Elvis Presley: Racism vs Sexism – a sexuality social cocktail

During his childhood, he was literally the last white house on the bad white street on the wrong side of town.

so, every morning, when he step outside of his particular square shack divided into two rooms, each with an outhouse in back.

if he turned one way, it was the next white kid to play with

and if he turned the other, it was the first black kid on the next block

he had pals on both sides

his early childhood was not segregated at home, only at the school he went to, he crushed on every girl to the point that there was a schoolyard taunt guaranteed to make a girl cry – “elvis likes you”

ElvisWorld: The Memphis Mafia origins

and, in the 1970s, Elvis did actually date a black woman, he knew the public would never accept it so it was short and sweet; and the book that I read that in was written by Nancy Rook, a Graceland maid – so first hand source.

Now, the Lisa Marie and Jackson marriage, I have to say was actually legitimate romantically.

Sweet Inspirations Myrna Smith took Lisa Marie to see the Jackson 5 perform in Vegas in the 1970s.

Lisa Marie apparently told Myrna that she would marry Micheal Jackson and she told Lisa Marie, then 5 years old, that that was never gonna happen.

Myrna also dated one of Elvis’ MM Guys – Jerry Schilling.

that was in his inner circle – and even more

Surreal Memories: Elvis’ Memphis Mafia

Elvis used to hire Issac Hayes in his bar band era for his new year eve parties and he regularly helped people make contacts in the music and movie industry.

there is amazing film of Elvis meeting Roy Hamilton in 1969 – too bad there’s no sound! at the american sound studio

Elvis gave Roy one of the songs he was going to do – Angeline – and that turned out to be Hamilton’s last single.

Elvis imitated that which he held in esteem, he did not cynically copy for cash. that was why he was such a threat to the American status quo in 1950s post war economic boom of teens with cash and time – and it was big that he sang “black songs”, it was subversive because he sang black WOMEN’s songs.

Mama Thorton sang Hound Dog about her cheating man

Elvis, the cheating man, blamed the dog he was emulating, sang Hound Dog.

they were really a duet, dueling pov’s of nuance, part of the courtship dance of songs in the tradition of call and answer.

hit records often spawned novelty wanna be response songs.

Elvis the Pelvis was the fear of what he was doing to the white women.

Sinatra made them swoon, Elvis conducted orgy revivals in the 1950s,

The Blue Hawaii movie, the template of the Presley Picture.

I like to think of Elvis’s 1960s as doing world music before that became genre in the 1990s .

Elvis did hawaiian/calypso and latin bossa nova and european folk tunes into the middle 1960s and then at the end, he did some mild psychelic – Edge of Reality is a drug trip song from Easy Come Easy Go, and EuroDisco – City by Night from Double Trouble.

In the 1970s, he was all power ballads and swamp stadium rock on tour doing his Vegas Cabaret. He didn’t tour the world, the world came to Vegas to see Elvis.

I was re-watching the Elvis That’s the Way it Is new all Elvis version – and I think while a concert documentary is a good thing, that original version’s segment of the British Fan club made it documentary about the impact of Elvis and was explaining fandom, not Elvis, who was the ticket seller.

anyway, in the new version, there’s more concert footage and in one song Elvis is working the stage, doing the kisses

and women he kisses, men he shakes hands

and then, after a few women, he bends down to kiss the guy, who does not even react and there’s a audience laugh before Elvis shakes the guy’s hand. the band never breaks and Elvis doesn’t either

but it was an odd moment.

and most of all, there’s actual video on youtube of Elvis and Charlie Hodge with Elvis singing Are you lonesome tonight and Hodge is doing stereotype mincing routine, making Elvis laugh and flub the song, in the Elvis bootleg world, it’s even refered to as “Lonesome Tonight The Gay Version” – although Elvis does not change the lyrics.

it seems more like an in joke being played on the audience, rather than homophobic joke the audience is in on.

and that was from the era where fans had to sneak in rolls of film and camera which was often in 2 parts and heavy to carry and clunky to hide.

in any case Jailhouse Rock was the first gay #1 rock n roll song.

Jails were not coed, the writers wrote it to see if Elvis would reject it, they didn’t want to write for him until his Hound Dog disc cheques cleared.

Elvis delivered the song with the same searing sexuality as all his other teenage heavy petting 1950s songs

Walking in Memphis: Cher as Elvis!

Elvis was too pretty to be straight; while he was enlightened about ethnicity, he was sexist about women.

 

also, I believe that Elvis Presley was bisexual. His relationship with Nick Adams as an example

Book Review: Rebel & The King Expanded

but also his Memphis Mafia guys – all more masculine than Elvis

Elvis was in control of the access to women, which was why the MM guys flocked to him, for the overflow and pulling power. And, there are all the Memphis Mafia tell all books, with the obligatory orgy party scenes, Elvis as sexual conductor; and each of them saying that there was more, that they would take to their graves.

Bisexual is pretty much the only thing not officially printed, but so long published that in the 1950s, Mexico had a riot at movie theatre to protest King Creole on the basis of Elvis being homosexual as well as a false quotation about Elvis being racist towards Mexican and Black People. Which is as false as the shoe shine quote.

Glen Campbell’s Lost Album ‘Sings For The King,’ With Tracks For …

In the years between 1964 and 1968, during which he’d score his first hits as a solo artist, Campbell recorded studio versions of songs written with Presley as the intended artist, as he could skillfully imitate Presley’s delivery. Many of those songs were penned by songwriters Ben Weisman and Sid Wayne, with Weisman notably scoring a record 57 total cuts with Presley. The album’s executive producer Stephen Auerbach found reel-to-reel tapes containing the recordings of Weisman and Wayne’s songs in a storage space belonging to Weisman, his uncle by marriage.

Of the 18 songs on the new release, 12 were actually recorded and released by Presley, including “Stay Away Joe,” “Spinout” and “Easy Come, Easy Go,” the lost Campbell version of which is available for streaming now. Sings for the King also includes the gospel song “We Call on Him,” newly rendered as a duet between Campbell and Presley.

9 Famous Airplanes On Sale At Collectors Auctions You Could Have Had – Robb Report
Whether it’s a car, home, jewelry, or piece of art, if an item going to auction has some kind of celebrity cachet, chances are good that it will garner additional attention—and perhaps draw higher bids. Consider, for example, the 1962 Lockheed JetStar that Elvis Presley owned briefly in the mid-1970s. After the King sold the aircraft in 1977, it sat on a runway in New Mexico for more than 35 years, collecting dust and rust. Nevertheless, when the plane went to auction in 2017, it sold for $430,000.

Even though the price was well below the $2 million presale estimate, it was still a lot to pay for an aircraft that couldn’t fly and needed a complete interior and exterior restoration. And, in fact, it was too much to pay. It seems the new owner experienced buyer’s remorse, because the JetStar went back on the block this past summer. There’s no word from the auction company, IronPlanet, on whether the seller made back his money.

The JetStar is not the only Elvis plane to go to auction, and it’s not the only one with a celebrity or pop-culture connection that helped it fetch plenty of notice, though not necessarily the owner’s asking price. The following aircraft became famous because of a role they played in a movie, on TV, or in real life, and at one time or another, each was available to the highest bidder.

Elvis Presley Lisa Marie plane at Graceland

Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II

On the block in 2015
Sold together for a reported $15 million

Elvis fans breathed a sigh of relief in 2015 following the sale of his two jets—Hound Dog II and the Convair 880 that Presley named Lisa Marie after his daughter—because the new owner reached a “permanent” agreement to keep the aircraft at Graceland in Memphis, where they have been loved tender since 1984.

Elvis purchased the plane that would eventually bear the name Lisa Marie—a Convair 880 narrow-body airliner—from Delta Airlines in 1975 for $250,000. He spent another $350,000 refurbishing it. The custom interior includes a queen-sized bed, a bathroom with gold faucets and a gold washbasin, a videotape system linked to four televisions, a stereo system with 50 speakers, and a conference room. The tail section of the plane is emblazoned with the initials TCB—taking care of business. The plane last carried passengers in 1977, when it flew Priscilla Presley and George Hamilton, a good friend of Elvis, from California to his funeral at Graceland.

Like the plane in New Mexico that once belonged to Elvis, Hound Dog II is a Lockheed JetStar. Elvis bought it for about $900,000 in 1975 while waiting for the refurbishment of Lisa Marie to be completed.

The album cover, showing the band crossing the street just outside the recording studio, will become one of the most imitated in recording history. The zebra crossing itself has become so popular with Beatle fans, it has its own webcam.  In their interviews for The Beatles Anthology, the surviving band members stated that, although none of them ever made the distinction of calling it the “last album”, they all felt at the time this would very likely be the final Beatles product and therefore agreed to set aside their differences and “go out on a high note”.
