1934

August 7, 1934…The U.S. Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that struck down the government’s ban on the James Joyce novel “Ulysses.” At issue was whether or not the novel was obscene. The Appeals Court confirmed that offensive language in a literary work is not obscene where it does not promote lust, an opinion now more widely interpreted as an affirmation of literary free expression.

The August 7, 1954 issue of “The Billboard” Magazine included the following review of the “That’s All Right”/”Blue Moon of Kentucky” single. “Presley is a potent new chanter who can sock over a tune for either the country or the r. & b. markets. On this new disk he comes thru with a solid performance on an r. & b.-type tune and then on the flip side does another fine job with a country ditty. A strong new talent.”

Elvis Presley performed at the Eagle’s Nest, in Memphis Tennessee, (the first of 12 shows at the venue in this year). The advertisement in the local paper read; ‘See and hear Elvis singing That’s All Right and The Blue Moon of Kentucky.’

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.

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.
