Elvis Presley Letters from Omaha in 1956 – Elvis History Blog

Marjorie Howe’s concert review, published in theJournal on May 24, 1956. The headline read, “Teenagers Like Presley’s Antics—But Others Do Not!” Miss Howe clearly was in the latter group. “His performance was the most disgusting exhibition this reporter has ever seen,” she declared. “Elvis Presley is the male counterpart of a hoochee-koochee dancer in a burlesque show. The writhing goes on while Presley is singing Blue Suede Shoes or Hound Dog, but his frenzied singing and guitar strumming are only incidental to the act. In fact, the singing can barely be heard above the crowd noise for every paroxysm brings a fresh outbreak of shrieks from the audience.”

Howe took time off from her criticism of Elvis’s act to censure the singer’s appearance. “He has a sulkey look and his infrequent smile is almost surly,” she observed. She added (Elvis fans, take a deep breath now), “He wears long sideburns and is beginning to get fat.”

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

August 8, 1960

Johnny Kidd And The Pirates topped the UK chart with “Shakin’ All Over”. The song was ignored across the pond until recorded by The Guess Who, who took it to #22 in America and #1 in their home country of Canada in 1965.

16 year old Bryan Hyland‘s novelty tune, “Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cash Box Best Sellers list. Songwriter Paul Vance said he got the inspiration for the song when he saw his two year old daughter at the beach in a tiny little swimsuit. The record reached #8 in the UK.

England’s Decca Records scrapped 25,000 copies of Ray Peterson’s “Tell Laura I Lover Her” because they felt the song, which recounts the last thoughts of a teenager dying from a car accident, was “too tasteless and vulgar.” A rival record company felt differently and recorded a cover version by a singer named Ricky Valance, which went to number one on the British chart. In the US, Peterson’s version reached number seven on the Billboard Pop chart.

Flaming Star  Elvis recorded four songs at Radio Recorders for Flaming Star between 8.00 p.m. and 4.00 a.m. Elvis was embarrassed by the material.

August 8, 1961

Elvis Presley released the single “(Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame” b/w “Little Sister.”

The relatively intense tune, featuring a Bo Diddley beat, performed well on both pop and easy listening stations, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 2 on the Easy Listening chart, based (at the time) on the Top 100. However, the single’s Hot 100 chart run was atypical of a Top Ten hit. In the autumn of 1961 it shot from 22 to 4, then dropped to 10, then 26, all within the space of four weeks. The single (a double A-side with “Little Sister“, as in the States) spent four weeks at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart[5] — one of Presley’s nine UK chart-toppers between 1960 and 1962.
