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

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

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.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "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.
