how jd sumner and elvis presley invented rock'n roll ... ...


peace in the valley, written by thomas a dorsey (see 3.02, at 00.49) is sung here in 1955 by the blackwoods, with jd sumner, bass extraordinaire/next is sumner with his own group, the stamps (1967)/he was presley's first idol, but elvis was a deep barytone/presley was often seen backstage of blackwoods' concerts, and dreamed of joining them/in presley's tv version (1957), the gospel group singing peace in the valley is the jordanaires (the blackwoods were probably too expensive) ...
