Elvis Presley : January 29, 1955 The Louisiana Hayride

January 29, 1955: Billboard reviewed “Milkcow Blues Boogie” / “You’re a Heartbreaker” (Sun #215)

“‘Milkcow Blues Boogie’ … Presley continues to impress with each release as one of the slickest talents to come up in the country field in a long, long time. Item here is based on some of the best folk blues. The guy sells all the way. ‘You’re a Heartbreaker’ … Here Presley tackles the rhythmic material for a slick country-style reading. What with the good backing this one should get action, too.”

The British press is informed that P.J. Proby has been fired from a tour of England for splitting his pants onstage. Mary Whitehouse, a self-appointed guardian of British morals, spread the word that Proby’s actions were “indecent, vulgar, poisoning the minds of our teenagers.” In fact, Proby’s pants had split at the knee, and he later claimed the whole incident was an excuse to fire him and make way for Tom Jones, whose manager, Gordon Mills, had paid promoters to get rid of him.
