This Week in Music History

The Beatles – Photo by John Pratt

November 2nd, 1967The Beatles completed recording ‘Hello Goodbye’ at Abbey Road by adding a second Paul McCartney bass line. The song had been selected for the A-side of The Beatles next single, the flip side to be John Lennon’s ‘I Am the Walrus.’

November 3rd, 1972 Carly Simon and James Taylor tie the knot today. The were introduced to each other a year ago after one of her shows at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

November 4th, 1984Prince kicks off the first night of a week-long stay at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. It’s the start of his 87-date North American Purple Rain tour, and marked the debut of his new band The Revolution.

November 5th, 1995Queen releases their first studio album since the death of Freddie Mercury, titled ‘Made In Heaven.’ It included Freddy’s last recorded vocal track from a song titled ‘Mother Love.’ Mercury passed away on November 24th in 1991 from AIDS.

November 6th, 1968The Monkees‘ feature film, ‘Head’ opens in New York City. The film had a dark theme, graphic scenes of the Vietnam War, and was about the manipulation of the group. Obviously not aimed at their existing audience of fun loving, teenyboppers.  Critics gave terrible reviews and the film was a flop.

November 7th, 1951Frank Sinatra marries his second wife, actress Ava Gardner, but it’s a bit short lived. The couple would split up in 1953 and divorce in 1957. Sinatra was married three other times, to Nancy Barbato, to actress Mia Farrow, and finally to Barbara Marx.

November 8th, 1975David Bowie makes his US TV debut performing his hit ‘Fame’, on Cher’s CBS-TV show.
