Elvis excites two Arena audiences
by Patrick MacDonald
There was no penetrating Elvis Presley's security web
around the Seattle Center Arena yesterday, where he
had shows at 3 and 8 p.m. Both sold out weeks ago.
Jim Borda, 23, Mercer Island, collects Presley
memorabilia and he showed up at the first show wearing
Elvis buttons and carrying copies of Elvis' earliest
recordings. 1954 releases from the Sun label in
"One of the guys in the band saw me and got Col.
Parker (Presley's manager) and he took me to see
Elvis. "This is only going to be an in-out thing,"
Col. Parker told me before we went into the dressing
room. He said we wouldn't be staying long. But Elvis
talked to me a while after they took the picture."
