IIRC, that was Elvis exiting after his September 27 Tupelo gig.

Thanks for putting this larger Seattle shot in this topic, Simon.

L-R: Elvis, Gordon Stoker, Neal Matthews, Hugh Jarrett, Hoyt Hawkins

Now, the question is, what song are they doing? The set list ->

Heartbreak Hotel
All Shook Up
I Got A Woman
That's When Your Heartaches Begin
I Was The One
Teddy Bear
Don't Be Cruel
Love Me
Fools Hall Of Fame
Blue Suede Shoes
Blueberry Hill - Elvis on piano
Mean Woman Blues
Hound Dog

On the September 9, 1956 Ed Sullivan TV appearance, Gordon played piano on "Ready Teddy" while here we see Hoyt behind the keys! Did anyone know Hoyt assumed this role on stage for Presley?

As Hoyt played piano on one of the January soundtrack sessions for "Mean Woman Blues," it is likely that song we are seeing in the photo. Boy, I sure wish we could HEAR it, too.

The Jordanaires have no mikes on this photo. Was it a common thing or does it mean that they were not singing on the song? If they were not singing I believe it could not be Mean Woman Blues.

Sometimes I think I'd kill to hear it...

There's a mic to Hoyt's left, by the piano -- the Jordanaires usually shared a mic when singing close with Elvis, but they must have had one devoted to their backing vocals. The photo depicts them well off to stage right.

It's quite clearly Blueberry Hill.

Based on what? Elvis usually liked to play that himself -- for example, in Los Angeles during his October tour.

Has your sense of humour been surgically removed? Of course it can't be "Blueberry Hill" for the reason you state.

Not much use if he doesn't know the answer, though !

Was there something funny we missed in that reply?

What if that had been Dudley Brooks sitting at the piano?

Is it possible the song is "Blueberry Hill"? Of course, yes.

Is it likely? Of course, the answer is no.

Spellbinder was just taking a flier on this, Doc, and was not being serious.
