The band came out of the box swinging in 1965 with the international hit "She's About a Mover,” fronted by Doug Sahm alongside Vox organ player Augie Meyers and a trio of talented musicians. They quickly established a fanbase in Texas before relocating their mix of regional Mexican conjunto and British Invasion flash to San Francisco. Touring frequently, the Quintet was in top form when they visited the legendary Los Angeles nightclub the Ash Grove in 1971 for this performance. This previously unreleased live set makes its debut on this vinyl release and features "She's About a Mover" alongside the later "Mendocino" with six more party starters.
Side One 1) She’s About a Mover 2) Tortilla Flats 3) Be Real 4) Mendocino
