Many thanks, The fool.

Priceless stuff, as always ! :smt006

By the way, I'm sure you knew that, but the photo showing Elvis and Kay was reversed. Here's the correct view :

Kay Wheeler was also in the low-budget R'n'R movie "Rock Baby Rock it". This movie waz a "quick" put together job to cash-in on the R'n'R craze, it starred some very obscure artists, Rockabilly singer Johnny Carroll was one of them. Incidently Kay Wheeler dances (Elvis style gyrations) to an instrumental Johnny Carroll track called "Hot Rock". The acting in the movie is absolutely diabolical, but the music's great.

Thanks for posting, The Fool.

I haven't seen this movie for ages - I used to have it in Betamax format.

It's a blast to see Kay dancing to Johnny Carroll's music, and it's a great opportunity to see Sun artist Rosco Gordon, complete with Butch, the chicken, on top of his piano.

I's been many years since i've seen this movie too. I used to have a very poor copy of it on video cassette myself.

The other acts in the film are: The Belew Twins, Cell Block Seven (they supply the instrumental track "Hot Rock" that Kay dances to), Preacher Smith & The Deacons, The 5 Stars and Don Coates & Bon Aires.

This is NOT Elvis´ car.
This one was registered in Davidson county (Nashville, state capital) while Elvis´ cars were registered in Shelby county.

As you can see, I'm not an expert on Elvis' cars, or cars in general.

I found the photo somewhere and it was captioned as being Elvis' car, which made sense as Kay and Linda were fans, and there are some photos showing Kay with Elvis, that could have been taken the same day.

It's a cool photo, though !

Thanks for the information.
