1971: "Brown Sugar", The Rolling Stones' first release on their own label, became their sixth US number one single. Speculation on the meaning of the title has ranged from a sexist racial slur to Mexican heroin.
1966: "River Deep, Mountain High" by Ike and Tina Turner is released. The record will stay on the chart for just four weeks and stall at #88. Producer Phil Spector considered the song the high point of his production career and was so disappointed by its poor performance that he would go into seclusion for two years.
