“The Beatles Story” - Today at 3pm CST – on Deltamusic

The Beatles' Story is the sixth album by the Beatles in the United States, issued on November 23, 1964 by Capitol Records in both mono and stereo formats (although the mono was merely a fold-down of the stereo mix). It is a documentary double album featuring interviews, press conferences, and song snippets with voice-overs, and was issued in response to interviews of the Beatles collected on the Vee-Jay Records

"A Beatles Tribute Weekend" - Starting at 7:30 PM CST on Deltamusic Handpicked Live

It Was Fifty Years Ago Today - The Day Beatlemania Went Stateside


"They say the world doesn't change in a day.”

“But one day, it did."

Today marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' US debut. On this date in 1964, The Beatles flew together across the Atlantic for the first time, in hopes of cracking the USA - something no British band had yet managed to do. By the time the third and last of their first Beatles Ed Sullivan broadcasts aired - a little more than two weeks after their arrival - the band would be back home, having made broadcasting history and their trip as a whole a phenomenal and unprecedented success. 

To commemorate The Beatles' seminal first US visit, from now until 23rd February The Beatles Homepage  will be posting on Facebook each day about the significant events that led to Beatlemania spreading across the States. Check-in daily for photos and video from the tour, and the story of how The Beatles managed to accomplish what then had seemed impossible to do - making it in the USA. Today, we've posted some original news footage covering their arrival, and yesterday we posted the backstory behind their visit. Check back tomorrow to read about their second day in New York City and the Ed Sullivan rehearsals they had to do without George - who had came down with flu the night before: https://www.facebook.com/thebeatles

You can also take a tour through the bands' whole 1964 journey from obscurity to record-breaking success in the USA via our commemorative website. There, you can get the inside story of each major event from the visit. We've uploaded photos and original film footage, too, and will be uploading more throughout the next couple of weeks: usalbums.thebeatles.com

Elvis Presley - ‘The Stax Sessions’ 1973 - Handpicked

Deltamusic features Elvis in the studio Handpicked



When Elvis entered the Soulsville, USA studios, Stax was riding high thanks to Isaac Hayes’ “Theme from Shaft”. The July 1973 sessions don’t reveal the turmoil that plagued them.  The singer’s team was frustrated by the limitations of Stax’s 8-track recording console at a period when other studios had already switched to 16-track.  In addition, Stax didn’t boast much in the way of an isolation area, and the in-studio headsets all shared the same mix, making it difficult for the crack musicians to hear themselves.  Still, Elvis soldiered on with his band – James Burton and Ronnie Tutt from the road, plus many of the American Sound players and a full complement of nine background vocalists – through the evening of July 23, scheduled to be the last.  Elvis had nailed his vocals, and agreed to return the following night.  On July 24, Burton, Tutt, Reggie Young and Tommy Cogbill couldn’t make it, so they were replaced by Stax’s housclip_image005e band members Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass) and Al Jackson, Jr. (drums) plus Bobby Manuel, a protégé of Steve Cropper’s, and Johnny Christopher on guitars.  This would prove the only time during the Stax sessions that the label’s personnel played key roles.  After eleven takes of Les Reed and Barry Mason’s “Girl of Mine,” Elvis realized that his personal microphone had been stclip_image009olen during the day.  He departed, not to return.


Elvis didn’t return to McLemore Avenue until December.  When he re-entered the Stax studio, it was with RCA’s 16-track mobile unit and a new band anchored, again, by Burton and Tutt.  Norbert Putnam and David Briggs of Muscle Shoals were also part of this new line-up.  Again, the material chosen was from a variety of sources.

Recording between December 10 and 16, Elvis drew on the catalogues of singer-songwriters from the folk (Tom Jans, Danny O’Keefe) and country (Jerry Reed, Larry Gatlin, Waylon Jennings) worlds.  Dennis Linde, of “Burning Love” fame, returned to the fold.  A Chuck Berry tune took a spot alongside some big European numbers, and Elvis even tapped the songbook of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant of “Bye Bye Love” and “Love Hurts” fame.
