The Beatles appeared live on the ABC Television program “Lucky Stars (Summer Spin)”, performing ‘A Hard Day’s Night’, ‘Long Tall Sally’, ‘Things We Said Today’ and ‘You Can’t Do That’. To avoid the crowd of fans waiting for them, The Beatles arrived at the Teddington Studio Centre by boat, traveling down the River Thames.

Although the music world was being dominated by Rock and Roll, crooner Dean Martin’s version of a tune written in 1947, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, cracked the Billboard Top 40 on its way to number one. This would be Dino’s first Top 40 hit since 1958 and ultimately replaced “That’s Amore” as his signature song.

After being recorded on May 18th in just one take, The Animals‘ “House of the Rising Sun” topped the UK chart.

Stevie Wonder released his first single without the title “Little” in front of his name. “Hey Harmonica Man” reached number 29 on the singles chart, his third Top 40 hit.

‘Space Oddity’ by David Bowie was released in the UK for the first time. It was timed to coincide with the Apollo moon landing but had to be re-released before it became a hit, later in the year in the UK (but not until 1973 in the US). Bowie would later revisit his Major Tom character in the songs ‘Ashes to Ashes’, ‘Hallo Spaceboy’ and possibly the music video for ‘Blackstar’.

The Rolling Stones‘ “Honky Tonk Women” is released. The band started recording the tune as a Country song based on Hank Williams’ “Honky Tonk Blues”, but found that it made a better rocker.

Self Portrait gave Bob Dylan his fifth UK No.1 album. Released by Columbia Records, his tenth studio album was Dylan’s second double album, and featured mostly cover versions of well-known pop and folk songs.

Three Dog Night started a two-week run at No.1 in the US with their version of the Randy Newman song ‘Mama Told Me Not To Come’, which was also a No.3 hit in the UK. The song was first covered by Eric Burdon on his first solo album in 1966 and gave Tom Jones & Stereophonics a No.4 hit on the UK Singles Chart in 2000

The soundtrack to the 1969 Woodstock concert becomes the first triple-disc album to top the Billboard chart.

Elvis Presley’s “The Wonder of You” hit #1 in the U.K.  In the United States, both songs charted at #9 together in the spring of 1970; also reached number 37 on the US Country Singles chart, and number one on the easy listening chart. “The Wonder of You” was one of his most successful records in the UK ever, topping the UK Singles Chart for six weeks in the summer of that year. It also stayed at number one in the Irish Charts for three weeks that same year. This was the 59th Top 40 hit of his career.  “The Wonder of You” was one of about thirty-five songs Elvis would regularly perform at concerts. According to the original performer, Ray Peterson, “He [Elvis] asked me if I would mind if he recorded ‘The Wonder of You.’ I said, ‘You don’t have to ask permission; you’re Elvis Presley.’ He said, ‘Yes, I do. You’re Ray Peterson.'”

July 11, 1971

The Bruce Springsteen Band opened for Humble Pie at the Sunshine In, Asbury Park in New Jersey. After the show an impressed Peter Frampton from Humble Pie, tells Springsteen and the band he’d like to have them open for them on a national basis. Frampton also said he would be happy to get the band an audition with his record label, A & M Records. For no logical reason Springsteen’s manager Tinker West declined both offers on the spot.

July 5, 1954

Elvis, Scotty and Bill reported to Sun after work. This was his first commercial session. They tried to get something right, but Sam was not impressed.

Harbour Lights, nice, eventually released on the RCA Legendary Performer Series of what was thought to be bottom of the bin leftovers – masters of unreleased songs or substantially different versions or particular live performances.

I love You Because – sweet and not released by Sun but used by RCA to fill out Elvis’ first album – the Iconic Pink n Green Elvis Presley Hillbilly Cat Yowling Guitar

 

During a break Elvis burst out in “That’s All Right” and Sam Phillips demanded to know what Elvis was doing – and to do it again with the tape machine running. and he’s on the take, a hot damn little man, that’s a pop song now!

Not everyone was convinced of its commercial appeal. Upon hearing the playback, lead guitarist Scotty Moore said, “They’ll run us out of town when they hear this.”

Sam Phillips then rushed the one sided record to the biggest DJ in Memphis, Dewey Phillips (no relation) and it became Elvis’s breakout hit – and is the first rock n roll record that established the Rock n Roll band as Strings with drums later.

June 9, 1954

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. The flipside is likely another slow country ballad with just Elvis on guitar, i.e. not Without You since Elvis paid for the acetate. The receipt is very similar to the one for I’ll Never Stand in Your Way It Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

The Beatles on the last night of their tour with Roy Orbison, performed at King George’s Hall, Blackburn, Lancashire. They had been the opening act for Orbison, and mid-tour, switched, it was during this tour that The Beatles’ fans started throwing jelly babies at them while they were on stage, after an off-the-cuff remark on television that George Harrison enjoyed eating them. On their early tours in the U.S., they were pelted with much harder jelly beans.

Barbra Streisand sang “When The Sun Comes Out” on CBS-TV’s “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Other performing guests on the program included the McGuire Sisters, Stiller & Meara, and Guy Marks.

June 9, 1964

During an evening session Bob Dylan recorded Mr. Tambourine Man at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City. This was the first session for the Another Side Of Bob Dylan, which saw Dylan recording fourteen original compositions that night. The Byrds later recorded a version of Mr. Tambourine Man that was released as their first single and reached No.1 on both the US & UK Chart. The Byrds’ recording of the song was influential in initiating the musical subgenre of folk-rock, leading many contemporary bands to mimic its fusion of jangly guitars and intellectual lyrics in the wake of the single’s success.

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.

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 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.

June 5, 1954

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. The flipside is likely another slow country ballad with just Elvis on guitar, i.e. not Without You since Elvis paid for the acetate. The receipt is very similar to the one for I’ll Never Stand in Your Way It Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

Elvis Presley made his second appearance on Milton Berle’s Texaco Star Theatre, where his hip swinging gyrations during his performance of “Hound Dog” provoked howls of outrage. TV critics panned him, saying his performance looked ‘like the mating dance of an aborigine’, while others said he had ‘no future in the music business.’ Jack Gould of The New York Times declared, ‘Mr. Presley has no discernible singing ability’, while John Crosby of the New York Herald Tribune called Elvis ‘unspeakably untalented and vulgar’.

In a short article in Variety on June 5, 1957, Sinatra, then on the set of Pal Joey in Hollywood, was asked to comment of Presley’s singing ability. He responded: “Only time will tell. They said I was a freak when I first hit, but I’m still around. Presley has no training at all. When he goes into something serious, a bigger kind of singing, we’ll find out if he is a singer. He has a natural, animalistic talent.”

Priscilla was also out riding Domino, and GeeGee on Willy.  The grounds were full of fans and Mr. Pepper kept blowing his whistle. Elvis laughingly said, “Mr. Pepper’s got that whistle caught in his throat, hasn’t he?” Elvis was in a great mood, laughing, joking acting silly and doing some of his impressions like Glen Campbell and Ray Stephens, saying “Let’s hear it for the monkey – Guitarzan.”  Elvis stayed out until after dark. Then he went to the Memphian.

And Elvis started singing that song.  He also sang “Do You Know The Way to San Jose?”  The second movie was  “Eye of the Devil”. The evening ended at 3:15 am.

The Rolling Stones became the first artists to receive record royalties from the Soviet Union. Until the country’s copyright laws were changed, the Soviets had made no payment to any artist for work released or used in that country.

During recording sessions for Wish You Were Here at Abbey Road Studios, London, England, Syd Barrett turned up out of the blue as Pink Floyd were listening to playbacks of Shine On You Crazy Diamond — a song that happened to be about Barrett. By that time, the 29-year-old Barrett had shaved off all of his hair (including his eyebrows), become overweight, and his ex-bandmates did not at first recognise him. Barrett eventually left without saying goodbye, and none of the band members ever saw him again.

Many Entertainers Defended Elvis Presley in the Fifties

Singer Mel Torme, for example, said, “I was shocked to hear that a man of integrity like Hal Wallis had referred to Presley as a great dramatic actor. It just shows how far a man will go for the almighty dollar.” (The Arizona Republic, June 14, 1956). And there were undoubtedly other entertainers who felt contempt for Elvis but kept it to themselves.

2001

Officials in Singapore threw out an appeal against a ban on Janet Jackson’s latest album, ‘All For You’. They decided that the lyrics of the album, particularly one song, ‘Would You Mind’, were “not acceptable to our society”. The record was initially outlawed because of its “sexually explicit lyrics”, including “I just wanna touch you, tease you, lick you, please you, love you, make love to you.” EMI were attempting a compromise by trying to persuade Jackson’s management to delete ‘Would You Mind’ from the album.

2007

Sir Paul McCartney released his 21st solo album, ‘Memory Almost Full’ on the new Hear Music Starbucks label. It was later announced that all copies sold through UK Starbucks would not be eligible for the UK charts as the 533 stores were not registered with the Official Chart Company. The album was being played non-stop in more than 10,000 Starbucks outlets across 29 countries.

Jurors in the murder trial of music producer Phil Spector were shown the bloody revolver that was found at the feet of Lana Clarkson, the actress he was accused of killing at his home in the early hours of February 3rd, 2003.

In London, following a 20-month investigation, former pop singer Gary Glitter was charged with committing eight child sex offenses in the late 1970s involving girls aged between 12 and 14. The 70-year-old singer, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was found guilty in February 2015 and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

2016

The four members of ABBA performed alongside one another for the first time since 1982 at a private gala to mark 50 years since songwriting duo Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson met for the first time in Stockholm. The impromptu performance reportedly began when Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstadon recited their 1980 hit “Me and I” as a tribute to Andersson and Ulvaeus, before the two others joined in and made the reunion official.

The final day of the sell-out Rock am Ring music festival in Germany was cancelled after lightning hurt at least 80 fans. At least eight people were seriously injured by the lightning strike. Red Hot Chili Peppers were among several bands, including Black Sabbath, Foals, Deftones and We Are Scientists, who were part of the line-up at the festival.

Of the engagements, Lee Cotten wrote:

Elvis, billed as “a county and bop singer, ” was scheduled to join Hank Snow for a four-day run at the Lyric Theater in Indianapolis. According to a later report in the Indianapolis Times (August 8, 1956), Snow was detained by a winter storm. When he failed to make the first date, Elvis carried on with just the supporting acts, comedian Rod Brasfield and Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters. For the four-day engagement, Elvis was paid a total of $750. The William Morris Agency of New York, which was already involved in negotiations with Colonel Parker, sent out Lou Mindling from Chicago to take a look at Elvis. Mindling’s positive report to the head office soon led to Elvis signing with the powerful William Morris Agency, which would negotiate future bookings.
