The above receipt, dated June 9, 1954, was for a two-sided acetate recording made by Elvis Presley. Sun records studio was originally called Memphis Recording Service opening in January 16 1950

Elvis cut two sides (master 0914-A and 0914-B) on Saturday, 6/5, and picked up his acetate dub on Wednesday, 6/9. This documentation is likely for a song like, perhaps, Casual Love Affair. The flipside is likely another slow country ballad with just Elvis on guitar, i.e. not Without You since Elvis paid for the acetate. The receipt is very similar to the one for I’ll Never Stand in Your Way It Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

Virgin Records releases the anti-establishment anthem “God Save The Queen” by The Sex Pistols. UK sales will reach over 150,000 in the first five days, despite the fact that major retailers refuse to sell the record and the BBC bans it from air-play. Against all odds, the single still reached #2 on the UK singles chart. It sold 200,000 copies in one week and peaked at No.2 on the UK charts behind Rod Stewart’s ‘I Don’t Want to Talk About It’. There have been persistent rumours, (never confirmed or denied), that it was actually the biggest-selling single in the UK at the time, and the British Phonographic Industry conspired to keep it off the No.1 slot.

At the Nashville club in London, Declan McManus made his stage debut as Elvis Costello.

Elvis Presley Movie Star

As a teenager, Elvis worked as an usher in a movie theatre, dreaming of being the hero on screen.

He dreamed of being the movie hero and being in movies, and as with making a genre of music his own, so too, did he have his own Star Vehicle Presley Formula Flick.

It was in that theatre Elvis sat while Dewey Phillips played the one sided singed “That’s All Right Mama” for the first time on air. He got so many calls to re-play that song, that he called the boarding house where the Presleys lived and a neighbour got the phone and got Gladys, who then ran out of the house, with Vernon to get their boy down to the radio station to do his first on air interview, over before he realized it was going on. Elvis Presley had a stutter that got incorporated into his singing.

Elvis Presley’ first being in a movie was a short concert film as an opening act with Pat Boone headlining in the Bill Randle Cleveland Disc Jockey Radio Personality – it was likely broadcast on regional television, screened once at a local high school and the film has disappeared into a private European collector’s hand at the last rumour.

Elvis Presley’s short film:

The Pied Piper of Cleveland: A Day in the Life of a Famous Disc Jockey (Documentary) (performer: “That’s All Right, Mama”, “Mystery Train”, “Good Rockin’ Tonight”)

 

Daily Elvis: October 20
