The Sun Records Rockabilly Era

September 3, 1955

Billboard magazine reports that independent record manufacturers are continuing to expand at an unprecedented rate. They took in $20 million last year.

Band leader Mitch Miller had the number one tune on the Billboard pop chart with “The Yellow Rose Of Texas”, a song that was written in 1853. Although he was a powerful A&R man and a brilliant producer, Miller made no secret of the fact that he hated Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Bill Haley And His Comets turn down a $2,000 offer for a 15 date tour of Australia because of their fear of flying. Bill Haley files a law suit against Dave Miller of Essex Records. Haley asks the court to ban Miller from issuing recordings that Haley made while under an Essex contract. The suit describes the recordings as “of inferior quality to said plaintiffs current releases.”

Elvis performed three shows over 2 venues: first at the Big “D” Jamboree, Dallas, TX Sportatorium  and later that night at the RoundUp Club, Dallas.

This was a very memorial day for Elvis and the group. Elvis concluded the engagement by arriving on stage for his final show on Lamar’s back with a toy monkey attached to his neck.

Then he joked around with the crowd, tossing back and forth on a bed (provided by Sonny on stage), while singing What Now My Love. He even mentioned that he was treated poorly by the Hotel. At the end of the show he tried to make up for this by stating: ” I know we kid a lot and have fun and everything, but we really love to sing, play music and entertain people. As long as I can do that, I’ll be a happy old sonofabitch.”

The Colonel was not pleased at all, by Elvis’ behaviour and they even got into a public shouting in the dressing room with a lot of members of the group present at that time. Later that night Elvis fired the Colonel, but the Colonel had already quitted himself. He wanted all the money Elvis owed him and then he moved to his suite to draw up the bill.

dear newspapers, you are a bit late to the internet and asking people to turn off advertising, which wastes bandwidthyour article looked like it might be interesting, but advertising is not why people go online, its why they left television.

“I know people are sad, but it’s just celebrating — people dancing and singing her music,” said Chicagoan Tammy Gibson, who arrived at 5:30 a.m. “I saw the gold-plated casket — it dawned on me: She’s gone, but her legacy and her music will live on forever.”
