Someone asked me to describe some of the highlights, and I thought I might as well send my observations to you as well.
There’s footage from both the dinner & midnight show on February 23, 1972 in Las Vegas. Between these shows, Priscilla told Elvis that she was going to leave him. It’s interesting to see footage from ‘before and after’. No doubt that news must have weighted heavily on his mind during the midnight show.
Plenty of footage from New York ’72. Interesting to see film from the June 10, 1972 evening show, when the album was recorded. Presley is wearing the Eyelet suit, which is currently being auctioned. Pretty clear footage on the ‘That’s All Right’ opening w/ some neat close-ups.
El Paso November ’72 is good, and it includes ‘I’ll Remember You’. Lovely. There’s also a one-liner of ’Old Shep’. Elvis mentions that he will do a lot of the old songs, and he jokingly sings: ”When I was a lad…”.
Seattle ’73 has a surprising starring role for Colonel Tom Parker, who walks in front of the camera several times, as if he is checking out what is going on.
There’s a snatch of ‘Reconsider Baby’ in the Ft. Wayne ’72 footage. So cool to actually see him perform it on this tour. At the beginning of this show, the strap of his guitar seems broken, and he hands it back to Charlie. He performs ‘That’s All Right’ without it, except briefly during JB’s guitar solo.
San Diego ’70 is dynamite, Elvis was a fireball on stage back then. Lots of action.
Nice to see three clips from the March ’74 tour, with Elvis in good form. There’s also two clips from October ’74, where you can see that the energy levels have dropped a notch or two. He seems fine again though in the clips from April & May ’75.
