September 13, 1955

Little Richard entered J&M Studios in New Orleans for a two day recording session. Things were not going well and during a break, Richard and his producer, Bumps Blackwell, went to the Dew Drop Inn. With few people there and an old upright piano, Richard started playing like crazy, singing loud, lewd and hamming it up. Blackwell was stunned… why couldn’t he record this? They went back to J&M with only fifteen minutes left in the session and “Tutti Fruiti, good booty” became “Tutti Fruiti, aw-rootie”. The song would be Richard’s break-out hit and managed to make it to #17 early the following year, but a cover by Pat Boone over shadowed Richard’s version and went to #12 on the Billboard Pop chart.

Elvis performed at the Shrine Auditorium, New Bern, North Carolina.

The other acts were The Louvin Brothers, Cowboy Copas and The Alabama Stardusters

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

September 13, 1960

In Britain, the director of public prosecution is called upon to ban the American hit “Tell Laura I Love Her” by Ray Peterson. The song was being denounced in the press as likely to inspire a teen-age “glorious death cult.” The story tells of a lovesick youngster who drives in a stock car race to win the hand of his sweetheart. He crashes and just before dying, groans out the words of the title.

With the American music scene still reeling from the “payola” scandal, the US Federal Communications act was amended to outlaw payments of cash or gifts in exchange for airplay of records.

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.

Frankie and Johnny Pre-production

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.

Tucson Daily Citizen from Tucson, Arizona on March 30, 1963 · Page 34

Presley Piques Pakistani Parents By LEMMY PINNA KARACHI W h e n 700 Pakistani youths recently organized an “Elvis Presley Club,” there was a seismic shock throughout this Moslem country’s society.  One weekly newspaper deplored any publicity on formation of such a club, saying it would encourage the youths of Pakistan to “wholesale western waywardness.” Another editorialized: “To set up this hip- swinging matinee idol as a hero shows up our own failure in capturing the imagination of our youths.”

The club, however, operates on a comparatively low-voltage level. According to its president, J9-year-old Zafar Qureishi, it is part of the Elvis Presley Fan Club girding the globe. Equipped with an inner cabinet that is busily working up a constitution, the club is run on a nonprofit basis. “Our admission fee is 5 rupees ($1), with a monthly subscription of 1 rupee (20 cents),” the president said.

“With the funds we will hold regular Elvis Presley movies, concerts and dances.” In one such sponsored screening of Presley’s “Love Me Tender,” the club raised 250 rupees ($50) which it donated to rehabilitation of the victims of the recent Garibabad fire when 1,000 persons were left homeless. “As you can see,” said the active organizer, “our club is aimed at making teen-agers happy, contented, and well adjusted members of society.”

Pakistani parents view the organization with trepidation. Some claimed the Elvis Presley club here to be a hangout for “teddy boys”, youngsters sporting drain- piper trousers and frowned upon for loitering on street corners. Presley club members quickly deny this. “We don’t take hoodlums and bad eggs,” one said. “In fact, a!l applicants are screened and the club is not open to all.”

According to the mother of a girl who now proudly owns a membership card embossed with the photograph of Elvis Presley, the stigma lies not so much in the club itself as on such western influenced items as rock n’ roll, the twist and drain-pipe trousers. These western-type influences have been militantly curbed, albeit unsuccessfully, within this country. Teddy boys have been hounded off Karachi’s sunbaked pavements by the police; movies on “the twist” have been banned b y Pakistan’s C e n s o r Board.

Karachi’s Presley fans, however, shrug away all such adult repressions by saying this is the “first organized a n d healthy” club open to youths of decent families. “And we mean to keep it that way,” a crew-cut boy draped in tight trousers drawled. “We will sponsor another Elvis Presley film soon,” he added. All members will see ‘Kid Galahad’ for free, and what we collect from outsiders will be donated to a charitable organization.” But the tremor that really shook the staid Moslem society here was caused by such club-sponsored terpsichorean feats as an all- night rock n’ roll contest. For some adults who felt at a “loss-for-words” to describe this new western infiltration on the Moslem society, a new word was recently coined: ‘Presleytiz- ing.”

Former Beatles drummer Pete Best appears on US TV’s I’ve Got A Secret. It only took a handful of questions before the panel guessed his former occupation and when host Gary Moore asked him why he left the group, he said “I thought I’d like to start of group of my own and I thought at that time they weren’t going to go as big as they are now.”

The photo session took place at Chelsea Manor studios in London with Michael Cooper for the cover of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album. After the shoot The Beatles resumed work at Abbey Road studios on ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ adding guitars, bass, tambourine, and backing vocals.

They were joined by Rufus Long and Ralph Strobel on flute and oboe in order to lend A middle Eastern touch to the soundtrack.
This was Elvis’ first visit to a recording studio in 8 months and his distraction and disaffection with the material was obvious. He broke off at 3.30 a.m. after only 4 hours in which he did 38 dreary takes of Shake That Tambourine.

Elvis Presley‘s former personal physician, Dr. George C. Nichopoulos, passed away at the age of 88. Known as “Dr. Nick”, Nichopoulos was Presley’s doctor for eleven years before the singer’s death from heart disease on August 16th, 1977. In 1995, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners ultimately revoked his medical license after it ruled he had over-prescribed potentially addictive drugs to thirteen patients, two of whom died and two were musically famous, Elvis and fellow rock ‘n’ roller Jerry Lee Lewis; with the bulk of the patients being Memphis Business men. 

The Simpson’s Dr Nick is based on Dr. George C. Nichopoulos

‘Blue Hawaii’ Opens  New York Times Review (February, 22, 1962)
“Nothing could be prettier or emptier than ‘Blue Hawaii’ . . . Visually, in radiant color, this amiable, synthetic and blandly uneventful movie is probably the brightest poster even for Honolulu and pineapples — in about that order.”

February 22, 1963

Spinout 

 February 22, 1967

Pink Floyd continued working on their debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn at Abbey Road Studios, London. The Beatles were also working at Abbey Road, recording the giant piano chord for the end of ‘A Day In The Life’ for their Sgt. Pepper’S album.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Beatles assistant Mal Evans, sitting at three different pianos, struck a simultaneous E major chord nine times producing the final chord of “A Day In The Life.” George Martin overdubbed the same chord on a harmonium to get an even more lasting effect, and then the entire chord recording, which lasts 43 seconds, was overdubbed three times and attached to the end of the song. The fadeout was elongated by gradually bringing up the volume control in the studio, with the result that rustling papers and a creaking piano stool can be heard during the decay. One of the most famous final chords in music history, it was a replacement for a failed vocal experiment, an ending with them humming the chord, but after hearing it, even with multiple overdubs, they wanted something with greater impact.

Elvis remained at his hotel while backing tracks recordings for the Clambake soundtrack continued from 7.00 p.m. to 5.00 a.m.
February 22, 1968
After their duet of the song “Jackson,” Johnny Cash proposed to June Carter on stage at the London Gardens arena in London, Ontario. They were married a week later.

Lennon sang lead and played lead guitar, including the solo. Paul McCartney played bass and added harmony vocals. At EMI’s Abbey Road Studios, Lennon and George Harrison overdubbed multi-tracked guitars on April 18. Billy Preston’s keyboards and Ringo Starr’s conga drums were added on April 20. A Moog synthesizer (played by Lennon) and more drums were overdubbed on August 8. The “She’s So Heavy” vocals were added on August 11.
 Elvis recorded only Who Am I?  at the last night in the American Studio, with the session and the American experience ended at midnight.
