March 4, 1955, Elvis Presley, Scotty Moore and Bill Black Signed Promotional Photo - Also Signed by Floyd Cramer and Jimmy Day - An Incredibly Rare Autographed Artifact

The offered signed photo, which includes the signatures of Elvis, Scotty Moore, Bill Black, Floyd Cramer and Jimmy Day, is accompanied by a letter from the young lady from De Kalb, Texas, who had it signed at the March 4, 1955 show by the five band members. It reads, in part:

“To tell you the truth, I don’t remember much about the actual concert, but I’ll always remember the thrill of having Elvis place his picture on my back to sign it!” Elvis’ signature is the largest and boldest of the signatures on the reverse of this promotional Elvis photo. It’s evident from this strong signature that even at this early stage of his career, Elvis was already becoming quite adept at signing his name in almost any setting.

While Elvis worked on Roustabout ; Variety reviewed  Kissin Cousins with:

“This new Elvis Presley concoction is a pretty dreary effort, one that certainly won’t replenish the popularity of Sir Swivel. Presley needs—and merits—more substantial material than this if his career is to continue to flourish as in the past. A few more like this and Cuhnel Parker may have to press the panic button.”
