The song Rock Around The Clock was written and composed in November 1952 by Jimmy De Knight (aka James E. Myers) in collaboration with composer "freelance" , Max C. Freedman . It is likely , as was common at the time a publisher has offered Rock Around The Clock Dave Miller , owner of Essex Records in Chester ( Pennsylvania ) or someone around him but nobody ever wanted . It is finally Sonny Dae (aka Paschal Vennitti ) and His Knights in Chester which record the song in October 1953. Rock Around The Clock comes out ARCADE (45- AR- 123), a small label owned by Jack Howard in March 1954. (*) RATC sells for at least a thousand copies in the Delaware Valley , but it is not distributed nationally ( coast to coast ) lack of interest in a Major. Despite his insistence , "on" denied him the right to record (not even in the demo ) . Finally released from his contract with Essex Records, "Bill Haley and His Comets" will save RATC April 12, 1954 at the Pythian Temple in New York City. Bill Haley was so late ( arriving from the neighboring state , New Jersey ) for the record that he had to be back there twice which cost three hours of studio ( thin! Price to cost one hour. ..) . The disc is distributed by Decca ( ​​the 78s 29124 ) and Decca ( ​​the single 9-29124 ) " coast to coast " simultaneously with another country located in Western Europe : Belgium ! DECCA Label 9.60.961 B side of Pinball Boogie Red Foley ( 10 May 1954 ) . But back about seven months ago : Bill Haley , great musician and multi-instrumentalist ( guitar , slap bass ) has a flair like no other and he believes in this song . At the end of September 53 , he added to his repertoire and playing for the first time in public in the name of the time "Bill Haley With Haley's Comets" in the resort of Wildwood -by-the -Sea Hotel Hofbrau in southern New Jersey ( **) . A few months later , Rock Around The Clock does not take long to rank No. 23 in the Billboard Pop chart of May 29, 1954 (***) ... The following is part of the history of the "Popular Music" . ..

Billy J. Kramer: Do you want to know a secret?/I'll be on my way

billy j. kramer - do you want (...) - EP.jpgbilly j. kramer - i'll be on my way - 1963 single B-side (s.k.).jpgMarch 1963 : Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas are signed to Parlophone by EMI's George Martin. Liverpool songwriter Ralph Bowdler offers She's My Girl to record, but because of the Epstein connection, the group has access to Lennon and McCartney's songs and chooses I'll Be On My Way, on which The Beatles have passed, and Do You Want To Know A Secret?, just recorded by The Beatles for their first album.

June: Debut single hits UK #2 behind The Beatles' From Me To You. On the single, the "J." is inserted into Kramer's name for the very first time to distinguish him from other singers named Billy. This idea is credited to John Lennon. Released in UK as a single and an EP (Parlophone R 5023; GEP 8885 including also Bad To Me and I Call Your Name.) UK #13.

Autant dire tout de suite que ces Rockets n'ont strictement rien à voir avec les vrais Rockets (les accompagnateurs de son premier single sorti sur (disques) festival FX 45-1342 M publié en août 1963). Tous les backing tracks enregistrés par des musiciens de studio (appartenant à Loulou Gasté) sous la direction de Caravelli étaient déjà prêts quand William s'est amené à Paris. William ne sait même pas qui ils sont ! Il ne lui restait plus qu'à chanter. Deux chansons (s) Lennon-McCartney se trouvent sur ce second et dernier EP sorti chez Festival : France FX 45 1359 M et en Belgique FEP 1359 publié en janvier 1964. Deux chansons écrites pour leurs amis Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas (Bad To Me et I Call Your Name, sortis sur le même 45 tours Parlophone le 26 juillet 1963). Les adaptations en français ont été réalisées par Jil/Gilbert Guénet et Jan/Roger-Jean Setti pour Tu Changeras d'Avis et par Jacques Vatty pour Plus La Même. http://youtu.be/K52RpnR0qzU (Tu changeras d'avis) - Photo : © Stephan Koenig - 22 novembre 2011.

JOE COCKER (Pt 1) : Beatles' cover of With A Little Help From My Friends

cocker - with a little help (...) - 09-1968 (s.k. - 21-10-2011).jpgB. John Robert Cocker, May 20, 1944, near Sheffield, S. Yorks, UK. In 1960 having left school, buys a cheap drumkit and forms a skiffle group with schoolfriends. He plays in brother Victor's skiffle group The Cavaliers at night, making his first public appearance at the Minvera Tavern in Sheffield. 1963 : when The Cavaliers change their name to Vance Arnold & The Avengers, Cocker steps out front and sings, changing his forename to Joe, after Cowboy Joe. He also sits in with local bands like Dave Berry & The Bruisers. To be continued... 

Nov.6, 1968 : his distinctive cover of The Beatles With A Little Help From My Friends hits UK #1 for a week (Regal Zonophone HSS 1308, October 1968). Picture cover from France (EMI/Stateside FSS 612, October 1968. Belgium #11, 11/1968.

Acc. by Jimmy page (solo gtr); Barry J. Wilson [of Procol Harum], (drms); Chris Stainton (bs gtr, vox and keyboards). Choruses: Sue and Sunny alias in order Yvonne Wheatman-Glover and her sister Heather.

The Beatles are impressed with his version and send him a congratulatory telegram and place music press ads praising the record.

Subsequent TV exposure introduces a wider audience to Cocker's flailing, tortured stage movements (that we say today he was the inventor of the AIR GUITAR). Some find his performance distasteful and when he appears on the "Ed Sullivan Show", he is obscured by dancers as he sings.

Dec.14, 1968 : With A Little Help From My Friends peaks at US Billboard Top 100 #68.

Sgt. Pepper's Only Dart Board Band - Get Back (27/10/10)

Still at the same place on 27 October 2010 - Get Back...Jo Jo=>from an idea of a Chuck Berry's song Jo Jo Gunne (10/1958).

26.04.1969 : Get Back tops UK chart, the only Beatles single to debut in the UK at #1. On it, Billy Preston receives a label-credit as "The Beatles with...", the only artist ever to do so. A few months later (11/1968), Preston is not credited on the "White Album" [because of its plain white sleeve (a reversal from Sgt.Pepper's lavish one)] because of his A&M Records' contract.
