I'm guessing that the front photo was taken from the November '72 tour, while the back photo was taken in June '72.

On the topic of the “Moody Blue” album sleeve there’s a story in one of Sean Shaver’s books (“Photographing The King” if my memory is correct) saying that Elvis wanted a picture of himself playing the piano on stage as the album’s cover shot. I don’t know how much truth there is to this story, but Sean Shaver did take some photos of a slimmed down Elvis playing piano in the king of spades suit, during the December 1976 tour, and one of these photos would have made a good cover shot for the album.
