These days, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs are best remembered for such infectious ?60s hits as ?Wooly Bully? and ?Lil? Red Riding Hood,? and for the sartorial splendor of turbaned frontman/organist Sam the Sham (n?e Domingo Samudio) and his bandmates. But the one-of-a-kind Memphis-by-way-of-Texas quintet produced a large and highly original body of R&B/blues/Tex-Mex/garage tunes that established them as one of the greatest singles bands of the 1960s. While the band?s wacky humor and flamboyant visual image may have threatened to brand them as a novelty act, their raw exuberance, rootsy grit and playfully subversive streak made it clear that Sam and his Pharaohs were the genuine article.
