This Week In Music History – September 15 – September 21

 

The_4_Seasons_(1966)On September 15, 1962, the Four Seasons scored their first #1 hit when “Sherry” reached the top of both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cashbox Best Sellers list. The song was originally titled “Terry,” but after considering other names, including “Jackie,” (named for Jackie Kennedy) the quartet changed the lyrics to “Sherry;” after Cheri Spector, the daughter of one of Bob Crewe’s best friends. Over their career the Four Seasons would have 3 more #1 hits: “Rag Doll,” “Walk Like a Man” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.”

 

 

 

1978_AMC_Matador_sedan_red_NC_detail_of_factory_AM-FM-stereo-8-track_unitOn September 15, 1965, the Ford Motor Company became the first automaker to offer an 8-track tape player as an option for their entire line of vehicles on sale in the US. Tapes were initially only available at auto parts stores, as home 8-track equipment was still a year away.

 

 

 

 

Huey_Lewis_&_the_News_-_SportsOn September 15, 1983, Huey Lewis and the News released the album ‘Sports.’ The album spawned four top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Heart and Soul,” “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll” and “If This Is It.” The LP reached the top spot on the Billboard 200 on June 30, 1984, and has been certified 7× Platinum by the RIAA.

 

 

 

 

 

 
220px-Beatles_She_Loves_YouOn September 16, 1963, “She Loves You” by the Beatles was released by Swan Records in the US. Although the song was currently at the top position in the UK, the now legendary pop song was ignored in the US, that is, until 1964 – when it would reach the top of the US Pop chart.

 

 

 

 

220px-SurferGirlCoverOn September 16, 1963, the Beach Boys album ‘Surfer Girl’ was released. The LP reached #7 in the US during a chart stay of 56 weeks. The front cover of Surfer Girl features (from left to right) Dennis Wilson, David Marks, Carl Wilson, Mike Love and Brian Wilson holding a surfboard from the same 1962 photo shoot that produced the cover of their album debut ‘Surfin’ Safari.’

 

 

 

 

ShindiglogoOn September 16, 1964, the rock and roll show Shindig debuts on ABC-TV with the Righteous Brothers, Sam Cooke, the Everly Brothers and Bobby Sherman. Later shows were taped in Britain with the Beatles as the guests and many popular performers of the day played on the show including Lesley Gore, Bo Diddley, Sonny and Cher, the Beach Boys, James Brown, the Supremes and the Ronettes; to name a few.

 

 

 

 

Vynil_vinil_92837841On September 17, 1931, RCA-Victor demonstrated the first long-playing record or LP, (33 1/3 rpm recording) at the Savoy Plaza Hotel in New York. The venture was doomed to fail however due to the high price of the record players, which started around $95 (about $1140 in today’s dollars) and wasn’t revived until 1948.

 

 

 

 

doorsOn September 17, 1967, the Doors were banned from the Ed Sullivan Show after Jim Morrison broke his agreement with the show’s producers. Morrison said before the performance that he wouldn’t sing the words, “Girl, we couldn’t get much higher,” from their hit 60′s anthem “Light My Fire;” but he did anyway. The Doors also performed their new single “People Are Strange.”

 

 

 

220px-Roger_Daltrey_-left_and_Keith_Moon-right_1967On September 17, 1967, the Who appeared on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. An incident occurred with flash explosions that damaged Pete Townsend’s ears. Drummer Kieth Moon bribed a stage hand to put explosives in his drum kit, loading it with ten times the expected dose. The resulting detonation threw Moon off his drum riser while his arm was cut by flying cymbal shrapnel. Townshend’s hair was fried and his left ear left ringing, while a camera and studio monitor were destroyed by a blast.

 

 

 

220px-GnR--UseYourIllusion1On September 17, 1991, over 4 million copies of Guns N’ Roses album, ‘Use Your Illusion I’ and ‘Use Your Illusion II’ were simultaneously released for retail sale. The cover art of both ‘Use Your Illusion’ albums is a detail of Raphael’s painting The School of Athens. The highlighted figure, unlike many of those in the painting, has not been identified with any particular philosopher. Both covers are the work of Estonian-American artist Mark Kostabi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gitarrlegenden Jimi HendrixOn September 18, 1970, James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary Abbot’s Hospital in London at the age of 27 from an overdose of sleeping pills. Hendrix left the message “I need help bad man,” on his managers answer phone earlier that night. Hendrix is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music,and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.”

 

 

 

 

 

220px-Lick_it_up_coverOn September 18, 1983, the album ‘Lick It Up’ was released by KISS. On the day of its release, the band members appeared on MTV without their trademark makeup. It was the first public appearance without makeup by Kiss since their very early days. The title track is a fan favorite Kiss song and a staple of the band’s live performances. This is also the first Kiss album officially featuring new lead guitarist Vinnie Vincent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

220px-SgconcertincentralparkOn September 19, 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel recorded “The Concert in Central Park” live in New York’s Central Park for an HBO special. Among the songs performed were the classics “The Sound of Silence,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “The Boxer.”  The accompanying album was very successful peaking at #6 on the Billboard 200 album charts.

 

 

 

 

NoNukesAlbumOn September 19, 1979, the No Nukes concert was held at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Performers included Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, the Doobie Brothers, Poco, Tom Petty, Carly Simon, James Taylor and Bruce Springsteen.

 

 

 

 

 

 
led-zep1On September 20, 1968, Led Zeppelin (recording under the name of the Yardbirds) started recording their debut album at Olympic Studios, Barnes, London, England. The album took only about 36 hours of studio time to complete at a cost of around £1,782. According to guitarist Jimmy Page, “The first album is a live album, it really is, and it’s done intentionally in that way. It’s got overdubs on it, but the original tracks are live.”

 

 

 
220px-DCalbumOn September 20, 1976, AC/DC released their third studio album ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.’ All songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. The album has been certified 6x Platinum in the US

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

220px-All_Along_the_Watchtower_single_coverOn September 21, 1968, “All Along the Watchtower” was released by Jimi Hendrix. The single reached #5 in the British charts, and #20 on the Billboard chart, and Hendrix’s recording of the song appears at #47 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.  The song also had the #5 spot on Guitar World’s 100 Greatest Guitar Solos.

 

 

 

 

220px-Radiohead_original_creep_coverOn September 21, 1992, Radiohead released “Creep” as their debut single, later appearing on their first album, ‘Pablo Honey’ (1993). During its initial release, “Creep” was not a chart success. However, upon re-release in 1993, it became a worldwide hit.
