Popsie Photo collection December 1st 1955

Sun Apr 25, 2010 1:41 am

Wednesday 30th November 1955 : Elvis and the Colonel fly to New York, where they register at the Hotel Victoria on Fifty--first Street.


Elvis was in new York December 1st 1955 to meet with the Colonel and RCA executives, including president Larry Kanaga and publicity director Anne Fulchino. A photo shoot has been arranged and pictures of Elvis and the Colonel, Elvis and Steve Sholes and Elvis and fellow RCA recording artists Eddy Arnold who happened to be in New York for a session. The photo's are taken in RCA's Twenty-fourth Street studio, along with posed action shots that will be used on the back of Elvis' first album.

Elvis Day by Day

I was inspired by this thread here in the 'All Elvis' section viewtopic.php?f=1&t=52311 to put all the images that I could find from the publicity shots taken in New York,on December 1st 1955.

Great!!

David, please note the Janis Martin quotes are misplaced.

As mentioned on the topic that inspired you, since Martin was signed after Elvis, their 1956 RCA New York meeting must have taken place at some point during the period of the color photo session Presley had with David B. Hecht, held sometime between between January 26 (Thu) and February 4 (Sat).

Likewise one of the images from the back of the LP does not seem to be elsewhere.

Did you check the images in the FTD Classic Album version of the original back cover?

At least one new photo there. Roger Semon is cheeky.

Great thread but James V, I'm officially very distracted by your avatar! :lol:

The collection makes me want to cue up the old first LP... or the FTD. What a treat.

Thanks for compiling it, Davide, et al..
