Elvis Presely Early Live TV "Blue Suede Shoes"

Here is an ancient clip of Elvis Presley performing his hit "Blue Suede Shoes" on the Milton Berle show 4/3/1956.

If you've spent any time looking around on our MindsiMedia YouTube station you've seen that we pay our respects to the cultural icon that is Elvis Presley. Although not a huge fan of his music growing up I always respected him for his contributions. Then in the 1980's I took an unused bathroom in a record store I worked in and turned it into an Elvis shrine. It quickly taught me the power of his myth as reporters and tv crews soon beat a path to our doors. Along with new customers that helped us make what was then the rough transition from records to cds.
On MindsiMedia we have uploaded a handful of Elvis related videos, including a look at our Elvis shrine. You can find them at our Elvis playlist along with a host of other videos of or about "the King". Now in honor of his upcoming 88th birthday 1/8/35 we have scoured and our presenting some of my favorite videos from there.
