The first is Russwood park, July 4, 1956, I believe a Wertheimer shot.
The second is Pine Bluff Arkansas with the Brown's on December 14th, en route to his final Hayride Commitment on December 15, 1956 (see http://scottymoore.net/shreveport2.html)
the third is at a party for the Browns' parents thrown by Tom Perryman in Gladewater (see http://scottymoore.net/gladewaterMC.html)
The fourth is at the Dallas Sportatorium and is a cropped version we ( I anyway) have been in dispute hereof as to its date for sometime. (see http://scottymoore.net/sportatorium.html)

I've read quite a bit from your Scotty Moore site, and it's hard to keep a good memory of everything you have there.
If you would only publish a book in the same format as your web site, it could possibly be some of the best information ever published on Elvis' early career. Your website is untouchable when it comes to 50's Elvis, and by far the best in the world.

Thanks for your info!

Thanks, that is Ana Fernandez' site. She kind of grabs everything from everywhere and reposts stuff. I notice that she got a few things from me there, which is fine. She's from Spain and has to be one of the most 50s American pop style infatuated people I've ever come across. I don't know where she gets half her stuff but she's always got something interesting to post about, usually just cool photos with no particular context, rhyme or reason. She finds and befriends some very obscure sideline artists and through them gets insight on a lot of people. One in particular recently was Rayburn Anthony and on a recent trip over here managed to visit Scotty with him.

Glad you enjoy the site. I don't have any plans to do a book and very little plans to add much more new content. It was not originally intend to be so voluminous but sort of just took on a life of its own. Erik Lorentzen just published his Elvis Files book volume one that I see has a lot of my stuff in it which is cool though I would have preferred more specific citations than the blanket acknowledgement in the beginning, but at least he asked which is more than a lot of others have done. I have recently helped him with some thing he's planning for next year and may at some point assist with more so at least some of it gets in a hard copy form.

But it would be a GREAT book! I thought it was a wonderful idea! The information, along with the photos, is just the absolute best.

Jim's website has been very inspiring to me for researching things from the 50s. Let's hope he doesn't stop creating those wonderful venue stories, but it can be disappoint some times to see things being published without credit.
