Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs- "On Tour" and "Their Second Album"
"On Tour" is the more solid of these two albums, and no, it's not a live album. Though many of the songs have some sort of "on the road" theme, it seems to me like more of an attempt to break away from the campy, spooky witch doctor type crap that bogged down "Their Second Album" in both song material AND image.
Ring Dang DO!
...but this album isn't bad. The second side is unfortunately a series of uninspired covers (reeks of record label pressure). Just check out the last six tracks to see what I mean. But this record does have 'Ju Ju Hand' and 'Medicine Man.' No going wrong there.
What's a little hard drive space to find out for yourself?
also check out the post for the album and single of "Li'l Red Riding Hood," just a few posts down...
