Who Or What Killed Elvis? Elvis Reveals! Elvis sings "You Gave Me A Mountain" very unusual way and This Performance revealed his feelings at the time Priscilla was in the audience during this show... A dramatic version just underlining the fact that all is not well with Elvis mentally tonight. The following dialogue confirms this. Elvis tells the audience that this song "has nothing to do with me personally or my ex-wife Priscilla." It gets more and more embarassing as Elvis talks about his divorce settlement and Mike Stone.

This tape is made up of live concert performances filmed in 1970 and 1972 for the films "That's The Way It Is" and "Elvis on Tour", but were not used in either film. The tape features several stellar live performances by The King.
The first half starts off with a several live performances filmed for "That's The Way It Is" in 1970 at The International Hotel in Las Vegas. In this half, Elvis churns out stunning performances of "The Wonder Of You", "Heartbreak Hotel", "Hound Dog", "Don't Be Cruel" and "Don't Cry Daddy". Elvis sings a powerful "In The Ghetto" and an emotional "Make The World Go Away". The second half features several songs from rehearsals. This half features Elvis running through his old songs. Elvis goofs on "I Was The One", but Elvis makes it worthwhile and nevertheless entertaining. He goes back to his days at Sun Records for "Baby Let's Play House", which rocks and rolls thanks to some stellar rhythm guitar playing by Elvis. Elvis then delves into his 1957 number one hit "Don't", which is funny yet sincere. He then goes back to his first RCA recording session with "Money Honey". The third and final half features live performances from 1972. These are my favorite ones. Elvis kicks off a rocking "All Shook Up", which is followed a nostalgic "Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel" medley, which is restarted 3 times because the camera guy didn't get a shot of Glend D. Hardin playing the intro on piano. After this comes a stunning "Are You Lonesome Tonight" that is the highlight of the tape. Elvis's voice is filled with painful regret and emotion.
The show ten gets back to the happy tunes with a stellar "I Can't Stop Loving You" in which Elvis belts out the last verse with flare. After that comes a towering "How Great Thou Art", which is the tape's other standout. The video's closing live performance is a flawless "Release Me" that sways with midtempo country blended in with uptempo rock. The credits feature Elvis rehearsing a brilliant "I Can't Stop Lovinng You" with the band.
These performances were certainly not forgotten. This is a stellar tape.
Elvis Presley's Rare Footges from Legendary Presley Concerts June 9, 1972 New York MSG Like A Prince From Another Planet...
NOTS:Over the four shows performed by Elvis many celebrities, including musicians, attended one of his shows most notably amongst them George Harrison, Art Garfunkel, David Bowie, all the members of both Ten Years After and Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. It had been reported that John Lennon had attended one of the shows, incognito, but in an interview in 1975 he denied ever seeing Elvis live in concert. Bruce Springsteen also attended one of the four shows, having signed his first record contract with Columbia Records earlier that week. Eddie Murphy also found the show very influential. After purchasing a copy he would lip-synch to the record in front of a mirror. Murphy states that it was Elvis that helped him decide to be a professional entertainer. Croatian/Yugoslavian pop star Mišo Kovač, highly influenced by the music of Elvis Presley, attended one of the shows, claiming afterwards that the show changed his self-perception. A musician who also felt the power of Presley's Garden shows was Paul Stanley, the rhythm guitarist and primary lead vocalist of the rock band Kiss who, as a struggling musician and part-time cab driver at night took numerous customers to, and from the Garden during the three days of Presley's NYC engagement. Hearing about and feeling the excitement directly from those who shared his numerous rides made him think very seriously about his future career, promising himself to one day fill the Garden, something which he accomplished with his band in early February of 1977, some 5 months before Presley's death.

ELVIS Aloha from Hawaii is a music concert that was headlined by Elvis Presley, and broadcast live via satellite around the world on January 14, 1973. It was watched by over one billion viewers worldwide and remains the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history. The concert took place at the International Convention Center Arena in Honolulu (now known as the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena) and aired in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe (who received the telecast the next day, also in primetime). Despite the satellite innovation, the United States did not air the concert until April 4, 1973 (the concert took place the same day as Super Bowl VII). The show was the most expensive entertainment special at the time, costing $2.5 million. As the event was the first-ever such performance to be broadcast live via satellite, Presley taped a January 12 rehearsal concert as a fail-safe in case anything went wrong with the satellite, during the actual broadcast - however, nothing went wrong during the January 14th broadcast. For both shows, Presley was dressed in a white "American Eagle" jumpsuit designed by Bill Belew. Audience tickets for the January 14 concert and its January 12 pre-broadcast rehearsal show carried no price. Each audience member was asked to pay whatever he or she could afford. The performance and concert merchandise sales raised $75,000 for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund in Hawaii. (Kui Lee was a Hawaiian composer who had died of cancer in 1966 while still in his thirties.) Presley performed a vast array of old and recent hits like "Steamroller Blues", "See See Rider", "Early Morning Rain", "Burning Love", "Blue Suede Shoes", "A Big Hunk o' Love", "Suspicious Minds", "Can't Help Falling in Love." He showed his vocal range and strength with ballads like the Beatles' "Something", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "It's Over", "Welcome to my World", "I'll Remember You" and especially during "What Now My Love". The show is probably most remembered for his performance of the "An American Trilogy". After the concert had finished and the audience had left, Presley recorded five songs on stage to be aired during the American airing of the show. The broadcast was directed by Marty Pasetta, who was then in charge of directing the Oscar ceremonies. In top vocal form, Presley was accompanied by: James Burton (lead guitar) Glen Hardin (piano) Ronnie Tutt (drums) John Wilkinson (rhythm guitar) Jerry Scheff (bass) J.D. Sumner & the Stamps Quartet (backup vocals) Kathy Westmoreland (backup vocals) Charlie Hodge (harmony) Sweet Inspirations (backup vocals) Joe Guercio & his Orchestra
