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.
1994: The Eagles reunite at a Burbank, California concert, ending a fourteen year break-up. The two-and-a-half-hour show ended with two encores capped by "Desperado".
1963: Elvis Presley records "(You're The) Devil In Disguise", which will peak at #3 on the Billboard chart and #1 in the UK by next August and be certified Gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 units in the US.
