Fantastic. Thanks for posting these here! The man with Elvis looks a lot like Bill Randle to me.

Nice find. Definitely from 11-23-1956 in Cleveland, OH and new to my eyes as well.

The great Cleveland and New York TV and radio man Bill Randle -- who introduced Elvis before his January 28 network TV debut on CBS's "Stage Show" -- is pictured above (man with glasses).

The eBay page also has an interesting shot of Bill Haley and His Comets, probably in Cleveland, possibly also from November 1956.

It looks like they're playing in an alley. Anyone know more?

The photos were originally on Ebay for $500,00 but after I and obviously Chris Kennedy wrote and told the seller that the photos were from November 23, 1956 he lowered the starting bid to $200,00.

And like the Doc already pointed out, that´s Bill Randle in the second photo.

Yes, they're great shots, but as Brian said, they were initially incorrectly listed as Pied Piper photos.
Love the Haley photo. It looks like a gym to me, the band on a small riser.
I love how these things continue to be discovered. Goes to show you never know...!

Doc, nothing new, but there's still some interesting avenues left unexplored that I'm following up on.
I keep waiting for the film to just show up causally on Ebay, like these photos. It is a real "you never know" project! C
