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

Rolling Stones‘ guitarist Keith Richards made headlines when he told Esquire magazine what he thought of The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” by saying “Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties. Oh, if you can make a load of shit, so can we.”

Guitarist Kimberley Rew sold the rights to his song, “Walking On Sunshine”, as well as the rest of his back catalog, to music company BMG for 16 million dollars. The record was a #9 hit for Katrina And The Waves in 1985. By comparison, In 1973, RCA paid $5.4 million ($28,826,391.89 in 2015 adjusted dollars) for Elvis’ back catalog from that year to his Sun Records recordings.

RCA / Legacy released an Elvis Presley anthology called “Way Down in the Jungle Room”, a two-disc box-set featuring songs he recorded at his home studio during the final 18 months of his life.

Nina your Daily Elvis blogger recommends listening to the Boy from Tupelo and then this Sony release of the FTD, BMG and original RCA releases. For anyone in the public or hardcore fan, who really wants to understand, Elvis Presley the man, who became the first and last entertainer everyone around the world could talk about.

Not to mention that Elvis was the number one reason people learned english in the pre-internet era, and in the 1950s, Adult English speakers did not understand what Elvis was saying, they were too focused on the sex, and scared about the willingness of women to respond to Elvis in public, and fearful of that white man singing black music. Imagine (cue The Beatles), if the 1950s had realized that Elvis was singing women’s songs, it was his vulnerablity more than his bravado that was the source of his female appeal, while his male fans identified with the swagger; Sun Elvis was young and proving himself, at RCA, Elvis displaced the establishment, becoming his own industry; his music of rockabilly became rock an roll when popular, then, he didn’t just make movies, he was a genre all his own, doing world music in the 1960s before it was a 1990s genre, of a return to folk, post disco and soul, stadium rockers, power ballads and music video replacing radio.

after the 1950 Elvis Atomic Singer and the The 1960s British Wave of Cliff Richards, The Beatles and The Rolling Stone; with punk and heavy metal, post disco and soul, stadium rockers, power ballads and music video replacing radio. new waving music so digital smooth it lost the beat rap, in an east vs west wave across the normally north south USA culture divide, became so popular that vocals returned as hip hop.

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.
