Rumoured to be Dorothy Moore of 'Misty Blue' fame. For the B-side cover version she cranks the energy up with some kind of funky comdo organ sound and tears the roof off the tune. A-side is a sweet soul track that stands up by itself.
|comment #3:|| According to legend, The Sir Douglas Quintet was the brainchild of Houston producer Huey P. Meaux, who at the height of the British Invasion took a stack of Beatles records into a hotel room and studied them while getting drunk on wine. He found that the beats often resembled those of Cajun dance songs and hit upon the idea of a group that could blend the two sounds well enough to fool Beatles fans into giving a local band a chance. Huey cut “She's About A Mover” with Doug Sahm and group in 1965 and turned it into a classic.
In 1967 Dottie Cambridge did a gender change to the song and recorded “He's About A Mover” on MGM with a great Soul beat. Both sides of the record are good.
In researching Dottie Cambridge there seems to be a lot of speculation that she may in fact be Dorothy Moore. Dorothy recorded as a solo artist and as a member of the 60's group The Poppies on Epic Records. I cannot confirm whether this is true or not.
Back in the spring of 1965, a Texas group called The Sir Douglas Quintet had a hit with "She's About A Mover." Come forward three years, to March of 1968 and you have the song being revisited, again under the production of Huey Meaux.
