Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London unveiled statues of the Beatles, the museum’s first rock stars. The figures became more famous in 1967 when the Beatles used them in the cover photograph for their “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album.

While the Beatles were changing music forever, Louis Armstrong held on to his style with “Hello, Dolly!” and paved the way on the Easy Listening chart.

Jan And Dean‘s double sided hit, “Dead Man’s Curve” / “New Girl in School” enters the US chart where it will rise to #8.

The Beatles scored one of the highest debuts in the Rock Era to that point as “Can’t Buy Me Love” came in at #27.

“She Loves You” from the Beatles was #1 for the second week, giving the band nine straight weeks at the top.  The group also were at #2 with their former #1 song of seven weeks–“I Want To Hold Your Hand”.  The Beatles were also #3 with their new song “Twist And Shout” and #4 with “Please Please Me”.  The Four Seasons fell with “Dawn (Go Away)” and the Beach Boys slipped with “Fun, Fun, Fun”.  The rest of the Top 10:  “Suspicion” from Terry Stafford, Louis Armstrong climbed up with “Hello, Dolly!”, Bobby Vinton moved into the Top 10 with My Heart Belongs To Only You” and the Dave Clark Five joined the invasion with “Glad All Over”.

Meet the Beatles!  was #1 on the Album chart for the seventh week and Introducing…The Beatles was #2.

Radio Caroline, the UK’s first all-day English-language “pirate” radio station, began broadcasting from the Fredericia, a former Danish ferry, in the North Sea.


Non-Movie B side “It Hurts Me” hit #29 in the U.S, while “Kissing Cousins” the A-side would reached number 12 in the U.S. singles charts. Elvis re-recorded the song for his 1968 TV special.

Van Morrison records “Brown Eyed Girl”, which will enter the Billboard chart next August and rise to #10. The song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007.

Working on sessions for the new Beatles album Sgt. Pepper at Abbey Road studios in London, John Lennon recorded his lead vocal for ‘Good Morning Good Morning’, and Paul McCartney added a lead guitar solo to the track. Lennon had decided he wanted to end the song with animal sound effects, and asked that they be sequenced in such a way that each successive animal was capable of scaring or eating the preceding one.


March 28, 1968

Pink Floyd recorded a performance for the BBC 2 TV Omnibus – The Sound of Change show from Barnes Common, London, England.

March 28, 1970

Simon and Garfunkel were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, the duo’s only UK No.1.  in the USA, it was the #1 Adult song for the fifth week with “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. Only Art Garfunkel sang on the track at Paul Simon’s insistence and eventual regret.

A Detroit band called Frijid Pink sees their cover version of The Animals’ 1964 hit “House Of The Rising Sun” peak at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 during an eleven week run in the Top 40. The Michigan group’s rendition actually sold over seven and half million records worldwide, while the British rocker’s #1 hit sold about 750,000.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released the single “Woodstock.”

Simon and Garfunkel were still on top after five weeks overall with “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.  The Beatles made their move (6-2) with “Let It Be” while John Lennon edged up with “Instant Karma”.  The Jaggerz had their one and only, “The Rapper” while Edison Lighthouse were up to #5 with “Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)”.  The rest of the Top 10:  The Jackson 5 were up from 14-6 with “ABC”, the Hollies remained in the #7 spot with the timeless “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, Norman Greenbaum moved in with “Spirit In The Sky”, Chairmen of the Board slipped to #9 with “Give Me Just A Little More Time” and Badfinger was a determined group with a 23-10 move for “Come And Get It”.

Simon and Garfunkel remained in the #1 position on the Album chart with the landmark Bridge Over Troubled Water.  Hey Jude from the Beatles took second with Led Zeppelin II falling.  The Doors were fourth with Morrison Hotel/Hard Rock Cafe while Santana was up to #5 with their self-titled release.  The rest of an superb Top 10:  Chicago IIAbbey Road by the Beatles, CCR were at #8 with Willy and the PoorboysTom Jones Live in Las Vegas captured #9 and Hello, I’m Johnny Cash by Johnny Cash was tenth.

March 28, 1971

CBC cancelled The Ed Sullivan Show. With musical guests Gladys Knight And The Pips slated to perform, Ed Sullivan took to the stage for the last time as the host of America’s most popular variety show. The program’s twenty-three year run on CBS would come to an end a few days later when producer Bob Precht got a call from CBS president Bob Wood, advising him that the show would not be back for another season. Sullivan did not take the news well, reportedly saying, “Well I’ll be a son of a bitch… after all I’ve done for the network over the years.” More than any other venue, Sullivan’s show provided a springboard to stardom for many Rock ‘n’ Roll acts of the day, introducing Elvis Presley, The Beatles and many, many more to America. Comedian Alan King may have summed it up best when he earlier quipped, “Ed does nothing. But he does it better than anyone else on television.”

“The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” on CBS-TV welcomed guests Bobby Goldsboro, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Paul Lynde.

Still in the RCA studio Elvis was persuaded to try a rock-song like “Burning Love” – his last great rock n roll single, blocked by Chuck Berry’s my ding-ling for #1.
Originally recorded by country soul artist Arthur Alexander, who included it on his 1972 self-titled album, Elvis’ Burning Love  rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, being kept from #1 by Chuck Berry‘s novelty song “My Ding-a-Ling.” However, it reached #1 on Cashbox’s Top 40 Charts for the week of November 11, which gave him 20 US #1 hits.

 Bluesman Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup died today after a massive heart attack.  Crudup had six chart hits in the ’40s and performed with the likes of Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James, and Lightnin’ Hopkins. He was so discontented and broke from his music-business experiences that he quit in the ’50s to farm sweet potatoes in Mississippi. He was sixty-eight. He wrote ‘That’s All Right (Mama)’ and ‘My Baby Left Me’ that Elvis recorded at SUN.
Queen appeared at Aberystwyth University in Wales.
Barbra Streisand attended the midnight show and met backstage with Elvis afterward. She offered him the costarring role in her upcoming remake of “A Star Is Born”. It is unclear whether Col Parker quashed it, or Elvis did owing to the second billing or the character suicide –  the role went to Kris Kristofferson.

‘See See Rider’ and a short ‘I Got A Woman/Amen’ warms up the crowd. You can tell this is going to be a good show with Elvis joking to the audience, “You’re going nuts and you’re just cracked up out there. Is something showing that shouldn’t be? !”

Elvis introduces himself as, “Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I’m Ann-Margret” before an astoundingly funny conversation with a member of the audience including the comments:

Female fan, “Don’t keep me waiting I love you, I love you.”
Elvis, “Honey there’s 2 thousand people listening to you, you know that don’t you?”
F.F, “I don’t care”
Elvis, “Ok! I’ve got a fever blister you know, so if you catch it … Don’t say I didn’t warn you”
F.F, “You can have anything I’ve got, so I will take anything that you’ve got!”
Elvis sounding a little flustered, “Whooo! Can you kill those lights for a minute?”.

It is a classic Elvis concert moment.!
