In 1956 came musical phenomenon likes of which the world had never before See. Elvis Aaron Presley, poor, twenty-one year old boy from Nashville, Tennessee with ducktail haircut, smoldering good looks and deep blue eyes, takes the world by storm. His seductive, wide-ranging voice, and tunes that combine black rhythm and blues with country music, electrify the youth of America, starve for fresh sound. Heartbreak Hotel, released by RCA Victor in January 1956, and Elvis Presley's eponymous debut LP release two months later, were instant successes. Both rocket to the top of Billboard charts, and stay there for weeks. On stage, Presleys ' singing prowess and sexually-charge performances wow teenagers, and shock the deeply conservative American establishment. After his first album was release, Presley's career, astutely managed and promoted by Colonel Tom Parker, went into overdrive with multiple appearances by young singers on US nationwide television, including CBS Stage Show, Milton Berle Show, and Steve Allen Show. Estimate 60 million viewers watched Presley perform on the iconic Ed Sullivan Show in early September 1956. At this appearance, Presley sang the title song of his up-coming movie Love Me Tender for the first time in public. Advance sales of songs go gold before the movies are released by 20 Century Fox in November. Owing to the wild success of his first appearance on his show, Sullivan invited Presley back twice more over the next four months. Many of his viewers were in Canada, able to pick up American television signals. Now a celebrity, Presley went on a multi-city eastern tour in March 1957 which took him and his backup group, Jordanaires, to Fort Wayne, Louis, Philadelphia, Buffalo, and, across the border for the first time, to Toronto and Ottawa. Other than a stop in Vancouver later that year, it was the only time Presley was to perform outside of the United States. After back-to-back Show at Maple Leaf Gardens wearing his famous Nudie Cohen-design gold lame suit in front of 30 000 adoring fans, Presley and his entourage boarded an overnight train to Ottawa. They arrived in the nation's capital at 8am on 3 April 1957. Ottawa Journal disparagingly reports that Presley skips lightly like a girl through Ottawas downtown Union Station, passing bemused and largely unmoved commuters on his way to awaiting taxi. The singer was described as red-eyed and rumpled with sleep, with traces of makeup and what looked like mascara failing to hide tired lines around wobble-singers Grecian nose. Presley, who looked like any Canadian boy who needs a haircut, was wearing a dark suit, and velvet shirt, covered by a crumpled rosy beige raincoat, with smudgy white buckskin shoes. Protect by flying Wedge of police guards and his entourage, he was taken by taxi to an undisclosed location for some much needed sleep, safe from the prying eyes of teenaged fans who were laying siege to city hotels in hopes of catching a glimpse of the young singer.
