This Week in Music History

November 9th, 1974Bachman Turner Overdrive goes to No.1 on the singles chart with ‘You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet’, the group’s only No.1 hit. Not bad for a grammatically incorrect title.

November 10th, 1973Elton John started an eight week run at No.1 on the album chart with ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’. It was Elton’s third US No.1 album and would be his best selling studio album going on to sell 15 million copies worldwide. It includes the Marilyn Monroe tribute, ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ and of course the title track.

November 11th, 1972 – It’s a tragic and strange day for The Allman Brothers. Their bass player Berry Oakley is killed when his motorcycle hits a bus at the same intersection their former band member Duane Allman died at the previous year. Oakley was just 24 years old.

November 12th, 1966The Monkees debut album starts a 13 week run at No.1 on the  album chart, and would go on to sell over 3 million copies in just three months.

November 13th, 1965The Castiles, which featured a young unknown singer by the name of Bruce Springsteen appears at The Fire House in Hazlet. The night is billed as a teenage go, go dance.

November 14th, 1975Queen plays the first of two nights at the Empire Theatre in England to kick off the first night of their 78-date ‘A Night at the Opera’ world tour.

November 15th, 1966The Doors officially sign with Elektra Records along with a deal for the band to record seven albums under this label. They also reluctantly agreed to release ‘Break On Through’ as their first single, and were forced to change the lyrics “She gets high, she gets high, she gets high”  to “She gets, she gets, she gets” in order to assure their single would get radio play.
