"FIRST EVER COLLECTION OF '60S MGM SINGLES-A &"B SIDES! 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 this lovingly packaged 2-LP 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!!! "
