Etta James charted with “The Wallflower” (sometimes called “Roll With M Henry”), reaching #1 R&B for four weeks. The song was an answer record to Hank Ballard’s “Work With Me, Annie,” while Georgia Gibbs copied James’s version for a pop version called “Dance With Me, Henry.” James would go on to have thirty R&B hits with her last one being a cover of Big Brother and the Holding Company’s (a.k.a. Janis Joplin and band) “Piece of My Heart.”

Elvis was acting ‘funny’ at this show. During the spoken intro of Polk Salad Annie, Elvis falls down on the stage. During a very long Love Me Tender, many in the audience began clapping in unison as this interlude went on for twenty minutes! When Elvis ignored then, they started ‘booing!’

On one recording (unknown at this point) a lady can be heard saying “I think he’s drunk.” Later, when Elvis joked that he’d replace the Sweet Inspirations with The Supremes, the same woman can be heard saying “I wish there was someone else here tonight.” Others in the audience thought he was stoned.

By now it was clear to everyone that the 4 men who jumped on stage the day before were nothing more than over stimulated fans, Elvis became convinced that they had been sent by Priscilla’s boyfriend, Mike Stone. Elvis raged to all the guys and made accusations that it was Stone who broke up his marriage and that he was now trying to take his daughter away from him as well. In his anger Elvis even thought of killing Stone, but when he finally calmed down several days later, the idea abandoned. Romances: Priscilla

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band scored a No.1 single in the US with their version of the Bruce Springsteen song ‘Blinded By The Light.’ The track was the first single from Bruce Springsteen’s 1973 debut album Greetings from Asbury Park N.J. The Earth Band’s version features several changed lyrics. The most prominent change is in the chorus, where Springsteen’s “cut loose like a deuce” is replaced with “revved up like a deuce.” Springsteen himself has said that it was not until Manfred Mann rewrote the song to be about a “feminine hygiene product” that it became popular.

Mariah Carey had her first UK No.1 with her version of the Peter Ham Tom Evans song ‘Without You’. Nilsson also took the song to No.1 in 1972. (Carey’s version was released on January 24, 1994, just over a week after Nilsson had died following a heart attack).
