Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for July 16th

Today you take a look at a classic and totally iconic logo; you got the birth of the best of the ’60’s “supergroups”; and pair of Beatle tracks get worked on (both by George!)…

His Master's Voice

7/16/1900 (115 years ago today)It’s a real-bona-fide piece of American history: The logo of the Victor Recording Company and later RCA Victor, “His Master’s Voice”, was officially registered with the U.S. Patent Office. You know it — the logo shows the dog, Nipper, looking into the horn of a gramophone. Still one of the best record label designs ever…

7/16/1966 (49 years ago today) – Considering their depth of influence, it’s hard to believe they were really together for only a couple of years: Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton formally announce their new project, the psychedelic-blues-and-progressive-rock trio known as Cream. They release only three proper full-length studio LPs that, to this day, still manage to blow away the competition. Truly the definition of amazing

7/16/1969 (46 years ago today)Abbey Road studio’s, London: The Beatles are working on two George Harrison compositions. One is a heart-felt, deep ballad titled “Something”. The other track is more upbeat, written by George when he took some time off from Apple Records business and spent the day walking around the garden at Eric Clapton‘s house. The song is likely to be called “Here Comes The Sun”quite a remarkable afternoon for recording some new music doncha think?

Thoughts, suggestions, monetary donations, etc…if you got something to offer the Calendar, then go for it right here on our web site and/or the WBLM Facebook and Twitter pages with the hashtag #TommysCoffeeBreak.

“She’s some kind of demon messing in the glue/If you don’t watch out/It’ll stick to you…”, xoxo!
