Thread Name: Ever seen Elvis live?
Subject: RE: Ever seen Elvis live?
I am very glad to have seen Elvis live and in his early days with Scotty and Bill at his side. In the days before the high collars and fancy scarves. There was a little movement but not the exaggerated and rehearsed gyrations that later became trademarks. At that time showmanship in country music meant lavish rhinestone suits. Elvis put something personal in his performance and was dressed in a red blazer and black pants. While I was not blown out of my seat, it was a historic occasion for me and I enjoyed it enough to seek out a Sun 78rpm record.
