Double Trouble

August 27, 1967

The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at his home in Belgravia, London, just a few weeks shy of his 33rd birthday. A coroner’s inquest concluded that Epstein died from an overdose of the sleeping pill Carbitrol. The Fab Four were in Bangor, North Wales at the time, attending a conference by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The death is ruled accidental and the Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death, being in the realm of the physical world, is “not important.” The group would later renounce their association with the Maharishi and Epstein is remembered as being the man who took The Beatles from being a rough looking club act to the most successful band in the world. He also managed several other artists including Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. The first contract between The Beatles and Epstein was auctioned in London in 2008, and was sold for £240,000.

Elvis continued to spend time at the Circle G Ranch but instead of horseback riding he had found a new hobby: target shooting.

Ten Elvis Presley albums re-charted.

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours was making its third run as the #1 album, now in its 16th week at that position.  CSN by Crosby, Stills & Nash was #2 followed by Streisand Superman by Barbra Streisand and the Soundtrack to “Star Wars”.  JT by James Taylor was fifth.  The rest of the Top 10:  I’m in Youby Peter Frampton, Book of Dreams from the Steve Miller Band, the Emotions with Rejoice at 8, the Commodores with their self-titled release and Love Gunfrom Kiss.

The lyric sheet was auctioned again by Sotheby’s in June 2010 when it was purchased by an anonymous American buyer who paid $1,200,000 (£810,000).

2013

Miley Cyrus’s risque performance at the MTV VMAs drew complaints from a parenting pressure group in the US. The Parents Television Council (PTC) issued a complaint against the channel over the 20-year-old’s routine, which saw her dance suggestively in a nude bikini with singer Robin Thicke. It argued the show should not have been rated as suitable for 14 year olds, adding: “Heads should roll at MTV.”

Madonna was named the world’s top-earning celebrity over the past year. The 55-year-old made an estimated $125m (£80m) thanks to her MDNA tour, clothing and fragrance lines, according to Forbes. The magazine said it was the most money Madonna had made in a single year since it began tracking earnings in 1999.

2015

With only 15.66 million digital songs sold in the US during the previous week, the music industry saw its lowest weekly sales since December 2007 when just 15.64 million units were sold. Live music was another matter, as ticket sales for concerts across America were up 5.6% in the first eight months of the year.

The RCA Victor Atomic Powered Singer

May 21, 1956

The U.S. exploded the first airborne hydrogen bomb over Bikini Atoll in the Pacific.

Brenda Lee signed a recording contract with Decca Records.

Doris Day released the single “Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera).” The song was introduced in the Alfred Hitchcock film, “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” starring Day and James Stewart, which had premiered in New York City five days earlier.

Elvis arrived in Topeka by plane where he got off the plane wearing nothing above the waist but a loose fitting, 2 button, shantung suit coat.

Elvis performed at the Municipal Auditorium, Topeka. Kansas, where an estimated 2,500 fans stormed the stage.

That teenage trauma Elvis Presley had about 2,500 Topeka misses envying a microphone Monday night in Municipal Auditorium

The rock-and-roll recording sensation strode onto the stage like a musical Paul Bunyan with a guitar for an axe.
And for 20 minutes, he made love to the “mike,” completely felling most of his already-sold audience.
Anticipating demonstrations similar to those in other cities, Topeka police took no chance.
Several stood at stage-side through Presley’s short performance which followed a variety show.
But the guards were not needed. The stage was too high and Presley was out of the building by a secret exit and into the Hotel Kansan before the youths caught on.

It was a little hard to be sure above the continuing squeals and clapping—but the sensuous 21-year·old from Memphis apparently sang some of the songs which have pushed him to the top of the Hit Parade.
Though he didn‘t give the titles, it was obvious the young fans had heard the loud tunes before.
Heartbreak Hotel,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Money Honey,” and “Hound Dog” were among them.
With movements which would put a burlesque queen to shame, Elvis squirms out his songs. He keeps himself so breathless from the physical contortions that the pleasant timbre of his lower baritone notes can seldom be detected.

Dressed in his famed red coat and black shirt and pants, Elvis has the effect of an earlier Frank Sinatra, with a more robust appeal.
His songs not only transform his fans, but that walk on stage apparently brings a metamorphosis in him.
Off stage. despite some published reports, Elvis is a polite young man, who prefixes nearly every sentence with “Yes, mam,” or “Thank you, mam.”
With a hair cut and a shave for his sideburns. he would not turn many heads on Kansas Avenue. His light brown hair tops very blue eyes and full lips.

He is amazed by it all. It wasn’t long ago that he walked into a public recording studio to cut a record “just to hear myself sing.”
The money ( reported $7.500 a week), which permits him to own several Cadillacs and maintain a new home for his parents, is easy to take, he admits.
Though he soon will make a movie, Elvis said he has “got what I want. But I’d just like to keep giving the people something that they want to hear.”
Whether rock-and-roll is here to stay he doesn’t know.”
He says he will “start worrying when the, girls don‘t mob me.”
However, he no longer exposes himself unnecessarily.
Police have had to guard him at all his recent Western and Midwest stops.
“There is no sense getting your clothes torn off,” he said.
“Several times they got everything but my pants and I had quite a fight for those.”
His garb on arrival at Municipal Airport might explain some of this.
The singer had on nothing above the waist but a loose-fitting, two button shantung suit coat which exposed considerable bare chest.
His style was “just an accident,” he says. But he claims to “admire anybody in any profession that is good at it.”
“A great singer, I could listen to all night. I don’t care whether it is opera or jazz.”
He is quick to refute many egotistical statements attributed to him in magazines and newspapers. ‘
The draft may catch him soon, but in the meantime he claims no matrimonial intentions.
Of the Time Magazine remark attributed to him in this connection-“Why buy a cow when you can get milk through a fence?”—he says, “I never said that.

Dusty Springfield‘s “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” enters the Billboard Hot 100, where it will reach #4 and become her biggest US hit. In the UK, it went all the way to #1.

The Mamas And The Papas went to the top of the Billboard album chart with “If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears”, which contained the singles “Monday Monday” and “California Dreamin'”. The LP was initially credited to the grammatically incorrect The Mama’s and The Papa’s, which was corrected on later printings.

“Paint It Black” from the Rolling Stones was moving up the charts.

Neil Diamond’s first hit debuted on this date, “Solitary Man”. It only reached #55.  Columbia Records would re-release the song in 1970 but even then it only hit #21.

“Monday, Monday” spent a third week at #1 for the Mamas and the Papas, just ahead of “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” from Bob Dylan.  The Rascals’ former #1 “Good Lovin'” was at 3, followed by the relentless “When A Man Loves A Woman” by Percy Sledge.  The rest of the Top 10:  The Mindbenders moved from 13 to 5 with “A Groovy Kind of Love”, Paul Revere & the Raiders’ great song “Kicks” was #6, Nancy Sinatra was stuck on seven with “How Does That Grab You, Darlin’?”, Dionne Warwick’s “Message To Michael” was #8, the Beach Boys slipped to #9 with “Sloop John B” and the Supremes had their eighth top ten song with “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart”, which moved from 15-10.

If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears from the Mamas and Papas was the new #1 album on this date.  Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass climbed from 60 to 2 with What Now My Love.  Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass), the greatest hits package by the Rolling Stones, was at 3 with Alpert & the Tijuana Brass’s album Going Places finally falling from #1.  The great sound of the Brass enabled the group to be on top of the Album charts for 15 weeks that year; they were about the only artist that could compete with the Beatles.  Color Me Barbra from Streisand was #6, followed by Soul & Inspiration by the Righteous Brothers, another Alpert & the Tijuana Brass album (Whipped Cream & Other Delights) falling to #8 in its 54th week, I Hear a Symphony from the Supremes at #9 and The Best of the Animals at #10.
