This Week In Music History – August 11 – August 17

BookerT_&theMG'sGreenOnionsOn August 11, 1962, Booker T. and the MG’s song, “Green Onions,” was released. The instrumental cut was ranked #183 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. In 1999 “Green Onions” was given a Grammy Hall of Fame Award and in 2012 it was added to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry list of “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” American sound recordings.

 

 

 

kisssssIn August of 1973, after seeing KISS play at a New York hotel, producer Bill Aucoin offered to become their manager and promised a record deal. With the help of Aucoin, KISS becomes the first act signed to Bogart’s new label, Casablanca Records.

 

 

 

 

RayParkerJrGhostbusters7InchSingleCoverOn August 11, 1984, Ray Parker JR. started a three week run at #1 on the US singles chart with the theme from the film ‘Ghostbusters’. It was nominated at the Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song, but lost to Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You.” Parker who had been a session guitarist for Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye was accused of plagiarizing the melody from Huey Lewis and the News song “I Want a New Drug,” resulting in Lewis suing Parker, the pair settled out of court in 1985.

 

 

 

 

 
LedZeppelin1971Promo_fullpageOn August 12, 1968, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham played together for the first time when they rehearsed in a small basement room on Gerrard Street just south of London’s Soho district. The first song they played was a version of “Train Kept A-Rollin’.” They also played “Smokestack Lightning” and a version of “I’m Confused” (soon to become “Dazed And Confused”). The first live dates they played were as the Yardbirds, and it was not until the following month when they started to use the name Led Zeppelin.

 

 

 

CheapthrillsOn August 12, 1968, Big Brother and the Holding Company (with Janis Joplin as primary lead vocalist) released the legendary album ‘Cheap Thrills.’ It reached #1 on the Billboard charts in its eighth week in October. It kept the #1 spot for eight (nonconsecutive) weeks while the single, “Piece of My Heart” also became a huge hit. By the end of the year it was the most successful album of 1968, having sold nearly a million copies. The cover was drawn by cartoonist R. Crumb (the band’s original cover idea, a picture of the group naked in bed together, was dropped by the record company). Crumb had originally intended his art for the LP back cover, with a portrait of Joplin on the front. But Joplin, an avid fan of underground comics, and especially the work of Crumb, so loved the Cheap Thrills illustration that she demanded Columbia Records place it on the front cover. It is #9 on Rolling Stone’s list of one hundred greatest album covers.

 

Woodstock_'94_posterOn August 12, 1994, Woodstock ’94 opened in Saugerties, New York on the 25th anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair.

supremes_Baby_loveOn August 13, 1964, in Studio A at Hitsville U.S.A. in Detroit, the Supremes recorded “Baby Love.” Considered one of the most popular songs of the late 20th century, “Baby Love” was ranked #324 on the Rolling Stone list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was also the second of five Supremes songs in a row to go to number-one in the United States, reaching the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 on October 31, 1964, and staying there for four weeks

 

 

 

250px-Jefferson_Airplane_early_1966On August 13, 1965, Jefferson Airplane made their live debut at San Francisco’s Matrix Club. In the audience that night was future Jefferson Airplane/Starship member Grace Slick.The photograph of the members of Jefferson Airplane that was featured on the front cover of their best-known album, ‘Surrealistic Pillow’ (1967), was taken inside the Matrix.

 

 

 

American_Woman45On August 13, 1969, at the RCA studios in Chicago, the Guess Who recorded “American Woman.” The song originated from their live jam at a curling rink concert in Kitchener, Ontario, with lead singer Burton Cummings improvising lyrics to fit the music. Shortly after its release, the Guess Who were invited to play at the White House. Because of its supposed anti-American lyrics, Pat Nixon asked that they not play “American Woman.” The song is noted for its memorable anti-American line. “I don’t want your war machines/I don’t need your ghetto scenes.” The song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

 

 

 

 
220px-The_McCoysOn August 14, 1965, the McCoys’ “Hang On Sloopy” was released. It will enter the Hot 100 three weeks later and top the chart by the first week of October. It was written by Wes Farrell and Bert Russell, originally titled “My Girl Sloopy.” It was named for singer Dorothy Sloop, who used the name “Sloopy” on stage. It was first recorded by the Vibrations in 1964, for Atlantic Records (45-2222), becoming a top-30 hit.

 

 

 

MaggiereasonOn August 14, 1971, Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May” was released in the US, where it will reach #1 and become his first Billboard chart hit. It was initially released as the B-side of the single “Reason to Believe,” but DJs in the USA (possibly in Cleveland, Ohio) became fonder of the B-side and the song was reclassified, with “Maggie May” becoming the A-side. Stewart would later remark: “I cannot see how the single is such a hit. It has no melody.” In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the song #130 on their list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

 

 

 

Rock_n_MeOn August 14, 1976, Steve Miller released “Rock ‘N Me,” one of his three hit singles not credited to the Steve Miller Band. The song was released as the second single from the group’s ninth studio album ‘Fly Like an Eagle’ in 1976. The North American release of the single was credited to Steve Miller, while the European release was credited as Steve Miller Band. The song was the band’s second #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it stayed at the top for 1 week.

 

 

 

 

 

220px-Raccoon_climbing_in_tree_-_Cropped_and_color_correctedOn August 15, 1968, at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London, the Beatles recorded the Paul McCartney composition “Rocky Raccoon,” the last Beatles song to feature John Lennon playing harmonica. Producer George Martin played the honky-tonk piano. In Mojo magazine in October, 2008, McCartney acknowledged that the style of the song is a pastiche, saying, “I was basically spoofing the folksinger.” Lennon attributed the song to Paul, saying “Couldn’t you guess? Would I have gone to all that trouble about Gideon’s Bible and all that stuff?” Paul McCartney was inspired while playing acoustic guitar with John Lennon and Donovan in India (where the Beatles had gone on a retreat).

 

 

 

woodstockOn August 15, 1969, Woodstock Festival was held on Max Yasgur’s 600 acre farm in Bethel outside New York. The event was scheduled: August 15–17, 1969. Attended by over 400,000 people, it featured the music of, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Santana, the Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, the Band, Canned Heat, Joan Baez, Melanie, Ten Years After, Sly and the Family Stone, Johnny Winter, Jefferson Airplane, Ravi Shanker, Country Joe and the Fish, Blood Sweat and Tears, Arlo Guthrie, and Joe Cocker. During the three days there were three deaths, two births and four miscarriages. Joni Mitchell was booked to appear but had to pull out due to being booked for a TV show, wrote the song “Woodstock.”

 

 

 

 
elvisPresleyAlohafromHawaiiOn August 16, 1977, at his Graceland home in Memphis, Elvis Presley took the book he’d been reading, Frank Adams’ “The Scientific Search For The Face Of Jesus,” and went into his bathroom.

“Don’t fall asleep in there,” said girlfriend Ginger Alden, knowing he had a habit of nodding off.

“Okay, I won’t,” he said. Ginger went back to sleep.

At 1:30 p.m. CST, Ginger awoke and saw Elvis was still gone. When knocking on the bathroom door produced no reply, she entered and found his lifeless body on the floor in front of the toilet.

Alden called for Elvis associates Joe Esposito and Al Strada, who arrived and called the fire department. An ambulance was dispatched. Daughter Lisa Marie and father Vernon arrived in the bathroom, but Lisa Marie was quickly removed. Elvis was rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital, where, after several attempts to revive him, he died at 3:30 p.m. CST.

His autopsy was performed at 7:00 p.m. The official coroner’s report listed “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death, but this was later admitted to be a ruse by the Presley family with the help of autopsy physicians to cover up the real cause of death: a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken together in doses no doctor would ever prescribe.

The phrase “cardiac arrhythmia,” in the context of the coroner’s report, means little more than a stopped heart; the report initially tried to attribute the arrhythmia to cardiovascular disease, but Elvis’ own personal physician has stated that Presley had no such chronic problems at the time. Most of Elvis’ many health problems can and have been traced back to rampant abuse of prescription drugs.

The painkillers Morphine and Demerol. Chloropheniramine, an antihistamine. The tranquilizers Placidyl and Vailum. Finally, four drugs were found in “significant” quantities: Codeine, an opiate, Ethinamate, largely prescribed at the time as a “sleeping pill,” Quaaludes, and a barbituate, or depressant, that has never been identified. It has also been rumored that Diazepam, Amytal, Nembutal, Carbrital, Sinutab, Elavil, Avental, and Valmid were found in his system at death.

The phrase “cardiac arrhythmia,” in the context of the coroner’s report, means little more than a stopped heart; the report initially tried to attribute the arrhythmia to cardiovascular disease, but Elvis’ own personal physician has stated that Presley had no such chronic problems at the time.

He left an estate valued at 4.9 million dollars, which by 1993 had grown to between 50 and 100 million.

 

200px-Everly_Brothers_-_CroppedOn August 16, 1957, at RCA’s McGavock Street studios in Nashville, the Everly Brothers recorded “Wake Up Little Susie.” The song reached #1 on the Billboard Pop chart and the Cash Box Best Selling Records chart, despite having been banned from Boston radio stations for lyrics that, at the time, were considered “suggestive.” It was ranked at #311 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

 

 

 

 

last_Train_to_Clarksville_coverOn August 16, 1966, the Monkees released their first single, “Last Train to Clarksville.” The song refers to Clarksville, Tennessee, which is in close proximity to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the home of the 101st Airborne Division which flew numerous missions over Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 on November 5, 1966.

 

 

 

 

ramonesOn August 16, 1974, the Ramones made their live debut at CBGB in New York. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the US and, perhaps to a greater extent, in the UK.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the-beatles-353x-353xOn August 17, 1960, in Hamburg, Germany, the Beatles began the first of 48 nights performing at the Indra Club, on stage for 4½ hours on weekdays, 6 hours on weekends. The arrangement led to 20-minute versions of songs like “Long Tall Sally.” The club owner, Bruno Koschmider, told the Beatles to “mach shau,” or really put on a show, which led to the band screaming, shouting, and leaping about the stage and sometimes playing while lying on the floor. John Lennon often yelled at the German audiences, called them Nazis, shouted “Sieg Heil!” at them, and wore outlandish outfits. One time he appeared on stage in only his underwear, and another time he had a toilet seat around his neck. The young crowd loved it. The Beatles eventually broke their contract and moved to the Top Ten Club. Koschmider exacted his revenge by getting George Harrison deported for being too young to play in bars, and Paul and Pete Best deported for starting a fire in the tiny room the group shared behind a screen in a local movie house.

 

 

jimihendrix-x600-1405632252On August 17, 1969, on the final day of the three-day Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York, there were performances by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Ten Years After, John Sebastian, Sha Na Na, Joe Cocker, Country Joe and the Fish, the Band, Ten Years After, Johnny Winter and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

 

 

 

 

nnnnnnnnnnnOn August 17, 1991, Nirvana shot the video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at GMT Studios in Culver City, California, costing less than $50,000 to make, the shoot features real Nirvana fans as the audience. The video won Nirvana the Best New Artist and Best Alternative Group awards at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, and in 2000 the Guinness World Records named ‘Teen Spirit’ the Most Played Video on MTV Europe.

The guitar that Eric Clapton used during these sessions was a sunburst 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard with two PAF Humbucking pickups. The album consists of blues standards by long-established artists such as Otis Rush, Freddie King and Robert Johnson, as well as a few originals penned by Mayall and Clapton.

He struck a similar pose in the photo on the back of the original sleeve. In 2004, it was #37 of the top 100 albums of the 1970′s by Pitchfork which reported the album to be “held by many as the most impressive debut in pop music history.”

On hearing the news that Dewey was going to play his record, Presley went to the local movie theater to calm his nerves. Phillips played the song just after 9.30 that evening, the phone lines lit up asking the DJ to play the song again. “That’s All Right” was officially released on July 19, 1954.

deep_purple_boxset_ovseMade In Japan (Deluxe Vinyl) by Deep Purple

Together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple have been referred to as the “unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal” in the early to mid-Seventies. One of the most influential and important guitar bands in history, they have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

“Made In Japan” was recorded live over three nights during 15–17 August 1972 at Festival Hall, Osaka and Budokan, Tokyo. Four of the tracks come from the band’s 1972 “Machine Head” album. It featured what many consider the classic Deep Purple lineup – Ian Gillan (Vocals), Ritchie Blackmore (Guitars), Roger Glover (Bass), Jon Lord (Organ) and Ian Paice (Drums). Originally recorded only for the Japanese market, the album has since become seen as one of Deep Purple’s seminal albums, and one of the greatest live albums of all time (A Rolling Stone magazine readers poll in 2012 voted “Made In Japan” as the sixth greatest live album of all time).
