The Sir Douglas Quintet, five kids from San Antonio with an upscale moniker, scored massive hits with "She's About a Mover" and "The Rains Came" in 1965-66 by injecting the pumping Tex-Mex sound into the British Invasion. The Best Of The Sir Douglas Quintet – the ultra-rare original album, with two bonus tracks – features the soulful vocals of Doug Sahm and the signature keyboards of Augie Meyers. The Sir Douglas Quintet Is Back!, a 14-track sister compilation – stuffed with singles, B-sides and vintage unissued '65–'66 material, is the Sir Douglas Quintet album that never was. Both albums are a double-barreled loving tribute to the scintillating vocal style and songwriting talent of the late Doug Sahm.
