6/19/1965 (52 years ago today)The Four Tops hit No. 1 with the brilliantly infectious single “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)”Hard to believe, but: lead singer Levi Stubbs was not very happy with the way it sounded and was promised another recording session scheduled for the next day so he could do it all over — That session never took place, and the track that became a hit was, in fact, just the second take of the song!!! We have a winner!!!

6/19/1971 (46 years ago today)Carole King kicks off a five-week run at No. 1 on the singles chart with “It’s Too Late”/“I Feel The Earth Move”, both off her super-nova “Tapestry” LP which went on to become one of the best-selling albums in entertainment history (25 million sold worldwide, 10 million in the U.S. alone!) with Rolling Stone ranking it No. 36 on their “500 Greatest Albums Of All Time” — One of those records you find in everybody’s home, no matter where you live or what you did for work, we all had a copy of “Tapestry”, that’s just the way it was. Remarkable really…

6/19/2015 (2 years ago today)Remembering those who also served…: Blues musician Wendell Holmes passed away on this date at age 71 — Now if you’re wondering “Who?”, get ready: He was part of The Holmes Brothers, a family band that included siblings Sherman (bass) and Willie (drums), and they released 12 albums of their own during a career that found them backing up and recording with a jaw-dropping list of luminaries like Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Roseanne Cash, Odetta, Joan Osbourne, Levon Helm, Willie Nelson and many more. Now that you know, give ’em a listen, it’s rather refreshing stuff…
