About Sam the Sham

Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs were IT as far as mid-'60s Texas rock & roll goes. Woolly Bully alone marks them for canonization, but many of their other songs are the equal of that celebrated trash-rock masterpiece. Frankly salacious tunes like Little Red Riding Hood and How Do You Catch a Girl are powered by Domingo Sam Samudio's gloriously cheesy Farfisa organ and Butch Gibson's greasy sax, with the other Pharoahs letting rip with the sort of ragged-but-right groove that defines this style of music.
