Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for March 7th
3/7/1966 (52 years ago today) - One of the best singles ever recorded, really, in any decade!: Tina Turner positively nails it with her vocal performance on "River Deep, Mountain High", produced by notorious nut-job Phil Spector -- The record still sounds absolutely astonishing today, yet (and quite ludicrously) it only managed to go as high as No. 88 on the chart. What the-----?
3/71967 (51 years ago today) - The Beatles are putting the final overdubs on a Paul McCartney song that's planned for their next album -- The finishing touches on "Lovely Rita" include laying down the harmony vocal parts and some high-tech special effects, most notably the sound of toilet paper being blown through a haircomb...
3/7/1970 (48 years ago today) - Simon & Garfunkel's instantaneous classic LP "Bridge Over Troubled Water" begins its ten week reign at Number One on the Billboard chart; ironically, the duo had officially broken up just before the albums release! Stone cold fact: records just don't get much better than this one, all pure magic and a definitive must-have for your collection. Seriously.
