Elvis and RCA logo, 1955

I have been an Elvis Presley fan since the early days. This rare Elvis photo shows him “shakin’ all over” onstage in 1955. Notice the RCA sign overhead and the large “Nipper” logo used by RCA under the title of “His Master’s Voice” (HMV). RCA Victor used this insignia with permission from the British company. It is interesting to look at the proximity of the fans to Elvis during this appearance and it is also fascinating to look at the clothes we were all wearing at the time. Elvis exploded on the scene like a volcano in those days and revolutionized the music world. This photo was sent to me by James Roy, who is compiling one of the most thorough libraries of Elvis material that can be found  anywhere in the world. The photo is totally unique.
