The Everly Brothers made their first studio recordings, cutting four tracks in 22 minutes at Nashville’s Old Tulane Hotel Studios. Family friend Chet Atkins engineered a chance for The Everly Brothers to record for Columbia Records in early 1956. However, their first and only single for the label, ‘Keep A’ Lovin’ Me’, was a flop, and they were quickly dropped from Columbia.

Elvis was staying at the New Frontier in Las Vegas. The following days were filled with the attendances of almost every show in town and dating a dancer named Dottie Harmony.

Brian Epstein went to Liverpool’s Cavern Club to see The Beatles perform for the first time. He had been getting requests at his NEMS music store for a record called “My Bonnie”. After several more visits, Epstein would offer to manage the group, which he did until his death in 1967.

Elvis Presley had his 9th UK #1 lasting 4 weeks with single with “His Latest Flame / Little Sister”.

In the US. His Latest Flame reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 2 on the Easy Listening chart, based (at the time) on the Top 100. However, the single’s Hot 100 chart run was atypical of a Top Ten hit. In the autumn of 1961 it shot from 22 to 4, then dropped to 10, then 26, all within the space of four weeks.

Little Sister made #5 in the US and # in the UK.

A US Army captain is quoted in Rolling Stone magazine as saying “Rock and Roll music contributes to both the usage of drugs and the high VD rate among enlisted men in the army today.”

Eivets Rednow peaked at #66 pop with the title song from the film Alfie. After sixteen pop hits in a row it seems that Eivets wanted to test his audience’s loyalty to his sound, if not to his name. Eivets Rednow is Stevie Wonder spelled backwards.

 Simon And Garfunkel record what would become their signature tune, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, with future member of Bread, Larry Knechtel on piano. Art wanted Paul to sing the song, but Paul insisted that Art’s voice was better suited for it. It was a decision that Paul would later say he regretted. The song won five awards at the 13th Annual Grammy Awards in 1971, including Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
In the 1970s, Elvis would do this song in concert.

After years of struggling as a member of two New York area bands, The Hassels and Attila, and as a bar room piano player, Billy Joel releases what will ultimately be his breakthrough album, “Piano Man”. The title song will be released as a single and become a Top Twenty-five hit early next year.
Elvis flew to Los Angeles and then on to Palm Springs. Linda Thompson didn’t go with him. She spent the next week in Puerto Rico with Vernon’s wife, Dee.

Randy Bachman, the former lead guitarist for The Guess Who, enjoyed a number one song with his new band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Randy stuttered through the lyrics of “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” on a demo recording as a private joke about his brother Gary, who had a speech impediment. The record company liked that take better than the non-stammering version and released it. The song not only gave the band their third US top thirty hit and a #2 in the UK, Gary Bachman stopped stuttering. 
Elvis’ early songs all accentuated his stuttering.

The Wake and Aftermath

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

The Recording Industry Association of America announces their Artists Of The Century. The Beatles top the list for US sales of over 106 million albums. Garth Brooks was named most successful male artist (89 million albums sold) and Barbra Streisand the most successful female artist. (62 million albums sold). Elvis Presley had the most Gold and Platinum singles with 77, to go along with his 80 Gold and Platinum albums. Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind” (Princess Diana version) is the best selling single of all time and the Eagles “Greatest Hits 1971 – 1975” is the record holder for best selling album.
Elvis Presley was never an album artist, he worked through singles – and his EP 4 song discs are not counted, nor is 1956 and 1957 his biggest years of sales. So these lists are skewed to favor the modern performer in a much larger market that is changing from physical to digital sales. Elvis Presley would be first to all new formats as a test, and then not given credit for sales.
The Beatles launched their official internet web site, www.thebeatles.com
