A little expensive for what you get IMO, but he does have an amazing amount of footage etc. Ive bought a couple of vcds from him and had no problems to speak of with regards to recieving goods.

I have the following comments about this list:

Las Vegas 7/31/69 Opening Show SB (no recordings of 7/31/69 are known to exist)

I really hate to see people reselling FTD and BMG releases:
Honolulu 3/25/61
Las Vegas 8/24/69 Dinner Show SB
Las Vegas 8/10/70 Opening Show SB
Las Vegas 8/11/70 Midnight Show SB
New York 6/10/72 Afternoon Show
New York 6/10/72 Evening Show
Honolulu 1/12/73 SB
Honolulu 1/14/73 SB
Las Vegas 12/13/75 Dinner Show
Las Vegas 8/24/74 Midnight Show SB
Murfreesboro 5/6/75
Tucson 6/1/76

What happened to the list?

Yes, I've dealt with Larry way back in the 80's.
He definitely has quite an extensive collection.
He was always honest and fair in my dealings with him.

The only comment I'll make, and this may have changed with the flood of soundboard recordings on the market; his assessment of sound quality was not always accurate.

Read the Guidelines ( especially #8 ).

I did business with Larry a couple of years ago for some audience recordings. Businesswise no complaints. Sound quality ratings somewhat exaggerated, but on the other hand the prices of cassettes were dirt cheap. One of my Ashville 75 shows (I think it was the 3rd one) was incomplete, when I contacted Larry about this, he said that his copy was incomplete and kindly offered to try to find a complete copy for me. I didn't take him up on his offer, figuring I'd track down a complete cd version on my own (which I never bothered to do). Bottom line: I would do business with Larry again without any reservations.

That probably isn't the case. I'd bet that L.P.'s operation is on the secret list of Elvis businesses we aren't supposed to talk about on the board. The fact that he makes nice profits off pirated FTD releases by reselling them on CDR doesn't help matters any, as I alluded to earlier. If we want to continue to receive nice products from FTD, this practice must be discouraged.

If you have the VCD Rare Elvis Vol1 you also have this footage.
