In Shreveport, Louisiana, KJOE deejay Vern Steirman convinced his station manager to fly the station’s single engine airplane over the city the afternoon of June 10 so that Stierman could drop 50 Presley dog tags from the air. According to Billoard’s June Bundy, it was a merchandising gimmick to promote the release of the new Three-teens record, “Dear 53310761” (Elvis’s army serial number). People finding the tags were directed to take them to Stan’s Record Shop, where they would receive free copies of the new Elvis tribute record.

People finding the tags were directed to take them to Stan’s Record Shop, where they would receive free copies of the new Elvis tribute record.

The Beatles‘ “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” started a 23 week run at #1 on the UK album chart. The LP also topped the Billboard Hot 200 chart for 15 weeks, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and would eventually sell over 30 million copies world wide. Ringo Starr would later comment: “a bunch of songs and you stick two bits of ‘Pepper’ on it and it’s a concept album. It worked because we said it worked.”

After selling over 356,000 copies in the first three weeks after its release, “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” by Procol Harum tops the UK chart. The song would peak at #5 in the US near the end of July. In 2004, the United Kingdom performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited recognized it as the most-played record by British broadcasting of the past 70 years. The same year, Rolling Stone placed “A Whiter Shade of Pale” at #57 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Chuck Berry’s album The London Chuck Berry Sessions charted on its way to #8 pop, the most successful album of his career. One side of the recording consisted of sides cut in a London studio with the Faces,  while the other side was a live and unauthorized (by Berry) recording with the Average White Band at the Lanchester Arts Festival in Coventry, England.

The Rolling Stones double album Exile On Main Street went to No.1 on the UK chart, the bands seventh UK No.1 album. In 2010, the re-released album entered the UK chart at No.1, almost 38 years to the week after it first occupied that position. The Rolling Stones are the first act to ever have a studio album return to No.1 after it was first released.

The album “Elvis Now” hit #12 in the U.K. Unlike Elvis’ other albums Elvis Now encompasses a variety of genres, including country, gospel, soul and pop. The album was certified Gold on March 27, 1992, by the RIAA and reissued by FTD in 2010 as an extended 2 cd set.

The Elvis Presley album “Rock And Roll” hit #34 in the U.K. The album was the reissue of “Rock ‘N’ Roll No. 1.”
