We kicked this around about 4 years ago and we could never pin one down. The best we could determine at the time was it was likely around the week of the 3rd while they were around the Memphis area recording Baby Let's play house. I've heard nothing newer since.

The result was mentioned in the Commercial Appeal on February 6, 1955 so at least we know that it was prior to that date.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but the photo that initiated this thread looked odd to me. Then it struck me that that's the first photo I've ever seen of Scotty to Elvis's left an Bill on his right. Elvis is playing right-handed so the photo isn't reversed.
I've probably only seen a fraction of Elvis photos that many of you have but is that stage arrangement unusual?

Perhaps, but Bill Black moved around quite a bit with that doghouse bass.

Thank you for the reply doc.

I suppose a photo only captures a fraction of a second and they might only have swapped sides temporarily.

What a sight it must have been to behold in 1955.
