Sir Douglas Rode a Horse

CleonValentine

I grew up listening to the Stones, Beatles, Sam the Sham, Animals, et al, and then here came the Sir Douglas Quintet and their hit, She's a Body Mover, of as it was cut She's about a Mover. That song was a great one but it was just a scratch on the surface of Doug Sahm's self. His best stuff is the stuff he did before and after his hit and the others like Mendocino. Even the B-side of Mover, The Rains Came, was such a great song. What a talent!

Not just solo Doug Sahm...

When I bought this album in 1980, it was called "The Best of the Sir Douglas Quintet." This repackaging contains the same versions in the original running order and includes the original Quintet (featuring Augie Meyers)on all except four cuts. A couple of personnel changes occur on tracks 5 & 8, while Sahm is the only original member on tracks 11 & 12. The essential songs are here, and the entire set is well worth downloading.

They Say All Music Guide

Fuel 2000 is a decent enough, if not extraordinary reissue imprint that has done a slew of fine vanguard jazz titles from the BYG/Actuel catalog, as well as nearly countless rock, blues, and R&B reissues since the 1990s. They often skimp on decent liners but their packages are usually assembled with some attention to detail when it comes to track selection. This set by the late, great, Doug Sahm is no exception. Containing 26 cuts and spanning a pair of discs, the first centers on his voluminous early material, while the second one focuses on the period that established his legend in the first place with the Sir Douglas Quintet. While the material on disc two has been well documented elsewhere, the stuff on the “Doug Sahm — in the Heart Of Texans” slab is an eclectic mix of cuts from various periods in his long career recording for various imprints such as Harlem, Cobra, and Warrior with bands as diverse as the Mar-Keys, the Pharoahs, the Knights, and the Dell-Kings as well as under his own name. Sound on this baby varies a bit, and the notes aren’t terribly detailed, but they are sufficient. For the money, this is a pretty fine introduction to one of rock & roll’s most important if under-celebrated talents. – Thom Jurek
