What does music history have for us this week? Learn up and boogie down.
Otis Redding’s (Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay reaches No.1 on March 3rd, 1968—three months after his fatal plane crash in Lake Monona (only a mile from Murfie HQ).
Pink Floyd released their iconic record “Dark Side of the Moon” on this day in 1973—available on Murfie in any format you like (MP3, AAC, and lossless formats FLAC & ALAC).
Happy Birthday Jim Pons (born 1949)! Jim was the guitar player of The Turtles, the 60’s American pop outfit responsible for “Happy Together.”
Marc Bolan of T Rex released his first book of poetry on this day in 1969—it was called “The Warlock of Love”.
Tammi Terrell died from a brain tumor on this day in 1970. Her death caused Marvin Gaye to became disillusioned with the music industry—Marvin then attempted to secure a position on the Detroit Lions football team.
Big Star frontman Alex Chilton died on this day in 2010. Hanging out down the street will never be the same, but the music lives on.
