Elvis Presley #1, his first performances

Just a few weeks and it's 30 years ago Elvis 'the king' died.
I suppose there will be a lot of BLoggers who will remember that day in their own way.
I plan to make a short serie of Elvis. Here's my first contribution. Here it all started.

In Memphis a local boy liked music, played a little guitar. Rocorded in Sam Phillips studio on July 18, 1953 'My Happiness & That's When Your Heartaches Begin' and gave that acetate recording to his mother as an extra birthday present.
Performed on stage as a beginner. But everyone was immediately in love with the guy, especially the girls. Performed in the open air on several occasions but his breakthrough came in the Lousiana Hayride in 1955.
On this picture you see on the left Scotty Moore, in the middle 'gentleman' Jim Reeves and on the right Elvis.

Today I present The Complete Louisiana Hayride Archives (although I have a few more ...), a narrated 100 minutes of listening pleasure.
So quickly move, as always, to my personal 'archives' : the comment section.

Of course you understand to replace twice the '#' in an 'a' !!

Pass : JD_070726

File is a small 90MB, 'cause the songs are only in 128kbits

When you see this in Google cache (or alike) you actually have to go to my BLog and this comment otherwise you cannot copy/paste this ! If you don't wanna come to me of course you can also write it down ...... :-)
So go back to 'Google search' and click on my main 'Blog link' instead of the 'Google cache'.

Hi anonymous, can't you even copy/paste a pass ????

Pass must be : 070726

So only the 6 digits !! Sorry !!
EDIT !!!!

The correct archive link is :
It is with great pride that I say my father played the Louisiana Hayride with these greats. I am glad you have this site it is becoming a lost legacy in music. My Father played as "The Alabama Flash" aka Jimmy Robinson, aka George "Jimmy" Dupree.

He passed several years ago but played music through his final days.
His Casket was drawn with flowers forming a "Guitar".

Thank you
Jim Dupree Jr.
Nice memories Jim !
One of the little, to me important, things my Blog is intended for : by this your father will also be remembered on the internet.
I would like to get in touch with Jimmy Dupree Jr. I'm so sorry to hear about his death. We hung out together in the 70's I have one of Jimmy 33 RPM records. One side has a song that Jimmy wrote himself entitled "So Long I'm Gone" I also have a picture of Jimmy when he was young and was working with a agent out of Nashville and a cassette with Jimmy singing and playing guitar and piano.
