Doug Sahm AKA Sir Doug was a Texas rock & roll legend and pioneer. True, there were others before him (Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison come to mind) but the Sir Douglas Quintet counterattacked the British invasion of the mid 1960’s with their own brand of Chicano-influenced rock that they had been playing around their hometown of San Antonio. Wearing their tight-fitting, English-looking suits, they hit the charts with ‘She’s About A Mover’ in 1965, riding the waves with Doug’s incessant guitar twangs and Augie Meyer’s much-imitated, two-to-a-beat Vox electric organ chords.

This performance, recorded October 14, 1975, came after Doug had temporarily retired the Sir Douglas name but features original member Meyer along with musical compadres Martin Steitle, John Barber, Steve McDaniels and Harry Hess. All the Sir Douglas Quintet classics are here, including ‘She’s About A Mover’, ‘Mendocino’ and ‘Rains Came’ and Doug ventures into other musical territory ranging from T-Bone Walker to Bob Wills.

Pressed on vinyl for the first time.

Gatefold double LP on 180g vinyl.
