Sir Douglas Quintet - Nuevo Wave Live! - CD
Recorded in their hometown of Austin, Texas during their 1980s New Wave come back, this edition of the Quintet featured Augie Meyers on keyboards and Texas fiddler-guitarist Alvin Crow.
Doug Sahm was a singer, songwriter, and guitarist of legendary range and reputation. The first American musician to capitalize on the 1960s British invasion, Sahm vaulted to international fame leading a faux-British band called the Sir Douglas Quintet, whose hits included "She's About a Mover", "The Rains Came", and "Mendocino".
Doug Sahm was a Rock 'n' Roll innovator whose influence can only be matched among his fellow Texas musicians by Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Janis Joplin, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. "Texas Tornado" vividly captures the energy and intensity of this musician whose life burned out too soon, but whose music continues to Rock.
