Some Elvis Pictures I’ve Never Seen Before – Part 13

This is a nice picture of Carl Perkins and Elvis surrounded by fans wanting autographs. Carl certainly wasn’t blessed with outstanding hair like Elvis.

 

But Carl Perkins’ hair looked considerably better in 1982 in this photo with Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis.  They sure look like they are having fun.

 

How do you like this strong picture of Elvis? Believe it or not, it came from an online catalog image of a double-sided blanket throw. Very nice artwork.

 

Young Elvis in a wistful mood.

 

This is interesting. Somebody found these two photos and put them together on Pinterest. Tommy Dorsey blows the trombone with Frank Sinatra and Elvis decades apart. Very clever.

 

This photo makes me sigh. It does not look like the best of times for Elvis. I guess it was taken at the racquetball court because he is in a jump suit. Maybe not. Anybody know?

 

Definitely better times for Elvis in this picture. Wow. Of course, it is from the bordello scene in the ’68 Comeback Special.

 

That’s Elvis’ right hand behind his head. Look what some joker did with this picture.

 

 

The caption on this one said it was taken on July 1, 1966 at the MGM Studios in Culver City, CA. Elvis looks younger than his 31 years. In fact, he struck me as a college student carrying books across campus. That reminded me I had a couple of similar photos of Elvis in other collegiate-looking wardrobes.

 

This is Elvis on his 22nd birthday.

 

Here he looks absolutely preppy.

 

And in a role reversal, Elvis is now the teacher for a group of teenagers

 

The first thing that attracted me to this photo was Elvis’ big eyes. But just for fun, we could say that fellow in the bottom left was taking a selfie of himself and Elvis.

If selvies had been around during Elvis’ time, he would have been in a ton of them.

 

I’ve already posted my favorite picture of Scottie Moore and Elvis. This one of James Burton and Elvis is excellent because they are both atypical. James is not playing the guitar, and Elvis is playing the piano. That’s a nice smile on James, while Elvis shows the emotion he is putting into the song.

 

I couldn’t find out the story behind this. You can see there is an Elvis timeline in the background, so the original must be much bigger for people to be able to see the images, and especially to read the text.

.

This came from a trading card. It appears to be colorized, so we don’t know whether Elvis really had brown hair when it was snapped. But he does look good.

 

Well, Movie Life magazine got this one wrong. I would love to read all the bogus stuff they had to say about Elvis and Ann Margret being married.

 

Let’s end with a bonus picture on the 50th anniversary of the USA landing on the moon.

 

It’s hard to believe I’ve found enough new pictures to do this 13 times.   I like doing these posts, and it seems like you readers like them, too.
