Today In Music, June 17

On this day in 1973, Dolly Parton recorded "I Will Always Love You" at RCA Studio "B" in Nashville with producer Bob Ferguson. The song had been inspired by Parton's professional split with partner Porter Wagoner. The song would not be released until February 1974 on Parton's Jolene album. It was released as the album's second single in April and became a #1 Country hit. It would later be mangled by Whitney Houston and sell a gazillion copies.

In 2005, Pete Doherty again made news having absolutely nothing to do with music when he and model Kate Moss were tossed off a yacht during a party thrown by English socialite Davinia Taylor after Pete was caught smoking crack cocaine.

On this date in 2007, the Traveling Wilburys went to #1 on the UK albums chart with the release of The Traveling Wilburys Collection, a box set featuring their two albums, which had been long out-of-print.
