New to Me 1956 or 1957?

Here are a couple from Ebay that I haven't seen before. One was taken during the Ed Sullivan Show rehersal but the other one with a fan looks like 1957.

Thanks for the post, bluejeans1944.

Please note that the first photo was taken June 5, 1956, during Elvis' second appearance on Milton Berle's show. Here's a similar one :

Sorry, but I can't help with the second one, which it's new to me.

eBay listings are very often wrong.

As noted, the first is from NBC in Los Angeles, in his dressing room at the Milton Berle Show on Tuesday, June 5, 1956.

The second is before his show at the Hobart Arena in Troy, OH, on Saturday, November 24, 1956.

Well, in fact it's November 26, before leaving Louisville, Kentucky.

From “The Atomic Powered Singer” by Brian Petersen:

"On-route back to Memphis, at 7:30 p.m. Elvis stopped in Madison, Tennessee, to visit with Colonel Parker. A couple of journalists and photographers dropped in on Elvis for a cup of coffee and a conversation and found Elvis with his feet propped up on the soft arm of a sofa and his hands clutched behind his head. He was dressed in grey flannel slacks, a black and grey sports jacket and a sport shirt. Elvis admitted that the quickie stops around the country made him tired.
"Don't get me wrong," he added, twisting his diamond horseshoe ring on the middle finger of his left hand. "I love crowds. People have sure been wonderful to me. I am as grateful as I can be." The grin that launched a million wails spread from one sideburn to another as Elvis denied the existence of a special girl in his life. "I have a few good friends who are girls," he laughed. "but I can't say I know anyone special in Nashville." Around 11:30 p.m. the group made moving out motions and a little later the pink Cadillac headed west, arriving in Memphis the next day."

The candid is seen on James V. Roy's site as well:

Scotty Moore - Hobart Arena - Troy, OH

Either Brian or James is mistaken.

The photos from Jim's page are, indeed, from November 24, all but one.
The photos with black (?) shirt are from November 26 (same shirt like in the Elvis and Colonel photos)
On November 24 he had a different shirt, see bellow.
