This Week In Music History – June 9 -15

Some_GirlsOn June 9, 1978, ‘Some Girls‘ was released by the Rolling Stones. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, and became one of the band’s biggest-selling albums in the US, and has been certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000. The album cover for was designed by Peter Corriston, with illustrations by Hubert Kretzschmar. An elaborate die-cut design, with colors varying on different sleeves, it featured band in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. The cover immediately ran into trouble when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli (representing her mother Judy Garland), Raquel Welch, and the estate of Marilyn Monroe threatened legal action. The album was quickly reissued with a revised cover that removed all the celebrities whether they had complained or not, and were replaced with black and punk style garish colors with the phrase PARDON OUR APPEARANCE – COVER UNDER RE-CONSTRUCTION (found on most reissues since).

 

220px-InvisibleTouch86On June 9, 1986 the album ‘Invisible Touch’ was released by Genesis. It reached #1 in the UK where it remained in the charts for 96 weeks, making it by far the most commercially successful album of their career, certified 6x platinum in the US and 4x platinum in the UK; eventually selling over 15 million copies worldwide. It received generally favorable reviews from critics and produced five US Top 5 singles, including the title track which reached the #1 spot on the US chart, the only song by Genesis to do so.

 

 

 

 
Janis_Lyn_JoplinOn June 10, 1966, Big Brother & the Holding Company made their first live appearance in San Francisco at the Avalon with new lead singer Janis Joplin.

 

 

 

 

 
The_Eagles_-_One_of_These_NightsOn June 10, 1975, the Eagles released their fourth studio album, ‘One Of These Nights.’ The album released three Top 10 singles, “One of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Take It To The Limit.” Those singles reached #1, #2, and #4 respectively. The album became the band’s first album to top the charts. The album sold 4 million copies and won the band its first Grammy for “Lyin’ Eyes.” The album was the band’s breakthrough album, transforming them to international superstars.

 

 

 
220px-R_E_M__-_Fables_of_the_ReconstructionOn June 10, 1985, R.E.M. released ‘Fables of the Reconstruction.’ The LP reached #28 in the US (going gold in 1991) and was the band’s best showing yet in the UK, peaking at #35. Peter Buck, in the liner notes of the 25th Anniversary Deluxe edition, said, “Over the years, a certain misapprehension about Fables of the Reconstruction has built up. For some reason, people have the impression that the members of R.E.M. don’t like the record. Nothing could be further from the truth. [...] It’s a personal favorite, and I’m really proud of how strange it is. Nobody but R.E.M. could have made that record.”

 

 

 

 

elvisTeddyOn June 11, 1957, Elvis Presley released the single “Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear” b/w “Loving You.” The song was a US number-one hit for Elvis Presley during the summer of 1957, staying at #1 for 7 weeks, and his third of the four that he would have that year. “(Let Me be Your) Teddy Bear” would also hit number one on the R&B Best Sellers List, becoming his fourth number one on that chart.

 

 

 
Manfred_mann_do_wah_diddy_diddyOn June 11, 1964, Manfred Mann recorded “Do Wah Diddy Diddy.” The now legendary cut (and bar band and wedding band staple) was released on July 10 and spent two weeks #1 in the UK Singles Chart in August and two weeks at the #1 spot in the US Billboard Hot 100 in October.

Surfer_Girl_coverOn June 12, 1963, at Western Studios in Los Angeles, the Beach Boys recorded “Little Deuce Coupe” and “Surfer Girl.” The latter, was written solely by Brian Wilson, the song is his very first composition. Although the song is sometimes referred to as a tribute to his then girlfriend Judy Bowles, this is untrue as the song wasn’t written with anyone particular in mind. It was the first Beach Boys recording session where Brian Wilson served as the official producer.

 

 

 
MariahCarey-MCcoverOn June 12, 1990, Mariah Carey released her self-titled debut album. Five singles were released from the album, four of which became number-one hits on the Hot 100.

Proceeds go to Amnesty International’s initiative against the Darfur genocide.

 

 

 

 
Frank_Sinatra_laughingOn June 13, 1971, Frank Sinatra performed his “retirement” concert at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles, a benefit performance marking the 50th anniversary of the Motion Picture And Television Relief Fund. His 11-song set ended with the song “Angel Eyes” and its last line, “‘S’cuse me … while I … disappear,” after which the spotlight that had been reduced to illuminate only his face was extinguished. Sinatra returned a year and a half later with the legendary comeback album “Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back.”

 

 

 
candy-O_-_The_CarsOn June 13, 1979, ‘Candy-O‘ by the Cars was released. The album cover was painted by artist Alberto Vargas, known for his paintings of pin-up girls that appeared in Esquire and Playboy magazines in the 1940s and 1960s. The idea to hire Vargas came from drummer David Robinson, the band’s artistic director and a collector of pin-ups. The 83-year-old Vargas had retired several years earlier but was persuaded to take the assignment by his niece, who was a fan of the Cars. The painting, depicting a girl sprawled across the hood of a car, was based on a photo shoot directed by Robinson at a Ferrari dealership.

 

 

 

alanis_Morissette_-_Jagged_Little_PillOn June 13, 1995, Alanis Morissette released the album ‘Jagged Little Pill.’ It became a commercial and critical success, selling over 33 million copies worldwide.

220px-In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

On June 14, 1968, the legendary LP ‘In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida’ by Iron Butterfly was released. It peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts and was given the distinction of being the first album to be awarded platinum status when the RIAA began that achievement level in 1976. Today it is a 4x platinum album with sales of over 30 million copies. It was also Atlantic Records’ biggest selling album until it was surpassed by Led Zeppelin IV.

 

 

 
On June220px-Grateful_Dead_-_Workingman's_Dead 14, 1970, the Grateful Dead released the LP ‘Workingman’s Dead.’ The title of the album comes from a comment from Jerry Garcia to lyricist Robert Hunter about how “this album was turning into the Workingman’s Dead version of the band.” In 2003, the album was ranked #262 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

LikeaRollingStoneOn June 15, 1965, in New York, Bob Dylan began a two-day recording session that produced his classic “Like A Rolling Stone.” The fourth of 15 takes on the second day was the version released as the single. The track has been described as revolutionary in its combination of different musical elements, the youthful, cynical sound of Dylan’s voice, and the directness of the question in the chorus: “How does it feel?”. The cut transformed Dylan’s career and is today considered one of the most influential compositions in post-war popular music. The song has been covered by numerous artists, varying from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Rolling Stones, The Wailers to Green Day. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine placed “Like a Rolling Stone” at the top of their list of “500 Greatest Songs Of All Time.” In 2006, Pitchfork Media placed it at number 4 on their list of “The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s”.

 

 

220px-Bob_Dylan_-_Street-LegalOn June 15, 1978, ‘Street Legal’ by Bob Dylan was released. It was another gold record for Dylan, but it peaked at only #11 on the US Billboard charts, making it his first studio album to miss the US Top 10 since 1964.

 

 

 

 
220px-Nirvana-BleachOn June 15, 1989, Nirvana‘s debut album ‘Bleach‘ was released in the US. The title for the album came from a poster ‘Bleach Your Works’ urging drug users to bleach their needles. Kurt Cobain claimed that most of the lyrics on the album were written the night before recording while he was feeling “pissed off,” and that he did not regard them highly. The album cover was photographed by Cobain’s then-girlfriend Tracy Marander during a concert at the Reko Muse art gallery in Olympia, Washington.
