January 12, On this day in Elvis history


 

January 12, 1955
Elvis performed at the City Auditorium, Clarksdale, Mississippi. This marked a 2 weeks touring with Jim Ed and Maxine Brown, booked by Bob Neal.
January 12, 1957
Elvis started with his first session in 4 months at Radio Recorders. RCA had been anxious for some time to get new material for both a single and a gospel EP, but Elvis had been unwilling to record in Nashville. He worked from noon tot 7.00 p.m. completing 5 songs, including Don't Be Cruel, All Shook Up and I Believe.
January 12, 1960
Elvis, Joe Esposito, Cliff Gleaves, Lamar Fike and Jurgen Seydel traveled to Paris. During this visit they attended 5 karate classes given by Tetsuji Murakami, a Japanese teacher of the shotokan technique. 
During this trip Elvis went to see the American Golden Gate Quartet to whom he had been reintroduced in Germany by Charlie Hodge. After the show, he sat backstage with the group, happily singing one gospel after another.
January 12, 1963
The soundtrack to "Girls! Girls! Girls!" hit #3 in the U.S. 
January 12, 1964
Elvis arrived on his motorcycle at RCA's Studio B in Nashville at 6.30 p.m. He started off this 5 hour session by sending out for a take-out order for all. After re-recording Ask Me and Memphis Tennessee, from the may session, he delivered a moving performance of It Hurts Me. This ballad would remain a personal favorite for several years.
January 12, 1968
 NBC vice-president Tom Sarnoff announced that Elvis and NBC had agreed to produce an Elvis movie and a Christmas TV special for the 1968 Christmas season. 
January 12, 1970
Still rehearsing on Sunset in Las Vegas Elvis worked every night except for Sunday for 5 nights. Generally he arrived at the studio about 7.00 p.m. and worked then for 5 or 6 hours.
January 12, 1972
Elvis flew to Los Angeles.
January 12, 1973
On this special day Elvis attended an extra rehearsal at the International Convention Center Arena to check out some technical difficulties. He would perform on a stage with a long runway extending out into the audience and a giant flashing figure of Elvis as the backdrop.
The show started at 8.30 p.m. and this was billed as a dress rehearsal and taped in case there were problems with satellite transmission the next night. The repertoire for each show was identical. No admission was charged, but contributions were expected and a goal of $25,000 for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund had been announced.
January 12, 1974
Elvis flew to Los Angeles.
