It Happened at the World’s Fair  Production: September 4-13 in Seattle

Rain canceled filming on Monday September 10, and Presley and company lay low.

Visiting the fair as a tourist was the 315-pound New Orleans trumpeter Al Hirt,who was asked his opinions about modern music. He wishfully believed — like all jazzers seemingly did back then — that there was “a strong surge toward the return of the big bands” … ‘Better music is coming back all the time. Even Elvis Presley is changing his material’” (The Seattle Times, September 11, 1962).

September 10, 1963

The Daily Mirror published a two-page article about The Beatles. Written by Donald Zec, the feature is entitled ‘Four Frenzied Little Lord Fauntleroys Who Are Earning 5,000 Pounds A Week’ Zec, who had attended a Beatles concert in Luton on Sept. 6 and then invited them to his home to complete the interview, referred to The Beatles’ haircuts as ‘A stone-age hair style’.

The Monkees‘ “The Last Train To Clarksville” is released in the US. By the first week of November, it will be the top tune in the nation. The lyrics describe a phone call by a military man to his girl, asking that she ‘take the last train to Clarksville’ so they can have one last night together before he has to leave on the morning train. The record topped out at #23 in the UK.

The Beatles started a six-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Revolver the group’s ninth US chart topper. The title ‘Revolver’, like Rubber Soul before it, is a pun, referring both to a kind of handgun as well as the “revolving” motion of the record as it is played on a turntable.

September 10, 1967

Elvis had some brief time between films and wanted to record some new songs and material for new singles as well as bonus songs to fill out the Clamback soundtrack album. One of the songs Elvis really wanted to do was Guitar Man. They fooled around with the song, but couldn’t replicate Reed’s guitar. So Reed was tracked down and asked to play along. Elvis in R.C.A studio in Nashville, shown with fans:

Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967Image result for Elvis presley september 10, 1967

The result of this session was stunning, not only the intended song, but Big Boss Man as well. Unfortunately there was a big fight about the rights of publishing, the Col demanding, Elvis silent and so Reed, song writer and guitarist, stormed out. The session went on till 5.30 a.m. but the atmosphere was ruined.

Guitar Man would be Elvis’ last of eleven #1 Country hits, but did not crack the Billboard Top 40.
