Across The Country - Hartford and ??

The volume on the recording changes noticeably when Elvis introduces Tony Brown. From that point forward, I don't believe we are hearing the Hartford show.

By the summer of '76, Tony's piano solo was a piece called Two Miles Pike. It's the familiar tune we heard him play in Pittsburgh and later in Indianapolis. When Tony first joined Elvis, in the spring of '76, he played a different song. On Across The Country, he does not play Two Miles Pike.

Elvis' speech also sounds quite a bit more slurred from the piano solo through the end of the show. The sound quality is also not nearly as crisp.

Has anyone attempted to identify the true dates(s) of these recordings?

Elvis introduces the daughter of Jacky Kahane at the show after the introductions.
Ask Kitten Kahane if you want a confirmation on what date her birthday is.

I bet it's 28 July.
Which means that happy b-day was performed at the show in Hartford.
Will listen to the show for differences in sound quality before and after the piano intro.
