American Graffiti premiered in Los Angeles and became something of a surprise hit. The film, centered on a group of teenagers growing up on the West coast of the US in the 1960s, cost just over $700,000 to make, but has garnered an estimated return of well over $200 million in box office receipts and home video sales. The soundtrack album reached #10 in America and has been certified triple Platinum.

August 1, 1974

Elvis remained in Memphis for the rest of the month,

August 1, 1975

August 1, 1976

Elvis performed at the Hampton Coliseum, Hampton Roads, Virginia at 2.30 p.m.

Elvis seemed tired and moody during this show and seems to be out of breath throughout the show – his breathing amplified with its proximity to his mouth. In the intro to I Got A Woman, he sings the opening line, “Well now…” then adds “That’s what I feel. Really. See we had a late show last night and I only got two hours sleep so…” After the song he welcomes the crowd: “Good Afternoon. God that sounds strange, ‘Good Afternoon’. I just got up!…”

Just before introducing the band, Elvis reads a sign held up by someone in the audience.”Please sing Return To Sender? Honey, if we know it.” The riff, normally played during the band introductions then subtly changes beat and Elvis sings one verse of the song, to great applause. “I’m sorry but we hadn’t rehearsed that too much.”

He is obviously conscious of his slightly slurry speech and goes overboard to correct a mistake in the introductions: “I’m gonna ask John to play the guitar on the back of his head. He can do that… I mean James! John. James, John, Matthew, Mark, Luke.” James Burton quickly bursts in with his guitar.

The book “Elvis – What Happened?” went on sale. The book was written based on the experiences of three of Elvis’ ex-bodyguards, Red West, Sonny West and Dave Hebler

The Wake and Aftermath

1981

A new television cable network called MTV (Music Television) started broadcasting music videos, 24 hours a day in the US. The show begins with the intro “Ladies and gentlemen, Rock and Roll.”

The Oak Ridge Boys crossed over from the Country charts to make “Elvira” the top tune on the Cashbox Best Sellers list. The song had been around since 1966 and had been recorded by several others, including Kenny Rogers And The First Edition and Rodney Crowell, with limited success. The Oak’s rendition would reach #5 on the Hot 100 and be certified Platinum for sales of 2 million units by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Shakin’ Stevens led the UK chart with “Green Door”, a song that had risen to #8 in Britain and topped the Billboard chart in 1956 for Country artist Jim Lowe. A cover version by Frankie Vaughan also went to #1 in the UK 1957.

Great Balls Of Fire!, a biographical film about the life of Jerry Lee Lewis, debuts in theatres across America. The movie would fizzle at the box office, but critics gave it mostly positive reviews. Jerry Lee was unhappy with the bumpkin-like portrayal of himself by actor Dennis Quaid and later said, “They really fouled it up, the way they did it.”

U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 into law, authorizing $25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles of coast-to-coast Interstate freeways.

Elvis Presley’s taxes probably funded the highways, as much as needing to ship his product to market.

Elvis and his party took a chartered plane to Charlotte, North Carolina, where they caught a Delta flight to New York City.

Elvis arrives for Steve Allen show rehearsals –
in the era of film photography, he was the most photographed person; because in the 1950s,
was the first time, professional equipment became a consumer product

In New York, Elvis was fitted for a tux for the the Steve Allen Show.

Then there was Steve Allen Show rehearsals. Skitch Henderson was NBC-TV’s musical conductor from 1951 to 1966, as well as The Steve Allen Show’s bandleader during its run on Sunday nights in 1956-60.

The Charlotte Observer reported the following incident in its June 29, 1956, edition. It seems Elvis was sitting in his “baby blue” limousine after his Thursday night show in Charleston, South Carolina, when a girl reporter for The News and Courier approached his car to take a picture. Apparently, she was after a closeup. She was so close that Elvis was able to stick his head out and bite her hand.

Many girls probably would have enjoyed being bitten by Elvis. This reporter was not one of them. “Hey, you big bruiser, what’s the idea?” she asked him. “You trying to make like Marlon Brando or something.”

“I was only being friendly, like a little puppy dog,” Elvis responded.

The reporter told Elvis it was the first time anyone had ever bitten her as a sign of friendship. “Lady, if you want to get ahead, you gotta be different,” explained Elvis. It was a different era. No lawsuit was filed.

James Brown’s first album, Live at the Apollo, debuted on the pop charts, eventually rising to #2. Despite enormous chart success, he never had a #1 pop album of forty-nine albums hit the pop charts through 1988.  Live would remain his all-time biggest success and would be considered a milestone in the development of live albums for years to come.

Del Shannon‘s cover version of the Beatles’ “From Me To You” became the first song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to appear on the American charts, where it would stay for four weeks, reaching #77. The Beatles’ rendition climbed only to #116. The title of the song was inspired from a letters column called From You To Us that ran in the popular British music newspaper, The New Musical Express.

The Wake and Aftermath

 

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1985

David Bowie and Mick Jagger recorded a version of the Martha Reeves and the Vandellas 1964 hit ‘Dancing In The Street.’ for the forthcoming Live Aid fundraising event. The single went on to become a No.1 UK hit. The original plan was to perform a track together live, with Bowie performing at Wembley Stadium and Jagger at John F. Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do.

1991

Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, En Vogue, Levert, and Dianne Reeves, among others, performed on the Celebrate the Soul of American Music  TV show.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2016

Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie filed for divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, just months after the couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the previous January. Lisa Marie had previously been wed to Danny Keough from 1988 until 1994, Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1999 and to actor Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.

Presley Fans Keep Studio From Chopping Sideburns By ALINE MOSBY United Press Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UP) —

Elvis Presley was All Shook Up with gratitude today. Durned if fans didn’t keep MGM Studio from chopping off his famous sideburns and bangs. MGM figured on giving Elvis a crewcut and shaving off those side whiskers because he plays a convict in “Jailhouse Rock”, the third movie on the agenda of the Presley . steamroller through Hollywood. But this caused the biggest crisis in the movie business since Lassie was exposed as a she: Four thousand post cards and letters from Presley fans poured into MGM, begging that the studio let their hero act with his original hair hanging around his sensual- looking face. His Trademark A Fortville, Ind., mother wrote “We love him at our house. Elvis has had more criticism than anyone but his loyal fans stand by.”

The Presleys lived at Audobon Drive, Graceland purchased on March 19.

The song went on to reach number 1 in the UK for a single week.The song also topped Japan’s Utamatic record chart in the fall of 1963.

Touring Australia The Beatles played at Sydney Stadium in Sydney. This was Paul McCartney 22nd birthday and after the show his guests included 17 girls who were winners of the Daily Mirrors ‘Why I would like to be a guest at a Beatles birthday party’ competition.

 

Presley’s return to the charts: For the First Time in the three years since The Beatles rocketed to fame and fortune, the English hit parade has been topped by that figure out of the past, Elvis Presley. His “Crying in the Chapel” displaced Briton Sandie Shaw’s “long Live Love”, according to a recent weekly report, at the top of the pile.

The best The Beatles could do was take 24th place, with “Ticket to Ride”. The Beatles recent appearance on the queen’s birthday honors list, creating them members of the Order of the British Empire, cannot be expected to do much for their dwindled popularity. One teen-age girl, for example, said of The Beatles favor at the royal hand, “They’ve become respectable, and I don’t want anything to more to do with them.”

All along, of course, we knew that even The Beatles would have their day and be replaced. But we did not expect to see so ancient a figure as Elvis Presley rise to occupy the Beatles’ vacated throne – and in the Beatles home country! Isn’t anything certain any more, even the fickleness of addicts to popular records?

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.

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.

In Montgomery, Alabama, a white mob attacked the Freedom Riders, prompting the federal government to send in U.S. marshals.

Elvis Presley’s song “Flaming Star” hit #14 in the U.S. The song was from, “Elvis By Request,” an experimental four-track release Extended Play 45 sized single that played at the Long Play 33rpm speed; and  containing two  songs written for the motion picture Flaming Star (“Flaming Star” and “Summer Kisses Winter Tears”, the latter cut from the final print) and two of his earlier hits on the reverse side. Elvis by Request is the only Presley EP to play at 33⅓ rpm. All of his other EPs were 45 rpm

The “Flaming Star” song was originally recorded as “Black Star” and changed to “Flaming Star” – and the movie was turned down by Brando – with Elvis turning in a solid acting performance placing “Flaming Star” on the Movie Academy Top 100 Westerns for it’s dealing with social issues that sadly remain relevant in 2017.

Bob Dylan and The Band played at the ABC Theatre in Edinburgh, Scotland. Some members of the audience were unhappy with Dylan ‘going electric’, and attempted to overpower the band by playing their own harmonicas.

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who grew tired of waiting for John Entwistle and Keith Moon to arrive for their gig at the Ricky Tick Club in Windsor, England so they took to the stage with the bass player and drummer of the local band that opened the show. When Moon and Entwistle finally arrived in the middle of the set, a fight broke out, with Townshend hitting Moon on the head with his guitar. Moon and Entwistle quit the band, (and rejoined a week later).

May 20, 1969

Chicago singer/bassist Peter Cetera attended a Cubs-Dodgers baseball game in Los Angeles, where four Marines who disapproved of his long hair beat him so badly that his jaw was broken and he lost four teeth. He spent five hours in surgery and two days in intensive care. The incident had an effect on Cetera’s career and, according to him, an impact on his singing style. “With my jaw wired together, I went on the road and I was actually singing through my clenched jaw, which, to this day, is still the way I sing.”

Led Zeppelin started three days of recording and mixing sessions at A&R Studios in New York City, which included the recording of ‘Heartbreaker’ and various other parts for new tracks for the group’s forthcoming second album. The band were under pressure to finish sessions for their second album so they could release it in time for the Autumn market.

Ben Weisman (November 16, 1921 – May 20, 2007) was an American composer significant for having written more songs recorded by Elvis Presley (fifty seven) than any other songwriter in history. The Mad Professor as Weisman was nicknamed by Elvis, worked with the King from 1956 (“First in Line“) to 1971 (“Change of Habit“). Their early association (1957–62) produced many of the most powerful rockers and poignant ballads in Presley’s repertoire, including “Got a Lot o’ Livin’ to Do“, “Follow That Dream“, “Rock-A-Hula Baby“, “Crawfish“, “As Long As I Have You“, “Pocketful of Rainbows” and “Fame and Fortune“.

Elvis had not yet adopted the tactic of bolting from the stage and leaving the building following his final number. Instead, he ended his first show with a corny joke. “It’s been a wonderful show folks,” Porterfield heard him say. “Just remember this. Don’t go milkin’ the cow on a rainy day. If there’s lightning, you may be left holding the bag.”

Greensmith noted as follows how easy it was for Elvis at that time to interact with his young fans:

“When the concert was over, Elvis came to the front of the stage and sat down at the edge to sign autographs on glossy black and white portraits of himself that were held up to him by probably about 100 admiring young women. No one tried to tear off a piece of his clothing or plant a kiss on him. It was all very civilized. But this was early 1956 and Elvis had not hit the peak of his fame that was to follow.”
