Elvis Presley made his third and final appearance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ on this day 60 years ago--but censors, concerned with previous, provocative performances, insisted he be shot only from the waist up!
Elvis Presley went to Sun Studios on this day in 1954 to record two acetates as a gift for his mother, Gladys. “I’ll Never Stand in Your Way” and “It Wouldn't Be the Same Without You” remain fascinating examples of Elvis’ early work, before he moved away from country music toward rock and roll.
