This Day In Music History: August 7th


1961 Patsy Cline reaches number one on the Billboard Country chart and number twelve on the Hot 100 with "I Fall To Pieces". It was one of the slowest ascending records in music history, taking over six months to peak from when it was first released on January 30th. Although it was a tune that Patsy initially wanted no part of, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it at #238 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004.

2011 Marshall Grant, who played bass for Johnny Cash from 1954 to 1980, passed away at the age of 83. After his time with The Man In Black, Grant managed The Statler Brothers until they retired in 2002 and later wrote an autobiography entitled I Was There When It Happened.

1981

The animated sci-fi film Heavy Metal is released. Although it shares its name with the hard-rock genre, the film isn't intended to have anything to do with music, but instead is an anthology of various stories from the comic magazine Heavy Metal. Almost as an afterthought, an all-star soundtrack is added, featuring songs by Sammy Hagar, Devo, Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Journey, and Black Sabbath, to name a few.

1960 England's Decca Records scrapped 25,000 copies of Ray Peterson's "Tell Laura I Lover Her" because they felt the song, which recounts the last thoughts of a teenager dying from a car accident, was "too tasteless and vulgar." A rival record company felt differently and recorded a cover version by a singer named Ricky Valance, which went to number one on the British chart. In the US, Peterson's version reached number seven on the Billboard Pop chart.

1964 "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals is released in America. Although the band would put 14 songs in the Top 40, this will be their only US number one. It was reported that the song was recorded in just one take and the band was actually in the studio for less than ten minutes.

1970 Canadian immigration officials turn back thousands of American fans on their way to the Strawberry Fields Rock Festival in Mosport, Ontario, on the grounds that they "failed to produce adequate monies to support themselves." 8,000 Americans made it there.
