‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra became the first recording to be awarded a Gold record. It was actually just a master copy of the disc sprayed with gold lacquer by RCA as a publicity stunt. The actual award recognized today as a Gold Record would not be initiated for another sixteen years when the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) borrowed the idea and trademarked the Gold Record. The first Gold single was awarded to Perry Como in 1958 for ‘Catch A Falling Star’ and the first Gold album was given to Gordon McRae for the soundtrack to ‘Oklahoma’.

Frank Sinatra’s “Come Fly With Me” rose to the top of the Billboard album chart, where it would stay for the next five weeks. At the inaugural Grammy Awards in 1959 the LP was nominated for Album Of The Year, but lost to Henry Mancini‘s “The Music from Peter Gunn”.

Elvis attains his ninth US number one single with the double-sided hit “Don’t” / “I Beg of You”.

“Don’t” was Presley’s eleventh number-one hit in the United States. “Don’t” also peaked at number four on the R&B charts. Billboard ranked it as the No. 3 song for 1958

The Beatles recorded the orchestral build-up for the middle and end of ‘A Day in the Life’. At the Beatles’ request, the orchestra members arrived in full evening dress along with novelty items. One violinist wore a red clown’s nose, while another, a fake gorilla’s paw on his bow hand. Others were wearing funny hats and other assorted novelties. The recording was filmed for a possible ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ television special which was ultimately abandoned. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mike Nesmith from The Monkees and Donovan also attended the session.
Busy as Elvis was on his new property, Circle G, he bought over the next couple of weeks more than 2 dozen pickups and other vehicles for use on the ranch.
