Sir Douglas Quintet - 1969 - Mendocino

Sir Douglas Quintet was a country rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Despite their British sounding name, they came out of San Antonio, Texas and are perhaps best known for their 1965 hit single written by Doug Sahm, the 12-bar blues "She's About a Mover" named the number one 'Texas' song by Texas Monthly. With a Vox Continental organ riff provided by Augie Meyers and soulful vocals  from lead singer and guitarist Doug Sahm, the track features a Tex-Mex  sound. Other influences came in from blues, jazz, and contemporary rock. Mendocino was the third album by The Sir Douglas Quintet, released in April 1969 on Smash Records. The release of the album was expedited as the result of the top 40 success of the title song. The album also contains their best-known song, "She's About a Mover". It reached number eighty-one on the Billboard Pop Albums Chart. Neon Records re-released the album in 2001 and 2008.
