Found a very nice article today on: http://www.chron.com/entertainment/music/article/1956-The-year-that-made-Elvis-Presley-a-star-6849855.php#photo-9446564

1956: The year that made Elvis Presley a star
It's easy to remember 'the King' as a 1970s Vegas act, crooning in a rhinestone jumpsuit. But when he was an up-and-coming rock star, Elvis Presley had an amazing work ethic.
