This and "Mendocino" are only two of the many nearly perfect tracks on this record, some of which give off the illusion (perhaps an accurate one) that they were simply tossed off without a whole lot of preperation. Texas Me" is genius on triple levels: there is the poetry of the lyrics, the soulful delivery from the singer, and finally the haunting recording fat with echoey, multitracked vocal and fiddle

Teeny Bopper, my teenage lover I caught your waves last night It sent my mind to wonderin' You're such a groove Please don't move Please stay in my love house by the river Fast talkin' guys with strange red eyes Have put things in your head And started your mind to wonderin' I love you so, please don't go Please. stay here with me in Mendocino Mendocino, Mendocino Where life's such a groove You blow your mind in the morning We used to walk through the park Make love along the way in Mendocino (Ah, play it, Augie! Yeah!) Hey!

The Sir Douglas Quintet came on the scene in 1965 with their first single, "She's About A Mover. They were from Texas, but tried to pass off as Brits to tie in with the British Invasion bands that were huge at the time (thus the band name). That ruse didn't last long, but in 1968 they became a California hippie band, albeit with a Tex-Mex sound. Mendocino" introduced this new look and got them back on the chart. It was their last substantial hit, but the group proved very prolific, with a string of recordings typically in the roots music genre. Sir Douglas Quintet is back. We'd like to thank all our beautiful friends all over the country, and all the beautiful vibrations. We love you. It's a very peace-and-love sentiment welcomed by the hippie crowd. More songs from Sir Douglas Quintet. More songs with places in the title. More songs about finding love. More songs from 1968.
