Live recording Tahoe 1976 The 60's classic "the Letter&

Here is another interesting item that has bugged me from this engagement. Although my tapes could be missed marked as far as dates go, I know they are may of 1976. During a couple of these shows several fans are screaming out requests and are repeatedly asking for "the letter". Why?? Could it be elvis teased them with this song? Perhaps he sang a piece of it the previous december in vegas? I don't know, but it is weird that these fans are asking for this song, if he had never ever sung before in his life.

Are you sure it wasn't for "Love Letters"???

the letter, is clearly heard several times, not love letters.

i think they are requesting elvis to "pick up the letter",
fans would throw letters or notes on to the stage during the shows,
hoping that elvis would pick 'em up and read them.
i guess they would have had better luck if they used "liberty bells" .
