, Elvis, Scotty Moore, Bill Black
, D.J. Fontana
and the Jordanaires
went to Vancouver by train to perform at Empire Stadium. It was the second stop of a tour of the Northwest that had started the day before in Spokane. By this time Elvis had recorded eight No. 1 singles in two years, had made three movies and was about to release 'Jailhouse Rock' as his latest single. Having performed in Toronto and Ottawa in April, this was only the third time they ever performed outside of the U.S. and for Elvis it would be the last. Vancouver's first rock-and-roll show had taken place barely a year before, when Bill Haley
and the Comets drew 6,000 people to the Kerrisdale Arena. Now Elvis had drawn a crowd over four times larger.
My first hero, and a very good friend of and to Elvis, Muhammad Ali has died today. It is hardly surprising that Muhammad Ali and Elvis Presley became good friends, their backgrounds were so similar and they became the two arms of the pincer movement of civil rights within entertainment and sport. Muhammad Ali : 'Elvis Presley was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you'd want to know'.
If you were a teenage girl living in the Tulsa area on April 18, 1956, chances are you were screaming your head off at the fairgrounds Pavilion. 'Presley Leaves 'Em Limp - 8,000 Squeal at 1st Show', read the headline in the Tulsa World the next day. Elvis was a 21-year-old singer and former truck driver who performed two 'frenetic' Tulsa shows, 60 years ago next month. Most of the tickets were $1 each.
On January 24, 1969 after completing the first recording sessions at American Studios, Elvis takes a winter holiday to Aspen Colarado with Priscilla and Lisa Marie returning for more recording on the 17th.
While it is well known that Elvis Presley and Sammy Davis Jr. were good friends, first meeting in the 1950s, maintaining a friendship through the years, now, we have a fantastic photo via a news paper clipping from Jet magazine, February 27, 1958 showing Sammy in full swing imitating Elvis, and what's more, the clipping tells us that Elvis was sitting in the front row, roaring with laughter. Imitations were a big part of Sammy's shows and Elvis was not left out in this regard, with Sammy singing Hound Dog in concert.
Ben Keough carries the very dominant Elvis Presley gene inheriting the famous pout and baby blues eyes that his mother Lisa Marie also dons.The resemblance is spooky to say the least, because given the year, if Ben Keough would dye his locks jet black he would be identical to his late grandpa, Elvis Presley.
Memphis, Tennessee, wasn't just Elvis' home; it was also his stage.
From small clubs to large coliseums, Elvis performed in many different Bluff City venues throughout his career. Recently we looked at the Presley family's Tupelo and Memphis homes and apartments
. This week, let's look at a few of the Memphis venues where Elvis wowed his fans. Elvis' career started small, with gigs at the Bel-Air Club and the Bon Air Club. But his first official billed performance was on July 30, 1954
, at the Overton Park Shell.
Elvis : 'The thing I keep up with most is professional football'. When he wasn't on stage, in a studio or on the big screen, there's a good chance you could find Elvis Presley playing football. Elvis loved other sports, too, like karate and racquetball. But Elvis always found time for a quick game, and if he couldn't play it himself, he watched his favorite teams compete on TV. He often watched three Football games at once in the TV room at Graceland where he had installed three TV sets.

In a never-before-seen photograph by Hollywood legend Nat Dallinger, Elvis Presley and Juliet Prowse attend a movie dinner after a special screening of their forthcoming movie G.I. Blues. The co-stars attended a studio-hosted buffet dinner to promote the film to exhibitors. Prowse, appearing in only her second major motion picture, apparently worked hard to perk up his mood.

I have today talked with Wade Jones the owner of the Elvis photo from 1945 in this article and I am convinced that the image that has been released in full via Vanity Fair is exactly as he received it. And importantly Wade has pointed me to conclusive facts showing that the 'first' so called 'Photoshoped' image was made by a fan and published openly online, from there, somehow this then become 'Wade's' photo which it never was. So we go back to the experts who when asked, 'Is it real'? Is it really him?
Here we have a ultra rare picture of a 13 year old Elvis Presley, posing in front of the Tupelo Hardware Store. There's no exact date for this picture, other than that it was taken, most likely, in 1948.

ultra rare photo of Elvis carrying the crown
given to him at the conclusion of the Aloha From Hawaii concert by a fan. Previously we have only seen a glimpse of this in the video from the telecast. This is only one of many great and previously unseen photos featured in the Boxcar book, Aloha Via Satellite
Here is an amazing image. With a modern day visit to Hawaii and an original photograph, Australian fan Alexander Attard with imagination and the help of some digital editing overlaid an original photo of Elvis in the backyard of a home in Hawaii with his recent photograph of the very same back yard.
Rare pictures from the LIFE archives (43 photos). LIFE presents a series of photos - most of which never appeared in LIFE - showing Elvis, along with his 15-year-old girlfriend, Priscilla Beaulieu, in Germany on the day he left for the States (March 2, 1960), and Elvis again at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where he landed on March 3, sans Priscilla. He was officially discharged from the Army on March 5. These photos, by LIFE photographers James Whitmore and Al Fenn, capture a moment in Elvis' life when he was poised to remind everyone who might have doubted it that, despite two years of taking orders, he was ready to again be the King.

. While Pittsburghers rang in the New Year Friday night in front of their TV sets with Guy Lombardo, 16,409 others Scorned 1977 with Elvis Presley at the Civic Arena. After three opening acts and a lengthy intermission, Presley unded on stage 35 minutes before midnight, but you would rethought the clock had struck 12. He received an ear-deafening ovation punctuated by thousands of blasts from flash bulbs and a patchwork of 'We-Love-You-Elvis' signs hoisted aloft. Presley had perhaps the most captive audience since Johnny Cash played Folsom Prison. And rarely did he lose his iron grip on the crowd during his 90 minutes on stage
. At the stroke of midnight, the house lights went up and Elvis led the crowd in singing 'Auld Lang Syne'.
In December 1960, RCA was preparing a 'compact 33 EP' to be released in January 1961. But is was not to be, until now. Here we have the recently discovered piece of official RCA paperwork, an 'RCA Listing Notice' that shows the preparation for the release, assigning catalogue number 'LPC-123'. For reasons still unknown the release was withdrawn at the very last moment. The title track was 'Love Me' ...

In May 2008 we published these photos of
Graceland from April, 1962
taken by Tony Douglas from Australia. Joseph Pirzada [MRS] promptly saw the value of these unique images and it was promptly arranged back then that they would appear in his planned Graceland Through The Years 1957-1977
book. Now four  years later
the book is set for release late next month, we thought you would like to take look at these again or for the first time if you did not in '08.

David English author of the FTD book release; Welcome Home Elvis has contacted us with some extra - and very interesting - information about the book. In regard to the CD we were most interested to learn that the mono CD of Elvis Is Back, was recently found in the UK. There has been plenty of speculation as to exactly what the master was. Then we have four  new pages of sample text from the book. As David explains; 'The idea first came to me to write an article about the Elvis Is Back Sessions, which then became too large, and it then expanded over a period of two years. This originally consisted of mainly text of each song having a detailed history, with songwriters, musicians, (in the form of the book 'Writing for the King') The book then expanded further to include the Sinatra Timex show
and now consists of the journey to Miami using original newspaper articles and photos which have probably not been seen since they were originally written.
