At EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London, the Beatles began recording the Paul McCartney composition “Paperback Writer,” which they completed the following day.

The track is also notable because of its boosted bass guitar, which occurred partly in response to John Lennon demanding to know why the bass on a Wilson Pickett record far exceeded the bass on any Beatles record.

Following his newfound success as a country music artist Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry.  Although Opry officials had directed him to play only country music songs and to keep his comments clean, Lewis eventually defied instructions by playing his classic rock ‘n’ roll hits and declaring himself “the rock & rollin’, country & western, rhythm & blues singin’ motherf—–.”

Elvis put down a deposit of $75,000 on an impounded Boeing 707 but the deal fallsl through. The previous owner had been Robert Vesco, the fugitive financier who had fled to South America after allegedly embezzling hundreds of millions of dollars from international investment firms. Buying his plane would involve some complicated wrangling with the IRS. And Elvis was warned about another complication: If the plane ever landed in any of the countries Vesco was establishing a base in, there was every reason to believe that he might try to seize it.

In April Elvis buys a Convair 880 Jet recently taken out of service by Delta Airlines for the then-substantial sum of $250,000. With complete refurbishing the total exceeded $600,000. He immediately rechristened it the Lisa Marie.

After hearing Don Kinney, a Denver television newsman, joking on the air about Elvis’ generosity and telling he wanted a car too, Elvis bought him a Seville. Don Kinney contradicts this and tells his story.
Meanwhile the vacation in Denver wasn’t a great success and Jerry Schilling quit for good, telling Elvis that “friendship is more important than the job”.
Felton Jarvis had arranged for Elvis to record at Buss Cason’s new up-to-date Nashville studio, Creative Workshop. Felton was confident that Elvis would feel at home there. The band was Elvis’ own, plus Chip Young on guitar and Randy Cullers on percussion. But just hours before the scheduled start, Joe Esposito called to say Elvis had not yet left Memphis.
Elvis didn’t attend because he could not get Ginger Alden to accompany him according to Memphis Mafia Members while in Ginger Alden’s book, she puts it down to Elvis having a cold (but, given that that really helped during the American Sound Sessions in 1969…) the Jungle Room sessions would be Elvis last recording session.
RCA would have to record concerts in hopes of new songs.
