Songman' Rare Picture

Sun Apr 03, 2005 2:56 am

Since I am a self - confessed 70'S CANDID jpeg junkie, I just wanted to bring Songman' Rare Picture, over into the mainstream Elvis forum. What an awesome picture this is! Steve_M hit the nail on the head with his MOST accurate information, in which I am truly grateful! Thanks guys!
For sake of this post, I have posted two more pictures to complete the story!




It appears as though these were taken on the 15th of May 1970! Can anyone
confirm or deny!? I thought they were taken in December. Thanks in advance

The photos are likely from Dec '70 -- he was getting one of his badges, maybe in Washington D.C.

Wow! Fantastic picture. Thanks to Songman and funkyangel.

I agree, the clip-on tie just doesn't work with the shirt! Only Elvis could get away with that and still look great!

Thanks for sharing! Elvis looks so damn cool. The hair, the clothes, the glasses... Priceless! :D

Someone should do an Elvis book of all the best candids from the 70s!

Really great pics indeed!!

Btw, I was just reading through the FBI files of Elvis (interesting, and often funny, reading. Highly recommended!), and found a comment from this time period. It's in a memorandum to Mr. Bishop from M.A Jones, dated 12-30-70 (not too long after the aforementioned pictures were taken). And it says (under "oberservations"),

"Presley's sincerity and good intentions notwithstanding he is certainly not the type of individual whom the Director would wish to meet. It is noted at the present time he is wearing his hair down to his shoulders and indulges in the wearing of all sorts of exotic dress..."

Then later, under "recommendation" it says, among other things, that Elvis should be given a special tour of the facilities, but "that it will not be possible for the Director to see them".

The way I read it, it seems that Elvis didn't get to see mr Hoover because he was "not the type of individual whom the Director would wish to meet." And that some of it had to do with his clothes and hair style!!

Elvis - always the rebel, huh? :)
"A stone cold natural freak..." ;)

That was in connection with Dec 21st and Elvis popping into an address in Washington to see if the President wanted to play.

Great pictures FunkyAngel. Fantastic! Thank you for posting them.

Elvis was definitely different. He had a style all of his own and carried it off perfectly.

The first one (I firmly believe, tho please correct me, if I am wrong) was taken up in Washington, either on the 30th or the 31st Dec! The second one was most definately taken back down in Memphis, at the New Years Eve party!

****, I've just noticed Elvis' left tit! lol

The following two jpegs are from Denver (17th Nov. '70) and Memphis (31st Dec. '70 during the New Years Eve party), respectfully!
