Sam The Sham And The Pharaohs

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 single "Haunted House," which helped the band get a deal with MGM. Following "Wooly Bully," the group recorded a series of largely novelty singles, but only "Li'l Red Riding Hood" approached the success of its predecessor. Frustrated at being perceived as a talentless novelty act, Samudio broke up the Pharaohs in 1967 and recorded as the Sam the Sham Revue, and adopted the name Sam Domingo in 1970. His lone solo LP, Sam, Hard & Heavy, featured slide guitarist Duane Allman, but failed to establish him as a major talent. Samudio contributed two songs to the 1982 film The Border and later moved to Memphis and became a street preacher. "Wooly Bully," of course, remains a bar band staple. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Check out You Tube---I'm Going Upstairs---- w i t h Duane Allman (on a killer slide) & Sam (Domingo) Samudio on vocals!! Great old John Lee Hooker tune!
I think they're a great band. A good blend of SAMS soulful vocals with some good ol' garage rock
my 10 year old son sang this song in front of about 100 ppl and did a great job of it, Lil Red riding hood.... Love it.
Why were Mexican Americans from Texas wearing turbans. Otherwise fantastic tex mex. If you like this stuff check out Sir Douglas Quintet.

For the sixties, the sexual induendos are over the place with this song.

Best first concert a 9 year old could see at the Sam Houston Colosseum.
First record I ever owned, mom got it at garage sale and we would dress up in turbans and rock out.
I grew up listening to these guys.
