March 11, 1955 Elvis performed at the Jimmie Thompson's Arena, Alexandria, Louisiana.

March 11, 1960 Elvis had his hair dyed black and then gave Elizabeth driving lessons in the yellow Lincoln he had bought for her to use. Charlie Hodge and Joe Esposito came to Graceland too and were joined by Red West and Cliff Gleaves a little later.

March 11, 1964 Elvis begged Roustabout' director John Rich to let him do his own fight scenes. Of course there was an accident and Elvis required stitches to sew up the cut above his eye. However, there were no shooting days lost, because the motorcycle accident was already filmed and Elvis' cut could well be the result of that.

March 11, 1968 Elvis returned to Western Recorders to cut the vocal for "Almost In Love".

March 11, 1974 Elvis performed at the Coliseum, Hampton Roads, Virginia.

March 11, 1975 Elvis went into the RCA studio again, and worked just like the day before. He recorded 4 masters once again, including "TROUBLE" and "Shake A Hand".

My fav lyrics from "shake a hand"

Be truthful to me,
I'll be truthful to you
I'm in love with you so
Till I don't know what to do


Here are the full Lyrics


(words & music by Joe Morris)
Just leave it to me
Don't ever be ashamed
Just give me a chance
I'll take care of everything

Your troubles I'll share
Let me know and I'll be there
I'll stay close to you
Anyplace and anywhere

Shake a hand, shake a hand
Shake a hand if you can

Be truthful to me,
I'll be truthful to you
I'm in love with you so
Till I don't know what to do

So, let's call it a day
I said all I have to say
Except don't forget to pray
And shake a hand ev'ry day

Shake a hand, shake a hand,
Shake a hand if you can

March 14, 1956 Elvis performed at the Fox Theater, Atlanta, Georgia, at 4:30, 7:18 and 10:06 p.m. Elvis arrived at the theater for an 11:30 a.m. dress rehearsal.

March 14, 1958 Elvis and his entourage got off the train in Dallas and rented Cadillacs for the drive to Memphis. Back at Graceland a reporter asked Elvis how his parents felt about his going into the army. Elvis admitted that his mother was very upset about that, like all mothers. On the question of whether his popularity would fade during his absence Elvis responded: " That's the sixty-four-dollar question. I wish I knew."

March 14, 1958 On this day in 1958, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the first gold record. It was Perry Como’s Catch a Falling Star on RCA Victor Records. The tune became the first to win million-seller certification, though other songs dating as far back as the 1920s may have sold a million records or more. Due to lack of a certification organization like the RIAA, they weren’t awarded the golden platter. One of the next three gold records that were certified after Perry Como’s million seller was "Hard Headed Woman" by Elvis Presley.

March 14, 1960 The cast of Holiday on Ice visited Graceland during the day. In the evening the Memphian was rent to screen some movies.

March 14, 1962 Elvis bought some jewelry from Harry Levitch, including a handmade fourteen-karat yellow gold diamond tie tack.

March 14, 1963 Publicity stills were taken in the morning and Hal Wallis approved a request from Elvis to keep 2 of the black silk shirts and the flamenco outfit that he wore in the movie.

March 14, 1974 Elvis performed at the Middle Tennessee State University Athletic Center, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

March 16, 1974 Elvis performed at the Mid-South Coliseum, Memphis, Tennessee at 2:30 and 8:30 p.m. This was Elvis' first appearance in his hometown since 1961 and the 4 shows that were initially booked, were sold out immediately. So the Colonel added a fifth one, which were the perfect occasion for a live homecoming album and so the perfect way to avoid having to coax Elvis back into the studio. Elvis seemed both happy and mildly amused to be there and he declared: "Hello Memphis. It's good to be home".

March 16, 1975 This day was the first of a 3 day rehearsals period beginning each day at noon. Like always Elvis tried a lot of songs which were never performed on stage.
