September 10th, ON THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY

September 10th, THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY


September 10, 1954
Elvis performed at the Eagle's Nest, Memphis.
(In the audience the previous night was John Evans who at seven years old would listen to Dewey Phillips. When they heard that Elvis would be at the shopping center they went to watch. His brother held him up so he could see and he remembers them dressed as real weird country musicians with Elvis wearing pink and gray. He said, "They had a big string bass and the guy would twirl it around. There was only one amp and it was sitting on a chair with a little guy playing a big guitar." John would later achieve fame playing guitar and keyboards on the first Memphis pop record to go to No. 1 The Box Tops' "The Letter". Incidentally, Buddy Cunningham, the father of Bill Cunningham of the Box Tops, would be the first to play percussion on an Elvis session when he beat on several empty boxes during the recording of "I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine" at Sun Records. Elvis also recorded "Just Because" during this same session.) Thanks to Jennie for this info..
September 10, 1955
Elvis performed at the Louisiana Hayride, Municipal Auditorium, Shreveport.
September 10, 1956
Elvis continued the filming of Love Me Tender during the day. In the evening Elvis had a date with Natalie Wood.
AND
Record stores were swamped with requests for Elvis' "Love Me Tender" which had not been released yet.
September 10, 1963
Elvis reported for the shooting of some publicity pictures.
September 10, 1967
Elvis had some brief time between films and wanted to record some new songs and material for new singles as well as bonus songs to fill out the Clamback soundtrack album. One of the songs Elvis really wanted to do was Guitar Man. They fooled around with the song, but couldn't replicate Reed's guitar. So Reed was tracked down and asked to play along. The result of this session was stunning. Unfortunately there was a big misunderstanding about the rights of publishing and after playing on Big Boss Man as well, Reed stormed out. They all went on till 5.30 a.m. but the atmosphere was ruined.
September 10, 1969
Elvis flew to Las Vegas.
September 10, 1970
Elvis performed at the Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis, Missouri. For the very first time there was a sound system with onstage monitors which allowed Elvis to really hear himself. This was an improvement.

Out on the highway in one of his 3-wheeled motorcycles Elvis was ticketed by a policeman.
