The song, 'Little Red Riding Hood' was a hit song performed and written by the band Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.

  • The song was released in 1966.
  • It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Charts.

Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs Sam the Sham was the stage name of musician Domingo Zamudio - a Mexican American performer who formed the group "Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs" in 1963.

After playing numerous clubs and performing frequently on the national music circuit, the band signed their first record deal with the Pen Label in Memphis, Tennessee.

Upon signing with the label, the group recorded their first and biggest ever hit, "Wooly Bully" which sold a total of 3 million copies and peaked at number two on the Billboard charts.

The song was released in 1965 and was named the "Number One Record of the Year" despite not topping the charts, although it did remain in the Billboard Hot 100 for a total of 18 weeks.

Little Red Riding Hood Most of the Pharaohs resigned following a financial dispute less than a year after the release of "Wooly Bully", so Zamudio recruited new "Pharaohs" to replace those who had left.

The new incarnation of the band penned the group's second hit single, "Little Red Riding Hood" in 1966. Like "Wooly Bully" the single peaked at number two on the Billboard chart, selling over one million copies.

The band disbanded in 1970, although "Sam the Sham" continued to record as a solo artist.
