Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley died 33 years ago today in Memphis.

The faithful are turning out in his hometown to remember him.

Here's one of my Elvis favorites from his early years.

It's his 1954 cover of  "Good Rockin' Tonight"

I can never listen to it without also thinking of Wynonie Harris, who first recorded "Good Rockin'" (video below) some 6 or 7 years earlier.

RIP Elvis and Wynonie.

And in case you missed it, here's my story of Presley's visit to Miami in August 1956, 21 years before his death.
