The comeback (1968–1972) It took the energetic 1968 television special ''Elvis (Elvis (1968 TV program))'', which the Singer Sewing Machine Company sponsored, and a subsequent series of acclaimed recording sessions in Memphis, Tennessee, to restore Elvis Presley's musical reputation. However, the music scene and the culture in the latter part of the decade had radically changed. The "Singer Special" TV show was not intended to turn out the way it did. Parker was adamant that Presley would wear a Santa suit and other holiday garb and sing Christmas songs, as the show was to be broadcast in December 1968. (Several Presley historians have noted the original title for the special was to be ''Elvis and the Wonderful World of Christmas''.) It was the producer of the show, Steve Binder, who put forward the idea of Presley singing his old hits and even the staged section with his old band, Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana, the latter inspired by a post-rehearsal informal jam in Presley's dressing room. Presley was never one to stand up against Parker, but he knew that this TV show was his one chance at a true comeback, and with Binder backing him, Presley told Parker he was doing it "Binder's way." There is much debate as to what should be considered the first rock and roll record. One contender is "Rocket 88" by Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats (in fact, Ike Turner and his band The Kings of Rhythm), recorded by Sam Phillips for Sun Records in Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee) in 1951. M. Campbell, ed., ''Popular Music in America: and the Beat Goes on'' (Boston, MA: Cengage Learning, 3rd edn., 2008), ISBN 0-495-50530-7, pp. 157–8. It has been argued that "That's All Right (Mama)" (1954), Elvis Presley's first major single for Sun Records was the first rock and roll record, N. McCormick, "The day Elvis changed the world", ''Daily Telegraph'', 24 June 2004, retrieved 17 January 2010. but, at the same time, Big Joe Turner's "Shake, Rattle & Roll", later covered by Bill Haley, was already at the top of the Billboard R&B charts (Hot R&B Hip-Hop Songs). Other artists with early rock and roll hits included Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Gene Vincent. Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" (1955) became the first rock and roll song to top Billboard magazine's main sales and airplay charts, and opened the door worldwide for this new wave of popular culture. P. Browne, ''The Guide to United States Popular Culture'' (Madison, WI: Popular Press, 2001), ISBN 0-87972-821-3, p. 358. Soon rock and roll was the major force in American record sales and crooners, such as Eddie Fisher (Eddie Fisher (singer)), Perry Como, and Patti Page, who had dominated the previous decade of popular music, found their access to the pop charts significantly curtailed.

Schurk, ''Tarnished Gold: the Record Industry Revisited'' (New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction, 3rd edn., 1986), ISBN 0-88738-618-0, p. 13. *"Rocket 88" was recorded on March 5, 1951 by Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats - actually Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm - and covered later in the year by Bill Haley and the Saddlemen. Brenston's version - produced in Memphis, Tennessee by Sam Phillips and leased to Chess Records - was highly influential for its sound and lyrical content, and was a big hit. It reached #1 on the Billboard Rhythm and Blues chart (Hot R&B Hip-Hop Songs) on 9 June 1951, and set Phillips on the road to success by helping to finance his company, Sun Records. Haley's version was one of the first white covers of an R&B hit. * Willow Creek Southwest 185th Avenue Transit Center, Hillsboro, Oregon * Air Tahoma Flight 185 was a scheduled cargo flight from Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee) to Cincinnati which crashed August 13, 2004 * SilkAir Flight 185, was a scheduled passenger flight from Jakarta, Indonesia to Singapore, which crashed December 19, 1997, the subject of a documentary (SilkAir 185: Pilot Suicide?) - Tennessee Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee) Main Street Mall, 3 4 of a mile (1200 m) 5000 Car free mixed-use district in the heart of the city - At age 16, Rattlesnake moved to Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee) and then on to Huntsville, Alabama.

Since 1979, the ''Bundesversammlung'' has traditionally met on May 23, the anniversary of the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the anniversary of the Basic Law (Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany) coming into force on this day in 1949. It is chaired by the President of the Bundestag (or one of the Vice Presidents, if the President stands as a candidate - as was the case with Karl Carstens in 1979). The ''Bundesversammlung'' is dissolved once the elected President declares that they accept their election, which decision may be delayed for up to two days (however, no would-be president-elect has ever done so). History Hof was originally called ''Rekkenze'' and established around the year 1080. The settlement was first mentioned 1214 and became a town in 1319. After a rather uneventful history, the town became Prussian in 1792, French in 1806 and finally Bavarian in 1810. In 1823, the town was virtually destroyed by a fire. In 1945, it suffered minor destruction due to aerial attacks. From 1945 to 1990 Hof lay very close to the border (Iron Curtain) between East Germany and West Germany. In 1989 thousands of East German citizens, who had demanded the right to travel or emigrate to West Germany and had been allowed to do so, first arrived on western soil at Hof's railroad station, having been placed on a special train and officially "expelled" by the East German government. Hof is located near the old Berlin-Munich autobahn, which was thought to be a possible invasion route by Warsaw Pact forces had the Cold War ever turned into armed combat Chronik 30 Jahre – History of Post SV Berlin Rugby, accessed: 11 April 2010 - ''Flight of the Eagle'' ''Ingenjör Andées luftfärd (:sv:Ingenjör Andrées luftfärd (film))'' 1982 Jan Troell Sweden, West Germany, Norway ''Ingenjör Andées luftfärd'' Per Olof Sundman 1967 Novel - First documented in the 13th century, Berlin became the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia (w:Kingdom of Prussia) (1701–1918), the German Empire (w:German Empire) (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (w:Weimar Republic) (1919–33) and the Third Reich (w:Third Reich) (1933–45).
