It Happened at the World’s Fair  Production: September 4-13 in Seattle

Rain canceled filming on Monday September 10, and Presley and company lay low.

Visiting the fair as a tourist was the 315-pound New Orleans trumpeter Al Hirt,who was asked his opinions about modern music. He wishfully believed — like all jazzers seemingly did back then — that there was “a strong surge toward the return of the big bands” … ‘Better music is coming back all the time. Even Elvis Presley is changing his material'” (The Seattle Times, September 11, 1962).

September 10, 1963

The Daily Mirror published a two-page article about The Beatles. Written by Donald Zec, the feature is entitled ‘Four Frenzied Little Lord Fauntleroys Who Are Earning 5,000 Pounds A Week’ Zec, who had attended a Beatles concert in Luton on Sept. 6 and then invited them to his home to complete the interview, referred to The Beatles’ haircuts as ‘A stone-age hair style’. The article provided a major boost to their career.

Andrew Loog Oldham, manager of the Rolling Stones, invited Paul McCartney and John Lennon to the Studio 51 Jazz Club in London where the Stones were rehearsing.  The two Beatles were working on the song “I Wanna’ Be Your Man”, and finished it at the rehearsal when they found out the Rolling Stones needed another song.  The  Stones recorded it for their album.

The Monkees‘ “The Last Train To Clarksville” is released in the US. By the first week of November, it will be the top tune in the nation. The lyrics describe a phone call by a military man to his girl, asking that she ‘take the last train to Clarksville’ so they can have one last night together before he has to leave on the morning train. The record topped out at #23 in the UK.

The Beatles started a six-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Revolver the group’s ninth US chart topper. The title ‘Revolver’, like Rubber Soul before it, is a pun, referring both to a kind of handgun as well as the “revolving” motion of the record as it is played on a turntable.

The Supremes scored their seventh #1 song out of 17 released with “You Can’t Hurry Love”.  Donovan barely had time to get comfortable at the position with “Sunshine Superman”, which fell to #2.  The Beatles had hit #45 in their first three years with “Yellow Submarine”.  The Happenings fell with “See You In September” while the former #1 “Summer In The City” from Lovin’ Spoonful was song #5.  The rest of the Top 10:  Wilson Pickett & “Land of 1,000 Dances”, “Sunny” from Bobby Hebb, Lee Dorsey remained at 8 with “Working In The Coal Mine”, the Hollies popped from 18 to 9 with “Bus Stop” and “Guantanamera” by the Sandpipers moved into the Top 10.

September 10, 1967

Elvis had some brief time between films and wanted to record some new songs and material for new singles as well as bonus songs to fill out the Clamback soundtrack album. One of the songs Elvis really wanted to do was Guitar Man. They fooled around with the song, but couldn’t replicate Reed’s guitar. So Reed was tracked down and asked to play along. Elvis in R.C.A studio in Nashville, shown with fans:

The result of this session was stunning, not only the intended song, but Big Boss Man as well. Unfortunately there was a big fight about the rights of publishing, the Col demanding, Elvis silent and so Reed, song writer and guitarist, stormed out. The session went on till 5.30 a.m. but the atmosphere was ruined.
