Li'l Red Riding Hood

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," the band recorded the independent single "Haunted House," which helped them 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.

Well, yeah, they started out in Texas, but soon moved to Memphis. As a teenager, I saw them at a local roller skating rink in 1965 right after "Wooly Bully" came out. Most of the crowd was actually skating! So, my friends and I stood right up next to the band, who didn't have a stage. They were just set up beside the skating floor. So much for having a hit record. Some of the band even talked to us after the set.
Sam wore his turban, too. A few years later, a female friend of mine in college dated Sam for a while. And he still lives in Memphis. Thanks for the memories.
