June 2nd

"Sgt. Pepper" is released in the United States.  It changes the way albums are made and perceived forever.   David Bowie also releases his first album on this date (titled "David Bowie") … it goes absolutely nowhere!  

Brand new debuts on the chart this week include "The Tracks Of My Tears" by Johnny Rivers, which premiers at #57, "Don't Sleep In The Subway" by Petula Clark, new on the charts at #67, "Up Up And Away" by The Fifth Dimension (#72), "Pay You Back With Interest" by The Hollies (#79) and "Light My Fire" by The Doors (#90).  (Can you even imagine a single week when ALL these '60's classics premiered on the chart at the exact same time?!?!  BEST MUSIC EVER!!!)
