Image result for Elvis december 12, 1955
According to Bill E. Burk, the show was booked by Bobby Ritter, a dee jay for WTUP in Tupelo, who also reputedly booked Elvis for others shows in Mississippi, including Bruce and Tupelo. “He (Elvis) was always late on stage, it seemed,” said Ritter. “On those nights when he would arrive late, Bob Neal and I would go on stage. Bob would be the comedian and I the straight man and we tried to keep the folks entertained until Elvis got there, but they didn’t want to hear us.”

Carl Perkins remembers the Amory concert well.
Perkins and Elvis had driven to Amory together from a concert the night before in Helena, Arkansas. En route, they were discussing music and both mentioned how much they liked singing the song, Only You, made popular by the Platters.
During his time on the Amory stage, someone in the audience shouted, “Only You, Carl.”
“You got it, hoss,” Carl snapped back, and sang his version of the song.
Perkins had the house jumping and they weren’t ready for him to leave the stage when the time came.
Backstage, Perkins found Elvis sitting, head in hands, shutting out the world.
“You feelin’ okay?” he asked Elvis.
“Aw, ain’t no need in me goin’ on,” Elvis replied. “They’re ready for you. What’d you do Only You for?”
Challenged, Perkins snapped, “’Cause I wanted to. ‘Cause I can sing it. There’s two reasons. You want another one?”
“Well, I was gonna do it,” Elvis told his fellow Sun partner.
“Well, go on out there and do it,” Perkins commanded.
“Hell, the Platters are singin’ it somewhere tonight.”
“I ain’t that big a damn fool,” a sulking Elvis said. “I ain’t goin’ out there and sing something you done sung. You done tore ’em all to pieces. I might as well go on to the car. “
Ritter and a partner had seen this interplay. Ritter made a five dollar bet, that despite the audience’s reaction to Perkins, Elvis would come out the crowd winner at the end.
“Walking toward the stage, Elvis asked me what we had been talking about,” said Ritter. “I told him about the bet.”
When Elvis walked on, the crowd was still shouting “We want Carl! We want Carl.”
Elvis, said Ritter, seemed to become overly motivated.
“He went wild. He sang, he was all over that stage. He was down on his knees. He was attacking that guitar.
“And it wasn’t long before he had ’em eatin’ outta his hands!”
When he re-entered the backstage area, Elvis winked at Ritter and said, “Go get your five dollars!”
By this time, Elvis had signed with RCA and the concert in Amory would be the last time the three acts would appear together – Carl Perkins was days away from audition the “Blue Suede Shoes” for Sam Phillips and cut it at Sun.
 Sometime in the fall of 1955, Carl and Johnny shared a bill at the Armory in Amory.  It was reputedly on this show that Johnny suggested that Carl write a song based on a phrase he had heard. Cash told Perkins of a black airman whom he had met when serving in the military in Germany. He had referred to his military regulation air shoes as “blue suede shoes.” Cash suggested that Carl write a song about the shoes. Carl replied, “I don’t know anything about shoes. How can I write a song about shoes?
While playing in Jackson, Tennessee several nights later, he saw a dancer in the crowd trying to keep his girlfriend away from his new blue suede shoes, which connected with the idea that Cash had given him and leads his writing lyrics and subsequently he and his brothers worked up an arrangement.

Farewell From Vegas
After the show of December 12, 1976 Elvis broke down in his dressing room and cried. He had talked with Rex Humbard, televangelist, about the lack of meaning of the life he lead.
Humbard (who died aged 88 in 2007) recollected: “I took both his hands in mine and said: “Elvis, right now I want to pray for you”, “Please do”, Elvis said, and cried.”
Humbard performed Elvis’ funeral service.
 Elvis Presley : Las Vegas : December 12, 1976.
It is hard to imagine that it wasn’t good to be the King, but Elvis Presley, although he dominated radio, had successful movies and smash tv specials, the amount of money that passed through his hands made him the biggest individual driver of the American economy – supporting the recording and movie industry as much as in his private life, he hired his extended family and lucky outsiders who made his inner circle.
Elvis Presley didn’t go to church because he didn’t want to disrupt the service.
Elvis Presley also didn’t care for how all the Preachers and Minsters had their hands out for money – and certainly, there was no comfort in their religion.
Elvis Presley publicly maintained that he was a Christian and that is really all that it takes for a person to be a member of a group – he did explore and study a range of religions = he had a lot of Jewish friends and he was deeply into eastern philosophies much to the disinterest of his inner circle who wanted to party and not have Elvis read -preach and try to spiritualize the group around him, probably as a means to reduce his guilt at the rather hedonistic life he did lead – offset by his extreme generosity to a wide range of charity groups.
Mostly. it’s getting away from that binary thinking and Elvis could have done better if he had stood up for his aspirations, and that was the biggest issue I think for him – everyone thought Elvis was an alpha male, but he really wasn’t – he was the guy in the corner with a guitar and he managed to be so good that the centre of attention shifted to him, rather than him stepping up into it.

A spokeswoman for Apple records confirmed the release of 59 rare and unheard Beatles recordings in a bid to stop their copyright protection expiring. EU law protects recordings for 70 years, but only if they get an official release. Otherwise, the copyright period lasts 50 years. In the case of The Beatles, that means the master tape for their 1963 debut album “Please Please Me” is protected until 2033, but the unreleased session tapes for that album are not.
