HIGHLIGHT FOR 2018

July 13, 1956

“Hound Dog” b/w “Don’t Be Cruel.” released – it was the first single that the A and B sides races each other up the chart.

Within a few weeks “Hound Dog” had risen to #2 on the Pop charts with sales of over one million.Soon after it was overtaken by “Don’t Be Cruel” which took #1 on all three main charts; Pop, Country, and R ‘n’ B.

Don’t Be Cruel” is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and written by Otis Blackwell and Elvis Presley in 1956. By the end of 1956 it had sold in excess of four million copies.[1][3] Billboard ranked it as the No. 2 song for 1956.

It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2004, it was listed #197 in Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song is currently ranked as the 173rd greatest song of all time, as well as the sixth best song of 1956, by Acclaimed Music

Between them, both songs remained at #1 on the Pop chart for a run of 11 weeks tying it with the 1950 Anton Karas hit “The Third Man Theme” and the 1951/1952 Johnnie Ray hit “Cry” for the longest stay at number one by a single record from late 1950 onward until 1992’s smash “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men.

Elvis Presley Letters from Omaha in 1956 – Elvis History Blog

Marjorie Howe’s concert review, published in theJournal on May 24, 1956. The headline read, “Teenagers Like Presley’s Antics—But Others Do Not!” Miss Howe clearly was in the latter group. “His performance was the most disgusting exhibition this reporter has ever seen,” she declared. “Elvis Presley is the male counterpart of a hoochee-koochee dancer in a burlesque show. The writhing goes on while Presley is singing Blue Suede Shoes or Hound Dog, but his frenzied singing and guitar strumming are only incidental to the act. In fact, the singing can barely be heard above the crowd noise for every paroxysm brings a fresh outbreak of shrieks from the audience.”

Howe took time off from her criticism of Elvis’s act to censure the singer’s appearance. “He has a sulkey look and his infrequent smile is almost surly,” she observed. She added (Elvis fans, take a deep breath now), “He wears long sideburns and is beginning to get fat.”

Arthur ‘Killer’ Kane, bass player with The New York Dolls, died aged 55 after checking himself in to a Los Angeles emergency room, complaining of fatigue. He was quickly diagnosed with leukaemia, and died within two hours. The influential American band formed in 1972 and made just two albums, the 1973 ‘New York Dolls’ and 1974 ‘Too Much Too Soon’. His estranged wife wanted to honour her late husband’s wishes and bury him next to former Dolls stars Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan in Mount St Mary’s cemetery in Brooklyn, New York, but officials at the morgue refused to release his body for burial because his remains were so decomposed. (His body had laid in a morgue for over a month).

Tom Jones received an apology from Island Records after a company executive’s e-mail branded his comeback album Praise & Blame a “sick joke.” However, the e-mail leak prompted some members of the UK press to suggest that it was actually a clever marketing stunt in the build-up to the July 26 release.

2012

Roger Waters’ tour The Wall Live, topped worldwide concert ticket sales for the first half of 2012. The show based Pink Floyd’s hit 1970s album, took $158.1m (£102.3m) beating Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. Waters sold 1.4 million tickets according to Pollstar magazine, which tracks the live concert business.

Rapper 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. A report in the Wall Street Journal said the businessman and actor had assets and debts in the range of $10m to $50m (£6.5m- £32m). The news came out just days after a jury ruled that he must pay $5m to a woman suing over a sex tape case.

Clark County medical examiners issued a statement that said they had found no evidence to prove allegations by two of B.B. King’s adult children that the Blues legend had been poisoned, hastening their father’s death last May.

ROLLS WHEN THEY ROCK
ELVIS PRESLEY FLEES TO CAR AFTER 20 MINUTES ON STAGE

Surge of Teen-Agers Convinces Guitarist It Isn’t Safe to Stay and Finish His Song.
By Bill Moore (A Member of the Star’s Staff)

Elvis Presley, the males and modern version of what some gay old blades may remember as the sideshow dancer, lasted just 20 minutes on the stage of the Municipal Auditorium Arena last night before the mob started after him.
Elvis fought his way clear of the hysterical swarm of teen-age girls that broke through he police lines, then he jumped into a motor car parked in the corridor backstage and was off like a frightened gazelle. He left in the middle of a note – if the act he had been performing could be called singing.
Heartbreak at Exit.
The girls rushed the back exit, milled around in the corridor and were finally pushed back by police. But Elvis was gone. There wasn’t much left to do but to move out the crowd.
Elvis, who is 21, is billed as the nation’s only atomic-powered singer. Some of the adults in the audience of 2500 commented that if this is the use to be made of atomic power, the idea of splitting the atom was the saddest mistake the world has made.
Between gyrations, Elvis jigs across the stage dragging the microphone after him leaning at almost horizontal angles. He whangs the daylights out of a guitar. He shouts and moans. But the Presley voice – and there may be some who will still insist he has one – is lost on the screams of the girl enthusiasts.

A Few Boys in Crowd.
Elvis took the stage at 9:30 o’clock, wearing a fox-hunt scarlet coat and black pants. Several hundred girls, apparently ranging in age from 12 to 17 for the most part, left their seats and made the big rush forward. There were a few teen-age boys in the crowd which barged up to be within almost touching distance, but it was the girls who touched off the sustained pandemonium that followed. One girl got through before Elvis had twanged his first note on the guitar. Sobbing and shrieking she was led off the stage by a patrolman. Then Elvis went into his act. The noise hit a higher pitch. His gyrations got looser and faster.
Problem for Police.
Police gathered on the stage. Others strode at a sort of a dog trot around the sides, attempting to herd the girls back – gently but just sort of firmly. But police have a rough time of it when the opposition is composed of young young girls caught up in such an emotional dither. The police had a choice of getting rough or just letting things take their course. They chose not to get rough.
Elvis got through four or five songs before the roof finally fell in. A girl got past the police, bounced up on the stage, and hugged and kissed her panting crocodile. A policeman got her off again, but the signal for the avalanche was on.
As the cool cats would say, they were determined to get really with him. They poured over the front and over the sides of the stage. They surrounded their almost prostrated hero, reaching for buttons, a piece of his shirt, a lock of his ducktail or anything else they could grab. The Presley gyrations stopped suddenly. He was immobilized.

Cats at His Heels.
Then he broke out and fled, a couple of steps ahead of his pursuers. Hours later some of the girls were reported groping aimlessly through the lobbies of the downtown hotels, calling for Elvis. It is reported that the next Presley stop is Detroit. An inspector for the welfare department said when it was all over that he hoped the entertainer would keep going until he reached a point from which his voice, if heard at all, will be the faintest of echoes – some spot, say, like Outer Mongolia.
The crowd was described by Harry Peebles, operator of a booking agency at Wichita, as one of the smallest Elvis ever has drawn. Peebles said too many students were home boning up for high school final examinations.
Calm Before Storm.
The performance started at 8:10 o’clock and before the Presley appearance on the stage it was confined to clean type of singing and comedy. The other members of his troupe played and sang everything form swing stuff to Dixieland. There was a 6-piece band, a girl singer, a comedian, a lyric tenor, and a men’s quartet. Their part of the show was entertainment. It was received with enthusiasm, but the enthusiasm was within bounds.
An adult who has an important role in show business here lingered in the auditorium after the tumult and shouting had died away. He was asked for his reaction to the Presley performance. He did not speak. He merely pressed two fingers to his nose.

Elvis Presley Letters from Omaha in 1956 – Elvis History Blog

Marjorie Howe’s concert review, published in theJournal on May 24, 1956. The headline read, “Teenagers Like Presley’s Antics—But Others Do Not!” Miss Howe clearly was in the latter group. “His performance was the most disgusting exhibition this reporter has ever seen,” she declared. “Elvis Presley is the male counterpart of a hoochee-koochee dancer in a burlesque show. The writhing goes on while Presley is singing Blue Suede Shoes or Hound Dog, but his frenzied singing and guitar strumming are only incidental to the act. In fact, the singing can barely be heard above the crowd noise for every paroxysm brings a fresh outbreak of shrieks from the audience.”

Howe took time off from her criticism of Elvis’s act to censure the singer’s appearance. “He has a sulkey look and his infrequent smile is almost surly,” she observed. She added (Elvis fans, take a deep breath now), “He wears long sideburns and is beginning to get fat.”

The Military Service Disruption

May 24, 1958

Elvis Presley’s single “Wear My Ring Around Your Neck” hit #3 in the U.S. and U.K.

It was Presley’s 6th number-one hit in the American R&B Charts, but peaked at #2 on the American Pop and #3 Country Charts; this single notable for breaking a string of ten consecutive number 1 hits that Presley achieved in an astonishing two years – and certainly being drafted did not help, and that career momentum was lost; with the potential later squandered.

“Doncha’ Think It’s Time” managed #21 on the Hot and 10 RnB charts.

He didn’t have to sing. All he had to do was stand there and move something – a finger, a leg, a shake of the head. It was all the same. Every time he struck a different pose, the flashbulbs and the screams would start again.

But Elvis did sing, and it was his old stuff that brought the greatest response – “Treat Me Like a Fool,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “It’s Now or Never,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” and more.

The stamp marked his contribution to the Live Aid charity concert in 1985, and caused controversy by featuring a small portion of Queen’s drummer, Roger Taylor, in the background – UK stamps by tradition only carry pictures of living persons who are members of the Royal Family.

Sonny West, one of the original members of Elvis Presley’s Memphis Mafia, died of lung cancer at the age of 79. Joining Elvis in 1960, he was abruptly fired, along with his cousin Red and bodyguard Dave Hebler, in 1976 without explanation. The following year he co-authored the book Elvis, What Happened?.

Image result for elvis what happened

Sonny West was one of the three bodyguards manipulated by Steve Dunleavy, who worked for Rupert Murdoch in the original Elvis expose book – Dee Stanley and her three sons would poison pen “Elvis We Love You Tender” and other volumes blaming Elvis for their Mother leaving their father; and the more infamous Albert Goldman Elvis in 1984, which Lamar Fike was duped for. Sonny West wrote a later balanced book.

Last year that Sonny West was confirmed to have stage 4 lung cancer – although he had been battling with serious medical issues over the last 5 years.

Sonny West told EIN, “Elvis was a substantial part of my life, and one that I truly enjoyed living. I didn’t handle the news of Elvis’ death well at all. I was devastated and just fell apart. – Elvis should never had died so young. Why should someone so talented, with so much still to offer the world in music and movies have to die so early in his life with so much left to give. If that old saying, “only the good die young” is true. Elvis is that personified.
Elvis knew there was something special about him being who and what he was. He just didn’t know what or why. But I am sure he, just as the rest of us, never expected it to be this overwhelming, and for this long with no end in sight. It is truly something very special.”

RCA Victor introduces the 45 rpm single record, which had been in development since 1940. The 7 inch disc was designed to compete with the 33 1/3 LP introduced by Columbia a year earlier. Both formats offered better fidelity and longer playing time than the 78 rpm platter that was currently in use. Advertisements for new record players boasted that with 45 RPM records, the listener could hear up to ten records with speedy, silent, hardly noticeable changes.

The first 45 rpm released was “Texarkana Baby” by country & western singer Eddy Arnold. The disc was made of green vinyl, part of an early plan to color-code singles according to the genre of music they featured. Others included yellow for children’s songs and red for classical music.
