The second was first published in Ger Rijff's Memphis Lonesome (Tutti Frutti, 1988).

They look to be circa Sep-Oct 1955. Brian P, your thoughts?

Yeah, they are great photos.

You were very close dating these photos Doc as they're from the tour of Texas that is mentioned on the Louisiana Hayride show on August 20, 1955.

I wouldn't be surprised if they turn up in the upcoming SUN-project. So keep an eye open.

Sincerely
Brian

Man, thats cool. Elvis doing the Hookey Pookey. No pun. Little kids and rockabilly go hand in hand for some reason.
I have seen so many vintage candids of children at rockabilly shows. Always upfront and center....BOPPIN' THE BLUES!
