Scotty Moore Tears It Up With Elvis 60 Years Ago & More 1950's Music

Our YouTube station ChiTownSoundz features mainly Chicago musicians or performances but we do put up some oldies now and again. Recently we posted a number of gems from the past.There's Elvis Presley's first appearance on the Milton Berle show doing "Blue Suede Shoes". It was broadcast in April of 1956 from the decks of an aircraft carrier and features a wicked guitar solo by the recently departed Scotty Moore.His web site has a lot of photos and info about this gig. http://scottymoore.net/USSHancock.html




Next we have "I Walk The Line" by Johnny Cash the man in black is wearing all white on Tex Ritter's "Ranch Party" 1950's TV show.



For the final clip we move the time machine up 10 years for a look at the 13th Floor Elevators playing "Your Gonna Miss Me" poolside on Dick Clark's "Where The Action Is"


All this and more can be found on ChiTownSoundz visit us now.
