Wooly Bully

April 3, 1965: Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs’ Wooly Bully is released!

day 361

There are a lot of cute stories about Wooly Bully on its wikipedia page.  One in particular, that the Pharaohs wanted to write a tribute to the Hully Gully dance, but the record department’s legal department was concerned because there was another similarly titled song (hey, didn’t they know you can’t copyright a title?) so anyway, they wrote Wooly Bully instead!

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.  That is a great name for a band.

Running out.  I’m at the Groove with the Stingers tonight and I gotta load the car!  more tomorrow…
