May 19th

Notable debuts on this week's chart include "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell (#68), "Seven Rooms Of Gloom" by The Four Tops (#77) and "Sound Of Love" by The Five Americans (#82).  The Everly Brothers make their first chart appearance in awhile as "Bowling Green" debuts at #99, followed at #100 by "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat", a rare, non-hit single by Bob Dylan.  

A pre-release party for The Beatles' new album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is held at Brian Epstein's home.  One of the photographers in attendance was a woman by the name of Linda Eastman … future wife of Paul McCartney.  (You may recall that he first met Linda just a few days earlier at a Georgie Fame concert in London.)  

The Soviet Union finally signs The Outer Space Treaty first initiated in January banning nuclear weapons.
