1972-11


Ed Bonja

Greensboro,NC. April 14th 1972. As you already know this concert was filmed by MGM for inclusion in the movie "Elvis On Tour". Some of the sequences used in the movie from that date are: Bridge Over Troubled Water, American Trilogy and Funny How Time Slips Away. Twenty years later "Release Me" was included into the "Lost Performances" video.

San Bernardino,CA. November 13th 1972. This suit became known as the "Owl jumpsuit" because of the owl's head on the belt buckle, Elvis is also referring to this in the movie "Elvis On Tour". Depending of the stage lighting, this jumpsuit could look different colors ranging from dark blue to a lighter shade of blue. This suit was displayed in Graceland in 1997 and the actual color is purple. If you look at the picture from Greensboro on top, the jumpsuit looks indeed purple but appears dark blue in the movie and much closer to the photo above in "Lost Performances" video.
