Sam The Sham And The Pharaohs • The MGM Singles 1965-73



 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 (née 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.

Throughout the second half of the ’60s, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs turned out a lengthy string of killer seven-inchers. Many of those singles boasted non-album B-sides that were as memorable as their better-known A-sides. Now, for the first time ever, Sundazed Music has gathered both sides of every one of the band’s original MGM Records singles on these lovingly packaged compact disc collection. The sizzling set includes such immortal Pharaohs classics as “Wooly Bully,” “Lil’ Red Riding Hood,” “Ju Ju Hand,” “Ring Dang Doo,” “Red Hot,” “The Hair on My Chinny Chin Chin,” “How Do You Catch a Girl” and “(I’m in With) The Out Crowd,” along with an amazing assortment of rare non-album B-sides, solo efforts and side projects. These long-out-of-print gems have been sourced from the original MGM masters and sound better than ever!!!

Formed in Dallas and led by a dynamic turban-wearing lead singer and organist named Domingo Samudio, Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs were a garage bar band gone huge (it has been long rumored that they could play six hours straight without repeating a tune), and by mixing blues, R&B, and Tex-Mex together with a loopy sense of humor and sly lyrics, they stomped into pop history with the iconic party anthem “Wooly Bully,” which hit the number two spot on the pop charts right in the middle of the British Invasion in 1965.

Aside from that record, though, and “Li’l Red Riding Hood” a year later in 1966, the group wouldn’t have that kind of chart success again, and Samudio and his band went down into most people’s annals as a one-hit wonder. This irresistible set, which collects all of the Pharaohs’ singles and B-sides for MGM Records between 1965 and 1968, plus Samudio's 1973 comeback single for the label (he had left MGM for Atlantic in 1970, only to return for that one release), proves there was a lot more to the story.

Tracks like “Ju Ju Hand” (from 1965), “(I’m in With) The Out Crowd” (also 1966), “Banned in Boston” (1967), and “Old MacDonald Had a Boogaloo Farm” (1968) all display a delightfully subversive joy in being wryly silly, and they don’t get in the way of dancing, either. Oh, and then there's the wonderful kiss-off single "I Couldn't Spell !! - @!" from 1968 -- no, Sam the Sham was far from being a one-hit wonder and the romping, stomping proof of that is collected here.

 Hoy en día, Sam the Sham y los faraones son recordados por éxitos tan contagiosos como "Wooly Bully" y "Lil' Red Riding Hood", y por el esplendor de la sastrería del líder/organista con turbante Sam the Sham (de soltera Domingo Samudio) y sus compañeros de banda. Pero el único quinteto de Memphis por el camino de Texas produjo un cuerpo grande y muy original de temas de R&B/blues/Tex-Mex/garage que los estableció como una de las bandas de singles más grandes de la década de 1960. Mientras que el humor estrafalario y la imagen visual extravagante de la banda pueden haber amenazado con marcarlos como un acto novedoso, su cruda exuberancia, su arraigado arraigo y su vena lúdica subversiva dejaron en claro que Sam y sus faraones eran un artículo genuino.

A lo largo de la segunda mitad de los años 60, Sam el Sham y los faraones produjeron una larga serie de asesinos de siete pulgadas. Muchos de esos sencillos se jactaban de tener caras B sin álbum que eran tan memorables como sus caras A más conocidas. Ahora, por primera vez, Sundazed Music ha reunido ambos lados de cada uno de los sencillos originales de MGM Records de la banda en esta colección de discos compactos cariñosamente empaquetados. El set incluye clásicos tan inmortales como "Wooly Bully", "Lil' Red Riding Hood", "Ju Ju Ju Hand", "Ring Dang Doo", "Red Hot", "The Hair on My Chinny Chin Chin Chin", "How Do You Catch a Girl" y "(I'm in With) The Out Crowd", junto con un increíble surtido de raros B-sides sin álbum, esfuerzos en solitario y proyectos secundarios. Estas gemas han sido extraídas de los maestros originales de MGM y suenan mejor que nunca.

Formada en Dallas y dirigida por un dinámico cantante y organista de turbante llamado Domingo Samudio, Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs era una banda de garage bar que se había vuelto enorme (se rumorea desde hace mucho tiempo que podían tocar seis horas seguidas sin repetir una melodía), y al mezclar blues, R&B y Tex-Mex, junto con un sentido del humor loco y letras astutas, se adentraron en la historia del pop con el emblemático himno de la fiesta "Wooly Bully", que se convirtió en el número dos de las listas de éxitos en medio de la invasión británica en 1965.

Aparte de ese disco, sin embargo, y "Li'l Red Riding Hood" un año después, en 1966, el grupo no volvería a tener ese tipo de éxito en las listas de éxitos, y Samudio y su banda cayeron en los anales de la mayoría de la gente como una maravilla de un solo éxito. Este irresistible set, que recoge todos los sencillos y las caras B de los Pharaohs para MGM Records entre 1965 y 1968, más el sencillo de Samudio de 1973 que regresó al sello (había dejado MGM para Atlantic en 1970, sólo para volver a ese disco), prueba que había mucho más en la historia.

Temas como "Ju Ju Ju Hand" (desde 1965), "I'm in With) The Out Crowd" (también 1966), "Banned in Boston" (1967), y "Old MacDonald Had a Boogaloo Farm" (1968) muestran una alegría deliciosamente subversiva por ser irónicamente tontos, y tampoco interfieren con el baile. Oh, y luego está el maravilloso sencillo de despedida "I Couldn't Spell! - desde 1968 -- no, Sam el Sham estaba lejos de ser una maravilla de un solo golpe y la prueba de eso se recoge aquí.
