The Beatles‘ “Eleanor Rigby” peaks at #11 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart. It was the first Beatles’ release that none of the group played instruments on, although John and George did contribute harmony vocals. A string section of studio musicians, composed of four violins, two cellos and two violas, performed a score composed by producer George Martin. Paul wrote most of the song, but it was Ringo who came up with “Writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear.”

Jimi Hendrix moved from the United States to the UK, where he would spend the next nine months touring and recording before returning home to play the Monterey International Pop Festival in California. One of the first things he does after arriving in England is to legally change his name from James to Jimi.

In England, Jimi Hendrix, The Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humberdink appeared at The Odeon.

The Association had their first number one single with “Cherish”. The song had been released in August and within two months would be a million seller, remaining at the top of the US Pop charts for nearly a month. Oddly, it did not do well overseas, perhaps because of poor distribution. Only when the song was re-recorded by David Cassidy in 1971, did “Cherish” become an international hit.

The Temptations took over the R&B chart with “Beauty Is Only Skin Deep”.

Roger Williams topped the Easy Listening chart for the sixth week with “Born Free”.

The Association reached #1 for the first time with the song “Cherish”.  The Supremes fell back with “You Can’t Hurry Love”, Donovan had song #3 with “Sunshine Superman” and the Beatles were submersing with “Yellow Submarine”.  The rest of the Top 10:  The Hollies and “Bus Stop”, the Temptations entered the Top 10 with “Beauty Is Only Skin Deep”, Los Bravos made an 18-7 move with “Black Is Black”, ? & the Mysterians were up from 25 to 8 with “96 Tears”, the Beach Boys with “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and the Four Tops were up from 26-10 with “Reach Out (I’ll Be There)”.
1966:  Revolver by the Beatles was the #1 album for the third straight week.  Going Places by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass crept back in the Top 10 after 49 weeks of release.
