On This Day July 28 in Rock & Roll History






On this day July 28, 1956 Capitol records’ version of Elvis Presley makes his first appearance on national TV on the Perry Como Show. His name is Gene Vincent. He sings “Be-Bop-A-Lula.” The flip side of the single is called “Woman Love” and it might have hurt sales (or maybe helped) as it reportedly contains the “F” word.  But the hit side is a true rock and roll classic. The 45 can fetch $40.00. The 78 version can sell over $100.00 and a white label promo copy of the 45 is worth up to $350.00.
