Today in 1960, Ray Charles hit No. 1 in the US charts for #georgiaonmymind by #hoagycarmichael. What a song, what a player ❤️It was probably within the first 10 songs I learned to sing and play on guitar, and I still just love it. #raycharles #thegenius #musichistory

@Regran_ed from @amanda_parris - I’m excited to share that a new show I’m co-hosting with the wonderful Tom Power premieres next week!
It’s a deep dive into the CBC Music archives where we’ve uncovered epic performances , interviews and forgotten stories featuring some of the biggest names in music.
You’ll see Harry Belafonte Jr at his height, Shania Twain before the braces and a fierce young Buffy Sainte Marie.

Tune in to watch ‘From the Vaults’ on November 15th at 9pm 😊

#Repost @ruxspizzle_: In #1960 #RayCharles' cover of “#GeorgiaOnMyMind” hits #1, his first pop #1 and second million-seller. 
#Ray Charles, a native of #Georgia, recorded it for his 1960 album "#TheGeniusHitsTheRoad" after hearing his chauffeur repeatedly sing the standard. 
It became the official state song of the #StateOfGeorgia in #1979. #TWIMH

Fun classical music fact: Did you know that a violin is made from over 70 individual pieces of wood? #ClassicalMusic #Music #Radio #Art #NowPlaying #MusicHistory #Composer #Beethoven #Bach #Violin #Mozart #Symphony #Score #Musical #Trivia

In #1990 #MilliVanilli producer #FrankFarian held a press conference to confirm the rumours that the two members of the group #RobAndFab had not sung on any of their hit records and that they #LipSync when they perform live, which led to the group being stripped of their #Grammy for "#BestNewArtist"

Milli Vanilli started as the brainchild of German producer/Songwriter Farian and he recruited dancer/models #RobertPilatus & #FabriceMorvan to front the group when he found the vocalists he originally recorded to be "unmarketable"

There were claims that Farian manipulated the two by giving them a small advance when he signed them and told them they had to lip sync to the prerecorded music or, per the contract, repay the advance in full.

During an #MTV performance the backing track of “#GirlYouKnowItsTrue" skipped, repeating the phrase "girl you know it's true" which caused media to scrutinize the group's recordings

Embarrassed by the situation, Rob and Fab confronted Farian and insisted that he allow them to sing on their next album. Farian, however, had no interest in agreeing to this, so he revealed that their act was a sham.

Arista Records then dropped the act from its roster and deleted their album and its masters from their catalog, taking Girl You Know It's True out of print.

The news rocked the music industry, and the media latched onto the story with a passion. For many cultural critics, Rob and Fab's deception seemed to be a perfect representation of the artificial, pre-packaged nature of the pop music industry itself. #TWIMH

Sick days when you can't leave your bed. It's good if you can just score some blank papers and a black pen. Then time flies by in jiffy.. When you are pouring onto the paper. After a long time I got back to sketching... Have not lost it all..😀😀 Ps- those of you don't know the guy.. It's Ian Curtis from Joy Division.

It’s hard to understate how important London studios were to rock ‘n’ roll in the ’60s and ’70s, and high among those studios was Trident. Tucked back in an alley in London’s posh Soho neighborhood, Trident is barely noticeable from the street, and it takes a little bit of searching to even realize it’s a studio. Relative anonymity aside, Trident Studios were responsible for the discovery of Queen and their first four albums, Queen (1973), Queen II (1974), Sheer Heart Attack (1974), and A Night at the Opera (1975), as well as James Taylor’s eponymous debut album (1968), the Rolling Stones’ Let it Bleed (1969), David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars (1972), and Lou Reed’s Transformer (1972).
