The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

July 30, 1960

The first true stereo Elvis Presley album ‘Elvis is Back’ was at No.1 on the UK chart.

Elvis Is Back! topped the UK Albums Chart and reached number two in Billboard’s Top LP’s. Initially, the release received mixed reviews, but over subsequent years its critical reception became progressively more positive. The album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1999.

It was outsold by the GI Blues Soundtrack that Elvis did not want released, musically continued a more jazz and blues King Creole – and was Elvis’ first album to be released in true stereo.

The Beatles started a five week run at No.1 on the US album chart with ‘Yesterday…And Today’, the group’s 8th No.1 album. Issued only in the United States and Canada, the album is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original cover image, the “butcher cover” featuring the band dressed in white smocks and covered with decapitated baby dolls and pieces of meat.

“Somewhere My Love” by Ray Coniff was the new #1 song on the Easy Listening chart.

“Wild Thing” by the Troggs was the new #1 song as “Hanky Panky” byTommy James & the Shondells dropped after three weeks at the top.  “Lil’ Red Riding Hood” by Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs was #3, “The Piped Piper” by Crispian St. Peters remained at 4 and the Mamas and the Papas rose to #5 with “I Saw Her Again”.  The rest of the Top 10:  Paul Revere & the Raidersfrom Boise, Idaho with “Hungry”, the Lovin’ Spoonful jumped up from 21-7 with “Summer In The City”, Tommy Roe moved up with “Sweet Pea”, the Rolling Stones entered the Top 10 with “Mother’s Little Helper” and Ray Coniff & the Singers had song #10–“Somewhere, My Love”.

Jerry Samuels, a recording engineer at Associated Recording Studios in New York who billed himself as Napoleon XIV, had the best selling single in America with a novelty tune called “They’re Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” Several radio stations, including WABC and WMCA in New York, would ban the song because it seemed to ridicule the insane.

The Beatles worked on overdubs for “Come Together”, “Polythene Pam/She Came In Through the Bathroom Window”, “You Never Give Me Your Money” and “Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight” and began work on the Side Two medley.  Originally, Paul McCartney told the tape operator (John Kurlander) to get rid of “Her Majesty”, but Kurlander put it at the end of the tape, nearly 20 seconds after “The End”.  McCartney liked this approach and told Kurlander to keep the song, including the 20-second pause.

The track that Lennon was referring to was ‘Ticket For Ride’, a number which sounds incredibly tame in comparison to what is expected from metal music today. However, the genre didn’t even exist in 1965 and there is a slight glimmer of truth to the Beatle’s claim. There are elements of the track, as it begins to wind down, which sees the song flipped from pop ditty into chaotic madness. It may seem like nothing now but this was unprecedented 55 years ago.

“It’s a heavy record, and the drums are heavy too. That’s why I like it,” Lennon suggested in 1970, which he would echo once more a decade later to Playboy’s David Sheff in 1980: “That was one of the earliest heavy-metal records made. Paul’s contribution was the way Ringo played the drums.”


The Beatles song John Lennon called a heavy metal record
The Beatles song John Lennon claims to be “the first heavy metal record ever made” is 1965’s ‘Ticket For Ride’ which he said inspired the genre.
