Elvis - april 28
The Colonel had arranged for Elvis to play a special matinee show for teenagers who for one
dollar not only got to see Elvis but were served one soft drink as well.
Elvis arrived in Los Angeles and checked into the penthouse apartment and the presidential
suit of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel with Gene and Junior Smith, George Klein,
Arthur Hooton and Bitsy Mott. The band remained at the downtown Knickerbocker Hotel.
Recording continued from 12.30 p.m. But due to new union rules regarding
length of sessions and prescribed breaks it was not an successful session and arrangements
were made to continue the following week at Radio Recorders where Elvis had always felt
more at home.
During Elvis' stay at home, movies were screened at the Crosstown Theater almost every night.
