What a picture. The guy on the left comes out looking even cooler than Elvis! That! You do not see everyday, and makes this photo, a standout. Thanks for posting link.

The "guy on the left" is non other than Billy Ward of Billy Ward & The Dominoes who sang the original version of "Rags to Riches". I'm not really into the fifties Elvis but I have to admit this is a very cool picture

It is a cool pic. Funny they felt the need to say that's the real Elvis Presley.

Here's the image:

It's definitely new to my eyes. Most likely taken between November 9 and 18, 1956, in Las Vegas. Elvis apparently caught the Billy Ward and the Dominoes show at least four times because he adored their rendition of "Don't Be Cruel," as arranged and sung by then-unknown Jackie Wilson.

Is it possible the image is from December of 1956, when Elvis went backstage at the WDIA Reveue in Memphis? He seems to be wearing the same jacket as in his picture with several of the performers on that day, inlcuding BB King.

Elvis wasn't wearing that tie, though. And I'm not certain the Dominoes were on the bill at the 1956 WDIA Benefit. Also, look at those chairs -- it's Vegas, baby.

... "Awesome!", to quote Joe The Toon Tunzi... I have one of him with Billy, shoulder to shoulder, in Vegas. It only appeared in an all Elvis mag, Elvis Parade, UK, circa 1959... "So when are you buying a scanner, tallhair!?" :oops:

Great pic. The photo is difinitely from November 1956, most likely November 15th when Elvis also met Liberace. There is a pic on http://www.tcbphotos.com from same date with Liberace where Elvis wears the same jacket and tie. The photo is the third photo in the lower line of pics under 50´s.

Elvis with Billy Ward is probably from prior to Elvis changing into another jacket. Maybe one of Liberace´s as it has always been said that they switched jackets but Elvis NEVER had the striped jacket that Liberace wears in those pics. But maybe Elvis DID slip into one of Liberace´s other jackets.

I can't reach the photos on tcb-photos.com, but is this the picture you are refering to?

Elvis hair most definitly looks the same on both of these pictures. And you can see that the hair on the front is starting to fall down on the Liberace-photo, and has countinued to fall down on the Ward-picture.

But is the Liberace-photo really from November 15? I have a bunch of photos of Elvis and him trading instruments, and Elvis is wearing a golden jacket. I always thought that THOSE photos were from November 15. :? Any help on that? :)

Yes Little Sister, that is the photo I was talking about.

I only suspect that the photos are from the same date only taken before Elvis changed jacket.

It could easily be from another date but Liberace is definitely wearing the same clothes on both photos and Elvis wears the same shirt and tie. I only assumed it being from same date (Nov 15) because of the mentions of Elvis and Liberace exchanging jackets.

I have one photo of Elvis sitting in the audience wearing the same jacket and looking up at Liberace looking down and talking to Elvis.

However, looking at Elvis´ trousers on the Billy Ward photo and the one with Elvis and Liberace backstage it seems that Elvis´ trousers are darker in the Ward pic. But that can be the darkness in the photo. wouldn´t have to be any proof for anything.

I'm guessing that this is the picture you are refering to.

Is the glittery-thing Elvis wore on the posed Liberace/Elvis-pics, a jacket Elvis borrowed from Liberace? I never thought of the fact that this could be THE jacket, that has been refered to so often. Or that the picture could be taken the same day as the photo I posted previously, with Elvis wearing his striped jacket... but now that you metion it it seems to make sense!! :D

OK, good night everybody!! God natt!! Time for me to finally hit the sack!

No exactly that photo Little Sister but I have another from same show, just moments before or after your pic.

Actually, I am curious -- since I do not recall seeing that jacket in "Jailhouse Rock."

Just pulled the DVD out to check and in the very beginning where Elvis is sentenced to jail he actually is wearing that jacket.

The jacket was also worn during Elvis´ tour in late March- early April of 1957.

Interesting, Brian. One wonders why MGM and director Richard Thorpe let Elvis bring his own clothing onto the set and into the film.
