The Sun Records Rockabilly Era

October 1, 1954

The UK’s Top 12 Pop Chart, as published by the New Musical Express, became the Top 20 Chart. The list was compiled by the magazine’s representative who simply telephoned approximately twenty record shops, asking for a list of the ten best-selling songs. Because of its success, other retailers such as Record Mirror and Melody Maker, would soon begin compiling their own charts.

Elvis, Scotty and Bill played Eagle’s Nest in Memphis, a nightclub over the changing room at the Clearpool complex.

Elvis said he starts his next picture Oct. 30.

What about the draft board? ‘Haven’t heard from them’.

What about straight acting? ‘I’ll never make it’, said Elvis, with a grin.

Elvis went on to say, however, that he ‘would like a straight acting role. It would depend on the script’.

Britain’s BBC banned Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett‘s single, “Monster Mash”, saying it was offensive and in poor taste. They eventually relented and the song went on to become a seasonal hit, reaching a high of #3 in 1973.

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.

During a chance meeting between The Rolling Stones at Studio 51 Jazz Club in London with Paul McCartney and John Lennon, the two played the Stones a partly finished song ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ which the Stones later record.

The Rolling Stones appear on The Ed Sullivan Show in New York. Guitarist Brian Jones performs despite a cast on his right hand which he broke in a fall in Tangier.

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.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Elvis Presley and Jerry ‘Guitar Man’ Reed

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

September 10, 1968

The Beatles were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Hey Jude’, the group’s 15th UK No.1 and the longest chart topper ever at seven minutes and ten seconds. The single was the first release on the group’s Apple records label.

The New York Dolls spit up. The influential American band formed in 1972 and made just two albums, the 1973 ‘New York Dolls’ and 1974 ‘Too Much Too Soon’.

Elvis performed at the Ed Sullivan Show, CBS Studios, Los Angeles, for the very first time. Since Sullivan himself had had a car accident in August, Elvis was hosted by Charles Laughton in New York City.

There were also well organized letter writing campaigns and petitions against Presley, but it was later brought to light that many of the signatures were fictitious or of deceased people.

That’s not bad for a song that Jerry Lee, along with drummer J.M. Van Eaton and guitarist Roland Janes, had recorded in just one take because Sun Records’ producer Jack Clement didn’t have enough tape left for any other attempts.

Elvis and Anita Wood took a train to Memphis.

There were plans made for recording some instrumental tracks by Scotty, Bill and D.J. at the end of the session. Elvis even suggested he would join them as a piano man. However, at the end of the session, there was not enough time left and Elvis said or did nothing for Scotty, Bill and D.J.

As a result, Scotty and Bill would write a letter of resignation and they expressed their long-held feelings of resentment towards Elvis. D.J. declined to go along with them. This all gave some bitterness on both sides and would be played out in the media.

To get across the fairgrounds to the filming area at Fair’s Electric Utilities Pavilion, Elvishad to ride through crowds of fairgoers in an open electricab vehicle.  Presley also drew worshipful fans when he stepped outside of the Federal Science Pavilion and handed an eternally grateful girl his can of soda pop.

Sue Wouters, age 18, was the daughter of Betty Wouters, secretary to Albert Fisher, who was one of the fair’s film and television VIP handlers. Thus it was that the Wouters went down to the fairgrounds to hang out on the periphery of the movie set where she happened to be spotted in the crowd by Presley who stepped over to say hello. Soon after a bodyguard mentioned to her that the star wished to have her telephone number, and later that evening the bodyguard called to ask her out on Presley’s behalf. She accepted, and a bit later a long black chauffeur-driven limousine rolled up to the Wouters family’s Capitol Hill home (1736 Belmont Avenue). She entered and was squired downtown to the hotel where she avoided the teenage mobs and joined Presley and his posse and a few other guests in his suite for an evening of playing records, drinking Cokes, and watching TV.
