The song would reach #1 in the UK and #3 in the US and was later ranked at #39 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. In 2005, the recording was placed in the National Recording Registry, a list of sound recordings that “are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.” It was also the first song to be recorded by The Quarrymen, the skiffle group that subsequently became The Beatles.

The album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan was released by Columbia in the USA. Establishing Bob Dylan as a leader in the singer-songwriter genre and a supposed spokesman for the youth-orientated protest movement, it reached No.22 in the US charts and No.1 in the UK charts. The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan showcased Dylan’s songwriting talent for the first time and propelled him to national and international fame.

The Beatles released “From Me To You” b/w “Thank You Girl” on the Vee-Jay label in the U.S. It failed to chart, but later in the year a Del Shannon cover version of “From Me To You” became the first Lennon-McCartney composition to enter the U.S. pop chart.

Virgin Records releases the anti-establishment anthem “God Save The Queen” by The Sex Pistols. UK sales will reach over 150,000 in the first five days, despite the fact that major retailers refuse to sell the record and the BBC bans it from air-play. Against all odds, the single still reached #2 on the UK singles chart. It sold 200,000 copies in one week and peaked at No.2 on the UK charts behind Rod Stewart’s ‘I Don’t Want to Talk About It’. There have been persistent rumours, (never confirmed or denied), that it was actually the biggest-selling single in the UK at the time, and the British Phonographic Industry conspired to keep it off the No.1 slot.

At the Nashville club in London, Declan McManus made his stage debut as Elvis Costello.

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.

Only his guitarist Mick Ronson knew about the announcement, which came as a complete shock not only to the audience but the rest of Bowie’s band and crew.

61-year-old Perry Como, the crooner who scored a string of hits in the 1950s, makes an unlikely return to the US record charts when his recording of Don McLean’s “And I Love You So” cracks the Top 30. The guitar you hear in the background was played by Chet Atkins.

On July 3rd, the Times would report the actual ratings:

N.B.C.-TV’s Steve Allen toppled C.B.S.-TV’s Ed Sullivan in the hotly contested 8 to 9 P. M. time period last Sunday. Mr. Allen, who featured Elvis Presley, singer, scored a Trendex rating of 20.2 as against Mr. Sullivan’s 14.8. The former attracted 55.3 per cent of the viewing audience and the latter drew 39.7 per cent. It was N.B.C.’s best showing since May 30, 1954. During the 1955-1956 season, N.B.C. surpassed Mr. Sullivan only three times.10

The show managed to beat out Sullivan’s in spite of the number of high profile guests that appeared that night which included John Huston, Jose Ferrer, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, Burl Ives and even Gregory Peck reenacting scenes from his upcoming film “Moby Dick.”

The King earned $5,000 for the performance and headed for the studio the next day to record the song for a single release. US TV critic John Crosby panned Elvis’ performance, calling him an ‘unspeakable, untalented and vulgar young entertainer.’

Following the Steve Allen show – Elvis returned to the Warwick Hotel where he appeared on the only national talk show interview of his life – Hy Gardner Calling.

Steve Allen would maintain that Elvis was in on the joke being made of him, and Elvis never got over it – even referring to it in 1969 Vegas concert return. That North vs South divide of America.
