Strictly Elvis No. 2 (June, 1968)
Provided by Paul Richardson
Welcome to the 2nd issue of ROCKY BARRA‘s legendary STRICTLY ELVIS!
One of the highlights of this issue is the article written by Judy Palmer. She met Elvis over 40 times and talked to him on 9 occasions, and all in the space of only a few weeks in early 1968! It is most fascinating to read how extremely friendly (and funny!) Elvis was with his fans.
Sit back and relax, and let Rocky guide you through the months that would launch Elvis’ career to it’s highest peak since the late 50’s. Enjoy!

Judy can be seen to the right, and her friend Sandy is on the left.
“We asked him to say hello to Priscilla for us, and he turned toward the house and yelled ‘Hello Priscilla!’“.
Judy is wearing the (nowadays rare) I’m A Kissin’ Cousin button from 1964.
My sincere thanks and respect goes to ROCKY BARRA.
