“What may not be so obvious is that Elvis, such a ‘moral threat’ when he first appeared on the national scene in 1956, may not have been so readily accepted by such powerful impresarios as Ed Sullivan had the Jordanaires not lent Presley their sound and support,”. “In a sense, they risked their reputation in the gospel world by performing with him and giving him their stamp of approval. That was Gordon’s doing, all the way.”
