Guitarist, composer, arranger, and songwriter Doug Sahm was a knowledgeable music historian and veteran performer equally comfortable in a range of styles, including Texas blues, country, rock & roll, Western swing, and Cajun. Born November 6, 1941, in San Antonio, TX, he began his performing career at age nine when he was featured on a San Antonio area radio station, playing steel guitar…

Sparks had contacts to Europe, to New Rose Records in France, and they really wanted an album by the Texas Mavericks. So they went into a studio and recorded one. It was titled Who Are These Masked Men? At that time Doug wanted to be somebody else, so they put on masks and made up some fantasy names. Thanks to his good contacts in Europe Sahm booked a European tour parallel to the album release, which also brought the quintet to Germany in 1987.

Doug Sahm once sang, "You just can't live in Texas if you don't have a lot of soul," and, as a proud son of the Lone Star state, he seemed bent on proving that every time he stepped in front of a microphone. Whether he was playing roots rock, garage punk, blues, country, norteño, or (as was often the case) something that mixed up several of the above-mentioned ingredients, Doug Sahm always sounded like Doug Sahm – a little wild, a little loose, but always good company, and a guy with a whole lot of soul who knew a lot of musicians upon whom the same praise could be bestowed. Pulling together a single disc compilation that would make sense of the length and breadth of the artist's recording career (which spanned five decades) would be just about impossible (the licensing hassles involved with the many labels involved would probably scotch such a project anyway), but this disc, which boasts 22 songs recorded over the course of eight years, is a pretty good starter for anyone wanting to get to know Sahm's music.

Sir Douglas Quintet - 2 albums

The Sir Douglas Quintet was for the TexMex music what Chuck Berry was for Rock 'n' Roll. Doug Sahm and his friends knew how to party with their great mix of rock, boogie, blues, country and norteno conjunto music and they were of great influence to bands like Los Lobos or Los Lonely Boys. I've posted two early albums with bonus tracks: 1968's Sir Douglas Quintet + 2 = Honkey Blues and 1970's Together After Five.

Doug Sahm first used the name "Texas Tornado" in 1973, writing a song and naming an album after it. He first used it for a band in 1976, crediting Texas Rock for Country Rollers to Sir Doug & the Texas Tornados but the Texas Tornados didn't really become a group until 1990, when Sahm formed the Tex-Mex all-stars with his idol Freddy Fender, his right-hand man Augie Meyers, and Flaco Jiménez. Their first album released in two versions, one in English and one in Spanish caused a roots rock sensation upon its release, winning a Grammy for Best Mexican American/Tejano Performance for its track "Soy de San Luis" and helping to establish the band as a brand. Three albums followed quickly over the next six years the last, 4 Aces, appeared after a rush-released 1994 compilation The Best of Texas Tornados then the band faded away, turning into a touring concern and then an everlasting tribute to Sahm and Fender once those two giants passed away.

Double CDs with generously full booklets with complete song-by-song notes, rare photos, and first-person accounts. Volume 6 – 1973: The leading edge of the country rock scene was shifting from Los Angeles to Austin. In March 1973, 'Crawdaddy' magazine highlighted the Austin for the first time. Pretty soon, everyone was catching on. In September, 'Billboard' devoted a full page to Austin, calling out Willie Nelson, Doug Sahm, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Billy Joe Shaver.

Doug Sahm, aka "Sir Doug" of the Sir Douglas Quintet, rock & roll's first long-haired redneck, was a walking compendium of Texas music styles. Whether it was Texas blues, Tex-Mex rock & roll, garage, country, R&B, soul, singer/songwriter, and anything in between, Sir Doug could wail it and nail it. What's more, he would tell you so. Just the natural, Texas facts, ma'am. Most of this two-disc collection is culled from the Sir Douglas Quintet's Tribe Records years, produced by "Crazy Cajun" Huey P. Meaux, when the SDQ burst upon a Beatle landscape with one of rock & roll's all-time anthems, "She's About a Mover." The trademark sound of Sir Doug's country-boy, blues/rock vocals and Augie Meyer's simple, driving Vox organ lines, evident on "She's About a Mover," is the original blueprint for garage rock.
