Goethestrasse 14, Bad Nauheim, West Germany?

 

 

Either at the end of January or early February, the Elvis Presley party abandoned the cramped quarters and stern

atmosphere of the Hotel Grunewald, which catered mostly to elderly guests.

 

They moved to a three-story, five-bedroom, white stucco house at 14 Goethestrasse, nearby. The landlady, Frau Piper,

charged them an exorbitant rent of $800 a month, while she continued to maintain a room in the house both to serve

as housekeeper and to oversee her new tenants. Not long after the move, a sign was put up at the gate that read: 'Autogramme von 19:30 - 20:00" (Autographs 7:30-8:00 P.M.).

Rex Mansfield recalled that one friday afternoon he was going home with Elvis for the weekend and they stopped by the military pharmacy on post. Elvis handed over some cash and walked away with roughly four quart-sized bottles filled with Dexedrine. Not too soon after, Rex took them as well.

RCA released another album that contained no new material. The concept behind it was to release tracks that were not previously available on LP.

"For LP Fans Only" (LPM-1990) This was the first album ever not to use the artist's name on the front cover.

The front cover used a "Love Me Tender" publicity shot while the rear cover used an army photo of Elvis in full dress uniform.

Songs:

Side 1: "That's All Right", "Lawdy, Miss Clawdy", "Mystery Train", "Playing For Keeps", "Poor Boy".

Side 2: "My Baby Left Me", "I Was the One", "Shake, Rattle and Roll", "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone", "You're A Heartbreaker".

RCA Victor (LPM-1990)

Possible "Publicity Shoot", Bad Nauheim, West Germany.

The Colonel needed some publicity shots of Elvis in uniform. This could be the day for these photos. 

 

"Holiday On Ice Revue", Frankfurt, West Germany.

Elvis attended the Holiday on Ice Show once again in Frankfurt. He had become friendly with a number of the skaters and visited backstage.

Janie Wilbanks, the girl that Elvis met at the Memphis train station when the troop train passed through, had come to Germany to visit her uncle, an army chaplain, and stayed with Elvis for nearly a week at around this time. On most Sundays, Elvis, Red, Lamar, Rex, Charlie Hodge and some of their other friends played touch Football on a vacant lot down the street.

The representative of a German film company came to the house and tried to persuade Elvis to sing just one song in an upcoming production. Elvis explained that he was hesitant to do anything that might lead to resentment on the part of his fellow soldiers. In passing, he expressed almost equal concern about fan resentment when he was unable to sign autographs.
