The thing about listening to the best of Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs is that you have done that by the time you get to the third track on this Millennium Collection done for the 20th Century Masters series. "Wooly Bully" made it to #2 on the Billboard singles chart in 1965 and the next year "Li'l Red Riding Hood" did the same. Although the group had another seven songs that made it to the charts (six of which are included in this twelve-track collection), none of them made it to the Top 20. "Ju Ju Hand" got to #26 and "Ring Dang Doo" to #33 in 1965, while in 1966 "Red Hot" came in at #82 and "The Hair on My Chinny Chin Chin" made it all the way to #22. In 1967, "Black Sheep" (the missing one) went to #68, "How Do You Catch a Girl" topped out at #27, and "Oh That's Good, No That's Bad" went to #54. I am surprised that when you have such a limited number of songs that can be labeled hits that one would be missing, but there is no reason to believe it is any great loss. The only songs that reek of desperation is "Pharaoh A Go-Go," which is a blatant effort to sound as much like "Wooly Bully" as musically possible, the same way "The Hair on My Chinny Chin Chin" echoes "Li'l Red Riding Hood." Still, for a two-hit wonder, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs certainly stake out their territory and stick to it and if you remember that we are talking the mid-1960s and think of them more as competition for the likes of the Dave Clark Five and the Troggs instead of the Beatles and the Beach Boys you can have a better appreciation of their music.

Sam the Sham was really Domingo Samudio, who got the name because because of doubts about his abilities to be a lead singer in a rock group.

5.0 out of 5 stars More like Sam the Sham & the awsome October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was looking for a Sam the Sham and the Pharaos CD high and low about a year before this CD came out. I finally found one and listened to it all the time. There were about thirty songs and after a while I would just skip through the CD to the good ones. This 20th Century Masters CD has all the good songs without any of the songs that are just okay. Plus it's allot less money.

Format:Audio CD
20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs features some of the best work this group did when they recorded together, although the first two songs are probably the best on this CD. True to form, 20th Century Masters cranked out yet another budget CD with too few tracks on it and thus I am deducting a star to make this a four star review. However, the quality of the sound on this CD is quite good and the artwork is well done even if it is somewhat standard for this CD series.

The album starts off with the tune that was probably their biggest hit entitled "Wooly Bully." This tune, was is actually about Sam's cat; works well on a number of levels and it's still great for dancing even all these years later. The beat is quite catchy and memorable at once; and they never let go of a superfluous note. Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs do this one up right! "Lil' Red Riding Hood" has that 1960s rock and roll flavor to it that always makes me smile; "Lil' Red Riding Hood" has Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs in their natural element and that's more than quite all right by me!

"Ju Ju Hand" rocks well and these guys bat this tune straight out of the ballpark! "Ju Ju Hand" uses the drums very well and it all holds its own very well. The music is strong but it leaves the vocalists squarely front and center--I love it! "Red Hot" has a fast tempo that cranks up the electricity and this number is also quite strong even though it wasn't exactly their biggest hit. I really like "Red Hot;" and listen also for "Ring Dang Doo." "Ring Dang Doo" just plain sounds good and I could never tire of hearing these artists doing "Ring Dang Doo.

I grew up with this music. I love it. My very favorites on this album are: Wooly Bully & Little Red Riding Hood. They made some great songs. I listened to this when I was young & I am glad to add it to my collection. I am so glad it's on cd because I know longer have the album.

Just what I wanted! I looked, and I found, and that was good. And Amazon demands I be a writer to write this review? They should pay me!

This CD was much better than I expected; no complaints whatsoever.
I didn't know anything about them before I bought the CD except for the one song that I wanted.
