks - Gatefold/Klappcover

Mono A & B sides singles collection from influential Tex-Mex combo! Texas-bred singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Doug Sahm was one of the most important musicians ever to emerge from the Lone Star state, and an inspiration to multiple generations of roots-conscious rock 'n' rollers. Sahm did much of his most beloved work as leader of the seminal Sir Douglas Quintet, the audaciously eclectic band that first burst onto the national scene in 1965. With trusty sidekick Augie Meyers providing distinctive support on the Vox organ, the Quintet delivered an infectious, eclectic mix that encompassed Tex-Mex border pop, raw garage-rock, hipster honky-tonk, horn-driven R&B and more.

The Sir Douglas Quintet's most productive and influential period was its late-'60s/early-'70s stint with Mercury Records and its sister labels Smash and Philips. That period saw the SDQ relocate from Texas to San Francisco and record some of their most enduring and adventurous music. And that music never sounded better than on the mono mixes that graced the singles that the band released during that period, which are collected on this deluxe set. The Mono Singles' 22 songs include the band's 1969 signature smash "Mendocino," along with such Sahm standards as "At the Crossroads," "Dynamite Woman," "Nuevo Laredo," "Texas Me," "And It Didn't Even Bring Me Down," "Michoacan" and his heartfelt rendition of Freddy Fender's "Wasted Days, Wasted Nights," plus a selection of rare non-album B-sides.

The collection also features Sahm's historic Nashville recording "Be Real," which he released under the pseudonym "Wayne Douglas" in an attempt to break into the conservative mainstream country market. This unique collection has been sourced from the original analog mono masters. This high-definition vinyl 2-LP set comes with extensive liner notes and lavish artwork. With these classic tracks now on vinyl, Doug Sahm's rootsy rock 'n' roll spirit shines brighter than ever!

Artist description "Sir Douglas Quintet"

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.
