AC/DC was hot this week back in 1981, following up 1980's record breaking "Back in Black" their album “For Those About To Rock, We Salute You” came out and become the bands first #1 album selling an estimated seven million copies worldwide.
This week in 1984, the song "Do They Know It's Christmas" was the #1 single in England on its way to the same position in the U.S.A. The tune was done by Band Aid, which was a band of musicians put together by Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof to raise money to feed the hungry in Ethiopia.
The Velvet Underground will release a three-disc 45th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of their landmark 1968 album 'White Light / White Heat' tomorrow. Included in the set is a live disc recorded at a 1967 show. You can hear the seven-minute rarity 'I'm Not a Young Man Anymore' above.
Unlike Bob Dylan's similarly themed 'Bootleg Series,' the various volumes in Neil Young's 'Archives' haven't stretched out much. Aside from 2009's massive early-career box set and a couple of later concert documents, the albums in Young's ongoing series mostly have been live shows from the first few years of his solo period.
Don Henley and his solo career would kick in big-time today in 1984, with the release of his album "Building The Perfect Beast". It would top out at #13 on the charts and over 3 million copies would be sold.
On this day in 1969 , Crosby, Stills & Nash's self-titled debut album made up to #6 on the music charts. The album was well accepted by rock lover’s nationwide selling four million copies in four months. David Crosby came from The Byrds, Stephen Stills from Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash from The Hollies.
As everyone was trying to one-up each other in the later part of the '60s -- hoping to keep up with 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and what it spawned -- Pete Townshend looked forward by looking back. While his contemporaries had psychedelic visions spiraling within their heads, the main songwriter and guitarist for the Who had something else in mind for his band.
