Album Review

As part of MCA's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection, the 12-track Best of Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs disc highlights the group's best-known material originally released on MGM in the mid-'60s. Besides the obvious hit singles "Wooly Bully" and "Lil' Red Riding Hood," the real highlights are the timeless "Ring Dang Doo," "(I'm in With) The Out Crowd," "Oh That's Good, No That's Bad," and "Ju Ju Hand." This is fun stuff with more groove and a slight edginess that, criminally, Sam the Sham was never given proper credit for.

Classic Rock -- Unbelievers Chided

Sam the Sham is ironically named, because he's the real deal. Besides timeless classics like Wooly Bully and Riding Hood, he and his band can rock hard.

This is good stuff.

Of course, any depressing music (e.g.) ALSO has meaning and purpose, but if one would splurge for this Sam the Sham compilation, that would be a good buy, etc... Anyways, enough senseless babble... nobody's gonna bring down these "gaywads" ... :)

i like this band

they may not be the best but check out number 2 its one of my favorites

Best known for their 1965 smash "Wooly Bully," which helped introduce Tex-Mex rhythms to mainstream rock & roll, Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs were formed in Dallas by lead singer Domingo Samudio, who took the name Sam the Sham from a joke about his inability as a vocalist. The Pharaohs consisted of guitarist Ray Stinnet, bassist David Martin, saxophonist Butch Gibson, and drummer Jerry Patterson. Before hitting it big with "Wooly Bully," a song about Samudio's cat, they recorded the independent...
