Narvel Felts has been the consummate survivor. His three and a half decades in the snake-pit of the music industry have produced a clutch of hits, but more surprisingly, have not soured him. He remains an eminently likeable and personable man of undeniable talent, a talent that has perhaps not always been showcased to its best advantage.

His earliest days in the music business were spent as featured vocalist with Jerry Mercer's Rhythm 7 Blues Boys. From there, he cut some sides at Sun which were unreleased at the time, and finally hit his stride with Mercury and MGM in the late 1950s. As the decade ended, he scored with ''Honey Love'' and ''Three Thousand Miles'' on Pink Records, but the early 1960s found Narvel trying to recharge his career in a rapidly changing musical climate.

After a stint in the Missouri National Guard, he returned to the music scene in 1962 with some recordings for Bob Cloud's Starlite label. At roughly the same time, Narvel renewed his acquaintance with Roland Janes, the former producer of Sun Records. They had first met in 1957 when Roland was playing with Billy Riley at the Carolyn Theater in Piggott, Arkansas – a meeting that Roland does not remember, but Felts, with typically photographic recall, does. The interceding years had been both good and bad for Janes. He had started Rita Records with Riley, and scored a major hit with Harold Dorman's ''Mountain Of Love'' before the  label dissolved. He started to build his own studio in Memphis, but then ran out of money, and moved to Poplar Bluff, Missouri where he worked with Bill Rice. It was there that he met Felts again – although his first recording deal was with Felts drummer, Matt Lucas, whom he brought back to Memphis for a custom  session at Fernwood.

By early 1962 Roland Janes had the Sonic studio operation, and the other member of Narvel Felts trio, J.W. Grubbs, came down to Memphis for a session. Narvel came along and, at the end of the session, demo's a couple of songs he had written to cut those songs, ''Lovelight Man'' and ''Larry And Joellen'', on Renay Records, a label Roland had started shortly after he had launched Sonic.

At roughly the same time, Roland entered into a loose arrangement with Texas entrepreneur Bill Hall and Sun alumnus Jack Clement, who had formed a little music publishing and recording frontier in Beaumont, Texas. Roland agreed to scout out material for them, and cut the original demo of Dickey Lee's ''She Thinks I Still Care''. Several of the more underproduced songs on the Roland sessions were originally designed as demos for Hall-Clement publishing.

AUGUST 5, 1962 SUNDAY

Monroe was found dead in the bedroom of her Brentwood home by her psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, in the early morning hours of August 5, 1962. Greenson had been called there by her housekeeper Eunice Murray, who was staying overnight and had awoken at 3:00 a.m. "sensing that something was wrong". Murray had seen light from under Monroe's bedroom door, but had not been able to get a response and found the door locked.The death was officially confirmed by Monroe's physician, Dr. Hyman Engelberg, who arrived at the house at around 3:50 a.m. At 4:25 a.m., they notified the Los Angeles Police Department

The Los Engeles County Coroners Office was assisted in their investigation by experts from the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Team. It was estimated that Monroe had died between 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., and the toxicological analysis concluded that the cause of death was acute barbiturate poisoning, as she had 8 mg of chloral hydrate and 4.5 mg of pentobarbital (Nembutal) in her blood, and a further 13 mg% of pentobarbital in her liver. Empty bottles containing these medicines were found next to her bed. The possibility of Monroe having accidentally overdosed was ruled out as the dosages found in her body were several times over the lethal limit. Her doctors and psychiatrists stated that she had been prone to "severe fears and frequent depressions" with "abrupt and unpredictable" mood changes, and had overdosed several times in the past, possibly intentionally. Due to these facts and the lack of any indication of foul play, her death was classified a probable suicide.

Monroe's unexpected death was front-page news in the United States and Europe. According to Lois Banner, "it's said that the suicide rate in Los Angeles doubled the month after she died; the circulation rate of most newspapers expanded that month", and the Chicago Tribune reported that they had received hundreds of phone calls from members of the public requesting information about her death. French artist Jean Cocteau commented that her death "should serve as a terrible lesson to all those, whose chief occupation consists of spying on and tormenting film stars", her former co-star Laurence Olivier deemed her "the complete victim of ballyhoo and sensation", and Bus Stop director Joshua Logan stated that she was "one of the most unappreciated people in the world". Her funeral, held at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetary on August 8, was private and attended by only her closest associates. It was arranged by Joe DiMaggio and her business manager Inez Melson. Hundreds of spectators crowded the streets around the cemetery. Monroe was later interred at crypt number. 24 at the Corridor of Memories.
 
Several conspirasy theories about Monroe's death have been proposed in the decades afterwards, including murder and accidental overdose. The murder speculations first gained mainstream attention with the publication of Norman Mailor's ''Marilyn: A Biography'' in 1973, and in the following years became widespread enough for the Los Angeles County District Attorney John Van de Kamp to conduct a "threshold investigation" in 1982 to see whether a criminal investigation should be opened. No evidence of foul play was found. T he actress is remembered in Faith Hill's country hit ''The Secret Of Life'', Hank Williams Jr. ''Born To Boogie'' and Keith Urban's ''John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16''.

AUGUST 9, 1962 THURSDAY

Brenda Lee recorded the pop ballad ''All Alone Am I'' at the Columbia Recording Studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

Studio session for Charlie Rich at the Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. 
AUGUST 1962

Charlie Rich had been discovered by Scotty Moore's A&R predecessor, Bill Justis, who himself had scored  in November 1957 with a gritty Top 20 instrumental titled ''Raunchy''. Justis felt Rich was a superb pianist.  He liked the demo tapes Rich brought him so much that he hired him as a session player in Sam's studio. One  day, during lunch at Taylor's cafe with Rich and Memphis Press-Scimitar reporter Edwin Howard, Justis  gave his new piano player some potent advice: ''I keep telling you, Charlie, you're never gonna make it in the  record business till you learn to play bad''.

Sam released seven Rich singles on Phillips International, including ''Just A Little Bit Sweet'' and ''School  Days'', but the records never got beyond a regional audience. When Rich signed with RCA Records in 1963,  Sam sent a telegram to the label stating that Rich still had an unfilled verbal contract with him. As a result of  Sam's letter, RCA suspended Rich's contract and Rich sued Sam in chancery court charging him with breach  of contract. The lawsuit was settled to Rich's advantage, but his rough new beginning with RCA produced  only one minor hit, ''Big Boss Man'', and it wasn't until he moved on to Smash that he got a big hit with  ''Mohair Sam''.
© - 706 UNION AVENUE SESSIONS - ©

On this session, Ray Charles influence was again palpable on ''Finally Found Out'', but it was ''Sittin' And Thinkin''' that has drawn listeners' attention over the years. It is hard to escape the poignancy of the lyrics given Rich's well documented lifestyle. Rich's final release for Sam Phillips is a curious combination. One side, ''There's Another Place I Can't Go'', was a slickly crafted, almost jazzy treatment of a broken relationship.

The sentiments were worded generally enough to appeal to teens. In fact, the tune was composed not by Rich, but by a team of New York specialists who were not about to give away the publishing rights to Sam Phillips.
 
''I Need Your Love'', was undoubtedly a Rich original. Surprisingly, it was not one of the strongest efforts and had demo written all over it. If nothing else, this side directed the lion's share of disc jockey attention to the A-side.

SUN SESSION: THURSDAY AUGUST 9, 1962
SESSION HOURS: UNKNOWN
PRODUCER - SAM PHILLIPS  AND/OR BILLY SHERRILL
RECORDING ENGINEER - JIM LOCKHART AND/OR TOM SPARKMAN

This small masterpieces was recorded in Nashville. If nothing else, ''Sittin' And Thinkin''' was as autobiographical as Charlie Rich's music ever got. This one cut so close to the bone that Charlie's wife, Margaret Ann, had difficulty listening to it when he was still alive, much less after his death. Even the strings don't blunt the impact of this track which, more than anything else issued on Sun, suggests the strong potential Charlie had for the country music market.

THE SUN SINGLES COLLECTION - VOLUME 6

''There's Another Place I Can't Go'' was Charlie Rich's only flirtation with music submitted by New York writers. Unless he was covering music by one of his heroes like Chuck Willis, Rich usually recorded his own material. Although this wasn't a weak composition by any reckoning, it didn't have 'hit record' written all over it. It seems to fall in the cracks between teen and adult music. Certainly the lyrics were within the life experience of many young adults, although Charlie's performance takes it to another realm. The finger snapping opening suggests Charlie is closer to his ''ring-a-ding-ding'' Sinatra bag than swaggering down teen-idol lane. If anything worked against the commercial pop success of this disc, it was probably the hip/jazz/bluesy feel Charlie managed to wrestle from the material. Indeed, in the hands of most pop singers, this would have been a strictly lightweight outing. In Charlie's hand, it is considerably more, although it didn't keep those cash registers ringing.

''Gentle As A Lamb'', Margaret Ann plainly recalls writing this ''darling song'' with Charlie in hopes that could pitch it to Elvis. ''At the time he was barraged with people trying to sell him songs. I don't know if he ever heard it. I didn't even remember that Charlie had recorded such a finished version for Sun, but I do know they never released it''. The truth is, this kind of teen fluff was thankfully rare in Charlie's written or recorded legacy although, in search of the elusive dollar sign, he was not above it.

LONELY WEEKEND - THE SUN YEARS 1958 – 1962

"Goodbye Mary Ann" was recorded several times by Charlie Rich and two other versions have been previously issued. This version is special for two reasons. First, it is recorded in stereo. Second, it is preceded by a fascinating exchange between Charlie and Sam Phillips, in which the label owner tries to get his reluctant artist to crank up the Presley sound a bit. That spend nearly a minute arguing over the "we..ll..ll" that begins the song. At one point, Charlie breaks off the debate and launches into the opening lines of "Whirlwind", his first single for the label. Later, he tells the incessant Mr. Phillips "Don't put me down like that or I can't hit it at all". Ultimately, Phillips gets his way and Charlie tears into one of his best unreleased Sun recordings.

STUDIO SESSION FOR JERRY LEE LEWIS
FOR SUN RECORDS 1962

SAM PHILLIPS RECORDING STUDIO
319 SEVENTH AVENUE NORTH, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE
SUN SESSION: TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 1962
SESSION HOURS: UNKNOWN
PRODUCER - SAM PHILLIPS  AND/OR BILLY SHERRILL
RECORDING ENGINEER - JIM LOCKHART AND/OR TOM SPARKMAN

"Good Golly Miss Molly" is a hit rock and roll song first recorded in 1958 by the American musician Little Richard. The song, a 12-bar blues, was written by John Marascalco and producer Robert "Bumps" Blackwell. Although it was first recorded by Little Richard, Blackwell produced another version by The Valiants, who imitated Little Richard, but sang the song even faster. Although the Valiants' version was released first, Little Richard had the hit. Like all his early hits, it quickly became a rock 'n' roll standard and has subsequently been covered by hundreds of artists. The song is ranked number 94 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
 
In the early 1960s the song became a continental hit in Latin America performed by the Mexican band Los Teen Tops, whose lead singer was teen idol Enrique Guzman, and sung in Spanish under the title, "La Plaga" ("The Plague"), which actually is a Mexican Spanish slang word referring to "the gang" (as in the "gang one hangs out with"). It was recorded in 1959, and it was the first single of the band. It's considered one of the first rock in Spanish hits.

Almost 30 years later in 1988, it became a hit again for Guzman's daughter, Alejandra (Ale) Guzman, on her debut LP Bye Mama. The British band The Swinging Blue Jeans skirted the UK Top 10 with their revival issued in early 1964 (HMV Pop 1273).
 
In 1966, the song again became a hit when Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels recorded it in a medley with "Devil with A Blue Dress On", reaching number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band would make "Detroit Medley" a staple of their concerts' encores in the 1970s and 1980s; one such performance is captured on the 1980 ''No Nukes'' album.

Creedence Clearwater Revival recorded "Miss Molly" in 1969 with slightly changed lyrics. Instead of the result of the gift of a diamond ring being "When she hugs me, her kissin' make me ting-a-ling-a-ling", John Fogerty sang, "Would you pardon me a kissin' and a ting-a-ling-a-ling?". The song was also covered by the Meat Puppets on their album Out My Way. The song was covered on The Crests' first LP album, The Crests Sing All Biggies, in 1960. The song is included on the Jerry Lee Lewis album Live at the Star Club, Hamburg, recorded in 1964. In the feature film King Ralph, John Goodman's title character played the song. The song has also been covered by The Sonics on their album Here Are The Sonics and as well as by Screaming Lord Sutch. The Deep Purple song "Speed King" references the song ("'Good Golly', said Little Miss Molly"). An episode of Hannah Montana is titled "Good Golly Miss Dolly" in a reference to this song.

''Sweet Little Sixteen'' still aroused enough interest in the market, particularly in the UK, the encourage a raid on the back catalogue of another of his rock and roll peers. On this September session in Nashville found him recording Little Richard's ''Good Golly Miss Molly'', of which several ''polished'' alternates were recorded. These are heralded by a blistering, previously unpublished, initial run through which is in turn followed by a truncated take that continues as an informal jam. During the course of these preambles those present, including producer Billy Sherrill, saxophonist Boots Randolph, and the chorus featuring Marijohn Wilkin and three members of The Jordanaires, all assess what is required of them. Despite the congruent sound of the subsequent complete takes, Lewis throws a vocal clue into the first verse of each to help tell them apart. In the first it is in stretching the first ''Good Molly'' to the equivalent of four syllables; in the third, the second line id prefaced with the words''I say'', whereas the issued cut, take 2, is bereft of either embellishment.

If he doesn't embarrass himself on ''Good Golly Miss Molly'', neither does Jerry bring anything particularly original to the date. The drums are crisp, the chorus is restrained, and Jerry takes a pretty spirited 12 bar piano solo. The real trouble is that on his best work, Jerry drives the band. Here, he seems to be trying to keep up with a runaway train.  Buddy Harman's single-stroke drum rolls are powering the day and Jerry seems to be hanging on far dear life. His vocal even sounds strained, a quality that was never present on his strongest sides.

The flip of the resulting single (Sun 382) was a modern sounding country-pop affair, ''I Can't Trust Me (In Your Arms Anymore)'' which was also destined to feature in Shelby Singleton's 1970s recycling programme in a drastically altered configuration beyond the scope of this work; one obvious downside of multi-tracking is the scope for subsequent misrepresentation and the loss of authenticity. In the song's original guise it persists in the form of three separate recordings, superficially similar but each marked by a variation in the penultimate line where Jerry Lee at first, inappropriately sings the words ''we get lonesome all the time'', then corrects himself in the second take with ''we get closer..''. The lattermost proved to be the take issued with ''Good Golly Miss Molly'' on Sun 382. (*)
 
It's worth noting that the second take of ''I Can't Trust Me (In Your Arms Anymore)'' was published in 1989 stripped of the vocal chorus, a fate which also befell a number of tapes from Jerry Lee's final Sun session, alongside the misleading suggestion that the issued masters concerned were the products of overdubbing. However, as the original session tapes reveal, all the components heard on these recordings were concomitant as a ''live'' studio exercise, the authentic form in which they are presented here. (*)

''I Can't Trust Me (In Your Arms Anymore)'' (Sun 382) is another fine song by Vic McAlpin. Jerry's treatment takes the song midway toward pop, and the sax adds a strong bluesy feel to the arrangement. Jerry offers a fine piano break here, before launching back into the song's hook. In truth, the track deserved more than the regional attention it garnered at the end of 1962. Only the chorus (which featured Jerry's sister Linda Gail in her disc debut) works to the detriment of the record. When Shelby Singleton bought the Sun catalogue, he issued this track on the flipside of ''Your Lovin' Ways'' (SI-1128). Again it stiffed. Still believing in its potential, Singleton again reissued it in 1973; this time he stripped off most of the original backing track and added a new sound, led by the fine guitarist Little Jimmy Dempsey. Unfortunately, the results barely justified the effort.
 
Jerry's previous record had been a cover of a rock and roll tune ''Sweet Little Sixteen'' backed with a bluesy country original from the pen of Vic McAlpin. For his encore, he did exactly the same thing. This time out, it's Little Richard rather than Chuck Berry getting the nod. As he had a year earlier, Jerry made the drive east to record these sides in Nashville, using the finest pickers that city had to offer.

On the same occasion Jerry Lee Lewis recalled a few words of the refrain of an old southern song that harked back to the civil war era, ''My Pretty Quadroon'', and managed to stretch it out to a near three minute mid-tempo rock song; perhaps due to its overt ''political incorrectness'' it was destined to remain unheard until the release of a latter-day Sun LP in the Netherlands in January 1974, called ''Jerry Lee Lewis - Collectors Edition''.
Of more potential interest from a commercial point of view was the decision to reprise ''Waiting For A Train'' . Another five, possibly many more takes of the displaced hobo's tale of woe were recorded. None improved markedly upon the results of the earlier Memphis session, although the presence of the saxophone and vocal chorus in lieu of the organ heard formerly gave rise to a very singular ambience. Jerry Lee's familiarity with the song encouraged a casual approach to the lyrics which led to several clues becoming manifest to help tell the alternates apart, markedly in the second verse where, in reflecting on the address to the brakeman, he suggests variously that ''I had to make a line of talk''; or that it was ''just to make a line of talk''; or ''just to make a little line of talk''. At times the illustrious backing vocalists are rather more to the fore though the surest way to confirm distinctions across the piece is to focus on Lewis's concluding yodel on each performance. Jerry Lee's fondness for the song is apparent throughout although none of the recordings he left behind at Sun quite match up to the more mature sounding reading on a Smash album, the release of which predated the Sun International single by some nine months.

CLASSIC JERRY LEE LEWIS - THE DEFINITIVE SUN RECORDINGS 1956 – 1963
 
To summarize,  Jerry actually recorded at least 5 takes of this song at different sessions in 1962: In June of that year 2 takes were recorded, featuring the expected guitars, bass and drums plus Shirley Sisk on the organ. The slightly faster version was released first: mistitled ''All Around The Watertank'' it was issued on ''Olde Tyme Country Music'' in 1970, with the slower version appearing on the United Kingdom album ''Good Rockin’ Tonite'' 9 years later (the faster version was also released as single – backed by the dirty blues ''Big Legged Woman'' of all songs -  and was a top 20 United States country hit). On this session, September of 1962 he tackled the song another 3 times, this time without Shirley Sisk’s organ but with Boots Randolph’s saxophone! One of these takes was apparently issued on a Sun International single by mistake in the early 1970s (though this didn't seem to be common knowledge amongst fans until well into the 1980s), with the other takes released on various CDs during the 1980s. Lastly, he recorded the song again for the ''She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye'' album in 1969. Backed by a very tasteful and nobtrusive string section, once again (to my ears) a late 1960s Smash recording blows away all the earlier versions.

The recording session took place at Radio Recorders at 7000 Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood on March 26, 27, and 28, 1962. It peaked at number three on the Top Lp's chart. It was certified Gold on August 13, 1963 by the Recording Industry Association of America. 

As soundtrack album sales far outstripped his regular album sales (''Blue Hawaii'' outselling ''Pot Luck by Elvis'' by ten to one) Presley found himself firmly entrenched in songs designed for a light-entertainment formula of beautiful scenery and girls galore. With this discrepancy in sales, the formula of the soundtrack music became the focus.

Sixteen songs were recorded at the sessions in March, of which thirteen were used for the soundtrack album. Banished from the kingdom after running afoul of the Colonel, songs from favored writers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller could only be those already written for someone else, in this case the title track being a hit for The Coasters in 1961 before being adapted for the Presley film. This song and two others, "Return To Sender'' and "Because Of Love," appear on the 1995 soundtrack compilation Command Performances; The Essential 60s Masters II''.

The tracks "Return to Sender" and "Where Do You Come From" were issued as the both sides of a single in October 1962, one month before the release of the soundtrack LP. "Return to Sender" became a substantial hit for Presley, peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the b-side "Where Do You Come From" peaked at only number 99 independently of the hit side. The Presley fan-club label ''Follow That Dream'' released an expanded version of the album in 2007, including alternate takes and songs recorded but not used for the soundtrack. The outtake "Plantation Rock" saw a performance by actor Rob Schneider on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 1996. The songs performed by Stella Stevens in the film, "Never Let Me Go", "The Nearness Of You'' and "Baby, Baby, Baby" — were in fact mimed to the singing voice of Gilda Maiken and have yet to be commercially released.

Following confirmation missiles had been removed from Cuba the United States blockade of Cuba ends. What happened when DEFCON 2 declared ? 1,436 B-52 bombers dispersed and made ready to take off, fully equipped, on 15 minutes notice. 145 intercontinental ballistic missiles stood on ready alert, while Air Defense Command re deployed 161 nuclear-armed interceptors to 16 dispersal fields within nine hours including one-third maintaining 15-minute alert status. I have included this to show how close full scale nuclear war was between the world's two superpowers, we can only guess that the Soviet Union was at similar alert status and had similar plans in place. 

Although no formal announcement was ever made by the United States following the Soviet dismantling of Missiles in Cuba the United States did Withdraw all nuclear missiles from Turkey by April 24th 1963 and because the Soviet Union and the United States came the closest in history to all out war a direct communications hot line was established between Moscow and Washington, D.C.

However, Narvel Felts was the first to revive one of Feathers' songs, the anthemic ''Tongue Tied Till''. However, it remained unissued until a European label, Southern Sound, released it with ''Lola Did A Dance''.

These two sides of Davis Houston recorded in Nashville by Bob Montgomery and leased to Phillips International in 1962, were re-released on Sun Records four years later on, October 1966. Under his agreement with Philips Electric from Holland, Sam Phillips could no longer use Phillips International imprint, so, when Davis Houston finally broke through with ''Almost Persuaded'', these early entries were reissued on Sun. Neither was a match for Houston's best work. In fact, they were something of a corporate kiss of death.

The single first appeared on Phillips International three issues before the label's demise; in 1966, it reappeared on Sun four issues before the label's end.  Unfortunately, these sides bore not a shred of resemblance to the titles Houston was recording with Sun alumnus Billy Sherrill in Nashville, and radio and the public alike gave them the double thumbs-down. Shelby Singleton reissued this single yet again after he took over the ownership of Sun, and the result were no different.

David Houston's major claim to fame, ''Almost Persuaded'', was still four years ahead of him when Buddy Holly's ex-partner, Bob Montgomery, and session guitarist Fred Carter produced these sides at Phillips' Nashville studio. Montgomery offered the cuts to Sam Phillips, who promptly leased them. This isn't a bad record, although it's nowhere near as powerful as his memorable 1966 crossover hit ''Almost Persuaded''. Miss Brown'' is an energetic, if undistinguished shuffle blues that Houston handles competently. It was written by Fred Carter, onetime guitarist for Ronnie Hawkins and the father of current country star, Deana Carter. The other side, Montgomery's ''Sherry's Lips'', is a strong pop-country ballad with an indisputable message: ''the same lips that kiss you can tell you to go to hell''. Only the somewhat overwrought performance in the song's release weakens the impact of this track.

These sides were reissued on Sun 403 in 1966 during the label's dying days in an attempt to cash in on Houston's success. Not surprisingly, they had no impact on the market owing to the large stylistic difference between these tracks and the sound of ''Almost Persuaded''.

Former Sun recording artist Mack Allen Smith and the Flames had to wait for their first record release until 1962 when they recorded for a jukebox dealer in Greenwood named Dominic Fretesi, whose main claim to fame was the recording of James Gilreath's big hit, 'Little Band Of Gold'.
 
Mack says of his first record: "It was cut at Hi studios in Memphis. It was an old Muddy Waters tune, 'I Got My Mojo Workin", and on the other side was a song I wrote called ''I'm A Lover'''. ''Mojo' hit the top ten out in Houston and in Memphis'', Mack Allen recalled.
 
This disc, and a second, the bluesy rocker ''Hobo Man'' with the flipside ''Old Man River'', were on the Vee Eight label. Today they stand up as inspired down-home southern rock and roll.

HOBO MAN / OLD MAN RIVER
 
"Ol' Man River", music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II) is a song in the 1927 musical ''Show Boat'' that contrasts the struggles and hardships of African Americans with the endless, uncaring flow of the Mississippi River; it is sung from the point of view of a black stevedore on a showboat, and is the most famous song from the show. Meant to be performed in a slow tempo, it is sung complete once in the musical's lengthy first scene by the stevedore "Joe" who travels with the boat, and, in the stage version, is heard four more times in brief reprises. Joe serves as a sort of musical one-man Greek chorus, and the song, when reprised, comments on the action, as if saying, "This has happened, but the river keeps rolling on anyway''.
 
The song is notable for several aspects: the lyrical pentatonic-scale melody, the subjects of toil and social class, metaphor to the Mississippi, and as a bass solo (rare in musicals, solos for baritones or tenors being more common). Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra had a hit recording of the song in 1928 sung in a much faster tempo than Kern and Hammerstein intended, and featuring Bing Crosby on vocals and Bix Beiderbecke on cornet. A second version, by Paul Whiteman with bass singer Paul Robeson on vocals and sung in a dance tempo, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2006. Also, in 2004, Robeson's version finished at number 24 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.
 
The song was first performed in the original stage production of Show Boat on December 27, 1927, by Jules Bledsoe, who also sang it in the part-talkie 1929 film, although that film version had little to do with the stage musical. Bledsoe also recorded the song years later. However, the most famous rendition of it, one that is still noted today, was sung by Paul Robeson in James Whale's classic 1936 film version of Show Boat. The first known recording of the song was by Kenn Sisson and His Orchestra, recorded on December 27, 1927, with Irving Kaufman on vocals.
 
The song became an American classic, and was performed by many musicians and musical groups, including Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, Bix Beiderbecke, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Harry James, Gordon MacRae, Robert Merrill, Sam Cooke, Sammy Davis, Jr., Al Jolson, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Cilla Black, Melanie, Django Reinhardt, Ray Charles, Cher, Jim Croce, Jimmy Ricks and the Ravens, The Beach Boys, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, The Jeff Beck Group, Muslim Magomayev, Aretha Franklin, and Al Hirt. William Warfield sang it in the 1951 technicolor film version of ''Show Boat'' in another rendition that became very famous. (It became his signature song, and he performed it several times on television and in several stage revivals of Show Boat.) Melvin Franklin, the famous bass singer of The Temptations, performed it at most concerts, eventually making it his signature song. Judy Garland, one of the few female singers to attempt the song, sang a powerful rendition on her television show in 1963, followed by a studio recording. Indian Singer, Bhupen Hazarika had also sung a version in Hindi and his native Assamese called "O Ganga tu behti hai kyon". Cilla Black released a jazz version of the song on her first album in 1965 Cilla which Bing Crosby subsequently described as the best version he'd ever heard.
 
Among less well-known singers who have performed the song on television, bass-baritone Dan Travis, Jr. sang it in the made-for-television biopic Ziegfeld: The Man and His Women (1978), and P.L. Brown sang it in the 1989 Paper Mill Playhouse version of Show Boat, which was televised by PBS.

Doctor Ross was born in Mississippi, made his reputation as a bluesman in Memphis, then moved to 
Michigan for over 30 years to hold down a day job emerging occasionally to perform as a one-man band – 
playing harmonica, guitar, and drums. He almost retired from music before he was persuaded to appear on 
festival stages and the blues revival circuit in the mid-1960s. His image then was a dream for publicists and 
journalists alike – with his stage name of Doctor and his theme song about curing the ''boogie disease''. Ross 
was not the first to use the theme of the musical medic come to help you feel better – Doctor Clayton and 
others got there first – but Ross's take on the medic idea was the boogie; if you wanted to hear good-time 
music, or wanted to shake your thing, or indeed wanted the other thing ''boogie'' implied, then he was your 
man.
 
Ross was one of the very best at creating highly rhythmic back country dance music and at recycling 
folk blues couplets – mainly drawn from the recordings of Sonny Boy Williamson – to which he added some 
of his own wry humour and wit. But the music he originally made, down in Southern juke joints and radio 
stations in the 1940s and early 1950s, was not performed as a one-man band. He was very much part of the 
small group scene, renowned for his prowess as a harmonica player and vocalist. Sam Phillips once told 
Martin Hawkins, ''Doctor Ross had a very special sound. He had a great command of his music and a real 
instinct for what was going on around him. ''Chicago Breakdown'' is one of the better records I think ever 
heard in my life, if I am allowed to say that''.
