After the late '60s collapse of Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs, the band's front man and lead singer Domingo "Sam" Samudio signed a solo deal with Atlantic and recorded this 1971 album, which boasts contributions from producers Tom Dowd and Jerry Wexler and sidemen the Dixie Flyers, the Memphis Horns, the Sweet Inspirations, and Duane Allman (also featured on the bonus track "Me and Bobby McGee")!

Sam's born-to-be-wild pose on the front cover tips you off to the sound; this album updated the Pharaohs' frat-boy garage raunch with a nod towards hard rock. The album also won a Grammy for Sam's hilarious, stream-of-consciousness liner notes, which we've reproduced here along with new notes.
