Does anyone have a date on this photo? It looks like early 60s to me. Appears on one the calendars. Such a cool photo IMO.

According to a similar snap in From Nashville To Memphis: The Essential 60's Masters booklet, it was taken after a Nashville session in 1961. This would date it to circa mid-March 1961.

Thanks Doc! I love the music from that era....early 60s...post army recordings...which sounded very different from the 1950s material. I LOVE his 50s songs too. Every decade seems to have it's highlights. Elvis was the master, for sure! :D

I think this picture is from the time filming "Wild In The Country".

I think his hair is a bit too long for Wild in the country.

?

it looks even shorter than in wild in the country.
anyhow...the difference in that is so minimal that you can't take that as reference.
everything between late 1960 to early to mid 1961 is possible.

I thought so, until I read the credit in the 60s box that I mentioned above.

Then I compared the snap to other photos from February-March 1961, and it indeed looks much closer to that time frame.
