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. It's too bad this collection is heavy on the silly novelty songs, but it's still worthwhile. And while some ignorant few may loudly proclaim their lack of appreciation, I can only pity them. This is good stuff.
..The Sham fixin' to slam his keyboard on 'chuck norris obvi'
Although Wooly Bully (and the following song) might alone be willingly purchased for even half the album's price, this oldie album is a real "pick-me-up" - a talisman, of sorts ... What would you rather have - an emo trio moaning minor, accidental tones of suicide, or the red-coated silly entertainer(s) above?? 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" ... :)
