Thanks elvisjock,really liked that video!!!

I wonder if Elvis really kept up with these things?

Probably not,I mean,who among us,if we were that sucsessful for over a decade,would pay any mind to it?

Just a thought.

That's what I was thinking. Elvis dressed kind of "normally" for the 70's. Looks like jeans,probably cords? Short sleeve shirts seemed rare in the 70's too

The photo of Sholes and Presley had to have been taken in October, on the set of "Kissin' Cousins."


Thanks to YOU Doc,you did all the work!I just pointed you in the direction(gave you a wrong date,actually :oops: )
This makes me wonder,is this the earliest pic of Elvis getting an "RIAA" award?

BTW,the other "official" LP awards he had up to this point recieved were;

Elvis(1960)
Elvis' Golden Records(1961)
Blue Hawaii(1961)
GI Blues(1963)
Girls Girls Girls(1963)


Steve Sholes presented Elvis with a Gold record for "Heartbreak Hotel" - April 14, 1956.

Hi,EPA 4368!

My point was RIAA awards,which didnt begin until 1958.I have no doubt the awards you pictured were real(they have been recognised by the RIAA).

The first "award" he got from this organisation was in Feb. 1960,for his second LP.

What you pictured were "in house" awards,which we now know were accurate.

Note: this was not a gold award, but a presentation for the billionth (some reports say two billionth) record pressed by RCA, which just happened to be Moody Blue.

Hi jbnva58,
I understand now what you were asking. You've brought up a very good question. Hopefully we'll find pics of Elvis getting "RIAA" awards before October '63.

A photo that I haven't seen posted is the photo of Elvis at one of the Houston Press Conferences in Feb. 1970 (brown outfit) for "From Elvis In Memphis", "From Memphis To Vegas / From Vegas To Memphis." and three singles, "In The Ghetto," "Suspicious Minds" and "Don't Cry Daddy." It can be found on page 294 of Ernst's "A Life In Music" book.

I think it's also worth pointing out that during the February 1961 dinner and shows, Elvis at most was only presented with two awards by the RIAA, if at all (Elvis the second album and the "Hard Headed Woman" single). I seriously doubt though that these were presented to Elvis at this time, even though RCA was touting Elvis as having sold 75 million at the time. Also the photo for Elvis getting a gold record for the Christmas album is a bit misleading as according to the RIAA website both it and the Girls!, Girls!, Girls! soundtrack were
awarded at the same time.
