LINER NOTES-Courtesy Song Facts
When I was a young man half the fun in getting a LP or Album was to read all the cool stuff the publisher had to say about the band or the personnel on the various "cuts" some time there would be a really neat poster of the band. I try to duplicate that with my "Liner Notes”
Also known as "Lil' Red Riding Hood," is an updated version of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale, with the lead singer portraying the wolf. In this context, the singer is preying on the girl through lies and deception in an attempt to win her favor and take advantage of her. It's a scene played out in many social situations, as an aggressive guy might play lots of tricks to seduce an unsuspecting girl.• Written by Ronald Blackwell and produced by Stan Kesler, this was the second big semi-novelty hit for the Texas band Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs. Their debut hit "Wooly Bully" also made it to #2.• Sam, whose real name is Domingo Samudio, developed his act in the Dallas area where he played lots of local dances. With the Pharaohs, he became a comedy act, touring in a hearse and wearing turbans and Egyptian garb on stage. Some of their other songs were "The Hair On My Chinny Chin Chin," "I Couldn't Spell †&%$@?!" and "Pharoah A-Go Go."• The group's female backup singers were known as The Sham-Ettes, and when "Little Red Riding Hood" took off, the group's record label, MGM, had the Sham-Ettes release an answer song called "Hey There Big Bad Wolf."• The Big Bopper released a different song called "Little Red Riding Hood" in 1958.• In 2011 the actress Amanda Seyfried recorded a new version of this song. Seyfried starred in the movie Little Red Riding Hood, which was a Twilight-style update on the fairy tale. Her version was produced by Matt Sorum, formerly of Guns 'N' Roses.
