Then, at Burbank California NBC Color City Studio 4 (6 & 8 PM) Elvis performed in front of invited audiences for two “sit down” concerts – the forerunner of the much later MTV Unplugged format.

On stage were Elvis with his 1960 J200, and entourage members Charlie Hodge with his Gibson L4 and Alan Fortas with a classical guitar prop used in the special and/or a case both of which he basically just kept on his lap. DJ played percussion on an empty guitar case and Scotty Moore was the only one onstage with an electric guitar, his 1963 Super 400.

Elvis infamously took Scotty Moore’s guitar and stood up, pouting over no strap, which Charlie Hodge sang the line “no strap today” and Elvis carried on.

May 8, 1965

Eight spots in the Billboard Top Ten were occupied by British acts, setting an all-time record: #1 – “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” by Herman’s Hermits, #3 – “Ticket to Ride” by The Beatles, #4 – “Game of Love” by Wayne Fontana And The Mindbenders, #6 – “I Know a Place” by Petula Clark, #7 – “Silhouettes” by Herman’s Hermits, #8 – “I’m Telling You Now” by Freddie And The Dreamers, #9 – “The Last Time” by The Rolling Stones and #10 – “Cast Your Fate to the Wind” by Sounds Orchestral.

The filming of the promotional film for Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues took place at the side of the Savoy Hotel in London. Actors in the background were Allen Ginsberg and Bob Neuwirth. The original clip was actually the opening segment of D. A. Pennebaker’s film, Don’t Look Back, a documentary on Bob Dylan’s 1965 tour of England. In the film, Dylan, who came up with the idea, holds up cue cards for the camera with selected words and phrases from the lyrics. The cue cards were written by Donovan, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Neuwirth and Dylan himself. While staring at the camera, he flipped the cards as the song played.

The Elvis Presley album “Girl Happy” hit #7 in the U.K.

During filming of what became the documentary “Don’t Look Back,” Bob Dylan got the idea for one of the first music videos: a short film of his single “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” featuring him standing in an alley next to London’s Savoy Hotel flipping giant cue cards with the lyrics of the song on them.

Gerry and the Pacemakers announced they were disbanding, recognizing that they could “no longer keep pace with the rapidly changing UK rock scene.”

Elvis 22nd album was a soundtrack disc:”Girl Happy” hit #7 in the U.K. In the US, it peaked at number eight on the Top LP’s chart. It was certified Gold on July 15, 1999 by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Co-starring in the movie was TV actress/singer Shelly Fabres – a duet and a song by her in the movie and on the soundtrack might have increased sales to her fan base. A missed opportunity, even when there were movie duets, the soundtrack would be Elvis alone.

This disc was the 6th in a row that was a soundtrack LP, with only the Elvis Golden Records 3 collection of singles.

Bill Haley & His Comets and released on Decca Records: “Yeah, She’s Evil!”Haley actually recorded his version six days after  just before Elvis’ recording of the same song under the  different name of  “Meanest Girl in town” – and released his single before Elvis’s soundtrack. Burring that original vs cover line rather a lot.

The soundtrack single, a dance tune “Do the Clam” was released approximately a month ahead of the album as a single, peaking at number 21 and is perhaps Elvis’ dirtiest ditty.

Having established himself over the previous three years as a successful country music singer/songwriter, Hank Williams made the first of his religious-themed recordings, many of which were recitations rather than singing, as “Luke The Drifter.” Williams used the alias to avoid hurting the marketability of his name, fearful that disc jockeys and jukebox operators might hesitate to accept these unusual recordings.

Elvis arrived at the RCA studio at McGavock Street. He worked from 2.00 to 10.00 p.m. and recorded his first sides for his new label.
Elvis was backed by his stage drummer, D.J. Fontana for the first time in the studio, in addition to Scotty Moore, Lead Guitar and Bill Black Bassist who were contracted to Elvis, along with RCA guitarist Chet Atkins, piano player Floyd Cramer, Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires and two members (Ben and Brock) of the Speer Family gospel group in an eight hour recording session.
But everyone agreed: they didn’t catch the sound Elvis wanted. There is too much echo effect and the sound is nothing like Sam Philips had created in the Sun studios. Elvis was very disappointed.
RCA even phones Sam Phillips who tells them to let Elvis produce the session and a little about how to place the microphones. For Heartbreak Hotel, the studio door is left open, the hallway creating the echo. The sound of a coke bottle being dispensed is included on the master take. Experimental sounds adding theatrical ambiance.

The North American fascination with CB radios helped push C.W. McCall’s truck driving song, “Convoy” to the top of the Billboard Pop chart. McCall, whose real name is William Dale Fries, Jr., used a pre-Rap vocal technique that wavers between singing and speaking called “sprechgesang” (German for spoken-song and spoken-voice).

Vernon along with Gladys’ brother, Travis Smith and a friend Lether Gable were indicted for forgery.

A check that Orville Bean had made out to Vernon had been altered and the culprits stood accused by Bean. Vernon had sold Bean a hog and received for it, a check for only $4 – a sum much less than he had expected.

Courthouse records do not include details of how large a sum of money the check was altered to, but in her book, Elvis and Gladys, Elaine Dundy says that based on the memories of the people she talked with, it was either fourteen or forty dollars.
