GREAT RECORD RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1957

See the source image

Jerry Lee Lewis was not the only early rock-and-roller from a
strict Christian background who struggled to reconcile his
religious beliefs with the moral implications of the music he
created. He may have been the only one to have one of his
religious crises caught on tape, however—in between takes
on one of his legendary hit songs. It was on October 8, 1957,
that bible-school dropout Jerry Lee Lewis laid down the
definitive version of “Great Balls Of Fire,” amidst a losing
battle with his conscience and with the legendary Sam
Phillips, head of Sun Records.

SONG ORIGINALLY RECORDED ON THIS DAY

 See the source image Willie Mae Thornton (December 11, 1926 – July 25, 1984 

    
   

   

Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog” (1956) is one of the biggest and
most instantly recognizable pop songs in history. It’s a song
so closely associated with the King of Rock and Roll, in fact,
that many may mistakenly assume that it was a Presley original.
In fact, the story of the song that gave Elvis his longest-running
#1 hit (11 weeks) in the summer of 1956 began four years earlier,
when “Hound Dog” was recorded for the very first time by the
rhythm-and-blues singer Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton in
Los Angeles, California. According to Maureen Mahon, a music
professor at
New York University,"the song is seen as an
important beginning of rock-and-roll, especially in its use of
the guitar as the key instrument".

Thornton was found dead at age 57 by medical personnel in a
Los Angeles boarding house on July 25, 1984. She died of heart
and liver disorders due to her longstanding alcohol abuse.

The Bob Dylan’s "Like a Rolling Stone" was recorded as
part of the sessions for the forthcoming album Highway
61 Revisited
. The song reached No. 2 in the Billboard
charts (No. 1 in Cashbox) and became a worldwide hit.

Critics have described the song as revolutionary in its
combination of different musical elements, the youthful,
cynical sound of Dylan’s voice, and the directness of the
question "How does it feel?" "Like a Rolling Stone"
completed the transformation of Dylan’s image from
folk singer to rock star, and is considered one of the
most influential compositions in postwar popular music.
(Wikipedia)

At an auction in 2014, Dylan’s handwritten lyrics to the
song fetched $2 million, a world record for a popular
music manuscript.
