You Live In Brooklyn – It’s Feb.1956 – You Love Elvis – Not Everybody 

Loving You ;Elvis filmed the “tavern” scene from Loving You, in which envious local thugs picked a fight with singer Deke Rivers, who, like his real-life counterpart, definitely appealed to their girlfriends.

The Presleys lived at  Audobon Drive  March 1957. Then  at Graceland

King Creole: Elvis recorded soundtrack material on Paramount’s soundstage from 1.00 to 9.55 p.m. He re-recorded Steadfast, Loyal And True and he worked on the song Danny, which was still an option to be used as title song, in case the film’s name would remain A Stone For Danny Fisher.

The Presleys lived at  Graceland

The Military Service Disruption

Military Service: An employee of a German film company came to the house to try to persuade Elvis to sing just one song in an upcoming production. Elvis explained that he was hesitant to do anything that might lead to resentment on the part of his fellow soldiers. In passing, he expressed almost equal concern about fan resentment when he was unable to sign autographs.
Janie Wilbanks, the girl that Elvis met at the Memphis train station when the troop train passed through, had come to Germany, to visit her uncle, and stayed with Elvis for nearly a week – Feb 8 to?

October 1958 to February 2, 1959: Hotel Grunwald in Bad Nauheim, Germany

The set list: ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘From Me to You’, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, ‘This Boy’, ‘All My Loving’, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, ‘Please Please Me’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’, ‘Twist and Shout’, and ‘Long Tall Sally’.

  David Bowie released ‘Sound and Vision’ as a single, which was taken from his latest album Low. ‘Sound and Vision’ was used by the BBC in the UK on trailers at the time, providing considerable exposure, much needed as Bowie opted to do nothing to promote the single himself, and helped the song to No.3 on the UK charts.
