The Tracker

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Initially released in 1976, The Tracker is one of many recyclings of the Sir Douglas Quintet's recordings for Huey P. Meaux's Tribe label. While there are two tracks "Hot Tomato Man," "Image of Me" that didn't show up on either of their original Tribe releases -- their debut, The Best of the Sir Douglas Quintet, and its follow-up, The Sir Douglas Quintet Is Back! -- nearly all of this has been available elsewhere, which makes this a less than necessary purchase for most listeners, even though the quality of the material is high and the album is sequenced well.

Perhaps sensing this, when Edsel reissued the album as part of their Meaux Crazy Cajun reissue campaign, they paired it with a Sir Doug oddity, Don Goldie with the Sir Douglas Quintet -- an album the mainstream Dixieland jazz trumpeter cut for Meaux featuring the group as his backing band. Half of the record consists of covers of Doug Sahm tunes including "the Tracker," naturally and half are Goldie originals, and all of it is a weird amalgam of Tex-Mex, Dixieland, and easy listening -- something that sounds interesting on paper, but is kind of dull on record. It's a curiosity, but not much more than that, but Sahm completists alone will find it worth having -- which applies to the original Tracker album, too, for that matter.
