Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs - 1963-1968 - The Complete Wooly Bully Years


Sam the Sham is the stage name of the American rock and roll singer Domingo "Sam” Samudio. Sam the Sham was known for his camp robe and turban (inspiring Norton Records' 1994 Turban Renewal) and hauling his equipment in a 1952 Packard hearse with maroon velvet curtains. Samudio, who is of Mexican American descent, made his singing debut in second grade, representing his school in a radio broadcast. Later, he took up guitar and formed a group with friends, one of whom was Trini Lopez. After graduating from high school, Samudio joined the navy, where he was known as "Big Sam." He lived in Panama for six years, until his discharge. In Dallas in 1961, Sam formed 'The Pharaohs', the name inspired from the costumes in Yul Brynner's portrayal as pharaoh in the 1956 film "The Ten Commandments". The other members were Carl Medke, Russell Fowler, Omar "Big Man” Lopez and Vincent Lopez. In 1962 the group made a record that did not sell. The Pharaohs disbanded in 1962. In May 1963, Vincent Lopez was playing for 'Andy and The Nightriders' in Louisiana. When their organist quit, Sam joined. 'Andy and The Nightriders' was Andy Anderson, David A. Martin, Vincent Lopez and Sam. 'The Nightriders' became house band at The Congo Club. It was here that Sam became "The Sham” in a dual reference to the fact that the band’s name was 'Andy and The Nightriders' and Andy Anderson was leader but everyone came to hear Sam sing and the fact that Sam could only play chords.In June 1963, "The Nightriders” headed for Memphis, Tennessee and became house band at The Diplomat. In late summer 1963, Andy Anderson and Vincent Lopez left to return to Texas. Sam and David A. Martin replaced them with Jerry Patterson and Ray Stinnett and changed the name to "Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs”. Shortly thereafter, the band added saxophonist Butch Gibson. After paying to record and press records to sell at gigs, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs wound up with the Pen label in Memphis. There, they recorded their first and biggest hit, "Wooly Bully", selling 3 million copies and reaching No. 2 on the Billboard charts on June 5, 1965 at a time when American pop music charts were dominated by the British Invasion. It was awarded a gold disc.
