Here, following Big Mama Thornton’s, are two more takes.

Elvis Presley, “Hound Dog,” live (TV broadcast, Milton Berle Show), 1956

Vodpod videos no longer available.


The Rock and Roll Trio (with Johnny Burnette), “Hound Dog,” live (TV broadcast, Ted Mack and the Original Amateur Hour), 1956

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In 1952, the Burnette brothers and Burlison formed a group called The Rhythm Rangers at the time. Johnny Burnette sang the vocals and played acoustic guitar, Dorsey played bass and Paul Burlison played lead guitar. For economic reasons, in 1956, the three young men moved to New York, where they managed to get an audition with the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour. They won the competition three times in a row, which gained them a place in the finals, a recording contract with Coral Records and they officially became The Rock and Roll Trio.
