The Beatles released the album “Yesterday and Today” with the controversial “butcher” cover, showing the Beatles smiling amongst decapitated baby dolls. The original photo became a huge publicity issue for Capitol Records. It was quickly replaced by a more conventional cover, glued over the old one and resulting in one of the band’s most prized collectibles.  At the time, the Beatles defended the use of the butcher photograph. John Lennon said it was “as relevant as Vietnam” and Paul McCartney said that their critics were “soft.” Ringo Starr called it a commentary on how Capitol “butchered” their original albums. George Harrison said he thought the whole idea “was gross, and I also thought it was stupid. Sometimes we all did stupid things thinking it was cool and hip when it was naïve and dumb; and that was one of them.” “Yesterday and Today” was the only Beatles record to lose money for Capitol.

At RCA Studio B in Nashville, overdubs completed the Elvis Presley track “If Every Day Was Like Christmas.” The instrumental backing had been recorded on June 10 and Elvis’ vocal was added on June 12.

1994

Beatles fans learn that the three surviving members of the group are working on a “new” song for their upcoming Anthology multimedia juggernaut, a song which turns out to be the “Threetles” overdubbing themselves onto a ’70s John home demo called “Free As A Bird.”

2004

June 20th marked the 3000th time that Paul McCartney took to the stage as a professional musician. He had performed 2,535 concerts with The Quarrymen and The Beatles, 140 gigs with Wings and 325 solo shows.

It was the first time they had performed as a group since 1984’s Victory tour – when Micheal was alive.

2014

Songs by Elvis Presley, ABBA and the Spice Girls were among those being used in research that hoped to unlock the secret of how our memory works. Researchers from the University of Amsterdam had created an online game in an attempt to shed light on why some tunes get stuck in your head. Fans were asked to identify song clips and compare them by their catchiness.

50s Magazine: Elvis Presley Speaks

 

 

Gridiron Restaurant, Memphis,TN, Tuesday June 19, 1956: Elvis with 20-year-old Memphis telephone company operator Robbie Moore (left) and his girlfriend Barbara Hearn (right). Elvis kidded around by eating Robbie’s sandwich and laying his head on her shoulder.

Photographer Robert Williams took several pictures which later appeared in the magazine “ELVIS PRESLEY SPEAKS!”.

 

Miss Moore sued Elvis on grounds of “invasion of privacy“ and collected $5,500 from him in an out of court settlement, in which she had to request being considered as an adult, being under the age of 21.

She also said that Elvis ate her lunch and left her with the bill of $1.25.

When Miss Moore complained in the press, she became the target of fan harassment, at her home and work.

 

 

for perspective

1956  $5,500 dollars in 2017 dollars is $49,486.45

Memphis Police provide crowd control on the midway, as Elvis throws a ball to win Hearn a prize.

Elvis attending on Black Community day, with these photos in a nationally published fan magazine, were socially revolutionary. In the 1960s and 1970s, he’d rent the park when he had carnival urges to ride the rides.

Pat Boone had his sixth and final number 1 hit in the US with “Moody River”. A year later, “Speedy Gonzales” would finish his run of thirty-eight Top 10 hits. A tongue-in-cheek, heavy metal “comeback” was attempted in 1997 with an album called “In a Metal Mood (No More Mr. Nice Guy)”.

The following short article in Billboard on June 19, 1961, a month after “Surrender” exited the “Hot 100,” indicates that RCA may have overestimated the record’s sales potential.

• Copies of “Surrender” given away in Canada

“Station CKWX [in Vancouver, B.C.] gave away 3,000 recordings of ‘Surrender’ by Elvis Presley this month in a contest which pulled in more than 10,000 letters. According to CKWX deejay Red Robinson, RCA Victor had ‘over-pressed’ the Presley disk, so they turned the excess wax over to the jock and suggested he build a promotion around it. Robinson offered the disk free to the first 3,000 dialers who wrote in and merely said they like Elvis.”

Amy Winehouse was booed by crowds in Serbia’s capital Belgrade after appearing to be too drunk to perform. The concert – the first on the singers 12-day European tour, saw Winehouse mumble her way through parts of songs, leave the stage altogether and at one point she threw her microphone to the floor. She was frequently booed by the crowd, who had paid up to £45 to see her in a country in which wages are some of the lowest in Europe.

Presley Fans Keep Studio From Chopping Sideburns By ALINE MOSBY United Press Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UP) —

Elvis Presley was All Shook Up with gratitude today. Durned if fans didn’t keep MGM Studio from chopping off his famous sideburns and bangs. MGM figured on giving Elvis a crewcut and shaving off those side whiskers because he plays a convict in “Jailhouse Rock”, the third movie on the agenda of the Presley . steamroller through Hollywood. But this caused the biggest crisis in the movie business since Lassie was exposed as a she: Four thousand post cards and letters from Presley fans poured into MGM, begging that the studio let their hero act with his original hair hanging around his sensual- looking face. His Trademark A Fortville, Ind., mother wrote “We love him at our house. Elvis has had more criticism than anyone but his loyal fans stand by.”

Presley’s return

For the First Time in the three years since The Beatles rocketed to fame and fortune, the English hit parade has been topped by that figure out of the past, Elvis Presley. His “Crying in the Chapel” displaced Briton Sandie Shaw’s “long Live Love”, according to a recent weekly report, at the top of the pile.

The best The Beatles could do was take 24th place, with “Ticket to Ride”. The Beatles recent appearance on the queen’s birthday honors list, creating them members of the Order of the British Empire, cannot be expected to do much for their dwindled popularity. One teen-age girl, for example, said of The Beatles favor at the royal hand, “They’ve become respectable, and I don’t want anything to more to do with them.”

All along, of course, we knew that even The Beatles would have their day and be replaced. But we did not expect to see so ancient a figure as Elvis Presley rise to occupy the Beatles’ vacated throne – and in the Beatles home country! Isn’t anything certain any more, even the fickleness of addicts to popular records?
