Post here your Elvis' pictures

Elvis & Drums

Sun Mar 11, 2007 11:45 am

I am fascinated by the sublime Japanese cover art from a Dec 1965 EP (SCP-1244) where it depicts a colourised Elvis photo from either the King Creole or Jailhouse Rock sessions with Elvis playing drums.

Can anyone confirm the date that this photo was taken and also if any others exist. I have found one other taken at the same time but that's it.

Help would be appreciated.


PS - I wish I knew how to post pics on here or I would post what I am talking about.

click 'browse' (select a file from your hard drive)
dot upload: file
tick the 'resize image?' box (select 320x240)
tick the 'remove size/resolution bar from thumbnail?' box

copy the URL address from 'Thumbnail for forums (1)'
paste into either 'new topic' page, or 'post a reply' page just like this one and click on 'submit'.

If you have trouble PM me or email me at

Glad to be of help. Cheers!

Now I have the hang of this, cheers again funky.

Are there any more photos from this shoot though? And has anyone got the b/w one above any clearer?

I'm sorry, but I don't have any from this photo session!

That is one cool cover elvisonline, do you have this record?

Does anyone know how many records were in the PRESLEY GOLDEN COMPACT SERIES?

I´m sure I´ve seen a photo from late 1960 or 1961, with Elvis behind a drumkit. Maybe in Ernst Jorgensens first book called "Recording sessions".

Taken during the production of 'Wild In The Country'!

Yes I do have this EP Eric and it is the pride of my collection. IMO this is the best picture cover ever released anywhere.

There are others that rival it like this one from Spain but not quite as good


There are at least 20 Golden Compact Series EP's from Japan, most of which have sleeves unique to Japan. There is an awesome EP for Jailhouse Rock which uses a picture from Loving You. I will post that one when I get home.

Here it is below;

Exactly! Thank you very much! :)

Some more Golden Compact Series EP's just for Eric :wink:

I will gradually post them all here if there is interest;





I hope you enjoy them :)

Sorry, but. Jesus f***

Thank you elvisonline.

I have a lot of the original US singles, ep's & lp's but these Japanese/ Chinese/ Korean (?) covers are new to me.

Is there some sort of web-site or book where I could learn more about these releases?

Once again for Eric. Check out the Kid Galahad photo; it is actually a different photo from the one that appears on the UK/US sleeve. Some will say its only touched up with colour, but look closely - it is different! They are all standard Japanese EP's released in Dec 1965, as part of the Golden Compact Series :)
