Post here your Elvis' pictures

Buffalo 1957, from both sides.

Just found out I have two shots of Elvis taken from opposite sides at the same split second.
Notice the flash in both photos from the other photographer.

Awesome! What song do you think he's singing?

I believe this is Hound Dog as the paper says that Elvis "closed the show with "Hound Dog," during which he threw himself to his knees in an impassioned gesture, ended the song and dashed from the stage.

No wait, that wasn't written yet................ !

So where have those pics been all these years without us seeing them ?

Just love the veterans visible in the audience looking completely unmoved by the performance !

About those two Johnson City ´77 photos... That´s Elvis giving his guitar pick to Harold Newton. I got these two photos from Harold himself. He took thousands of photos of Elvis in concert, some of which have been seen here on the Picture of the Week page.

well done

well done on thematch up of those two pictures.They would be the only two live shots I have seen from that concert. There have been others with
"The Hound" doing the introduceion and when he and Elvis played the April Fool's day joke on the crowd, before the show began.
keep up the good work Brian

I have two more. First this one famous photo that I am sure you have seen before
and then this one with George Lorenz

A few more backstage-photos to go with the one Funky posted

Are there any more photos from this date out there?

A question for you experts out there, is the concert poster floating around ebay real? Did the original posters look like this?

Have a good one!

Here's a few more Little Sister.



I don't think the poster is for real. The exact same layout was used for a poster advertizing a Buffalo show on January 21, 1956. With the exact same photo from Love Me Tender which wasn't even thought of in January 1956.
I wouldn't even think of buying the poster.

notice that jacket in the backstage pix appears to be the same one in the studio shots taken in New York that we were trying to date a few weeks back.
Not that that helps at all.

Nice pix though. I've seen a differently cropped version of the top one before without the book crease. It shows the full back to the extension booster speaker cabinet of Scotty's built by Ray Butts
