This picture amazes me how a guy can be so stunningly handsome, in that tough, angelic way, what a combination! Any idea where and when this pic was taken, I'm pretty sure it was in 1957, but that's about it. I'm talking about the pic with Elvis holding the album, not the cover sleeve itself.

Are you referring to the guy on the album sleeve ?

Or the guy holding it ?

The one on the sleeve.

I don't know the guy who holds it, but he looks a little bit familiar to me.

Usually, he is very photogenic.

But here, the camera has caught him looking..... well..... what's the word ..... no.... it won't come to me............

He doesn't look very 'Elvisy' at any rate.............

Elvis? Never heard that name before, but I found some pictures of that photogenic guy on the net where he really looks "Elvisy".

Let's start with this one...

It may have taken on the set of "Loving You" circa February 1957, or in Memphis a month later. The other guy holding the LP, cut out of this version but just as good-looking, was Memphis DJ and Humes High semi-pal, George Klein.

The photo may have been part of a sales award ceremony for that second Presley album, LPM-1382, which hit #1 not too long after its release by RCA in October 1956.
