The day Elvis died, I was driving the tractor on our farm. I noticed that they played several Elvis songs in a row. I didn't figure out that he had died until they made the announcement.

Dorothy Kilgallen wrote rock 'n' roll singer Jimmy Breedlove, aka Johnny Dollar, "sang all the 'demmo' recordings for Elvis before Presle immortalized the tunes."

"The top-selling record album in the country isn't listed on any of the charts. It's an off-color LP which has sold over 500,000 copies." ? ? ? - 1961

What would be that record album from 1961?
  Sun. 8/16/15 9:04pm Al:

Terry Reid turned down Led Zeppelin due to a commitment to record as a solo artist. He later turned down an offer to join Deep Purple.
  Wed. 8/19/15 7:54am WML? fan:

My unsure guess is “sick” comedian (as his genre was being called) Lenny Bruce. In 1961 Billboard has up to 15 comedy albums (Moms Mabley, Dick Gregory, Rusty Warren, Mike Nichols & Elaine May . . . ) on its weekly Top 150 LP chart (avec lotsa deejay-playing-comedy articles in 1961) - but I didn't find Bruce listed, who by accounts packed Carnegie Hall despite a major February snowstorm. (Didn't find Smothers Brothers at the Purple Onion listed, but Kilgallen qualified an “off-color” album.)

May 19, 1961 was Kilgallen's blurb – the midst of Gene McDaniel's “A Hundred Pounds of Clay” peaking all May at #2-#8. But NOT on the UK chart, explains “The History of Banned Rock 'n' Roll” at : “1961: Britains' BBC Radio bans the song '100 Pounds of Clay' by Gene McDaniels because it has a reference to women being created from building materials, which the network considered to be blasphemous.” (My fav is their 1968 listing: “ An El Paso, Texas radio station deletes all records by BOB DYLAN from its playlist, because it is too difficult to understand the lyrics.”)

Of JACKIE WILSON, Kilgallen gossiped April 19, 1961, “Singer Jackie Wilson is recuperating, although in pain, at Roosevelt Hospital after an operation for the removal of a kidney.”

Answer song: I Want Harmonica Lewinsky!
  Sat. 8/22/15 6:27am Dorothy Kilgallen omitted Jackie Wilson's:

being at Roosevelt Hospital since February's shooting by a mistress over loverboy's bringing home another
