The above receipt, dated June 9, 1954, was for a two-sided acetate recording made by Elvis Presley. Sun records studio was originally called Memphis Recording Service opening in January 16 1950

Elvis cut two sides (master 0914-A and 0914-B) on Saturday, 6/5, and picked up his acetate dub on Wednesday, 6/9. This documentation is likely for a song like, perhaps, Casual Love Affair.

Elvis Presley made entertainment history by performing 4 sold-out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden. George Harrison, John Lennon, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Art Garfunkel were among music stars that attended the shows. The shows were recorded and became the album ‘Elvis as recorded at Madison Square Garden’ and eventually “An Afternoon in the Garden” and “Prince from Another Planet”.

Elvis gave a press conference at 4.00 p.m. at the Hilton. Asked about his image as a shy, humble country boy, Elvis responded: ” I don’t know what makes them say that”, and stood up to reveal the International Hotel gold belt under his jacket, with his father proudly beaming beside him.

At the MSG Press Conference, Elvis was asked a number of questions, as funny as the Gold Belt he won as an Attendance recorder setter in Vegas; his resistance to offering a political commentary and his supporting other celebs making different decisions was more riveting

The album cover was designed by Peter Corriston and featured The Rolling Stones in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. The cover immediately ran into trouble when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli (representing her mother Judy Garland), Raquel Welch, and the estate of Marilyn Monroe threatened legal action.

1979

The Bee Gees reached number one in the US for the ninth time with their sixth straight chart topper, “Love You Inside Out”, a #13 hit in the UK.

The Ronettes finally got their day in court as a judge in the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York heard arguments in their lawsuit against Phil Spector. The Ronettes, whose hits included “Be My Baby” and “Walking In The Rain”, charged that the producer breached the group’s 34-year-old contract by paying the members no royalties since 1963. The suit asked for $12 million in damages, rescission of the contract, the return of the masters and recoupment of all monies received by the defendants from the sale of Ronettes masters. Although The Ronettes would win this case, a five-judge panel of the New York State Court of Appeals would overturn the decision in October, 2002, saying that the contract the Ronettes signed with Spector in 1963 was still binding.

Elvis, anxiety, and exorcism: Ex-preacher still looking for apology after being cut out of church

Despite his success singing as “The King,” Bravener said the Elvis act also helped sour his relationship with church leaders in the early 2000s. He said he was then told by the church leadership that he was suffering ‘demonic oppression’. Desperate for relief from his anxiety, Bravener said he agreed to be the subject of an exorcism. He said the attempted demonic expulsion took place at church member Joe Crummey’s home. “‘We renounce! We command you!'” Bravener said members yelled at him. “I didn’t levitate and I didn’t throw up,” he added, “but I felt like I was going to throw up and I was scared to death, I was shaking.”

CBC News requested an interview with Christ Central Church. Mark Rushworth, the current lead pastor, declined the request and said the church didn’t want to discuss the matter publicly. “It’s been addressed before,” Rushworth said over the phone, though Bravener and his son both dispute the claim.

1958

Buddy Holly receives his draft notice, but he would later be refused induction because of his poor eyesight and a stomach ulcer.

Variety’s review of May 28, 1958, gave Presley measured praise for his acting work.

“Hal Wallis has attempted to take the curse off Elvis Presley, for those still resistant to his charms, by giving him an extraordinary backing in ‘King Creole,’ a solid melodrama with plenty of action and color. The Paramount presentation shows the young singer this time as a better-than-fair actor … In all fairness, Presley does show himself to be a surprisingly sympathetic and believable actor on occasion.”

The Heaven’s Gate Movie starring Kris Kristopherson, ended the studio.

Frankie and Johnny

May 28, 1966

All four Beatles spent the day with Bob Dylan in his room at the Mayfair hotel in London, England, watching rushes of D.A. Pennebakers’s forthcoming documentary film, Don’t Look Back, which covered Dylan’s 1965 concert tour of the United Kingdom.

Percy Sledge started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’. A No.4 hit on the UK chart and No.2 when re-issued in 1987. Before the recording session, the song had no title or lyrics. The session proceeded with the expectation that Sledge would produce them for the vocal takes. When it came time to record the vocals, Sledge improvised the lyrics with minimal pre-planning, using the melody as a guide for rhythm and phrasing. The performance was so convincing that others working on the session assumed Sledge had the lyrics written down.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass set a record with four albums in the Top Ten at the same time: “What Now My Love,” “South of the Border,” “Going Places,” and “Whipped Cream and Other Delights.”

Elvis Presley’s 25th LP – soundtrack album “Frankie and Johnny” peaked at #20 in the U.S.; and much later was certified Gold and Platinum on January 6, 2004

During the 1970s, Pickwick Records had leased several of Presley’s recordings from RCA and reissued the soundtrack album in 1976 with a new cover showing a 1970s-era image of Presley and the title slightly amended to Frankie & Johnny. The running order of the tracks was altered and three songs from the original album were omitted, and it was the only soundtrack to be reissued in this way. It did not chart on the Billboard 200.

Image result for Elvis frankie and johnny pickwick

This oddity remained in print for several years and when, following Presley’s death in August 1977, RCA reissued all of his albums, the agreement between RCA and Pickwick prohibited RCA from reissuing the original, complete soundtrack album in the US for several years due to the existence of this version. The original Frankie and Johnny soundtrack album was reissued in Canada and elsewhere however. Not until 2010 would the complete original Frankie and Johnny soundtrack be widely available in the United States again.

In 2003 Frankie and Johnny was reissued on the Follow That Dream label in a special edition that contained the original album tracks along with numerous alternate takes

Elvis went into the studio again, but without the Imperials his spirit to record was lacking. Only 2 songs were completed between 7.oo and 10.00 p.m.

Russ Smith, Waterloo Courier, May 30, 1976

AMES – After 20 some years plus one more hour Elvis came Ames Friday evening and 4,500 Iowans were ready. Man, were they ready!

Dollies whose Moms squealed over Elvis in the franlic fifties shreaked when he -bumped his hips. They screeched when he wiped his brow. And, oh, when he sighed…

The Moms still squealed….or cried. He was so beautiful; beautiful in his powder blue suit witli the sequined vest. And a little portly, too.

Having settled a two-year legal battle with his former manager Mike Appel, Bruce Springsteen was free to record a follow-up to his 1975 hit “Born To Run.”

In Paris, France, musicians Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers played together for the first time when they performed as part of a group called Strontium 90.

The Elvis Presley compilation album “Welcome To My World” hit #44 in the U.S.

It contained all previously released material, except for “I Can’t Stop Loving You” from the afternoon Madison Square Garden concert, the full concert remained unreleased until the 1990s when it was issued as An Afternoon in the Garden.. Cheating Heart was the oldest track at 19 years, making it a career overview of sorts.

Welcome to My World was certified gold on September 30, 1977 and platinum on January 14, 1983 by the RIAA

After a shaky start to the show, Elvis stopped the band and jokingly said: ‘Wait a minute, if we can start together fellas, because we’ve got Led Zeppelin out there, lets try to look like we know what we’re doing.’ All four members of Zeppelin met with Elvis after the show, spending over 2 hours backstage. Elvis asked for all the group’s autographs for his daughter Lisa Marie. Just before the meeting broke up, Robert Plant finally summoned up the courage to sing Elvis’ 1956 hit “Love Me.” Elvis joined in for a few bars.
