The Wake and Aftermath

 

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1983

For the first time in the history of the Billboard charts, there are more foreign acts in the top 100 than American artists.

1987

Songwriter Boudleaux Bryant died. Wrote with his wife Felice, The Everly Brothers hits, ‘Bye Bye Love’, ‘All I Have To Do Is Dream’, ‘Wake Up Little Susie’ and ‘Raining In My Heart’ a hit for Buddy Holly. Other acts to record their song include Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, the Grateful Dead, Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Roy Orbison, Dean Martin, Ruth Brown, Cher, R.E.M. and Ray Charles. The song duo also composed “Rocky Top,” which became an anthem for the state of Tennessee.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2002

The Ocean’s 11 Movie Remix of  Elvis Presley’s “A Little Less Conversation” was released.

In 2002, the TV special version of “A Little Less Conversation” remixed by Junkie XL was used for Nike‘s 2002 FIFA World Cup advertising campaign, titled Secret Tournament.[5] A single, credited to “Elvis vs. JXL”, was issued and went on to become a Number 1 hit in over 20 countries – but in the United States, the song peaked at number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart, the first Hot 100 hit for Presley since 1981, and extending his list of charted singles into the 21st century.

In Shreveport, Louisiana, KJOE deejay Vern Steirman convinced his station manager to fly the station’s single engine airplane over the city the afternoon of June 10 so that Stierman could drop 50 Presley dog tags from the air. According to Billoard’s June Bundy, it was a merchandising gimmick to promote the release of the new Three-teens record, “Dear 53310761” (Elvis’s army serial number). People finding the tags were directed to take them to Stan’s Record Shop, where they would receive free copies of the new Elvis tribute record.

The Beatles‘ “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” started a 23 week run at #1 on the UK album chart. The LP also topped the Billboard Hot 200 chart for 15 weeks, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and would eventually sell over 30 million copies world wide. Ringo Starr would later comment: “a bunch of songs and you stick two bits of ‘Pepper’ on it and it’s a concept album. It worked because we said it worked.”

After selling over 356,000 copies in the first three weeks after its release, “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” by Procol Harum tops the UK chart. The song would peak at #5 in the US near the end of July. In 2004, the United Kingdom performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited recognized it as the most-played record by British broadcasting of the past 70 years. The same year, Rolling Stone placed “A Whiter Shade of Pale” at #57 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Chuck Berry’s album The London Chuck Berry Sessions charted on its way to #8 pop, the most successful album of his career. One side of the recording consisted of sides cut in a London studio with the Faces,  while the other side was a live and unauthorized (by Berry) recording with the Average White Band at the Lanchester Arts Festival in Coventry, England.

The Rolling Stones double album Exile On Main Street went to No.1 on the UK chart, the bands seventh UK No.1 album. In 2010, the re-released album entered the UK chart at No.1, almost 38 years to the week after it first occupied that position. The Rolling Stones are the first act to ever have a studio album return to No.1 after it was first released.

The album “Elvis Now” hit #12 in the U.K. Unlike Elvis’ other albums Elvis Now encompasses a variety of genres, including country, gospel, soul and pop. The album was certified Gold on March 27, 1992, by the RIAA and reissued by FTD in 2010 as an extended 2 cd set.

The Elvis Presley album “Rock And Roll” hit #34 in the U.K. The album was the reissue of “Rock ‘N’ Roll No. 1.”

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

1978

The Rolling Stones released Some Girls, their 14th British and 16thAmerican studio album and their first studio album recorded with Ronnie Wood as a full member. 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.

What’s Love Got to Do With It?, a film about singer Tina Turner and how she rose to Rock stardom with her husband Ike Turner, opened in US theatres.

The U.S. Postal Service, following on the Elvis Stamp sales, debuted its Legends of American Music, Rock and Roll-Rhythm and Blues stamp collection.

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.

“The film? (Change of Habit) … it’s a change of pace for me, yeah. It’s more serious than my usual movies, but it don’t mean I’m aiming for a big dramatic acting scene, no sir. The way I’m headed, I want to try something different now, but not too different. I did this film because the script was good, and I guess I know by now what the public goes for. Most of the scripts that come my way are all the same. They’ve all got a load of songs in them, but I just did a western called ‘Charro!’ which hasn’t any songs ‘cepting the title tune. It did have a couple of nude scenes, but they’ve been cut. Anyhow, can you imagine a dramatic western where the hero breaks into song all the time?” — San Francisco Chronicle, June 8, 1969.

Bill Wyman became the first Rolling Stone to release a solo album with Monkey Grip, (it peaked at No.39 in the UK and No.99 in the US). The album featured guest appearances by, Dr John, Leon Russell and Lowell George.

Paul McCartney and Wings went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Band On The Run’ his third solo US No.1, a No.3 hit in the UK. McCartney later stated that George Harrison unwittingly contributed the first line of one part of the song: “If we ever get out of here” when he said it during one of the many Beatles’ business meetings.

David Bowie started a four-week run at the top of the UK charts with his third No.1 album ‘Diamond Dogs’. The cover art features Bowie as a striking half-man, half-dog grotesque painted by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert. It was controversial as the full painting clearly showed the hybrid’s genitalia. Very few copies of this original cover made their way into circulation at the time of the album’s release.

Dolly Parton was at No.1 on the US country chart with ‘I Will Always Love You’. Elvis Presley indicated that he wanted to cover the song. Parton was interested until Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, told her that it was standard procedure for the songwriter to sign over half of the publishing rights to any song Elvis recorded. Parton refused. ‘I Will Always Love You’ later became a worldwide No.1 hit for Whitney Houston in 1992 when featured in The Bodyguard.
