rock n roll life and death

Give us this day, May 16, our daily Elvis

1888

At the Franklin Institute, Emile Berliner demonstrated an improved early gramophone using a flat 7-inch disc with lateral-cut grooves on one side only, hand-cranked at 30 RPM with a two-minute capacity. He was the first to mass-produce hard rubber vulcanite copies from a zinc master disk.

1929

The first Academy Awards ceremony was held at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles.

May 15 1943

The Presley family moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where Vernon got a job. They stayed there until June 20, and then they all returned to Tupelo, homesick for family and friends.

1953

“Crazy, Man, Crazy” by Bill Haley & His Comets was their first chart entry and also the first rock ‘n’ roll record to make the Billboard pop music chart.

May 16, 1955

At the Mosque Theater, Richmond, Virginia:  Martha Carson, Slim Whitman, The Davis Sisters, Onie Wheeler, Jimmy Rogers Snow and special added attraction: Elvis with Scotty and Bill

Peter Guralnick and Ernst Jorgensen in Elvis Day by Day wrote “RCA field representative Brad McCuen (responsible for east Tennessee, Virginia, and the Carolinas) and country–and–western promotion manager Chick Crumpacker are in the audience to check out some of their acts. Crumpacker remembers being bowled over. “What really got the listeners was his energy and the way he sang the songs. The effect was galvanic.” Subsequently Crumpacker makes a point of taking all of Elvis’ records back to New York to give to his boss, Steve Sholes, who, unbeknownst to him, is already well aware of the new act.”


Backstage at the Mosque

May 16, 1956

Auditorium Pandemonium
Elvis Cools Cats Down To a Dungaree Delirium
By Jack Blalock and Ray Moseley of the Gazette Staff

It started as a chant of “We want Elvis,” mounted to a wave of hysterical screaming and from then on the cats had a ball.
Elvis Presley, his guitar and his singing caused it all last night – the biggest mob scene the Auditorium has ever witnessed.
Teen-aged rock-and-roll fans started lining up 5 1/2 hours before his appearance and at show time the auditorium was packed, with hundreds more waiting outside.
Presley, flashily dressed and beaming broadly, took it all with ease as he sang for two worshipful mobs.
The 21-year-old singing star was scheduled to appear at 8 p.m. but he missed a plane connection in Memphis and did not come on stage until almost 8:30. The delay merely heightened the pandemonium in the Auditorium.
Thirty minutes before his arrival, the big hall started rocking with waves of rhythmic applause and cries of “We Want Elvis!” The crescendo mounted to a hysterical pitch when the stage lights came on.
The curtain parted and a blue jacketed master of ceremonies bubbled: “Bless your hearts, you’re going to get him.” That touched off another round of screaming.
Then the crowd booed and hissed intermittently as another act performed. Plainly they wanted Elvis.

In Person; In Purple
The master of ceremonies returned, fumbled through an introduction that no one cared to hear and then it happened.
Out of the curtains on the right emerged a broadly smiling Presley, garbed in a violet purple coat and black silk slacks. A guitar was draped over his shoulders as he slinked toward the microphone.
Instantly, the crowd was on its feet, screaming and waving. The front rows surged forward.
Presley continued to beam, wrestled the microphone toward him and suddenly burst into the opening notes of his most popular song “Heartbreak Hotel.”
That was more than the teenagers could take sitting down. On the left side of the auditorium, they rose in a body and stormed down the aisle, then stood screaming on the brink of the stage.
Presley gyrated wildly on stage, drawing louder screams each time he flicked a leg in hula dancer fashion.
Police Herd Them Back
Policemen scrambled down the aisle after the teen-agers and finally persuaded them to return to their seats.
The screaming never subsided during the rendition.
The notes came through only now and then, but it didn’t matter.


REALLY SENDS ‘EM – Elvis Presley “sent” these teen-agers “a-rockin and a-roll-in” while singing and shaking out one of his self-styled “hi want you, hi need you” songs. This front row scene was typical in the packed Robinson Auditorium last night. The ticket demand was so great that Presley presented a second show.

Somebody would have said, ‘Oh go on. Just for a laugh.’”

The Two British Waves

I’ve come to think about Elvis in a very new way – and I don’t think Elvis thought of himself as a rebel – he just wanted to belong, his dreams were middle class aspirations and a million light years from his sharecropper beginings.

His goals were to secure a home for his family, to take care of his parents. To eventually meet a special girl and have a family – he hoped to have children so his own offspring wouldn’t be an only child as he was.

When asked about his music, Elvis knew music didn’t turn teens into delinquents, but that rock n roll was safety value, a safe means to express emotions and to blow off pent up steam, sexual desire…

Elvis’ popularity though was not without controversy. Just days after their final appearance at the Armory a local Juvenile Court judge in Jacksonville, Florida called Elvis a “savage” and threatened to arrest him if he shook his body while performing at Jacksonville’s Florida Theatre, justifying the restrictions by saying his music was undermining the youth of America.

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 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.

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:

Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967

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.

Guitar Man would be Elvis’ last of eleven #1 Country hits, but did not crack the Billboard Top 40.
